What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Radiofrequency microneedling can treat common skin concerns such as lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and more. RF (radiofrequency) microneedling is an excellent treatment to enhance and rejuvenate the skin.
How Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Work?
We use the advanced Secret™ RF microneedling system to encourage collagen and elastin growth. Similar to standard microneedling, RF microneedling uses small, fine needles to pierce the skin to create areas of micro-damage on the skin. The areas of micro-damage promote a rapid healing response. The difference is that radiofrequency energy is emitted from the needles into the skin. The radiofrequency energy that the Secret™ RF microneedling system emits penetrates the skin past the layers the microneedles pierce, triggering the skin’s rapid healing responses at a deeper level. Essentially, the radiofrequency emitted from the needles is converted into heat that further promotes the skin healing process.
Standard microneedling is effective for the rejuvenation of the skin but RF microneedling provides skin results that are immediately visible. RF microneedling is also less invasive than standard microneedling because a smaller fraction of the skin is pierced by the needles.
You will need multiple treatment sessions with the Secret™ RF system to see the optimal results. Most people have three treatment sessions to see the best skin benefits. Periodic treatment sessions for those who want to maintain their results are recommended.
What Will Radiofrequency Microneedling Treat?
RF microneedling treats several signs of aging skin concerns. The concerns that will be treated include wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone as well as texture, and loss of skin elasticity. As you age, the production of collagen and elastin starts to lessen. The lessening of collagen and elastin leads to skin concerns appearing such as loss of skin elasticity, thinness, and wrinkles. RF microneedling promotes the response of the rapid healing process within the skin, increasing the collagen and elastin found.
How Is Treatment With the Secret™RF Microneedling System?
The Secret™ RF microneedling system is able to be customized to fit your skin-specific needs. There are two tips to the system – the 25 pin and the 64 pin respectively. The pins can be adjusted for different depths of penetration into the skin. Your provider will determine the customizations that will best benefit your skin during your consultation.
Numbing treatment will be applied to the skin before the RF microneedling process begins to ensure the least amount of discomfort. During the treatment session, your provider will use the handheld system on your skin. While the treatment session is happening, you may feel a pricking sensation on the skin. Each treatment session is usually 20 minutes long.
Is There Downtime From RF Microneedling Treatment?
There is no downtime after an RF microneedling session and you are able to continue your day right after it ends. After the session, you may see some redness or swelling on the skin that may feel similar to a sunburn. Put sunscreen on the treated skin to protect from sun exposure.

What Are The Benefits of RF Microneedling?
Compared to standard microneedling, RF microneedling provides even more substantial improvement to the skin. Common skin concerns that improve from RF microneedling are sun damage, acne scarring, and wrinkles. There is also an improvement in the elasticity of the skin because of collagen and elastin production.
The benefits of using the Secret™ RF system are that:
- Each individual’s treatment is customized to their skin concerns
