What is RF microneedling?

RF microneedling is a clinically proven procedure that stimulates collagen and elastin. These proteins are your skin’s building blocks. As you age, your levels decline. Microneedling uses fine needles to create micro-injuries in your skin while releasing radiofrequency waves. 

Combining these two powerful treatments triggers your body’s healing response, repairing skin on a cellular level so that it grows back firmer, smoother, and more responsive. RF microneedling is minimally invasive, fast, and requires almost no downtime. 

YS Aesthetics uses the latest devices, including Scarlet SRF and Agnes RF, ensuring you have access to superior treatments.

How is RF microneedling different from laser resurfacing?

RF microneedling uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen through tiny needles, while laser resurfacing employs concentrated light to carefully remove your skin's top layer. While both procedures stimulate collagen and elastin and target signs of aging, downtime and treatment suitability may vary depending on your skin type, thickness, and specific concerns.

How can RF microneedling benefit my skin?

RF microneedling can benefit your skin in several ways, such as:

  • Improved skin texture and firmness
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhanced collagen and elastin production
  • Scar remodeling, including acne scars
  • Minimized pores
  • Tighter skin
  • Rejuvenated skin
  • Minimized stretch marks
  • More even skin tone
  • Thicker, fuller hair (when combined with platelet-rich plasma or platelet-rich fibrin)
  • Enhanced absorption of skin care products
  • Nonsurgical facelift effect
  • Minimal downtime and quick recovery

The YS Aesthetics team can combine RF microneedling with other cosmetic treatments, like dermal fillers and neuromodulators.

What can I expect from RF microneedling?

RF microneedling sessions take about 20-40 minutes, depending on the treatment area. The team may apply a topical numbing cream beforehand for your comfort. You may feel a prickling sensation as the device creates tiny skin wounds, followed by warmth from the RF energy. 

You can typically resume your normal activities after treatment, with bruising and swelling subsiding over the next few days.

When will I see the results from RF microneedling?

RF microneedling isn’t an instant treatment. You can expect to see results within 4-6 weeks as new collagen and elastin form.

How many RF microneedling treatments will I need?

Most people need at least 3-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to see visible RF microneedling results. YS Aesthetics customizes your treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals.
