What is Three-Dimensional Microneedling technology?
Three-dimensional microneedling technology combines microneedling with high-intensity precision radiofrequency in the treatment of many indications such as signs of skin aging, scars and stretch marks.
Different handpiece applicators can be adapted according to the areas treated and the indications. They are equipped with a multitude of micro-needles that will allow the delivery of radiofrequency energy directly into the skin at established levels and depths.
Thanks to cutting-edge technology, sharpened needles penetrate the skin in a fraction of a second without leaving any traces on the surface. Penetration is facilitated for an exact and precise insertion of the needles at the desired depth and a homogeneous and controlled diffusion of the delivered energy.
In contact with the tissues, the radiofrequency will generate heat by electrothermal reaction and trigger the natural healing process that will induce the production of new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin, thus improving the quality, tone and appearance of the skin.
Who is concerned by the three-dimensional microneedling treatment?
Three-dimensional microneedling technology is indicated in many cases. At the Global Medical Institute in Lausanne, it is used in particular to correct
- Scars, especially acne scars,
- Signs of facial skin aging (wrinkles, loss of tone and volume, in other words non-surgical lifting)
- Deep wrinkles and stretch marks,
- Sagging skin on the stomach, arms, thighs and neck,
- Small amounts of excess fat on the chin, stomach and under the eyes.
But the radiofrequency treatment must be well prepared. Aspects such as general hydration of the area to be treated must be done in advance according to a protocol that will be given to you during your preoperative consultation with Drs. Pietramaggiori and Scherer.
It is important to specify to Drs. Pietramaggiori and Scherer if you are concerned by:
- Allergies (to topical anesthetics, antibiotics, or any other medications),
- A history of herpes,
- Wound healing disorders,
- Cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions.
These are not formal contraindications but special precautions must be taken.
How does the session take place?
The radiofrequency session with three-dimensional microneedling technology begins with a thorough cleaning of the area concerned and the application of local anesthesia.
Drs. Pietramaggiori and Scherer adjust the three-dimensional microneedling device, taking into account gender, age and skin type, the area to be treated and your goals, to determine the intensity of the energy to be delivered, thus ensuring a safe, comfortable and effective treatment.
Pulsed cold air can be used for added comfort.
The treatment is based on a multi-layered approach with several passes of the handpiece to act on the different levels of the skin.
The three-dimensional microneedling has the advantage of informing in real time the quality of each pulse delivered to adapt the gesture and settings and guarantee good results.
At the end of the session, the treated area is disinfected, then soothing and repairing creams are applied. A simple protocol for home use will be given to you.
Drs. Pietramaggiori and Scherer recommend 1 to 3 radiofrequency sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results.
What are the after-effects of the three-dimensional microneedling treatment?
The treated area appears reddened immediately after the treatment, it can remain so for 24 to 48 hours. A slight swelling may occur but apart from that there are no particular side effects.
However, there are a few recommendations to be followed seriously:
- Apply a specific healing cream on the treated area for 2 to 3 weeks,
- Apply a sunscreen 50+ to protect the treated area when going out,
- Do not use any products other than those prescribed by Drs. Pietramaggiori and Scherer,
- Avoid intense sports, excessive heat and sun exposure for 1 to 2 weeks.
What results can I expect?
The three-dimensional microneedling technology allows for a true non-surgical facelift thanks
to a re-tensioning of the skin which regains its tone.
The skin is smoother and of better quality, and the depth of wrinkles and acne scars is reduced.
A thorough pre-procedure consultation will clarify if this technology is suitable for your goals.
