With many new radiofrequency microneedling treatments emerging, it’s set to be the next big aesthetic trend! It’s a procedure that cleverly treats wrinkles and tighten the skin at the same time. From facial rejuvenation and scars to cellulite and excessive sweating, radiofrequency microneedling has many different benefits!

What is radiofrequency microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling cleverly utilises two completely different in-clinic procedures into one double whammy of a treatment with the benefits of both.

Microneedling involves tiny sterile needles that puncture the skin at different depths to cause very small wounds. Your skin then promotes collagen production to fix these wounds, prompting better skin quality. 

Radiofrequency is a technology that heats the dermis, also promoting collagen production and tightening the skin. Combine these treatments together into one device and you get radiofrequency microneedling – a treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy at different skin depths through microneedles.

What results can be achieved with radiofrequency microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling technology can be used all across the face and body to improve lines and wrinkles, skin texture, scars (such as acne scars), stretch marks and sagging skin. 

As it’s your own body that is remodelling your skin, results are subtle and not usually seen immediately, developing over several months. 

Several sessions are often needed, depending on the treatment area and type of device used. Your aesthetic practitioner should take before and after images so that together you can monitor the progress of your skin’s journey.   

What are the risks of radiofrequency microneedling?

Common side effects that people experience from a radiofrequency microneedling treatment include mild pain and temporary redness during and after the procedure. Marks from the needle pricks may also be present on the skin after treatment, which can last several days.  

There is a risk the treatment will cause pigmentation changes to the skin, especially in patients with darker skin types. People with darker skin can be successfully treated with radiofrequency microneedling, although practitioners might employ extra measures to prevent post-treatment pigmentation such as recommending a specific skincare routine before and after or they might lower treatment settings. 

There is also a chance of burns, infection, scarring and prolonged swelling following treatment.

What types of radiofrequency microneedling treatments are available?

There are many radiofrequency microneedling devices available in the UK. Some of the most popular treatments include FractoraInfiniIntensifINTRAcelMorpheus8 and Profound. The newest devices on the market are the Potenza and Secret RF technologies. 

Ask your practitioner what device they choose and how it might be able to help your individual skin concerns.
