What is Radiofrequency (RF) Micro-needling

Radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling is a gentle cosmetic treatment that merges micro-needling with radiofrequency energy to revitalize the skin. This procedure utilizes a device with small needles that puncture the skin, simultaneously delivering heat energy into deeper skin layers. The aim is to trigger collagen and elastin production, leading to firmer, smoother, and visibly rejuvenated skin.

Benefits of RF Micro-needling

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving skin texture and tone
  • Reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks
  • Tightening sagging skin
  • Reducing the size of pores

How does Micro-needling works

Micro-needling, known as collagen induction therapy, is highly effective for stimulating cellular turnover and renewal. This treatment involves creating micro-injuries on the skin, prompting the body’s natural healing process. As the skin heals, it undergoes a rejuvenating response known as cell remodeling, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin without the need for surgery or scarring. When combined with radio-frequency technology, micro-needling enhances skin tightening and provides enduring results.

What to expect

Throughout the procedure, the device is passed over the skin, creating minute punctures through which radiofrequency energy is delivered. This energy heats the deeper skin layers, inducing a controlled injury that activates the body’s innate healing process. This response stimulates the production of fresh collagen and elastin, enhancing the skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity.

Side Effects

The treatment carries minimal risk, but patients should expect some downtime during the healing process. Common effects include temporary redness, dryness, and minor changes in skin texture within the initial 3–5 days post-treatment. These effects signify your skin’s renewal phase and are followed by a brighter, clearer, and healthier appearance. Following our post-care guidelines is crucial to optimize the outcomes of your treatment.

After Care

After the treatment, patients can expect some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. However, these side effects usually resolve within a few days. Patients should avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen after the treatment to protect their skin.

RF Micro-needling is not suitable for those who have the following

Active acne or skin infections
A history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring
Blood clotting disorders
A pacemaker or defibrillator
Pregnancy or breastfeeding

FAQs

WHAT IS RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and other imperfections.

HOW DOES RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING WORK?

Radiofrequency microneedling works by creating tiny channels in the skin using ultrafine needles and then delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis. This stimulates collagen production and triggers the body’s natural healing response, resulting in smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

IS RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING PAINFUL?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a relatively comfortable procedure. A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. During the treatment, patients may feel a mild heating or tingling sensation, but this is generally well-tolerated.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

The number of sessions needed for optimal results can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and goals. Typically, a series of three to six sessions spaced four to six weeks apart is recommended.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AFTER RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING?

There is little to no downtime after radiofrequency microneedling. Patients may experience some redness, swelling, and minor bruising, but these side effects usually subside within a few days.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING?

Results from radiofrequency microneedling can be seen within a few weeks of treatment and continue to improve over time as collagen production increases. Patients can expect to see significant improvements in skin texture, tone, and firmness, as well as a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
