RF Microneedling

Reduced collagen production is one of the primary culprits responsible for rough, wrinkled skin. Traditional microneedling devices create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface to kick-start new collagen production, but they don’t reach the skin’s deeper layers. The innovative Lutronic Genius® device we use for microneedling at our Oklahoma City practice combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to promote deeper, more dramatic skin rejuvenation.

What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the skin-tightening effects of radiofrequency energy. Genius uses tiny, sterile, insulated needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and promoting collagen and elastin production. At the same time, the microneedles deliver RF energy to the skin’s deeper layers, heating the tissue and further stimulating collagen production.

What Are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

The benefits of your RF microneedling treatment include:

Improved skin texture: RF microneedling smooths rough skin and reduces the appearance of acne scars and enlarged pores. 

Reduced wrinkles and fine lines: By stimulating collagen production, RF microneedling diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, leading to a more youthful-looking complexion.

Firmer skin: The combination of microneedling and RF energy tightens and firms the skin, resulting in a lifted and rejuvenated appearance.

Minimal downtime: Compared to more invasive procedures, radiofrequency microneedling typically requires minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your regular activities shortly after treatment.

Long-lasting results: With a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart, you can enjoy long-lasting improvements in your skin’s texture and appearance.

What To Expect During RF Microneedling

Before beginning the procedure, we apply a topical numbing cream to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the treatment. Once the skin is numb, the provider gently applies the Genius handheld device throughout the treatment area. We customize the depth of the needles and the intensity of the RF energy according to your specific skin concerns and treatment goals.

What Is Recovery Like After RF Microneedling?

Following a Genius RF microneedling treatment, redness, swelling, and minor discomfort in the treated area is normal. These side effects usually subside within a few days. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment, although avoiding excessive sun exposure and strenuous exercise for a few days is essential. Depending on your skin’s sensitivity and the intensity of the treatment, you may notice slight peeling or flaking as the skin undergoes the rejuvenation process. We provide detailed post-treatment instructions to ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery.

Combining RF Microneedling With Other Treatments

Microneedling often enhances the results of other skin rejuvenation procedures. For example, you can reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, such as worry lines and crow’s feet, with with BOTOX® or Dysport® injections to complement your smoother skin. You can also consider laser skin resurfacing instead of RF microneedling.
