Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling can tighten and rejuvenate the face by removing damaged skin and stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin, proteins that give the skin its vibrance. If you are looking for facial rejuvenation in microneedling in Boulder, CO can give the skin a whole new youthful radiance through a minimally invasive process.

What It Is and How It Works

RF microneedling combines two effective treatments into one powerful solution for correcting skin imperfections. Tiny needles puncture the skin and create small wounds in the internal skin layer (dermis). The needles then release radiofrequency energy into these wounds that heat the dermis and invigorate the production of collagen and elastin, compounds that tighten the skin as the wounds naturally heal. The result is smoother, firmer, gorgeous skin that looks good for years to come because the restructuring is initiated from the inside out.
