Collagen Production for Skin using Radio Frequency and micro needling technology

Microneedling is one of the latest minimally invasive procedure combining radio frequency technology, microneedling, and fractional technology to treat a variety of skin issue. During the procedure, the tiny needles with RF penetrate the skin and heat the tissue to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Our in office procedure in minimally  invasive and can penetrate deeper than other microneedling devices. It is also the only treatment that can mold fat under the skin to obtain optimal results. Legend Pro is a patented device that simultaneously uses radiofrequency and microneedling. As the microneedles penetrate the dermis, the gentle heat of radiofrequency sinks into the sub-dermal layers, meaning that this treatment works both inside and outside the body. Legend Pro is a double-whammy treatment that both incites natural healing and new cell turn over, as well as stimulates the work of skin-supporting proteins like collagen and elastin. This treatment is minimally invasive, takes about 30 minutes to complete, and requires very little downtime.


5 Major Potential Benefits of Microneedling

What does micro needling do to your face? There a number of possible benefits of this treatment including:

Boosts Collagen

As I just mentioned, collagen production in the skin is crucial to our skin’s appearance. Less collagen as we age means more wrinkles, fine lines and skin sagging. So more collagen means a more youthful complexion, and research shows that microneedling can actually boost collagen production!

Looking for a natural way to improve acne scars? A 2009 study looked at the effects of multiple microneedling treatments on 37 patients with atrophic facial scarring. Atrophic scars are sunken in the skin and form when the skin is unable to regenerate tissue. Examples of atrophic scars include those resulting from acne and chicken pox. After treatment, the patients’ scars were evaluated and graded clinically at the start and two months after the conclusion of the treatment protocol.

What were the study results? Out of the 37 initial patients, 36 completed the treatment schedule and out of these 36 patients, 34 obtained a decrease in the severity of their scarring by one or two grades. Over 80 percent of the patients evaluated their microneedling treatment as “excellent” on a 10-point scale. There were no significant adverse effects recorded for any of the patients. (4)

If you look up microneedling before and after pictures, they can be quite impressive! Post-treatment, people often report increased radiance of their skin.

After a microneedling facial, one woman says,

I also was surprised by how soft my skin felt and how the size of my pores shrank significantly. I load up on hydrating oils every morning because of my inherently dry skin, and I’m addicted to how soft it leaves my skin feeling. But I literally woke up with cushion-like skin without all of the extra work. I decided to go makeup-free (and still am) until my skin completely heals

An in vitro study published in the European Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences looked at the effects of a microneedle device (Dermaroller®) with various needle lengths including 150, 500 and 1500 micrometers. The researchers studied the effects of treatment on the morphology of the skin surface, transepidermal water loss as well as the penetration and permeation of water-attracting topical compounds like those used in skincare products.

After treatment with the Dermaroller®, the researchers observed a decrease in water loss which they believe was most likely caused by a reduction in a pore size. They also noted that skin perforation via the microneedling tool enhanced the ability of water-attracting compounds to infiltrate the skin.

Overall, it appears that microneedling definitely enhances the skin’s ability to absorb and hence benefit from topical products. It may also help to decrease pore size and skin cell water loss. (6)

A study published in 2013 divided 100 test subjects into two groups; one set was treated with a conventional hair loss lotion twice daily and the other received the lotion twice daily plus a weekly microneedling treatment of the scalp. After 12 weeks, 82 percent of the microneedling group reported a 50 percent improvement in hair growth versus only a 4.5 percent improvement in the lotion-only group.

Q and A about Microneedling and Benefits

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic technique that has been popular for almost a decade. Microneedling involves a device that is tipped with tiny needles, which penetrate the top layer of skin to create micro-injuries. The presence of these micro-injuries prompts the body to kick-start its natural healing abilities, which in turn restores the overall appearance of the skin.

Our certified Aestheticians or Physicians will perform the procedure. Micro-needling with RF takes approximately 30 minutes to complete depending on the area. Growth factors may be applied to the skin to penetrate through the micro-perforations and assist with wound healing, followed by a calming serum.

Why Radio Frequency combined with Microneedling works magically?

The combination of these two techniques is powerful. Why? To put it simply, both radiofrequency and microneedling stimulate the body’s natural regenerative properties, which ultimately helps rejuvenate the look and feel of skin. Put together, the stimulation of new cell turn over, collagen, and blood flow to the face can turn back the clock and instantly take years off your appearance.

What does Microneedling treat? 

This treatment is an ideal solution to solving many age-related skin concerns. While everyone’s skin is different, it is true that the visible signs of aging are something we all share, and something that can be a great source of stress and unhappiness. As a treatment that combines two effective techniques, this treatment can correct issues such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Skin laxity

How fast can you see results?

There are several benefits of this treatment that are attractive to prospective patients, particularly how effective the treatment is. Some other key benefits include the safety of the treatment, which can be used on every skin tone without risk of pigmentation damage, and the fact that this treatment does not require the use of numbing cream to protect the patient from pain.
