Fractional RF microneedling is a minimally invasive, modern treatment that addresses various skin problems, including but not limited to those caused by aging. It uses ultra-fine, sterilized needles that pierce the skin’s top layer, creating micro-punctures.
When these needles reach a predetermined depth in the dermis, they radiate radiofrequency waves to the surrounding skin tissues. The controlled injuries from micro-needles and heat caused by RF waves stimulate collagen and elastin production, contributing to skin thickening and tightening.
Fractional RF microneedling is generally considered a safe and effective method for skin rejuvenation. However, it works best when provided by an experienced practitioner in a clinical setting.

Aim of the Treatment
Fractional RF microneedling aims to improve skin appearance by addressing concerns like laxity, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. This innovative treatment combines the rejuvenating benefits of microneedling treatment and radiofrequency therapy to lift and tighten the skin and give it a youthful glow. The microneedles used during this treatment target a specific skin depth, ensuring the delivery of RF waves to multiple dermal layers. This stimulates collagen and elastin production in-depth.
What are the Benefits of Fractional RF Microneedling?
RF Fractional Microneedling delivers the following benefits:
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- Diminished appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
- Improved skin tone and texture
- More radiant, glowing skin
- Enhanced collagen and elastin production, leading to smoother and tighter skin
Condition It Can Treat
Radiofrequency microneedling can help address the following skin problems:
- Early signs of aging, like fine lines and lack of elasticity
- Acne scars
- Scars caused by surgery or injury
- The appearance of large pores
- Stretch marks
Who is the Ideal Candidate for RF Fractional Microneedling?
Good candidates for RF microneedling are usually the individuals who:
- Have early aging signs
- Have realistic expectations of the treatment
- Are in good overall health
It’s important to note that individuals with certain medical conditions or those taking specific medications should consult with a healthcare professional before undergoing RF Microneedling. This includes, but is not limited to, those using Accutane, pregnant women, and individuals with active skin infections or certain skin diseases.

How is RF Fractional Microneedling performed?
RF Microneedling is typically performed in a clinical setting. It may involve the following steps:
- The treatment area is cleaned using alcohol to prevent infection.
- A numbing solution is applied to the treatment area. In some cases, practitioners inject local anesthesia instead (It should be noted that while numbing solutions and local anesthesia can reduce discomfort, they may not make the treatment completely painless for all individuals. Sensitivity varies from person to person).
- After that, a practitioner uses a microneedling device – which usually resembles dermapen – over the skin. The tip of this device has several forward-moving tiny needles that pierce the skin. Once these needles reach a particular skin depth, they release radiofrequency waves.
- The entire procedure may take 10-20 minutes. The procedure duration might be even longer in some cases, based on the treatment area’s size, the specific issues being addressed, and the machine being used.
- Depending on the patient’s requirements, the practitioner may apply growth factors to the treated region to pace up cell regeneration.
- The procedure usually concludes with the application of a soothing gel.
What does the recovery look like after RF Fractional Microneedling?
You can leave the clinic immediately after the treatment and resume your routine activities. However, there will likely be some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, which usually subside in a day or two. Your doctor may advise using an ice pack to soothe the treated area.
Furthermore, your doctor will likely advise you to avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous activities for seven days after RF Microneedling.
What results to expect from Fractional RF Microneedling?
The initial results of RF Microneedling may appear after a few days of the treatment. These results continue to improve as your body produces more collagen fibers and elastin in the treated region.
The final results of the treatment are usually visible in six months, typically when collagen production peaks.
Cost of RF Fractional Microneedling
The cost of RF Fractional Microneedling in Dubai usually starts from AED 1500 per session. The exact price of the entire treatment can vary from person to person. This is because several factors may be involved in treatment cost evaluation, such as:
- The type and severity of the skin problem
- The size of the treatment area
