About RF Microneedling
At Level Up Med Spa in Andover, MA, Dr. MaryAnn Millar M.D. uses an innovative approach to skin care that has been recognized for achieving excellent results for our patients with a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have been around for many years and are well-known in the cosmetic industry. This particular treatment uses heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin in order to create a tighter, smoother surface. This technique can be used with microneedling to optimize the results. At Level Up Med Spa, we often add this new advancement to our patient's skin care treatments to create firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.

If you are 40 years of age or older and are starting to notice discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin problems (that can come with age and sun exposure), RF microneedling might be the perfect treatment for you. RF microneedling may be an excellent choice if you wish to:
- Tighten the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Enhance skin texture, tone, and pigment
- Repair skin irregularities, such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Reduce the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Treat acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, healthier look
Microneedling uses a tool with small needles on the end that is rolled gently against the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some also refer to this as collagen induction therapy. New skin grows as the skin heals, leaving the top layer feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated. While this procedure is usually performed by itself, combining this advanced technique with radiofrequency microneedling technology has allowed us to optimize the results for our patients.
The method is quite straightforward. The handheld device, which emits radiofrequency heat, works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through an array of 25 sterilized, gold-plated microneedles. The energy is transmitted through the needles, which simultaneously punctures the skin and circles back the electrodes on the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits.
What to Expect
RF microneedling treatments will take place inside a private treatment room at our office with the use of numbing cream to minimize any discomfort. During your appointment, the handheld device will roll over the desired area, repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. Patients should expect minute pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours after treatment, which will naturally shed when the underlying micro-injury has healed. Results become visible as the skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks following the procedure. Optimal results usually call for 3 – 4 treatments scheduled 3 – 4 weeks apart.
