How RF Microneedling Can Assist in Facial Contouring

RF Microneedling

Aging is an inevitable process that gradually alters the contours of the face. Over time, skin loses its elasticity and firmness, leading to a less youthful appearance. At AgelessYou Med Spa in Merritt Island, FL, we understand the desire to maintain a youthful facial contour. RF microneedling is a treatment we offer that can help address these age-related changes. By combining radiofrequency energy with microneedling, this service can rejuvenate the skin, tighten sagging skin, and improve facial contours.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a cosmetic treatment combining radiofrequency energy with microneedling to rejuvenate skin. During this treatment, microneedling stimulates healing in the skin while radiofrequency energy promotes even more anti-aging effects. This combination can improve skin texture and firmness, addressing concerns like wrinkles, scars, and laxity. It’s a non-invasive option, appealing to those seeking noticeable skin improvements with relatively short recovery times.

What Technology Does RF Microneedling Use?


Microneedling, a key component of radiofrequency microneedling, involves the use of tiny needles to create perforations, called microchannels, on the skin’s surface. These punctures let your body know that it needs to start a healing process, which prompts it to send fibroblasts to the area to begin their work. Fibroblasts produce components that support the skin and give it a more youthful and elastic texture.

Radiofrequency Energy

In radiofrequency microneedling, radiofrequency energy is the second element. This energy is transmitted into the skin through the microneedles. When the energy reaches the deeper layers of the skin, it generates heat. This heat stimulates additional collagen production and promotes skin tightening. The controlled application of radiofrequency energy enhances the overall efficacy of the microneedling process, offering more pronounced skin rejuvenation benefits.

The Potenza™ RF Microneedling Device

The Potenza™ RF microneedling device is the tool we used for our RF needling treatments. Potenza RF is different from other devices because it offers more customizable settings. It has different parameters for depth, energy levels, and frequency, so we can effectively treat a wider range of patients and concerns. It can be used for everything from wrinkles to acne scars, across different skin types. It’s also the only device that uses the Tiger Tip, a patented technology that allows the RF energy to penetrate different depths for more effective results.

How Can RF Microneedling Contour Your Face?

Reducing Sagging

RF microneedling targets sagging skin, a common concern in facial aging. By stimulating collagen and elastin production in deeper skin layers, this technique helps to firm and lift the skin. This process gradually restores a more youthful contour to the face, reducing the appearance of sagging, especially in areas like the jawline and cheeks.

Smoothing Fine Lines and Wrinkles

In addressing fine lines and wrinkles, RF needling can be very effective. The combination of microneedles and radiofrequency energy promotes skin regeneration, smoothing out these age-related imperfections. Over time, this leads to a visibly smoother skin surface, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and contributing to a rejuvenated facial appearance.

Improving Texture

RF microneedling can also enhance skin texture. The treatment’s ability to trigger natural healing processes improves overall skin tone and texture, reducing the appearance of scars, enlarged pores, and uneven skin. This results in a more refined and even complexion, contributing to a healthier and more radiant facial appearance.

Additional Benefits of RF Microneedling

  • Acne Scar Reduction: Microneedling with RF lessens the visibility of acne scars. The treatment’s precise needle penetration aids in breaking down scar tissue, while the radiofrequency energy promotes healthier skin regeneration.
  • Hyperpigmentation Improvement: Microneedling and radiofrequency are effective in addressing hyperpigmentation issues, such as age spots and sun damage. The treatment accelerates skin cell turnover and normalizes melanin distribution, resulting in a more uniform skin tone.
  • Improved Product Absorption: Radiofrequency microneedling enhances the skin’s ability to absorb skincare products. The micro-channels created by the needles increase the penetration of topical treatments, making them more effective in nourishing and rejuvenating the skin.
  • Brightened Complexion: RF microneedling contributes to a brighter, more radiant complexion. By removing the outermost layers of dead skin and stimulating underlying tissues, it reveals fresher, healthier skin with a natural glow.

Walking You Through Your Treatment

Preparing for Your Treatment

Before undergoing microneedling with RF, it’s important to prepare your skin properly. This typically involves avoiding direct sun exposure, certain skincare products, and any anti-inflammatory medications that could interfere with the treatment’s effectiveness. We will provide specific guidelines on how to prepare your skin so that it’s in optimal condition for the treatment.

During Your Treatment

During an RF microneedling treatment, a topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize discomfort. The device is then used across the entire treatment area. The duration of the treatment varies based on how large this area is and what concerns you are hoping to address. Treatment can last from 30-60 minutes depending on whether numbing cream is used. You may experience some heat and pressure, but the treatment is typically well-tolerated.

Results and Follow-Up Treatments

The outcomes of microneedling and radiofrequency treatments can be observed gradually, as the skin heals and rejuvenates over the following weeks. Initial improvement is often noticeable within a few days, with more significant results appearing over time. For optimal results, a series of treatments spaced a few weeks apart may be recommended. Your clinician will advise on the best follow-up schedule based on your skin condition and goals.
