What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling uses thin, sterile needles to create microscopic channels in the skin. RF energy is delivered from the needle tips, creating a uniform warming effect to the dermis. The addition of RF energy amps up results in comparison to traditional microneedling by enhancing the skin’s ability to stimulate collagen & elastin fibers & constriction within the skin. The skin becomes tightened with a reduction in the appearance of scars, texture, hyperpigmentation, pores, wrinkles & stretch marks. RF microneedling provides faster more dramatic results than traditional microneedling with no-to-little social downtime.

What is the Radio Frequency Microneedling Treatment Like?
You will be provided with a medical grade numbing cream and protocol to apply to the treatment area 1 hour prior to your treatment. This will ensure that you’re prepared for the most comfortable treatment possible. Upon arrival at Glo Skin Studio your skin will be cleansed and prepped to begin the treatment.
The treatment is relatively short but will depend on what’s being treated. Some clients report a warm sensation, prickling, stinging or slight burning sensation during the treatment, but it is not typically considered painful.
Immediately following your treatment, pure hyaluronic acid & fulvic acid are applied to hydrate and soothe the skin.
Is there Downtime with Radio Frequency Microneedling Treatments?
Almost immediately following your RF microneedling treatment, it is normal to experience some redness & sensations of tightness or dryness similar to a mild sunburn. One of the great features of RF Microneedling is that the recovery tends to be quick and easy. During your recovery, you can use cold compresses to reduce discomfort and swelling.
It’s important to be gentle with your skin as the micro-injuries heal so your body can concentrate on the healing process as much as possible. Swimming, exercise, saunas, and anything that causes sweating need to be avoided for at least 24 hours to reduce the risk of infection and delayed healing. DO NOT PICK AT YOUR SKIN, especially if the skin feels scaly.
Makeup make be worn after 24-48 hours. Mineral makeup is ideal.
While it’s always wise to avoid direct sun, it’s crucial to protect treated skin from prolonged sun exposure for 2 weeks after RF microneedling. You will need to strictly avoid direct sunlight and environments that compromise cleanliness of your skin for the remainder of the day.
When will I see Results?
RF Microneedling is best done in a series of 3-6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. Results will be visible:
– Within approx. 2 weeks: Skin will be brighter & smoother.
– Within approx. 2-4 months: As collagen remodeling takes effect, skin will be firmer & tighter while lines, wrinkles, pores, scars, hyperpigmentation & cellulite will be improved in appearance.
