Microneedling With Radio Frequency

Face and body imperfections like wrinkles and fine lines are some of the many cosmetic issues that can occur as we age. Many patients who desire smooth and youthful skin without having to undergo plastic surgery can benefit from microneedling with radio frequency. 

Microneedling with radio frequency, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates visible signs of aging to rejuvenate the skin and improve your overall appearance.

  • Uneven skin texture
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks 
  • Creases on the neck 
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Enlarged pores

Microneedling With Dr. O’Neil

Microneedling with radio frequency is performed as an outpatient procedure and can take between 30 minutes and one hour, depending on the amount of correction needed. During your treatment, the device will emit RF (radio frequency) energy through the insulated micro-needles to gently deliver small amounts of heat to various layers of the skin. This will create a mild thermal injury to the skin, stimulating healing and collagen production. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for microneedling?

Patients who are concerned about superficial skin concerns can benefit from microneedling. Ideal candidates must be in good health and have realistic expectations for their results.

What will my recovery be like?  

Because microneedling is performed on an outpatient basis, you can return to your regular activities immediately following your procedure. Make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen and avoid direct exposure to sunlight to protect your skin.     

What results can I expect after my microneedling treatment?

Following your microneedling treatment, your skin will start to heal as collagen production increases and new skin cells are generated. You will notice immediate results, and your skin will look and feel smoother.

How many microneedling seasons will I need?

While some patients can achieve beautiful results in just one appointment, others may need multiple sessions to achieve their cosmetic goals. The number of treatments you need will be determined by the condition of your skin. This will be discussed during your consultation.
