What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is an important procedure for skin health and long-term aesthetic rejuvenation. By puncturing the skin with an instrument that consists of a small group of tiny sterilized needles, the procedure promotes the body’s own collagen and other skin-smoothing proteins to repair the treated area, essentially kicking the body’s self-repairing capacity into high gear. By controlling the site and the amount of the treatment, the physician can diminish or even erase some of the skin damage that occurs over time, including scarring, discoloration, and other blemishes.

What is Intensif RF Microneedling?

An exciting new technique in microneedling procedures, Intensif RF utilizes a similar type of needle-based treatment, but instead of a physical puncture, the needs emit radio frequency energy to stimulate the skin’s layers into producing the self-repairing proteins. The advantage of this form of microneedling is very precise and accurate tuning of the frequency to match skin pigmentation, type, and the desired effect of the treatment, allowing Dr. Abramson and his colleagues to specifically tailor the procedure to your needs.

What are Growth Factors?

Growth factors are almost like signals created by the body that help in the body’s repair and replenishment. While the cells can continue to manufacture many of the proteins needed for wound care and skin repair, these growth factor peptides unfortunately are produced in fewer and few numbers as the body ages. However, by injecting precise amounts of the appropriate growth factors at the site of the treatment, these peptides help to reactivate the dormant protein-producing regions of the body’s cells, encouraging their manufacture. By combining the useful effects of these hard-working peptide signals with the beneficial collagen and other proteins released by the microneedling procedure, the team at Abramson Facial Plastic Surgery can ensure even more effective outcomes.
