Microneedling is an excellent way to treat aging skin and scarring. But, if you’re looking for the best results possible, you may want to consider adding RF technology into your treatment plan. Microneedling alone can’t give you all of the benefits that RF technology offers, but when used together they deliver a synergistic effect that delivers tremendous results in less time than traditional microneedling treatments.

What is RF microneedling?

RF microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a device with a tip that has many tiny needles. The procedure can be performed in the office of a physician or at home, depending on the type of device used.

  • RF Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) involves using radiofrequency energy to create controlled thermal injury to the dermis layer of skin and promote remodeling through increased penetration of topical products into deeper layers of tissue.* This process causes mild damage to the epidermis while simultaneously creating microscopic channels through which new collagen fibers grow into place.*

Why is RF better than Microneedling or lasers?

Microneedling and lasers are the most popular skin treatments. But they have some disadvantages that can be overcome with RF microneedling technology.

RF is a better alternative to microneedling and lasers because it is safer, less expensive and more effective.

Microneedling and radio frequency work together to firm, tighten and tone your skin and the best in-office options are EndyMed, Fractora, Vivace, Secret RF and Genius.

Vivace™ is the only device that combines RF microneedling with radio frequency. It can be used on all skin types and skin tones, from light to dark, in a single treatment session by simply adjusting the parameters of each individual wavelength.

Vivace™ offers two different modes: “Acne Mode” and “Anti-Aging Mode.” In Acne Mode, Vivace™ uses both radio frequency (RF) energy and micro-needling at the same time to penetrate deep into pores so they can be cleaned out more effectively than with just one or the other modality alone. The RF energy helps open up clogged pores while also reducing inflammation as part of its anti-scarring benefits–and this allows for faster healing times overall!

In Anti-Aging Mode, Vivace™ uses micro-needling by itself without any additional RF energy; this allows for lower temperatures during treatments so you won’t experience any discomfort at all!


EndyMed is a system that uses radio frequency to create micro-channels in the skin. EndyMed is the only device that can be used in-office, which means it’s available for patients with darker skin tones who are not able to use lasers or light devices safely. This technology was developed by dermatologists and has been studied extensively at reputable institutions like Harvard Medical School. The FDA has also approved its use for treating acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines on the face as well as body contouring procedures such as cellulite reduction.*

EndyMed’s clinical studies have shown significant improvements over traditional methods of microneedling such as dermarollers or manual needling techniques.* In fact, one study showed an average improvement in skin tone of 58% after six months.*


Fractora is the first and only FDA-approved radio frequency microneedling device. This means that it offers both radio frequency and microneedling in one device, which makes it more convenient than other similar devices on the market.

Fractora can be used on any area of your body with great results: face, neck, chest, arms and legs all respond beautifully to this technology!

Scarlet RF

Scarlet RF is a new technology that uses radio frequency to stimulate collagen production. It’s the only radio frequency microneedling device that is FDA-cleared for use in the US, and it has been used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons to treat scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.

Scarlet RF has been shown to be an effective treatment for improving skin texture and tone while reducing pore size.*


Vivace™ is a radio frequency device that uses a unique technology to deliver energy to the skin. It is used to treat acne, wrinkles, sun damage and other skin conditions. The Vivace™ system was cleared by the FDA in 2015 for use in the treatment of acne vulgaris (severe or moderate).


Genius® is a microneedling device that uses radio frequency to create microchannels in the skin. The treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest and hands to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as improve overall skin tone.

It’s an effective treatment for acne scars and age spots as well as stretch marks caused by pregnancy or weight fluctuations. The procedure involves rolling tiny needles over your face at different depths while they emit heat that stimulates collagen production within your dermis (the layer of tissue just below your epidermis). This stimulates the production of new cells that are replaced by healthy ones giving you younger looking skin without surgery!

There are many different ways to get great results from a minimally invasive procedure.

RF microneedling is a great option for people who want to improve their skin, especially if they have superficial scarring or wrinkles. RF microneedling can be done in the office or at home, depending on which device you choose and what your goals are.


Microneedling is a great treatment for improving the appearance of your skin. But if you are looking for more dramatic results, radio frequency can help. With its ability to heat the deeper layers of skin and stimulate collagen production, it can give you even better results than microneedling alone.
