We adore radiofrequency microneedling! This treatment does wonders for your skin. Let us unpack what this treatment is about and discuss the benefits.

Understanding Radiofrequency Microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that addresses a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone, acne scars, and skin laxity. Microneedling involves creating tiny injuries into the skin to stimulate collagen production and skin renewal. Radiofrequency treatment generates heat energy which is delivered deep into the skin tissue. This also stimulates the production of collagen and remodels existing collagen in the skin. Combining radiofrequency with microneedling creates a powerful treatment to rejuvenate the skin.

How Does It Work?

During a radiofrequency microneedling treatment, your skin therapist will apply numbing gel to your face. A handheld device with fine needles is used to create microscopic punctures in the skin’s surface. These tiny injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity.

In addition to the mechanical aspect of microneedling, radiofrequency energy is simultaneously delivered through the needles into the deeper layers of the skin. This energy heats the tissue, further stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin from within. The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency effectively targets multiple layers of the skin, resulting in comprehensive rejuvenation and skin tightening.

Benefits of Radiofrequency Microneedling

This treatment is a popular one for many reasons, some key benefits include:

  1. Reduced Wrinkles and Fine Lines: By stimulating collagen production and improving skin elasticity, wrinkles and fine lines are diminished, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
  2. Improved Skin Texture: The controlled micro-injuries created during the treatment promote cell turnover and collagen remodeling, leading to improved skin texture and a more even complexion.
  3. Acne Scar Reduction: The treatment helps reduce the appearance of acne scars by promoting the regeneration of healthy skin cells and smoothing out uneven skin tone and texture.
  4. Skin Tightening: The radiofrequency energy delivered during the procedure stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in firmer, tighter skin, particularly in areas prone to sagging, such as the cheeks, jawline, and neck.
  5. Minimal Downtime: While some redness and swelling may occur immediately following the treatment, downtime is typically minimal compared to more invasive procedures, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy lifestyles. We advise to expect 12 hours downtime after treatment.

In Conclusion

Radiofrequency microneedling offers a safe and effective solution for addressing various skin concerns. The combination of radiofrequency and microneedling has a dual effect on the tissue resulting in powerful skin rejuvenation.

What is the Cosmelan Peel?

The Cosmelan Peel, developed by Mesoestetic, is a deep peeling system designed to target pigmentation and melasma. It is a medical grade peel: the skin will noticeably peel off the face. You are put on review so that you are constantly tracked and supported throughout the process. The whole process takes 6 – 12 months, so it is definitely for the committed!

Understanding the Cosmelan Peel

Developed by Mesoestetic, a renowned pharmaceutical company specializing in dermatology, the Cosmelan Peel is a professional depigmentation treatment designed to target and reduce skin discoloration. Unlike traditional peels, which primarily focus on exfoliation, it goes beyond surface-level concerns to address pigmentation issues at their root.

How Does the Treatment Work?

The Cosmelan Peel harnesses the power of potent ingredients, including azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, and arbutin, to inhibit the production of melanin in the skin. By suppressing melanin synthesis, the peel effectively fades existing dark spots while preventing the formation of new ones. This dual-action approach ensures comprehensive depigmentation results, leaving the skin visibly brighter and more even-toned. The peel is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, which makes it really unique.

The Treatment Process:

The peel is typically administered in two stages: the in-clinic application of the peel followed by a customized at-home skincare regimen. During the initial session, a skin expert will carefully apply the mud-like solution to the skin, ensuring even coverage. The patient will be informed to leave the mud-like solution on for a number of hours. Patients may experience a mild tingling sensation whist the solution is on the skin. The at home regime requires you to apply a small amount of peel on daily for a number of days. You are put on review during this process so that we have constant feedback on your skin and the developments.

 

The Cosmelan Peel is definitely for those who can commit to the long time frame of the process. However, the results of this treatment are truly remarkable, especially for those dealing with melasma and pigmentation which is renowned for being very difficult to treat.
