Radiofrequency Microneedling: Look Younger Without the Pain and Downtime of Surgery

Revolutionize Your Anti-Aging Routine: How Radiofrequency Microneedling Can Give You Youthful Skin Without Surgery’s Hassle

Are you tired of seeing those grooves and wrinkles caused by too much sun or the aging process? Both can do a number on your skin, leaving it looking like a roadmap. Perhaps you have unsightly acne scars. Today’s modern technology can minimize many skin imperfections to the point where they’re barely discernible or not visible at all.

You’ve no doubt heard of microneedling as a cosmetic treatment for the skin, but now there’s a new technique to this popular treatment: radiofrequency microneedling.

Sherri Casey, MD, at Northshore Skincare is trained in the latest cosmetic treatments to enhance your appearance and give your skin a youthful, dewy glow. She offers minimally invasive radiofrequency microneedling at our office in Covington, Louisiana.

This popular procedure allows you to return to work the day after your treatment versus enduring the prolonged recovery period a facelift involves.


Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling can improve a variety of skin imperfections:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Crepey skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Sagging skin
  • Large pores

RF microneedling is also a safe treatment for almost all skin types.


RF microneedling, just like traditional microneedling, produces tiny “micro-injuries” in your skin. The injuries are sustained in the under layer of your skin, the dermis, rather than the epidermis, which is the surface layer.

First Dr. Casey gently cleans the targeted area of your skin. She also places a topical numbing agent on the area to ease discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Casey applies the RF microneedling handheld device against your skin; it then creates a number of micro-injuries to the under layer of your skin. When the dermis is disturbed this way, enzymes between the cells in your skin tissue begin to break down the old tissue and form fresh tissue.

The radiofrequency device uses special flow needles that send radiofrequency heat energy into your dermis. The radiofrequency heat energy stimulates growth factors in your skin cells. The release of growth factors leads to the production of new collagen that starts healing the micro-injuries.

The process tightens any sagging, lax skin. If you have scar tissue, the RF microneedles help to break down the cells in the area while new cells with fresh collagen replace it. The new collagen plumps up facial grooves and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.

The outer layer of your skin isn’t damaged, so recovery is quicker than with laser skin resurfacing treatments or many chemical peels.

One study published in the National Institutes of Health Library of Medicine shows that patients who had four treatments one month apart had up to a 400 percent increase in collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep skin looking smooth and supple.


Ice packs can ease any discomfort after treatments. You may have minor swelling in the treated area for a couple of days and your skin might feel warm or itch, but these issues usually resolve within two days. Always wear sunscreen in the treated area when it’s exposed to sun.

You won’t see results immediately; as old skin cells disappear and new ones replace them, you’ll see final results in about 12 weeks. You’ll have long-lasting results, but your body continues to age, so you may need a refresh treatment after a year or so.
