What is RF Microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure to address wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, lax skin, and more. RF microneedling adds the element of radiofrequency energy to the already stimulating traditional microneedling procedure.

During treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area. Then, the RF microneedling device, equipped with ultrafine needles, will create tiny wounds in the skin while simultaneously emitting radiofrequency energy. As these controlled injuries heal, they will trigger new collagen and elastin production deep in the skin to combat signs of skin aging and skin laxity for tighter skin. Compared to classic microneedling procedures, RF microneedling produces more dramatic results, quicker.

Why Choose UnionDerm for RF Microneedling?

The board-certified dermatologists at UnionDerm have collectively performed over 2,000 radiofrequency microneedling treatments since 2016. Unlike other facilities that may only offer one type of RF microneedling treatment, our physicians choose from one of five different devices to most effectively treat each individual patient based on their specific concerns.

Additionally, several of our physicians have participated in clinical studies evaluating new treatment indications for RF microneedling including a trial that evaluated the use of the Secret RF device to improve acne scarring and a Morpheus8 study that determined its usage to effectively treat mild-to-moderate cellulite.

Who is a Candidate for RF Microneedling?

An ideal candidate for this treatment is someone who is in good health and is seeking the treatment of early signs of aging. Those who are pregnant or nursing, have a history of cold sores, hypertrophic scarring, or poor wound healing, or who have a severe skin disease may not be good candidates. To learn more about if this treatment is right for you, please schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists.

What Can I Expect with RF Microneedling?

At UnionDerm, we offer five cutting-edge RF microneedling devices for each patient’s unique aesthetic goals. These include:

Secret RF

Secret RF is a novel fractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment designed to stimulate and remodel collagen. The treatment uses microneedles to deliver radiofrequency waves into varying levels of the skin, including the deeper layers of the dermis. The intensity of the device can be tailored to treat the skin at various depths or to suit different patients’ needs, including diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, scars, and stretch marks.

This minimally invasive treatment typically requires little to no downtime, so you can return to your normal activities quickly. Most patients can see results weeks after a single treatment, but to achieve optimal results, a series of treatments is often recommended. As with other microneedling procedures, patients may experience redness, dryness, or swelling after Secret RF.


Morephus8 is a minimally invasive, deep fractional skin treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency. This combination stimulates collagen production by penetrating deeply into and heating layers of the dermis, triggering collagen production for tighter, smoother skin on both the face and body. The device’s modular tips allow the treatment to target areas large and small with minimal risk of hyperpigmentation. The device targets the deflation of soft tissue, including the jowls, as well as fine lines, cellulite, stretch marks, and acne scars.

During the treatment, the applicator passes over the skin of the affected area and penetrates the subdermal tissue, targeting areas of laxity or soft tissue. The device coagulates fat and contracts connective tissue to tighten and correct lines, marks, and wrinkles on the treated area.

EndyMed Intensif RF

The EndyMed Intensif RF Microneedle system combines microneedling and radiofrequency technology to reach deeper layers of skin and improve overall skin texture. The highly precise treatment transmits heat into the skin to trigger a healing response, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scarring for all skin types.

EndyMed Intensif RF is minimally invasive and requires little downtime. The treatment differs from traditional microneedling in a few ways: EndyMed Intensif’s gold-plated tapered microneedles require fewer passes over the skin’s surface, meaning a shorter session time, and the microneedles are much smaller, resulting in minimal discomfort.


Potenza is a versatile radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device safe for all skin types. RF energy heats the underlying layers, stimulating the tightening of skin through the stimulation of elastin and collagen. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply into the tissues, it can create quicker, more dramatic results. Potenza can also perform RF microneedling with an infusion tip designed to drive topicals into the skin for even more dramatic results.


The Profound treatment is a non-surgical option for treating facial wrinkles and the appearance of cellulite. It combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedles to transform your skin from within, triggering collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.
