At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we use radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to provide patients with firmer, more even-toned skin that looks years younger and brighter. This special form of microneedling combines the benefits of this process with powerful but harmless RF energy.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling using the Genius® RF microneedling system provides optimal results combining the benefits of two technologies. RF microneedling remains popular due to its minimal downtime and outstanding skin rejuvenating properties. 

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

This treatment uses a device that uses needles to create tiny micro-channels into the skin. At the same time, the needles emit RF energy. The micro-damage caused by the needles immediately stimulates the skin to produce healing and repair factors. Over time, it will also trigger the production of new collagen. This protein forms the skin’s support network and makes it firmer and tighter. At the same time, the treatment helps to break up areas of uneven skin tone like acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. 

The RF energy enhances collagen production, and it can reach deeper into the skin than regular microneedling, enhancing collagen development in the lower layers of the skin. This provides enhanced support, firmness, and fullness to the skin.

What are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling offers many benefits for the skin. Many of these come from the improved production of collagen created by this dual treatment. 

  • Smoother, firmer skin
  • More even skin tone with decreased hyperpigmentation
  • Brighter, more youthful-looking skin
  • Smaller, tighter pores
  • Reduced visibility of acne scarring and other scars
  • Improved skin texture

Many of these improvements come from the production of collagen, so the combination of microneedling and RF energy combine to produce better results than either one alone. 

How Long Will it Take to See Results?

Most people need three to six treatments to see their best results. You will start to see results after a few weeks, with maximum results appearing after three to six months. The development of new collagen takes time, so results do not appear immediately, but because they use your body’s own collagen, they can last up to a year or more. We recommend yearly maintenance treatments to keep your results looking as good as possible. 

Is There Any Downtime for RF Microneedling?

You will have minimal downtime and can return to your activities right away. Make sure to wear sun protection and avoid the sun while your skin heals, and maintain a consistent sun protection routine since UV damage will diminish your results. Avoid harsh cleansers or products for a few days. 

Am I a Good Candidate For RF Microneedling?

Most people can receive RF microneedling. Good candidates have mild to moderate signs of aging and reasonable expectations about treatment results. You may not be a good candidate if you are pregnant, have a skin infection, or have recently taken certain acne medications.
