Why Micro needling with RF is a Game Changer for Wrinkles, Skin Laxity and Acne Scarring

Why Micro needling with RF is a Game Changer for Wrinkles, Skin Laxity and Acne Scarring

At Defy Nature Med Spa Micro needling with radiofrequency (RF) may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but it’s actually the newest and most effective way to achieve tighter, smoother skin without surgery. To celebrate the arrival of the Genius micro needling system at our practice, we’re dedicating this post to examine why RF micro needling is superior to traditional micro needling.

But first, what the heck is RF microneedling?

Micro needling is a safe medical procedure that can be performed on any skin type and effectively addresses a wide range of skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and stretch marks, skin laxity due to aging, large pores, uneven skin tone, age spots and freckles. This is a wonderful choice for clients who would like to go a more natural way in maintaining youthfulness and beautiful radiance to their skin. Micro needling can be performed on practically any area of the skin but most commonly is performed on:

  • Face

  • Neck

  • Eyes

  • Hands

  • Abdominal area

At Defy Nature, we use the FDA-cleared Lutronic Genius because it allows us to monitor and carefully control RF during treatment to ensure that targeted tissues reach the optimal temperature to induce new collagen production and cell regeneration without overheating skin cells.

What are the advantages of using RF in microneedling?

Microneedling is a powerful treatment on its own, but the addition of RF takes it to the next level in terms of skin rejuvenation. Some of the benefits of using RF with micro needling include:

  • Faster cell turnover means quicker results than traditional microneedling.

  • Recovery time is much shorter compared to traditional microneedling, laser resurfacing treatments, and chemical peels

  • RF helps break down scar tissue

  • RF accelerates collagen production and skin tightening

  • With the Genius machine, treatment can be customized for each patient thanks to its variety of needle tips

  • Unlike some skin rejuvenation treatments, RF micro needling is safe for all skin types and tones

  • Treatment can be performed on almost any area of the body that has wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring

How many treatments will I need?

We find that three (3) is the optimal amount of treatments to see major skin tone & texture improvements. And since RF microneedling encourages your skin to produce collagen and elastin after it’s treated, you can enjoy results that will continue to improve for months.

Can I combine RF microneedling with other procedures?

Because the RF used in RF micro needling creates micro channels between your superficial and deep skin layers, your skin will be significantly more receptive to other facial rejuvenation treatments in the months following your RF micro needling treatment. To maximize your results, we recommend following up your treatment our amazing VI Peel and/or BOTOX or a dermal filler injection. We also recommend grabbing some quality skincare products, like those from Neo Cutis to indulge your newly rejuvenated skin.


By stimulating new cell growth and production of new collagen, patients achieve natural, subtle results of younger, healthier skin; as the body continues to repair itself, fine lines and wrinkles diminish, scarring and skin discolorations reduced, new cellular production results in fuller, smoother, glowing completion. Optimal results are achieved in 2-4 months.Our goal is to help you love the skin you’re in. We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our skin care specialists to learn more about how RF micro needling can help you achieve the healthy, glowing skin you deserve.
