Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling in Fort Washington, PA


At Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute, our skilled practitioners use an exceptional technique to create outstanding results for our patients using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have existed for many years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for their skin tightening effects. This specific sort of therapy uses heat to encourage the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to reveal a firmer, smoother surface. This technique can be used in conjunction with traditional microneedling to optimize your ideal results. At Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute, we frequently suggest adding this new advancement into our cosmetic dermatology patients’ skincare treatments to produce healthier skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.


If you’re 40 years old or older and are beginning to find smile lines, discoloration, age spots, and other skin irregularities that can come with age and sun exposure, RF microneedling might be the ideal treatment for you. RF microneedling is a wonderful option if you want to:

  • Tighten your skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
  • Enhance skin texture, tone, and pigment
  • Address skin imperfections, such as blood vessels and discoloration
  • Reduce the look of sun damage and age spots
  • Repair acne scars and other forms of hyperpigmentation
  • Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more glowing appearance


Microneedling uses a tool with tiny needles that’s rolled carefully against the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that “disrupt” the cells and tissues and produce an extra collagen. Some refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New skin forms as new skin begins to heal, leaving the surface layer feeling and appearing refreshed, brighter, and smoother. While this procedure is commonly done on its own, combining this advanced technique with radiofrequency microneedling has allowed us to optimize outcomes for our patients. 

The process is relatively straightforward. A handheld applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by providing brief pulses of RF energy through a collection of 25 sterile, gold-plated microneedles. The energy is delivered via the needles, which simultaneously punctures the skin and circles back the electrodes into the surface of the skin. This RF energy warms at levels which offer cumulative and ongoing benefits.


Radiofrequency microneedling sessions will be performed inside of Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute in and around Fort Washington, PA, using a numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort. During your appointment, the handpiece will roll over the desired treatment areas, repeating the process until the desired outcome has been reached. You should expect minute pinpoint scars to appear anywhere from 24 – 72 hours after treatment, which should naturally heal along with the underlying micro-injury. Outcomes become visible as the skin heals over the 3 –4 weeks following the RF microneedling procedure. For optimal results, 3 – 4 appointments with about one month in between can be scheduled.


If you’re seeking to reverse the appearance of aging or sun-damaged skin, as well as acne scars, laxity, or wrinkles, RF microneedling is an excellent procedure with proven results. Combining radiofrequency skin tightening and microneedling, this exceptional skin rejuvenation procedure has increased in popularity and continues to be a highly-rated, minimally invasive therapy for our Fort Washington, PA, patients. We invite you to call or contact Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute to find out more.
