FRACTIONAL MICRONEEDLING AND RADIOFREQUENCY AT DERMCARE, MISSISSAUGA
DermCare offers a variety of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments at our Mississauga office. Fractional Microneedling and Radiofrequency is one of the most popular choices among patients who want to look and feel their best with little to no downtime.
This technology combines the benefits of two tried-and-true dermatological techniques to optimize benefits with a gentle and convenient treatment. It delivers radiofrequency energy directly to deeper dermal layers where it is most beneficial.
This procedure might sound painful, but it is actually quite gentle. The device includes a multitude of ultra-fine needles that pierce the uppermost layers of skin. Unlike an injection, these needles do not reach deep tissue. Most patients report feeling nothing, or a light scratching sensation during the process.
Used alone, microneedling stimulates collagen production and natural skin rejuvenation. Used in conjunction with other techniques, microneedling enables therapeutic serums or energy to penetrate skin more easily.
Radiofrequency energy has many therapeutic effects, in both cosmetic and medical applications. It is non-ablative, meaning that it does not wound the skin. It works by heating tissue to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Radiofrequency devices are designed to deliver energy with exacting precision, to reach optimal therapeutic temperature without overheating skin.
BETTER TOGETHER – COMBINING MICRONEEDLING AND RADIOFREQUENCY
When thermal treatments are applied externally, the surface of skin must heat up before deeper layers do. However, when radiofrequency is applied via insulated microneedles, it bypasses the surface layer and begins working where it is needed the most.
The benefits of combining these technologies include:
- Minimally invasive skin rejuvenation solution
- Fast treatment time
- Little to no downtime
- Minimal risk of hyperpigmentation
- Smoother, firmer, more youthful skin
Due to its gentle nature, this procedure is safe for most people. Please call our office at (905) 625-5600 to schedule a consultation.
Get a healthy skin with Microneedling and Micropen procedures – Dr. Faisal Al-Mohammedi
Microneedling and Micropen are one of the amazing skin care procedures that we do.
How is Micropen performed?
Micropen is something which is done on the skin by injecting small, tiny needles into the skin and that improves the fine wrinkles that don't respond to Botox.
I recommend this procedure for people to have and it takes two months to maintain that healthy look of the skin.
How is Microneedling treatment performed?
We used to have the Microneedling derma roller which is a roller that has so many pins with different lengths. That is usually used for a healthy look of the skin and also to treat acne scar.
Now we have advanced equipment that has Microneedling along with radiofrequency. This is a procedure that I recommend as a routine for people to do every 3, 4 months and also for people who have acne scars.
It improves the look of the acne scars 40-50% and most people who have had the procedure are very happy with the results.
Is Microneedling treatment safe?
It is a safe and effective procedure and requires only a numbing cream before the procedure.
Now we call it lunchtime treatment as the downtime is not long and has only a little bit of redness in the face that will last for one to two hours after the treatment.
Due to its gentle nature, this procedure is safe for most people. Please call our office at (905) 625-5600 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Al-Mohammedi.
