When Can I Have RF Microneedling After Bellafill?

Eliminating different signs of aging isn’t easy – you need to try tons of beauty products and treatments to find one that works for you. Sometimes, it even takes two different types of procedures to restore wrinkle-free skin. For those who tried Bellafill to smooth wrinkles, RF microneedling can make the results of their treatment even better.

So when should patients have their RF microneedling treatment after getting Bellafill? It’s crucial for patients to need to wait for 2 to 4 weeks after the Bellafill treatment first before their RF microneedling procedure. Doing this allows the dermal filler to fully settle in the treated areas, lowering the risk of severe side effects and complications.

Getting RF Microneedling Treatments After Bellafill

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular skin treatments that erase wrinkles, fine lines, and even atrophic acne scars. But sometimes, these filler injections aren’t enough to solve multiple skin problems at once. In many situations, dermatologists recommend pairing fillers like Bellafill with other non-surgical treatments like RF microneedling to achieve excellent results.

But still, many patients are afraid that getting one treatment after the other might lead to negative consequences. Both treatments won’t affect the other, but providers still advise waiting about 2 to 4 weeks for the filler to stay in the treated areas before trying any other treatment.

Are There Negative Effects When You Get RF Microneedling After Bellafill?

Both Bellafill and radiofrequency microneedling are effective minimally invasive treatments that can be combined without worrying about serious complications or side effects. But just to be safe, it’s recommended to receive your RF microneedling treatment about 2 to 4 weeks after the Bellafill appointment to let the injectable filler settle underneath the skin.

Unlike what most people think, the heat from the radiofrequency microneedling device won’t dissolve the Bellafill injection. But in some rare cases, the pressure applied on the skin as the device glides across its surface might cause the filler to migrate to other areas and lead to serious complications. To avoid this, most aestheticians advise waiting until the dermal fillers fully settle before trying any kind of combined or additional skin treatment.

Erasing Wrinkles and Deep Nasolabial Folds With Bellafill

Bellafill collagen gel is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler that restores lost facial volume. It’s made of bovine collagen and polymethylmethacrylate microspheres that smooth smile lines and facial wrinkles, replenish volume under atrophic scars, and tighten loose skin. The PMMA microspheres also boost collagen production for immediate volume restoration and long-lasting results.

Many patients prefer Bellafill’s collagen gel over HA filler injections and other types of dermal filler because it takes about 5 years to be fully absorbed by the body, which is much longer than the few months of wrinkle-free skin that other fillers promise. According to the clinical study by its maker, Bellafill results have an 87% satisfactory rate even after 5 years.

Adding RF Microneedling to the Treatment Plan

Radiofrequency microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that works on a wide range of skin problems, including acne scarring, fine lines, sagging skin, and more. It uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, increasing natural collagen and elastin production. The needles also deliver radiofrequency waves to the skin tissues to enhance the effects of traditional microneedling.

When performed after a Bellafill treatment, RF microneedling enhances its anti-aging effects by stimulating collagen production. Combining these two treatments is a great option for patients who want smooth skin free of wrinkles and blemishes but aren’t ready for facial plastic surgery like a chin implant or facelift yet.

How Long Should You Wait Between Each Treatment

Both RF microneedling and Bellafill treatments require multiple treatment sessions to help patients achieve and maintain the best results. Here’s how often each treatment should be scheduled:

  • Between Bellafill treatments alone: Bellafill lasts longer than hyaluronic acid fillers and other types of dermal fillers on the market, so patients only need to take Bellafill injections every 5 years or so.
  • Between RF microneedling procedures alone: The recommended frequency for RF microneedling varies per patient, depending on their age and aesthetic concerns. However, most of them return to their provider every 4 to 6 weeks for follow-up treatments.
  • Between Bellafill and RF microneedling treatments: Patients need to wait about 2 to 4 weeks for the Bellafill injection to settle before getting their RF microneedling treatment. 

Why You Should Try Both Skin Treatments

When dealing with different skin concerns like acne scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and loose skin, the dermatologist or beauty expert might find that a single treatment isn’t enough to correct the problem. Combining different cosmetic procedures might sound scary, but it actually has more benefits than undergoing multiple sessions of the same treatment.

Here are a few reasons that will convince you to try combining treatments like Bellafill and RF microneedling:

1) Improved Skin Rejuvenation Results

Some treatments work better together because they target different skin concerns without affecting each other. A dermal filler treatment erases a wrinkle or acne scar, but RF microneedling works best for skin tightening. Receiving both procedures means looking at the bigger picture and finding complementary treatments that improve your skin condition quickly.

2) Both Are Minimally Invasive

Many patients are skeptical to try RF microneedling after their Bellafill treatments because they’re afraid of the possible complications and side effects. However, both of them are minimally invasive procedures that won’t negatively affect the other. They can even produce excellent skin rejuvenation results that are almost as good as laser skin resurfacing or cosmetic surgery.

3) More Cost-Effective in the Long Run

Bellafill treatments require maintenance treatments every few years while RF microneedling should be performed every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain the best results, causing the costs to pile up quickly. But since combined treatments lead to quick and long-lasting results, patients only need to undergo fewer treatment sessions for each procedure, helping them save more money in the long run.
