Radiofrequency Microneedling

What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is one of the more recent techniques that has gained popularity for its safety profile and short healing period. The treatment involves use of a handheld device with tiny needles on the end. The needles gently puncture the skin and release radiofrequency energy deep into the skin. This produces ‘thermal zones’ in the deeper layers of the skin to promote healing and skin rejuvenation.

What does RF Microneedling do?

Radiofrequency Microneedling uses needles to deliver heat energy into the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving texture, tone, and tightness for rejuvenation and scar reduction.

What happens during a RF Microneedling treatment?

1. Initial Consultation

Start your RF microneedling journey with an initial consultation with a qualified cosmetic practitioner to determine the suitability of RF microneedling for your concerns.

2. Pre-Treatment Preparation

Prior to commencing treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleansed and topical anaesthetic is applied to increase comfort throughout treatment.

3. Throughout Treatment

Using radiofrequency energy and microneedling, the skin is stamped with the needle cartridge. The needle depth is adjusted depending on the skin type, area and concern being treated.

4. Post Treatment

Immediately following treatment the skin will be red, swollen and pinpoint bleeding evident. Pinpoint bleeding will stop almost immediately following treatment. Redness and swelling can last 5 to 7 days following treatment.

5. Treatment Duration

The entire procedure takes 1 hour to 1.5 hours, varying based on the treatment area.

Frequently asked questions

RF Microneedling can be used to improve a variety of skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damaged skin, and uneven skin tone and texture. It can also help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, making the skin appear firmer and more youthful.

Many people find that RF microneedling is worth it because it can provide significant improvements in the appearance of their skin. While it may require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results, the procedure has minimal downtime and few side effects.

The length of time that RF microneedling results last can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as the age of the patient, the condition of their skin, and their lifestyle habits. In general, results can last for several months to a year or more with proper post-treatment and care.

RF Microneedling is well suited to most people, but there are some individuals who may not be good candidates for the procedure. These include pregnant or nursing women, people with certain skin conditions, and those with a history of keloid scarring.

RF Microneedling and Botox are two different types of treatments that can address different concerns. Botox is typically used to relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while RF microneedling can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.

While RF microneedling is generally well-tolerated, there are some potential side effects and risks associated with the procedure. These can include redness, swelling, bruising, and infection. It’s important to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner to minimise the risk of complications.
