What is RF Microneedling?
Patients who love microneedling also love radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. This minimally invasive cosmetic treatment combines the collagen-boosting powers of microneedling with the skin-tightening capabilities of RF energy. Dr. Jennifer Armstrong is proud to use the Potenza™ RF microneedling system on both herself and her patients. Equipped with Tiger Tip™ technology, the Potenza™ system emits a warm, RF energy while the microchannels in your skin are being created, allowing your collagen to rebuild and your lax skin to tighten. Dr. Armstrong typically recommends RF microneedling treatments to patients who wish to reduce their unwanted signs of aging, tighten lax facial skin, and treat their hyperpigmentation. This all-in-one treatment is a fan favorite.

What Can I Expect During my RF Microneedling Treatment?
Your RF microneedling treatment will be performed by Dr. Jennifer Armstrong in our state-of-the-art facility. Before your treatment begins, a mild topical anesthetic will be applied to your desired treatment area. Once numb and comfortable, Dr. Armstrong will begin moving the Potenza™ RF microneedling applicator along the skin carefully and thoroughly. The entire treatment process typically takes less than 90 minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After my RF Microneedling Treatment?
Immediately following your RF microneedling treatment, you may notice your skin to be red and sensitive, similar to the sensation of a sunburn. These side effects are normal typically resolve on their own within a day or two of treatment. Dr. Armstrong and her team may ask that you avoid excessive exposure to the sun and do not apply makeup to your treated area for up to 48 hours following treatment. To aid in your healing process, Dr. Armstrong may also recommend a series of medical-grade skincare products. While you may see some results four to six weeks following your first treatment, we may recommend a series of three to six treatment spaced several weeks apart to achieve your desired results.
