At times there are those stubborn deep-seated scars that seem determined to remain. Based on newly developed cosmetic procedures, Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production with radio frequencies. This is one of the safest scar treatments for dark skin types, where post treatment inflammation easily leads to damaged dermis and increases pigmentation.
The use of radio frequency elements to the earlier microneedling treatment procedures allows for it to be introduced under the skin through the needles, further enhancing skin tightening even as it helps reduce scars. The high frequency energy warms the underlying skin layers and causes it to shrink and tighten, thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. New collagen tightens the skin and scar depth reduces. The strong radiofrequency energy emitted during this procedure enters the skin faster and deeper therefore resulting in dramatic outcomes.
How Does Microneedling RF Work?
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) has been used to rejuvenate the skin for decades. Collagen is the main protein that helps skin look younger with a soft, smooth, and supple texture. Ageing causes the collagen in the skin to sink, causing wrinkles and other signs of ageing. The skin can also lose collagen due to wounds such as acne scars. Devices with fine needles create small holes in the upper layers of the skin that cause the body to produce new collagen and elastin. It may result in improving skin texture, firmness, as well as skin colour.
Microneedle RF adds radio frequency energy elements to conventional microneedle processes. RF energy enters into the dermis through a small needle, which further improves skin tightening and reduces scars. Microneedling RF is a method used by Ambrosia Clinical dermatologists to treat various skin conditions. Microneedling increases collagen production and other healing factors and causes skin trauma. This use of latest technology adaptations to traditional methods of treatment makes us one of the best acne scar treatment clinics in Hyderabad.

Can microneedling be done on other parts of the body apart from the face?
I had lovely laugh lines that made me look attractive when I smiled, or so my friends said. But it worried me that my skin was getting less supple as I grew older. Having read and heard so much about skin tightening treatments, I decided to give it a shot. My first consultation at Ambrosia helped me understand what to expect and how to care for my skin post procedure. Dr. Priti’s thoroughness during the examination was very reassuring too. I thoroughly recommend everyone who is concerned about their skin looking uncared for as they age. Ambrosia totally helped me remind myself that age is only a number. Thank you Dr. Priti for your magic.

My teenage acne had left a lot of scars on my face. That was all I saw when I looked in the mirror. While searching for treatment, I came across Ambrosia and decided to check out what could be done about it. My first impression when I walked in was one of complete ease with the warmth of the staff and the calm atmosphere. The initial consultation helped me understand what can be done to gradually remove the scars on my face as well as what I needed to do post-procedure. I am so happy with the results and go out of my way to mention Ambrosia whenever someone points out how smooth and beautiful my skin looks now. Thank you Ambrosia!

I had broken my nose as a child after a fall. It was misshapen because of that. The twisted nose also led to breathing problems. Searching for solutions, I came across Ambrosia Clinic and the procedures they offer to correct that. I was suggested surgery. I am thankful to the team of plastic surgeons who helped correct my nose as well as the breathing problems. My recovery time was minimal and I am able to lead a normal life since then. A big thank you to the great team at Ambrosia.

I had skin pigmentation on my face. It always made me conscious and I would hide it with layers of makeup. My friend suggested I meet Dr. Priti and do something about it instead of hiding behind makeup. I did not know what to expect, but was totally blown away by her warmth and the modern set up at Ambrosia. She not only explained the procedures I could get done but also what to expect at each stage during recovery. I thoroughly recommend Ambrosia and especially Dr. Priti to everyone.
