Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Smooth, firm, and vibrant skin looks great on everyone, which is why Dr. Charles at MOMADerm offers customized RF microneedling treatments in New York City. Dr. Charles is a board-certified celebrity dermatologist who is renowned for providing incredible skin rejuvenation results.

What Is RF Microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a powerful skin rejuvenation treatment that can restore a healthier, more youthful-looking complexion. This treatment is performed using a specialized device that combines two proven skin revitalization modalities:

  • Microneedling – Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, involves the use of fine gauge needles to puncture the surface of the skin. Tiny wounds are created as a result, triggering the body’s natural healing response.
  • Radiofrequency energy – RF energy can be delivered into dermal tissue to cause controlled thermal damage, which kickstarts restorative processes. 

At MOMADerm, we offer RF microneedling with the Secret™ PRO device by Cutera. This advanced RF microneedling device is designed to safely and effectively:

  • Minimize acne scars
  • Tighten lax skin on the face, neck, and body 
  • Smooth away wrinkles
  • Reduce stretch marks

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

Microneedling with radiofrequency works to rejuvenate the skin through controlled microwounding. The microdamage caused by the device’s needles and the RF heat initiates natural regenerative processes, including the production of elastin and collagen, to promote tighter, smoother, firmer, and healthier-looking skin.

Am I a Candidate for RF Microneedling?

When performed by a qualified dermatologist like Dr. Charles, RF microneedling is suitable for all skin tones and skin types and can be used throughout the face and body. If your concerns include acne scarring, sun damage, and/or signs of aging like wrinkles and mild-to-moderate skin laxity, you may be a good candidate for RF microneedling.

Your candidacy for RF microneedling can be determined during your initial consultation after Dr. Charles examines the treatment area and reviews your medical history. Depending on your needs and desired outcome, Dr. Charles may recommend pairing RF microneedling with CO2 laser resurfacing to maximize improvements.

What to Expect During an RF Microneedling Procedure

In most cases, microneedling with RF treatments take between 30 and 45 minutes. To begin, the skin in the treatment area will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be applied to numb the site.

The RF microneedling handpiece will then be placed over a section of skin in the treatment area. The microneedles will perforate the skin, and as they do, RF energy will be emitted via the needles to heat the deeper dermal layers. You may feel a temporary sensation of warmth due to the RF heat. This process will be repeated until the entire targeted area has been treated.

When the RF microneedling process is complete, a nourishing serum can be gently massaged into the skin.

RF Microneedling Recovery and Aftercare

There is minimal-to-no downtime after RF microneedling. However, some patients experience redness and/or swelling for 24-48 hours post-treatment. Temporary skin sensitivity may also occur but will resolve within a day or two.

It is important to follow all aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Charles to ensure optimal healing and results. You will need to avoid sun exposure while the area heals, and you may be advised to use specific skincare products for a few days to enhance your results.

How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?

The cost of your RF microneedling treatment will depend on the concerns being addressed and their severity. The price associated with your personalized RF microneedling treatment plan will be reviewed with you during your consultation.
