Transformation RF is a non-surgical advanced fractional microchanneling treatment, delivering the deepest possible subdermal tissue penetration. Using extremely small channels into the skin, in conjunction with fractional radiofrequency, a Transformation RF treatment stimulates collagen production to significantly tighten loose skin and reduce wrinkles and deep lines on the face and body.

Transformation RF utilizes ultrafine needles, along with LED lights emitting radiofrequency waves, to produce thermal energy. The process involves irritating the skin and stimulating its repair response, while encouraging the body’s ability to naturally produce collagen. Each treatment stimulates remodeling in the tissue of the dermis, resulting in tissue thickening and tightening. AnteAge Stem Cell aftercare is included with packages of TransformationRF sessions on the face and neck.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for Transformation RF?

Anyone who is struggling with loose skin, crepey texture, wrinkles, scarring/acne scarring, sun damage/discoloration, stretch marks, and/or enlarged pores (on ANY area of the body) is a great candidate for TransformationRF!

What is Microchanneling in comparison to Microneedling?

Microchanneling can be seen as a more advanced version of microneedling, dry needling, and Collagen Induction Therapy. Microchanneling is an excellent highly evolved type of skin treatment that has been designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen. The two treatments are remarkably similar. The biggest difference between microchanneling and microneedling is the type of device used during treatment.

What is Radio Frequency?

Radiofrequency is a procedure commonly used for the treatment of skin laxity from an increase in tissue temperature. The goal is to induce thermal damage to thus stimulate collagen production in deep layers of the skin and subcutaneous tissue.

What is the downtime with the treatment?

After your TransformationRF treatment, you can expect swelling and redness. This will last about 2 hours, but can last up to 24 hours. For the first 24 hours, do nothing, don’t even touch your face! After 48 hours, you can apply make-up and SPF. Day 3-5 you might experience some flaking, slight dryness, and very faint micro scabs. After 5-7 days, your skin is looking back to normal

What does the treatment feel like and what is the pain level?

You might feel a slight prickling sensation followed by a feeling of warmth as the needles pass through your skin. We apply a topical numbing agent on the face and neck areas 20-30 minutes prior to treatment time to ensure you stay as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Pain level is different from client to client and also varies based on area. The results most definitely outweigh the pain level!

How long does it take to start to see results?

Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to six months after treatment.

Can I just do one single session of Transformation RF?

You absolutely can! A single Transformation RF treatment will achieve noticeable results. However, you may benefit the most from a series of treatments performed over several weeks.

Is there anything before treatment that I need to be doing at home to prepare?

You should try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes sunbathing (natural or artificial). Practitioners are unlikely to treat someone who has sun burn for example, as they would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however an established tan would be fine.

Some women find that their skin is more sensitive right before and during their menstrual cycle so if you are a woman, you might want to take this effect on pain threshold into consideration when scheduling your treatment reservation(s).

What can I prepare to expect post treatment?

Immediately after treatment, you will be red for 1-3 days. However, for more aggressive treatments this may last longer. Slight to moderate swelling and mild to moderate sunburn sensation are also common post treatment and may last up to 24 hours. Skin may crust and peel for 2-7 days depending on treatment aggressiveness. It is not uncommon to have some slight itching during the healing process. Although it is rare, slight bruising can occur.

How long do the results last?

Transformation RF lasts, on average, about three years where you have rejuvenated and lifted skin. After a treatment, the change in the skin is permanent. When you stimulate collagen, you’re kind of rewinding the clock, but keep in mind that aging still continues with each passing year. Lasting results really depend on your aging process.

Is there any maintenance required once my series of treatments are completed?

Your skin will need to be treated every 1 to 2 years to ensure lasting results. On average, clients want to come back in at 12 months for a maintenance treatment. Since collagen and elastin fibers become thinner and looser as we age, your skin will naturally lose elasticity and will become more prone to additional wrinkles and sagging with time. Therefore, annual maintenance treatments are needed to sustain ongoing collagen production.

I have darker skin, will this treatment work for me?

One of the great things about microneedling with radiofrequency is that it is color blind. Unlike with lasers, microneedling with radiofrequency delivers energy in a way that is not chromophore dependent. Therefore, it is safe to use in patients with darker skin types.

How far apart does each session have to be?

You can have a TransformationRF treatment every 6 weeks. It takes 28 days to make new collagen. Your skin will continue to remodel for up to 3 months. However, you can stack treatments as close as 6 weeks apart and the results will compound upon each other.

Which area of my body can I treat?

All areas of your body can be treated with the TransformationRF. The TransformationRF is intended to treat loose skin, crepey texture, wrinkles, scarring/acne scarring, sun damage/discoloration, stretch marks, and/or enlarged pores.

What is the at-home care I receive after my first treatment and how do I use it?

With each 3 session package of Transformation RF (on the face/neck ONLY), you will take home our AnteAGE at home stem cell two step kit. AnteAGE MD System contains twice the Stem Cytokines found in AnteAGE, along with 21 additional ingredients with proven anti-aging, pro-healing and anti- inflammatory benefits. We 100% believe that our amazing results are directly related to our stem cell aftercare. You will use step 1, followed by step 2, twice a day on the face and/or neck. These full size bottles will last you about 3 months.
