How Touch Uses RF Microneedling for Scars

Touch provider and patient examining VISIA skin analysis results

At Touch MedSpa, we understand our patients are looking for an effective treatment for concerns like loose skin, fine lines, and skin texture. But, one of our favorite conditions to treat with RF microneedling is patient scarring.

Because RF microneedling rejuvenates your skin at both a surface and cellular level, you can expect to see improvements with the following common skin concerns:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Irregular texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Redness
  • Cystic Acne

What is RF microneedling like at Touch MedSpa?

RF microneedling is one of our favorite treatments to address overall skin quality, fine lines, acne scarring, and pore size.

After applying a topical numbing cream, your Touch MedSpa provider will gently glide the microneedling device across the treatment area. The Morpheus RF handpiece creates tiny “micro-wounds” in the skin, which prompts the body to undergo a natural healing process. Over the following weeks, your body will generate new collagen and elastin to help “remodel” the area and improve the texture and tone!

During your initial consultation with Touch MedSpa in North Myrtle Beach, we will give you a comprehensive, educational overview of RF microneedling and determine together whether it will best meet your needs and why.

RF microneedling for Scar Treatments

Microneedling for scars is the process of creating tiny channels in the upper layers of the skin to provoke collagen remodeling. Collagen is naturally produced by the body as a wound-healing response but, as we get older, less collagen is made. Microneedling is a technique that stimulates its production. 

RF microneedling at Touch MedSpa incorporates radiofrequency energy into that restorative process. In this treatment, the microneedles are the pathway for RF energy to enter the skin. The result of this combination is a more profound increase in collagen production and remodeling of scar tissue.

What to expect from Microneedling for Scars

Collagen remodeling occurs gradually over several weeks or months. Depending on the severity of scarring, multiple Morpheus8 RF treatments may be scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart. 

Many patients start seeing improvements within a month or so of the initial treatment. From there, subsequent visits continue to remodel the scar tissue to be lighter, softer, and better blended with surrounding skin.
