Traditional Microneedling vs RF

Traditional microneedling and RF (Radiofrequency) microneedling are both minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that involve the use of tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin.

However, there are some key differences between the two: 


Traditional microneedling uses a handheld device with fine needles that are manually rolled or stamped across the skin. RF microneedling, on the other hand, combines the use of microneedles with radiofrequency energy. The RF energy is delivered through the needles, heating the deeper layers of the skin.

Depth of Treatment

Traditional microneedling typically targets the superficial to mid-layers of the skin, depending on the needle length used. RF microneedling can penetrate deeper into the skin, reaching the dermis, where the collagen and elastin production is stimulated. 

Collagen Stimulation

Both treatments stimulate collagen production, but RF microneedling has the added benefit of delivering radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. This combination of microneedling and RF energy can enhance collagen remodeling and provide more significant skin tightening effects. 

Skin Tightening Effects

RF microneedling is known for its skin tightening benefits due to the radiofrequency energy that is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. This can help improve skin laxity and firmness, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking skin tightening effects.
