Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling: Toronto’s Complexion Renewal Revolution

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling has leveled up the natural restructuring power of collagen induction therapy for your skin.

Microneedling has long been a trusted scar treatment and professional anti-ageing tool, thanks to its natural collagen stimulation (collagenesis) and skin-smoothing ability.

Also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), microneedling uses incredibly fine needles on stamps or rollers to create micro-channels in your dermis. These microchannels accelerate cell renewal and allow the deep penetration of nutrient formulas.

Non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments are always in demand at Dr. Cory Torgerson’s Toronto laser clinic. But now, RF microneedling in Toronto has amplified the skin-firming potential of a patient favourite.

Dr. Torgerson offers Potenza RF microneedling by CynoSure and the Darwin RF microneedling system by Luvo Medical, bringing you a broad spectrum of skin renewal for diverse needs.

How Does Microneedling Tighten and Smooth Your Skin?

Your skin’s elastin and collagen will deteriorate over time, even if your nutrition and skincare are on point!

Collagen is the structural protein in your tissue responsible for a firm, toned body. You may first begin to notice signs of collagen loss in your 30s and 40s when dullness, sagging, or fine lines appear. With age, hyperpigmentation/sunspots and enlarged pores may also lead to a dull, uneven complexion because your skin cells replenish more slowly over the years.

Whether it’s the crow’s-feet around your eyes, loose skin on your neck, or fine lines around your mouth that you notice first, microneedling devices are a safe way to kickstart fresh, stronger collagen and a more toned appearance.

Microneedling triggers the natural healing cascade painlessly through controlled micro-injuries in the dermis. That’s because even tiny injuries that you can’t see generate powerful healing mechanisms to replenish your collagen.

What do microneedling devices look like? They resemble hand-held rollers, detail pens, or stamps covered in small, short needles. They are only 1.5 mm to 3 mm long, so they can barely be felt. However, as they are pressed into skin at a controlled, shallow depth, they directly access the collagen matrix.

During the weeks and months following treatment, even-toned, smooth skin is regenerated. We also love the way that temporary microchannels allow up to 80% more of nutrient formulas applied to your skin to be absorbed during your session.

How Does RF Microneedling Surpass Microneedling Alone?

Whenever we can amplify a good thing, we jump on that chance! Gentle radiofrequency waves applied through advanced microneedling devices can direct thermal energy deep into skin, past the surface barrier.

What that means for you is more dramatic results from RF microneedling treatment compared with CIT alone. Think of it as super-charged microneedling!

Radiofrequency microneedling uses about one billion times less energy than X-rays do. This innovation in energy has been utilized for cosmetic skin concerns since 2001 and is considered to be exceptionally safe and effective.

Though it might sound intimidating, RF microneedling isn’t painful and won’t leave your skin red or peeling. Thermal energy delivered underneath the skin’s surface in pulses directly targets collagenesis without causing visible damage.

Darwin RF vs. CynoSure’s Potenza Microneedling

The Darwin microneedling device by LUVO Medical brings incredible skin-lifting and tightening capabilities to our suite of RF laser services. Its non-insulated needles increase thermal energy delivery, which is well tolerated by light, Fitzpatrick 1-3 skin types. Darwin also boasts advanced vacuum technology to minimize discomfort during RF microneedling treatments.

Darwin RF microneedling works on the body or face to reduce the appearance of acne scars, enlarged pores, sun damage, fine lines, and capillaries (spider veins). This device delivers transformative radiofrequency microneedling, but it doesn’t require lengthy downtime, so you can get back to your favourite activities right away.

CynoSure’s Potenza RF Microneedling device is the world’s first system of its kind to combine the versatile monopolar and bipolar radiofrequencies at 1 or 2 MHz.

The flexibility of Potenza RF microneedling allows us to personalize our patient treatments based on diverse skin types, anywhere on the body, year-round.

Potenza has 4 different RF modes and 10 unique tips designed to calibrate depth of treatment. Its one-of-a-kind Fusion Tip enhances product penetration. From Fitzpatrick 1 to 5, a full range of skin tones are suitable for treatment with Potenza.

How Can RF Microneedling Solve Your Skin Issues?

The first step to take, long before a face or neck lift surgery, involves personalized non-surgical laser skin tightening. Dr. Torgerson offers numerous treatment options to naturally regenerate the plump, skin- smoothing collagen and elastin you need. RF microneedling is suitable for all ages and stands the test of time as a great first line of defence for pro-ageing.

RF microneedling can treat:

  • The delicate eye area
  • Fine lines around the mouth
  • Jawline
  • Forehead
  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Thighs
  • Tummy
  • And more!

Microneedling triggers hydrating hyaluronic acid formation for supple, firm skin, along with strengthening of collagen and elastin fibres.

Our Toronto RF microneedling patients report notable reductions in the appearance of sunspots, crepey skin, acne scars, broken capillaries, and sagging.

Because the combined range of our RF microneedling devices treats all ethnicities safely, radiofrequency skin tightening is worry-free and now possible for everyone.

Considerations for Radiofrequency Microneedling Results and Recovery

Our clients love the way that radiofrequency microneedling treatments can be applied quickly and don’t require downtime. Compared with deep chemical peels or ablative lasers such as CO2, there is no need to book time off work for managing redness or peeling after treatment.

Your practitioner will explain what to expect during and after your RF treatment and will review potential side effects before you begin. RF microneedling patients may notice mild, temporary redness immediately following their procedure and may also sense tingling or warmth during the session. Sensitive skin types can experience a burning sensation, which is managed well using topical solutions and a vacuum comfort tip.

Depending on your individual skin needs and goals, we will recommend a customised plan and maintenance sessions to reveal the skin you’re dreaming of and keep it glowing.
