RF Microneedling

RF microneedling, also known as radiofrequency microneedling, is a cosmetic dermatology procedure that combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. This treatment is designed to address various skin concerns and promote skin tightening and rejuvenation. Here's an overview of RF microneedling:

Mechanism of Action

  • Microneedling: Induces controlled micro-injuries, stimulating the skin's natural healing response and collagen production.
  • RF Energy: Heats the deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen remodeling and skin tightening.


  • Skin Rejuvenation: Improves skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.
  • Collagen Production: Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, promoting skin firmness.
  • Wrinkle Reduction: Helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Scar Improvement: May reduce the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars and other types of scars.
  • Skin Tightening: Addresses sagging or lax skin.

Conditions Treated

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Especially around the eyes, mouth, forehead, entire face and neck. 
  • Acne Scars: Can improve the texture of the skin.
  • Skin Laxity: Tightens loose or sagging skin.
  • Enlarged Pores: May help reduce the size of pores.

Recovery and Downtime

  • Redness and Swelling: Some redness and swelling are common immediately after the procedure.
  • Downtime: Minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures.
  • Sun Protection: Sunscreen and sun protection are usually recommended during the recovery period.

Post-Treatment Care

  • Gentle Skincare: Using mild skincare products recommended by the provider.
  • Avoiding Sun Exposure: Protecting the skin from excessive sun exposure and daily sunscreen usage is very important.
