RF Microneedling

What is RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling combines radiofrequency waves with standard microneedling to enhance skin restoration effects. A microneedling radiofrequency device composed of thin needles is placed over the desired area. The needles emit RF waves, which heat the deep layers of the skin, causing a higher degree of controlled injury to rejuvenate the location in less time than with standard microneedling.

The RF waves bypass the skin's most superficial and sensitive layer, the epidermis. Exposure to this high-intensity energy accelerates the self-healing process and induces more collagen growth. Patients can expect minimal discomfort during the procedure, a short downtime, and long-lasting results in approximately three to six treatments (depending on the severity of the condition being treated).

What are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling offers many benefits for the skin and can be used for face and body. Many of these come from the improved production of collagen created by this dual treatment. 

  • Smoother, firmer skin
  • More even skin tone with decreased hyperpigmentation
  • Brighter, more youthful looking skin
  • Smaller, tighter pores
  • Reduced visibility of acne scarring and other scars
  • Reduce the look of stretchmarks
  • Improved skin texture
  • Improve elasticity in skin

Many of these improvements come from the production of collagen, so the combination of microneedling and RF energy combine to produce better results than either one alone. 

How Long Will It Take to See Results?

Most people need three to six treatments to see their best results. You will start to see results after a few weeks, with maximum results appearing after three to six months. The development of new collagen takes time, so results do not appear immediately, but because they use your body’s own collagen, they can last up to a year or more. We recommend yearly maintenance treatments to keep your results looking as good as possible. 

Is There Any Downtime for RF Microneedling?

You will have minimal downtime and can return to your activities almost immediately. Make sure to wear sun protection and avoid the sun while your skin heals and maintain a consistent sun protection routine since UV damage will diminish your results. Avoid harsh cleansers or products for a few days. 

Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

Most people can receive RF microneedling. Good candidates have mild to moderate signs of aging and reasonable expectations about treatment results. You may not be a good candidate if you are pregnant, have a skin infection, active acne, or have recently taken certain acne medications.
