You can’t escape the specter of aging skin, but you can fight it! For most of us, these changes first show up as fine lines that aren’t super noticeable. When we rub our eyes and notice how thin and loose the skin feels is when a lot of us start to notice we’re aging. If loose skin has caught up with you, Blush Aesthetics has the tools to tighten skin with RF microneedling in Toledo.
With options including the Lutronic Genius® and Lumenis Legend Pro™, we have the best technologies available to improve loose or sagging skin and leave you with a youthful glow. RF microneedling treats any area of the body where you’re experiencing changes in your skin’s texture.
A quick RF microneedling overview
Traditional microneedling in Toledo uses a special tool fitted with needles (don’t worry, each little needle is thinner than a piece of human hair!) to create controlled punctures on the surface of the skin on the face, neck, and chest. To be clear, you’re not going to feel like you’ve got a bunch of holes in your skin! The punctures are microscopic in size, just big enough to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes.
An advanced version of microneedling, RF microneedling takes this tried-and-true procedure and adds the benefit of radiofrequency energy for effective skin tightening in Toledo. RF microneedling is FDA-cleared and scientifically proven as safe and effective. It produces both immediate and progressive results without the need for a lot of social downtime.
Microneedling is also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) because it effectively stimulates the production of new collagen.
Why is collagen important?
Aesthetic facilities like ours use a variety of technologies and techniques intended to stimulate production of new collagen. Collagen is responsible for many biological functions in mammals, but we love it because it provides the structural support for connective tissues, muscles, and skin. To put it simply? Collagen makes skin strong, supple, and youthful 💗

How is RF microneedling different from microneedling?
The heat produced by radiofrequency energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin far more effectively than microneedling alone. It takes the efficacy of the original procedure and boosts it, making it one of our favorite treatments!
RF MICRONEEDLING TREATS A VARIETY OF SKIN ISSUES
With RF microneedling in Toledo, we achieve better results for a wide array of skin concerns. You will be thrilled with the total rejuvenation of your skin after treatment with one of our RF microneedling devices. Acne scars, loose skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other common skin issues are no match for Lutronic Genius and Lumenis Legend Pro!
RF MICRONEEDLING TARGETS DEEPER LAYERS OF SKIN
The skin is separated into three basic layers: epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. These layers, and how they factor into your skin’s outward appearance, are important factors to consider when you’re undergoing any kind of skin treatment.
The outermost layer, the epidermis, is what traditional microneedling reaches. Microneedling with added radiofrequency energy, on the other hand, delivers heat energy deep into the dermis layer for the most effective collagen and elastin stimulation.
RF MICRONEEDLING IS CUSTOMIZABLE
The aesthetic experts at Blush Aesthetics customize RF microneedling treatments to each patient’s skin. We adjust the puncture depth and level of RF energy used based on your unique skin needs and goals. We are also the best in the area at treating your active acne breakouts!

What happens to my skin after RF microneedling in Toledo?
Following your RF microneedling procedure, you could experience some swelling, bruising, and redness. Generally, side effects are mild enough that patients can get back to their day immediately!
You’ll want to avoid wearing makeup, using abrasive skin products, or submerging in pools for around 72 hours following the session. Activities like this could expose your skin to harsh chemicals and bacteria, which may cause adverse reactions as your skin recovers from the treatment.
You also need to intentionally avoid sun exposure or use strong protective measures when going outside. Wear at least SPF 30 on your skin whenever you are going to be exposed to sunlight (yes, even through a window). Your skin is extra sensitive to sunlight after treatments with RF microneedling in Toledo.
We will walk you through each and every detail of the aftercare for your RF microneedling treatment. That includes recommendations for skincare products and detailed instructions on best practices for washing your skin, applying sunscreen, using makeup, and more. Our goal is to make your aesthetic dreams come true AND to educate you on all things skincare so you can maintain the incredible results from the treatments we offer.
When to expect results after RF microneedling
While the exact time frame of your results from microneedling with radiofrequency will vary, most patients do notice some effects within the first few weeks. The healing process is progressive, so with time after your series of three treatments, your results will begin to compound. Generally, you can expect to see final results after 3 to 6 months. Those results tend to last about a year, so we usually recommend yearly maintenance appointments for upkeep.
