Before we go any further, let me just say: When we are talking about the latest treatments, I’ll try anything and everything—especially if the alleged benefits naturally aid one of my skin concerns and the many concerns of my clients. So, after hearing countless praise for Focus Dual radiofrequency microneedling, I had to get the low-down for myself. After trialling the device, I have decided to make Focus Dual the newest addition to our clinic. Focus Dual is a revolution in non-surgical skin rejuvenation and non-surgical skin tightening procedures. In this blog, I will provide you with the information on what to expect when choosing to undergo this innovative treatment.
What is radiofrequency microneedling?
Microneedle radiofrequency otherwise known as microneedle rf, radiofrequency microneedling or rf microneedling produces effective results for our clients, with virtually no downtime. Using a combination of radiofrequency, alongside an array of super-fine sterilised microneedles; this treatment works to lift, firm, and tighten skin on the face, neck, and body. It works by stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen to provide immediate results that continue to improve over time. If you are looking to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, crepey skin, pore size, acne scars, or stretch marks and improve the overall appearance of your skin- then this treatment is for you.
This treatment is also suitable for: skin tightening including neck tightening, face tightening, pore tightening, and more…
How does radiofrequency microneedling work?
Focus Dual rf microneedling combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the power of radiofrequency energy. Our medical grade device uses ultrafine needles to penetrate the skin and deliver radiofrequency (heat) energy to deeper layers of the skin.
As the needles are released into the skin, radiofrequency energy is also distributed deep into the dermis skin layer. Each micro “injury” creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wound. As skin rejuvenation treatments are targeted at variable depths below the skin surface, healthy skin is left undamaged causing minimal discomfort and less downtime when compared to invasive procedures.
The addition of radiofrequency technology alongside microneedles creates heat zones, that generate the direct thermal heating of the dermis. This heat in the dermis skin layer, also results in new collagen production and subsequent dermal thickening up to 12 weeks post treatment. This treatment tightens the skin from the inside out. This treatment is the gift that keeps on giving!
What happens during a radiofrequency microneedling treatment?
For facial rejuvenation, a typical Focus Dual treatment lasts between 30 minutes and an hour. To begin the treatment, I will first cleanse the skin, removing any dirt or makeup from the skins surface. Next, I will begin using the Focus Dual handpiece that contains super-fine needles. When the handpiece is stamped onto the skin, you will feel a light pressure as the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin, to trigger collagen induction. Most patients describe that the sensation feels warm and slightly pinchy.
There is virtually no downtime required after receiving Focus Dual RF Microneedling. Once the treatment is finished, your skin may be slightly pink with some swelling. This will resolve quickly. Makeup can be applied after 24 hours post treatment. You will be asked to avoid, generating too much heat in the treated area post treatment e.g., avoid long showers and baths which could trigger flushing of the skin. This is to keep skin vessels closed and to improve the efficacy of the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on your skin concern, we usually recommend a course of 3 treatments, during your consultation we will customise a treatment plan to your needs to ensure optimal results.
Am I a good candidate for Focus Dual radiofrequency microneedling?
Ideal candidates for Focus Dual RF Microneedling may have mild-moderate signs of ageing including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, sagging skin, uneven skin texture, uneven skin tone and more. Unlike many other treatments, this medical grade treatment is effective in improving the appearance of skin issues on the face, neck, and body. This treatment is also effective on stretch marks as. Focus Dual radiofrequency microneedling provides impressive results for people of all ages and ALL skin types and tones, including tanned skins. That is why we are so excited to share this revolutionary technology with you, our clients.
When will I see results?
Immediately after treatment, your skin will be sensitive and slightly red, so it’s essential to wear sunscreen, especially during this time. Post-treatment I will apply Lynton Light Protect, an SPF 50 with anti-bacterial healing properties. Within a day or two, you will begin to see a more radiant, even complexion. Your skin will continue to improve up to 12 weeks post treatment, as the natural production of collagen and elastin is triggered.
