Cupid’s Needles – RF Microneedling
It is undeniable – February is a month for love! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we are all in the mood to celebrate our love for our partner. But what about self-love?!
There is no better time of the year than the last few weeks of winter to give your skin some well-deserved TLC and work towards that perfect glow for the warmer months.
The RF microneedling treatments at Skin Wellness Dermatology are designed to help you rediscover your natural beauty and help you fall back in love with your skin. Find out what these treatments involve and their benefits in this guide.
How Does RF Micro-Needling Work?
Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling – sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy – is an innovative cosmetic skincare procedure that rejuvenates your skin and helps you rediscover your natural beauty.
Without the need for invasive or surgical procedures, microneedling targets use radio-frequency waves to target the inner layers of the skin. The handheld RF device aims to picture the skin and create micro-damage to old skin cells.
This triggers the body’s natural healing process, which involves the emergency production of collagen – a naturally-occurring protein that covers an essential role in maintaining the skin young, elastic, healthy, and supple. While the normal release of collagen in the skin slows down as we age, RF microneedling stimulates a renewed production that can help your skin regain its youthful look.
What To Expect From The Micro-Needling Procedure
At Skin Wellness Dermatology, RF microneedling procedures are performed by one of our experts, using special gold-plated handheld devices that mount microneedles, no longer than 0.5-2mm. These Cupid’s needles gently penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production by delivering radio-frequency waves.
As non-surgical skin-tightening and facial rejuvenation procedures become more and more in-demand, RF microneedling offers you a non-invasive solution to restore the beauty of your skin. Here’s what to expect:
- Most people require 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired results
- Each treatment should be scheduled between 6 and 8 weeks after the last one
- An expert technician will instruct you on how to prepare for the treatment
- Your skin might be particularly sensitive for a few hours after the treatment
- You might be required to take oral antiviral or antibiotic medicines if you have ongoing acne breakouts and cold sores.
- The procedure won’t last longer than 10-20 minutes
- After the procedure, you should look after your skin by applying ice packs and wearing sunscreen
The best candidates for RF microneedling are people in good health looking to reduce the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, mild sagging skin, scarring, and sunspots. Book your initial consultation with Skin Wellness Dermatology to learn more about your options.

What’s more, RF microneedling can efficiently tighten the skin, thus improving loose and sagging skin that might appear due to aging and bad posture. Among the greatest benefits of RF microneedling is that this procedure can help you achieve all this without surgical or invasive procedures.
