If you are seeking safe ways to improve your complexion and attain a youthful glow while avoiding the hassle of invasive surgery, RF microneedling may be the right treatment path for you. At White Pearl Medical Spa, located in Des Plaines, IL, our professional cosmetic team offers patients innovative microneedling technologies and serum infusions to minimize skin imperfections and achieve beautiful results.
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, utilizes many tiny, fine-gauge needles to penetrate and cause micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the production of two naturally occurring proteins in the skin: collagen and elastin. Increased collagen and elastin production causes new skin cell development and improves your complexion’s overall health and appearance.

RF microneedling treatments are conducted within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms at White Pearl Medical Spa and take approximately 30 – 60 minutes to complete. Each treatment area is sanitized and numbed with a local anesthesia. If the patient is opting for a PRP infusion, a sample of blood will be taken via syringe to create the serum. The RF microneedling device is then passed over each treatment area. Once the micro-injuries are administered, a topical serum is applied to the skin, followed by a moisturizer. Patients can return home day of treatment with little to no downtime.
Our team will provide each patient recommendations on how to prepare their skin for their upcoming RF microneedling session. Examples may include:
