RF Microneedling vs Microneedling: Which is Right for You?

Perfect your Valentine's Day! 3 Treatments to look your best.

When it comes to achieving rejuvenated, smooth skin, microneedling has become a popular treatment. However, with the introduction of RF microneedling, it’s important to understand the differences between these two types of treatments and how they differ in uses. At Vitality Women’s Healthcare we offer a range of microneedling treatments to treat everything from stretch marks and acne scarring to healing sun damage and uneven skin tone.

Let’s explore the benefits and considerations of each option to help you determine which one is best suited for your skincare needs!

Understanding Microneedling

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves creating tiny punctures in the skin using fine needles. These microscopic punctures penetrate the layers of skin with the puncture depth varying on the specialized device used and the patient’s goals.

This process stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, leading to increased production of collagen and elastin. The result is improved skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and minimized acne scars. Microneedling is suitable for various skin types and can be performed on different areas of the body.

  • Even out irregular skin tone
  • Smooth uneven texture
  • Increases blood flow
  • Treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles
  • Heal sun damaged skin
  • Maintain skin elasticity
  • Revive dull skin

RF Microneedling: Taking It to the Next Level

RF microneedling combines the benefits of microneedling with the added advantage of radio frequency energy. The treatment involves the use of tiny sterile needles that deliver controlled heat energy into the deeper layers of the skin. By heating up the deeper skin layers, mild skin laxity and saggy skin contracts, improving the appearance of wrinkles. Due to the increase of collagen levels, you are met with youthful skin that is firmer in appearance, with less deep wrinkles.

This combination stimulates collagen remodeling, production of elastin, and enhances tissue tightening and rejuvenation. RF microneedling offers more targeted and noticeable results compared to traditional microneedling.

  • Provides all benefits of traditional microneedling
  • Tightens loose skin
  • Smooth deep scars
  • Break down scar tissue
  • Customizable needle depth

Agnes Precision RF: Targeted Solutions for Specific Concerns

Agnes Precision RF is a specialized treatment that uses radiofrequency energy and microneedles to address specific skin concerns. It is particularly effective for treating stubborn acne, enlarged pores, and under-eye bags. By precisely delivering RF energy, Agnes Precision RF helps shrink oil glands, reduce inflammation, removes fat in the jowl, jawline and under the chin, and tightens the skin. This treatment offers visible results with minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for targeted solutions.


EndyMed RF Microneedling: Comprehensive Treatment for Multiple Skin Issues

EndyMed RF microneedling is a comprehensive treatment that combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling. It targets both the superficial and deep layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening loose or sagging skin. EndyMed RF microneedling is known for its versatility in treating various skin concerns, including wrinkles, acne scars, and skin laxity.


Adjustable Depth and Versatility

One significant advantage of RF microneedling, including Agnes Precision RF and EndyMed RF, is the ability to adjust the depth of penetration. This flexibility allows for targeted treatment of specific concerns, making it suitable for individuals with more severe skin issues or those seeking more noticeable results.


Downtime and Recovery

While the natural healing process for both treatments entail an easy recovery, there is a slight difference between the two. Traditional microneedling typically results in some redness, mild swelling, and sensitivity immediately after the treatment. These effects usually subside within a day or two, allowing patients to resume their normal activities with proper skincare.

However, RF microneedling may require a slightly longer recovery period due to the additional thermal energy delivered to the skin. Patients may experience redness, swelling, and mild bruising for a few days following the treatment. Following post-treatment instructions is crucial for optimal healing.


Traditional Microneedling: General Skin Rejuvenation

Traditional microneedling is highly effective in improving overall skin texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimizing acne scars. It also aids in addressing hyperpigmentation concerns and enhances the absorption of topical skincare products. Traditional microneedling is an excellent choice for those seeking general skin rejuvenation without specific concerns requiring deeper tissue targeting.


RF Microneedling: Skin Tightening and Lifting

Radiofrequency microneedling, including Agnes Precision RF and EndyMed RF, offers the added benefit of skin tightening and lifting. The controlled delivery of RF energy stimulates collagen and elastin production at deeper levels, resulting in more noticeable skin tightening and firmness. This makes RF microneedling a preferred option for individuals with moderate to severe skin laxity.


Treatment Sessions and Results

Both microneedling and RF microneedling treatments may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. The number of sessions will depend on factors such as the severity of the skin condition being treated and individual response to the treatment. Consulting with a qualified skincare professional will help determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.


Considering Your Specific Needs

When choosing between microneedling and RF microneedling, consider your specific skin concerns and desired outcomes. Traditional microneedling is suitable for general skin texture improvement and addressing mild concerns, while RF microneedling offers the added benefits of skin tightening and lifting. Consulting with our skincare professionals will help you make an informed decision based on your needs and goals!


Cost Comparison: Traditional Microneedling vs RF Microneedling

RF microneedling procedures, including Agnes Precision RF and EndyMed RF, may have a slightly higher cost compared to regular microneedling. However, the targeted results and additional benefits of RF microneedling make it a worthwhile investment for individuals with specific concerns and goals.


So, Which One Right for You?

Microneedling and RF microneedling devices, such as Agnes Precision RF and EndyMed RF, are effective treatments for improving skin texture and addressing various concerns. Traditional microneedling is suitable for general skin rejuvenation, while a radiofrequency form of microneedling offers the added benefits of skin tightening and lifting.

Consider your specific needs, desired outcomes, and consult with a skincare professional to determine which treatment is best for you. Choosing the right treatment will help you achieve the beautiful, radiant skin you’ve always desired!
