RF microneedling harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to give you firmer, younger-looking skin. It uses your skin’s own regenerative powers to trigger tighter, more even-toned skin with fewer lines and wrinkles. This popular skin-rejuvenating treatment offers powerful results with no recovery time.

What is RF Microneedling?
At Winter Park Plastic Surgery, we use the Genius™ RF system for microneedling treatment. RF microneedling uses tiny needles that create micro-channels in the skin. The radiofrequency (RF) energy uses heat to cause controlled micro-damage to the deeper layers of the epidermis. The skin responds to this damage by producing healing and growth factors that promote immediate skin regeneration.
Both forms of micro-damage also trigger the skin cells to produce more collagen. Collagen makes up the structure that supports our skin and keeps it lifted and firm. As we age, the skin loses collagen, resulting in laxity and sagging. By stimulating collagen production, RF microneedling uses the body’s own collagen to tighten and improve the skin.
What Can RF Microneedling Treat?
The new collagen can lead to improvements in almost every aspect of the skin. RF microneedling can treat issues including:
Each person will need a different number of treatments depending on their needs and the results they want. For general skin rejuvenation, three treatments may be sufficient to stimulate collagen production, although some people will need more. You may need three to six treatments to address issues like acne scarring or pigmentation concerns.
What Results Will I See With RF Microneedling?
Most people will start to see results within a few months as the skin produces new collagen. Results will continue to improve with ongoing treatments. Most people will need a maintenance treatment once a year if they want to hold onto their results. Maintaining healthy collagen production benefits your skin.
Is There Any Downtime With RF Microneedling?
You can return to your regular routine after treatment. You may have some redness and soreness that will resolve on its own after a few days. You can apply makeup starting the day after treatment. You will need to wear sunscreen after treatment and avoid sun exposure as much as possible since your healing skin is very sensitive to UV rays.
Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
The Genius™ RF works on all skin types, making it safe for almost anyone. If you have an active breakout or flare-up of a skin condition, you may need to wait until it clears up before treatment.
