Scarlet RF – The Advantages of Radiofrequency Micro-needling vs. Traditional Micro-needling
Traditional micro-needling treatments claim to be the ideal procedure to reduce pore size, eliminate scarring, and rejuvenate the skin. With new advancements in aesthetic technology, traditional micro-needling is no longer seen as the frontrunner for treating acne scars. Radiofrequency micro-needling is a virtually new technology in aesthetic medicine. It can be used on all skin types to eliminate acne and reduce acne scarring while leaving the skin with a clear and youthful complexion.
Radiofrequency micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure. It uses gold-tipped microneedles to send radiofrequency energy to the lower layers of the skin. This thermal energy creates micro-injuries in the dermis without damaging the epidermis and therefore stimulates the production of collagen and elastin beneath the outer skin layers. The newly formed collagen and elastin is the key to reducing the appearance of acne scars.
With the epidermis being unaffected, the associated downtime with this treatment is minimal. Additionally, the pain induced during this procedure is more than with traditional micro-needling. Before treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treated area to aid in comfort during this procedure.
Scarlet’s radiofrequency micro-needling device was precisely created to treat scarring. It has a low risk of causing hyper or hypopigmentation. For the best results, we recommend patients receive three to six treatments spaced three to four weeks apart.
Scarlet radiofrequency micro-needling for active acne lesions and scars combined with ADVATx laser for toning and rejuvenation, make the ideal treatment.
