Unlock Your Skin's Radiant Potential
RF microneedling is an effective anti-aging and skin-tightening treatment that can naturally combat aging to improve the health and appearance of the skin. At Still Well in Staten Island, NY, we offer this treatment for patients seeking a minimally invasive, non-surgical skin tightening treatment that delivers noticeable and long-lasting results.
What Is RF Microneedling?
We perform our RF microneedling treatments using the Genius™ device by Lutronic®. This device uses innovative technology to improve the skin without requiring patients to plan around significant social downtime. As a skin revitalization treatment, it stimulates increased collagen and elastin production to promote smoother, firmer, and more even skin.
The device is equipped with real-time feedback about energy delivery, so we can make adjustments as needed and ensure the device is treating your exact concerns. The treatment is known for its precision and effectiveness and can meet the needs of patients with unique skin concerns.
What Does It Treat?
Genius™ RF microneedling can address several different skin concerns. Patients who want to achieve tighter skin to promote a more youthful and toned appearance can benefit from this treatment. We can also use the device to define the jawline, lift the eye area, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and smooth lines and wrinkles.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
Genius™ treatments are completely customizable and can meet the needs of men and women who want to improve their skin without undergoing an invasive procedure. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:
- Treatments are safe and sterile
- Insulated needles allow for precision in delivering RF energy to the skin
- The treatment results in a natural increase in collagen and elastin production
- There’s minimal to no social downtime
- Patients can resume normal activities after treatment
- Results are both immediate and gradual
What Can I Expect From a Treatment?
Once we confirm that a Genius™ RF microneedling treatment plan is right for you, we can customize a plan to help you achieve younger and healthier-looking skin. Most patients need a series of three treatments, with one month between each for best results. Treatments typically last 30 to 60 minutes based on the number and size of the area being treated.
Patients can expect some initial results after the first treatment and gradual results as the body responds with a healing reaction that will increase collagen and elastin production in the months following treatment. Visible results appear within the first three months, and the best results are most visible six months post-treatment.
Our Treatment Options
Hair Restoration With PRP/PRF/Exosomes
We offer hair restoration treatments that combine the benefits of microneedling with growth factors, including PRP, PRF, exosomes, and other topical products. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin. Both are derived from the blood with a standard blood draw.
Once prepared, the isolated growth factors are applied to different areas of the scalp alongside a microneedling treatment to promote hair health and growth by stimulating hair follicles in the treatment area. We can also apply exosomes and other products topically to deliver nutrient-rich, anti-aging ingredients, and growth factors to the scalp to encourage hair growth and promote thicker, fuller, and healthier hair.
Facials With PRP/PRF/Exosomes
We also offer microneedling facials during which we use PRP, PRF, exosomes, and other solutions to improve the skin, taking advantage of the increased absorption rate that results from the treatment. These facials can improve skin health, reverse the aging process, and improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and even hyperpigmentation. We can customize a microneedling facial using the right topical growth factors to help you reach your skincare goals.
The Vampire Facial®
At Still Well, our technicians are trained and approved to perform the popular and effective Vampire Facial®. This treatment includes multiple steps designed to promote healthier and younger-looking skin. First, we derive the platelet-rich plasma from your blood with a standard blood draw. Then, we isolate the platelets in your blood using a device called a centrifuge. This process takes minutes to complete, and then we can begin the treatment process.
As we use the microneedling device to address your primary concerns, it will create thousands of microchannels in the skin, promoting a healing response from the body that eventually results in increased collagen and elastin production. This process also increases the skin absorption rate. When we apply the platelet-rich plasma directly onto your skin, it activates stem cells, promoting younger-looking skin and encouraging cellular turnover and tissue regeneration.
The Ultimate Skin Solution
The Ultimate Skin Solution is a treatment that combines RF microneedling with a BBL Hero® and MOXI® laser treatment to perfect the skin on the face and body and reverse the aging process. During this treatment, RF microneedling techniques will improve the appearance of the skin over time by naturally stimulating collagen and elastin production.
The BBL Hero® device improves the appearance of aging skin and can reduce rosacea, acne, melasma, and sun spots. The MOXI® laser eliminates pigment from the skin, producing results within days of treatment. The treatment will enhance and maintain a youthful look long-term.
Am I a Candidate?
If you want to tighten your skin, reverse the aging process, or treat other skin imperfections, you may be a good candidate for a Genius™ RF microneedling treatment plan. We can schedule this treatment as a standalone option or in combination with other treatments for enhanced results. An initial consultation is the best way to determine if this treatment is right for you and whether combining it with other skin-perfecting treatments will meet your needs.
RF Microneedling Frequently Asked Questions
RF microneedling, also known as radiofrequency microneedling, combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy. It involves using a device that creates tiny microchannels in the skin while simultaneously delivering controlled radiofrequency energy deep into the dermal layers. This combination stimulates collagen production, tightens the skin, and improves texture and overall appearance.
RF microneedling is generally safe for most skin types and tones. The radiofrequency energy is colorblind and can be used on various skin tones, including darker skin. However, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified practitioner who can assess your specific skin condition and determine if RF microneedling is suitable for you.
RF microneedling is effective in treating a range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, and sagging or lax skin. It can also improve overall skin tone and promote a more youthful and radiant complexion.
Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is typically applied to minimize any discomfort. While individual experiences may vary, most people report feeling mild to moderate sensations during RF microneedling, such as warmth, prickling, or a slight tingling. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, and the intensity can be adjusted based on your comfort level.
The number of RF microneedling sessions required depends on your skin condition and treatment goals. Typically, a series of 3 to 4 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. Improvement in skin texture and firmness can be noticed shortly after the first session, with continued enhancement over the following weeks as collagen production increases. Long-lasting results can be seen several months after completing the recommended treatment course.
Please note that these FAQs provide general information about RF microneedling, and it’s essential to consult with a qualified practitioner to address your specific concerns and receive personalized advice based on your unique skin condition.
If you’ve never experienced an RF microneedling treatment before, or you’re familiar with the treatment and want to continue to improve your skin with maintenance or combination treatments, we can design a treatment plan that’s right for you. We will give you more details about the Genius™ device and our treatment options to determine which will best address your skin type and concerns.
