Science-Backed Treatment for Skin Tightening in Tulsa, OK
You may have noticed that "microneedling" is becoming a popular term in the skincare industry. Chances are, you've seen an advertisement or two claiming that microneedling can help improve your skin's appearance. But what is microneedling, and does it really work? Let's take a closer look.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This triggers the skin's natural healing response, which promotes the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are two important proteins that help keep the skin firm, smooth, and elastic. As we age, our bodies produce less and less of these proteins, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Microneedling can help reverse this process by stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin.
How does it work?
Lutronic Genius® is a cutting-edge version of this popular treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to further boost collagen production. Radiofrequency energy is a type of electromagnetic energy that heats the deeper layers of skin without damaging the surface of the skin. This heating action causes the collagen fibers to contract and tighten, resulting in immediate skin tightening as well as long-term collagen production.
Lutronic Genius® microneedling is FDA-cleared for the treatment of wrinkles and can be used on all skin types. The procedure itself is quick and easy, taking only 30-45 minutes from start to finish. There is no downtime associated with this treatment; you can return to your normal activities immediately after your session.
Results from Lutronic Genius® RF microneedling typically become visible within 2-3 weeks after treatment and continue to improve for up to 6 months as new collagen is produced. Most patients require 3-5 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
Genius® uses very tiny needles that are sterile and insulated to deliver RF energy to precise locations and depths in the skin while reducing damage to the surface of the skin. This stimulates both collagen and elastin to tighten skin and smooth imperfections for an effect that can be a good option for patients who are seeking an anti-aging procedure with minimal downtime.
How RF (radio frequency) Energy Helps Tighten Skin
The aging process is a natural part of life and can come with some unwelcome side effects, such as wrinkles or sagging skin. Thankfully, radio frequency (RF) energy has shown promise in helping to reduce or even reverse these aging effects. In recent years, radio frequency treatments have been used by skincare experts to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. Using radio frequencies to deliver safe energies deep into the skin can also provide a refreshing feeling along with enhanced facial contours. All this without resorting to invasive cosmetic surgeries makes radio frequency energy an attractive option for those looking to maintain a more youthful look.
