In addition to creating tiny punctures in the skin, radiofrequency (RF) microneedling uses energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen production and skin tightening.
The wound healing response in the skin triggered by the heat from radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is known as the "healing cascade." This process involves the production of new collagen fibers, which can help to tighten and firm the skin.
Radiofrequency (RF) generates heat by producing an alternating current that passes through the tissue. The RF energy causes the molecules in the tissue to rotate rapidly, creating friction and generating heat. This heat can then be used to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin during RF microneedling treatments.
