With RF microneedling, high intensity radio frequency energy is delivered to the skin, warming the deep tissues of the face. This heating effect triggers the body’s natural ability to regrow collagen, a protein responsible for skin suppleness, hydration and radiance. With increased collagen levels, your complexion will appear more youthful and attractive. Dr. Leong is pleased to offer the RF microneedling procedure to those Morgantown WV patients interested in cutting edge anti-aging treatments that are minimally invasive with no downtime.

What is RF microneedling?

RF microneedling is among the newest cutting edge treatments for dull, blemished skin. The procedure consists of using a specially designed handpiece with ultra fine needles to gently puncture the skin. These micro wounds help to stimulate a collagen-producing response, improving your skin’s tone and texture. RF microneedling can be instrumental in treating acne scarring, as well as a host of other issues such as enlarged pores, stretch marks and wrinkles.

Who makes an ideal candidate?

RF microneedling is a non-surgical procedure, so nearly anyone struggling with facial blemishes is a good candidate, regardless of their age. Morgantown WV clients who are unhappy with acne scars, chicken pox scars, stretch marks, skin laxity, wrinkles and fine lines, or just an overall dull skin tone will be delighted with their rejuvenation results. Dr. Leong merely asks that patients be healthy both physically and mentally, and that they are realistic in what they hope to accomplish with RF microneedling.

Is there any downtime or recovery for RF microneedling?

Treatment typically takes one hour to complete, after which you will be able to go about your day. Your skin may be red and tender for a few days following your session, but this is usually less than you would see with a laser procedure. You can apply makeup within 24 hours of your appointment to help conceal any lingering discoloration.
