What is RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling is a procedure that uses an electrical device to create tiny wounds on the surface of the skin, which stimulates new collagen production. During the procedure, the microneedles emit radiofrequency (RF) energy that encourages even more collagen synthesis and deeper restoration.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure where small needles are used to create microscopic channels in the skin while emitting RF energy into the tissue. This creates an increase in blood flow and oxygen which stimulates collagen production, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving the elasticity of the skin. 

It also boosts the natural production of growth factors required for tissue regeneration. RF microneedling can be used for a variety of skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, atrophic scarring, and psoriasis.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

RF Microneedling causes controlled damage to the skin with microneedles that create tiny channels in the skin. The RF energy creates a further disruption of the tissue. This disruption causes the body to flood the area with healing factors. 

The skin immediately begins to repair the damage with new collagen, creating fuller, tighter skin that looks more lifted and energized. RF energy will only damage the small area of targeted tissue, so this procedure is very safe and widely used to address acne scars, lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin texture.

The RF Microneedling process typically takes about an hour to complete. The first step is to clean the skin with an antiseptic to help prevent infection. Next, numbing cream is applied in order to reduce any discomfort from the treatment.

The treatment is then carried out by a trained professional who uses an electric device to create channels in the skin with tiny needles that penetrate just below the surface, without breaking or damaging it. The treatment is not painful, and patients report feeling a sensation similar to snapping the skin with a rubber band.

What Results Can I Expect From RF Microneedling?

After RF microneedling treatment, the skin regenerates into smoother, more resilient, younger-looking skin. Scarring, uneven skin texture, hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles, and the appearance of enlarged pores will all improve or resolve with treatment. 

The procedure should take about 30-45 minutes, with a bit of extra time for the numbing treatment to take effect. You can expect to see results after three to six months of treatment as the body rebuilds its new collagen structure. We recommend at least three sessions, each several weeks apart, for the best results, followed by yearly maintenance treatments to maintain your amazing skin-illuminating results.

Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
