Will RF Microneedling Get Rid of Facial Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are largely a result of age, sun damage, and lifestyle habits. Our skin starts losing its ability to spring back into place once collagen production slows down. Many people try over-the-counter products or derma rollers for wrinkles, but these methods are not always effective or even safe for everyone.
What if we told you there was an easy way to reduce wrinkles and loose skin with very little downtime? RF (radiofrequency) microneedling at Dr. Padma's Aesthetics is the answer! This treatment in East Greenbush, NY stimulates collagen production and encourages cell turnover for smooth, younger-looking skin.
Microneedling is a technique that's been used for decades to treat all kinds of skin issues. If you're ready to find out about this anti-aging option, call board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Padma Sripada for a skin consultation. We're proud to serve patients of all needs and backgrounds.
Why am I seeing wrinkles and fine lines now?
Our skin loses elasticity as we age. Collagen and elastin production decrease as we enter our 30s or 40s. This causes our skin to become less firm and more prone to wrinkles. Sun damage, smoking, and even stress can speed up aging. Some people turn to home treatments, like derma rollers, but these products can harbor harmful bacteria and cause problems like infections and breakouts.
If you're concerned about signs of aging that can't be treated by derma rollers, Dr. Padma's Aesthetics offers RF microneedling to help you regain your youth and beauty.
How does RF microneedling work to improve skin?
Radiofrequency microneedling uses a device with very fine needles to lightly "tear" your skin, while radiofrequency energy gently heats up the underlying tissue. This is what encourages natural healing and new collagen production. RF microneedling in East Greenbush, NY has been proven to:
Increase collagen and elastin production
Reduce the appearance of loose skin
Remove age spots or other problems, like acne scars
Speed up skin cell turnover for a youthful glow
How many treatments do I need?
It's best to schedule several RF microneedling appointments if you want to make the most of your results. Dr. Padma will space the sessions at least a few weeks apart, so your skin has time to recover. In the meantime, you can expect some small pinpoint scabs 24 – 72 hours after treatment. It's very important not to pick or peel your healing skin and avoid sun exposure during this time. The scabs will fall off naturally, revealing fresh new skin underneath.
How can I enhance my results?
Dr. Padma encourages patients to maintain a regular skin care routine to get the most out of their anti-aging treatment and improve their final outcomes. Drinking water will keep your skin hydrated and plump, for example. Avoid derma rollers, smoking, sun exposure, tanning beds, and other common sources of skin damage. Our team also offers additional treatments and procedures to give your skin the support it needs to stay healthy long-term.
