RF microneedling, short for radiofrequency microneedling, is a non-invasive procedure that combines two of the most effective skin rejuvenation techniques — radiofrequency energy and microneedling. This procedure involves using a specialized RF microneedling device to create thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s surface and deliver specific wavelengths of radiofrequency into the deep dermis, leading to increased collagen production and tissue remodeling. Cohen Medical Aesthetics performs a highly personalized RF microneedling using the cutting-edge Cutera Secret RF & Morpheus8 in Thousand Oaks.

- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loss of elasticity
- Sagging skin

Boost collagen with Cutera Secret RF & Morpheus8
RF microneedling combines the benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency energy to supercharge collagen production. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together, prevents facial sagging, and maintains skin firmness. The loss of collagen is the primary reason for the onset of wrinkles and sagging skin. Our RF microneedling devices (Cutera Secret RF & Morpheus8) stimulate natural collagen production to reverse the signs of aging and tighten skin tissues.
RF microneedling involves making micro-punctures on the skin’s uppermost layers while delivering radiofrequency energy into the deep debris. Microneedling stimulates skin cell regeneration and collagen production, making your skin look smoother, firmer, and more youthful. And radiofrequency energy melts excess fat cells and triggers cellular contracture, making your facial contours look leaner and more chiseled. When combined, radiofrequency microneedling can transform your facial appearance.
Benefits of RF microneedling:
- Minimally invasive skin rejuvenation
- Minimal discomfort during the treatment
- Stimulates natural collagen production
- Reverses the signs of aging on the skin
- Concludes within 60 minutes
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Resume your daily activities and work immediately
- Completely natural results
Your RF microneedling experience in Thousand Oaks
Cohen Medical Aesthetics performs highly-curated RF microneedling treatments with both Cutera Secret RF and Morpheus8 in Thousand Oaks devices. Our cosmetic providers carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals and concerns, review your medical history, measure your skin laxity, and identify the regions with excess fat deposits. Our cosmetic providers will select the appropriate RF microneedling device for you after a thorough evaluation — both Cutera Secret RF and Morpheus8 provide stunning results, but they have minor differences that influence the treatment plan.
Your RF microneedling treatment is fairly simple. Our cosmetic providers will cleanse your facial skin and apply topical anesthesia to your skin to ensure comfort, following which the chosen RF microneedling is adjusted. Each RF microneedling device can penetrate different depths of your epidermis — our cosmetic providers will target the ideal depth for your skin conditions. The RF microneedling device creates thousands of micro-punctures, following which a soothing gel is applied to your skin.
RF microneedling: side effects and recovery
RF microneedling causes minimal post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and discomfort. Your skin might look slightly flushed, but there’s no pain. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but please avoid direct sunlight and strenuous workouts for a day or two. You must also wear strong sunscreen.
RF microneedling: onset and longevity of results
The results of RF microneedling using both Cutera Secret RF and Morpheus8 in Thousand Oaks, appear gradually over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers. Most patients need 3 to 6 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results — the final results will appear a month or two after the final session. The number of sessions depends on your skin condition and the depth of your scars. The results last 12 months, following which you need one or two maintenance sessions a year.
