About RF Microneedling
Flower Mound, TX primary care and board-certified family medicine physician Dr. May Kim now offers radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with the Secret RF by Cutera. The benefit of adding RF energy to this microneedling technique is that it stimulates collagen production at a deeper level. Having existed for many years, RF technologies produce outstanding results in aesthetics, such as skin rejuvenation, by improving the texture, radiance, and firmness of aging skin with dermal remodeling. The heat that RF energy emits can encourage the formation of new collagen in the depths within the layers of your skin. At Family Center VitaleHEALTH, we frequently incorporate the Secret RF microneedling into our treatment plans for our patients who want smoother, healthier skin and a luminous complexion. Request a consultation with Dr. Kim to see if RF microneedling is appropriate for you.
If you are over the age of 40 or older, you may be developing more signs of aging now more than ever. RF microneedling might be an optimal treatment for you if you want to:
- Enrich your skin's texture, color, and tone
- Strengthen your skin as a preventive, anti-aging measure
- Address skin imperfections, like discoloration, acne scars, and vascular lesions
- Reduce the appearance of sun and environmental damage, mild wrinkles, and age spots
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more luminous look
- Improve the appearance of challenging skin conditions that seem resistant to change
Dr. Kim will set the microneedles of the Secret RF device to a customized depth for your skin. With various penetration depths to choose from (0.5 mm – 3.5 mm), Dr. Kim can adjust your treatment as necessary to address one or a combination of skin imperfections. Even at the deepest needle setting, the treatment is minimally invasive and will not harm your skin. She may also choose to use an insulated or noninsulated needle during your session.
If you prefer to have a topical numbing agent on your skin before your RF microneedling, please make Dr. Kim aware of this ahead of time (or have it included in your treatment plan). Once your skin has been prepared, Dr. Kim will turn on the device and perform touchpoints evenly on your treatment area. The needles will rapidly produce tiny holes or micro-injuries in your skin that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. The added bonus of the short bursts of RF energy that the needles emit will go deeper into the layers of your skin to further tissue coagulation and dermal remodeling. Not to worry, the device is temperature controlled and will still allow Dr. Kim to produce safe, cumulative results.
What to Expect
Your Secret RF microneedling treatment will produce pinpoint scabs on your skin, which can show up 24 – 72 hours post-treatment. This will naturally disappear when your skin has healed. It may take about a month for you to see your results. Dr. Kim may recommend one or several treatments at 30-day intervals for maximum benefit.
