If you are from the Houston area, you may have spent a lot of time outside enjoying the sunshine. But sun exposure and the natural effects of aging can cause the skin to develop sunspots and wrinkles and have a rougher texture. If you are interested in complexion treatments that aren’t invasive and don’t come with downtime, you can ask us about RF microneedling treatments. At Exclusively Radiant Medspa, we can help address your concerns about acne scarring, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and more.
What Is RF Microneedling and What Makes it Different?
You may have already heard about microneedling, but RF microneedling takes the treatment a step further. With this treatment, microneedling is combined with radiofrequency energy. This dual procedure serves to heighten the effects of the treatment.
Both microneedling and radiofrequency energy can produce short-term results and long-term results through neo-collagenesis. Neo-collagensis is the body’s natural response to injury during which it produces collagen to heal a wound. If you aren’t familiar with either component of RF microneedling treatments, here are the ways that each part of the treatment can benefit your skin:
Professional microneedling devices use microchanneling to force your skin to engage in the healing process and produce more collagen and elastin. During this portion of the treatment, tiny needles precisely prick the skin without causing tearing. Your body can then begin the healing process, during which acne scars can be reduced, age spots can lighten, and the skin can become softer.
Radiofrequency energy is a helpful addition to microneedling treatments because it can penetrate deeper into your skin without harming it. This heat energy encourages collagen and elastin production in the deeper parts of your skin for longer-lasting results.
RF Microneedling Benefits
It Is a No-Downtime and Non-Invasive Treatment
Since RF microneedling is a non-invasive treatment, you will not need to plan for any downtime. You may have slight redness of the skin that is mild and temporary, but you can still return to work immediately after the treatment.
It Is Suitable for Most Skin Types
Some treatments may not be suitable for all skin colors and types. However, RF microneedling can be used with most skin types and colors including dark and tanned skin, especially when carefully customized by your doctor.
It Can Treat Many Different Complexion Conditions
RF microneedling can be effective for many different complexion concerns including:
- Acne Scar Treatment
- Signs of Aging
- Sagging Skin
- Rough Skin Texture
- Sun Spots
Why We Use Cartessa RF Microneedling Devices
We always want to provide the very best technology for our patients which is why we use Cartessa RF Microneedling devices. These devices deliver the most customizable experience for every patient while also increasing precision and providing the best post-care experience. Cartessa RF Microneedling uniquely offers:
Multiple Handpieces for Customized Options
Cartessa’s RF microneedling device offers handpiece options for larger areas of your face such as your forehead and cheeks, as well as smaller and more delicate areas such as around your eyes, across your jawline, and around your mouth. With these different options, we can deliver better and more precise results.
Robotic Precision Delivery (RPD)
With Cartessa’s Robotic Precision Delivery technology, each needle will penetrate at the exact depth that your doctor has determined safe for your skin type and comfort. This is essential for preventing tearing to the skin.
With Cartessa, we have the option to use sub-pulse technology which allows us to customize the treatment even further for your comfort during treatment and for your individual skin type and complexion concerns. Sub-pulse technology breaks down the RF energy into sub-pulses which can be more comfortable for some patients.
Best Post-Treatment Care
Cartessa RF microneedling treatments come with patented post-treatment care that supports your skin during the healing process. The wet and dry mask care protocol reduces redness, nourishes your skin, and immediately calms any inflammatory response. Microcurrent technology in these face masks helps these vitamins and nutrients to reach deep into your skin.

The Cartessa RF microneedling devices provide us with the highest level of customizability. With this device, we have complete control over the entire treatment. It gives us the opportunity to listen to your individual concerns and adjust the treatment to fit your situation.
What to Expect From Your RF Microneedling Treatment
One of the most important parts of our RF microneedling treatments is our consultation with you. This is when we can address any specific concerns you have, discuss the treatment in detail, and make a plan for your treatment.
During your RF microneedling treatment, you will be able to sit back and relax while we treat the areas discussed during your consultation. Before we begin, we will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin so that any discomfort from the microneedles will be minimized. Most people feel light pressure and some warmth from the radiofrequency energy.
After we are done, we will follow up with our after-treatment care and give you instructions on how to care for your skin in the following days. You may notice some results right away, but long-lasting results can take anywhere from several weeks to six months to become fully apparent.
