What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin performs radiofrequency (RF) microneedling using an exceptional technique that has created gorgeous outcomes for many patients. RF remedies have existed for many years and are popular in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This particular type of treatment uses heat via Fractora™ by InMode technology to stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. This therapy is combined with microneedling to maximize the results. At Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery in Brea and Beverly Hills, CA, we frequently incorporate this new process into our patients' skin remedies to generate healthier skin, a much smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.

Who Should Have RF Microneedling?
If you're 40 years or older and have noticed discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin flaws that can come with age and sunlight exposure, then RF microneedling might be the right treatment for you. RF microneedling tends to be an excellent option if you wish to:
- Firm your skin, creating a more refreshed look
- Boost the feel, pigment, and tone of your skin
- Fix skin imperfections, such as visible blood vessels and discoloration
- Reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Treat acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate your skin for a younger, luminous look
Our RF Microneedling Technique
Microneedling uses an instrument with little needles at the end that rolls gently against the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "interrupt" the cells and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. New skin forms as the skin heals, leaving the surface feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and refreshed. While this procedure is commonly performed on its own, combining this advanced method with radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technology has allowed us to optimize the outcomes for our Brea and Beverly Hills, CA patients.
This process is quite straightforward. The applicator works by emitting brief bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden microneedles. The power is delivered through the needles, which concurrently puncture the skin and return the electrodes on the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that provide cumulative and ongoing results.
What to Expect Following Treatment
Your microneedling treatments will be performed at the Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery facility with the use of numbing cream to minimize discomfort. During your appointment, the handheld device will roll over the desired treatment areas, repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. You should expect small pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours after treatment; these scabs should naturally shed when the micro-injuries have healed. Results become noticeable as your skin heals over about a month following your microneedling with RF treatment. Optimal results generally require 3 – 4 treatments, each spaced one month apart.
If you're trying to lessen the appearance of sun-damaged or aging skin and reduce laxity, acne scars, or wrinkles, then RF microneedling is often a great remedy with proven outcomes. Combining radiofrequency skin tightening and microneedling, this outstanding skin repair procedure has grown in popularity and continues to be a top-rated, minimally invasive treatment for our Brea and Beverly Hills, CA patients.
