Boost Collagen &
Revitalize Your Complexion

RF Microneedling combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy. During the treatment, a handheld device equipped with tiny needles punctures the skin’s surface at controlled depths. Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the dermis, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This dual-action approach triggers the skin’s natural healing response, promoting tissue remodeling and rejuvenation.

The radiofrequency energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, enhancing collagen synthesis and tightening existing collagen fibers. This improves skin texture and tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. RF Microneedling is suitable for various skin types and concerns and offers minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures, making it an appealing option for those seeking effective skin rejuvenation without downtime.

RF Microneedling FAQs

Who is a good candidate for RF Microneedling?

The ideal candidates for RF Microneedling are individuals seeking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin concerns without undergoing surgery. You should be in generally good health and have realistic expectations about the results of the treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Magill will assess your skin condition and medical history to determine if RF Microneedling is right for you.

Is RF Microneedling suitable for all skin types?

Yes, RF Microneedling is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. Unlike certain laser treatments, which may pose a risk of hyperpigmentation for darker skin tones, RF Microneedling does not target melanin in the skin, making it a suitable option for most patients.

How do I prepare for an RF Microneedling treatment?

Dr. Magill will provide specific instructions to help you prepare. This may include avoiding certain medications and skincare products, such as retinoids and exfoliants, for a period of time leading up to the procedure. Additionally, it’s essential to stay hydrated and protect your skin from sun exposure in the days leading up to your appointment.

Is RF Microneedling painful?

While individual pain tolerance varies, most patients find RF Microneedling tolerable. Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort. During the treatment, you may feel a sensation of heat and slight pressure as the device moves across your skin. However, any discomfort is typically well-managed and temporary.

Are there any potential risks or side effects associated with RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling is a safe procedure with minimal risks when performed by a qualified and experienced provider like Dr. Magill. However, as with any cosmetic treatment, there are potential risks and side effects, including temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and sensitivity. These effects are typically mild and resolve on their own within a few days.

What is the downtime associated with RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling involves little to no downtime. Following the treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, similar to a sunburn. These side effects resolve within a few days, and you can resume regular activities immediately. However, you should avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day or two to ensure optimal results.

How many treatments are needed to see results?

The number of treatments required depends on your skin concerns and desired outcomes. In general, a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. However, you may notice improvements in your skin’s appearance after just one session, with continued enhancement over time.

How long do the results of RF Microneedling last?

The results of RF Microneedling are long-lasting, as the treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production, which continue to improve skin texture and tone over time. While individual results may vary, most patients experience noticeable improvement in their skin’s appearance for up to 6 months or longer after completing a series of treatments.
