MICRONEEDLING RF IN SG: PRICE & GUIDE 2024

If you want to recapture your youthful appearance, taking advantage of the benefits offered by anti-aging treatments is one of the easiest ways to do so today. Each non-invasive procedure is designed to accomplish one or more of the following tasks – tighten the skin, stimulate collagen, or infuse subtle enhancements to restore a younger, more radiant countenance.

The natural aging process comes with skin laxity, facial sagging, facial wrinkles, brown spots, dry skin, and loss of facial volume. Facial scars, fine lines, bags under the eyes, facial sagging skin, and wrinkles on face such as under eye wrinkles, neck wrinkles, crows feet eyes, frown lines, glabellar lines and nasolabial lines can make you look older, diminishing your self-confidence. While you cannot completely remove the signs of aging, you can minimize their appearance.

Your face is one of your most important assets, so why not protect it? This article explores the current landscape of
non-invasive anti-aging skin treatments in Singapore.

WHAT ARE THE NON-SURGICAL ANTI-AGING SKIN TREATMENTS TODAY?

One of the non-surgical anti-aging skin treatment is the RF Microneedling in SG: Skin Resurfacing Treatment. As the demand for shorter, gentler, more effective methods of facial rejuvenation grow stronger with time, sophisticated methods offering fast, lasting results came into existence.

For early signs of aging, retinoids, vitamin C,
and alpha hydroxy acids may suffice. Chemical peels, dermabrasion, micro needle radio frequency, ultrasound energy devices, radio frequency, and laser resurfacing become viable options for addressing moderate to severe facial sun damage.

Deeper facial lines may be treated with BTX Neurotoxin or fillers, including hyaluronic acid injections.

NON-SURGICAL ANTI-AGING SKIN TREATMENT: MICRONEEDLING AND RADIO FREQUENCY

When it comes to improving skin tone and texture, getting rid of stubborn acne scars, melasma, rosacea and smoothing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, one non-invasive beauty treatment has emerged: micro needle radio frequency. Using microneedles to deliver thermal energy to the dermis, RF microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production to improve the texture and plumpness of the skin. Generation of new, collagen-rich tissue tightens skin, reduces scars, wrinkles, stretchmarks and fine lines in the skin.

WHAT IS RF MICRONEEDLING?

RF microneedling is a treatment for the skin whereby ultra-fine needles are inserted into the skin to create controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the natural healing processes of the skin. This is augmented with the application of heat via radiofrequency conduction, which further triggers collagen repair and remodelling, firming and tightening of the skin, as well as regulation of blood vessels within.

Fully FDA-approved, the technology utilises gold microneedles to penetrate the skin and two proprietary RF modes (pulsed wave and continuous wave) to precisely apply heat in the target layers within. Pulsed wave is best used when treating pigment and redness, while continuous wave is ideal for scarring and skin tightening. The depth of needling and intensity of the RF application can also be further adjusted as appropriate.

This allows us to tailor the treatment according to the desired benefits and the underlying skin condition, optimising results and minimising the risk of side effects.

HOW DOES MICRO NEEDLE RADIO FREQUENCY DEVICE WORK?

MICRO NEEDLE RADIO FREQUENCY TRIGGERS SKIN REPAIR

Micro needle radio frequency device works by delivering controlled and efficient micro needle radio frequency energy into your skin via very small needles.

Fully FDA-approved, the microneedling with radiofrequency technology utilises gold micro needles radio frequency to penetrate the skin and two proprietary RF modes (pulsed wave and continuous wave) to precisely apply heat in the target layers within. Pulsed wave is best used when treating pigment and redness, while continuous wave is ideal for scarring and skin tightening. The depth of microneedling and radio frequency intensity of the RF application can also be further adjusted as appropriate. This allows us to tailor the microneedling with radiofrequency treatment according to the desired benefits and the underlying skin condition, optimising results and minimising the risk of side effect

  • Elimination or reduction of acne scars

WHAT TO EXPECT FOR RF MICRONEEDLING BEFORE AND AFTER?

BEFORE

A numbing cream will be applied prior to micro needle radio frequency treatment to minimise any potential discomfort. There can be a pulling or tingling sensation every time energy is delivered, which will vary according to the depth of tissue and area of the face being treated.

RF microneedling is very well tolerated by almost all patients, regardless of age, gender, and skin type. The sensation is usually described as comfortable with light pressure and a tingling or prickly sensation on the skin. There is usually little to no pain experienced. Numbing cream is also applied prior to treatment to minimise any potential discomfort.

DURING TREATMENT

The treatment itself involves using the microneedling with radiofrequency handpiece in a sequential stamping fashion over the entire face. Depending on the skin condition and the treatment scope this may involve multiple passes, especially over areas of concern, when indicated. There is minimal or no bleeding or needle marks due to the very fine needles used as well as the coagulative effect of the RF application.

AFTER

Immediately after the microneedling with radiofrequency treatment, there may be localised redness or swelling over treated areas. This is normal and usually subsides within minutes to hours. A topical cream is usually prescribed to help soothe the skin in the days following. It is also recommended to use sun protection and to avoid prolonged sun exposure as well as to avoid using any potentially harsh products on the skin for at least a few days.

WHAT IS DUAL WAVE MICRONEEDLING WITH RADIO FREQUENCY (RF)?

Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment or 黄金微针, is a treatment that uses a combination of continuous wave and pulsed wave for the treatment of multiple skin conditions.

ULTRA-SHORT PULSE WAVE (PW)

Pulse wave treats melasma and PIH by targeting some of the root cause. In the case of melasma, one of the problems lies in the abnormal blood vessels that nourish the pigment cells. The ultra-short wave can target the reticular dermis, where these blood vessels are abundantly present. The ultra-short frequency also helps to strengthen the weak basal membrane and prevents the movement of pigments from the epidermis down to the dermis. Most importantly, the shorter duration of the pulse wave generates less heat, which keeps the melanocytes stable.   

WHAT IS CONTINUOUS WAVE (CW) MODE OF SYLFIRM X SINGAPORE?

CONTINUOUS WAVE (CW) MODE

Continuous wave (CW) mode of Sylfirm X Singapore is more intense as compared to the pulsed mode. The CW generates higher temperatures when it comes in contact with the skin cells. As a result of greater RF delivery along with CW modes, extensive healing will be generated around the electrodes, stimulating dermal remodeling and skin tightening. These effects reduce the overall appearance of scarring.  

BENEFITS OF CW MODE
Facial Rejuvenation - Enlarged Pores, Wrinkles, Fine Line, Skin Laxity 
Body Rejuvenation – Saggy Skin on the Neck, Double Chin, Décolletage
