If you cannot stand looking at your acne scars any longer, several treatments exist that can help. Radiofrequency microneedling is one example.
How RF Microneedling Works
RF Microneedling improves skin tone and texture by restoring elasticity and collagen production and erasing acne scars. Within a few sessions, patients can reduce the visibility of acne scars to virtually nothing. This quick and uncomplicated treatment method has been a popular choice for many individuals looking to diminish the prominence of acne scars and rejuvenate their skin.
What is Different About RF Microneedling?
Compared to regular microneedling, RF microneedling’s extra benefit of radiofrequency energy has been shown to firm and tighten the skin by triggering elastin and collagen formation to an even greater degree. However, only an expert medical professional can offer RF microneedling, unlike traditional microneedling, which almost anyone can do. This is because the device uses deeper needles, which are necessary for acne scar removal, so it must take place in a medical setting.
Dr. Benjamin Stong’s medical aestheticians at The K Spa specialize in treating hyperpigmentation and aggressive acne conditions and minimizing the appearance of acne scars. During your consultation, we will assess your skin type and current skin condition to help you choose the best course of treatment.
How Effective is Microneedling for Severe Acne Scars?
A medical aesthetician can adjust the needle depth of a microneedling device to accommodate patients with varying degrees of acne scarring. The procedure can treat acne scarring of any severity and help even skin tone, resulting in younger-looking, firmer skin.
How Often Should You Schedule RF Microneedling Sessions?
Microneedling is generally safe to undergo once a month or every four to six weeks. While this is the optimal frequency for most patients across all skin types, others may find that receiving the treatment frequently achieves their desired results. The specialists at The K Spa can advise you on how often you should receive treatments to maximize the positive effects on your skin’s health and appearance.
The number of microneedling sessions needed to cure acne scars highly depends on the scars’ severity and size. Dr. Stong will suggest a tailor-made skincare routine to promote the skin’s natural rebuilding process in the time between RF microneedling sessions.
Most patients will notice an improvement after the first session, but a series of sessions are usually necessary for optimal results. This is because it can take time to delete the skin’s memory of acne scarring. Moreover, RF microneedling can be used in conjunction with other treatments or as a “finishing touch” to an individual’s tailored treatment strategy.
