What is RF Microneedling?
Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony E. Brissett utilizes a special technique that creates excellent results for our patients in Houston, TX 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 sort of therapy utilizes heat to stimulate the creation of collagen deep within the skin to reveal a tighter, smoother surface. This technique is then used in conjunction with microneedling in order to optimize the outcomes. At Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, we utilize a groundbreaking device known as Profound that produces firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.

Is RF Microneedling Right for Me?

- Firm your skin, producing a more refreshed appearance

How is RF Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling uses a tool with tiny needles at the end that is rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that interrupt the tissues and produce collagen. New collagen and elastin begin to increase in the area as the skin heals, leaving the surface feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated. Combining this advanced technique with RF microneedling technology has enabled us to optimize the results for our Houston, TX patients.
The Profound device works by providing short pulses of radiofrequency energy via an array of 25 sterile, gold-plated microneedles. The energy is transmitted through the needles, which simultaneously puncture your skin and circle back the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The radiofrequency energy warms deeper layers of the skin at levels that offer cumulative and continuing benefits.
What Results Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?
The procedure will take place in-house at our facility utilizing a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort you may feel. During the treatment, the Profound handpiece will slide across the desired treatment areas, repeating the technique until the desired results have been reached. Patients should anticipate tiny pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours after treatment, which will naturally shed when the inherent skin has healed. Outcomes become visible as the skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks after having a microneedling with RF treatment. Optimal results generally need 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
