By Pratik Patil | Date: 11/08/2323

Nowadays, many skin treatments are becoming more and more popular, including the RF microneedling procedure. This treatment promises to improve 12 different skin imperfections, which is one of the reasons it’s gaining traction among beauty enthusiasts.

However, just like any cosmetic treatment, RF microneedling or radio frequency micro needling has its share of pros and cons. In this blog post, we discuss these aspects to help you decide whether the microneedle with RF is right for you. 

What is RF Microneedling?

Before we weigh the positive and negative sides of RF microneedling, let’s give you a quick background of how it works.

Basically, RF microneedling is a treatment that combines radiofrequency technology with traditional microneedling.

First, an esthetician will use a microneedling device on your skin to create micro-injuries. These minuscule injuries will trigger your skin’s natural healing process. As it heals, your body will produce more collagen and elastin, which are crucial in keeping healthy and plump skin.

Overall, microneedling with radio frequency is a non-surgical procedure. This means that you’ll enjoy all its rejuvenating benefits without stitches or any intensive recovery period.

But here’s the thing: it’s not suitable for everyone.You’ll find out below.

Pros of Radiofrequency Microneedling

Microneedling, in itself, is not really new. It’s the addition of RF energy to the mix that made this treatment stand out. Here are the main advantages.

1.    Enhanced Collagen Production

The main benefit of RF microneedling is its ability to boost collagen and elastin production. Micro injuries and radiofrequency stimulate the release of these two substances that make the skin tighter and younger-looking.

2.    Targeted Results

RF microneedling gives you more targeted results. You can choose which areas to treat, which makes it suitable for a variety of skin problems. In fact, it can target up to 12 different skin issues like wrinkles, saggy skin, rosacea, acne, scars, and more! Since the treatment is targeted, you’ll see faster results compared to other procedures.

3.    Minimal Downtime

While we still consider micro needling with radio frequency as non-invasive, it still requires careful aftercare. But the good thing is that it causes minimal downtime. You just have to wait for the swelling and redness to subside while following other instructions that the specialist gave.

 RF microneedling session only lasts around 20 to 45 minutes. 

  1. Versatility

Another good thing that you might like about RF microneedling is its versatility. 

For example, you can get RF microneedle to tighten your loose tummy skin or lighten acne scars on your face and back. 

Overall, RF microneedling is one treatment with many uses. This is why it doesn’t come as a surprise that microneedling in Coral Gables is in high demand nowadays.

5.    Long-lasting Effects

RF microneedling results are long-lasting. It can make your skin look younger and tighter for a long since it stimulates the natural healing process of your body. 

Cons of radio frequency microneedling

RF microneedling is versatile, non-invasive, and long-lasting – what’s not to like, right? While it’s true that this treatment is highly beneficial.

1.  Discomfort

The process of microneedling will create tiny injuries on your skin, which will obviously cause some level of pain.  

Still, you shouldn’t worry because med spas that offer RF microneedling use numbing creams to help with discomfort. 

2.   Potential Side Effects

You should always remember that any cosmetic procedure has potential side effects. Nothing’s perfect, as they say.

As for RF microneedling, you should expect minor side effects like swelling, redness, and minor bruising. All these could happen in the treated area, but they will subside naturally in a matter of days.

3.    Cost

RF microneedling is also slightly pricier than other non-invasive treatments. This high cost is due to the advanced technology that med spas use to give you fast and long-lasting results.

4.    Multiple Sessions

There’s no overnight solution to skin problems, so expect that you’ll need several RF microneedling sessions to achieve the results you like. This can be a bit overwhelming since each session has a substantial cost.

5.    Not Suitable for Everyone

As we’ve mentioned earlier, radiofrequency microneedling isn’t a good choice for all people. Those with specific medical problems may have to steer clear of this treatment. Aside from that, your session may not push through if you have an open wound or active acne breakouts in the treatment area.

Who is a Good Candidate for Microneedling with RF?

To be honest, the best person to answer that question is a specialist who provides this treatment. This way, the provider can assess your skin and your health condition. They’ll be the ones to advise whether it’s safe for you to get the treatment.

In general, the best candidates for this treatment are those with mild to moderate signs of skin aging. 

On the other hand, those who have serious health problems should be extra careful.

Overall, individuals with inflammatory skin conditions or active infections could be rejected from getting this treatment. It’s best that you wait for these problems to resolve before you try booking a session.

How to Know if RF Micro Needling is Right for You

Still not sure if microneedling with RF is right for you? In that case, we discussed here some factors that you can assess to see if you’re a good candidate for the treatment. 

1.   Your Skin Concerns

First, you have to identify what skin concerns you actually want to address with this treatment. Overall, RF microneedling is good for wrinkles, saggy skin, uneven skin texture, and acne scars to name a few. 

2.    Your Overall Health

Next, you have to consider your current health condition before going for a microneedling treatment. As we mentioned earlier, you should consult your doctor first if you’re taking specific medications or dealing with a certain illness.

3.    Your Skin Type

In general, microneedling with RF is safe for almost all skin types. Still, you shouldn’t skip the consultation before you get this treatment. 

4.   Realistic Expectations

Always remember that cosmetic procedures like RF microneedling aren’t a magic potion that will clear up your skin in an instant. It takes multiple sessions and lifestyle changes to achieve good results. This is why setting realistic expectations are crucial if you’re planning to try this out.

5.    Commitment to Multiple Sessions

Again, the only way for you to achieve the best results with microneedling is to finish all required sessions. Take note that each skin concern would need a specific number of appointments, which your provider will confirm. 


Microneedling and radiofrequency combined can deliver excellent results for your skin. It can tighten saggy spots, lighten acne scars, reduce wrinkle appearance, and more. Still, the key here is finding the right provider and following their recommended treatment plan.

Also, you should always remember that RF microneedling – or any cosmetic treatment – doesn’t offer overnight results. You need to be patient and realistic to get the best outcome.
