Radiofrequency (RF) Micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure which rejuvenates facial skin with tiny needles and radiofrequency waves.

This technique helps maximize each result as it combines the power of micro-needling with radiofrequency heat.
RF Micro-needling helps improve signs of wrinkles, aging and fine lines as well as scars. This treatment is not just for concerns caused by aging, it can also help skin flaws caused by sunlight exposure and acne. RF Micro-needling helps reduce the appearance of sun damage, age spots, discoloration and stretch marks. It also helps repair acne scars.
During the procedure the handpiece will slide over the desired treatment areas during the procedure, repeating until the desired result is achieved. Small pinpoint scabs are to be anticipated 24 – 72 hours post-treatment and will naturally disappear when the inherent skin has healed. The results of the procedure become noticeable after your second round of treatment. It is recommended that patients undergo 3-4 treatments for the best results. Allow a total of 3 months following your last treatment for the final end results as the treated skin requires time to fully heal.
