Microneedling RF

Microneedling RF Before & Afters

About Microneedling RF

About Microneedling RF
Microneedling RF (radiofrequency) is a cosmetic treatment that uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate facial skin. Treatment creates micro injuries, stimulating the growth of healthy new skin and addressing common skin issues like acne scars and wrinkles. Compared with treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, radiofrequency microneedling is minimally invasive.

Uses of Microneedling RF

Acne scars

Appearance of large pores

Fine lines and wrinkles

Stretch marks

Loose, sagging skin



How it Works

Woman undergoing microneedling RF

During treatment, the skin care specialist uses a fine needle to create micro wounds, or channels, in the skin. These wounds trigger the production of elastin, capillaries, and collagen. Microneedling may also be referred to as skin needling or collagen induction therapy.

In microneedling RF, the needle sends radiofrequency into the skin, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of treatment, leading to skin that grows back thick and smooth. 

Ideal Candidates


Candidates for microneedling RF should be in good health.

Aesthetic Goals

You should have early signs of aging that you want to correct.


Your expectations need to be realistic and discussed with your provider.

What to Expect

The skin care specialist will use alcohol to clean the skin to prevent infection.
Next, they will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. In some cases, a client might receive an injection of a local anesthetic.
The microneedling device will then be used to make tiny wounds in the skin. Simultaneously, the tip of the needle will release radiofrequency waves into the wounds.
The treatment will take between 10 to 20 minutes. The exact duration will depend on the size of the treatment area.
Near the end of treatment, the skin care specialist will apply a growth solution to support cell regeneration.
In the final step, they will apply a soothing solution to minimize any discomfort.
