What is RF Microneedling and What Does it Do?

Posted on June 22, 2023

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that has recently gained popularity for its ability to rejuvenate and address various skin concerns.

At Results Medical Aesthetics, we offer a unique and innovative approach to microneedling that incorporates radiofrequency (RF) technology for enhanced outcomes.

Understanding Microneedling

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure that involves the use of tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin fibers. This leads to an overall improvement in the skin’s texture, tone, and appearance.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

At Results Medical Aesthetics, we utilize radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, which takes the procedure to the next level. This advanced technology combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the power of radiofrequency energy, delivering the energy deep into the dermis layer of the skin.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling offers a range of benefits to address various skin concerns, such as:

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

By stimulating collagen and elastin production, microneedling helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin.

Acne Scars

Microneedling can also improve the appearance of acne scars by breaking up scar tissue and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

Skin Texture and Tone

The increased collagen and elastin production from microneedling can improve the skin’s overall texture and tone, making it appear more radiant and youthful.

Pore Size

As the skin becomes firmer and more elastic, microneedling can also help to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.

Stretch Marks

By promoting the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers, microneedling can improve the appearance of stretch marks on various body areas.

The Microneedling Procedure

The microneedling procedure at Results Medical Aesthetics typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.


Before the treatment, your skin will be cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils. A topical numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.


Once your skin is prepared, the microneedling device, which features tiny needles, is gently pressed against the skin. The device creates micro-injuries in the skin while simultaneously delivering radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin.

Recovery and Aftercare

Following the microneedling treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort similar to a sunburn. These side effects are temporary and usually subside within 24 to 48 hours. Following the aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner at Results Medical Aesthetics is essential to ensure optimal healing and results.

Sun Protection

After microneedling, protecting your skin from the sun is crucial, as it will be more sensitive to UV rays. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily and avoid direct sun exposure during peak hours.

Skincare Products

Your practitioner will recommend appropriate skincare products after your microneedling treatment. Some products on the market may be too harsh for the healing skin.

Results and Maintenance

You may start noticing your skin’s appearance improvements within a week or two after the treatment. However, optimal results are typically seen after several treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments needed will depend on your specific skin concerns and goals.
