RF Microneedling in Melbourne

Revitalize your skin with RF Microneedling in the top aesthetic clinic in Melbourne, Appearance Clinic Australia. Secret RF restores youthful radiance and fullness to your skin. It is one of the most technologically advanced forms of skin rejuvenation therapy available. It combines radio frequency and micro needles to deliver the energy very precisely into the deeper layers of the skin, creating heat and activating process called fractionated denaturing.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a skin treatment that combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling techniques. This procedure involves the use of tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, which stimulate the body's natural healing process. At the same time, radiofrequency energy is delivered into the deeper layers of the skin. This combination enhances collagen production and promotes skin rejuvenation, making it an effective method for improving skin texture, reducing acne scarring, and addressing other skin concerns.

How RF Microneedling Works

During an RF microneedling treatment, a device with fine needles creates controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. These micro-injuries trigger the skin's natural healing process, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy is delivered through the needles into the deeper layers of the skin, creating thermal zones. This heat further stimulates collagen production and enhances the overall results of the treatment. The procedure targets specific treatment areas and is suitable for various skin concerns, including skin tightening, reducing stretch marks, and improving skin texture. It is a popular choice due to its minimal downtime and effectiveness on different skin types, including darker skin tones.
