How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Fractional RF Microneedling is an advanced method of skin rejuvenation combining Microneedling and radio waves that stimulates the body’s natural healing process to encourage collagen production of the dermis resulting in anti-ageing and skin tightening of the face, neck and body.
It can also be used to treat concerns such as hooded eyelids, scars and to improve skin laxity above the knees.
During treatment, the Radio Frequency energy is delivered through the needles. By using the non-insulated needles on 3D Dermaforce, we target both the deep dermis and epidermis layers of the skin as the energy is emitted throughout the entire surface area.
The Radio Frequency wave penetrates the basal melanocyte barrier, heating the collagen fibres in the dermis to 55°C-65°C. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process, and as cell turnover increases as the body heals, this results in the production of collagen and elastin in these areas.
What Conditions Can Be Treated?
The Dermaforce Fractional RF machine is a very successful treatment to revitalise the skin in general. It can improve several skin conditions including:
- Lines and Wrinkles

What Results Can be Expected?
Although results can be seen following a one-off treatment, a course of 3-6 treatments is typically recommended for optimal results. Then an annual maintenance treatment once per year for maintainance.
Treatment times typically range from 20-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. 3-4 weeks apart.
