An Introduction to Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Woman enjoying RF microneedling
RF microneedling is an innovative aesthetic procedure that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling. Radiofrequency energy is heat used as an aesthetic treatment that tightens and lifts the skin. The energy also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the deep layers of your tissue. Many of the visible signs of aging that affect your skin develop from a decrease in collagen and elastin production. These two proteins provide your skin’s youthful structure and strength. Heights Aesthetic Laser Center offers Genius™ RF microneedling to stimulate the production of these vital proteins to restore your youthful look. 

Heights Aesthetic Laser Center uses RF microneedling to treat many common skin concerns. Some of the most common ones include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Cellulite
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Saggy, crepey skin
  • Textured skin
RF microneedling is proven to be effective for many uses:

Acne scars
In a 2014 study of 31 people, radiofrequency microneedling moderately improved acne scars in 58 percent of the participants. A small 2017 study found similar results.
Skin rejuvenation
Microneedling with radiofrequency waves can also improve the look of your skin. In a 2013 study, for example, the procedure reduced wrinkles around the eyes. The effects lasted longer than Botox injections.
A 2020 case report also shares that the treatment can reduce loose facial skin.
Additionally, in a 2018 study, radiofrequency microneedling improved skin texture and pore size.
According to a 2019 study, the procedure can permanently treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. A 2013 study found that the treatment helps by reducing the number and size of sweat glands.

With Genius, the experienced providers can treat many areas, including the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, knees, arms, and underarms. 

RF microneedling is an in-office procedure. To ease discomfort, your provider applies a topical numbing agent to your skin before treatment. You may experience mild redness and swelling after your RF microneedling session. You should be able to resume your usual activities the next day.
