Microneedling revolutionized the skin care industry when it hit the market.
This non-invasive, revitalizing procedure is one of the most popular clinical skincare treatments for a reason – it works. And if you haven't heard, there's a new (and improved) treatment in town that delivers next-level results.
With no cuts or incisions, Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling effectively tightens, lifts, and smooths the skin with minimal downtime. In contrast to many other skin rejuvenation techniques, RF Microneedling is safe for use on all skin types and skin tones.
Want to learn more about this groundbreaking, anti-aging procedure? Keep reading to discover why everyone is turning to RF Microneedling.
What is RF Microneedling?
First, let's define the two components of RF Microneedling, individually.
Microneedling utilizes tiny, sterile needles to painlessly puncture various depths of the skin to break up pigment, repair elastin fibers and increase collagen production by creating micro-injuries to trigger the body's natural healing process.
Not only is Microneedling safe for all skin types, but the treatment is clinically proven to stimulate cell renewal and promote collagen and elastin production.
Microneedling is well-known for its ability to diminish acne scars, improve uneven skin texture, lighten sunspots, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and lift and tighten the skin.
Radiofrequency (RF) treatments heat the dermis layer of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. RF treatments can effectively improve your skin tone, minimize the signs of aging, and tighten loose skin.
Alone, Microneedling and RF treatments are beneficial in producing new collagen and elastin, which improve skin tone, texture, and firmness.
But when combined and performed simultaneously, the synergistic effects of RF Microneedling will deliver more dramatic results in fewer treatments than traditional Microneedling.
What is RF Microneedling?
RF Microneedling uses tiny, sterile, "energized" needles to create micro-injuries in the skin while simultaneously delivering high-intensity radio frequency energy into these punctures. This stimulates collagen and elastin production and improves the tone and texture of the skin.
The results? Tighter, firmer, smoother skin over a series of 3 - 4 sessions.
RF Microneedling has been clinically proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production more than traditional Microneedling, and to restore skin with new, healthy tissue..
Benefits of RF Microneedling
RF Microneedling is second to none when it comes to dramatically improving skin laxity on the face, neck, and body, deep acne scarring, pigmentation, cellulite, stretch marks, and more.
Essentially, RF Microneedling can benefit nearly everyone.
RF Microneedling utilizes two different needle lengths, making this treatment customizable for the face or body.
The addition of radio frequency enables you to penetrate deeper layers of the skin, which makes RF Microneedling effective and safe for all skin conditions, and skin tones (even acne-prone skin and darker skin)!
RF Microneedling vs. Microneedling:
So, what is the difference between RF Microneedling and traditional Microneedling?
Simply put, RF Microneedling delivers quicker, more dramatic results than traditional Microneedling.
The addition of RF energy amplifies collagen and elastin production significantly more than in a traditional Microneedling procedure, and the RF heat enhances skin tightening.
The RF energy specifically targets sagging skin on the face, neck, hands, and body, making it more customizable than Microneedling alone.
RF Microneedling produces faster, more dramatic, longer-lasting results, and is more effective than traditional Microneedling for:
- Smoothing wrinkles
- Diminishing acne scars
- Patient customization
- Addressing deeper layers of the skin
Is RF Microneedling Safe?
Yes! In fact, RF microneedling is safe for all skin tones, including dark or very tanned skin types. Adverse side effects are extremely rare, and the downtime is minimal.
RF microneedling can be beneficial to all skin types, however it is not recommended if you have those with active acne, cysts, or extremely reactive skin because the treatment can worsen inflammation.
When Will I See Results?
Results will be be apparent after just a few days, and will evolve over the weeks as skin refreshes and rejuvenates.
The optimal results (including the tightening eﬀect) of RF microneedling are seen three to six months following the first treatment.

RF Microneedling is an excellent treatment for anyone struggling with acne scars, signs of aging, or someone who wants to achieve smoother, healthier skin.
