RF Microneedling

RF Microneedling is an antiaging skin treatment which is a non-surgical and non-invasive way to treat signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, crepey skin, pore size, scarring and discoloration with no downtime and immediate results.  

At BEAUTILASE we offer RF Microneedling in Auckland which is a skin tightening treatment to improve skin texture and loose skin using our SecretTM RF machine which is an FDA approved medical device.  Although RF (Radio Frequency) has been around a long time, using RF for skin tightening work has become more popular and revolutionary in recent times. It is sometimes also known as collagen induction therapy. 

RF Microneedling is a holistic and long-term, cost-effective way of treating the skin whereas Botox and fillers introduce toxins into your body and require regular maintenance. It offers long lasting results whereas Botox does not. 

RF Microneedling requires fewer treatments than traditional Dermal needling and with better, faster, longer lasting results, it is more cost effective than Botox and fillers using a safe effective procedure. 

Our RF Microneedling device delivers energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. This unique delivery of energy allows us to stimulate the healing process for the remodelling of collagen and elastin to achieve optimal results. The treatment can be tailored to individual needs. 

RF microneedling stages

RF Microneedling can be performed in as little as 45minute session, depending on the area being treated. To achieve the optimal effect, 3-4 RF Secret Microneedling treatments are recommendedYou’ll start noticing results after your second treatment, with optimal results appearing 3 months after the last treatment.

What to expect during RF Microneedling

  • Before a treatment, all make-up, oils, sunscreens and other skin products must be removed. Your therapist will clean and sterilise the skin at the time of the treatment 
  • 20-30 mins prior to your treatment, we may apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before we start to make the experience as comfortable and painless as possible 
  • The device is held over the area for treatment where the micro needles puncture the skin and allow RF energy to heat up varying levels of the skin. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collage growth 
  • Each session will take at least 45 mins depending on what area is being treated 
  • Once complete, the skin will feel warm and you may experience some redness and swelling, which may remain for up to 24 hours 
  • Once the treatment is complete, you can return to your normal activities as there is minimal downtime
  • Generally, it can take 3-4 sessions a month apart to achieve optimal results on an accumulative basis. Each person is different and depending on the skin concern being treated you may require additional treatments for best results

I visited Beautilase hoping to find a laser clinic that could effectively treat my skin tone. I have sensitive skin and I’m not from New Zealand so my skin has been damaged by the harsher UV rays so I was a bit sceptical about laser on my face. Smita not only helped me with my laser needs but also with my skin texture and dryness.

Smita has helped me understand the value of tailored skincare and how to achieve as well as retain a healthy glow. I cannot recommend Beautilase enough. It has been wonderful having Smita help me with every single one of my skin/laser concerns.

Secret RF Microneedling is a novel approach to deliver fractional radio frequency (RF) energy to all layers of the skin with minimal damage to the skin’s surface. The multi-layered treatment is tailored to each individual and addresses their unique skin concern during each customized treatment.

Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver radio frequency energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. Unlike other devices which only deposit energy in upper layer of the skin, Secret RF delivers RF energy below the surface where it’s needed most to help revitalize and regenerate the tissue and collagen. This is based on your natural skins ability to repair itself. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results with little to no downtime on all skin types. The microneedles will puncture the skin and create microscopic ‘pinpricks’. The new skin becomes smoother textured and firmer.

RF Microneedling can treat a number of areas including the face, pores, jawline, jowls, and neck, around eyes, eyelids, arms, knees, thighs, stretch marks, acne and other scars. Generally, most areas that have laxity can be treated – contact us for an assessment.

The RF Microneedling treatment is ideal for improving aging skin, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, scars acnes, surgical scars, skin quality and stretch marks. The treatment is safe and effective, and suitable for all skin types and clients seeking skin revitalization.

Microneedling uses very fine sterile needles that penetrate the skin causing micro-wounds that stimulate wound healing whereas RF Microneedling combines Microneedling with Radio Frequency heat energy to accelerate collagen and elastin production further. RF Microneedling requires fewer treatments and is more cost effective with longer lasting results.

Generally, 3-4 sessions Spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Most clients report improvement after the second treatment however results are optimised 3 months after the course of treatments. This will provide optimum results. Some people may require additional sessions depending on skin laxity and skin condition to provide the best results.
Results vary based on the individual. To keep the results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12-18 months. This helps combat the normal aging process.
After the treatment, an ointment will be applied to the skin and you will be asked to refrain from wearing make up for several hours. Any minor redness or swelling resulting from treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities.
Not really. Most people find RF Needling tolerable. If required, we will use a numbing cream applied 20 – 30 mins prior to treatment to provide the best comfort possible.
Ideally you would have RF Microneedling before any Botox or Dermal Filler treatments. If you have already had Botox and Fillers, then you wait 6-months before a RF Microneedling treatment to ensure the filler is integrated into the tissues and be minimally affected by the RF.
Women and men with all skin types can be treated with RF Microneedling. It is not recommended if you have metal implants (in area to be treated), are pregnant or nursing, diabetic, a pacemaker, bruise easily. Refer to ‘Contraindications’ and ‘Precautions’ FAQ for detailed information on who should not have RF Microneedling treatment.

Side effects are typically minimal and do not last long.  They are generally mild with redness, some swelling and tingling depending on the treatment. The initial redness will be gone quickly.  It can take up to 24 hours for the effects to resolve.

The following can help minimise the effects:

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Do not pick the skin, this could cause scarring.
  • Avoid any direct sun exposure for a week. As always, use sunblock when going outside.
  • Avoid makeup for the first 24 hours.
  • Avoid alcohol for a few days.
RF Microneedling is an affordable treatment option for excessive sweating otherwise known as axillary hyperhidrosis. It can reduce the severity of symptoms. Sweating can be reduced by 75% in 2 to 3 treatments.

The procedure has potential benefits and risks and results may vary with each individual and in rare cases the desired results may not be reached. It is impossible to predict how you will respond to the treatment and how many sessions may be required due to unknown factors such as underlying medical conditions and lifestyle factors.
