How RF Energy Works to Tighten Skin

Although cosmetic surgery is famed for time-honored traditions like Botox, facelifts, and dermal fillers, the industry is developing new innovations and bold techniques every day. One such method is Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, a skincare procedure that is excellent for skin tightening.

The experts at AesthetiSpa Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center are experts in using radiofrequency microneedling for skincare treatment and are eager to answer any and all patient questions. This article will break down everything you need to know.

What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a particular kind of microneedling, a skin treatment that stimulates healthy skin by creating small injuries in it.

As strange as it sounds, it’s true. By creating tiny micro-injuries in the skin, doctors can stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin, repairing scars and erasing wrinkles with refreshed collagen and elastin.

Radiofrequency microneedling takes this technology a step further by equipping microneedling tools with the ability to send radio waves into the skin.

Doing so enhances the effect of micro-injuries and thereby jumpstarts the growth of more collagen, elastin, and capillaries–which, in turn, leads to healthier, smoother skin.


AesthetiSpa and other leading cosmetic institutions use a technology called GENIUS RF, a radiofrequency microneedling platform developed by the cutting-edge laser cosmetic company Lutronic.

GENIUS RF works by using microneedles to penetrate the outer layer of the skin, allowing the device to deliver radio waves into the second layer of skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen.

It boasts additional features such as energy delivery feedback, which monitors radio wave output to optimize the microneedling treatment.

What Does RF Microneedling Treatment Entail?

RF microneedling is an incredibly simple process. Before the procedure, the patient’s skin is treated with numbing cream, ensuring that they are comfortable during the RF treatment, which lasts between twenty minutes and an hour.

Subsequently, the process is repeated between three to five times for several weeks.
