Radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines micro-needling with radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the skin. It involves using a device containing tiny needles puncturing the skin and delivering heat energy into the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This results in tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
What is Radiofrequency (RF) Micro-needling
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 is collagen induction therapy, it’s the best treatment for promoting cellular turnover and renewal. By creating micro-injuries on the skin, the body naturally triggers the healing ability of the skin. When healed, micro-needling results in a healing response called cell re-modelling, which creates smoother, younger-looking skin with no need for surgery or scarring. When combined with radio-frequency technology, this treatment tightens the skin and long lasting results.
What to expect
During the treatment, the device is moved over the skin, creating tiny punctures that deliver radiofrequency energy. The energy heats up the deep layers of the skin, causing a controlled injury that triggers the body’s natural healing response. The body responds by producing new collagen and elastin, which helps to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and firmness.
There is little to no risk in performing this treatment. However, patients will experience a downtime when the skin is healing. Patients may experience redness, dryness, skin textural concerns within the first 3–5 days after the treatment. Rest assured that your skin will look brighter, clearer, and healthier after the downtime. We highly recommend following our post-care recommendations to maximize the results of your treatment.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
