All About Radiofrequency Microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate facial skin.

Like traditional microneedling, RF microneedling uses a device that contains hundreds of very short, very thin needles to create microscopic injuries in the skin, which stimulates cell regeneration. RF microneedling, however, also uses radiofrequency technology, which heats the skin and helps tighten it.

The heat from the device actually remodels collagen and the depth of the needles create a controlled injury to promote elastin cells to regenerate, smoothen, and tighten the elastin fibers of the skin


Microneedling uses a fine needle to create microwounds, or channels, in the skin. This triggers the production of capillarieselastin, and collagen. It’s also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy.

If the procedure also uses radiofrequency waves, it’s called radiofrequency microneedling. The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of standard microneedling. 

The skin that grows back is thicker and smoother. This can target:

fine lines


stretch marks

appearance of large pores

acne scars

scars from injury or surgery


loose, sagging skin
