Shrink Pores this Summer with RF Microneedling

Original Article By Greenwich Medical Spa Staff.

Summer’s warm temperatures can wreak havoc on your skin. From sweating to pore-clogging products and makeup, you might notice skin that is less clear and appears to shine rather than glow. And as you pile on the remedies, you enter a vicious cycle of more issues and more topical cures. Instead of trying to fix this problem with temporary topical solutions, you can improve your skin from below with a pore-minimizing treatment and actually shrink your pores so that your summer skin will soon be described with positive words like dewy and luminous.

An advanced concept in skin rejuvenation, RF Microneedling, like the new Vivace system, combines radio frequency energy – that’s the RF part – with microneedling to tighten and tone skin with the benefit of making pores smaller. With smaller pores, skin appears firmer, and you’ll need less product to keep it that way. Not only is pore-minimizing RF Microneedling safe to perform during summer, unlike many skin treatments that require you to stay out of the sun, it’s also safe and effective for all skin types.

Let’s start with discussing the benefits of pore-minimizing microneedling, which is an all-natural treatment that consists of using fine needles to puncture the surface of the skin. The needles open tiny portals in your skin, causing your body’s healing mechanisms to kick in, which means that your body boosts collagen production. While the portals are open from the microneedling treatment, RF energy, which is a type of heat, is sent below to stimulate even more collagen production. Increased collagen equals tighter skin, including smaller pores.

These powerful combined treatments require no downtime, so you can have pore-minimizing RF Microneedling in Connecticut this summer and still keep up with your busy vacation schedule. At Greenwich Medical Spa, we offer the all-in-one skin rejuvenation system Vivace for patients in Greenwich, Westport and Scarsdale.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
