Radio Frequency Microneedling does it really Stimulate Collagen?

Wow there is no doubt that Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling can give you great results with minimal downtime especially compared to other devices. However to fully understand how RF Microneedling works, it is important to understand collagen’s role in the skin.

What Is Collagen?

We hear the word collagen all the time. Patients ask ‘“What is collagen?”, they know that it is something good, something they should have and is reducing, but they don’t fully understand what it is.

Collagen and elastin are the main components of connective tissue in our skin. This tissue is the glue that holds the skin together, a microscopic network of fibres woven together like a thread in a fabric. Its main function is to help maintain resistance, skin density and structural integrity in the skin.

Fibroblasts live in the papillary layer of the skin and are responsible for the regeneration of all connective tissue (including collagen and elastin) in the dermis. They are involved in normal skin growth, wound repair and healing. When stimulated by a wound-healing process or an inflammatory response, these very important skin cells undergo division, working hard to repair and support collagen and elastin production.

RF Microneedling Stimulates this Collagen Production

Focus Dual RF Microneedling uses the finest needles to create microscopic wounds in the skin this stimulates the fibroblasts to influence collagen production. Our skin gets lazy over time so, if stimulated, it starts working much harder to repair itself. By creating micro-wounds in the skin and using an enhanced radio frequency, RF Microneedling inflicts controlled injuries that support collagen regeneration and trigger new supplies of elastin.

Focus Dual RF Microneedling significantly improves:

  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin tightening
  • Open pores
  • The appearance of acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Irregular skin tone and texture

The difference between Microneedling and Microneedling with Radio Frequency is that heat injury is significantly better for collagen production. With Focus Dual we can perform a very safe and precise treatment.
