RF Microneedling Q&A

What is RF microneedling?

RF microneedling is a cutting-edge aesthetics treatment that includes both radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling.

RF energy

Controlled amounts of RF energy transform into heat once it's in your deeper skin layers. This heat causes contractions of your skin's supporting collagen, which brings on skin tightening and lifting. 

RF energy also triggers collagen and elastin remodeling within your dermis, which helps to smooth out and fill in lines, wrinkles, and scars over time.

Microneedling

Microneedling treatment creates tiny pricks in your skin's surface layer with a group of sterile needles. This creates a direct tunnel to reach the dermis where you produce collagen and elastin. 

These pinpricks stimulate your body's injury response, including new collagen and elastin production. Microneedling can smooth scars, improve overall skin texture, and fade lines and wrinkles.

In an RF microneedling treatment, the microneedles are hollow. As the needles penetrate the skin, RF energy moves through them and directly into the skin. This gives you the benefits of both treatment types, for particularly powerful skin renewal.

What kinds of skin concerns does RF microneedling treat?

RF microneedling is a good solution for many skin issues, including:

  • Skin sagging
  • Rough skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Pigmented skin lesions (age spots, melasma, freckles)

These issues can occur in many areas, and the RF microneedling treatment is effective in treating the face, body, and hands. 

What can I expect during RF microneedling treatments?

A topical anesthetic can numb your skin to ensure the RF microneedling procedure is comfortable. You may feel some pricks, pressure, and heat during the treatment, but most people tolerate it very well. 

After your RF microneedling treatment, your skin may look a bit red and swollen. Compassionate Health Med Spa provides skin care instructions to help you heal quickly. There's little-to-no downtime after RF microneedling, with most people going back to their normal routine that day or the next morning.

When will I see the results of RF microneedling?

Collagen and elastin remodeling occurs gradually over a period of about six months. But you may notice a positive improvement as soon as a few weeks after your first RF microneedling procedure. Most people have a short series of treatments for ideal results.
