10 Facts You Didn’t Know About Gold RF Microneedling

10 Facts You Didn’t Know About Gold RF Microneedling

10 Facts You Didn’t Know About Gold RF Microneedling

So what is this new treatment that’s taking the facial market by storm? Gold RF Microneedling is a subset of Fractional Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling. Well, the secret is in the name: our Gold RF Microneedling has gold-plated microneedles. But how will the treatment improve your complexion? Here are 10 facts you didn’t know about Gold RF Microneedling.

 Gold RF Microneedling is a subset of Fractional Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Fact 1: Gold RF Microneedling is a Non-Surgical Treatment

Gold RF Microneedling is a revolutionary skin treatment that delivers dramatic anti-ageing results by combining fractional radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling. That stimulate tissue remodelling, thereby triggering the production of collagen. Then, by repairing, remodelling and resurfacing the skin at a cellular level, Gold RF Microneedling is able to improve a variety of skin conditions. That brings us to…

Fact 2: RF Microneedling Improves A Whole Bunch of Skin Woes

Acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks; you name it! Gold RF Microneedling can effectively treat a whole bunch of skin conditions. It can lift saggy skin and revitalise dull and uneven skin tone. It can even minimise the appearance of large pores too!

Fact 3: Yes, It’s Actually Gold

Gold RF Microneedling uses ultra-fine gold-plated microneedles which can penetrate the skin without any bruising and bleeding. As the needles penetrate the skin, RF energy is released to trigger collagen and elastin production.The conductivity of the gold-plated needles actually facilitates the transfer of the radiofrequency energy. As the gold-plated needles deliver RF energy to the skin, it creates new microchannels linking your skin’s layers.

Fact 4: Gold RF Microneedling is Backed by Research

We wouldn’t be providing this treatment if we knew it wasn’t effective. There are several research papers that prove the effectiveness of RF Microneedling. There are three studies that we look at for the effectiveness of Gold RF Microneedling.

  • In one 2018 study (Source), the RF microneedle treatment offers a minimally invasive treatment option with little downtime for the treatment of acne scars, improvement in skin texture, and reduced size of skin pores. The results suggest this treatment offers high satisfaction in results among clinicians and patients.
  • In a 2014 study (Source), it was concluded that RF Microneedling treatment can be considered as an effective modality of treatment for moderate to severe acne scars in patients with an added advantage of minimal downtime and effective improvement.

In a 2020 article (Source), Microneedling with radiofrequency is a great option for skin tightening and resurfacing to treat wrinkles, lip lines, acne scars, other depressed scars, and stretch marks, and it can be used regardless of skin phototype. RF microneedling is deemed safe to use in patients with darker skin types

Fact 5: Gold RF Microneedling Is Different From Lasers

The name says it all. With the gold-plated ultra-fine microneedles, Gold RF Microneedling is actually more precise and versatile. It is truly a breakthrough in fractional and radiofrequency technology.

Fact 6: The RF Strength is Adjustable

The delivery of thermal energy deep into the skin is crucial to stimulating collagen production. The radiofrequency energy can be adjusted between 60w to 120w. The amount of power is based on the individual needs of the customer and different skin concerns such as acne scars, wrinkles, pigmentation, saggy skin and more.

Fact 7: Needles are System Controlled

This sophisticated technology allows the needle penetration depth to be system controlled. That way, its application can be consistent across the different parts of your face. Different needle sizes are used on the different areas of your skin as well: 0.5 to 1.0mm for the forehead, 1.0 to 2.0mm for the face, and 1.0mm to 3.0mm for treating stretch marks.

The microneedles used in Gold RF Microneedling are ultra-fine too, which can be adjusted between 0.5mm to 3.0mm. Since the microneedles are so thin, they can actually penetrate the skin without causing any bruising and bleeding.

Fact 8: Gold RF Microneedling Has Shorter Downtimes

But you can enjoy a faster recovery time with Gold RF Microneedling. Most of the time, you only need around 5 days; you can even apply makeup 24 hours after your Gold RF Microneedling session. That’s unlike the conventional laser resurfacing treatments for acne scar removal, which usually needs a downtime of 7-14 days before all the skin redness, swelling and skin peeling subside. 

The recovery time is faster when compared to fractional lasers because the outer layer of the skin, the epidermal layer, is spared. With Gold RF Microneedling, precise energy is delivered directly into the dermal skin layer.

Fact 9: Gold RF Microneedling Has Shorter Downtimes

RF Microneedling is actually safe for all skin types. For Fractional ablative lasers (e.g. Fractional CO2 lasers), the outer layer of the skin is penetrated before entering the dermal layer. 

For those of us with darker skin, Gold RF Microneedling is actually a safer alternative to laser treatments as it poses lower pigmentation risks. That’s because the Gold RF Microneedling bypasses the outer layer of the skin. So, you can rest easy knowing that the risk of side effects such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation for darker skin tones is lower for Gold RF Microneedling.

Fact 10: Gold RF Microneedling Can be Enhanced with Serums

Gold RF Microneedling can be combined with 3 possible serums (Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl, Resveratrol). The treatment actually allows the three different kinds of serum to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin. So, expect your skin to be firmer, tighter and more rejuvenated skin after the treatment.
