What Is RF Microneedling? [Sponsored Article]

Is RF Microneedling Better Than Microneedling?

There are various innovative treatments to help minimize the effects of aging on our skin. Meeting with a specialist to discuss your areas of concern and desired outcome is the only way to decide what option is right for you. One of the most popular non-surgical treatments is microneedling, but that, too, has multiple variations. At Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center in Sacramento, CA, we offer RF microneedling to restore your youthful appearance.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a combination of two treatments—microneedling and radiofrequency. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses hair-thin needles to penetrate the skin and create micro-channels. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is the protein that provides structure to our skin, giving it a smooth and taut look. Elastin allows our skin to go back to its original shape and position after being stretched.

Radiofrequency delivers heat to the deeper layers of skin through the microneedles to further stimulate the healing process and production of collagen and elastin. When these modalities are combined, skin becomes tighter, firmer and brighter than it would with just one of these options.

Through RF microneedling, the dead and dull skin on the surface is replaced with regenerated cells, revealing a bright, smooth and rejuvenated complexion. These results are amplified because of the combination of treatments.

Adding PRP

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, can be added after RF microneedling for a greater boost to results. A sample of the patient's blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich serum from the rest of the sample. This addition enhances treatment because the PRP has stem cell-like properties to further stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

PRP and its healing properties are absorbed more easily because of the micro-channels created from microneedling and the heat created in deeper layers by RF. The synergy created from this comprehensive treatment could mean fewer sessions are needed to achieve maximum results.


Anyone who wants to diminish the signs of aging or other skin imperfections may be a good candidate for treatment. Only a consultation with your doctor can determine if this is right for you. Patients who undergo this treatment get real results in areas of concern like:

  • Diminishing fine lines and wrinkle
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Skin laxity
  • Dullness
  • Large pores

This treatment is generally done in a series of three, each spaced one month apart. Results continue to improve over time, with the best results visible six to eight weeks after the last treatment. One maintenance session every six months is suggested for seamless results.
