RF Needling

Skin Tightening, Lifting & Strengthening

If your skin is scarred, wrinkled, sagging or pigmented, RF Needling may be the perfect treatment for you. RF Needling is a revolutionary treatment for skin tightening and rejuvenation, utilising a combination of radio frequency and percutaneous needling to induce collagen production and tighten elastin fibres.

During the procedure, a device with a set of tiny needles is used to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These needles also deliver radio frequency energy to deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen production to tighten skin.

Radio frequency skin tightening heats up the skin tissue, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential components of healthy skin. The micro needling part of the procedure further encourages the production of collagen by creating micro channels that stimulate the body’s natural healing response.

This treatment is highly recommended for saggy skin, if your in need of a neck lift (turkey neck), to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and it can also improve the texture and tone of the skin, and reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

Non-surgical facelift

A common result of skin ageing is that it presents multiple problems, from the superficial skin layers down to in depth skin trauma, from sagging to pigmentation. We use RF Needling to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process and generate new skin cells. As a result, the skin’s texture is improved, skin layers are repaired in-depth and tissues are lifted and strengthened.

RF Needling results

RF Needling is different from other skin tightening treatments because it simultaneously treats the skin’s surface as well as the deeper layers of the skin. The results appear within just a few days. Thus, it addresses concerns such as skin sagging, enlarged pores, stretch marks, scars and acne scars, improvement of skin tone and elasticity, wrinkle reduction, reduced hyperpigmentation and reduction of nasolabial folds (lines from your nose to your mouth).

RF Needling FAQ's

RF Needling is a revolutionary treatment for skin tightening and rejuvenation, utilising a combination of radio frequency and percutaneous needling to induce collagen production and tighten elastin fibres. It also helps with textured scarring, pore refinement and skin rejuvenation.

Radio frequency needling uses micro needles to deliver radio frequency energy (heat) directly into various depths in the skin causing a controlled wound response. This creates a chain reaction in the skin to create new collagen fibres which helps to reduce pitted acne scarring and age concerns.

The procedure involves 6 or more treatments over the course of 2-4 week intervals, depending on the skin type/concern.

Treatments can last 10-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

The results will show reduction in textured scarring, improvement in pore size and firmer skin in treated areas. Results can take 1-6 months to be noticeable however most people see a change after their 2nd or 3rd treatment.

The length of results will vary person to person. As we age, naturally our skin loses laxity so with this loss of laxity, the appearance of scarring and pore size can (but not always) start to become slightly visible again.

Yes, maintenance treatments are suggested every 6-12 months to ensure the longevity of results from the treatment plan.

RF Needling uses a different needling handpiece to MicroNeedling, with a greater range of depths and more control for different parts of the face where the skin is thicker, enabling it to safely treat deeper layers of the skin for more effective results.

RF Needling also pairs MicroNeedling with radiofrequency energy, which is very effective at stimulating collagen at various layers of the skin for more anti-ageing benefits.
Growth factor injections is a fantastic treatment to combine with RF needling as they both complement each other; By having RF needling prior to having Growth factor injections, it creates tiny microscopic holes in the skin so that the growth factors can penetrate the skin deeper.

By having growth factor injections combined with RF needling, you will experience better and faster results. The growth factors is working on strengthening your skin structure whilst the RF needling is working to heat and contract the elastin fibres to improve texture. Results will last much longer as the skin will be strong and youthful.

The RF needling works at the same depths than what your typical “resurfacing” lasers can go, without any downtime. Prior to having RF needling technology, the only options available for scarring and pore refinement were laser treatments that had 3-7 days’ downtime, which would require 6-8 weeks in between treatments. The other benefit of RF needling is the ability to adjust the depth of the needle tips throughout the treatment, it is important to focus deep & superficially to maximise results.

Skin must be prepped on a pigment inhibiting product 2-4 weeks prior to starting. Sun protection must be worn at all times, even if not in direct sun exposure

You may have some redness for about 24 hours after treatment. Some of the treated areas might have a little bit of minor swelling, which also normally resolves the next day.

Any area on the body can be treated. Surgical scars, acne scars, enlarged pores.

Anybody who is prone to keloid scarring or on certain medications cannot be treated.

From $400-$650 depending on the size of the area treated ($360-$585 in a package)
