Microneedling with radiofrequency (a.k.a. RF Microneedling) is a minimally invasive, FDA- cleared, non-surgical skin rejuvenation technique that can treat a variety of skin concerns such as uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, poor facial skin laxity, acne scars and reduce acne breakouts. Sterile gold plated microneedles create micro wounds in the dermis, the deep layer of the skin, stimulating the natural healing response and collagen production. Radiofrequency energy heats the dermis, triggering platelets and growth factors to restructure collagen and elastin, resulting in tighter skin. The RF heat is applied to the deeper layers of skin so it doesn’t interfere with the melanocytes within the epidermis, unlike many laser treatments that can cause hyperpigmentation. Therefore, this treatment is safe for darker skin tones.
The combination of both technologies in a single treatment revitalizes both the epidermis and dermis for maximum natural-looking results. Over a series of treatments, skin becomes smoother and firmer with long lasting results. Because the epidermis is not damaged during RF microneedling, downtime is shorter than laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels. Simply put, it’s the only treatment that tightens your skin while also reducing your wrinkles at the same time. For many, RF microneedling has been a game-changer.
