Micro needling radio frequency is a revolutionary treatment which is used in variety of indications, treating acne scar, dull skin, stretch marks and pigmentation. This treatment involves use of radiofrequency through sterile gold plated needles. The micro needles of MNRF create micro punctures without damaging the epidermis and thus promoting revascularization, connective tissue & collagen formation. Also known as the collagen induction therapy, this treatment also work as wonders in treating ageing effects of the skin.How is the treatment carried out?
Micro needling RF is just a 20 minutes procedure with a down time of 1- 2 days. It is one of the most reliable treatment for acne scar removal in the category of collagen induction treatment. After applying numbing cream for around 45 minutes, the hand piece holding these set of needles are pierced through the superficial layers of skin and these needles break the fibrous bands leading to collagen remodelling.Which age group is usually affected?
People who had acne at any point of time, have chances of developing scars. Especially seen in long standing cases of acne vulgaris, there is more tendency of acne scar formation. So teenagers can be treated with this treatment and patients above 18 years of of age , male or female are ideal for this treatment.
The treatment is absolutely safe and does not have much downtime.
It can have a short downtime of around two to three days, where you can have small minor scabs for a couple of days and these scabs fall off by their own.
There is slight risk of hyperpigmentation in case a patient doesn't follow proper sun protection instructions. In case of hyperpigmentation It is temporary and subsides in a couple of weeks.
