RF or Radio Frequency Microneedling is a revolutionary take on the classic Microneedling procedure. Using RF technology, we are able to address common skin issues along the face and body, including:

- Issues to the Skin’s Tone & Texture
- Superficial Blemishes
- Light to Moderate Scarring
- Acne & Acne Scarring
- Moderate to Severe Surface Abrasions
- Dry Skin
- Skin Lacking Moisture & Hydration
As we age, our collagen stores are constantly depleted and tend to slowly have an effect on our skin and its health & outward appearance. Due to environmental damage, and the facts of aging the loss of vital compounds like collagen and elastin cause the skin to lose precious volume and hydration. This leaves the skin dry, flaky and without its soft, supple, texture and its youthful glow. Collagen is vital to essential look, feel, and structure of our skin.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Microneedling itself is a process also known as collagen induction therapy, which uses small needles to penetrate the skin’s surface and spur the body’s natural healing mechanism. Similar to classic microneedling, the RF device has micro-needles that penetrate the skin, however, Rf energy is then directed through the needles into the skin. This allows for superficial improvement in acne scars, tone texture, wrinkles and more.
By combining the classic microneedling procedure with RadioFrequency technology we are able to effectively treat any number of skin issues from the inside-out. Our specially designed RF Microneedling apparatus delivers concentrated RF energy beneath the skin’s outer layer, into the inner layer known as the Dermis. This is the layer that is responsible for the production of our skin’s collagen and its stores. The heat energy delivered to the dermis via RF stimulates the product of natural collagen for weeks at a time. This has a profound effect on our skin and causes amazing changes to our skin’s tone and texture. The added collagen restores lost facial volume, filling up the spaces that create wrinkles and fine lines. And help to restore and rejuvenate the skin, providing much needed hydration and moisture to the skin’s inner and outer layers. This leaves the skin soft, supple, and free of surface blemishes or abrasions, while restoring that youthful glow.
