RF fractional microneedling
Radiofrequency microneedling or Fractional Micro-needling is a minimally invasive treatment to reduce the appearance of Wrinkles, Scarring, Acne Scarring and Sagging skin and Stretch Marks.
The addition of Radiofrequency energy to the Microneedling procedure helps to further stimulate the body’s natural collagen and healing processes revealing firmer, rejuvenated skin.
The RF energy heats the underlying layers of skin, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster results that are more dramatic.
RF Microneedling uses  a gold plated needle device which gently penetrates the skin to deliver radio-frequency deep into the dermal layers of the skin. The radio frequency heats at depths that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits of collagen stimulation, skin tightening and resurfacing.
The skin that grows back is thicker and smoother. This can target:
●     fine lines
●     wrinkles
●     stretch marks
●     appearance of large pores
●     acne scars
●     scars from injury or surgery
●     hyperpigmentation
●     loose, sagging skin
●     cellulite
●     hyperhidrosis
Benefits of RF MicroNeedling
Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment that has been used for decades to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles or pins creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as skin resurfacing. RF micro-needling adds the element of radiofrequency energy to the traditional micro-needling procedure. The RF energy is delivered via small needles into the dermis. In addition to the benefits seen with the micro-injury provided by the traditional microneedles, RF micro-needling also delivers RF energy deep into the dermis further enhancing skin tightening and scar reduction.
Microneedling and Radio Frequency is used to reduce and improve wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars and generally improve the tone and texture on the skin. Results can include smoother, tighter, more radiant skin. Radio frequency has long been used and is a proven technology. Radio frequency helps stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes and stimulates collagen fibers.
Microneedling and Radio Frequency give you beautiful, smoother, healthier, younger looking skin.
Compared with treatments like chemical peels and dermabrasion, radiofrequency microneedling is minimally invasive.
Alternatively, you should avoid radiofrequency microneedling if you :
●     have an active cold sore breakout
●     have a skin infection
●     have a moderate to severe skin disease (like psoriasis)
●     are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy
●     are pregnant
●     are taking anticoagulants
●     have a history of keloids, hypertrophic scarring, or poor wound healing
Prior to the RF microneedling procedure
At your initial appointment, your provider will ask questions about your medical history and expectations. They’ll also take photos of your face to determine the best technique for your condition, as well as provide instructions on how to prepare for the procedure.
If you have active acne breakouts, you may be asked to take oral antibiotics. If you have a history of cold sores, you might need to take oral antiviral medication.
During the RF microneedling procedure
Your actual procedure will take place in your healthcare provider’s office. Generally, here’s what you can expect:
A healthcare provider cleans your skin with alcohol to prevent infection.
They apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area about 1 hour before the procedure. In some cases, they might inject a local anesthetic instead. The anesthetic numbs the area so you won’t feel pain.
The microneedling device makes tiny wounds in the skin. Simultaneously, the tip of the needle releases radiofrequency waves into the wounds.
The procedure takes 10 - 20 minutes. The exact duration depends on what you’re treating.
A healthcare provider finishes with a soothing solution to minimize any discomfort.
After the RF microneedling procedure
You can go home after the RF treatment and return to your normal activities.
