Life-Changing Results

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Our skin naturally loses vibrance and elasticity as we age, but these unwanted changes can also be caused by various environmental factors, lifestyle habits, hormone changes, and more. Whatever the reason, no one wants to see dull, damaged skin in the mirror. At Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery’s premier MedSpa, the BioSpa, we offer RF Microneedling to rejuvenate your skin and restore a healthy glow.


What is RF Microneedling?

Microneedling is a convenient, effective skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing response. This non-invasive procedure may involve a variety of devices and techniques, but they all use small, sterilized needles to cause tiny injuries, also known as microchannels. Your skin reacts with its natural healing process to repair these micro-injuries, which increases collagen and elastin production.  

With RF microneedling, radiofrequency energy is used for even greater benefits. RF energy addresses skin laxity, giving you tighter, firmer skin. Combining microneedling with the power of RF amplifies the efficacy of both. RF microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones and can be used for the face or other areas of the body.

At Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery, we strive to help you reach your cosmetic goals with the best treatment for your unique needs. During your consultation, one of our BioSpa experts will discuss your goals and examine your skin to recommend the most effective treatment from several available options. 

Learn More About RF Microneedling

Our expert team at BioSpa can offer many skin rejuvenation treatments, including multiple microneedling techniques. Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling combines radio frequency energy and traditional microneedling techniques for improved results.

During the procedure, the RF microneedling device will cause strategic micro-damage to your skin while, at the same time, radiofrequency energy will gently heat the treatment area. Your provider can adjust the penetration depth depending on your skin concerns and desired improvement. Superficial treatments are ideal for mild cases, penetrating just below the skin’s surface. A deep treatment can reach down to the dermis to address more severe skin issues. 

Your provider will apply a topical numbing cream before the microneedling session to ensure your comfort. RF microneedling is typically a convenient “lunch break” procedure, taking about 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

One of the benefits of RF microneedling is that it requires little to no downtime. Though deeper treatments may require a small amount of downtime, most people return to their regular routine the same day.

After an RF microneedling treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling. These symptoms should subside within a day or two, though your skin may feel textured or dry for a few days before your results become visible. After treatment, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so you should avoid exposure and wear sunscreen.

By themselves, microneedling treatments such as SkinPen® Microneedling and radiofrequency treatments each offer great benefits. With our state-of-the-art device, these two treatments are combined and even more effective.

The radiofrequency energy can penetrate deeper and more precisely while also boosting the effects of the controlled damage caused by microneedling. As a result, Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling can give you even better results than either treatment done alone.

It takes time for your body to increase collagen and elastin in response to microneedling, so the benefits appear gradually. You’ll likely start seeing results within a few days of RF microneedling, which will continue to improve. You may find that your skincare products are also more effective since the microneedling treatment helps your skin absorb them better, resulting in even healthier skin.

The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on the severity of your skin issues. For mild concerns, we often recommend three treatments scheduled 10-14 days apart. Six or more treatments may be needed for more severe cases.

After a series of treatments, you’ll likely enjoy a healthier, younger-looking complexion thanks to your skin’s increased collagen production. We typically recommend maintenance treatments every 6-12 months for optimal, lasting results.

RF microneedling offers beneficial skin rejuvenation that is safe and effective for most healthy adults. You may be an ideal candidate for microneedling if you have one or more of these skin concerns: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Acne scars or surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Large pores
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Skin laxity 
  • Sun damage

RF microneedling may not be the right choice if you have active skin infections or rashes, use certain medications, or if you have wound healing problems. We typically do not recommend RF microneedling for pregnant and breastfeeding patients.

The average cost of RF microneedling in the United States is $875. However, this is only a rough estimate since your microneedling treatment will be tailored to your needs. The actual cost will vary based on the size of the treatment area, the technique used, and your provider’s experience and geographic location.

Additionally, your total expense will depend on how many microneedling sessions you need to achieve your desired results. During your consultation, your BioSpa provider will help you develop a treatment plan so you’ll know what to expect. We also offer various financing options to make your treatment affordable and accessible.
