What’s the Difference Between RF Microneedling and Microneedling? | Rochester Skin Experts Explain

Microneedling is one of the best skin rejuvenation treatments available, and RF microneedling is a form of it that is growing in popularity. But what’s the difference between the two? The skin professionals at Envision Aesthetics explain below! 

What is the difference between RF microneedling vs microneedling? 

Essentially, RF microneedling is a step above traditional microneedling. 

RF stands for radiofrequency, a versatile technology used in everything from iPads and microwaves to very low strengths in non-invasive skin and body contouring treatments! 

According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health, radiofrequency is a form of thermal energy generated from an electromagnetic current. This energy can heat tissues and encourage new collagen production, renewing your skin from within and helping concerns like texture and skin laxity.

Microneedling is a form of manual skin rejuvenation. Instead of renewing skin with laser energy, microneedling uses many tiny microneedles to create “micro-injuries” in the skin. These small injuries are controlled and purposeful; they cause your body’s natural wound healing response to kick in, increasing skin cell turnover, producing new collagen, and more. 

RF microneedling combines both of these techniques for even better results for skin rejuvenation.
