What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Our expert staff uses a special approach that produces beautiful results for our patients using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are well known in the aesthetics industry for their skin tightening effects. This specific sort of treatment uses heat to stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin to reveal a tighter, smoother surface. This therapy can be used in conjunction with microneedling to optimize the results. At Body Bar MD, we Morpehus8® technology into our Carmel, IN patient's skin remedies to generate firmer skin, a smoother feel, and a glowing complexion.

Am I a Candidate for RF Microneedling?
If you're 40 years of age or older and are starting to find smile lines, age spots, discoloration, and other skin problems (which include age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling could be the ideal treatment for you. RF microneedling is an excellent option if you wish to:
- Tighten the skin, producing a more refreshed look
- Boost skin feel, tone, and pigment
- Repair skin imperfections like discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the look of age spots and sun damage
- Improve acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, more glowing look
How is RF Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling uses a tool with small needles at the end that is rolled carefully against the skin to puncture and make microinjuries that "disrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New skin grows as the skin heals, leaving the surface feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and refreshed. While this process is usually done by itself, combining this innovative technique with radiofrequency microneedling technologies has enabled us to optimize the results for our patients.
This procedure is quite simple. The Morpheus8 handheld device emits radiofrequency heat, working to deliver brief pulses of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, gold-plated microneedles, which simultaneously puncture your skin and return the electrodes on the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that offer cumulative and ongoing results.
What Results Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?
Your microneedling treatment will take place in the Body Bar MD office employing a numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. During your procedure, the handheld device will roll over the desired area, repeating the process until the desired outcome has been reached. Patients should expect tiny pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours post-procedure, which will naturally disappear when the underlying skin has healed. Outcomes become visible as skin heals over a month after having a microneedling with RF treatment. Optimal results generally necessitate 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
