What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
In Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, Dr. Roberto Garcia and his team use a unique technique that creates beautiful outcomes for our patients using a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are well known in the cosmetic industry for their skin tightening effects. This specific sort of therapy utilizes heat to promote the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a firmer, smoother surface. With the use of Potenza™ and Tempsure® Envi technology, patients can expect the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, the diminished look of pigmentation, and improved skin tone and texture. At Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, we often incorporate this new process into our Ponte Vedra Beach, FL patients' skin treatments to produce healthier skin, a smoother feel, and a glowing complexion.

Who is an ideal candidate for RF microneedling?
If you are 40 years of age or older and are beginning to find smile lines, age spots, discoloration, and other skin flaws that include age and sun exposure, RF microneedling might be the right treatment for you. RF microneedling is a great option if you wish to:
- Tighten the skin, creating a more refreshed look
- Improve skin texture, tone, and pigment
- Repair skin imperfections, such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Minimize the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Improve acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look
How does RF microneedling work?
Microneedling uses a tool with tiny needles at the end that's rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. New skin grows as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer looking and feeling smoother, brighter, and more refreshed. Although this procedure is usually done on its own, combining this innovative technique with radiofrequency microneedling technology has enabled us to maximize the results for our patients.
This procedure is quite simple. The applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by delivering short pulses of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden microneedles. The power is delivered via the needles, which simultaneously punctures the skin and circles back the electrodes to the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that provide cumulative and continuing results.
What can i Expect after rf microneedling?
RF microneedling treatments will take place in the Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery office with the help of a numbing solution to decrease discomfort. During your appointment, the handpiece will glide over the treatment areas, repeating the process until the desired outcome has been reached. Patients should expect tiny pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours post-procedure, which will naturally shed when the inherent skin has healed. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin heals over a month after having a microneedling with RF treatment. Optimal results usually take 3 – 4 treatments scheduled 3 – 4 weeks apart.

How much does RF microneedling cost?
The cost of your RF microneedling session will vary on your condition and the number of RF microneedling treatments scheduled to deliver your ideal improvements. During your consultation, our staff will answer all your questions and estimate your total costs.
How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Every person is different, and some individuals may require more sessions compared to other people. We will take the time to perform a thorough evaluation of your skin and take into account your needs and wants to help decide the appropriate number of sessions for you. On average, many patients receive 3 – 4 procedures done four weeks apart.
What are the benefits of RF microneedling?
RF microneedling is safe and effective for most complexion tones and types, and it can be performed on almost every area of the face and body. RF microneedling treatments offer stunning improvements and minimal downtime if you are not ready for a surgical facelift or body lift. RF microneedling is also a great option if you'd like to update the overall appearance of your skin after a facelift or body lift surgery.
Does RF microneedling hurt?
Since a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area, most patients experience minimal pain during treatment. Throughout the procedure, our team will ask to ensure you are comfortable. After the anesthetic wears off, you might feel a little discomfort for a short time as your skin is healing itself.
Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?
Although RF microneedling delivers amazing results by itself, you might consider getting it with another treatment for more improvements. During your consultation, we will ask about your concerns and goals before recommending RF microneedling, plus additional procedures.
