Everything You Need to Know About RF Microneedling 646cf8a0f377c.jpeg

At SomaSou, we want every customer to feel vitality, strength, and confidence. That process begins with treatments that leave our customers looking and feeling their best. One such treatment that can help transform the way you feel about your skin is RF microneedling. While you may have heard about traditional microneedling, RF microneedling is the latest FDA-approved treatment option that provides faster results and longer-lasting outcomes. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about RF microneedling from the team at SomaSou.

What is RF Microneedling? 

RF microneedling, (radio frequency microneedling), is an advanced skincare treatment that combines traditional microneedling techniques with radiofrequency. During RF microneedling treatments, thermal energy is released deeper into the skin layers, which helps stimulate natural collagen production. How is RF Microneedling Different from Traditional Microneedling?

Traditional microneedling does not penetrate as deep into the dermal layer of the skin and does not push through any thermal energy. While still effective, patients won’t see results as quickly as with the use of RF microneedling which penetrates the thermal energy deeper allowing for faster collagen production and better penetration of your skincare.

Most clients combine these two techniques in order to create faster results with fewer treatments.

What are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

As we mentioned above, our goal at SomaSou is to have you looking and feeling your most confident self and this is why we offer microneedling treatments so that we can help you reach those goals. RF microneedling treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven pigmentation or hyperpigmentation
  • Cellulite
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Will This Treatment Hurt?

Our providers will apply topical anesthetic cream over the treated area before beginning, so you won’t experience discomfort during treatment. It takes 30 minutes to complete an RF microneedling session. After that, you may experience a little discomfort on the treated area that feels similar to a sunburn. Some patients experience redness or swelling that subsides within a few days. If you are planning to get an RF microneedling treatment, allow 24-48 hours of downtime after your appointment.
