Rejuvenate Your Skin with RF Microneedling Treatments

By: Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz


Microneedling is a popular treatment for patients looking to rejuvenate their skin and tackle multiple concerns at once. Adding radiofrequency (RF) energy to a microneedling session can further boost the results of the treatment and give patients glowing, healthier, younger-looking skin from the inside out. Committed to using only state-of-the-art, safe, and effective technologies, dermatologist and aesthetic skincare specialist Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz and the dedicated team at VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Wellesley, MA are proud to perform RF microneedling with the highly advanced Sylfirm X module. Get your journey to a more radiant complexion started by discovering the benefits of RF microneedling below.

What is the difference between regular microneedling and RF microneedling?

Both traditional microneedling and RF microneedling involve rolling a specialized handpiece equipped with tiny needles across the skin’s surface to create micro-injuries that trigger a healing response, ultimately prompting the production of new, healthy skin cells for a smoother and more vibrant complexion. During RF microneedling, radiofrequency energy is simultaneously delivered to the skin via the fine-gauge needles contained in the handpiece. This stimulates the production of collagen fibers deep within the skin, which helps to create a firmer, tighter look and a more youthful-appearing complexion overall.

How can RF microneedling help my skin?

Common skin concerns that can be improved with Sylfirm X RF microneedling include:

  • Early lines and wrinkles
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Droopy skin
  • Dull skin
  • Sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Dry, patchy skin
  • Acne scars and other types of scarring
  • Melasma
  • Redness associated with rosacea

How soon will I see results after RF microneedling?

Most patients can expect some redness and irritation after RF microneedling as the skin heals and the tissues calm. As soon as a few days after treatment, patients may notice their skin starting to look brighter and feel smoother, though it can take several weeks for the full effects of microneedling to start becoming apparent. Over the next few months, the outcome can continue to improve as collagen induction takes place, helping to lift, firm, and smooth the skin even further.

How many RF microneedling sessions will I need?

Although some improvements can be made with a single RF microneedling treatment, optimal results are typically seen after a series of 3 – 4 treatments spaced about one month apart. After this, many patients choose to have their RF microneedling treatment repeated 1 – 2 times per year to maintain a consistently smooth and radiant complexion.

If you still have questions about how RF microneedling can benefit you and how many treatments you may need, consider scheduling a consultation so that Dr. Pomerantz can evaluate your complexion and develop a customized skin care plan just for you.
