RF Microneedling vs. Traditional Microneedling


Sure, you’ve heard about microneedling and the magic it can work on your skin – but what about RF microneedling? 

Microneedling has everyone from Hollywood celebrities to beauty influencers singing its praises, swearing by the way it turns back the clock on aging, and eliminates acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and other skin issues. But now that RF microneedling is on the scene, there’s a not-so-secret way to look even better and more beautiful. 

What is the difference between microneedling and RF microneedling?

Microneedling involves a trained Medical Aesthetician using an innovative micro-pen device to create microscopic channels in your skin’s surface. Then, your skin kicks off its natural repair process, ramping up collagen and elastin production. The result is smoother, brighter, and younger-looking skin, with dramatically reduced appearance of acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more.

RF microneedling takes this same process and brings it to the next level, incorporating radiofrequency into the treatment to up the ante when it comes to jaw-dropping results.

What is microneedling with radiofrequency?

As we age, our bodies shift to a much slower pace of collagen production. Unfortunately, that’s bad news for those of us that want to stay fresh-faced and wrinkle-free, because collagen is key in preventing the visible signs of aging. Other side effects of getting older run the gamut from loose, sagging skin and the accumulation of scarring. We’re guessing that none of those sound like something you want, right? Well, thanks to aesthetic technology, you can fight back with help from RF microneedling.

Microneedling with radiofrequency (RF microneedling) delivers radiofrequency energy through the miniature needles used for the traditional microneedling procedure. The RF penetrates deep layers of the skin, further supporting scar reduction, skin tightening, and elastin and collagen production. Plus, because the RF reaches deeper layers than typical microneedling, you’ll notice faster and considerably more dramatic results – talk about a win! Essentially, adding RF microneedling into your anti-aging regimen is like hitting the pause button on the hands of time… and then turning back the clock even more. Focal Point also offers RF microneedling in combination with PRP (plasma rich platelets) and growth factor serums, which deliver an impressive range of additional regenerative benefits. Since the treatment perfectly primes your skin to better absorb products, there’s no better time to treat yourself to one of our signature serums or products.

Does Microneedling with RF really work?

Let’s put it this way – if RF microneedling wasn’t effective, would the world’s most beautiful supermodels, actresses, and influencers be so excited about it? 

Think of RF microneedling as the next step up from traditional microneedling, offering you all the incredible benefits but at a much higher level. It’s microneedling with a serious upgrade and a major boost in the form of radiofrequency. 

Here’s why RF microneedling is so effective – and why it might be your best-fit choice:

  • Traditional microneedling definitely increases collagen production, but RF microneedling amplifies the process even more. Plus, the heat generated by the RF energy helps constrict the deeper layers of your skin, smoothing even the toughest wrinkles and lines. 
  • Since RF microneedling goes deeper than the standard treatment, it’s an ideal option for addressing issues that lay further below the skin’s surface – without causing any serious damage to the top layers. Also, as the RF energy enters your skin’s deeper layers, it targets collagen production and skin tightening there as well, so the effect isn’t limited to the surface alone.
  • RF microneedling is preferred for acne scars because the addition of the RF energy is the best weapon against tough scar material. 
  • The combination of RF energy and microneedling gives you more flexibility to customize your treatment. Together with one of our experts, you can decide exactly how you want to tailor the experience to tackle your biggest skin frustrations. 

There’s no other way to say it: RF microneedling is an exceptionally effective treatment for a variety of skin concerns. It can offer particularly dramatic results for Focal Point guests dealing with scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, collagen loss, and other aging signs. 

What is the best RF Microneedling device?

 When you decide to get RF microneedling, it makes sense that you’d want to confirm that your skin is being treated with a top-of-the-line device that can really deliver the results it promises. But you might be surprised to learn that if you’re zeroing in on the device, you’re asking the wrong question – after all, a tool is truly only as good as the artist using it. That means that not only should the RF microneedling device be the very best, but so should the skilled professional that’s using it.
