The RF micro needling or skin needling procedure is a skin resurfacing non-abrasive and non-surgical procedure that is used for facial rejuvenation to achieve more radiant and fairer skin. It is one of the most popular and safest skin treatments today that attempts to effectively reduce the signs of aging skin.
How is Micro Needling Done?
The treatment is administered with the help of an electrical medical device that uses fine needles designed to help in penetrating the skin at extreme speeds. The treatment aims to reduce the size of pores while building elasticity into the skin. Micro needling assists in breaking down old scar tissue and stimulating skin cells that help in forming new tissue layers underneath the skin. Micro needling skin resurfacing also helps in forming new capillaries and collagen fibers and strives to improve blood supply in the skin. The needles puncture the skin and form micro-wounds aimed to improve skin firmness and texture.
