Fractional RF Micro-needling Technology

A minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin

how fractional rf micro-needling works

Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment that has been used for decades to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles or pins creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as skin resurfacing.

Fractional RF micro-needling adds the element of radiofrequency energy to the traditional micro-needling procedure. The RF energy is delivered via small needles into the dermis. In addition to the benefits seen with the micro-injury provided by the traditional microneedles, RF micro-needling also delivers RF energy deep into the dermis further enhancing skin tightening and scar reduction.


The most common treatment areas are the face, neck, and chest. In addition, areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring are also ideal for this treatment. Microneedling with RF improves:

  • Deep lines and creases
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Skin laxity (sagging or jowls)
  • Irregular skin tone & texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Vertical lines on chest

The microneedling with RF technology is effective for all skin types and tones, including sensitive skin and dark tones. It is safe for healthy individuals, unless you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or experiencing an active skin infection.

Before your service, your spa practitioner will use the cool & heat handpiece on your skin to minimize any discomfort during your treatment. Because it desensitizes nerve endings, most patients describe the treatment as virtually painless — like a mild heating sensation with an occasional, fleeting zap from the micro-needles quickly passing over the skin.

After microneedling with radio frequency, your skin will be red and slightly tender, much like a sunburn. Also, you may have tiny pinprick marks on your skin that crust and flake off. The redness usually dissipates within 24-48 hours depending on the deepness of your treatment. Most patients return to work or resume social activities after one day.

For three days after your Microneedling with RF treatment:

  1. Avoid direct sun exposure and wear protective sunblock every day
  2. Do not use make-up on the treated area
  3. Avoid outdoor activities and intense work

Results may be achieved in as little as one treatment. For optimal outcome, we recommend a series of three treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.

Visible results from RF microneedling can be seen within a few days. Because the skin’s elastin tightens during the treatment, some guests will even see immediate improvement.

Typically, collagen renewal requires approximately six weeks, after which you’ll see noticeable results. Improvements will continue up to three months post-treatment. Results are permanent and your skin will continue to age from its new point of improvement.
