Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a relatively new, non-invasive, aesthetic procedure that is used to rejuvenate the skin. The procedure has become one of our most popular treatments for people of all ages, surpassing traditional microneedling. The process of RF microneedling rejuvenates the skin by harnessing the body’s healing powers in a natural manner makes it an appealing treatment for all skin types.
As we age our skin changes in tightness and texture. RF microneedling is being sought after by individuals struggling with acne scars, young moms who are looking for ways to make their stretch marks less noticeable and by men and women looking for overall skin rejuvenation. Find out if RF microneedling can help you.
What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling is a device that uses specially insulated needles that deliver high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted tissue once the needles have broken through the skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response to produce new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. The collagen-rich tissue that results from treatment of the affected area promotes wrinkle-reduction, skin tightening and other highly desirable benefits. The combination of both RF with microneedling in a single treatment gives maximum natural-looking results.
What Conditions Does RF Microneedling Treat?
The most common treatment areas for RF microneedling are the face, neck, chest, abdomen, and knees. RF microneedling treats a variety of conditions, including:
- Sun damage
- Skin laxity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Acne and acne scars
- Scars from injury or surgery
- Stretch marks
- Irregular skin tone and texture
RF Microneedling Benefits?
RF microneedling is a procedure that treats wrinkles, scarring and other skin conditions. The procedure only takes 30 minutes and requires little or no downtime. While there may be some minor redness or swelling, the treatment area should be back to normal within 24 hours and ready for make-up or other topical applications. Most patients see noticeable results after just one treatment, but they will usually see maximum benefits with three consecutive treatments scheduled at four-week intervals.
RF microneedling is safe for all skin types because it causes virtually no thermal epidermal damage. Patients with darker skin tones are at less risk of post-procedure inflammatory hyperpigmentation than they might experience with other procedures, such as laser treatments. Our medical team will customize a treatment plan based on the tone, texture, and laxity of your skin.

Does RF Microneedling Hurt?
Prior to your treatment our medical practitioner will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin for roughly 30 minutes. This will minimize any discomfort during your treatment. Most patients describe the treatment as painless. Some report an occasional mild, heating sensation or a fleeting zap as the microneedles are passed quickly over the skin.
Following the RF microneedling treatment your skin will be red and slightly tender. Some describe it as a mild sunburn. This usually lasts for about 24-48 hours. You may also have tiny pinprick marks on the skin that will usually crust and flake off in several days. Many of our patients return to work or resume social activities after one day.

When Can Results Be Expected?
Depending on your skin condition the length of time it takes to see results may vary. For example, if we are treating moderate acne scarring you will need about four-six treatments to see results. For scarring of greater magnitude, you may need up to eight sessions.
For facial rejuvenation, results may be achieved in as little as one treatment. However, for the most optimal results, we recommend a series of 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Visible results from RF microneedling can be seen within a few days. Some patients will even see immediate improvement because the skin tightens during the treatment. Improvements in the skin will continue up to 3 months following the treatment. The results you get from RF microneedling are permanent; however, you skin will continue to age from its new point of improvement. To maintain your desired results, you should have a touch-up every year.
