Have you wondered how to refresh your skin for a more youthful, healthy glow?
Have you noticed uneven tone and texture, scarring, lines, or wrinkles?
While surgical interventions and many other procedures can help reduce the appearance of various skin concerns, the downtime and potential discomfort associated with invasive procedures are typically undesirable. RF Microneedling at BB Aesthetic is suitable for most skin types and offers noticeable improvements in a shorter time with far less recovery than plastic surgery.
What is RF Microneedling?
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that helps improve the skin’s appearance by increasing collagen production. RF Microneedling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. Microneedling treatments are most effective for someone who wants to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, and other signs of aging.
Microneedling works by stimulating your skin to naturally produce more collagen. The pinpricks from the device used during your treatment “damage” the skin, leading to a mild injury. Your skin and body respond to this injury by making new, healthy, collagen-rich tissue. Consequently, you improve the texture, tone, and appearance of your glowing skin.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for RF Microneedling?
RF Microneedling is for all skin types. An ideal candidate for RF Microneedling is anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and scars.
Although the treatment is safe for almost everyone, there are a few concerns that could indicate that Microneedling is not suitable for you at this time. If you have an active infection or severe acne, you should allow those conditions time to heal before undergoing a Microneedling procedure. Also, suppose you have issues with wound healing. In that case, you will want to notify your aesthetician before scheduling your procedure to ensure Microneedling is the appropriate procedure to address your skincare needs.
What Can Microneedling Treat?
RF Microneedling is a versatile, minimally invasive procedure. An ideal choice for a wide variety of skin concerns, including large pores, scars, stretch marks, sun damage from UV rays, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.
How to Prepare for RF Microneedling?
Before RF Microneedling Appointment
Before your appointment, avoid alcohol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, and products containing salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is an ingredient found in some facial cleansers. By doing so, you may prevent bruising.
Let your BB Aesthetic medical provider know if you are taking or have recently taken blood thinning medication as the medication may increase bruising or bleeding after your treatment.
Before your RF Microneedling procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin for approximately 45 minutes. Once the treatment has been completed, your Microneedling procedure will begin. The process typically takes about 40 to 60 minutes.
After RF Microneedling Appointment
One of the benefits of RF Microneedling is that recovery time is minimal compared to more invasive procedures. Most patients resume a normal routine within 24 hours. Some patients may experience mild side effects, such as mild skin redness, swelling, slight bruising, and mild pinpoint bleeding.
After your RF microneedling appointment, remember to daily apply your:
- Weightless, transparent, easy-to-apply SPF 56 sunscreen stick
- Sheer creamy SPF 70 sunscreen lotion
- Creamy SPF 75 sunscreen lotion with a hint of color
- Weightless, transparent, silky, smooth, elegant SPF 56 sheer compact or SPF 68 with a hint of blendable color
Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun during this time.
Apply ice packs to reduce discomfort.
Avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours.

How Many Treatments are Needed to Achieve Results?
While some individuals see improvement after one or two treatments, we typically recommend two to four treatments. Your collagen production will increase and skin will improve after the first treatment. Patients will often experience the best results three to six months after the first procedure. Your BB Aesthetic medical provider will recommend a treatment plan based on your unique conditions.
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is an excellent option for anyone looking to achieve radiant, youthful, beautiful skin without surgical or invasive skin treatment procedures. Microneedling can help you achieve healthy and glowing skin without pain or discomfort. Microneedling is safe and effective for all skin types.
