Traditional Microneedling vs. Radiofrequency Microneedling: Which is Better?

Microneedling in Boston, MA

Microneedling is the perfect medical spa treatment to minimize your enlarged pores, treat your acne scars and even out your skin texture. But, with new innovations on the market like adding radiofrequency technology into the mix, is it better to stick to the original treatment or venture to new horizons? Today, we’re going to go over the differences between traditional microneedling and microneedling with radiofrequency technology, so you can make that decision for yourself.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of several small, hair-like microneedles being pressed into the skin to treat uneven skin tone and texture. When the microneedling device is pressed into the skin, it creates small micro-channels that trigger the body’s natural healing processes. This increases the body’s natural production of collagen for smoother, healthier-looking and -feeling skin.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

There are many benefits to traditional microneedling treatments, including:
