Educate Your Patients: The Benefits & Side Effects of RF Microneedling

Far less invasive than traditional elective surgeries, RF microneedling rejuvenates the skin with minimal downtime.

Boasting benefits in versatility, efficiency, and comfort, this rapidly popularizing technology is valued and sought after for its proven, lasting results without the pain and downtime of conventional methods. Whether you’re considering expanding your practice to include RF microneedling or educating current patients on the technology, here’s a helpful breakdown of its benefits and side effects. 

RF Microneedling Explained

RF microneedling revitalizes the skin by creating controlled micro-injuries and  stimulating the healing process as collagen, elastin, and heat-induced fibroblast activity produce new, tighter skin.

This in-demand aesthetic treatment only continues growing in popularity due to its ability to improve the look of acne scarring, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, and more—with minimal downtime.

Use Cases for RF Microneedling

RF microneedling targets the full spectrum of skin pigments, types, conditions, and areas, including improving the look of:

  • Acne Scarring
  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles 
  • Stretch Marks 
  • Loose Skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Eyebags & Festoons
  • Cellulite
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Jowls

Benefits of RF Microneedling

From minimal recovery time to lasting results, RF microneedling offers an array of benefits to users—making it not at all surprising its market size of $505.3 million is projected to grow 7.7% annually through 2030.

Here are several reasons why you should consider adding this technology as a patient offering at your practice: 

Tailored, Versatile Treatments

Leading RF microneedling platform VirtueRF is FDA-cleared for use with 0.5MHz, 1MHz and 2MHz, and utilizes three handpieces (Smart RF, Deep RF, and Exact RF) for more tailored precision and versatility than any other microneedling product.

Less Treatment & Recovery Time 

Compared to chemical peels, dermabrasion, and facelifts, which require anywhere from seven days to three months for complete recovery, RF microneedling procedures take 10 minutes to an hour at most, with only a day of recovery time.

This is partly due to its minimally invasive technology and two auto modes cutting treatment times by up to 30%.

Less Invasive, More Patient Comfort

A combination of Robotic Precision Delivery (RPD), Sub-Pulse Technology, three handpiece, and a cooling plate delivers a controlled, smooth experience. Exclusive post-care products provide soothing after-care to eliminate redness.

Treats Scarring & Hyperhidrosis

RF microneedling helped correct acne scarring in about 59% of surveyed patients after one month, and 100% of patients after three.

The treatment is also effective for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, rosacea, cellulite, and other conditions.

Lasting Results

Enduring around 12 to 18 months—and continuing to improve even six months after treatment—RF microneedling produces longer-lasting results than botox (three or four months), dermabrasion (one month), and chemical peels (one to two months).

Its non-invasiveness makes annual patient touch-ups incredibly convenient.

Side Effects of RF Microneedling

While RF microneedling generally boasts an all-around more convenient user experience, as with any procedure, some may experience mild side effects, including:

  • Dryness
  • Swelling
  • Tingling Sensations
  • Redness
  • Pain (Depending on RF Microneedling Device)
  • Itching
  • Mild Acne Flare-Up
  • Cold Sore
  • Scaling
