What is RF Microneedling?
The RF Microneedling system is the newest generation of microneedling with radio frequency and is effective for fine lines and wrinkles, skin tightening, acne, acne scars, and skin tone, texture and pore size, both on and off the face. It is the most revolutionary contouring and skin tightening system for face, neck, hands and body available, producing immediate, pain-free results.
Safe for all skin types, RF Microneedling can offer similar results as ablative and fractional laser procedures, but with significantly less discomfort, downtime, and risk of complications. This revolutionary new treatment also addresses the limitations of older ‘traditional’ RF treatments and heats deeper tissues to a much higher level, which leads to greater collagen production, elastin remodeling and wound contraction previously unattainable with older technology. This is why RF Microneedling is a game changer in skin rejuvenation and tightening. CLICK HERE to learn more

How does RF Microneedling work?
Our devices utilize radio frequency and microneedling to heat the targeted area underneath the epidermis. This dramatically improves the treatment outcomes compared to other radio frequency microneedling systems.
By using insulated needles, our devices bypass the epidermis and deliver powerful RF thermal energy to create tens of thousands of fractional coagulation zones in the dermis, facilitating a natural wound healing process. This promotes production of new collagen, remodeling of elastin and wound contraction, enhancing skin laxity. Because the thermal energy is delivered beneath the top layer of skin, there is significantly less risk of complications that are common with ablative and fractional lasers, with virtually no discomfort, and little to no downtime.

Other RF Microneedling devices can lead to uneven heating, pain and variable patient results. Our insulated, gold-tip needles and the robotic step motor create smooth and even insertions into the skin. The chevron-pattern circuitry for the powerful RF energy distributes heat evenly as it delivers skin tightening, thus reducing redness, hot spots, burning and discomfort that can occur using other devices. The robotic depth settings offer 31 precise, multilevel adjustments down to a depth of 3.5 mm at .1 mm increments – more precise than any other RF microneedling device in the world. In addition, a variable pulse duration means the length of time the needle is engaged with tissue can be precisely controlled based on your skin profile. Simply put, our devices are the most advanced and most effective non-surgical skin rejuvenation and tightening device in the world. CLICK HERE to learn more
Benefits of RF Microneedling:
- Minimizes/Eliminates Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Minimizes/Eliminates Acne Scars & Stretch Marks
- Skin Tightening & Texture – Stimulates collagen and elastin production
- Treat Sun Damage/Age Spots/Hyperpigmentation
- Serums containing growth factors, nano-peptides, vitamins, antioxidants and/or pigment reducers penetrate the skin through the microchannels
8 Reasons why Slate LOVES RF Microneedling
- You’ll see results quickly
RF Microneedling works faster than any other microneedling or laser option. First, the RF Energy creates micro injuries deep in the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy cells around the newly created matrix promote rapid healing, accelerating collagen production and skin tightening. Secondly, the invisible microchannels in the skin created by the superfine gold-tipped needles remain open for four to six hours allowing maximum absorption the key nutrients and serums applied during the treatment. This would include growth factors, HAs and other cosmeceuticals delivered to the skin in a way that no other treatment can, helping to rapidly rebuild new collagen and elastin.
- The average patient gets optimal results in just three treatments
Most patients experience noticeably softer, smoother and radiant skin, with improvements in tone, texture and laxity after just one treatment. We can typically achieve optimal results after only three sessions!
- The treatment is virtually painless
Our RF Microneedling devices were designed for an incomparable, comfortable patient experience. The unique robotic motor is so precise, it brings the discomfort level to a virtual zero as compared to any other device. The ultra thin needles make it virtually pain-free. A numbing cream is applied before treatment for you to stay comfortable. Our patients here at Slate Medspa consistently report a pain level of “1” on a scale of 1 to 10.
- There’s no downtime
Slate Medspa’s ultra-thin needles and robotic-assisted mechanism result in an exceptionally precise, even treatment with little-to-no bleeding. In addition, built-in LED Light therapy minimizes post-treatment redness. While we ask patients to wait until the next day before applying makeup, most feel comfortable going out without any makeup.
- It’s safe for almost any skin type
Patients with darker skin tones can have a more challenging time finding suitable skin resurfacing treatments, as lasers and peels that remove skin layers can risk permanent pigmentation changes. We can treat at 31 Adjustable depths, providing flexibility in treating entire depth or just down deep, bypassing damage to the top layer of skin. This means we can treat a broader array of skin types and tones with absolute precision. In addition, a variable pulse duration means the length of time the needle is engaged with tissue can be precisely controlled based on your skin profile.
