RF MicroNeedling

RF MicroNeedling

RF (RadioFrequency MicroNeedling) is a powerhouse treatment option. It combines using tiny skin punctures and radiofrequency energy to improve the skins’ texture, laxity, complexion and quality. This minimally invasive treatment is extremely effective. This treatment’s combination of traditional microneedling methods with radiofrequency energy will affect your deeper tissues and create dramatic changes in your skin. It is said that one RF microneedling treatment is the equivalent of roughly 8 pen-based microneedling treatments.

This treatment is often used in conjunction with other modalities to address scarring. Whether the scars come from surgical wounds or traumatic injury, they all have a unique anatomy. This means that in order to improve their appearance you might need to treat them from multiple angles.

RF Microneedling is also a great choice of treatment for stretch marks.

A series of three treatments is recommended to achieve the best outcome. This one is a game changer!
