Radiofrequency micro needling is a non-surgical treatment that rejuvenates the skin by delivering radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin. The treatment involves using tiny needles to create micro-injuries on the skin, which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
This results in smoother skin texture, firmer skin, and improved skin tone, making it an excellent treatment option for fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and poor skin texture.
Radiofrequency micro needling is suitable for all skin types and can be performed on various areas of the body that require skin rejuvenation, such as the face, neck, and hands. One of the key benefits of radiofrequency micro needling is that it provides long-lasting results without the need for surgery or a lengthy recovery period.
The treatment is minimally invasive, and most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the session, although the skin may appear slightly red or swollen for around 24 hours after the treatment. Micro needling with radio frequency is an effective treatment for individuals who want to improve their skin's overall appearance and achieve a more youthful and radiant look.

Radiofrequency micro needling is a highly effective skin rejuvenation treatment. It involves the use of energy waves to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The result is tighter and firmer skin, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, and improved skin texture and tone.
The radiofrequency energy heats the skin, causing a mild thermal reaction that triggers the body's natural healing response. This response includes the production of new collagen and elastin fibres, which help to improve skin elasticity and firmness.
The treatment has been shown to improve overall skin texture and tone while reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Another bonus to this treatment is the procedure is minimally invasive, with little downtime, making it an ideal option for those looking for a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelifts. Given the impressive results achieved by RF micro needling, this treatment is definitely worth considering for anyone looking to improve their skin texture and restore a youthful appearance.
HOW DOES RF MICRONEEDLING WORK?
RF micro needling devices like the lynton focus dual or Morpheus8 use fine, sterile needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. The radiofrequency energy is then delivered through these microchannels, heating the deeper layers of the tissue. The heat stimulates collagen and elastin production, which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten the skin. The treatment triggers the skin's natural healing response, promoting the repair of the microchannels and encouraging the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres. The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency technology makes RF micro needling an effective and safe skin-tightening treatment.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF RADIO FREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING LAST?
Patients typically see results within several weeks to months after the treatment. The effects of RF micro needling can last for up to a year or longer, depending on the individual patient's skin type and lifestyle factors. However, most patients require a series of treatments spaced six to twelve weeks for microneedling or six to eight for skin pen (which is microneedling without rf) apart to achieve optimal results.
DOES RADIO FREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING HURT?
The good news is that most patients have reported minimal discomfort during their radio frequency micro needling sessions. Some patients may experience redness or sensitivity after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours or days. All in all, the sensation during radio frequency micro needling is often described as a prickling and heat sensation but can vary depending on skin type and sensitivity. With proper preparation and communication with Sarah, radio frequency micro needling can be a comfortable and effective way to improve your skin's appearance.
