Proteins like collagen and elastin give your skin its strength and resilience, but these vital proteins decline as we age. RF microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, restores youthful levels of collagen production to give you smooth, rejuvenated skin by triggering your skin’s natural healing abilities.

What is RF Microneedling?

Standard microneedling uses tiny needles that create microchannels in the skin. These channels stimulate collagen and elastin production while speeding up the production of healthy new skin cells. RF microneedling boosts these effects using radiofrequency (RF) energy. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we offer Genius RF microneedling, the only device that precisely measures and controls the RF energy for maximum results with minimum downtime. 

How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?

The cost of RF microneedling varies depending on factors such as:

  • Your location
  • Your provider’s skill and experience
  • The type of RF microneedling system
  • The areas being treated
  • The number of sessions needed
  • Your skin concerns and goals

Because Genius RF microneedling is an advanced system that provides superior results, the average cost of treatment may be higher than older, less effective technologies. The cost ranges from $1,200 to $4,200. We recommend a consultation to discuss your goals, how many sessions you may need, and other factors that will contribute to your final cost.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

During RF microneedling, tiny needles enter your skin to a precisely controlled depth. The needles release a measured amount of RF energy into the dermal layers of your skin. This energy activates cells called fibroblasts, signaling an increase in collagen and elastin production. The damage created by the microchannels also causes the release of healing and growth factors that bring fresh, healthy cells to the skin’s surface.  

How Many RF Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?

The number of recommended RF microneedling treatments depends on your unique skin concerns. Most people achieve their desired results in three to six sessions. Deeper textural and pigmentation issues, such as wrinkles and acne scars, will usually require more treatments. 

Genius RF microneedling ensures you see results in as few treatments as possible by precisely measuring how much energy to apply to each area. No area receives too much or not enough treatment, preventing skin injury and maximizing your results. 

Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is safe and effective for almost anyone. Unlike lasers, RF energy is safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates have reasonable expectations and are in overall good health. Candidates may want to address a wide range of skin concerns. You should not have this treatment if you have an active skin condition or infection in the treatment area, are pregnant, or tend to form keloid scars.

“Had a wonderful experience at this office. The parking garage was right across the entrance, and they validate parking. The practice was beautiful and clean. The staff was friendly and professional. I’ve heard wonderful things about all the Doctors. I had my consult with Dr. Peters and she answered all my questions. She was delicate with her filler placement and had my lips perfectly balanced. I highly recommend this practice.”
