Dr. Ryan Krch N.M.D. of Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE in Phoenix, AZ, is able to provide amazing results for his patients with a unique treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF microneedling has been used by the best aesthetic doctors and practitioners for years due to its remarkable skin-tightening outcomes. Utilizing the Venus Versa platform, Dr. Ryan performs nanofractional ablation to introduce heat deep within the facial tissue to promote the body's natural production of collagen and create firmer, smoother skin. This combination of microneedling with radiofrequency heat can provide patients with their best individual results. Get in touch with Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE to set up a consultation and discover how RF microneedling can bring out your best complexion.
Microneedling Ideal Candidates
Venus Versa RF microneedling is designed for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. This treatment, unlike most laser procedures, is safe for darker skin tones. Also, it requires little to zero downtime. The unique combination of nanofractional ablation with radiofrequency heat can greatly help to address many cosmetic flaws, including:
- Sun damage, scaly patches, or rough texture
- Acne scars and other forms of scarring or discoloration
- Lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Redness and broken blood vessels
- General dulling and other early signs of aging
RF Microneedling Procedure Technique
Most patients feel much more comfortable about the idea of RF microneedling once they fully understand it. Venus Versa RF microneedling is done with tiny sterile needles that are attached to a handheld instrument. Dr. Ryan will roll this instrument very gently over the skin, creating micro-punctures deep into the skin. These tiny injuries to the tissues stimulate the production of your body's collagen (this technique is sometimes referred to as collagen-induction treatment). Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy is introduced into your tissue via these sterile micro-needles. The RF energy warms at deep levels, which provides continuing and cumulative results. As the punctured skin starts healing, new skin grows, and this new skin looks and feels more refreshed and youthful. The innovative combination of RF microneedling with radiofrequency energy, such as Venus Versa RF, allows Dr. Ryan to provide gorgeous outcomes for his Phoenix, AZ patients.
Microneedling - What to Expect
Depending on the area you are having treated, your session at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE could take 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or serum will be applied to your skin before your RF microneedling treatment. Dr. Ryan will gently roll the instrument on your skin in the areas being treated, and this will be continued until your goal complexion is reached. After your treatment, you will experience tiny scabs forming at your puncture sites within 24 – 72 hours. As your new skin heals, these will comfortably and naturally vanish. You should begin to see results approximately one month after your procedure.
Venus Versa RF's microneedles deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy to the deep layers of the skin. This treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, and it has almost zero downtime. To achieve the best results, Dr. Ryan suggests at least 3 – 4 RF treatments. You will start to be able to see results after your second session, but your final outcome won't become visible for about three months after your last session.
How much does it cost?
The pricing of RF microneedling is determined based on the complexion issues you have treated, how large or small your treatment areas are, and how many sessions you will need. Dr. Ryan will talk you through all of your treatment options and steps to come to your individual cost.
Will I need multiple treatments?
Typically, our Phoenix, AZ patients are recommended to have 3 – 4 treatments, which should be scheduled about a month apart. Every skin type, complexion issue, and ultimate goal requires a personalized treatment plan. For example, Dr. Ryan may determine that you only need 2 sessions, or he may suggest 4 – 6. He will make his recommendation after carefully examining your desired treatment areas.
Is RF microneedling right for me?
The RF microneedling skin rejuvenation treatment offers fantastic results and much less downtime compared to, for example, laser resurfacing. It is safe for all skin tones and can be used on both the face and body. The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency heat provides visible improvements to texture irregularities, fine lines, scars, and blemishes. The added bonus of its collagen inducing properties also enhances your skin's appearance through tightening and firming.
Does the procedure hurt?
Most patients report having very little or no discomfort during RF microneedling treatments. Before each session, Dr. Ryan applies a topical numbing agent to the skin, which significantly helps to reduce any sensation. However, some patients do feel a mild but tolerable stinging during the treatment.
Is every treatment different?
Yes. Because each patient's needs, desires, and skin types are different, each treatment is always individualized. Dr. Ryan will create your personal treatment plan to address your specific concerns, as well as how many treatments you will need to see the results you want. Dr. Ryan may also suggest that you combine RF microneedling with a injectable filler or relaxer to enhance your ultimate outcome.
