What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Thrive Aesthetics is proud to offer the revolutionary and advanced radiofrequency microneedling in Nairobi, Kenya.

This fairly new treatment, also known as RF microneedling, has gained popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness in stimulating the growth of healthy new skin. It also reducing the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, and sagging skin. While traditional microneedling has been in use for more than 25 years, radio frequency energy stimulates the rejuvenation process.


How Does Radiofrequency Microneedling in Nairobi Work?

RF microneedling utilizes ultra-fine needles along with LED lights emitting radiofrequency waves to produce thermal energy which create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. The process involves irritating the skin and stimulating its repair response while encouraging the body’s ability to naturally produce collagen and elastin fibers. Typically, the treatment involves a device with an array of insulated fine needles designed to puncture the top layer of skin, about up to 3 millimeters deep.


To trigger collagen and elastin production, high-intensity RF energy is applied in a fractional pattern through microneedles. This dual-action process of radiofrequency microneedling promotes tissue remodeling, skin tightening, and overall skin rejuvenation. A serum with specific nutrients that help build new collagen and elastin more quickly is administered immediately afterwards. This results in smoother, firmer, and more even-toned, collagen-rich skin. Often, the esthetician dispenses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) during the treatment.

The cost of radiofrequency microneedling in Nairobi varies depending on the clinic. At Thrive Aesthetics, the cost per session starts from Kshs 13,500 for the best radiofrequency microneedling in Nairobi and Kenya.


What to Do Before & After RF Microneedling Treatment?

Prior to treatment, you should avoid using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, and products containing salicylic acid—which can result in bruising. One should also avoid Accutane (six months prior to treatment), self-tanning lotions, tanning booths or sunbathing (two weeks prior to treatment). Brands of blood-thinning medication including Advil, Motrin, and Aleve (one week prior to treatment) are also to be avoided.


After treatment, the patient develops minor side effects such as a degree of discomfort, redness, or irritation. These should be mild and shouldn’t persist for more than 24 hours. The patient can resume their normal activities within a day, but if side effects are more serious or last longer than 24 hours, contact your provider.


The Process of Getting a Radiofrequency Microneedling in Nairobi

  1. The procedure begins with a consultation with a qualified esthetician or dermatologist who will assess your skin concerns. Then, they’ll discuss the treatment process, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.
  2. The esthetician applies a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort before the session starts. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, the provider will gently glide the RF microneedling focusing on underlying layers of skin to treat scars and tighten tissue. Additionally. it reduce swrinkles and creates a smoother and youthful appearance while improving texture and firmness.
  3. Due to specific concerns it addresses, the device’s needle penetration depth is adjustable. The radio frequency energy is delivered in short bursts, generating heat and stimulating collagen production.
  4. The procedure may take 30 to 40 minutes depending on the treatment area. For best results, prepare to undergo three to four sessions in three – to – eight week intervals, allowing your skin to heal between treatments.
  5. After the procedure, one may experience some mild redness, swelling, or sensitivity, which usually subsides within a few days. The provider will provide post-treatment instructions and recommend skincare products to enhance the healing process and optimize your results.
  6. The patient should begin to see results after three to six months, and they should last about a year. In order to achieve desired results, we recommended having a touch-up session at least once annually.
