What Is RF Microneedling and How Does it Work?

RF microneedling combines two effective treatments into one powerful solution for correcting skin imperfections. Tiny needles puncture the skin and create small wounds in the internal skin layer (dermis). The needles then release radiofrequency energy into these wounds that heat the dermis and invigorate the production of collagen and elastin, compounds that tighten the skin as the wounds naturally heal. The result is smoother, firmer, gorgeous skin that looks good for years to come because the restructuring is initiated from the inside out.

Can RF Microneedling Be Combined with Other Skin Treatments?

Certainly! Certain individuals may consider exploring supplementary treatments or procedures to enhance the advantages of their RF Microneedling, including:

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper blepharoplasty aims to rejuvenate the upper eyelids for a brighter appearance, addressing concerns such as drooping or puffiness that affect facial expressiveness. Factors like aging and stress contribute to these changes, impacting overall facial aesthetics.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty addresses under-eye conditions caused by stress, aging, or genetics by tightening skin, removing excess fat, and adjusting tissues through hidden incisions, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels can revitalize your skin, tailored to your unique needs and concerns. These versatile treatments offer a personalized approach to skincare, targeting issues such as fine lines, acne scars, and overall complexion refreshment.

Dermal Fillers

A dermal filler is a cosmetic injectable substance used to add volume, smooth lines, and enhance facial contours by filling in wrinkles, folds, or hollow areas of the skin. It typically consists of hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials that are injected beneath the skin's surface to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Can Microneedling Handle Acne Scars?

Studies have shown that microneedling can potentially help reduce the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture. This treatment involves creating tiny injuries in the skin, which can lead to noticeable improvements in various types of acne scars, such as rolling, boxcar, and ice pick scars. While individual results may vary, combining microneedling with other treatments or undergoing multiple sessions may enhance its effectiveness.


Dr. Cox is simply amazing!! I have done multiple services with her including, fillers, botox, CO2 laser resurfacing, Targeted plasma pen, PDO threading and microneedling. Prior to these treatments I had never had any aesthetic services or a proper skincare routine. She explained everything in great detail and I knew I was in skilled hands. My skin has never been healthier!! I live in Florida where she previously practiced and will be traveling to Colorado to continue treatments with her. She is a stunning person inside and out. I HIGHLY recommend her for your aesthetic and oculoplastic needs. You will not be disappointed.