- It tightens skin better than other microneedling, laser or RF options
While microneedling already helps firm skin texture, the addition of RF energy takes skin tightening to another level. Through insulated needles, RF Microneedling addresses the limitations of older ‘traditional’ RF treatments and heats deeper tissues to a much higher level. Plus, laser resurfacing cannot address concerns for darker skin types and also cannot be used for the neck and body due to the risk of scarring in non-facial tissue. That means we can tighten mild sagging skin around the face, neck or body previously unattainable with older technology. CLICK HERE to learn more
- It’s great for minimizing stretch marks and acne scars
The amazing collagen building effects of microneedling combined with the multiple depth coagulation zones will diminish the appearance of stretch marks and help with other common texture flaws such as acne scars, restoring a smooth, even appearance.
- RF Microneedling also rejuvenates the hands, neck, décolletage and body
With multiple robotic depth settings and adjustable energy levels that are more precise than any other RF microneedling device in the world, our devices can safely firm and smooth thinner skin on the hands, neck, and chest, as well as tighten thicker skin on the body.
RF Microneedling Aftercare
Since there is only mild dermal disruption during treatment, in most instances, downtime is minimal. After treatment, a mild pink or red ‘sunburn’ appearance is common. Makeup can be worn after 24 hours of the treatment. The majority of our clients achieve optimal results after 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart, but collagen production can continue up to 6 months post treatment.
While each person is different, most of our guests achieve excellent results from our skin rejuvenation programs. Even so, you will continue to age as you expose yourself to the sun and other environmental elements. What you can do is come back for regular touch-ups. Our clinicians will recommend the best maintenance plan for you.
RF Microneedling Before & After
RF Microneedling FAQ
How is RF Microneedling Performed?
First our prescription custom compounded numbing cream is applied to completely numb the treatment area. We then begin by programming the Vivace to the optimal settings based upon your skin type and concerns. Using insulated gold plated needle tips and robotic mechanism, the needles are inserted into the skin at various depths. We cover every area with two passes and then complete the treatment with a third pass at a more powerful wavelength. The result is an even and comprehensive treatment to address the entire area. The industry leading technology in our systems have 31 depth settings, 20 energy settings and 8 pulse length settings that enable us to customize the treatment and achieve the highest level of precision.
Is RF Microneedling Painful?
At Slate Medspa, we provide our patients with a custom compounded numbing cream that is applied prior to the treatment ensuring 100% comfort throughout the treatment! Plus our ultra-thin needles and unique robotic motor deliver smooth and even insertions into the skin so precise, it brings the discomfort level to a virtual zero as compared to any other device.
What Does It Feel Like?
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with an occasional, light sparking feeling.
Does Radio Frequency (RF) REALLY work?
RF is very effective in newer technology called Fractional RF Microneedling. Our devices bypass the epidermis, allowing for the Radio Frequency energy to deliver powerful and intense heat into the deeper layers of skin, causing tens of thousands of fractional electrocoagulation zones in the dermis which facilitates a natural wound healing process. RF Microneedling is proven to produce more collagen and elastin to tighten and renew the skin leaving it more youthful in appearance.
Older traditional RF devices use a process called “bulk heating” to apply the energy to the surface of the skin, requiring it to deliver a much lower level of heat which will diffuse before reaching deeper layers of the dermis. Damage to the dermis is minimal and coagulation does not occur. CLICK HERE to learn more
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the condition, however, on average 3 sessions spaced four to six weeks apart are needed to see optimal results. Single treatment protocols for the face are available depending on experience desired. For skin tightening of the body, more sessions may be recommended depending on the level of tightening needed.
How Long Does Vivace Take?
Each Vivace treatment lasts just 30 to 45 minutes (additional time is required for numbing)
What Is the Recovery Time?
RF Microneedling has minimal to no downtime. Your skin may be red in appearance and will be warm to touch. Typically the redness starts to subside even before you even leave the office. Supplement the treatment with our serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. By using the right products, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.
When Can I Wear Makeup?
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Mask and Recovery System. Wait at least six hours before you apply makeup, though we recommend waiting until the next morning.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Everyone is different, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next six months as results improve over time.
What Kind Of Skin Does Vivace Work On?
Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.
Is RF Microneedling The Right Treatment For Me?
RF Microneedling is safe for all skin types and all age groups. It’s important to work with a practice who uses FDA-cleared devices to give you confidence in its safety and reliability. Slate Medspa provides a patient experience that has been designed to be the most comfortable experience with the greatest results. Be clear that the device used is only part of the process, the right serums and recovery system will enhance your results.
How Do I Get Maximum Results From My Treatment?
