Radio Frequency Microneedling Q & A

What is radio-frequency microneedling?

Elite Dermatology uses the Lutronic RF system for radio-frequency microneedling. This unique high-tech machine has a small group of insulated small-gauge needles that create controlled coagulation zones below your skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin formation. The new collagen and elastin then create new skin support, firming your skin and erasing fine lines and even scars.

How can radio-frequency microneedling help me?

Radio-frequency microneedling is an effective treatment for many different concerns, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Poor skin elasticity
  • Lack of volume

In many cases, radio-frequency microneedling is a great choice for facial rejuvenation when you’re starting to notice signs of aging. It can help you roll back the clock and restore your youthful glow without surgery.

How does radio-frequency microneedling treatment work?

Your Elite Dermatology care provider typically applies a topical analgesic before your treatment. Once your skin is numb, your care provider uses the Lutronic RF handpiece to create tiny punctures in your skin. Most patients find the process quite comfortable thanks to the anesthetic, but you may feel a bit of temporary discomfort in highly sensitive places such as the under-eye area.

The handpiece has multiple rows of tiny needles each, for a total of up to 49 small punctures at a time. Your provider can customize the depth of the needles and the number of needles used based on your needs. Once the needles penetrate your skin, they move into the lower skin layers.

The Lutronic RF delivers fractional heat to trigger coagulation below the skin, which starts your body’s healing process, including collagen and elastin growth. Because the skin punctures are so small, your top layer of skin heals quickly and doesn’t sustain any lasting damage.

The whole treatment can take only 45 minutes, and there’s generally no downtime afterward. You can resume wearing makeup after 48 hours.

How many radio-frequency microneedling treatments do I need?

It varies by situation. Many patients enjoy improvement after only one Lutronic RF treatment, but for optimal results and full rejuvenation, you may need a series of treatments. Many patients love this treatment because it stimulates their own new collagen and elastin, which is completely natural.
