What is RF Microneedling?

RF or Radio Frequency Micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy), is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that creates micro-injuries or invisible pricks in the skin’s dermis with tiny sterilized needles. Radiofrequency energy is transmitted deep into the skin, activating the body’s natural healing and renewal processes by stimulating collagen and elastin production, improving the skin’s texture and tone for younger looking skin. RF Micro-needling is considered safe for all skin types, with minimal downtime, no incision or surgery, and the results are long-lasting and immediate.

The entire procedure usually takes about 30 minutes, with most people needing four to five treatments at four-to-six-week intervals for optimum results. Most people get micro-needling on the face, but it can be done on other parts of the body such as the tummy and thighs. Healing time is about one week. The most common side effect is minor skin irritation and redness immediately following the procedure. This is normal and will disappear in a few days.

What to expect: First a numbing cream will be applied to your face. Your esthetician will then move a pen-shaped tool with tiny needles around your face to make small pricks in your skin. The RF micron devise emits radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, activating the body’s natural healing and renewal processes. Focused heat reduces localized fat and boosts collagen production, repairing and tightening the skin from within.

What are the Benefits? RF Micro-needling sculpts and contours the face and neck areas, improves symmetry, and firms, tightens and lifts sagging skin. People who suffer from Acne, Hair Loss (Alopecia), Dark Spots or Hyperpigmentation, Sun Damage, Stretch Marks, or Fine Lines and Wrinkles, would benefit most from this procedure. Micro-Needling is also less expensive than laser treatments.

Who is NOT a candidate? People who have keloids (scars that look like large bubbles on the skin) are not good candidates for micro-needling as it may cause possible scarring.
