Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF)
Microneedling with RF impacts the deeper layer of the skin by creating small micro-lesions that trigger your body’s healings response. The healing response tells your skin to produced increased amounts of collagen to heal your skin. Collagen is a building block of your skin’s structure and an increased amount will help your skin become firmer and lifted. This stimulation creates an impressive correction in your skin’s surface. A few days after this treatment you will notice rejuvenated, smoother skin.

When you arrive for your procedure, your skin will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area for 30 minutes. Once the numbing agent has taken effect and you are comfortable, our advanced esthetician will begin the microneedling treatment. Once the microneedles are pressed into the skin, radiofrequency waves are emitted to penetrate the deeper levels of the dermis. By sending heat waves into the tissues, the treatment will help to restructure your skin. This heat will also work to tighten your skin, helping you have a smoother, firmer surface.
The radiofrequency waves are applied with precision to the predetermined area. The pressing action is repeated until the entire area is treated. Once completed, your skin is cleansed and moisturized.
What to expect during recovery
Strenuous activities, exercise or anything that makes you sweat should be avoided until your skin is healed. After the procedure, your skin may be sensitive, swollen or red. The skin of the treated area can look and feel like it has been sunburned. Symptoms will diminish after two to three days as your skin recovers and rebuilds its structure. You may be provided a moisturizer to use in your initial recovery period. Be sure to mention any skin care products you plan to use because many at-home products may cause irritation or hinder the healing process. During this time, you will need to avoid direct sunlight and in the weeks following the initial healing use a high level of SPF to protect your skin.
What results can I expect after microneedling with RF?
You will see immediate improvements in the appearance of your skin. The treatment has stimulated your collagen levels and, as a result, will be tighter and smoother. After four to six weeks, you will begin to see your newly generated skin level that is more evenly-textured, soft, and luminous than the previous skin layer.
You may need multiple treatments to obtain your skin goal but once achieved these results will be long-lasting. To maintain your results, you will need to stick to healthy skin-care practices, such as exfoliating, moisturizing and wearing sunscreen!
