What to Expect with RF Microneedling


RF Microneedling is a highly sought-after minimally invasive treatment that can help improve the appearance of skin in many different areas of the body. It is one of many cosmetic procedures available at Galiderm Aesthetics.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling, also known as radiofrequency microneedling, is a cosmetic procedure that combines the tiny punctures of microneedling with the therapeutic powers of radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate the skin and promote collagen regeneration. This treatment can help improve the appearance of various skin problems, including;

  • wrinkles
  • fine lines
  • stretch marks
  • acne scars
  • hyperpigmentation
  • surgical scars
  • hyperhidrosis (excess sweating)
  • loose skin
  • cellulite
  • large pores

Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with a skincare expert at Galiderm Aesthetics regarding your cosmetic goals and your health status to determine if you’re a good candidate for RF Microneedling. Depending on your skin type and condition, your practitioner may recommend specific pre-treatment preparations, such as avoiding sun exposure, discontinuing certain skincare products, or taking medications to minimize discomfort.

RF Microneedling can be performed on many areas of the body, but it is most commonly used on the face and neck.

What to Expect During the Procedure

To minimize discomfort, a topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to your skin before the actual microneedling treatment starts. The level of discomfort can vary from person to person, but many patients describe the sensation as tolerable.

During the RF Microneedling procedure, your practitioner will use a device that combines tiny, sterile needles with RF energy. The device creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin’s surface while delivering RF energy to the deeper layers. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, promoting skin tightening and overall rejuvenation.

This device will puncture your skin with many tiny needles as it passes over the treatment area.

What to Expect After the Procedure

After treatment, you can expect some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. These effects usually subside within a few days. Some patients may experience mild bruising, but this is a more rate occurrence compared to the above results.

Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours, and you can use ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort. You should also limit or completely avoid sun exposure and follow post-treatment instructions provided by your practitioner.

Serious complications are rare but can include infection, scarring, or changes in skin pigmentation. It’s important to choose a reputable provider, like Galiderm Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery,  and follow post-treatment instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications.

What Results to Expect

While you may notice some initial improvements in your skin’s texture and tone within a few weeks, the full benefits of RF Microneedling often become apparent over the course of several months. Collagen remodeling takes time, and you may require multiple sessions, usually spaced several weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
