What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Dr. Chris Costa utilizes a special technique that creates fantastic results for our patients using a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF remedies have been around for a number of years and are popular in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This specific sort of treatment utilizes heat to promote the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to reveal a firmer, smoother surface. This therapy could be used with microneedling to maximize the results. At Platinum Plastic Surgery, we frequently incorporate this new advancement into skin care treatments to create firmer skin, a smoother feel, and a glowing complexion for our patients in Las Vegas, NV.

Is RF Microneedling Right for Me?
If you are 40 years of age or older and are starting to notice age spots, discoloration, smile lines, and other skin problems (which include age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling may be the ideal treatment for you. RF microneedling may be an excellent choice if you want to:
- Tighten your skin, creating a more refreshed appearance
- Enhance skin texture, tone, and pigment
- Heal skin irregularities, such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Reduce the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Treat acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, more luminous look
How is RF Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling uses an instrument with tiny needles on the end that is rolled gently against the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "disrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some also refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New skin grows as the skin heals, leaving the surface feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and more rejuvenated. Although this procedure is often performed by itself, combining this innovative method with radiofrequency microneedling technology has allowed us to optimize the outcomes for our patients.
This procedure is quite easy. The applicator, which emits radiofrequency heat, works by providing brief pulses of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, gold-plated microneedles. The energy is transmitted through the needles, which concurrently punctures your skin and returns the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that offer cumulative and ongoing benefits.
What Results Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling sessions will be performed in the Platinum Plastic Surgery facility utilizing a numbing solution to decrease any discomfort. During your procedure, the handheld device will slide across the desired treatment areas, repeating the process until the desired outcome has been reached. Patients should anticipate tiny, pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours post-treatment, which will naturally disappear when the underlying skin has healed. Outcomes become visible as skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks after a microneedling with RF session. Optimal results generally necessitate 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
