RF microneedling for skin rejuvenation

At Revive RX Med Spa of Kansas City, Missouri, our team is here to provide solutions for a wide selection of medical and aesthetic skin concerns. Men and women who are unhappy with their skin texture and tone or who want to treat certain issues such as stretch marks or acne scarring may want to ask our team about the benefits of RF micro-needling treatments.

What is RF micro-needling?

RF microneedling is a treatment that utilizes insulated needles that deliver radiofrequency energy into the treatment area. This treatment ensures uniform delivery of RF energy for the best results, allowing patients to address issues such as:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks

This is because the treatment encourages collagen and elastin growth for tissue tightening right where it is needed. Many patients love this treatment because there is little to no downtime, and the procedure is comfortable and well-tolerated by most patients. The RF micro-needling device makes tiny wounds in the skin. At the same time, the tips of these needles release radiofrequency waves into the wounds.

How long does treatment take?

The procedure typically takes 10 to 20 minutes. The exact time needed depends on what you’re treating. A numbing crème is applied before treatment to decrease any discomfort.

Are there any complications that can arise?

  • redness
  • dryness

How many treatments do I need?
