What Can RF Microneedling Treat?

For a treatment that can improve skin tone and texture, consider microneedling with Potenza™ radiofrequency (RF microneedling). This treatment can reduce lines and wrinkles, fade hyperpigmentation, and even get rid of acne scars.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

RF microneedling uses tiny needles to create areas of micro-damage just beneath the surface of the skin. This triggers the surrounding cells to immediately initiate a healing process, producing skin-rejuvenating growth factors that speed cell turnover. The microneedling breaks up hyperpigmentation and scarring, fading them over a series of treatments. RF microneedling also allows skincare products to penetrate more deeply. 

At the same time, the needles emit radiofrequency energy. This energy creates heat in the deeper layers of the skin. The heat triggers the cells to increase their collagen production. Collagen proteins give skin its firmness and support, so boosting collagen production helps to tighten and firm skin. RF microneedling stimulates collagen much more than microneedling alone since the radiofrequency energy can travel deeper into the skin. 

At The Refinery Medspa, we use the Cynosure Potenza™ RF microneedling system, which combines these two treatment methods for effective results that you can see right away, and that will continue to develop over time. 

What is Microneedling Like?

You will receive a numbing cream applied to your face before beginning treatment. This should keep you feeling comfortable throughout the procedure. A device will be moved over your face, inserting its RF-emitting needles, but you should not feel this. 

What Can RF Microneedling Treat?

Potenza™ RF microneedling can treat a wide range of skin concerns, including:

  • Skin laxity
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Signs of aging

This treatment works especially well on skin firming and the removal of acne scars since it stimulates collagen production, which can tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and many types of scars.

Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

You can receive microneedling if you do not have any health problems that would prevent it. People with active skin conditions such as acne breakouts may need to wait until their skin calms down before undergoing the treatment to avoid any discomfort or irritation. An in-person consultation can confirm if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
