We are proud to use the award-winning Lipofirm Med system to deliver RF microneedling treatments that give exceptional skin tightening results.
RF microneedling, also known as radio frequency microneedling combines two clinically proven technologies into one to work into the deep layers of the skin.
Radio frequency energy is passed into the dermal layer of the skin via the tiny microneedles. This rf energy heats the dermal layer causing existing collagen and elastin to tighten whilst simultaneously boosting new collagen production.
By creating micro injuries to the skins surface with the mirco needles we also stimulate the bodies natural healing response, again stimulating new collagen production but also regenerating the skins outer layer for fresher, clearer skin.
RF microneedling is recommended to treat fine lines & wrinkles, crows feet, laughter lines and frown lines, large pores and stretch marks.
RF Microneedling Results
When we reach the age of 25 our collagen and elastin production starts to decline, and each year after this we see a further 1-2% decline in production. To combat the effects of this we use radio frequency (RF) to tighten existing collagen and elastin and stimulate new production in the months following treatment.
You can expect to see results such as:
- Instant tightening & lifting effect
- Brighter complexion
- Reduction in fine lines & wrinkles
- A more even skin tone and texture
- A more contoured appearance in areas such as the cheeks and jowls
- Further gradual skin tightening in the months following treatment
We recommend a course of 3-4 microneedling treatments in order to get maximum skin tightening an lifting results. Each treatment will be carried out 2-3 weeks apart in order to let the skin fully heal between treatments.
The below images show the results that can be achieved with a course of rf microneedling treatments. Fine lines & wrinkles are smoothed and reduced, eyelids are lifted, jowls are contoured and skin is brighter and more even in tone.
Please get in touch or book a free consultation if you would like to discuss the treatment and results.
What to expect from RF microneedling?
When having an RF microneedling treatment at Aqua-Tox you can expect the following stages during treatment.
- To complete a detailed medical questionnaire and follow pre-care advice ahead of your treatment
- A short consultation prior to the treatment to walk you through the procedure and answer any questions
- To have some photos taken of your face before beginning treatment in order to be able to assess results.
- The therapist will ask for your feedback throughout the treatment to ensure it is comfortable. The needles used are just 0.2mm in length and most people do not find this painful.
- You will experience some redness following treatment and possibly some swelling or mild bruising. It is important to follow the pre care and aftercare advise given in order to minimise these effects.
- Further photos will be taken after the treatment to show immediate skin condition and results.
- You will be able to return to your day following treatment but may want to stay at home if possible due to redness and not being able to use skincare or make-up products,
RF Microneedling Treatment Options
Lipofirm facials use radiofrequency technology to penetrate deep into the skin and wake up the metabolism of the fibroblast cells which produce elastin and collagen. When we reach the age of 25 our collagen and elastin production starts to decline, and each year after this we see a further 1-2% decline in production. To combat the effects of this we use the Lipofirm to stimulate increased collagen and elastin production and to trigger dynamic muscle activation for toning.

Radiofrequency Microneedling FAQs
What are the benefits of RF microneedling?
RF microneedling combines microneedling and radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production, resulting in improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and enhanced overall skin tightness. It's effective for treating acne scars and promoting a more youthful complexion.
Does microneeding with RF really work?
Yes, RF microneedling is clinically proven to be effective. The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency stimulates collagen production, promoting skin rejuvenation and addressing various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
Why is RF microneedling expensive?
The cost of RF microneedling reflects the advanced technology involved and the expertise required for the procedure. The equipment and maintenance, along with the skill of the therapist, contribute to the overall expense.
What will my face look like after RF microneedling?
After RF microneedling, you may experience some redness and swelling, but these typically subside within a few days. The result is smoother, tighter skin with improved texture and a youthful glow.
How painful is RF microneedling?
Discomfort during RF microneedling is minimal, you may feel a mild tingling or warmth, but the pain is generally well-tolerated.
How many sessions of RF needling do you need?
The number of sessions varies based on individual skin concerns and goals. Typically, patients may see significant improvement after 3-4 sessions, with additional treatments for optimal results.
How long do RF needling results last?
Results from RF microneedling can last for a year or more, depending on factors like skin care, sun protection, and lifestyle. Maintenance sessions may be recommended to prolong the benefits.
Is Morpheus 8 better than RF microneedling?
Morpheus 8 is a type of RF microneedling, utilising advanced technology for enhanced results. It offers precision and customization, making it a popular choice, but both Morpheus 8 and traditional RF microneedling such as the Lipofirm Med used at Aqua-Tox can be effective depending on individual needs. Morpheus 8 is a far more invasive RF microneedling procedure than Lipofirm Med, requiring topical anaesthesia and significant downtime so is often not chosen as a first step into RF Microneedling treatments.
Which is better RF microneedling or laser?
Both RF microneedling and laser skin treatments have their merits. RF microneedling is effective for collagen stimulation, while lasers can target both specific skin issues and overall skin health and appearance. The choice depends on individual concerns, and a consultation with one of our therapists is recommended if you're unsure of which is most suitable for your skin.
Is RF microneedling better than Botox?
RF microneedling and Botox serve different purposes. RF microneedling enhances skin texture and tightness, while Botox addresses dynamic wrinkles. The choice depends on specific aesthetic goals, and a combination of both may be suitable. A consultation with our Aesthetics nurse Lucy is advisable if considering both treatments.
What can go wrong with RF microneedling?
While RF microneedling is generally safe, risks may include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising. Adhering to post-treatment care instructions, choosing a qualified therapist and reputable clinic reduces the likelihood of complications.
What is the difference between microneedling and RF microneedling?
Microneedling involves creating micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen. RF microneedling adds radiofrequency energy, enhancing collagen production and providing additional skin tightening benefits for more comprehensive results.
