RF Microneedling

When it comes to non-surgical anti-aging trends, two of the most popular procedures on everyone’s to-do list are microneedling and radiofrequency (RF). Both provide stellar results individually and stimulate collagen production to tighten the skin and improve its texture and tone, but together the results are even better.

Now, treatments that combine RF energy with microneedling, known as RF microneedling, are the secret to achieving flawless skin.

Together, the dual-approach technology creates micro-injuries in the skin while heating it at the same time to create a lit-from-within glow and firm, tight skin. Here’s everything you need to know if you consider RF microneedling.

What is
RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a dual-prong approach to improving the skin.

Together, the two  components create new collagen. Several iterations of the treatment have existed, and they’ve evolved and only gotten better with time.

Microneedling works by safely and gently piercing the skin with sterile needles, which simultaneously deliver radiofrequency energy. The heat from the RF energy creates a micro-injury that signals the body to ‘turn on’ its natural healing responses. As the skin begins to heal itself, it becomes thicker, firmer, and younger-looking.

What are the benefits?

How is RF Microneedling different from other similar treatments?

RF microneedling is a highly desirable treatment because there’s virtually no downtime or recovery, and it is safe to use on almost all skin tones.

Unlike a laser, this treatment provides completely different results. For example, a laser emits a single wavelength of light that the skin absorbs using targets, and heat destroys them. Instead, the treatment injures the skin with a mechanical device while heating the skin to prompt a wound-healing response.

Your provider may recommend additional treatments like chemical peels, lasers, or PRP to maximize the results.

Common FAQs

Post RF microneedling care is essential. The channels in the skin are open, so you’ll want to avoid using anything strong on the skin, like acids and retinoids. Instead, stick to a bland, gentle skincare routine, a good hydrator, and sunscreen.

Yes, RF microneedling is good for acne scars. Acne scars result from a combination of skin and collagen damage and hyperpigmentation. Both of these issues are addressed with RF microneedling.

The treatment can be uncomfortable, so numbing cream is applied before starting the procedure. Most patients find topical numbing cream makes the treatment more tolerable. Afterward, your skin may feel warm and pink, which will subside in the next two days.

RF microneedling is generally well tolerated. However, some potential minor side effects can arise, including:

  • Redness or a flush to the skin
  • Dryness
  • Minor breakouts
  • Flaky patches
  • Minimal scabbing
  • Itchiness
