What is RF Microneedling Treatment?

RF microneedling is a treatment combining radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling to address various conditions such as Melasma, Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), redness, and vascular lesions.

With Sylfirm X, pulsed type RF reacts to abnormal blood vessels and basement membranes to improve skin texture and tone. Developed in collaboration with technical expertise in Silicon Valley, U.S.A, it is clinically tested by a professional medical team in Canada for one year.

During a session, the practitioner moves the device over the target area, allowing the microneedles to create uniform micro-injuries while the RF energy is transmitted. By creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin, RF microneedling triggers the body’s natural healing response to strengthen the skin. Concurrently, the device emits RF energy through the needles, delivering heat into the dermis to improve the appearance of the skin.

Who is This Treatment For?

RF microneedling treatment can be suitable for individuals in with skin concerns such as:

  • Melasma
  • Redness
  • Vascular lesions
  • PIH
  • Hot flushes
  • Freckles
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Active inflammatory acne

Benefit of the RF Microneedling Treatment

Merging microneedling with radiofrequency energy, RF microneedling primarily encourages skin rejuvenation, which helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and improving the overall texture of the skin. The treatment may address Melasma, wrinkles, acne scars, and freckles, as well as refine large pores and improve skin laxity.

The adaptability of RF microneedling makes it suitable for different skin types and is a viable option for individuals with tanned skin. Individuals usually experience minimal downtime, often resuming daily activities shortly after treatment. Mild side effects, such as tingling sensations, are common but tend to be transient. Consistent with any procedure, outcomes can vary, and multiple sessions are often recommended for results.

RF Microneedling Treatment Process

Consultation and Assessment

RF microneedling treatment begins with a consultation to assess skin concerns and determine the suitability of the procedure. Once cleared, the actual session starts with the cleansing of the treatment area to ensure a sterile environment.


A topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to minimise discomfort. The RF microneedling device is then adjusted to the appropriate settings based on the patient’s skin type and the area being treated.


During the procedure, the device is moved across the skin, and the needles create tiny punctures while delivering radiofrequency energy into the dermis. After the treatment, a soothing serum or balm may be applied to the skin to aid in healing and reduce inflammation. Individuals are usually advised to avoid direct sunlight and use high-SPF sunscreen as the skin is more susceptible to UV damage post-treatment. Healing is generally swift, with many individuals returning to their normal routine almost immediately, adhering to any specific aftercare instructions provided.

What Results Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?

You may see improvement in your skin after one to five sessions of the RF microneedling treatment, with reduced redness and clearer skin. RF microneedling reacts only to abnormal blood vessels and basement membranes. This enables RF microneedling to address acne scars, Melasma, Redness, Vascular lesions, PIH, etc. On tanned skin, RF microneedling targets the dermis, and minimises thermo-­stimulation on the epidermis.

However, please note that individual results may vary. As such, the number of sessions required for visible results can differ.

Is There Any Downtime After My RF Microneedling Treatment?

There is no downtime for this treatment. RF microneedling takes 10 minutes for treatment, and requires no recovery time. You can continue with your daily life directly right after treatment. It is, however, important to follow post-procedure care instructions to ensure proper healing.

    Frequently Asked Questions About RF Microneedling in Singapore

    How many RF microneedling treatments are needed before I can see the results?

    The number of RF microneedling sessions required can differ based on individual skin concerns and the extent of the area being treated. Generally, some improvement might be noticeable after several treatments, commonly between one to five. Factors such as skin type, condition severity, and individual healing processes play a role. For more information, consultation with a doctor is essential. Your doctor will evaluate the skin’s reaction to the initial treatment and adjust the number of sessions accordingly.

    How long is each RF microneedling session?

    Each session of RF microneedling is relatively brief, typically taking about 10 minutes to complete. This duration can be suitable for individuals seeking a skin treatment that fits into a busy schedule. However, the total time spent in the medical aesthetics clinic may be longer when considering the preparation and post-treatment care. The exact length of the procedure can vary depending on the size of the area being treated and the specific concerns being addressed. Check with your doctor for a more accurate estimate based on your individual treatment plan.

    Is the treatment pain-free?

    Pain level has been tremendously minimised. However, the pain level depends on the skin condition and patient. RF microneedling takes ten minutes for treatment and requires no recovery time. You can continue with your daily life directly right after treatment.

    Will there be any side effects from the RF microneedling treatment?

    RF microneedling may lead to minimal side effects such as a mild tingling sensation. These effects are typically short-lived and subside within a few days. While most individuals can return to normal activities immediately, they should avoid direct sun exposure and follow aftercare instructions to support healing and maintain treatment results. It is important to consult with your doctor for guidance.

    Can RF microneedling be combined with other treatments?

    RF microneedling can be paired with other treatments to help you manage your skin condition. For concerns like redness, hyperpigmentation, and melasma, integrating a natural radiance program could be beneficial. Additionally, combining RF microneedling with laser brightening treatments may further smooth the skin’s surface. However, it is crucial to have such combinations assessed and administered by a doctor to ensure compatibility and safety.

    What precautions should I take post-treatment to maintain the results?

    Post-treatment care is important to maintain RF microneedling results on acne scars, Melasma, and other skin concerns. Your doctor may advise you to avoid direct sunlight and to apply broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the treated area from UV damage. Refrain from using exfoliating agents or topical treatments not recommended by your doctor. It is also important to avoid strenuous exercise and high-heat environments for a few days post-treatment to prevent irritation and ensure healing. Follow any aftercare instructions provided by your doctor to support the recovery process and maintain the integrity of the treatment results.
