RF Microneedling Q & A

What is RF microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that uses thin, sterile needles to create tiny channels into the deeper layers of your skin. As your practitioner moves the handpiece across the surface of your skin, thousands of these channels are created. 

Your body reacts to each of these tiny punctures with a prompt healing response. New collagen develops, and circulations improve in the treatment area. Incorporating radiofrequency (RF) energy into the process adds heat to the deeper layers of the skin, further enhancing these effects. 

North Valley Wellness is proud to offer the VirtueRF™ microneedling system. This technology is among the industry's most advanced microneedling platforms, and practitioners undergo additional training to learn how to make the most of these treatments. 

What kinds of skin issues can RF microneedling treat?

Microneedling with radiofrequency is a versatile treatment that can address more than one skin issue at once. Some of the conditions that are well-suited for RF microneedling include:

  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Age spots
  • Roughly textured skin

Compared to having multiple treatments to address different skin issues, RF microneedling is a great return on your investment. 

Is RF microneedling a painful experience?

All of this talk about punctures and healing might lead you to believe that microneedling is a painful process. In reality, most people find microneedling sessions easily tolerable. 

Your practitioner can apply a numbing cream prior to your sessions to reduce sensations in the treatment area. You might feel mild stinging or burning sensations as the device moves across your skin, but there is no significant pain or discomfort. 

Expect some minor swelling, soreness, and redness after your sessions. It takes your skin a couple of days to adjust, so be sure to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays and avoid using harsh products or any form of friction. 

You may see a difference in the days after your sessions, but you won’t see the full results until weeks later. Your skin needs time to create new collagen and for improved circulation to develop. Most people benefit from a series of sessions to achieve the best possible results.
