RF microneedling vs. microneedling

Finding the Best Skin Resurfacing Treatment: RF Microneedling vs. Microneedling

Perfect, age-defying skin may sound like a dream that will never happen, but don’t lose hope yet! Microneedling is a great way to trigger collagen production and smooth out those hard-to-erase imperfections. 

While many people have already heard of traditional microneedling, radiofrequency (RF) microneedling (such as INTRAcel) is the new and improved version of microneedling. At AesthetiCare in Kansas City, we provide both traditional microneedling and INTRAcel for a variety of skin tones and skin types. We’ve found that both treatments work great to reduce visible signs of aging and even acne scars. 

To find the best treatment for your needs, keep reading to learn more about RF microneedling vs. microneedling. 

The main difference: radiofrequency energy

We like to say that INTRAcel is microneedling 2.0. 

Traditional microneedling uses a handheld device with tiny needles to create micro-wounds in the skin. These micro-wounds trigger the body’s natural healing process to promote collagen production (and we all know how important that is for youthful skin). 

On the other hand, RF microneedling takes the traditional method and combines it with radiofrequency energy to create thermal damage deep within your tissue. As a result, you gain even more skin-rejuvenating results faster than you would with regular microneedling. 

RF microneedling vs. microneedling: Which one works for me?

The best way you can understand which microneedling treatment will work best for you is by going in for a consultation. If you’re looking for a more powerful option with faster results, you may want to choose RF microneedling. For people who are new to the microneedling process, you may start with the traditional treatment then work your way up to something like INTRAcel as your skin gets used to the procedure. 

At the end of the day, it all depends on your goals and skin conditions. When you see a specialist, he or she will be able to map out the right treatment plan for you, including how many sessions will give you the best results.

Regardless of which option you choose, both are great to treat:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Dull skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • And more!
