Ideal candidates for RF Microneedling
Venus Versa RF microneedling is designed for anyone unhappy with their skin appearance. This treatment, unlike most laser procedures, is safe for all skin tones. Also, it requires little to no downtime. The radiofrequency microneedling can greatly help to address many skin flaws, including:
- Sun damage, scaly patches, or rough texture
- Acne scars and other forms of scarring or discoloration
- Lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin and jowling
- Redness and broken blood vessels
- General dulling and other early signs of aging
RF Microneedling Procedure Technique
Most patients feel much more comfortable about the idea of RF microneedling once they fully understand it. Venus Versa RF microneedling is done with 160 sterile points that are attached to a handheld instrument. Dr. Ryan will place this instrument very gently over the skin. The points do not penetrate the skin. Instead, a pulse of radiofrequency is sent through all 160 points and creates micro-traumas about the size of a hair shaft deep into the skin. These tiny injuries to the tissues stimulate the production of your body's collagen (this technique is sometimes referred to as collagen-induction treatment). As the skin starts healing, new collagen and elastin growth explodes and this skin looks and feels more refreshed and youthful. Collagen and elastin are the structural elements of the skin we lose over time and due to stress that cause wrinkling, thinning, and sagging. It is an amazing and relatively comfortable procedure for full skin rejuvenation.
What to expect from your RF Microneedling Treatment
Depending on the area you are having treated, your session at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE could take 30-60 minutes. A numbing cream will be applied to your skin before your RF microneedling treatment. Dr. Ryan will apply the RF microneedling head to your skin fully treating the area. After your treatment, you may see micro-scabs at the treatment points but this usually disappears in 1-3 days. This evidence your new skin is forming. You should begin to see results approximately one month after your procedure with the max effect seen at about 3 months and lasting for 6-12 months.
Venus Versa RF's microneedles deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy to the deep layers of the skin. This treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, and it has almost zero downtime. To achieve the best results, Dr. Ryan suggests at least 3 RF treatments 1 month apart. You will start to be able to see results after your second session, but your outcome won't become visible for about three months after your last session. RF microneedling is typically combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for an even more amazing result.

Frequently Asked Questions for RF Microneedling
How much does it cost?
The pricing of RF microneedling is determined based on the complexion issues you have treated, how large or small your treatment areas are, and how many sessions you will need. Dr. Ryan will walk you through all of your treatment options and steps to come to your cost. Treatments range from $200-$1500.
Will I need multiple treatments?
Typically, our Phoenix, AZ patients are recommended to have 3 treatments, which should be scheduled about a month apart. Every skin type, complexion issue, and ultimate goal requires a personalized treatment plan. For example, Dr. Ryan may determine that you only need 2 sessions, or he may suggest 4 – 6. He will make his recommendation after carefully examining your treatment areas and expectations.
Is RF microneedling right for me?
The RF microneedling skin rejuvenation treatment offers fantastic results and much less downtime compared to, for example, laser resurfacing. It is safe for all skin tones and can be used on both the face and body. RF microneedling provides visible improvements to texture irregularities, fine lines, scars, and blemishes, sagging, jowling, and deep wrinkles. The bonus of its collagen inducing properties also enhances your skin's appearance through tightening and firming.
Does the procedure hurt?
Most patients report having very little or no discomfort during RF microneedling treatments. Before each session, Dr. Ryan applies a topical numbing agent to the skin, which significantly helps to reduce any sensation. However, some patients do feel a mild but tolerable stinging during the treatment.
Is every treatment different?
Yes. Because each patient's needs, desires, and skin types are different, each treatment is always individualized. Dr. Ryan will create your treatment plan to address your specific concerns, as well as how many treatments you will need to see the results you want. Dr. Ryan may also suggest that you combine RF microneedling with PRP, an injectable filler, or Botox to enhance your outcome.
