At Re-Nu Aesthetics, we want to introduce you to a powerful skincare treatment that can unlock some incredible healing powers in your body to perfect your complexion and resolve some of your most problematic, confidence-draining skin conditions. We perform RF Microneedling with PRP treatments using the Morpheus8 device to perfect the skin and also add PRP and PRF to the treatment process to further boost your collagen production and enhance your results.
RF Microneedling with PRP
Radiofrequency microneedling with PRP is a treatment that addresses aging and skin imperfections with multiple treatment techniques. It uses a combination of radiofrequency energy, needling, platelet-rich plasma, and platelet-rich fibrin to perfect the skin using different approaches that all increase collagen production.
Morpheus8: How and Why It Works
Morpheus8 is a powerful radiofrequency microneedling device that combines two effective collagen induction therapy methods into one treatment process. As the device creates tiny punctures in the skin’s surface, it also emits radiofrequency energy to gently heat the tissue, which further induces collagen production.
A Powerful Form of Collagen Induction Therapy
This twofold approach to growing new collagen delivers dramatic results that can combat different skin imperfections, including lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and skin laxity. The device can also help improve skin texture and tone and enhance overall skin health. As the needles in the Morpheus8 device create tiny injuries, also known as microchannels, on the surface of the skin, the body responds with a healing and inflammatory reaction.
The result is increased cellular turnover and healthier-looking skin. As the Morpheus8 device delivers radiofrequency energy into the skin during the needling process, it forces the body to make even more collagen in the deeper layers of the skin.
Adding PRP and PRF to the Treatment
Adding PRP and PRF to the treatment will dramatically increase results. Platelet-rich fiber and platelet-rich plasma are substances we derive from your blood with a standard blood draw, and then we apply them to the skin in a topical serum form during the treatment to deliver nutrients, regenerative properties, and growth factors.
These growth factors absorb into the microchannels created by the needling device and can reach down into the deeper layers to create noticeable changes in the skin over time. RF microneedling is an extremely powerful, natural treatment; but adding PRF and PRF to the treatment makes it even better.
What Is PRF?
You may have heard of PRP, platelet-rich plasma, before. It’s the part of your blood responsible for healing, among many other important processes. PRP contains growth factors, and when isolated and applied to the skin during a microneedling treatment, it acts as a powerful anti-aging serum.
However, you may not be familiar with PRF, which stands for platelet-rich fiber. Platelet-rich fibrin is similar to PRP, but it contains a higher concentration of growth factors, requires less blood for preparation, and can better target some of the more severe signs of aging.
How Many RF Microneedling With PRP Treatments Will I Need?
You will notice visible benefits from just one RF microneedling treatment with Morpheus8, but the best results come from a series of treatments with a few weeks between each. Each treatment will help build and enhance your results and promote increased collagen and elastin production in the weeks following treatment.
Most patients need three treatments to achieve the best results, but if you’re trying to improve the appearance of more severe skin imperfections, like deep acne scars, you may need more sessions to induce the amount of collagen production it will take to fill and smooth those scars. We custom-tailor each treatment based on our patients’ concerns and can give you more details about what your plan will look like after your initial consultation.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
RF microneedling with PRP uses different depths of tiny, hair-thin needles and stamps them into the skin during treatment, but if you’re concerned about pain, you needn’t be. We can apply a topical numbing solution to your skin before beginning the treatment, and this takes approximately 30 minutes to numb the skin. As the needles stamp your skin repetitively, you may feel a warming sensation and some gentle pressure, but you won’t have to worry about discomfort.
Is There Downtime?
Post-treatment, your skin may appear red and feel tight. This sensation will subside within the first 24 hours. It’s essential that you focus on hydrating your skin with quality moisturizer, avoid the sun, and follow all of the post-treatment care instructions that we’ll provide you with at the end of your treatment.
Am I a Candidate?
If you’re suffering from different skin concerns and want to renew your complexion using a natural treatment process, you may be a good candidate for Morpheus8 treatments with PRP or platelet-rich fibrin. The good news is that since the treatment doesn’t use any harsh ingredients or unnatural products to perfect the skin, but instead uses the PRP and PRF derived from your blood, you won’t have to worry about an allergic or adverse reaction.
Patients cannot have an allergic reaction to their own blood, so you can feel confident scheduling this treatment, knowing that not only will you have a positive reaction, but you will achieve excellent results.
