RF Microneedling & Pixel Laser Treatment in Bakersfield and Orange County
RF (radiofrequency) microneedling is a unique treatment technique that corrects a number of problem areas on the face and body. Crow’s feet, acne scars, smile and laugh lines, sun damage, stretch marks, crepey skin, and more can all be significantly improved with this highly efficient and effective treatment. For those looking to restore a smoother, firmer, more youthful glow without undergoing surgery, RF microneedling may be just the treatment option for you.
What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling is a treatment that uses radiofrequency to improve the appearance of the skin. Designed to combat the signs of aging, this procedure (though it is hardly a procedure) is minimally invasive and specifically targets the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and sagging of the skin. Adding radiofrequency to the microneedling process works to further stimulate the natural collagen of the body, making way for firmer, more youthful skin.
In an RF microneedling treatment, the radiofrequency energy is delivered by way of small needles. The depth of the microneedle can be adjusted according to the area being treated. The needling treatment projects heat deep into the skin’s underlying layers to stimulate collagen while aiding in the production of elastin. The regeneration of these cells results in tighter, firmer, and overall healthier-looking skin.
How Many RF Microneedling Treatments are Needed?
After only one treatment, most clients already recognize a difference in the treated area, as the skin appears much smoother and softer. However, we recommend 2-3 treatments, with each treatment spaced an average of 5 weeks apart. Approximately three months following the third treatment, you should achieve optimal results.
How Long Does RF Microneedling Take to Heal?
Because RF microneedling is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure, it doesn’t take long at all to heal. The day of (and potentially the day after) your treatment, your skin will be red and possibly a bit swollen in the targeted areas. We recommend having your treatment performed when you will have a couple days to rest and allow the redness and swelling to subside. By the third day following your RF microneedling treatment, you should be almost entirely healed and makeup can be used to cover any remaining redness.
How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?
As with most procedures and treatments, the cost of RF microneedling depends on a variety of factors. The main factor is what your individual needs require. This treatment can target skin on both the face and body. Larger surface areas will obviously be more expensive than smaller, less intricate areas.
The price is also affected by factors such as location and experience of your plastic surgeon. In larger cities, like Bakersfield and Orange County, where the cost of living is likely higher, you can expect to pay more than you would in a smaller, more rural area. The same goes with the experience of your surgeon. For any type of treatment or procedure, you’re going to want someone with the proper qualifications and experience to perform it. This may cost more than if you were to go to someone who is inexperienced or unqualified, but it ensures that you achieve the most effective and safe results.
On average, the price of a RF microneedling session falls somewhere around $800 to $1,200 per session, but again it depends entirely on your individual circumstances. Call your plastic surgeon to get the best estimate on how much your RF microneedling treatment may cost you.
How Long Do the Results of RF Microneedling Last?
The results from your RF microneedling session will develop over the next few months following your treatments. This is due to the time it takes for the skin to react to the effects of the radiofrequency and produce new collagen. The renewed and rejuvenated appearance of your skin often lasts for at least six months, but with ongoing treatments, you can increase the longevity of the results.
After thoroughly evaluating the condition of your skin, your doctor can make a determination for how many treatments you will likely need and how often you will need them to maintain your desired results.
