Skin Rejuvenation Treatment London
Skin Rejuvenation (RF Microneedling)
We have chosen radio frequency (RF) micro needling which is a step up from micro needling using radio frequency, a form of heat energy, into the deeper skin layers whilst maintaining the integrity of the skin. This differs from laser rejuvenation as it does not cause damage to the surface of the skin with minimal downtime and no complications in regards to sun exposure.
The gold coated micro-needles pierce the skin and deliver RF energy beneath the epidermis. The trauma caused beneath the skin stimulates a healing response from the body which encourages collagen formation amongst other components of the body's natural healing process. As a result, you will see a tightening and plumping effect which improves with time.
You will notice results after two weeks. This healing process will continue over the next few months and you will continue to see results up to 6-9 months after your treatment. We aid this process by pumping active ingredients into your skin specific to your needs.
This treatment is particularly beneficial for acne scarring, it can also be used around the delicate eye area, décolletage, hands and any other body part you wish to treat.
How it works
Micro-needle Cartridge is placed on the surface of the skin
Micro-needles penetrate through the surface of the skin
Bipolar RF energy is directly applied to the target area
This stimulates Collagen regeneration and new elastic production processes begins
What are the advantages?
- Precise treatment and depth control for varying skin conditions
- Minimal damage to epidermis with low risk of side effects
- Fast recovery so minimal ‘down time’ after treatment
- Precisely controlled Bi-polar RF energy suits all skin types
Advantage compared to fractional laser
Fractional lasers penetrate the skin causing an inverse triangle of damage to the epidermis. The deeper the target area the more extensive the damage.
But the RF Aesthetics ‘Secret’ delivers precisely controlled RF energy only to the target areas, adjusting the depth selectively with minimally invasive micro-needles. This means minimal damage to the skin epidermis, shorter treatment times and less pain with faster recovery times.
Before and After
Who can benefit from it?
Anyone with early signs of ageing, anyone who wants to stimulate collagen and people with more severe skin problems like acne scarring, loose skin, sun damage, lines and wrinkles.
What is the procedure?
We will apply topical anaesthesia 15 mins before the procedure. The procedure should take around half an hour, after which we will apply a healing serum followed by a protective cream or spray.
How long will the procedure last?
Depending on the area to be treated you can expect to be at the clinic for 1 hour.
Is it painful?
Yes there is discomfort, however we use a strong anaesthetic cream to take the edge off, and painkillers prior to the treatment.
What happens after treatment?
Your face will be red straight after. It usually remains a little red for a couple of days after treatment and we advice you regarding skin care during this period. No make up should be applied for 2-3 days and we also send you home with a supply of antibiotics and/or antiviral tablets, and home care products. You will be able to go back to work by Monday if the procedure is done on a Friday in most instances.
When will I see results?
Within a week you will start to see results and you will notice improvements in your skin for 6-9 months after the initial procedure.
Do I need to repeat this treatment?
This will be based on your personal preferences and the reason you came in. For example, for acne scarring, we generally recommend a repeat procedure at 3 months but for general rejuvenation, once a year or 6 monthly should suffice . Some like to come back for yearly maintenance for enhanced collagen regeneration and long term benefits.
What are the long-term benefits and results?
Collagen regeneration and noticeable improvements in skin texture, plumpness, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.
Additional information We prefer radio frequency to light-based treatments like IPL and laser due to the much lower risk of complications post sun exposure.
