Loss of collagen in the skin is one of the main aging factors. Collagen is vital for the skin’s structure and elasticity. When there is less, the skin becomes thinner and prone to sagging, lines and wrinkles. Collagen also repairs the skin, helping minimize scars and other damage. One of the ways to fight aging skin is inducing collagen production. At Uptown Body Contouring in NYC, we offer radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to increase collagen and improve the skin’s appearance.
Both radiofrequency energy treatments and microneedling are offered as cosmetic skin treatments. RF treatments are used for skin tightening by focusing the thermal energy into the deeper layer of skin. This can increase collagen to firm and tighten the skin. Microneedling also increases collagen by creating mini injuries to the skin – the body produces more collagen to repair the injuries. RF microneedling combines both treatments to double the collagen production for amazing results.
Skin Tightening and Anti-Aging Treatment
RF microneedling is one of the most innovative options to improve skin quality. The treatments are non-invasive and can be completed in less than an hour. A hand-held device is used to deliver the treatment to the desired areas. RF microneedling can be used on the face, neck and chest to combat aging or other skin concerns. Some of the issues that can be diminished with collagen induction with RF microneedling include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Thin or crepey skin
- Age or brown spots
- Acne and other scars
- Hyperpigmentation and skin discolorations
The treatments are not painful, and no downtime is needed after your procedure. Most patients benefit from a series of treatments spaced a few weeks apart. The results of increased collagen are not immediate, but patients begin seeing improvement to their skin over several weeks and months. The results can last for years, especially with occasional treatments every year.
If you have aging skin or scarring, RF microneedling may be right for you. To learn more about collagen induction treatments, contact us at Uptown Body Contouring. We can schedule a consultation or treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.
