RF Microneedling

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is an enhanced version of microneedling, one of the most popular non-invasive skin rejuvenation techniques. Microneedling involves making micro-wounds at the dermal level that allows for repair of collagen production capabilities and reverse the signs of aging. RF microneedling combines that with radiofrequency energy to further promote collagen and elastin production. As such, RF Microneedling is one of the most effective non-invasive solutions for sagging skin, lines and scarring.

Which Device Do You Use for RF Microneedling?

Medical Aesthetics performs RF microneedling with the cutting-edge VirtueRF device, which is known for being safe and painless. Unlike traditional microneedling pens, VirtueRF microneedles are driven into the skin via robotic guidance to ensure optimal safety. As such, there’s no risk of pinpoint bleeding and harsh side effects.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

RF microneedling combines the capabilities of radiofrequency energy and microneedling. The VirtueRF device uses a robotic precision delivery (RPD) system to guide the microneedles into the skin at the appropriate depth and deliver radiofrequency energy.

What Does RF Microneedling Treat?

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Sagging skin
  • Facial scarring
  • Textural irregularities
  • Pigmentation problems

Microneedling

Microneedling involves making micro-punctures on the skin’s surface with a specialized device. This signals your body to activate collagen production. Collagen is the skin’s primary structural component, responsible for your skin’s firmness, smoothness, and youthfulness. Microneedling encourages your body to produce new collagen fibers and skin cells, thereby reversing the signs of aging, scars, and other problems.

Radiofrequency Therapy

Radiofrequency energy enhances the natural benefits of microneedling. As the microneedles penetrate your skin’s surface, they deliver radiofrequency waves into the dermal layer of the skin. The dermal layer responds to heat energy by activating collagen and elastin production. As such, radiofrequency energy also encourages skin lifting and tightening to reverse the signs of aging.

This involves adjusting the microneedling depth according to your skin quality. Your skin is cleansed and numbed with topical anesthesia. Using the VirtueRF device, the aesthetic technician makes micro-punctures in the treatment areas while delivering radiofrequency energy into the dermis. The procedure concludes within 30 minutes.
