What is RF Micro-needling?
Radiofrequency microneedling – RF microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate facial skin.
The treatment is a form of controlled skin injury. The damage stimulates the growth of healthy new skin, which can benefit common skin issues like acne scars and wrinkles.
If the procedure also uses radiofrequency waves, it’s called radiofrequency microneedling. The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of standard microneedling.
The skin grows back thicker and smoother. This can target
- Fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Appearance of large pores
- Acne scars
- Scars from injury or surgery
- Loos sagging skin
- Skin rejuvenation
Radiofrequency microneedling is considered safe, but it isn’t appropriate for everyone.
