LASER vs. RF Microneedling

Medication and aesthetic procedures such as lasers and radiofrequency microneedling can be helpful for both acne and rosacea. Some people report feelings of embarrassment, low self-esteem and poor body image as a result of these skin issues. Laser and radiofrequency microneedling treatments at Clinique K can reduce or remove the scarring, swelling, and red pigmentation associated with these conditions. It can also be combined with other treatment methods to reach an optimal outcome.

What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Clinique K offers Cutera Secret Radiofrequency Microneedling as a non-surgical procedure to treat many types of scarring. Secret RF Microneedling uses fractional radio frequency (RF) for tissue coagulation and hemostasis designed to stimulate and remodel collagen in the skin. By adjusting the micro-needles, the skin can be treated at various depths, tailoring the procedure to address each patient’s individual concerns.

RF Microneedling:
The procedure

A Cutera Secret Radiofrequency microneedling procedure starts out with a numbing agent applied to the treatment area for up to 30 minutes. Once the treatment area is numb, the microneedles are applied to the skin and pierce the skin surface. A total of 25 tiny gold needles deliver the radiofrequency energy, warming the skin layers while stimulating collagen production processes on contact.

What is Laser
Technology?

Clinique K uses the Vbeam Perfecta by Candela pulsed-dye laser technology to treat rosacea, acne and any other unwanted skin pigmentation. The laser is delivered in pulses, and a dye is used to create different coloured light beams to remove or reduce red pigmentation and inflammation.

The specific light from a laser can accurately target parts of the skin to deliver its energy selectively. Simultaneously, the heat and destruction delivered to these portions of the skin do not affect the healthy areas of the skin. This makes lasers extraordinarily specific. Lasers have been used to target multiple compounds in the skin.

Laser Technology:
The procedure

A laser is applied to the affected area and heat from wavelengths of light to collapse the visible, tiny red blood vessels. Anesthetic is not necessary during a VBeam treatment as discomfort is minimal. Depending on the severity of the condition, it may require more than one treatment to reach the optimal outcome. One treatment typically lasts 10-30 minutes.

Recovery from these procedures is usually within three days.
