RF Microneedling

What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a low-invasive cosmetic procedure that reduces wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and uneven skin tone. This newly-introduced rf microneedling treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to assist in skin rejuvenation, providing gentle resurfacing of the skin using your body’s own natural healing response.

Radiofrequency microneedling is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses short-pulse radiofrequency to stimulate collagen & tighten skin. Each microneedle electrode delivers more heat to collagen resulting in more skin contraction and less bleeding compared to other radio frequency treatments.

Some visible tightening results will appear immediately after treatment. Collagen & elastin fiber remodeling appears gradually over 2-3 months. Radiofrequency microneedling is similar to a mini-facelift, but is far less invasive and traumatic. 

What Type of Machine Does Skin Solutions use?

Skin Solutions uses Scarlet Rf at our Brentwood, TN location, which is a type of microneedling treatment that uses short-pulsed radiofrequency. The speed of the Scarlet Rf handpiece and preset treatment modes make it one of the premier devices in the field of cosmetics and aesthetics.

At our Hendersonville, our trained professionals use Vivace Radiofrequency Microneedling. Vivace combines microneedling, radiofrequency, and LED light to deeply and precisely stimulate collagen and elastin and improve skin quality in a way that other microneedling modalities cannot.

Who Can Benefit From Treatment?

An Rf microneedling treatment is safe for everyone from age to age. This treatment is ideally suited for those who are young, relatively healthy and have early signs of aging. Although the rf microneedling procedure is typically considered highly secure, it has risks. Patients who suffer from skin infections, have moderate to severe skin diseases, poor wound healing, or active breakouts of cold sores should avoid this treatment.

Does RF Microneedling work on all skin types?

Unlike most laser treatments, Rf microneedling is safe and works on all skin types: I, II, III, IV, V, and VI. Rf microneedling coagulates total dermal layers to rejuvenate total skin without any pigmentation. Rf microneedling selectively heats total dermal layers to rejuvenate skin without any risk of epidermal pigmentation changes.

How to Prepare for a Radiofrequency Microneedling Treatment

At Skin Solutions Dermatology, you can discuss your skin’s history with your provider in detail. It is necessary to disclose a person’s cosmetic background prior to the surgery, including any prior cold sores, reactions to light, laser, or other similar treatments.

How does Rf Microneedling work?

The microneedling technique is made of 25 ultra-fine heated needles with high energy that penetrates the upper layer to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and regenerate elastin. This procedure works irrespective of other facial treatments for every skin type and at any time of the year.

Even though rf microneedling is not extremely difficult, the patient will first apply topical numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable.

During the treatment of numbing a patient, the specially insulated needles are divided into several sections. Rf microneedling involves the use of radiofrequency with microneedled devices and the release of radiofrequency energy from the tips of the needle into the deeper layers of the skin. It helps reduce skin inflammation on the face while improving overall skin health and texture.

What should I expect after the treatment?


At Skin Solutions Dermatology, an rf microneedling treatment typically results in 1-4 days of downtime, depending on the amount of micro-crusting that occurs.

With minimal downtime, you will be red for about 12-48 hours immediately after your microneedling treatment, but this is simply because of the body’s natural healing process.

For some patients, there might be slight bruising. The real results from microneedling build over time, as new collagen and elastin are produced and sent to the treatment areas.


For optimal results, Skin Solutions recommends at least three rf microneedling treatments to improve skin texture for most patients. For acne scarring, 3-6 treatments could be necessary for collagen production to treat scars.

At Skin Solutions Dermatology, our professionally trained providers will consult with you on the correct number of treatments for you and your skin! With rf microneedling, your healthy new skin continues to improve for up to six months and the effects are long-lasting.

Rf Microneedling with PRP

Rf Microneedling with PRP is a procedure that uses a microneedler and Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP. We obtain PRP by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube.

This sample is centrifuged to separate your plasma, which we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells.

Plasma contains a high concentration of platelets, stem cells, and growth factors. Platelets help your tissue heal and grow new cells.

 When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create and supercharges the benefits!
