How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?
If you have lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, or other signs of aging, RF microneedling can restore a younger appearance by firming and improving the condition of your skin. Enjoy the benefits of highly customized treatment to produce the improvements you want to see.
What is RF Microneedling?
RF (radiofrequency) microneedling combines two treatments to enhance your overall results. Microneedling penetrates the skin to create channels that trigger healing and rejuvenation, while the radiofrequency energy uses controlled damage to stimulate collagen production to tighten and firm the skin. For people who want to see tighter, more energized and youthful skin, RF microneedling offers an excellent option.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
At Luminesse Laser, we use the Secret™ RF microneedling system. The Secret™RF offers a wide range of settings to let your aesthetician precisely tailor the size of the treatment area, the depth of the needles, and the choice of partially insulated needles to make treatment safer for those more prone to develop pigmentation.
The needles used in microneedling penetrate less than half a millimeter into the skin, creating tiny channels that trigger the skin’s natural repair process. The needles also emit RF energy, which triggers cells in the deeper layers of the skin to produce more collagen. This collagen provides the skin with firmness, support, and lift.
How Much is RF Microneedling?
Costs of RF microneedling will vary depending on the size of the areas you have treated. Factors also include your location, your provider, and associated costs. RealSelf estimates the average price for Secret™RF as $1175, with variations from $500 to $2100. During your consultation, we can provide you with a more accurate estimate.
What Can RF Microneedling Treat?
RF microneedling can produce noticeable improvements in skin tone, texture, and appearance. It can treat signs of aging, including:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Rough skin texture
- Skin laxity
- Acne scarring
Over several sessions, you will see increasing improvements in your target areas and progress toward your treatment goals. Concerns like scarring, deeper lines, and wrinkles, or pigmentation issues may require more treatments to resolve them. Treatment is always customized to your individual goals and expectations.
What is RF Microneedling Treatment Like?
The Secret™RF handheld device can use tips with 25 or 64 pins to allow treatment of both larger and very precise areas. A provider can also adjust the depth of needle penetration, which also controls the depth of the radiofrequency energy. You also have the option of uninsulated microneedles, which emit energy along their whole length, or insulated microneedles that only deliver energy to deeper layers. This last option can be important for people with darker skin who can experience pigmentation issues with ordinary treatments. Treatment takes only about twenty minutes.

What Results Will I See With RF Microneedling?
You will see immediate results after treatment as the body initiates healing of the tiny channels created by the needles. These will close within hours, and the skin will produce healthy new skin cells to repair the damage. This cell turnover provides an immediate improvement, while collagen production provides long-term benefits.
Your full results will take several months as the skin cells develop more collagen. The skin continues to become tighter and firmer, smoothing away lines and wrinkles. The treatment can help break up acne scarring and restore a smoother, more youthful appearance. Most people will need at least three treatments to see their best results, and those who want to keep these results may need an occasional maintenance treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
Most people make good candidates for RF microneedling. If you want to improve skin laxity, texture, and tone, Secret™RF may be right for you. Individuals with active acne in the treatment area may need to wait until this resolves in order to avoid complications. Those with simple acne and acne scars make good candidates if not experiencing a breakout. Candidates should have reasonable expectations about what Secret™RF microneedling can accomplish.
Is There Any Downtime With RF Microneedling?
You can resume your usual activities right after treatment. Your skin may look red or feel sensitive for a few hours after treatment. You will need to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect treated skin from the sun while it heals.
