Enhances skin tightness and firmness: By heating the deeper layers of the skin, the radiofrequency energy delivered by the RF microneedling device can aid in improving skin tightness and firmness in the treated area. This can aid in lessening the visibility of stretch marks and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
