Both RF Microneedling (Morpheus8) and regular microneedling have proven to be effective treatments for improving the appearance of the skin. However, they work in slightly different ways and both offer their own unique benefits.
Regular microneedling involves using a device with tiny needles to create micro-tears in the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, leading to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and minimized scars. Regular microneedling is generally safe for all skin types and has minimal downtime.
RF micro needling combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. RF energy is delivered through the needles, creating controlled heat in the deeper layers of the skin. This heat stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin, resulting in improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and tightened pores. RF microneedling can also be effective for treating acne scars and stretch marks. The combination of microneedling and RF energy has been proven to provide enhanced results when compared to regular microneedling.
Overall, the benefits of RF microneedling over regular microneedling include:
1. Enhanced collagen production: The addition of RF energy works to stimulate collagen production more effectively than just regular microneedling, leading to improved skin tightening and rejuvenation.
2. Customizable: RF microneedling can be customized by both needle depth and RF energy intensity to meet the specific, unique needs of each patient.
3. Versatility: RF microneedling can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, legs, and body, to address a wide range of skin concerns.
4. Acne Scars: RF microneedling is a lot more successful at addressing acne scars than regular microneedling. The added RF energy paired with the needle punctures works to break up the scar matter to maximize results.
