Everyone wants a complexion that reflects health and beauty. But sometimes skin concerns such as acne scarring, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin laxity can come between you and the aesthetic that you want for your skin.
One treatment that can help you gain a clearer, brighter, and healthier complexion while addressing aging concerns is microneedling. Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production to improve skin texture and tone.

What Is Microneedling?
RF microneedling is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that utilizes both radiofrequency technology and microneedling technology to promote positive changes in the skin. During the treatment, the device sends radiofrequency energy under the superficial layer of skin through specialized microneedles that are gold plated. Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is used to puncture the outermost layer of skin and promote the growth of collagen and skin regrowth. The heat from radiofrequency uses energy to trigger collagen, elastin, and growth factor production deep in the layers of the skin leading to younger-looking and tighter skin.
The heat energy of radiofrequency is not light-based but electrical, which makes the treatment non-invasive and a gentle way to tighten the skin. The top layer of the skin is not damaged, and the energy bypasses the surface of the skin into deeper levels to lift tissues, improve skin tone, and structure and encourage hair regrowth.
Microneedling creates tiny wounds to encourage the body’s natural defenses to begin the healing process and promote skin regeneration by stimulating collagen production. More collagen means better skin repair and support for smooth and tight skin. RF microneedling develops an environment to optimize collagen growth plus while encouraging dermal health and restoring younger and healthier skin.
What Can RF Microneedling Treat?
Acne and Acne Scars
Microneedling provides an effective solution for both active acne and lingering acne scars. By stimulating collagen production, microneedling for acne scars aids in the healing process and smoothes out scar tissue, promoting a clearer complexion.
Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
This treatment aids in fading post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation by promoting rapid cell turnover. It evens out skin tone by reducing the visibility of dark spots that linger after an acne breakout or injury.
RF microneedling can tighten and firm up sagging skin. It promotes the synthesis of new collagen and elastin, vital proteins responsible for skin firmness and elasticity.
Microneedling services can be effective for treating certain types of pigmented lesions by disrupting the pigment and promoting the body’s natural healing process. As the treated area heals, skin tone can become more even and consistent.
Microneedling can help stimulate collagen and new tissue growth around the pores. This can lead to a smoother, more refined texture with less noticeable pores.
By promoting collagen and elastin production, RF microneedling can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This leads to a more youthful appearance and smoother, healthier skin.
Melasma and Redness
For individuals with melasma or skin conditions that cause redness, RF microneedling results can include a more balanced skin tone with more consistent pigmentation.
While not a cure for rosacea, microneedling can help manage its symptoms. The treatment may reduce redness and improve overall skin texture, promoting healthier, more resilient skin.
RF microneedling is an effective treatment for stretch marks, which can occur because of damage to the existing collagen fibers. By promoting collagen production, this treatment aids in filling in the areas of skin where stretch marks have occurred, reducing their visibility.
Microneedling can stimulate hair follicles, promoting new growth and improving the density of thinning hair. This can lead to a thicker, fuller appearance over time.
For those battling a dull, lackluster complexion, microneedling can rejuvenate the skin. By promoting cell turnover and stimulating blood flow, it brings a natural, healthy glow to the skin surface.
4 Key Benefits of RF Microneedling
1. Customizable Treatment Options to Address Specific Concerns
One of the significant benefits of RF microneedling is its ability to be tailored to the individual needs of each client. By adjusting the depth and intensity of the treatment, we can target specific concerns such as acne scars, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. This allows for a treatment plan that is as unique as your skin.
2. Non-Surgical and Non-Invasive Treatment
RF microneedling treatments offer a non-surgical, non-invasive option for skin rejuvenation. This makes it an attractive alternative for those who want to avoid the risks and downtime associated with surgical procedures. Plus, the treatment is generally well-tolerated, with many clients reporting minimal discomfort.
3. Suitable for Most Skin Types and Tones
RF microneedling is versatile enough to be suitable for almost all skin types and tones. From lighter to darker skin, this treatment offers the potential for improvement without significant risk of pigment changes. This makes it a more accessible option for skin rejuvenation.
4. Can Be Used on Many Areas
While RF microneedling services are often associated with facial treatments, it’s not limited to this area. It can be effectively used on many other parts of the body including the neck, chest, abdomen, and even the scalp. This makes it a versatile treatment for addressing skin concerns on a wider scale.
The RF Microneedling Process From Consultation to Post-Treatment
RF microneedling begins with an in-depth consultation. During this initial meeting, we will assess your skin’s unique needs and your personal skincare goals. We’ll also discuss your medical history and current skin condition to ensure that microneedling is a suitable option for you.
With the green light for treatment, we move to the planning phase. This is where we design a customized treatment plan that considers the specific areas of your skin you’d like to target. We’ll also prepare you for the process by explaining each step in detail, answering any questions you might have.
On the day of the treatment, the targeted area will be thoroughly cleaned and a topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. The microneedling device is then placed on the skin and the area is treated a section at a time.
The treatment typically takes between 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Once the treatment is complete, a soothing serum or cream will be applied to your skin to aid in recovery.
Following your appointment, we will give you detailed post-treatment care instructions to aid your skin recovery and ensure optimal treatment efficacy. This can include avoiding sun exposure, minimizing strenuous exercise, and using mild skincare products.
For some people, regular microneedling services may be recommended to achieve long-term results, but we will always guide you on the appropriate frequency based on your skin type, condition, and goals.
Microneedling Results and Recovery
You may experience a sunburn-like sensation, some minor swelling, and redness immediately after the treatment, but these typically go away in a few hours. It can take several weeks or even months for your body to build additional collagen and for results to become apparent.
