How Long Does It Take to See Results From RF Microneedling?

Your RF Microneedling treatment timeline

RF Microneedling is quickly becoming a popular minimally invasive treatment option for a wide range of skin concerns. This unique, cutting-edge procedure combines the benefits of traditional cold microneedling and radiofrequency technology to boost your skin’s natural renewal process. Potenza RF Microneedling, in particular, is the most advanced device on the market—treatments are customizable for all skin types. RF Microneedling stands out from other treatments because it rejuvenates skin at a deeper level while protecting the top outer layer of skin. It can treat anything from uneven skin texture and fine lines and wrinkles to uneven skin texture and even lax skin.

If you’ve booked your first RF Microneedling treatment but are unsure of when you can see results, here’s everything you need to know to help you plan ahead and reach your SkinFitness™ goals.

What can I expect right after an RF Microneedling treatment?

Immediately following an RF Microneedling treatment, you may experience mild to moderate redness, inflammation, and skin sensitivity. But don’t worry— these side effects usually subside within a few days or up to a few weeks. Your skin should be completely healed four to six weeks later, and you’ll be ready for your next treatment.

When will I see results?

Most notice some initial results after four to six weeks — your skin may begin to appear firmer, smoother, and healthier. However, RF Microneedling’s more noticeable effects appear over three to six months as your skin goes through three different phases of collagen remodeling. After this time, you’ll notice that your skin is tighter, smoother, and more youthful overall.

How many treatments will I need?

To achieve optimal results, it’s recommended that you repeat RF Microneedling treatments every four to six weeks for three to six treatments, followed by routine maintenance treatments. But ultimately, the number of treatments you’ll need will depend on your unique skincare goals, such as if you want to treat acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, or uneven skin texture.
