Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Non-Surgical Face Microneedling Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Microneedling has been a popular way to rejuvenate your skin and improve signs of aging for many years. You can achieve even greater results by pairing it with another potent skin rejuvenation treatment, RF energy. Radiofrequency microneedling at the Langdon Center makes it easy to feel confident in a clear, glowing complexion.

What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling, or RF microneedling, reduces wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other skin concerns. This innovative treatment combines the benefits of microneedling with the therapeutic power of radiofrequency energy. RF microneedling causes controlled microdamage using ultra-fine needles while simultaneously delivering precise doses of heat. 

The microdamage and heat trigger the body’s innate wound-healing process, increasing the production of collagen and elastin fibers. Collagen and elastin gradually deteriorate due to age and sun damage, and our bodies produce less and less over time. Treatments like RF microneedling that stimulate the production of these essential proteins have an anti-aging effect on the skin. 

This combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy can treat various skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage and dark spots
  • Acne scars
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Hyperpigmentation

Though RF microneedling is most often performed on the face, neck, and decolletage, it can also be used on the body. A series of treatments may help fade stretch marks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your radiofrequency microneedling treatment at the Langdon Center will be performed by Dr. Langdon or our aesthetic specialist, Maria Koursaris, and should take approximately 30-45 minutes. First, we’ll cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream so you won’t feel any pain.

Once your skin is numb, we will move the handheld microneedling device over the treatment area. The hair-thin needles will create tiny punctures in your skin, and the device will emit radiofrequency energy that penetrates through these punctures into the dermis. You may feel warmth or a slight prickling sensation.

You can resume your usual activities immediately after an RF microneedling treatment. However, your skin may be slightly red and swollen for a day or two. Be sure to keep it clean and moisturized, using gentle products and avoiding harsh chemicals, rubbing, or exfoliation. You should also be especially careful to limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen while your skin heals.

RF microneedling doesn’t require any downtime, though some patients take a day of social downtime due to redness and swelling. We’ll tell you how to care for your skin after the treatment and what to expect.

Many patients notice a brighter, clearer complexion within two weeks of an RF microneedling treatment. However, the full effects develop gradually as your body produces more collagen and elastin over time. Optimal results will be visible after a few months.

We typically recommend a series of treatments for the best outcome, especially if you’re addressing deeper issues like acne scars or stretch marks. After four or more sessions spaced a few weeks apart, you’ll see structural improvements and firmer, more elastic skin thanks to improved collagen production.

The results of RF microneedling generally last one to two years. The longevity of your results depends on how many sessions you have, the intensity of the treatment, your skin condition, and your skincare routine and lifestyle. Proper skin care and healthy habits can help preserve your results. You can also return for maintenance treatments as needed.

Almost anyone seeking to rejuvenate their skin is a good candidate for this treatment. Radiofrequency microneedling is typically safe for all skin types and tones. There are various skin conditions that RF microneedling can improve, so the treatment is an ideal option for many patients. During a detailed consultation, Dr. Langdon will analyze your skin and discuss your goals to help you determine if RF microneedling is right for you.
