RF micro-needling, or radiofrequency micro-needling, is the next-generation of fractional skin resurfacing that creates a pattern of tiny micro-injuries to a fraction of the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. These micro-ablations stimulate a natural healing response, leading the skin to repair itself and produce new collagen and elastin, the building blocks of smooth, youthful looking skin, resulting in noticeable improvements in texture, tone, and pigmentation.
This is an outpatient treatment that is performed after our aesthetic nurse cleanses your skin and applies a topical anesthetic. Depending on the condition of your skin, the degree of discomfort may vary, but settings can be adjusted to minimize discomfort so that you can have the most comfortable experience. Treatment is administered via a rolling hand piece for areas such as the face, neck, belly, flanks and more. A smaller stamp can be used around sensitive areas such as crow’s feet, lip lines and other more pronounced wrinkles. Unlike traditional laser-based skin resurfacing technologies, Opus Plasma precisely controls the time that the RF energy makes contact with the skin, minimizing the inflammation that typically contributes to longer recovery times.
