At Skyn Lab, we offer 2 forms of microneedling. Radiofrequency microneedling and traditional microneedling.
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling involves heat from the device to remodel collagen and the depth of the needles creates a controlled injury to promote elastin cells to regenerate, smoothen, and tighten the elastin fibers of the skin.
Traditional microneedling is the collagen induced therapy from the micro injury to the skin but without the heating factor.
Both options offer great results and your provider will help you identify which you may benefit from.
