Introduction: Are RF Microneedling Results Permanent?

In my years of experience in the aesthetics industry, I’ve been asked about the longevity of results from various treatments time and again. One treatment that often sparks curiosity is radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. As an innovative skin rejuvenation procedure, it promises to improve texture, reduce pores, and even out skin tone. But the burning question remains – are the results permanent?

From my interactions with clients at Wellaholic and industry experts, I understand the desire for long-lasting solutions. While RF microneedling can deliver impressive improvements, it’s crucial to approach it with realistic expectations.

In the rest of this article, I will provide more details on the nature of results, how long they typically last, and why maintaining a consistent skincare routine is key.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment that combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling to produce visible results in skin texture, tone, and overall health. This treatment works by creating tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, encouraging collagen production and increasing circulation in the area.

Common Concerns that RF Microneedling Targets

RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can target common concerns such as wrinkles, scarring, enlarged pores, dullness, uneven texture, and discoloration. It can also be used on most areas of the face, including around delicate areas around the eyes or mouth.

Minimal Downtime and Cumulative Effects

RF Microneedling involves minimal downtime for recovery, with many people being able to return to work after a single session. The effects are cumulative, with the best results seen after 2-3 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart from one another. At Wellaholic, we recommend spacing treatments between 2 weeks to 4 weeks apart for the best results.

Benefits of RF Microneedling

The advent of radio frequency (RF) microneedling has revolutionized the beauty and medical industries. This innovative treatment offers a wide range of benefits for both aesthetic and health-related concerns. By combining RF energy with the power of microneedling, those seeking to reduce wrinkles, scars, skin laxity, and other issues can do so safely and effectively.

How RF Microneedling Works

RF microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles on the surface of the skin to deliver heat directly into underlying tissue layers. The thermal energy stimulates collagen production while coagulating tissue in areas where wrinkles or scars are present. This unique dual action helps to improve skin texture, reduce pore size, improve scarring, even out pigment distribution and enhance overall appearance without causing further damage to the skin’s surface.


The Lifespan of Results from RF Microneedling

The length of time that results from RF microneedling will depend on several factors, such as the severity of skin damage being treated, your age and lifestyle habits, as well as how many treatments you receive. Generally speaking though, you can expect to see improved results for up to six months following an RF microneedling treatment. For some individuals with less severe signs of aging or sun damage, these effects may last much longer – even up to two years or more!

Here is a table that depicts the differences between RF microneedling and microneedling treatments:

Please note that the effectiveness and cost of these treatments can vary depending on various factors such as the individual’s skin type, the specific issues being addressed, and the number of treatments received.

There are several research papers that prove the effectiveness of RF Microneedling

Then, Are RF Microneedling Results Permanent?

RF microneedling results are not entirely permanent. The treatment stimulates collagen production to improve skin texture and reduce signs of ageing. But our skin continues ageing over time.

I recommend maintenance sessions every 6-12 months. This helps prolong results by continuing to boost collagen levels. Patients usually see optimal effects 3 months after their initial treatment series. Then results can last 1-2 years with proper skincare.

For example, I had a client with acne scarring who did 4 RF microneedling sessions. Her skin looked amazing afterwards! But some textural irregularities started returning after a year. We did one follow-up session, and her skin is glowing again. Maintenance keeps you looking refreshed.

In the heart of Singapore, a woman is experiencing the advanced Microneedling treatment at Wellaholic. This innovative treatment is designed to help individuals achieve their skincare goals by using microneedling technology to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process and promote collagen production. The Microneedling treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This process results in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin, enhancing the individual’s overall appearance. The effectiveness of the Microneedling treatment is widely recognized. Many customers have reported visible improvements in their skin texture, tone, and firmness after just a few sessions, making it a popular choice for those seeking a safe and effective skincare treatment.
