When it comes to successful anti-aging methods, skincare treatments and cosmetic injections go hand in hand. Microneedling, a type of collagen induction therapy, has become an increasingly popular treatment. Another up-and-coming skin treatment is RF Microneedling. Although these treatments have similar names, there are some significant differences between the two. To learn more about the difference between Microneedling and RF Microneedling, keep reading.
What is Traditional Microneedling?
Microneedling is primarily great for overall skin rejuvenation. This popular treatment addresses fine lines, textured skin and scarring while simultaneously prompting collagen production. At Deux Rosé Beauty Refinery, we use the FDA-approved SkinPen for Microneedling treatments to ensure a safe and effective result. Results from the Microneedling treatments can be seen after just one treatment, but for optimal results, we typically recommend three to four sessions.

What is RF Microneedling?
Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling is primarily used to tighten the skin, in addition to diminishing scarring and stretch marks. RF Microneedling also offers the same benefits as traditional microneedling, such as addressing fine lines/wrinkles, skin texture and more. RF Microneedling is a skin tightening treatment that uses radio frequency energy through fine point needles to deliver heat into the deeper layers of skin. When this heat is administered, it prompts collagen production and skin tightening in that area.

So What’s the Difference?
As we’ve discussed, both treatments are a type of collagen induction therapy. Additionally, both treatments can be applied to areas other than the face, such as the neck, décolletage and more. They both pierce the skin and generate micro-wounds, which jumpstarts your skin’s collagen production and helps achieve drastic improvement in your skin concerns like texture and appearance… but what’s the difference?
The primary difference between these treatments is that Microneedling is ideal for patients looking to rejuvenate their skin, while RF Microneedling is ideal for patients looking to tighten their skin.
