Dr Anvika here the Dermatologist practicing in Pitampura, Delhi . Today we are going to talk about the skin tightening and brightening procedure by technology called microneedling RF.
At the very first, I am going to demonstrate the steps and then we are going to talk about the frequently asked questions. So today we have a beautiful lady in her 60’s who wants to get the skin tightening and brightening done. The very first we are going to clean the entire face, so after cleaning the face we will apply the numbing cream, so the numbing cream is applied all over the face and it is left for an hour so that the procedure is rendered very comfortable for the patients. We apply the numbing cream all over the face so that the procedure is really rendered comfortable for the patients. We stretch the skin and we actually start giving the shots.
You can see the patient is comfortable like this - we will cover the entire face and the neck. The person can get it done on hands, chest, buttocks, so wherever, a person is looking for skin tightening and brightening they can get this microneedling RF procedure done. After the procedure there is mild swelling in redness which remains for around 2 hours and after that person is ready to go back to work or to party or wherever.
So as you can see in this procedure, the needles actually get inside the skin and release the radio frequency energy. So that's why this procedure is very effective because we are actually getting inside the skin to bring about a real change. So, microneedling radio frequency is an excellent procedure, to get the skin tightening and brightening. How does it work? The microneedles actually get inside the skin and releases the radio frequency energy.
Now as wall is made up of brakes skin is made up of elastic and collagen fibres, once the radio frequency energy gets inside the skin it tells the skin to produce new collagen and elastin, as the skin slowly forms the new collagen and elastin, the skin gradually titans and brightens.
How many sessions are required - Around three sessions done at once in a month interval are required. How much time does each section takes - Each section takes around 2 hours. Now is it painful - When the procedure is done after the prior application of the numbing cream. Now once the skin is numbed, the procedure is rendered pretty comfortable for everyone. Is it really safe - Well all these procedures are US FDA approved for safety and efficacy, it’s really safe provided it is done using a US FDA approved machine and done under a doctor supervision who has the right expertise for the machines. Now once the results are attained, for how long do they last - After the three sessions the result last for around 1 to 2 years depending upon the person's life style and is getting the repeat session done necessity, not at all.
Once after you get the desired results after 2 years suppose the results vein of you are back to 0 but never minus one that is your skin won't look even more haggard if you don't opt for the procedure again. So choosing the procedure again is entirely out of choice and never out of dependency.
So finally in case you are looking for that instant brightness and skin tightening and safe and effective manner do contact us on the given address. Thank you.read more

Patient Review Highlights
Salicylic peels are an excellent choice for treatment of active acne, both reducing the acne breakouts themselves and the inflammation caused by the acne. Usually, a series of peels are required, staged 1-2 weeks apart, depending on the sensitivity of patient.
Shampooing is a no-brainer activity that most people do not pay much attention to. Usually, a quick wash in the morning is all that people do to keep their hair and scalp clean. But did you know you can end up with dirtier hair than before if you don't wash off the shampoo properly?
Improper washing of hair post-shampooing can lead to the build up of shampoo residue in your hair, which only adds to the dirt you try to clean by shampooing. Also, excessive build-up of product residue causes hair and scalp irritation and even impedes hair growth.
How do you know if you have shampoo residue in your hair? Here's how:
- You hair appears dull, dry and dirty despite being freshly washed
- It feels as though there is a layer of heavy coating on the hair mass
- You hair feels flat as though there has been a loss of volume
- Styling of hair becomes difficult and time-consuming
The signs of shampoo residue build-up closely resemble that of hair damage. In order to prevent it, thorough rinsing is of utmost importance. In fact, rinsing your hair for a minimum of two minutes post-shampoo is strongly advised in order prevent build-up. Also, using a clarifying shampoo regularly clears residue out of the hair and unnecessarily over-applying the product should always be avoided.
Cleanse your hair once a week to keep it fresh and healthy and use a good shampoo with a formula that is suited to your hair.
If you see continual and long-term white patches of depigmentation on your skin, it could be vitiligo. Vitiligo is a condition that appears when melanocytes in your skin are no more alive. This bunch of cells is responsible for producing the melanin pigment that endows the skin with its colour as well as protects it from the harmful UV rays. The area which may be affected by this dermatological disease varies from person to person, and it can also affect the hair, mouth and eyes as well. In most cases, the vitiligo affected area stays discoloured for the rest of the patient’s life.
Various types of vitiligo and their symptoms
Scientists have classified vitiligo into two types: segmental and non-segmental. The non-segmental vitiligo is the most common variant and 90 percent of vitiligo affected patients suffer from this kind of disorder. In this disease, the patches take place with little symmetry on both sides of the body. It can be further broken down into 5 sub-divisions.
- Generalised vitiligo: It can occur at any part of the body without any rules, and this is by far the most common type.
- Acrofacial vitiligo: It is mostly seen on the toes and fingers.
- Mucosal vitiligo: In this condition, the discolouration normally takes place around the lips and mucous membranes.
- Universal vitiligo: This is the rarest type of vitiligo where the whole body is covered in white patches.
- Focal vitiligo: This is most commonly found in children. The children have white and scattered patches across the body.
Possible treatments for vitiligo
Though there are no treatments possible that will re-pigment your skin to its original colour, there are several remedies that aid in decreasing the visibility of white patches on the affected areas of the skin. Some of them include:
- Phototherapy with UVB radiation: This is a common form of treatment where the affected area is exposed to UVB radiation and can be performed at home too. If you have large white spots across the body, it is important to have the treatment performed by an expert at any healthcare centre.
- Phototherapy with UVA radiation: In this treatment, a drug is first administered for increasing skin’s sensitivity to this radiation. Then the affected area of the skin is exposed to high doses of UVA radiation.
- Skin camouflage: In mild cases of vitiligo, cosmetic creams and make-up can be used to camouflage the affected area. It can last for about 12- 18 hours when applied in proper techniques.
In case you are suffering from vitiligo, it is crucial to speak with an expert and opt for the best means to curb down the impact of vitiligo.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
