RF (radio frequency) microneedling and fractionated laser resurfacing (AKA laser treatment) are two of the most popular treatments that are available for providing tighter, more youthful looking skin that’s free of lines and wrinkles. Both treatments can also be used to reduce the appearance of scarring.
If you’re not entirely sure which treatment is best for you, then you should find the information below extremely useful.
Laser treatment is able to target the skin on a deep level and is used to rejuvenate the skin and treat a number of common skin issues, including sun spots, acne, scarring and wrinkles. Laser treatment is also used to get rid of unwanted hair on the face and body.
Laser treatment works by penetrating the skin and heating the tissue, causing the body to produce more collagen and therefore providing better skin tone and texture to the treated area.
One of the biggest benefits of RF microneedling over laser treatment is that because the protective epidermis left intact, there is considerably less chance of scarring and infection.
RF microneedling can also be used to treat any type of skin and can typically be used to treat a greater number of skin conditions when compared to laser treatment as a result. RF microneedling is generally better tolerated by most patients too. Although a topical numbing agent is used for both microneedling and laser treatment, the majority of patients find the pain associated with microneedling to be much more tolerable.
