Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling: Toronto’s Complexion Renewal Technology (Secret)

Radiofrequency Microneedling

If you’ve heard of radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, you might wonder how this relatively new beauty-tech advancement has elevated standard microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy).

What does the addition of radiofrequency mean for your acne scars, wrinkles, and skin texture issues?

For decades, manual microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) has been considered an established skin renewal and scar treatment therapy thanks to its ability to naturally stimulate fresh collagen and smooth the skin’s surface.

Exceptionally fine needles attached to stamps or rollers create micro-channels in the dermis. These micro channels directly trigger collagenesis and allow the deep penetration of skin nutrient formulas.

Non-surgical retexturing treatments are always in demand at top laser and dermatology clinics. But now, radiofrequency microneedling in Toronto amps up the skin-firming potential of this anti-aging favourite. Sovereign Skin offers both Potenza RF microneedling by CynoSure and Darwin RF microneedling from Luvo Medical for a full spectrum of capabilities and diverse skin needs.

How Does Microneedling Work?

The elastin and collagen in your body will deteriorate over time, no matter how well you take care of your skin!

Collagen is a structural protein necessary for firm, toned faces and bodies. We first begin to see the signs of collagen loss in our 30s and 40s, as dullness, mild sagging, and fine lines appear. Additionally, enlarged pores or hyperpigmentation/ sunspots may also contribute to an uneven, dull, or aged complexion because skin cells do not replenish as quickly over the years.

Whether you first notice crow’s-feet around your eyes, fine lines around your mouth, or crepey skin on your neck, CIT using microneedling devices is a safe way to kickstart new, stronger collagen in your skin.

Microneedling works by triggering the natural healing cascade through tiny, controlled micro-injuries on the dermis. Whenever your skin receives an injury, no matter how small, your body reacts to repair the area with collagen.

Microneedling devices typically resemble rollers, fine detail pens, and stamps that contain small, short needles. These are only 1.5 mm to 3 mm long and can barely be felt. But as the micro-needling devices are pressed into the skin at a shallow, controlled depth, your body goes to work rebuilding the collagen matrix.

Over the weeks and months that follow treatment, more even-toned, smooth skin is generated. As an added bonus, temporary microchannels allow up to 80% more topical nutrients to be absorbed to feed the cells in your dermis and in the basal layer of your epidermis.

How Does RF Microneedling Work Better Than Microneedling Alone?

Whenever it’s possible to amplify a good thing, we jump on the chance! The addition of gentle radiofrequency waves to microneedling devices directs thermal energy deep into the skin at the source for collagen generation.

What this means for you is faster, more dramatic results from your RF microneedling treatment!

Radiofrequency used for RF microneedling uses roughly one billion times less energy than X-rays. This technology used for treating cosmetic skin concerns since 2001 is considered exceptionally safe and effective.

Though it may sound intimidating, RF microneedling isn’t painful. The energy is delivered through hand-held microneedling devices in pulses to directly targeted zones without causing visible damage.

Sovereign Skin RF Microneedling Technology Combines the Best of Science and Nature

LUVO Medical’s Darwin microneedling device boasts incredible skin-lifting and tightening power. Non-insulated needles release more thermal energy, which is well tolerated by lighter, Fitzpatrick 1 to 3 skin types. The Darwin RF microneedling device also offers advanced vacuum technology to help minimize discomfort.

Darwin microneedling can be used on the body and face to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, acne scars, sun damage, capillaries (spider veins), and more. This device is transformative and delivers powerful radiofrequency microneedling, but it comes with little to no downtime, so you can resume your regular activities right away.


Potenza RF microneedling by CynoSure is the world’s first RF microneedling system to combine monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency at 1 or 2MHz frequencies.

The versatility of our Potenza RF microneedling system allows us to personalize treatments for our patients based on their unique skin types, any time of year, anywhere on the body.

Potenza uses 4 different RF modes and 10 different tips to calibrate depth of treatments and a one-of-a-kind fusion tip that enhances topical penetration. A full range of skin tones from Fitzpatrick 1 to 5 are suitable candidates for Potenza.

How Can RF Microneedling Treat Your Skin Concerns?

What’s the first step to take long before a face or neck lift surgery? There are numerous non-surgical skin-tightening treatments that can naturally boost the firming, smoothing collagen and elastin that you’re missing. RF microneedling is ideal for people of all ages and can be a great first line of defence against the unwanted signs of ageing on your skin.

RF microneedling reveals stunning results for the:

  • delicate eye area
  • fine lines around the mouth
  • jowls
  • jawline
  • neck
  • tummy
  • thighs
  • and more!

Microneedling triggers fresh new collagen, elastin, and hydrating hyaluronic acid formation to rebuild supple, toned skin strength.

Our Toronto RF microneedling clients see a notable reduction in the look of large pores, age spots and sunspots, acne scars, spider veins, fine lines, thin and crepey skin, and sagging.

Together, our two renowned RF microneedling devices can safely treat all ethnicities and skin types. That means that worry-free, effective skin rejuvenation is possible for everyone.

Considerations for RF Microneedling Skin Treatment and Recovery

You’ll love the way your radiofrequency microneedling treatments don’t take much time out of your busy schedule. Unlike deep chemical peels or ablative lasers, there is no downtime, redness, or peeling to manage after treatment.

Your practitioner will explain the treatment to you and let you know what to expect, including potential side effects, before you begin. RF microneedling patients may see mild, temporary redness directly after their procedure. Some tingling or warmth is also expected during the treatment session. Sensitive skin types may experience a burning sensation, which can be managed well with topical solutions and the vacuum comfort tip. Depending on your skin needs and beauty goals, your practitioner will recommend a completely customised plan and follow-up sessions to help you achieve the skin you’re dreaming of.
