Microneedling continues to rise in popularity as one of the most effective and desirable treatments to dramatically improve the skin’s appearance and health without pain, discomfort, or downtime. This minimally invasive treatment is often recommended by our team at Primary Aesthetic Skin Care when patients are interested in affordable solutions for skin enhancement. Our practice in Bedford, NY is pleased to offer two types of microneedling treatments including traditional microneedling and radiofrequency microneedling. But what’s the difference?
RF microneedling vs. traditional microneedling
If you are confused about the different types of microneedling, our team at Primary Aesthetic Skin Care can help in demystifying these treatments and helping you choose the one best for your unique skincare needs.
- Traditional microneedling – with traditional microneedling, a specialized device that has very small needles is run along the skin’s surface. The needles create micro injuries to the skin through microscopic punctures which stimulates the skin’s natural healing process. The skin produces collagen, elastin, and growth factors to thicken the skin, therefore reducing the appearance of stretch marks, sun damage, acne scarring, and fine lines and wrinkles.
- RF microneedling – in addition to puncturing the skin with microscopic needles as traditional microneedling does, RF microneedling adds the benefit of penetrating the skin with radiofrequency energy. Adding RF to traditional microneedling provides deeper penetration to improve the results seen, while also tightening the skin and significantly reducing the signs of aging. RF microneedling goes deeper into the skin for more dramatic results.
Which one is right for me?
During a consultation appointment with our providers, patients can discuss the specific skin concerns they have that they want to treat. With the use of microneedling services, patients can enjoy a dramatic transformation regardless of the type they choose. A specific recommendation can be made after a thorough evaluation and consultation with Elena Ginsberg and her staff.
