Microneedling, when combined with RF (radiofrequency) energy, can significantly improve skin quality. This non-invasive, non-surgical skin treatment enhances the collagen-inducing result of microneedling. The increase in collagen in the skin structure leads to firmer, more resilient skin, with results that last.
RF Microneedling: Skin rejuvenation without surgery.
The results of a series of RF microneedling treatments may be necessary to achieve the maximum improvement in skin quality. Over time, your skin can lose its firm, resilient quality, with fine lines and wrinkles appearing. This is the result of the reduced natural production of collagen and elastin, and exposure to UV rays.
Collagen and elastin fibers create the underlying scaffolding of the skin. RF microneedling stimulates a natural increase in collagen and elastin production, far beyond the results of microneedling alone. The treatment tightens skin by stimulating a wound-healing response deeper in the skin layers.
What is RF microneedling like to experience?
The procedure takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. For the most dramatic improvement in skin quality and firmness, a series of three or four treatments could be advised. A skin-numbing cream will be applied for your comfort, and then the device is moved across your facial skin, with several passes in areas that require more attention, where wrinkles, lines, and lax skin appear. The needles create micro-injuries while emitting RF energy into the dermis. The sensation is warm, and you will feel the needles entering your skin, but the treatment is reasonably easy to experience.
What can RF microneedling do for my skin?
RF microneedling can work wonders on the following skin issues:
- Lax, aging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars and trauma scars
- Stretch marks
- Lax neck skin
- Droopy eyelids
- Saggy upper arm skin

How long does it take to see results?
The results of RF microneedling will begin to appear in a few weeks after your first treatment. Your body takes some time to produce new collagen. A series of treatments will build on the initial results, leaving your skin looking and feeling firm, soft, and supple.
What is the recovery time?
You will need a few days for your skin to settle down after the treatment. Initially, your skin will appear red, as if sunburned, which fades in about three days. Do not apply makeup until the tiny injuries heal, usually in one day. Our skincare experts can advise you about the type of moisturizer to apply to speed healing. You may experience minor skin peeling and swelling. Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized with the right products will help.
Aftercare – the do’s and don’ts
Ensure you protect your skin with sunscreen if you plan to be out of doors, as your skin will be exceptionally sensitive to UV rays. Always wash your hands before touching your face, and do not apply makeup for 24 hours. Ensure all makeup brushes are clean before applying cosmetics. You must avoid spending time in a sauna, swimming pool, or in excessive heat for at least three days. Do not use any vitamin C or retinol products after your RF microneedling procedure and use only the gentlest of facial cleansers during healing.
