How does Radiofrequency Microneedling work?
Radiofrequency microneedling is an FDA approved non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency to tighten loose skin. The radiofrequency (RF) energy uniformly heats the dermis while cooling and protecting the epidermis. It is designed to cause immediate collagen contraction followed by new collagen production which occurs over a period of time. *

What does the procedure feel like?
An anesthetic cream applied one hour before the procedure numbs the surface of the skin to help make the treatment more comfortable. You may feel a tingling feeling. Your physician may offer additional measures to increase your comfort.
How long will the treatment take?
Depending on the size of the area treated, the procedure itself may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. Your physician may require that you arrive an hour before your procedure for administration of an anesthetic cream. This patient had her forehead skin treated in about 25 minutes. Note the change in the appearance of her eyes.
When can I return to my normal activities?
You may return to your normal activities immediately, as there is usually no “downtime”. Minimal redness is seen in some patients but it usually disappears shortly after treatment. Heat-related complications can occur but are uncommon. There is no special care needed after treatment. As a part of good skin care, sunscreen is recommended.
When will I see results?
Full results are seen three to six months after treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
A single treatment has produced good results* in a significant number of patients. However, your doctor will assess the number and frequency of treatments required to achieve optimal results for your skin.
