RF Microneedling Q&A

What is RF microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is an advanced skin enhancement procedure that works by stimulating collagen growth in your deep and superficial tissues. This results in faster and more effective healing of scars and blemishes, even old ones.  

Dr. Connie Hiers Plastic Surgery & Med Spa offers RF microneedling using the Secret™ RF system by Cutera®, an advanced device that delivers precise, controlled radiofrequency energy through a matrix of fine needles.  

Even without the addition of RF energy, microneedling stimulates skin healing by creating micro-injuries in your epidermis. Using the Secret RF device, your aesthetician can adjust the depths of the needles. They emit radiofrequency to heat your deep tissues for more dramatic skin healing.  

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment can also be added on to Secret RF microneedling to help achieve optimal results. Your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. That plasma is then used to help expedite skin healing and regeneration.

You may go home right away after RF microneedling, but you should be mindful of protecting your skin. Wear plenty of sunscreen, avoid hot baths, and stop using any exfoliants or irritating products.

What does RF microneedling treat?

Secret RF microneedling can treat a wide variety of common skin features and defects that accumulate with age, sun damage, and other processes. The multi-layered treatment is tailored to your needs and can minimize or eliminate:

  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Scars, including acne scars
  • Photodamage
  • Dull or dry skin
  • Stretch marks

During your consultation at Dr. Connie Hiers Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, your aesthetician examines your skin and asks about your goals. You may choose the areas you’d like to target based on the areas of skin that present the most damage.

Which areas can I target with RF microneedling?

RF microneedling is versatile and can treat skin on many areas of your body. Most Secret sessions last for 1.5 to 2 hours, and depending on the skin irregularities you want to treat, you may require multiple treatment sessions.  

Your personalized RF microneedling sessions can target aging skin on your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Decolletage (Upper Chest)
  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Legs

Your provider evaluates your medical history to make sure RF microneedling is the best possible choice and aligns with your needs. If you’re not a candidate for RF microneedling for any reason, the team can direct you to other more suitable solutions at Dr. Connie Hiers Plastic Surgery & Med Spa during your consultation.
