What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Winchester, VA double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen utilizes a special technique that creates excellent results for our patients with a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have existed for many years and are well known in the cosmetic industry for their skin tightening effects. This particular type of therapy utilizes heat to encourage the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. At Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa, we perform this treatment using InMode Morpheus8™ to create firmer skin for a much smoother feel and a luminous complexion.

What Can I Expect from My RF Microneedling treatment?
Microneedling is the process of rolling a handheld device carefully against the skin to puncture the skin and make micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. The applicator works by providing brief bursts of RF energy through the microneedles that cause micro-injuries to the skin. With the addition of radiofrequency heat, the skin tightening process is enhanced. As the skin heals, the top layer of skin is left feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated. The combined radiofrequency and microneedling technologies enable us to optimize the outcomes for our Winchester, VA patients. The applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by providing brief bursts of RF energy via an array of 25 sterile, golden microneedles. RF microneedling treatments will be performed in the Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa office with the use of numbing cream to help reduce any discomfort. After your treatment, you should expect tiny pinpoint scabs to become pronounced in the next 24 – 72 hours, which will naturally shed when the inherent skin has healed. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks after having an RF microneedling treatment. Optimal results generally necessitate 3 – 4 treatments scheduled 3 – 4 weeks apart.
