How much does RF microneedling cost?

The cost of your RF microneedling procedure will vary based on your case and the number of sessions needed to reveal your ideal results. During your first visit, our staff will answer your concerns and estimate your total costs.

How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?

Every patient is different so some individuals might require more treatments than others. We will thoroughly evaluate your complexion and listen to your goals to decide the appropriate number of sessions for you. Typically, most patients get 3 – 4 procedures spaced about a month apart.

Does RF microneedling hurt?

Since a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin, you should have minimal pain during RF microneedling. Throughout the procedure, our team will ask to make sure you're doing all right. When the local anesthesia wears off, you might have some discomfort briefly while your skin is healing itself.

If you are trying to reverse the look of aging or sun-damaged skin and reduce laxity, acne scars, or wrinkles, RF microneedling may be a great treatment with youthful results. Secret RF by Cutera mixes radiofrequency heat with microneedling and has been an outstanding skin rejuvenation method for our Carlsbad, NM patients. We invite you to get in touch with Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Center to find out more about this popular, minimally invasive therapy.
