About RF Microneedling
Our staff utilizes a special technique called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, which produces beautiful results for our patients. Syneron Candela Profound RF treatments have existed for a number of years and are popular in the aesthetics industry because of the skin tightening effects. This particular type of treatment uses heat to encourage the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, which results in firmer and smoother skin. We can combine this technique with microneedling to maximize the outcomes. At Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, CT, we often add this procedure to our patients' treatment plan to create healthier skin, a smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.
At Versailles Medical Spa, RF microneedling with Profound is performed to complete what we call the Profound facelift. This technique allows us to firm and tighten the facial skin from beneath the surface by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This innovative technique has produced dramatic results in patients who are in search of a rejuvenated appearance without resulting to a surgical facelift.
RF Microneedling Candidates
If you are 40 years old or older and starting to notice smile lines, age spots, discoloration, and other skin irregularities that can come with age and sunlight exposure, RF microneedling may help enhance your skin. If you experience any of the skin concerns listed above, RF microneedling could help you attain your cosmetic goals. RF microneedling can help:
- Firm the skin, producing a more refreshed look
- Improve skin feel, tone, and pigment
- Address skin irregularities, like discoloration and blood vessels
- Minimize the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Improve acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look
Microneedling uses a tool with small needles on the end that's rolled carefully against the skin. As we roll the handpiece across the skin, it makes micro-injuries that promote the production of collagen. Some also refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New cells start to grow as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and rejuvenated. Although this procedure is usually done on its own, combining this advanced technique with radiofrequency microneedling technologies has enabled us to optimize outcomes for our patients.
This approach is quite simple. The applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by providing brief bursts of RF energy through the 25 sterile, gold-plated microneedles. The power is delivered through the needles, which simultaneously punctures your skin and circles back the electrodes on the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that provide many additional benefits.

We welcome you to call Versailles Medical Spa to find out more.
Your RF Microneedling
RF microneedling sessions start with us applying a numbing solution to help reduce any discomfort. During your appointment, the handpiece will slide across the skin and we will repeat the technique until we have treated the desired areas. Patients should expect small pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours afterward, which will naturally shed when the underlying micro-injury has healed. After having an RF microneedling procedure, results become visible as the skin heals over the next 3 – 4 weeks. To maintain results, patients should schedule 3 – 4 treatments each scheduled one month apart.
