Breaking It Down: How Long Can You Expect RF Microneedling to Last?

In the ever-evolving world of aesthetic treatments, RF microneedling stands out for its innovation and effectiveness. At Glam Aesthetics Medspa in Atlanta, GA, we are at the forefront of offering this cutting-edge treatment to those seeking rejuvenated, youthful skin. But how long can the magic of RF microneedling last? Join us as we explore the ins and outs of this treatment, ensuring you’re well-informed about its benefits and longevity.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling, or radiofrequency microneedling, is a cosmetic treatment that combines two popular skin rejuvenation techniques: microneedling and radiofrequency energy. Here’s a closer look at each component and how they work together.


This process involves using a device equipped with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, prompting collagen and elastin production. The result is improved skin texture and firmness and a reduction in the appearance of scars, pores, and wrinkles.

Radiofrequency (RF) Energy

Alongside microneedling, RF energy is delivered into the dermis (the skin’s deeper layer). The RF energy heats the dermis, encouraging collagen and elastin production without damaging the top layer of skin. This heating action helps to tighten the skin and further enhance the rejuvenation effects.

What Are Some Benefits of RF Microneedling?

The benefits of RF microneedling are multifaceted, offering significant improvements in skin texture, tone, and firmness. It effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and pores, leading to smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin. Moreover, its ability to target deeper layers of the skin ensures long-lasting results with minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking a non-invasive solution to various skin concerns.

How Long Can You Expect RF Microneedling to Last?

The results of RF microneedling can last for varying lengths of time, depending on several factors, including the individual’s skin condition, the treatment’s intensity, the area treated, and the individual’s natural aging process. Generally, the improvements in skin quality can be seen shortly after the treatment, with more significant results appearing as the skin heals and produces more collagen over the following months.

The effects of RF microneedling can last anywhere from six months to a year, or even longer in some cases. For best results, we often recommend a series of treatments (typically three or four sessions) spaced about four to six weeks apart, followed by maintenance treatments once a year or as needed.

How Can You Extend Your RF Microneedling Results?

Sun Protection

UV exposure can undermine the results of your treatment by causing damage and premature aging. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily, wear protective clothing, and seek shade when the sun is strongest.


Keep your skin hydrated with moisturizers that suit your skin type. Hydrated skin supports the regeneration process and enhances the appearance of smoothness and plumpness.

Antioxidants and Retinoids

Incorporate products containing antioxidants (like vitamin C) to protect against environmental damage and retinoids to promote skin renewal. However, wait until your skin has fully healed from the microneedling session before reintroducing retinoids, and consult your provider for the best timing.


A balanced diet of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants can support skin health. Focus on consuming plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.


Drinking enough water is essential for maintaining overall health, including skin health. Proper hydration can help keep your skin radiant and support healing.

Avoid Smoking and Limit Alcohol

Smoking can accelerate skin aging, and excessive alcohol consumption can dehydrate the skin. Avoiding or limiting these can prolong the effects of your treatment.

Regular Treatments

Depending on your individual goals and skin condition, your provider may recommend a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart, followed by maintenance treatments once or twice a year.

Minimize Stress

High levels of stress can impact your skin’s health and appearance. Meditation, yoga, and adequate sleep can help manage stress levels.

Follow Post-Treatment Instructions

We will provide specific aftercare instructions following your RF microneedling session. This may include using certain gentle products, avoiding makeup for a period, staying out of the sun, and not using exfoliating agents until the skin has fully healed.
