First Steps

What’s the First Step?

The first step on the road to achieving youthful, vibrant skin is to book a consultation with Dr. Crawford. During the consultation we will discuss every aspect of the treatment with you, so you know what to expect. From the tools being used to the price of the treatment, you will have all the information you need. Dr. Crawford will take the time to look at the areas on your skin that you are looking to improve and assess how RF Microneedling will benefit you. She may also take pictures of your skin and the focus areas to determine the best technique for your condition. If she has any concerns, these will be discussed during your consultation, as Dr. Crawford will never recommend a treatment or procedure that may potentially have adverse effects. This is also your opportunity to learn more about the treatment and ask questions you may have. Book your consultation today and get started. 


What to expect on the day of an RF Microneedling treatment

On the day of your treatment, your skin will be cleaned to prevent infection and a topical numbing agent will be applied, and given time to set in your skin (up to one hour). Once the skin is numb, Dr. Crawford will begin using the RF Microneedling device on the specified areas of treatment. This step can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the amount of surface area being worked on. 

The final step is to apply a growth solution to support cell regeneration. Once all the procedure steps are completed, Dr. Crawford may offer a soothing solution to minimize any discomfort if you feel any pain. Since the procedure is non-invasive, you will be able to resume regular activities after your appointment.

RF Microneedling recovery

There is no downtime required after RF Microneedling, but there are some key steps Dr. Crawford will recommend to ensure a smooth recovery on your road to achieving bright and healthy skin. 

Ice packs can be applied for any areas that feel swollen or irritated after the treatment. Avoid makeup and other chemical-based products on your skin for 24 hours. 

It is important to wear SPF for several weeks after your treatment. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun during this time. Using a gentle cleanser on your skin at home is advised to keep the skin clean without harsh chemicals.
