Radiofrequency Microneedling: How Celebrities Like Jennifer Aniston Keep Their Skin Looking Young

The quest for Hollywood perfection has been around since the earliest days of Tinseltown. If it’s possible, who wouldn’t want to look like a movie star? On-screen beauty comes with a cost, though.

Surgical procedures aren’t cheap, and you need months off from work to recover from some procedures. That’s one thing if your next movie doesn’t start shooting until later in the year, but for most people, schedules simply aren’t that flexible.

So when a procedure comes along that’s both effective and features fast recovery, as well as being endorsed by some of the most attractive faces in the entertainment industry, you take notice.

Microneedling is a current hot topic in skin rejuvenation, and the Vitality Institute of Agoura offers Cutera®’s Secret™ RF, a radiofrequency enhanced microneedling treatment.

How microneedling works

Your body already has incredible rejuvenating powers, capable of repairing a wide range of body tissue, including the skin of your face, which often disproportionately suffers the effects of aging.

The problem with your body’s healing systems, however, is that it often takes a substantial injury to set rejuvenation in motion. There’s no automatic way to enjoy the benefits of biologically new tissue without some way to kickstart your body’s healing response.

Microneedling is a way to produce a controlled level of minor damage, enough so that your body starts its repair efforts, but not so much that you need days or weeks to recover.

Collagen induction therapy

Another name for the microneedling procedure is collagen induction therapy, and this starts to describe what happens after a microneedling session. Your skin loses both moisture and tissue volume as you get older, and these are two functions of the collagen layer in the middle of your “skin sandwich.”

The tiny, fine needles used for microneedling do minimal damage to your outer skin, but probe deep enough to pierce the collagen-elastin matrix, a protein layer that stores moisture and supports your outer skin.

After a microneedling treatment, your body recognizes that the collagen matrix is disrupted and so it simultaneously gives messages to get that old collagen out of there, while making new collagen to replace it. This is a gentle and gradual process.

Disrupted collagen flushes out via the lymphatic system and new collagen takes its place. Unlike, for instance, a knife cut, there’s no focus to the tissue damage, so new collagen settles into a matrix that’s similar to the pre-treatment tissue. There’s no scarring due to localized damage.

The Secret RF advantage

Adding radiofrequency energy to microneedling offers a way to penetrate deeper into the middle skin layer without additionally damaging surface skin. This produces more dramatic results by effectively treating more collagen tissue in a single treatment.

Secret RF is even customizable for your skin conditions. Every patient has their own skin type and result expectations. Adding Secret RF to traditional microneedling permits a better match between the procedure and your skin.

Secret RF offers effective improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, skin discoloration from sun damage, previous scarring such as that associated with acne, and a host of other irregularities in the uniformity of your skin.
