The biomechanics of microneedling with radiofrequency treatment involve a combination of mechanical stimulation and controlled thermal injury to the skin.

Microneedling Phase

  • Mechanical Micro-injury: The first step of microneedling involves the use of a specialized device that contains fine, sterile needles. These needles create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface as they penetrate the epidermis and upper dermal layers. The microneedles are designed to be small enough not to cause significant damage but large enough to induce a controlled wound healing response.

  • Stimulating Wound Healing: The micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing process, activating various cellular responses. This includes the release of growth factors, cytokines, and other signaling molecules that promote tissue repair and regeneration.

  • Collagen and Elastin Production: As part of the wound healing process, fibroblasts (cells responsible for collagen synthesis) are activated and begin producing new collagen and elastin fibers in the treated area. Collagen and elastin are essential components of the skin’s structure, providing firmness, elasticity, and support
Radiofrequency Phase

  • Controlled Heating: During the radiofrequency phase, the same device used for microneedling delivers radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin. This energy is emitted in the form of electromagnetic waves.

  • Targeting the Dermis: The micro-injuries created by the microneedles act as channels, allowing the radiofrequency energy to penetrate deeper into the dermis, where collagen and elastin reside.

  • Thermal Injury: The radiofrequency energy heats the targeted tissues, causing controlled thermal injury to the dermal layer. This controlled heating stimulates the body’s wound healing response at a deeper level, promoting further collagen and elastin production.

  • Collagen Remodeling: Over time, the newly formed collagen and elastin fibers undergo remodeling, organizing themselves in a more structured and youthful pattern. This remodeling process leads to improved skin firmness and texture.

  • Skin Tightening: The heating effect of radiofrequency also induces collagen contraction, resulting in skin tightening. The combined effects of collagen production and contraction contribute to a noticeable improvement in skin laxity

Overall, the biomechanics of microneedling with radiofrequency treatment create a controlled and targeted skin rejuvenation process. The mechanical micro-injuries from microneedling trigger the body’s natural healing mechanisms, while the controlled thermal injury from radiofrequency energy further enhances collagen production and skin tightening. The end result is improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, scar reduction, and overall skin rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions


Wze offer a topical numbing cream before the procedure, which helps minimize discomfort. While individual pain tolerance varies, most patients report mild discomfort during the treatment, likened to a tingling or pricking sensation.  For more sensitive patients, we are equipped to provide nerve-blocking anesthesia.

  • Microneedling with RF can address a range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, sagging skin, uneven skin texture, and stretch marks.
  • The number of sessions required varies depending on individual skin conditions and treatment goals. Typically, a series of 3 to 4 sessions spaced several weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. Maintenance sessions may be suggested for long-term benefits.
  • Downtime is generally minimal compared to more invasive treatments. Patients may experience mild redness, swelling, and possible pinpoint bleeding immediately after the procedure. These effects usually subside within a few days.

Recovery time varies from person to person, but most individuals can resume normal activities within a day or two after the procedure. Sunscreen and avoiding intense sun exposure are typically advised during the recovery period.

The results of microneedling with RF are long-lasting, as the treatment stimulates collagen production, which continues to improve the skin’s appearance over several months. However, maintenance sessions may be necessary to sustain the benefits.

Side effects are generally mild and temporary, including redness, swelling, bruising, and minor skin irritation. In rare cases, there is a risk of infection, scarring, or pigment changes, but these are exceedingly uncommon in the hands of a skilled practitioner.

It’s typically recommended to wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup to allow the skin to recover fully. However, your provider will give you specific post-procedure instructions based on your skin’s response.

Yes, microneedling with RF can be combined with other treatments like PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy, chemical peels, or dermal fillers to enhance the overall results. Combination therapies are often tailored to each patient’s unique needs.
