Understanding RF Microneedling

Understanding RF Microneedling

RF microneedling is a breakthrough in anti-aging and skin care treatment. 

Dr. Wilkes and our team at Bala Better Health are excited to offer our patients this revolutionary system. Here, we cover the basics of RF microneedling and show you how it can take your skin care routine into the future.

What is RF Microneedling?

Microneedling (a procedure in which tiny needles perforate your skin and trigger your body’s production of collagen and elastin) is more effective with the addition of radiofrequency (RF) energy. 

Waves of radiofrequency energy create controlled columns of damage in the deepest layers of your skin, enhancing the effects of traditional microneedling treatments. RF may sound mysterious, but you actually come into contact with it daily. You can find RF in light bulbs, cell phones, and Wi-Fi routers. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this type of electromagnetic radiation is non-ionizing, which means it’s harmless to humans. 

What can RF Microneedling do for me?

RF microneedling works to address your most frustrating cosmetic flaws by triggering your body’s natural ability to produce the proteins your skin needs to appear youthful, supple, and smooth. We recommend this procedure for a wide range of skin problems, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • The appearance of large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Minor scars from injury or surgery
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Cellulite

Additionally, RF microneedling is a versatile procedure that can treat flaws on multiple areas of your body — not just your face. 

What can I expect from my treatment?

Initially, the thought of someone poking your skin with needles and flooding it with RF energy may seem potentially uncomfortable but RF microneedling is far gentler than you sound.

First, your skin will be treated with a numbing cream that keeps you comfortable during your treatment. You recline comfortably during your treatment, and within an hour, you will appreciate the improved look and quality of your skin. 

RF microneedling delivers immediate results which will continue to improve over weeks, is virtually pain-free, and requires no downtime.
