What are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

Microneedling with radiofrequency energy (RF) stimulates the renewal and rebuilding of the skin, leading to a fresh and youthful-looking skin. By triggering the production of collagen, RF microneedling treats skin concerns ranging from lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation and sun damage.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

RF microneedling uses tiny needles inserted only millimeters into the skin to create small areas of damage with healthy skin in between. This triggers a flood of healing factors that will rapidly close these micro-injuries and begin rebuilding the skin.

The process of causing damage to the skin also stimulates the production of collagen, a key protein that gives skin its structure and resilience. Loss of collagen with age leads to lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging. 

RF energy penetrates deeper into the skin, letting RF microneedling create more collagen production in more levels of the skin than traditional microneedling treatments. RF energy, converted to heat, signals the skin to start its repair and rebuilding process.

What is RF Microneedling Like?

At Luminesse Laser and Skin Clinic, we use Secret™RF technology for our RF microneedling. This system provides the most advanced microneedling available with multiple settings and adjustable needle depth. 

We will apply a numbing treatment to your skin to make sure you feel comfortable during treatment. Your provider will pass the handpiece over your skin. You may feel some tingling or buzzing. 

Treatment takes as little as 20 minutes. Healthy tissue surrounding the areas of micro-damage will almost immediately start repairs. Unlike some laser treatments that affect the entire surface of the face, a fractionated treatment like the Secret™RF treats only a fraction of the skin, leaving the healthy skin to trigger the healing process faster. 

What are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling with the Secret™RF has numerous benefits over other methods of treatment.

  • Adjustable to target each person’s individual treatment concerns
  • Effective on more different conditions with fewer side effects
  • Two forms of treatment at the same time maximize results
  • Enhanced collagen production for smoother, firmer skin
  • Little to no downtime, unlike some treatments
  • Immediate, visible results
  • Long-term benefits that keep improving for weeks or months
  • Fractional technology to minimize recovery time

Is There Any Downtime With RF Microneedling?

You can resume normal activities right after treatment. Some people may notice some sensitivity or redness in the treated skin for a few hours. 

Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

If you want to address signs of aging, sun damage, or other skin issues using a powerful technology with minimal downtime, you may be a good candidate. You should consult with your provider about any health issues you have, including any skin conditions.
