What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
-----COMING SOON TO OUR RADNOR, PA LOCATION-----
We use a special technique that creates gorgeous outcomes for our patients with a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have been around for a number of years and are popular in the cosmetic industry for their skin tightening effects. This specific type of therapy uses heat to promote the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a firmer, smoother surface. This treatment can be used with microneedling to optimize the results. At Body+Beauty Lab, we often add this new advancement into our Philadelphia and Radnor, PA clients' skin care treatments to generate healthier skin, a smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.
"Went here to see Judy for laser hair removal; amazing! She’s very professional and listens to what you want. Got laser hair removal just in time for the summer!"- M.B. / Yelp / Aug 19, 2021
"I got Kybella and Botox. Nurse Siddiqi was the injectionist and she was super friendly, professional and helpful. The results of both injections were great. The Botox was very natural and removed my forehead wrinkles almost completely. It even seemed to plump up the skin so that the deep creases I have were decreased. I had four vials of Kybella and my friends have all commented on how noticeable the results are. Ms. Siddiqi listened to my concerns about target areas and tailored the injections to decrease the fat in those areas. I’m very happy with the results. Also, Ms. Siddiqi is very gentle with the injections. I definitely recommend her services!"- V.B. / Yelp / May 19, 2021
"Judy is the best! She is extremely knowledgable and suggests new treatments that will improve my skin without being pushy. She is so also a very kind person and I cannot recommend her enough!"- M.L. / Yelp / May 07, 2021
"Just had my second frax treatment with Judy. I always look forward to coming to B&B Lab, the trip out of state is absolutely worth it. Judy sat with me, addressed my concerns and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. Can’t wait to come back!"- S.R. / Google / Apr 17, 2021
"A friend gifted me a Hydrafacial with Judy for my birthday and I loved it! She even emailed me a few days later to find out how my skin was doing. I look forward to coming in soon and purchasing some skin care to get through these summer months."- C.G. / Google / Mar 30, 2021
am i a Candidate for rf microneedling?
If you are 40 years old or older and are beginning to notice age spots, discoloration, smile lines, and other skin irregularities (which can come with age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling could be the perfect treatment for you. RF microneedling may be a great option if you want to:
- Firm the skin, producing a more refreshed look
- Boost skin feel, tone, and pigment
- Repair skin irregularities, like discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the look of age spots and sun damage
- Repair acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look
how does RF Microneedling work?
RF microneedling uses a tool (with small needles at the end) that's rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some even refer to this as collagen induction therapy. New skin begins to grow as the skin begins to heal, leaving the surface looking and feeling smoother, brighter, and refreshed. Although this procedure is usually performed by itself, combining this advanced method with radiofrequency microneedling technologies has enabled us to optimize the outcomes for our Philadelphia and Radnor, PA patients.
This practice is quite straightforward. The applicator, which emits radiofrequency heat, works by delivering short bursts of RF energy via an array of 25 sterile, golden microneedles. The energy is delivered via the needles, which simultaneously punctures your skin and circles back the electrodes into the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that offer cumulative and continuing benefits.
when will i see results from rf microneedling?
Your microneedling sessions will be performed in the Body+Beauty Lab facility with the help of a numbing solution to minimize discomfort. During your procedure, the handpiece will slide across the desired area, repeating the technique until the desired results have been reached. Patients should anticipate small, pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours post-procedure, which will naturally disappear when the inherent skin has healed. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin heals over a month after having a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results generally need 3 – 4 treatments 3 – 4 weeks apart.

How much does RF microneedling cost?
The cost for an RF microneedling treatment will vary based on your needs and the number of sessions scheduled to reveal your optimal results. At your initial consultation, we will answer all your concerns and estimate the cost of your treatment.
How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Every patient is different and some individuals might require more sessions compared to other patients. Our team will perform a thorough evaluation of your complexion and consider your needs and goals to help estimate the appropriate number of sessions for you. On average, most people get 3 – 4 treatments done one month apart.
What are the benefits of RF microneedling?
RF microneedling is both safe and effective for most complexion tones and types, and it can be performed on almost every area of your face and body. RF microneedling treatments deliver stunning results and minimal downtime if you are not ready for a surgical lift on your face or body. RF microneedling can help if you want to update the appearance of your skin a few years after a facelift or body lift surgery.
Does RF microneedling hurt?
Since a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area, most patients have minimal discomfort during the procedure. During your procedure, we will ask you to make sure you're feeling comfortable. When the anesthetic wears off, you may feel a little discomfort briefly while your skin heals.
Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?
While RF microneedling can deliver wonderful results alone, you may consider combining it with a second procedure for more improvements. In your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and goals about your skin before suggesting RF microneedling and/or other procedures.
