Introduction to
RF Microneedling

Skin rejuvenation can come with many promises these days, but realistically, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll find the answer in a jar or tube. Sure, while serums and creams do help hydrate and improve your skin, most patients are looking for long-term, effective, yet still non-surgical options. If you’re searching for a rejuvenating, head-turning skin procedure in the Atlanta area, look no further than RF Microneedling at Skin Care at 5th Ave. in Peachtree City.

What is RF Microneedling?

Microneedling goes by another name – Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) – and when combined with the power of radiofrequency (RF), can do so much to improve your skin! This treatment stimulates collagen production and improves the overall health of your skin by using fine needles that create microscopic wounds in the skin. This treatment encourages the production of fresh new collagen, resulting in a more youthful, radiant complexion.

At Skin Care at 5th Ave., we use SYLFIRM X – an innovative rejuvenation device that is the world’s first and only FDA-Approved dual-wave RF microneedling system, making it unique in the field of skin rejuvenation. SYLFIRM X combines the proven technology of microneedling with radiofrequency energy with pulsed wave technology. Multiple microelectrodes in the SYLFIRM X device work together to create an electromagnetic field, which gently penetrates the deeper skin layers without breaking or damaging the outer tissues.

SYLFIRM X’s Pulsed Wave Mode creates selective coagulation to aid recovery of hyperactive melanogenesis, which gives you pigmentations where patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin. By delivering the RF energy into targeted tissue, we can achieve precise thermal coagulation by using evenly-leveled electrodes to penetrate the skin and accurately target depth and effectively induce optimal results.

SYLFIRM X can be used to treat the following skin conditions:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Melasma
  • PIH (Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation)
  • Redness
  • Rosacea
  • Wrinkles
  • And so much more!

What to Expect on the Day of RF Microneedling

On the day of your RF Microneedling, we will make you comfortable in one of our reclining treatment chairs. After applying a topical numbing cream, the aesthetician will use the handheld RF Microneedling device and run it across your skin. The device will make micro-punctures while simultaneously emitting the RF waves to the deeper layers of your dermis.

The Sylfirm X experience is different for each person, based on the depth and area treated. Most patients describe a slight tingling sensation and some light pressure.

Treatments can last between 20 and 45 minutes but will vary depending on your goals and how big the targeted area is.

RF Microneedling Recovery

Your recovery period after Sylfirm X is relatively short. Expect some minor swelling and redness that will feel similar to a sunburn. This will last for 1-3 days. You may also have micro-lesions where the needles were applied. These will also fade and disappear in several days.

Patients are generally able to return to work and their usual activities by the day after their treatment. While your skin is healing, use sunscreen daily to protect your skin and stay out of the sun.

RF Microneedling FAQ’s

Is RF Microneedling painful?

Due to the technological advances of SYLFIRM X, the pain and discomfort normally associated with Microneedling and Radio Frequency treatments are so minor, most patients can tolerate treatments with little or no numbing. However, we are sticklers for patient comfort and to be proactively sensitive to our patient’s needs, we apply topical numbing cream before your SYLFIRM X RF Microneedling session.

Patients describe feeling a slight warming sensation as the RF energy enters the dermis, but once again they do not find it to be painful.

How many appointments will I need?

Most patients require three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve an optimal outcome. You will see some improvements right away, but over the course of your treatments, you will see greater and greater results as collagen regeneration increases over several weeks and months.

How long until I see results?

After about two weeks, you will see smaller pores, fewer fine lines, and reduced under-eye circles. It will take about a month to see a reduction in acne scars and other more significant skin blemishes and concerns, such as melasma.

Can I combine RF Microneedling with other procedures?

Of course! Some of the more commonly combined treatments include Chemical Peels, IPL Photofacial, or even BOTOX for a renewed and more youthful appearance. If you are interested in fixing or enhancing any part of your face or body, please discuss it with our team during your RF Microneedling consultation.

What are the risks associated with RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling is an overall safe treatment, however, it can have its potential risks and side effects, including:
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Peeling
