Microneedling with radio frequency is an advanced cosmetic treatment which uses tiny needles and radio frequency for skin rejuvenation. Skin is not damaged rather new skin resurfaces which thicker and more smooth than before. This procedure addresses skin conditions like fine lines and wrinkles. The best feature of microneedling with radio frequency is that it is not time taking but boosts collagen buildup in large quantities. This is minimally invasive and non-abrasive as compared to other advanced skincare techniques.
Such advanced skin treatments are best guided by dermatologists and skin practitionars. In order to better understand how microneedling works, lets go through a step-by-step guide for microneedling with radiofrequency.
A professional cosmetologist will assess your skin for this process and map out the best way to carry out this procedure according to your face’s shape. If you have acne breakouts, you will have to take antibiotics and incase of cold sores, you may have to take antiviral medication as well.
Here is an overview of the process:
Step 1: Your skin is cleaned with alcohol to prevent infection.
Step 2: A topical anesthetic is applied to your skin where microneedling will be performed. An injectable local anasthesia is used in some cases.
Step 3: The microneedling device punctures your skin and creates tiny holes. A radiofrequency pass from the tip of the needle into your skin through those holes.
Step 4: An average of 20 minutes are taken to finish this process. In case of extreme skin conditions, it may take a bit more time.
Step 5: Growth solution helps in regeneration of new skin, whereas, a soothing solution provides comfort after the procedure.
Microneedling is helpful in renewing your skin with the added benefit of radiofrequency which aids in deeper skin resurfacing and skin tightening. This procedure targets following skin conditions:
- Fine lines

This minimally invasive skin procedure can also improve the way your skin looks. Research has proven that it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles from one’s face and the results last much longer than other damaging skin treatments. It also helps in reduce sagging skin around the facial area. A 2018 study published in NIH showed that microneedling with radiofrequency reduces pore size and improves skin texture.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which skin causes excessive sweating. It has been found in recent years that with microneedling radiofrequency, this condition can be permanently treated. The procedure causes the size and number of sweat glands to reduce drastically. First-hand reviews of customers show similar findings that microneedling is working wonders for their skin without being abrasive or damaging to the skin.

Tip#1: In case of swelling, apply ice packs to the swollen area.
Tip#2: After treatment, your skin will become extremely sensitive to UV so remember to wear sunscreen.
Tip#3: If your healthcare provider recommends antibiotics or emollients, remember to use them regularly.

Based on the type and extent of your skin condition, the results of this procedure can become apparent any time between 3 to 6 months after treatment. Usually clients take four sessions of microneedling treatment depending upon skin quality. Acne-prone skin may even need five sessions to get desired results. Each session is carried out after 4-8 weeks so that your skin gets time to rest in between sessions and somewhat heal from the procedure. Once sessions are finished, the results can stay for as long as one year. To make the results last even longer, you can get regular touch-ups from your skin practitioner.
