Understanding the Basics of Radiofrequency Microneedling

RF microneedling, also called radiofrequency microneedling, uses radiofrequency energy to refresh your skin. It’s commonly used to improve skin texture, treat scars (including acne scars), and tighten sagging skin.

RF microneedling can make a more youthful appearance by helping your cells regenerate and improving skin tone and texture.

Before microneedling treatment, there are a few essential steps to prepare.

Before microneedling treatment, there are a few essential steps to prepare.

The Microneedling Treatment Process

The Radiofrequency microneedling treatment process is straightforward and effective for addressing various skin concerns, including acne scars and skin tightening.

Before the treatment begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure comfort during the procedure. The microneedling device has tiny needles that poke into the skin, making tiny wounds. This helps the skin heal itself.

Radiofrequency RF energy goes into the skin as the needles penetrate. This makes collagen and elastin. This helps improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and tighten sagging skin. The skin is monitored throughout the session for any discomfort or adverse reactions.

Salicylic acid is often used alongside the microneedling procedure to address early signs of skin issues.

After treatment, they might put on a cooling gel to calm your skin. They'll also give you instructions for aftercare to get the best results.

RF Microneedling Procedure: Post-Treatment Care

After the radiofrequency microneedling procedure, proper post-treatment care is crucial to minimize potential side effects.

  1. Avoid touching or scratching the treated area for the first few days to prevent infection and stimulate proper healing.

  2. Use gentle skincare products your provider recommends to keep your skin clean and moisturized.

  3. Protecting your skin from sunbathing is vital, so apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily.

  4. Avoid harsh skincare products or treatments, such as chemical peels or exfoliants, for at least a week afterward to prevent irritation and allow the skin to heal correctly.

  5. If you experience discomfort or notice any unusual signs, such as redness, swelling, or itching, contact your healthcare provider promptly.

  6. Follow any specific instructions provided by your aesthetic specialist regarding follow-up appointments or touch-up sessions to maintain the results of your treatment.

Proper post-treatment care allows you to enjoy smoother, firmer, and healthier-looking skin after RF microneedling. While most patients notice improvements after one treatment, multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve the desired results.

Additionally, touch-up sessions may be scheduled as needed to maintain the benefits of the treatment over time. Overall, RF microneedling offers a safe and effective solution for achieving smoother, firmer, and healthier-looking skin.

Benefits of RF Microneedling  Treatment Area


Radiofrequency microneedling offers numerous benefits for improving skin health and appearance. It benefits individuals with severe skin conditions, promoting skin healing and rejuvenation.


One of the benefits of RF microneedling is its ability to promote cell regeneration.


By stimulating elastin production, it helps improve elasticity and firmness, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


During a microneedling session, a local anesthetic is often used to minimize discomfort, making the procedure more comfortable for individuals undergoing chemotherapy or have other medical conditions.


Overall, microneedling treatment can benefit anyone looking to enhance their skin’s texture, tone, and overall health, regardless of their specific skin concerns or medical history. 


Rf microneedling has shown promise in promoting skin healing even for severe skin disease. With a microneedling session, your skin can heal faster and more effectively.

Comparing RF Microneedling with Other Treatments

Radiofrequency Microneedling vs. Traditional Microneedling

There are fundamental differences when considering RF versus Traditional Microneedling for treating acne scars or uneven texture.

RF microneedling utilizes radiofrequency waves to deliver heat energy deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting healthy new skin. This advanced technology allows for more precise and controlled treatment, making it suitable for individuals with severe skin conditions, poor wound healing, or hypertrophic scarring. Additionally, RF microneedling typically requires fewer sessions to achieve desired results than traditional.

On the other hand, traditional microneedling involves:

  • Using microneedling devices with tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin.

  • Promoting collagen induction therapy and improving wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars.

While both treatments can improve skin quality and appearance, Radiofrequency microneedling may offer more significant and long-lasting results with fewer sessions.

However, factors such as skin type and treatment goals should be considered when determining which option is best for you.

Radiofrequency Microneedling vs. Laser Therapy

There are distinct differences when comparing RF microneedling with Laser therapy for addressing skin concerns like acne scarring.

RF microneedling treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy delivered through tiny needles to stimulate collagen production and promote skin healing. This approach is beneficial for individuals with severe skin conditions, as it minimizes the risk of skin infection and allows for more precise treatment targeting.

Additionally, RF microneedling is suitable for all skin types and tones, even those with a history of radiation therapy or sunbathing.

On the other hand, laser therapy involves using concentrated beams of light to target specific areas of the skin, which may be less effective for treating deep scars or improving overall skin look.

While both treatments can improve wrinkles and enhance skin appearance, RF microneedling may offer more natural-looking results with fewer sessions needed.

Safety and Side Effects of RF Microneedling

There are some factors to consider, especially for those taking blood-thinning medication. Radiofrequency microneedling may cause mild side effects such as:

  • Temporary redness

  • Swelling or sensitivity in the treated area.

These side effects typically subside within a few days and can be managed with a topical anesthetic or cold compress.

Individuals undergoing chemotherapy should consult with their healthcare provider before experiencing Radiofrequency microneedling to ensure it is safe and appropriate for them.

This procedure offers minimal downtime and can be performed on the entire face or specific areas. It’s essential to follow post-treatment instructions provided by healthcare specialists to minimize the risk of complications and ensure optimal results.



Less pain and fast recovery

Technicians can precisely target a surface area by adjusting the amount of energy from 0.5mm to 3.5mm and prompting dermal coagulation using the advanced penetration mechanism.

Optimal and uniform thermolysis

The PiXel8-RF system has an optimal amount of space between the microneedles. As a result, the RF energy will be uniformly distributed throughout the target area and will evenly coagulate without the risk of interference caused by nearby, overlapping RF energy.

Precise and safe treatment

Rohrer Aesthetics designed the PiXel8-RF system with an Enhanced Delay function that helps eliminate post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) by safely delivering the precise amount of heat necessary to stimulate the growth of collagen in the tissue.Two options allow for precision targeting: the insulated RF needle tip delivers energy only at its tip, while the non-insulated fractional RF tip delivers energy to the epidermis, dermis, and subdermal tissue all at once.

Fast and convenient operation

The PiXel8-RF is easy to operate and user-friendly, with a 15-inch touch interface in full color. The system has various inspection and cleaning modes. Plus, the guided-user interface provides an avatar system to apply a precise energy level and penetration depth to the patient’s tissue for proven results. Go between thick areas and thin areas with ease, thanks to the convenient twist knob located on the handpiece that allows you to adjust penetration depth without ever pausing the system.
