RF Microneedling in Dixon, Illinois

Beautiful skin requires a healthy diet, adequate hydration, and the right skincare regimen. Even still, aging and skin conditions can affect your appearance despite a healthy lifestyle and effective skincare routine, which is why you need something more. The Wellspring Medical Spa in Dixon, IL, offers RF microneedling, a treatment that can do what your skincare and healthy lifestyle cannot by tightening the skin, increasing collagen production, and eliminating skin imperfections.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a treatment that stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin to address and correct the most common aesthetic and aging-related concerns.

The entire treatment process is natural and does not require surgical techniques, invasive measures, or harsh topical products to promote results. At The Wellspring Medical Spa, we use the Sylfirm X® device to perform our radiofrequency microneedling treatments because of its proven effectiveness and advanced technology.

What Is Sylfirm X®?

Sylfirm X® is an RF microneedling device with dual-wavelength capabilities that can treat versatile skin conditions on the face and the body. Its advanced technology ensures a uniform, safe, sterile, and comfortable treatment that results in smoother and younger-looking skin.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

During your microneedling with RF treatment, we apply a topical anesthetic to maximize comfort before using the Sylfirm X device. This device contains ultrafine needles that puncture the skin at a controlled depth. Upon penetration, the needles release radiofrequency energy directly into the targeted tissues. 

The precise delivery of this energy facilitates cellular changes, prompting the skin to ramp up its natural collagen and elastin production. This process helps tighten skin and reduce the appearance of imperfections, such as scars and wrinkles, leading to rejuvenated and more youthful-looking skin over subsequent weeks.

What Can RF Microneedling Treat? 

Acne Scars

If acne has left you with unwanted scars, consider a treatment that goes beyond surface-level solutions. Our microneedling and radiofrequency technique directly targets the deep layers of skin where scars form, encouraging collagen regeneration that can reduce the appearance of these scars over time.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks that just won’t fade could be a thing of the past. By employing radiofrequency microneedling, we are able to reach the underlying layers where stretch marks form. The treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers, which can help make these marks less visible.

Loose and Sagging Skin

Combat the effects of gravity and time with our RF needling approach. By directly targeting the deeper skin layers, this treatment can promote collagen and elastin production, which can help to tighten loose and sagging skin, giving you a firmer, more youthful look.

Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles can be effectively treated without downtime with Sylfirm X. Our RF microneedling treatment stimulates the deeper layers of your skin, giving the surface of your skin more support through additional collagen and elastin. This can soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles, creating smoother skin.

Uneven Skin Tone

You can also combat hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin using microneedling with RF. This treatment can help break down excess melanin, reducing dark spots and resulting in a more consistent skin tone.

Uneven Skin Texture

Whether you’re dealing with rough patches or small bumps, our RF microneedling treatment and RF needling techniques can significantly improve your skin texture. As RF needling encourages new skin cells, rough and leathery skin, large pores, and dry skin can all be reduced.

Neck Concerns

With the aging process comes a natural loss of collagen that affects the face and body and also begins to take a toll on the neck area. Many patients develop what has been referred to as the turkey neck. Sylfirm X® treatments can improve the appearance of the skin on the neck by tightening the area.

We typically schedule three RF microneedling treatments to reduce chin fat and tighten the skin, naturally improving the appearance of the neck skin and promoting anti-aging results. Then, we provide ALASTIN restorative neck complex for at-home maintenance. Using this topical product daily will enhance the results of your treatments and help you maintain your results between each treatment and beyond.

Hair Restoration

Not only can the Sylfirm X® device improve the appearance of the skin on the face and the body, but we can also use it for hair restoration treatments. Microneedling and radiofrequency on the scalp combined with topical exosomes and PRF can significantly improve the health, appearance, and quality of the hair. The radiofrequency microneedling device creates micro-wounds on the scalp while also delivering radiofrequency energy into the area to heal damaged hair follicles and awaken dormant ones.

We take advantage of the microchannels in the skin and the temporary increased absorption rate by applying exosomes and PRF to the area. The growth factors will absorb into the scalp and promote renewed hair growth and improved hair and scalp health. This treatment can be scheduled as a standalone treatment for those who have experienced poor quality hair, a receding hairline, thinning hair, or balding. It can also be combined with other hair restoration treatments such as the REVIAN cap to maximize the results.

The Benefits of RF Microneedling

If you are looking for an anti-aging, skin-tightening treatment that requires little to no social downtime and can be combined with other treatments, RF microneedling is the perfect option. Because this treatment combines needling techniques with radiofrequency energy, it is the gold standard of collagen induction therapy in the cosmetic industry, helping patients achieve younger-looking skin. Other treatment benefits include the following:

  • We can combine our Sylfirm X® treatments with other professional treatments for enhanced results.
  • You will see a noticeable improvement in your skin within a few weeks of the treatment.
  • The treatment will make your at-home topical products work better.
  • RF microneedling is natural, so you do not have to worry about adverse side effects from harsh chemicals.

Enhancing Your RF Microneedling Treatment With Add-Ons

At The Wellspring Medical Spa, we know that your time is valuable, which is why we offer add-on treatments that can help you cut down on your office visits and accomplish multiple skincare goals during one appointment.

Plus, we offer special savings for patients interested in undergoing Sculptra® treatments alongside our radiofrequency microneedling sessions. We can give you more details and answer any questions about each of our add-on treatment options at your initial consultation.

BOTOX® Injections

We can combine BOTOX® injections with RF microneedling treatments to reduce time spent in the office and provide patients a convenient way to address multiple skin concerns during a single treatment.

BOTOX® is a wrinkle-relaxing injectable that can temporarily smooth the most common expression lines on the upper half of the face, including crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Results appear within a few days of treatment and last three to four months on average.

Saving On Your RF Microneedling Treatments With Sculptra®

Patients interested in undergoing Sculptra® treatments to address volume loss and smooth lines, wrinkles, and facial folds can benefit from added savings on their RF microneedling treatment with our Sculptra® five-vial deal. Patients who purchase five vials of Sculptra® at once will receive a complimentary Sylfirm X® radiofrequency microneedling treatment.

RF microneedling pairs well with this collagen-stimulating injectable as both stimulate natural collagen production to help patients address different areas of concern.

Exosomes and Red Light Therapy

We will provide red light therapy as a complimentary add-on for your first treatment. Then, going forward, you can add these treatments to your sessions to enhance your results. Exosomes are always included in Sylfirm X treatments; these particles contain growth factors that absorb through the microchannels created by the device into the deeper layers to speed healing, enhance the anti-aging effects of the treatment, and promote cellular regeneration.

Light therapy utilizes the power of red LED lights to reduce inflammation, increase natural collagen and elastin production, and promote healthier and younger-looking skin. A combination of exosomes and red LED light therapy can work with the natural collagen-stimulating effects of the RF microneedling device to maximize results.

Reverse the Aging Process With Collagen Induction Therapy

If you have healthy skin, free of active acne or a skin infection, and are looking for a natural, non-surgical treatment that can produce dramatic changes in the health and appearance of your skin, you may be the perfect candidate for our radiofrequency microneedling treatments at The Wellspring Medical Spa.
