Microneedling is one of the most popular treatments for tackling skin concerns such as skin laxity, sun damage, fine lines, and facial scarring. The skin-care experts at Belladerm MedSpa are here to answer the question: RF microneedling vs. microneedling – What’s the difference? Keep reading.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling with SkinPen® is one of many professional services offered at Belladerm MedSpa. This treatment stimulates collagen production and actives our natural healing process. SkinPen is a handheld device that contains twelve needles that make microchannels on the treated area. This action triggers an immune response to regenerate new tissue. Without the help of heat or chemicals, microneedling successfully delivers dramatic results by remodeling dermal tissue in 3 to 6 treatments that are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.

Some of the most common skin concerns treated with Microneedling include:

  • Acne-scarring
  • Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Hyper and Hypopigmentation
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles

What is RF Microneedling?

Similarly to regular microneedling, RF (Radio Frequency) microneedling with Vivace® is a next-level treatment that adds radio frequency energy to the already beneficial service. Additionally, the RF device utilizes 36 gold-tipped needles that get precisely inserted into the skin. Synergistically applying evenly distributed heat, the Vivace device maximizes aesthetic results.

Some of the most common skin concerns treated with RF Microneedling include:

  • Scars
  • Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Hyper and Hypopigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Skin-laxity and Tightening

RF microneedling remodels dermal tissue with 3 to 6 treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart. This innovative anti-aging treatment helps us to look our best at any age by lessening uneven skin tone, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and battling skin laxity by stimulating collagen growth. With Belladerm MedSpa’s latest offering, RF microneedling is a winning combination that delivers dramatic results.

Which Treatment Should I Get?

While traditional microneedling is a great option for someone looking for an introduction to the microneedling world, RF microneedling further amplifies the process with radio frequency for added skin tightening and anti-aging benefits. Nevertheless, we always recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation with one of our skin-care experts to determine candidacy for the treatment you are considering.
