What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy. Microneedling itself uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in your skin, micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing processes. When added, radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin layers to significantly enhance collagen and elastin production.

Differences from traditional microneedling include the following:

  • Depth of Treatment: Radiofrequency energy reaches deeper layers.
  • Efficacy: More effective in treating deeper scars and wrinkles.
  • Comfort: Often more comfortable with numbing agents.

How Does Matrix RF Microneedling Work?

Using the Pro, Sublime, and Sublative RF applicators, Matrix targets different skin layers and issues for multifaceted skin rejuvenation:

  • Matrix Pro stands out with its ultra-thin microneedles, offering controlled depth and energy settings. This allows targeted treatments that stimulate collagen and improve skin texture.
  • Sublime combines infrared and bipolar RF energies to heat skin layers. This process tightens collagen fibers and treats wrinkles without needles, reducing downtime.
  • The Sublative RF applicator employs bipolar RF energy through multi-electrode pins to resurface the skin and stimulate collagen. This needle-free approach reduces wrinkles and smooths skin appearance.

Matrix RF Microneedling Benefits

  • Enhanced Skin Texture: The treatment promotes collagen production, producing smoother and more youthful skin.
  • Minimal Downtime: You can return to your regular activities shortly after the procedure, making it convenient for busy schedules.
  • Versatility: It is suitable for various skin types and addresses multiple issues, such as acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • Precision: The focused energy targets specific areas, ensuring effective treatment while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.
  • Reduced Discomfort: Using microneedles and RF energy reduces the pain typically associated with other skin treatments.

What to Expect Before, During, and After

Consultation at Boston Center for Plastic Surgery

During this meeting, you’ll discuss your facial rejuvenation goals and medical history before receiving a personalized treatment plan. This includes information on the number of sessions required, expected results, and potential side effects. Our professionals are here to help you achieve the skin of your dreams.


A topical anesthetic is usually applied to minimize discomfort. Next, a handheld device with fine needles penetrates the skin and delivers radiofrequency energy. Depending on the treatment area, this process can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Combining microneedles and RF energy stimulates collagen production, which is key for skin rejuvenation.

Recovery and Results

Post-procedure, you might experience redness and minor swelling similar to a mild sunburn, but these effects typically subside within a few days.

Your results will appear within a few weeks as collagen production ramps up, including improvements in skin texture, firmness, and elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually diminish, and any scars or hyperpigmentation will start to fade. Over the next few months, your skin will continue to improve, revealing a smoother, more youthful, and radiant complexion.
