My DLK for Microneedling

          Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling in Toronto

          DLK on Avenue performs Radiofrequency Microneedling in our Toronto clinic  by using a fine needle to create small channels in the skin that triggers collagen production. By introducing radiofrequency waves, we enhance the effects of microneedling to give you optimal results.

          What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling (aka RF Microneedling)?

          RF Microneedling is a treatment that uses ultrafine needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate skin. The treatment stimulates a natural healing response and encourages collagen and elastin production, improving the appearance of skin.

          After your Radiofrequency Microneedling treatment, your skin will grow back smoother and thicker, meaning with this procedure you can target:

          • Fine lines and wrinkles

          • Stretch marks

          • Acne scars and the appearance of large pores

          • Other scars and hyperpigmentation

          • Sagging skin and cellulite

          • Hyperhidrosis

          How to Prepare for RF Microneedling

          After your consultation, your provider will ask about your medical history, any prescriptions you take, and your expectations. If you have active acne breakouts, you may need to take antibiotics. If you have a history of cold sores, you may need to take antiviral medication prior to your RF Microneedling treatment.

          Patients should keep hydrated and shave visible hair the day of the treatment. A medical-grade skincare regimen before the treatment is recommended for optimal results. 

          During Your RF Microneedling Treatment

          DLK on Avenue’s RF Microneedling Treatment combines microneedling with focused radiofrequency waves to heat the skin and trigger a natural healing response.

          Your doctor will clean your skin and apply a topic anesthetic to the treatment area 1 hour before your procedure. They will then apply the RF Microneedling device to make tiny wounds in the skin that promote collagen production while the tip releases waves of radiofrequency into the wounds to optimize results and effectiveness. Most treatments can be performed in under one hour.

          RF Microneedling Aftercare & Recovery

          Immediately after treatment your skin will feel warm and may be red. This settles quickly, usually within 24-48 hours. Treatments are well-tolerated, with minimal reported side effects, such as pinpoint bleeding, swelling, redness, or irritation. 

          The DLK RF Microneedling Treatment combines in-clinic treatments and at-home prescribed products. Instructions on how to use your post-procedure at-home products will be provided.

          Results of RF Microneedling

          RF Microneedling is effective for many skin conditions, predominantly:

          • Acne, especially in terms of improving the appearance of small acne scars

          • Dull complexion, as the treatment rejuvenates the skin and reduces the look of wrinkles. You will also experience improved skin texture and a reduction in enlarged pores

          • Hyperhidrosis, which is a condition that causes people to sweat excessively in certain areas. RF Microneedling helps by reducing the number and size of your sweat glands.

          For optimal results from RF microneedling, we recommend 3-6 treatments, approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are recommended after the initial course of treatments.

          Results may be seen within several days with gradual improvement over the course of several weeks to several months.

          Benefits of RF Microneedling

          RF Microneedling offers many benefits, including:

          • Smooth, firm skin

          • An even skin tone with decreased hyperpigmentation. 

          • Brighter, youthful-looking skin

          • Smaller pores and reduced visibility of acne scarring

          • Improved skin texture

          The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy combine to produce more effective, better-looking results for your skin.

          Side Effects of RF Microneedling

          RF Microneedling does present some side effects, including:

          • Bleeding

          • Bruising

          • Redness

          • Skin tightness

          • Itching/peeling

          RF Microneedling FAQ

          How is RF microneedling different from other types of microneedling?

          Microneedling alone delivers great results after a few treatments, but adding radiofrequency energy reduces the time it’ll take you to see results - and the results you see will be even better. With RF Microneedling, the results are produced faster and are more dramatic and long-lived.

          Is RF microneedling better than other types of microneedling?

          If you are looking for the rejuvenating, youthful results of microneedling in a quicker amount of time, RF microneedling is recommended. With RF microneedling, you can improve the tone, texture, and collagen production in your skin. 

          How long do results from RF microneedling last?

          Your RF microneedling results will typically last 3-5 months, and patients at DLK on Avenue often schedule follow-up treatments twice a year to maintain their beautiful results. Taking good care of your skin will preserve and optimize your results.

          How many RF microneedling sessions will I need?

          Most patients require 3-4 treatments before they see full desired results, but you may require more treatments if you have more moderate or severe skin concerns like deep wrinkles or extensive acne scarring.

          How far apart should RF microneedling sessions be performed?

          To be safe, you should book your RF microneedling treatments to be 4-6 weeks apart. If you have moderate to severe concerns, you will likely require up to 6 treatments.

          How often should I get RF microneedling maintenance treatments?

          If you need to continue building collagen to reduce the look of scarring and fine lines, you will want to schedule maintenance treatments that will occur every 4-6 weeks. The more consistent you are with your RF Microneedling treatments, the better and faster your results will appear.
