RF microneedling, also known as radiofrequency microneedling, is an advanced skin rejuvenation procedure that combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment designed to improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

During an RF microneedling session, a device equipped with fine, insulated needles is used to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries prompt the skin’s natural healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.

What sets RF microneedling apart from traditional microneedling is the additional application of radiofrequency energy. The RF energy is delivered through the microneedles and reaches the deeper layers of the skin, heating the tissue and further stimulating collagen production. This combination of microneedling and RF energy amplifies the overall effectiveness of the treatment, leading to more significant skin tightening and rejuvenation results.
