shutterstock_445378408Quick, convenient and comfortable treatment coupled with great results and no downtime has naturally made the Legend RF radiofrequency skin tightening with microneedling procedure a very popular anti-aging treatment here at Innovations Medical. Legend RF can quickly improve the quality of your skin and leave you looking fabulous. But is radiofrequency skin tightening with microneedling safe?

What Is Radiofrequency?

Radiofrequency is a form of energy. You are likely exposed to radiofrequency energy every day; it is what allows you to listen to the radio, watch TV, use wireless internet and even use your microwave. While it may sound strange to think about using that same energy to tighten your skin, the level of radiofrequency energy used in radiofrequency skin tightening with microneedling is about 450 kilohertz, the slower side of the radiofrequency range. (Science lesson: The radiofrequency wavelength used for skin tightening is almost 100 million times slower than light you can see.)

How Does Radiofrequency Tighten Skin?

Radiofrequency energy, like any other form of energy, can produce heat. This heat penetrates deep into your skin and triggers the body to produce more collagen and elastin, which in turn tightens the skin and makes it stronger, thicker and younger looking.

Why Choose Radiofrequency Skin Tightening with Microneedling?

Unlike other skin-tightening treatments, radiofrequency waves can reach deeper into the tissues, which means more skin-tightening benefits and better results for you. Radiofrequency skin tightening is an ideal treatment for wrinkles, lines and sagging skin, and can be used for all skin types, unlike some laser skin-rejuvenation treatments.

The microneedling portion of the procedure can help repair surface damage such as acne scarring, fine lines and sun damage. When combined with a PRP facial, you will see even better results!

Are Radiofrequency Skin-Tightening Treatments Safe?

There have been no studies that say there is a negative impact to being exposed to radiofrequency energy during the Legend RF with microneedling procedure. Radiofrequency skin-tightening treatments are very safe, especially when performed by an experienced and skilled provider such as Dr. Johnson and the Innovations Medical staff.
