Radiofrequency Microneedling with Astra RF

Book FoxrockBook Rathgar

What is Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling?

Astra RF is a minimally invasive electrical device that uses very fine gold plated insulated needles to create micro injury to the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. At the same time Radiofrequency energy is delivered to the dermis without damaging the epidermis and minimising downtime.


What does RF Microneedling do?

Using a head of fine gold plated needles the Astra delivers pulses of radiofrequency instantly heating the dermis which triggers the skin’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production and skin tightening. Treatment with the Astra RF improves skin texture, tone and density, reduces pore size, softens lines and wrinkles and can reduce acne scarring.


Why does the Skin Benefit from RF Microneedling?

Over time, the levels of collagen in the skin deplete resulting in lines, wrinkles and skin laxity. By stimulating collagen production this treatment can remodel the skin and restore a more youthful appearance.


Downtime – Is there much downtime?

Depending on the health of your skin, and your skin type, downtime can vary from client to client.

·       The majority of clients show noticeable redness on the day of the treatment which recovers in 24 to 48hours; and

·       Some clients have seen a more marked reaction, mostly after their initial treatment, with swelling and redness lasting up to 3-5 days in extreme cases. If this happens you are welcome to return to the salon for an LED treatment which will help with the healing process;

·       Most clients find that the reaction after their first treatment is the most intense with the irreaction time decreasing with each treatment as their skin health improves.

We recommend any RF Microneedling treatment is carried out a minimum of 7 days prior to any social or holiday plans.


Does it Hurt?

We apply a topical anaesthetic to the skin 20-30 minutes prior to your treatment. This numbs the area and makes the treatment more comfortable. You will still feel the microneedling action; however it is not painful.
