What Can RF Microneedling Treat?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling has been demonstrated to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, improving concerns like lines and wrinkles, loose skin, uneven skin tone or texture, and dullness. Adding RF energy to the microneedling process boosts collagen production into overdrive, resulting in even more dramatic results.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

Microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin using small needles. This micro-damage causes the skin around the area to produce signals that bring healing and growth factors to the site. Not only does this speed healing time, but it also triggers the production of collagen, essential to firming and tightening loose skin. 

The addition of RF energy allows the treatment to work on the surrounding skin by triggering it to respond with increased collagen production. This new collagen production leads to skin that looks firmer and more resilient. Because the microneedling allows the RF energy to work at a deeper level, collagen remodeling can occur deeper in the skin, leading to more satisfying results.

What Can RF Microneedling Treat?

The number of conditions treated by RF microneedling continues to make it one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments. It can treat conditions including:

Skin Laxity

RF microneedling uses collagen stimulation to firm and provide lift to loose or sagging skin. Collagen production offers the most powerful non-surgical skin resurfacing and tightening. 

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Because RF microneedling rejuvenates the surface of the skin and triggers collagen rebuilding from deeper layers, lines and wrinkles will appear lifted and less visible

Skin Rejuvenation

RF Microneedling rejuvenates the skin by increasing cell turnover and bringing brighter, more youthful cells to the surface, giving the skin a luminous glow. 

Acne and Other Scars

RF Microneedling can treat acne scarring and other types of scars by boosting cell turnover, helping to remove the skin that carries the scars and replace it with brighter, healthier skin. 


Increased cell turnover helps the skin shed signs of hyperpigmentation and sun damage, leaving skin looking clearer and more even

How Long Does RF Microneedling Last?

Results of RF microneedling usually take about three sessions to develop completely. Results start to appear after about six weeks and will continue to get better as time goes on. Once treatment has finished, the results last about a year

Is There Any Downtime After RF Microneedling?

Your skin may feel sensitive for a day or two. You should not apply makeup for 24 hours, and you should wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Sunscreen remains very important after the initial healing and protects the skin from sun damage that could undo your results.
