What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling or radiofrequency microneedling, is a treatment that uses radio frequency waves.
These snazzy high-tech needles release radio frequency into the dermis of the skin, heating the cells up to rejuvenate the skin.
It stimulates collagen production and tightening of the skin. It treats skin laxity, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks, effectively.
This procedure is also referred to as Microneedling RF or fractional radio frequency. It is safe to use on both face and body.

RF Microneedling FAQs
RF Microneedling combines the benefits of Microneedling with radiofrequency to reach deeper layers of the skin. It is suitable for individuals with more significant skin issues, offering a robust alternative to traditional Microneedling.
RF Microneedling may cause mild discomfort during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated by most individuals.
Microneedling results are not permanent, as the natural aging process continues. However, it can be long-lasting with proper maintenance and periodic touch-up treatments.
After this period, muscle activity gradually returns, and wrinkles may reappear. To maintain the desired results, follow-up treatments are usually recommended.
