If you’ve ever found yourself daydreaming about a vacation to the Fountain of Youth, trust us — you’re not the only one searching for its coveted coordinates on Google Maps. While the existence of such a place has yet to be discovered, we do know where one can find the Fountain Ov You®, which, in our humble opinion, is the next best thing.
At OVME, we’ve been helping our clients achieve gorgeous, glowing skin for years by offering a variety of treatments that range from photo facials and laser resurfacing to medical-grade facials and luxury skincare products. One such treatment, however, has been gaining traction in recent years, and that’s OVME RF Microneedling. Benefits of this procedure include firmer, younger-looking skin, along with improved tone and texture. Forget the Fountain OV You — you’ve just discovered RF Microneedling at OVME.
“One of the top benefits of OVME RF Microneedling is that it keeps your skin young, smooth, and firm over time,” explained Elizabeth Weiler, MBA, LE, and Director of Education and Development at OVME.
The Lowdown on OVME RF Microneedling Benefits
Sounds like a dream come true—but what is it, exactly? Microneedling involves superficially puncturing the epidermis with fine needles (we promise, it’s not nearly as painful as it sounds!), stimulating new collagen production that leads to that youthful restoration of volume and texture.
“We are all interested in anti-aging and looking our best, right?” Weiler posed. “So why not do it with little-to-no social downtime and no pain?”
She went on to say that OVME RF Microneedling is perfect for:
- Anyone who wants to refine texture and tone
- Clients who have busy, active lifestyles or spend a lot of time outside—i.e., those who are typically not good candidates for laser treatments
- Pain-phobic clients
- Clients who prefer “natural” solutions or are avoiding chemicals
- Clients who want or need fast results—OVME RF Microneedling works faster than other microneedling options, like SkinPen
- Any client who wants more youthful, smooth, and radiant skin
Microneedling has been around since the early 1900s, but it wasn’t until 1995 that the procedure made its first appearance as a medical treatment for wrinkles and scars. Today, we’ve combined microneedling with the advanced technology of radiofrequency energy to deliver incredible results using the Vivace device.
This technology, coupled with the knowledge of our highly trained medical experts, means you’ll get to experience the full range of OVME RF Microneedling benefits when you book an appointment at any one of our studios. Here’s what you can expect after an OVME RF Microneedling treatment at OVME.
The 7 OVME RF Microneedling Benefits You Need to Know
1. Kiss visible signs of aging goodbye.
We talked a little about how OVME RF Microneedling stimulates new collagen production. But what exactly do es that mean? Collagen is a protein that’s responsible for skin elasticity, among other things, that tends to dissipate as we age. By boosting collagen production, we can improve skin elasticity and therefore reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is exactly what microneedling do es—and why it works so well to reduce the visible signs of aging.
2. Improve skin texture and tone.
One of the biggest OVME RF Microneedling benefits is the improvement of skin texture and tone. Hyperpigmentation can occur for any number of reasons — it can be triggered by sun damage, pregnancy, or trauma to the skin. The microscopic wounds caused by microneedling trigger your body’s healing response, leading to the formation of new, healthy skin that matches your skin tone. The same reasoning applies to the treatment of scars and stretch marks, too.
3. Treat acne and acne scars.
OVME RF Microneedling treats acne and acne scars for the same reason it improves overall texture: by stimulating the skin’s healing response. Many clients have seen a drastic reduction in the appearance of their acne scars thanks to this particular treatment.
4. Stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss.
Surprisingly enough, OVME RF Microneedling can be used to treat hair loss or alopecia. We often think of treatments on the other side of the spectrum, like laser hair removal, when we visit a place like OVME, but in this case, it’s the opposite! We know that OVME RF Microneedling helps ramp up collagen and regenerate skin cells, but it can also regenerate hair follicles and stimulate hair growth for both men and women alike.
5. OVME RF Microneedling is minimally invasive.
One of the best parts about microneedling is that it’s minimally invasive and requires little downtime. The procedure takes just 15-20 minutes in total. You may experience mild redness, swelling, and skin warmth in the first 24 hours after treatment. This is normal and can be treated with the help of cold packs post-procedure.
Following OVME RF Microneedling, we recommend using a very mild, soothing cleanser to avoid irritating skin. It’s also best to refrain from applying makeup until the following day, and when you do, be sure to use clean makeup brushes and mineral-based products. You’ll also want to avoid sun exposure for up to three days post-treatment. And as always, don’t forget your sunscreen!
6. OVME RF Microneedling is safe for all skin types.
This treatment is a wonderful option for most skin types, including darker tones. OVME RF Microneedling does not cause damage in the way that something like laser treatments might. Therefore, your skin’s natural pigmentation will not be affected.
7. Combine with other treatments to boost results.
Did you know that OVME RF Microneedling can be used in combination with other treatments? One of our favorites is the PRP facial, which stands for platelet-rich plasma. This type of facial uses platelets and growth factors in your own blood to stimulate the healing process and boost collagen production. Active PRP is applied to the face, neck, or chest and then microneedled into the skin. Following the procedure, an additional application of PRP is placed on the skin to promote tissue healing.
Another beneficial combination? OVME RF Microneedling and Botox®!
“If you already love your Botox®, OVME RF Microneedling and Botox® go together like peanut butter and jelly! The two absolutely complement and enhance the result of each service,” Weiler explained.
“Interestingly, there are studies that suggest that getting Botox® during the months after OVME RF Microneedling treatment will allow for more collagen and elastin to mature, meaning you could see even better results in areas you might have been moving more without Botox®, like crow’s feet.”
