Fractional RF Needling

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How is RF Microneedling Different from Other RF Treatments?

Most other RF treatments deliver energy to the surface of the skin. In contrast, RF microneedling delivers RF energy below the skin surface, enhancing collagen production and skin cell regeneration for deeper, more effective results.

Who is a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

Good candidates for RF microneedling should be in good health, exhibit signs of skin aging, and have realistic expectations. This treatment can address all skin types and colours, including tanned skin. However, individuals with active cold sores, skin infections, skin diseases like psoriasis, undergoing chemo or radiation, taking anticoagulant medications, pregnant, or having a history of poor scarring or wounding, are not suitable candidates.

Does the RF Microneedling Procedure Hurt?

The microneedling device uses ultrafine, sterile needles that puncture the skin causing minimal damage. To ensure your comfort, Face and Body Adelaide applies a topical numbing cream to the areas to be treated 30-45 minutes before your procedure.

What Are the Risks?

Possible side effects include peeling, itching, acne flare-ups, and cold sore outbreaks. However, these risks are generally minimal and temporary.

Is There Any Downtime?

Post-procedure, you can expect some inflammation, swelling, and redness similar to a sunburn lasting for 24-48 hours. Minor pinpoint bleeding and bruising may also occur. It’s crucial to follow aftercare instructions, including wearing sunscreen and avoiding sun exposure. Refrain from applying makeup for 24 hours post-treatment.

How Many Sessions Are Needed?

The number of treatments required depends on your skin’s condition and the specific concerns being addressed. Face and Body Adelaide will recommend a personalised treatment plan, typically involving 3 to 4 sessions for optimal results. Touch-up treatments can help maintain these results over time.
