What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure that uses a roller of fine needles that we will glide over the skin. These tiny needles cause micro-trauma to the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. This also triggers the production of collagen and elastin, which help keep skin firm. However, this procedure is a little different because it also uses radiofrequency, which can target deeper layers of tissue for more dramatic rejuvenation.
What Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Treat?
Radiofrequency microneedling may be ideal for you if you are looking to treat,
- Fine lines and wrinkles

- Other scarring
- Sagging skin
What Should I Expect?
It’s essential for our patients to know what to expect before undergoing radiofrequency microneedling. When you come into our office, we will clean the skin and apply a topical anesthetic about 30 minutes to one hour before your procedure. Once the skin is fully numb, we will begin the microneedling and radiofrequency session. The treatment only takes about 10-20 minutes, depending on the area we are treating. Once the treatment is done, we will apply a special solution over the skin to reduce any discomfort. You’ll be able to go back to your routine immediately after.
When Will I See Results?
Since it takes time for the body to produce more collagen, most individuals see results between 3-6 months after treatment. Most individuals can benefit from several sessions (the average number of sessions is four). Of course, how many sessions you undergo will depend on your treatment goals and the problems you’re looking to treat. Most results last about one year.
If you are a healthy individual who wants to begin treating those early signs of aging, then radiofrequency microneedling may be right for you. If you want to find out if you’re a good candidate, call Scott Sanders Dermatology at (845) 499-2017 to schedule a consultation.
