RF microneedling, also known as fractional radiofrequency, is a great option for
combining skin plumping and tightening.
It works in two main ways – the skin needling modality is similar to that of our conventional medical grade skin needling (hyperlink to that service here) while the RF works beneath the surface of the skin, to heat and stimulate collagen and elastin production from beneath – this is why it can work well to improve acne scars, stretch marks, large pores and early skin sagging due to ageing.
At Skin Essentials, we use the Vivace RF microneedling device which has 36 gold plated needles (conventional skin needling needles use 12-14) in combination with RF to a depth of as much as 3.5mm AND combines LED light for either skin rejuvenation (red) or acne specific treatment (blue).
Used with numbing beforehand, RF microneedling is a comfortable treatment that takes around 30-45 minutes depending on the area(s) being treated.
As with all skin therapies, we recommend 3-6 monthly sessions initially for results, which may be visible as early as two weeks and which will continue for 3-6 months afterwards as collagen induction continues in the deeper layers. Thereafter, you may wish to use it as part of your maintenance regimen 1-2 times/ year.

As the busy year begins to wind down, it seems the perfect time to lie back, take some time off no matter […]

They usually come in frightened of having lips or anything, that looks too obviously fake. They come in armed with pictures on Instagram of what they do NOT want to look like- big pouts, […]
