What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Our board-certified dermatologists proudly offer Diamond Glow ® radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to create gorgeous results. Known for its skin tightening effects, RF treatments have been popular among dermatologists and their patients for over ten years. RF microneedling uses heat to encourage the production of collagen in deeper layers of the skin, resulting in a tighter, smoother complexion. To optimize these results, we can combine RF microneedling with other treatments. At Clear Lake Dermatology in League City and Webster, TX, we strive to help our patients reach their desired cosmetic goals.

If you're 40 years old or older and starting to notice discoloration, smile lines, age spots, or other skin problems, then RF microneedling could be the ideal treatment for you. RF microneedling is an excellent option if you want to:
- Tighten your skin for a more refreshed appearance
- Enhance your skin's texture, tone, or pigment
- Treat skin imperfections like discoloration and visible blood vessels
- Diminish the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Eliminate acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more luminous look
Our RF Microneedling Technique
Microneedling uses a specialized device with very small needles at the end that we roll carefully across the skin to make micro-injuries. These micro-injuries interrupt the cells and stimulate collagen production. This technique is also known as collagen induction treatment. As it heals, the new, fresh skin leaves the top layer feeling and looking smooth, bright, and rejuvenated. Although microneedling is often performed by itself, combining this advanced method with radiofrequency (RF) technology has allowed us to maximize the outcomes for our patients.
This method is very straightforward. The handheld device, which emits RF heat, works by delivering short bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterilized, gold-plated microneedles. The power is delivered via the needles, which simultaneously puncture your skin and apply the electrodes to your skin. The RF energy warms to levels that offer long-lasting and continued benefits.
What to Expect
RF microneedling sessions take place in one of our spacious, private treatment rooms. If needed, we can use a numbing cream to help minimize discomfort. During your appointment, we'll glide the handheld device over the desired area, repeating the process until we reach your desired outcome. Patients should anticipate small pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours after the session; these scabs will naturally shed as the micro-injuries heal. Over the next month, the results will become more and more noticeable as your skin heals. For optimal results that last, patients may need to schedule 3 – 4 follow-up appointments spaced one month apart.
