How RF Microneedling Works

At Functional Wellness & Aesthetics, we utilize the radiofrequency microneedling system with Rohrer Aesthetics’ PiXel8-RF. This allows us to perform non-surgical skin tightening using bi-polar radiofrequency energy and minimally invasive microneedles that drive heat deep within the patient’s skin layers.

The heat stimulates and remodels collagen and prompts the elastin cells to regenerate. These proteins are the body’s natural healing agents. They repair new and old scars, blemishes, enlarged pores, and uneven pigments—all while tightening skin! The treatment requires little to no downtime and results in a skin surface that is firmer, smoother, and more even.

Benefits of RF Microneedling

This minimally invasive treatment is an incredible alternative to surgical facelifts, with little to no healing time. Further advantages of RF microneedling include:

  • Boosted healing for new and old scars
  • Firmer, more resilient skin
  • Increased collagen production
  • Tightens loose facial skin
  • No downtime
  • FDA clearance
  • Quick and comfortable procedure
  • Can be used anywhere on the body

Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

Unlike lasers and chemical peels, which may cause hyperpigmentation on darker skin types, the RF microneedling is safe for everyone. Anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin is a good candidate, as this cosmetic procedure is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments available. RF microneedling can be used anywhere on the body.

Although RF microneedling is safe for most people in good health, it may not be the right choice if you are pregnant, have a history of poor wound healing, cold sores, severe skin disease, and/or hypertrophic scarring, or are currently taking certain acne medication or blood thinning medication.

RF Microneedling FAQs

During a normal microneedling treatment, thin needles are used to create tiny holes in the top layer of the skin. When the skin reacts to this damage and starts the healing process, it produces extra collagen and elastin, thus improving the skin’s surface appearance.

RF is short for radiofrequency, which is a type of heat energy. Rohrer Aesthetics’ PiXel8-RF microneedling with heat is designed to deliver high-intensity energy deep into the targeted tissue area, boosting cell regeneration and remodeling collagen from the inside out. This added step leads to firmer and smoother skin than needles alone. In addition, this treatment is meant for tissue coagulation and hemostasis to improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and striae.

Most people report little to no discomfort during their RF microneedling treatment. Though everyone’s pain threshold is different, those who feel some discomfort tolerate it well, describing it as a slight sting or mild burning sensation. Some patients also experience pinpoint bleeding, which is normal and nothing to worry about. If pain is a concern, please let us know! We can use a topical numbing cream/anesthetic to ensure your maximum comfort during treatment.

RF microneedling results are long-lasting, with its rejuvenating effects enduring from 6 months to a year. After this time, we may recommend a top-up treatment. Depending on your unique skincare goals and target areas, we may recommend multiple treatments initially, spaced several weeks apart. During your consultation with Functional Wellness & Aesthetics, our team will go over your unique treatment plan and answer any questions you may have.

After your RF microneedling procedure is complete, care for your skin by following these aftercare tips:

  • Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours
  • Use a gentle cleanser when needed
  • Apply ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort
  • Remember to wear sunscreen for several weeks after your treatment, as your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun
  • You may be prescribed antibiotic creams or emollients
