RF Microneedling

What is Microneedling?


In Radiofrequency microneedling, the radio frequency (RF) energy is added to the traditional microneedling. It delivers even better results. The radiofrequency energy used in this procedure is gentle.

The radiofrequency energy is used to target the deeper layers to the skin via a specialized device. This device is also fitted with tiny needles. But along with puncturing it also delivers a short pulse of radiofrequency energy. This pulse of energy creats bloodles open pore to allow the serums and booster to rapidly pentate into your skin unlike traditational microneedling. The heat produced due to radiofrequency energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. It results in in more effective and enhanced tightening of the skin. So, RF microneedling is much better than the traditional microneedling.

The best thing about RF microneedling is that the recovery time is very short. You can resume your daily activities or go back to work after a few hours. Redness might occur but it goes away in 24 to 48 hours.

With medical RF microneedling, we also offer many medical grade booster not available in other spas. One of the favorite add-on procedure is PRP (platelet rich plasma) whereby your own blood is drawn, purified with a centrifuge and applied to your skin right after the therapy.

Am I a candidate?

Skin type is not an issue for this procedure. Because it’s minimally invasive and doesn’t cause significant wounding of skin, virtually anybody can safely undergo microneedling therapy. Even those with thin skin can undergo treatments since RF microneedling adds the the volume of the skin by activating collagen and elastin. 

What are the benefits of RF microneedling?

RF Microneedling helps reduce the sign of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars, and rejuvenate aging skin. In one study of 60 patients with acne scarring, three microneedling treatments resulted in a 31 percent improvement in skin texture, with no discoloration of the skin. Microneedling was effective for all skin types.

We treat many areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

How do I prepare for the treatment?

Chemical peels, Retin-A, or other exfoliating creams must not be used prior to your visit. During your initial consultation—always complimentary—we will go over your skin care regime and answer any questions you may have.

What happens during treatment?

Thought treatment is relatively painless, we typically start by applying a topical aesthetic anesthetic cream twenty to thirty minutes before the procedure. This allows for a comfortable experience for most people. Generally, patients report feeling just the slight vibration of the device during the procedure. In one study of microneedling used to treat acne scars, the patients’ average pain rating was only 1.08 out of 10. The total treatment time depends on which part of your body we are treating. For the face, a typical appointment takes about an hour.

Is post-treatment care needed, and is here any downtime?

It is important to keep your skin hydrated after any treatment while the skin resurfaces with new growth. Moisturizers with anti-inflammatory ingredients following the treatment will soothe the area and calm any redness. Exfoliators and alcohol-based toners should not be used until your skin has healed. Always use a good sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, but especially after this type of procedure. The total healing time depends on each individual. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild to moderate sunburn) for two to four days following the microneedling procedure.
