How Often Can You Do RF Microneedling? Your Secret RF Questions Answered!

Secret RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that can significantly improve your skin’s texture, tone, and quality. Although many clients have heard of microneedling, they still have lots of questions about how this innovative procedure can benefit them.

Below, we answer your top questions about Secret RF, from how often can you do microneedling to how soon can you wear makeup after your procedure and more!

Does RF microneedling tighten skin?

Yes. Secret RF Microneedling combines superfine needles and fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy to penetrate the deeper, collagen-producing tissues of the skin. The combination of thermal heat and micro-punctures stimulates the body’s natural healing response to encourage a more youthful-looking appearance.

As the body produces new collagen to support the skin from within, the result is a smoother, firmer look. Secret RF can also improve the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring (including acne scars) and other textural irregularities
  • Stretch marks and cellulite
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage
Does microneedling hurt?

Your provider will apply a numbing cream prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort. Secret RF clients often describe the sensation as pressure combined with a slight heat but little to no pain.

Is microneedling safe?

In the hands of a trained and experienced professional, microneedling is a very safe procedure. However, it may not be appropriate for every client, especially those who:

  • Are on blood thinners or are prone to blood clots
  • Are pregnant or nursing
  • Have a weakened immune system
  • Have an active skin condition such as eczema or acne

Your consultation will help you determine whether Secret RF Microneedling or another advanced facial procedure is best for you.

Is microneedling good for acne?

Secret RF Microneedling is highly effective at treating acne scars and enlarged pores but is not suitable for treating active acne lesions. The repetitive nature of the treatment could cause acne-causing bacteria to be introduced to other areas of the face, while the micro-punctures could stress and sensitize your skin further.

How long after microneedling can I wear makeup?

Clients will need to wait at least 24 hours before wearing makeup, although we recommend giving your skin 48 to 72 hours to heal first to avoid irritating your skin or potentially causing an infection. 

How often can you do microneedling?

Most clients’ initial treatment regimen will entail 3 to 4 treatments. Each appointment is spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to allow the skin time to heal and the body to start generating new collagen. Clients typically start seeing results after the second treatment, although the skin will continue to show improvements over the following months.

We recommend that clients get a maintenance treatment every 12 to 18 months to refresh their results and continue to enhance their skin quality.
