Microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) is a minimally invasive treatment to treat wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and sagging skin by stimulating the production of collagen. The addition of radiofrequency energy to the micro-needling procedure helps to further stimulate the body’s natural collagen and healing processes revealing firmer, rejuvenated skin. As we get older, the body produces less collagen resulting in a loss of elasticity in the skin and evidence of wrinkles and lines.

What is RF Microneedling?
Microneedling RF technology combines micro-needling to penetrate the skin and uses radiofrequency to deliver heat energy deep into the skin tissue. The layers of the skin respond to the thousands of tiny microscopic energy points by generating new collagen growth which encourages the skin to tighten and heal naturally. The effect is similar to peeling, but with minimal impact.
What areas can be treated?
Microneedling RF is best used to treat skin laxity, pore size, stretch marks, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
Microneedling RF has also proven to be effective in diminishing signs of acne and acne scarring, as well as reducing large unsightly pores and unwanted stretch marks. Microneedling RF also has dramatic effects on acne and acne scarring.
Is the treatment painful and how long does it take?
To ensure comfort, a topical numbing cream is applied. The patient may experience a prickling or warm sensation. The treatment can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
What is the recovery process?
The insertion of insulated micro-needles at precise and controllable depths ensures that the treatment is safe on all skin types and tones and greatly reduces the risk of hyperpigmentation. Recovery requires minimal downtime and results are lasting.
Most patients experience mild redness 1-2 days following treatment. Makeup can be applied after 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
Typically three treatments are needed to show significant results even if some results may be visible after one treatment. Sculpt Away treatment specialists will discuss the optimal number of treatments needed based on skin condition and goals.
Improvements are typically noticeable 6-8 weeks after treatment.
How long will my results last?
Results can vary, depending on the original quality of your skin and degree of damage. Typically, Microneedling RF treatments continue to improve the skin for up to six months for plumper, glowing skin, and smaller pores.
