RF Microneedling & Microneedling FAQs
RF microneedling (also known as radiofrequency microneedling or collagen induction therapy) is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy. The device has fine needles that are used to create microscopic punctures in the skin. As the needles penetrate the skin, they deliver radiofrequency energy into the underlying tissues. This energy heats up the tissues, causing them to contract and stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production.
The procedure improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone and texture. It can also be used to tighten and lift the skin on the face and body, and to improve the appearance of stretch marks.
The procedure is usually done under topical anesthesia and it takes about 60-90 minutes. The needles are inserted into the skin at a depth of about 0.5 to 2 mm, depending on the area being treated and the desired results.
After the procedure, the skin may be red, swollen, and slightly bruised for a few days. We have observed that it has a faster recovery time compared to traditional microneedling, with clients healing in about one day after this treatment, and two for traditional microneedling.
The healing time varies depending on the individual, and the number of treatments required also depends on the client’s concerns and goals. Typically, patients undergo a series of 3-4 sessions, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
RF microneedling can improve the appearance of:
- fine lines
- acne scars
- uneven skin texture
- sun damage
The procedure stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin, which can help to plump up the skin and smooth out wrinkles and scars.
People receiving RF microneedling may notice an improvement in their skin’s texture and tone within a few weeks of the procedure. Collagen and elastin production takes time, so improvement in wrinkles, acne scarring, and overall skin texture may be seen in several weeks or even months. Depending on your goals, we recommend multiple sessions in order to maintain and build upon the results. For your convenience, Bellanova Beauty Lab offers value packages on multiple RF microneedling and microneedling treatments.
The main difference between RF microneedling and regular microneedling is that RF microneedling uses radiofrequency energy in addition to microneedling.
The added radiofrequency energy helps to tighten and contour the skin, improve skin elasticity and provide additional benefits in wrinkle reduction and pigmentation improvement.
In summary, microneedling is a procedure that uses needles to create microscopic channels in the skin, to stimulate collagen production. RF microneedling is a procedure that uses both needles to create channels in the skin and radiofrequency energy to heat up the tissue to stimulate collagen production and improve the skin elasticity and tighten it.
It’s also important to follow aftercare instructions to prevent infection, and protect your skin from sun exposure and other environmental stressors, to help ensure optimal results.
Eligibility for RF microneedling is determined on a case-by-case basis and can depend on a person’s skin type and skin condition, and of course their individual aesthetic goals. In general, RF microneedling is considered safe for most adults with healthy skin. However, people with certain medical conditions, such as autoimmune diseases or a history of keloid scarring, may not be good candidates for the procedure.

The downtime after RF microneedling can vary depending on the individual and the intensity of the treatment.
Generally, people can expect some redness and swelling in the treated area immediately after the procedure. This typically subsides within a few hours to a day. The skin may also feel tight and dry and may appear slightly pink or red for several days following the procedure.
Most people can return to their normal activities the same day or the following day after receiving RF microneedling, although it’s best to avoid strenuous exercise, and sun exposure and to avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours to allow the skin to heal.
Some people may experience slight peeling or flaking of the skin a few days after the procedure. This is generally mild and can be managed with gentle skincare products.
It’s important to avoid sun exposure, and excessive sweating and avoid using any exfoliating, harsh, or active skincare products during the healing process. We will provide you with post-treatment instructions and recommendations on the correct products to use to ensure a smooth and fast recovery.
