Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling
RF Microneedling (also known as Collagen induction Therapy), is fast becoming the treatment of choice for many customers due to its proven results with minimal downtime. It uses Insulated microneedles that are driven directly into the skin at certain depths. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is then released into the deep dermis under the skin targeting the tissue. The result, is the body’s own natural production of elastin and collagen fibres, which in turn make the skin firmer and healthier.

What areas of the body can be treated?
RF Microneedling can be used to treat any area of the body and any skin type, with very minimal downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
Results will vary dependent on the skin condition, however as a general rule, typically results can be obtained between 3 – 6 treatments, about 1 month apart. Upon your free consultation, we can advise of your treatment plan and discuss any concerns you may have.
Is there any downtime?
Downtime is minimal with most clients able to return to work the same day. The skin will however appear reddish for perhaps 6 – 24 hours and makeup should not be applied during this time.
Does it hurt?
We apply numbing cream to the area(s) to be treated about an hour prior to treatment. Generally clients do not feel the procedure, or a very mild pinch like sensation during the treatment. Our experienced staff can modify the intensity of the RF energy to ensure any discomfort is kept to a minimum, if at all.
Is this treatment safe?
Our equipment is FDA approved and fully sterile. We use insulated needles and dispose of the needle tip after each treatment. As with all treatments at City Laser Clinic, our staff are trained and experienced in protocols with such treatments. We can also provide LED light therapy after your treatment which is especially useful to avoid cross contamination and assist with rapid healing.
What Precautions are needed before and after treatment?
As with all most skin therapy treatments, especially with RF Microneedling, you must avoid exposure to direct sunlight before treatment and for several days after treatment. At City Laser Clinic, our experienced & qualified therapists will advise you, based on your skin type and the nature of the treatments that you are receiving. SPF is advised to be worn for the initial few days after treatment.
