RF Microneedling Q&A

What is RF microneedling?

RF microneedling, or radiofrequency microneedling, is an aesthetic procedure that uses small needles to puncture treated skin and boost its ability to regenerate cells and heal. Noninvasive radiofrequency energy emitted using a handheld microneedling device further boosts collagen and elastin production to achieve superior, long-lasting results. 

Wistl Skin has a highly trained master aesthetician with more than 20 years of experience on staff in addition to a board-certified plastic surgeon. 

What are the benefits of RF microneedling?

The advantages of RF microneedling at Wistl Skin include:

  • Skin revitalization
  • More collagen and elastin production 
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced stretch marks
  • Diminished acne scarring
  • Smaller pores
  • Less hyperpigmentation
  • Tighter, smoother, beautiful skin
  • Younger-looking appearance

When choosing microneedling, there’s no surgery, pain, significant risks, or downtime. You can expect dramatic anti-aging results and a boost of confidence.

Is RF microneedling right for me?

Your Wistl Skin specialist determines if RF microneedling is right for you after discussing your medical history, examining your skin, and reviewing your beauty goals and treatment preferences. They then tailor an aesthetics solution best suited to your personalized needs.

What happens during RF microneedling?

During RF microneedling procedures at Wistl Skin, your provider cleans your skin and numbs the treatment area to ensure the procedure feels comfortable. They use a small, handheld microneedling device to make tiny punctures in your skin and simultaneously emit radiofrequency waves into treated tissues to stimulate healing and new cell growth. 

Your treatment session might last about 20-30 minutes, sometimes longer, but every patient has different needs. Afterward, your provider may apply a soothing, nourishing serum to minimize discomfort and further promote cell regeneration.

What should I expect after RF microneedling?

After the procedure, you can return to your typical daily activities immediately, but expect temporary redness, tenderness, and swelling at the site of treatment. You may apply ice packs to reduce swelling and topical products to treated skin if asked to. It’s important to always protect your skin from the sun and keep the treatment areas clean. 

Over time as treated tissues heal, you can expect smoother, revitalized, younger-looking skin and a healthy glow.
