RadioFrequency (RF) Microneedling

- Tighten skin and improve texture
- Boost natural collagen and elastin production
What to Expect
Photos will be taken prior to your procedure to track your progress. A topical numbing will be applied for your comfort.
Your provider will begin treatment by gently applying the device across your skin. This creates microscopic channels in the skin and delivers the RadioFrequency energy to a predetermined depth.
This procedure includes complimentary Pronox.
Your skin may be pink and there may be a small amount of pinpoint bleeding. Most patients experience mild redness and swelling that resolves in 1-2 days.
Will there be downtime?
RF Microneedling treatments cause minimal downtime. Most patients experience mild redness and swelling that lasts 1-2 days.
Does RF Microneedling hurt?
We provide a topical numbing cream to help you feel more comfortable, and ProNox, or laughing gas, can also be added to the treatment to make you more comfortable.
How do I care for my skin post-treatment?
It is important not to apply anything other than what is recommended to the treated skin, especially for the first 12-24 hours, as the micro-injuries need time to heal. You can wash your face 12 hours after the procedure and we encourage you to use mineral-based makeup as this is healthier for the skin.
When will I start seeing results?
Results start to develop at 3 months and will continue to improve over the next 8+ months.
