What is Microneedling RF?

Microneedling, known as a mechanical process, uses fine needles to puncture the skin, promoting natural healing and collagen production for youthful skin.
Microneedling RF combines this with radiofrequency (RF) technology. As microneedles enter the skin, they deliver RF energy deep within. This duo not only speeds up healing but also enhances collagen and elastin production. Additionally, the RF introduces thermogenesis, intensifying skin rejuvenation.
This advanced method surpasses traditional microneedling in depth and efficacy, providing a holistic approach to skin betterment.

Benefits of Microneedling RF

  • Deep Treatment: Penetrates the skin more deeply than traditional microneedling, reaching layers that other treatments might miss.
  • Enhanced Collagen and Elastin Production: By introducing RF energy, the production of collagen and elastin – crucial for skin elasticity and youthfulness – is substantially boosted.
  • Thermogenesis: The heat-driven response from RF energy leads to improved skin tightening and rejuvenation.
  • Reduced Downtime: Although it’s a deeper treatment, recovery time is generally shorter compared to other invasive procedures.
  • Versatility: Addresses a range of skin concerns, from wrinkles and fine lines to uneven skin texture and sagging.

Types of Microneedling RF

Microneedling RF devices differ primarily in the method of RF energy delivery and the technology employed. These variations determine the depth, precision, and range of treatment. Here are some of the primary technological distinctions:

Utilises two points of contact to treat the skin at specific depths, making it suitable for targeting particular skin layers.

This type emits RF waves through a single electrode, allowing for deeper skin penetration and offering a more extensive range of treatment.

Devices like BTL Exion fall under this category. They employ monopolar RF in a fractional approach. By treating tiny sections of the skin at a time, they achieve precision. The monopolar aspect ensures deeper penetration. Notably, BTL Exion offers the flexibility of both insulated and non-insulated needles, allowing for a tailored treatment experience that can address a wide range of skin concerns.

While certain devices feature only one type, there are versatile devices, like BTL Exion, that offer both. Insulated needles deliver RF energy only at the tip for targeted treatment, while non-insulated needles emit RF throughout their length, treating a broader skin area.

Advanced devices come with adjustable needle depths, empowering practitioners to tailor the treatment based on individual skin types and concerns.

Treatment Areas

Microneedling RF isn’t just limited to facial treatments. Its versatile nature allows it to address a wide range of skin concerns across different parts of the body. Here are the primary areas and indications that can benefit from this advanced procedure:

  • Face:
    • Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
