What is RF Microneedling? 

Radiofrequency microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique to promote collagen and elastin production. As you age, your skin produces less collagen, which results in thinner and less vibrant skin. To remedy the effects of aging, microneedling uses the body’s healing abilities to resolve these conditions. 

Microneedling encourages the skin to boost production by creating microchannels in the skin. The tiny needles cause microdamage, triggering the skin’s natural healing process. Radiofrequency technology digs deeper into the skin by heating the cells below the surface, prompting higher collagen rates than traditional microneedling. 

Top 5 Reasons to Try Radiofrequency Microneedling

Chemical peels, traditional microneedling, and lasers are all options for addressing lighter skin conditions, but radiofrequency microneedling targets conditions on a deeper level through its RF energy and offers more than other options. 

1.It Works on All Skin Tones

Chemical peels and lasers pose the risk of hyperpigmentation. As a result, these treatments may not work on darker skin. Radiofrequency microneedling works on all skin types and tones, making RF microneedling an excellent alternative treatment for darker skin types. 

2.It’s a Customizable Treatment

In consultation, you can discuss your goals in the treatment. RF microneedling can treat larger or smaller areas depending on your needs. Our specialists at Luminesse will determine the customizations to benefit your skin. 

3.It Rejuvenates the Skin

By creating microchannels in the skin, RF microneedling encourages the production of collagen and elastin, proteins responsible for keeping your skin bright and flexible. The radiofrequency energy heats the skin in lower layers to trigger higher collagen production than traditional microneedling, resulting in glowing skin. 

4.There’s No Downtime

There is no downtime after an RF microneedling session. After your treatment, you may see some redness or swelling similar to a sunburn, but you may immediately return to your normal activities. Please use sunscreen on treated skin to protect from sun exposure. 

5.There are Immediate Results

You will notice immediate visible results after your first session. As collagen production increases in the following weeks, the results only improve. You will need multiple treatment sessions for optimal results. Most people see the best skin condition after three treatments.

What Can Radiofrequency Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling treats several signs of aging along with a variety of skin conditions. Some of the conditions RF microneedling treats are:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Poor facial skin laxity
  • Some burn scars

Utilizing your body’s natural healing abilities, you can minimize these symptoms and restore your confidence in your skin. 

How Is Treatment with the Secret™ RF Microneedling System?

At Luminesse, we use Secret™ RF to provide customizable treatments to fit your needs. There are two tips to the system–the 25-pin and 64-pin. One of our specialists will adjust the pins for different depths of penetration determined during your consultation. Furthermore, the Secret™ RF system provides efficient results for larger areas, allowing for quicker and better results than other treatments. 

During your appointment, your provider will use a handheld device on your skin. You may feel a pricking sensation during the treatment. A topical anesthetic will be applied before the microneedling process to reduce any feelings of discomfort. The treatment typically takes 20 minutes. 

Am I a Candidate for RF Microneedling?

Anyone looking to improve their skin condition is a good candidate for microneedling. Since it works on all skin pigments, it is more effective than other treatments on anyone with darker skin tones. 

If you have an active acne breakout, you may need to wait to begin your treatment. If you are prone to keloid scarring, you may not be a good candidate for RF microneedling. If you have damaged or broken skin, you can still consult with us on treatment plans to rejuvenate your skin.
