What is RF microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries and deliver RF energy into the skin. It has been used to treat acne, signs of aging, and a wide range of skin impurities.

The wounds heal faster than traditional methods of skin resurfacing and can also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that help keep skin tight and responsive.

Traditional microneedling works by breaking down the outermost layer of the skin, causing natural healing properties to kick in and triggering the formation of new collagen and elastin. This process results in a younger, healthier-looking complexion. The device is primarily used on the face but can also be used in other areas, including:

  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Thighs

Spring Street Dermatology proudly offers various RF microneedling devices to enhance patient results for firmer, tighter, clearer skin.


Traditional microneedling is when a tiny needle punctures the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The treatment is ideal for subtle rejuvenation and improved skin tone and texture.

RF microneedling combines traditional microneedling with radio frequency (RF) energy to provide more drastic and noticeable results. The specialized RF energy is delivered through the needles as it creates micro-wounds in the dermis layer.

Adding radiofrequency to microneedling amplifies the healing process and production of collagen and elastin. The heat from the RF energy also helps with skin tightening and adds another element to the treatment. There are many microneedling and RF microneedling devices, including:

  • Vivace RF: A FDA-approved radio frequency microneedling device that uses 36 gold-tip needles and a robotic motor to create precise micro-injuries and gentle heat to spur natural healing qualities. It also adds customized serums to the skin to meet personalized goals and concerns.
  • Secret RF: This RF microneedling device delivers treatment to deeper layers for more noticeable results without damaging the outer layers.

LaseMD is a fractional laser device that can be combined with microneedling to treat many skin concerns like melasma, sun damage, and wrinkles by stimulating collagen and elastin production.

What Does RF Microneedling Treat?

When performed by experienced and certified dermatology experts, RF microneedling can treat a range of conditions and impurities, including:


  • Uneven skin texture
  • Skin tone or pigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Benefits of RF Microneedling

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Natural results and rejuvenated skin
  • Quick treatment and minimal downtime
  • Safe and effective treatment for skin impurities
  • Customizable treatment
  • Long-lasting results and healthier skin

What to Expect During A Treatment Session

Patients can expect a fast treatment session with minimal downtime and long-lasting results. RF Microneedling is a popular treatment for both men and women that involves using tiny needles that deliver RF energy directly into the skin to create new collagen and improve the texture. RF Microneedling treatments can be used independently or in conjunction with other treatments such as chemical peels, laser therapy, and physical therapy.

A typical RF Microneedling treatment takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the treatment area and skin condition. The process includes:

  • Cleaning the skin to prevent infection
  • Applying topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area
  • Using the RF microneedling device to create micro-wounds in the skin
  • Applying an ointment or serum to the treatment area to support cell regeneration after treatment

Patients can immediately return to normal daily activities and may experience slight side effects such as:

  • Dryness or scaling
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Cold sores

RF microneedling results in rejuvenated skin, and as the skin continues to heal and collagen and elastin are produced, patients will typically see beautiful, younger-looking skin within 3-4 months.

As we mature, loss of volume leads to wrinkles, prominent nasolabial folds, thinned lips, exaggerated jowls, and marionette lines. The natural deterioration of underlying bone and soft tissue leaves a hollowed, aged appearance. Fillers injected below the skin surface can correct age-related volume loss.
