What is RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling is an innovative procedure that combines Microneedling with radiofrequency energy, taking skin rejuvenation to the next level. RF Microneedling is able to target deeper layers of skin while leaving the outer layer of skin intact. The insulated needles pierce the skin with accuracy treating several skin concerns such as:

  • active acne
  • acne scarring
  • pore size
  • oil production
  • hyperpigmentation
  • fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • hyperhydrosis (excess sweating)
  • overall skin rejuvenation

How it works
How it works

Microneedle radiofrequency, as the name suggested, combines two techniques of radiofrequency and microneedling.

Micro-puncturing causes microtrauma which forces the skin to rapidly activate the healing and renewal process. This treatment may effectively treat a range of concerns, including:

  • Stretch marks
  • Atrophic scars (e.g. acne scars)
  • Flabby, thin skin of the face, neck or abdomen (e.g. after pregnancy)
  • Skin laxity
  • Signs of aging
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Loss of the face oval
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperhidrosis

The most common treatment areas include the face, neck, and decolletage, but the Micro RF handpiece can also be used on the buttocks, underarms, abdomen, knees, thighs, and almost any other body area.

Micro RF works by creating controlled microdamage from both the ultra-fine needles and heat. This stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing response, kick-starting the biological processes that create new collagen and elastin.

Aging and environmental damage break down these essential structural proteins, and the rate of replacement slows over time. Procedures like Micro RF can slow and reverse this process, helping skin look more youthful.

Can It Treat Acne, Too?
Can It Treat Acne, Too?

The safety and efficacy of fractional radiofrequency microneedling in the treatment of acne were investigated in a recent clinical trial. The trial consisted of 25 subjects suffering from moderate to severe acne.

These subjects were treated with RF Microneedling three times at one month intervals.

The results revealed that the number of acne lesion, both inflammatory and non-inflammatory decreased significantly. The sebum excretion(oil production) and subject satisfaction scores were statistically favorable at each point of measurement compared to the baseline. It was also observed that the inflammatory acne lesions had better improvement than the non-inflammatory lesions.

What is involved with Micro RF treatment?
What is involved with Micro RF treatment?

Before the procedure, the skin is anesthetized with ointment to provide the client with maximum comfort. After the treatment area is disinfected, the Micro RF device is applied, puncturing the skin at appropriately adjusted depths and time intervals. While puncturing, an electromagnetic radio frequency (rf) wave is emitted. A single exposure takes no more than a few seconds.

Microneedle radiofrequency affects several zones; skin coagulation (deep puncture), coagulation, reconstruction and thickening of collagen (intermediate puncture), thickening and reconstruction of collagen (superficial puncture).

After the procedure, the skin is red and may appear swollen and red. In most cases, everything disappears in the next few days.

The skin condition will improve over time as a result of regenerative processes.

How does Micro RF help with resurfacing?
How does Micro RF help with resurfacing?

Micro RF causes a natural response to produce new collagen-rich tissue. Generation of new, collagen-rich tissue tightens skin, reduces scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and fine lines in the skin. This thus improves the overall texture and appearance of your skin.
