It keeps ticking forward, and as the hands of time change, so does our skin. Have you been bothered by early signs of aging, such as uninvited wrinkles or droopy skin? Are you tired of skin discoloration or tissue scarring on your face and body? Then you may be the perfect candidate for RF Microneedling in Pennsylvania. When it comes to non-surgical skin tightening, it’s hard to exceed Microneedling. The treatment has been increasingly popular over the last few years and has become a familiar name for go-to procedures.
The advancements and developments in this market have provided us with RF Microneedling, an enhanced version of the original procedure that offers even more fantastic results. At Pure by Alpha Dermatology, we aim to deliver our Bucks County patients the best in Microneedling and RF Microneedling results. This page is dedicated to helping you understand what Microneedling is and if it can help enhance your daily life.
RF Microneedling Vs. Microneedling, What’s the Difference?
We specialize in both treatments, and in some cases, one will work better for a specific patient. RF and Microneedling both make use of a technique called collagen induction therapy. This is done by piercing the skin and generating tiny micro-wounds. Standard Microneedling can trigger your skin’s collagen production, achieving extreme improvement in concerns like texture and appearance. Our patients have found incredible success with Microneedling, and if you have never received collagen induction therapy, it may be the perfect place to start.
Traditional Microneedling stops there, however, while RF Microneedling is a more advanced version of the traditional method. RF Microneedling utilizes ultrafine needles, along with LED lights that emit radiofrequency waves assisting in producing thermal energy. The process involves stimulating your skin’s repair response, encouraging the body to produce collagen naturally.
More on RF Microneedling?
RF, or Radiofrequency Microneedling, is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, and sagging skin. While traditional Microneedling has been utilized for decades, this latest innovative procedure incorporates radiofrequency energy to aid the rejuvenation process. The RF waves are activated with the device and are emitted through needles to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin. This FDA-approved process triggers your body’s natural healing and regeneration process. If the word “needles” make you nervous, in this case, it shouldn’t. The needles on the RF device are microscopic and designed to create a gentle, stimulating, and minimally invasive experience.
What are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling treatment is safe for many ages, genders, and skin types. It’s generally considered to be used on the face but can be performed on almost any area of the body with wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring. At Pure by Alpha Dermatology, we have seen our Pennsylvania patients enjoy the following benefits from their RF Microneedling treatment:
- Smoother, firmer skin
- More even skin tone with decreased hyperpigmentation
- Brighter, more youthful-looking skin
- Smaller, tighter pores
- Reduced visibility of acne scarring and other scars
- Improved skin texture
If you’re looking for a world-class technique with fewer sessions, greater visibility, and better results, then you may be the perfect patient for RF Microneedling. Though we see all ages for RF, the ideal candidate for the most stunning results is middle-aged, in relatively good health, and has early signs of aging or skin complications such as:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines
- Premature aging
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin texture and tone

What to Expect on the Day of RF Microneedling
On the day of your RF Microneelding treatment in New Hope or Sellersville, we aspire to make you feel as relaxed and assured as possible. Our technician team will clean the area we are looking to enhance, and then a topical anesthetic will be applied to make you as comfortable as possible moving forward. The RF device is used directly on your skin and creates tiny puncture wounds. Simultaneously, the tip of the needle releases radiofrequency waves into these tiny wounds. Finally, you will have a soothing solution applied to the area of RF treatment, offering ease on the skin. The procedure takes about 10 to 20 minutes, but the duration can fluctuate depending on the treatment type and area of the procedure.
RF Microneedling Recovery
Following RF treatment, there is minimal downtime required for your recovery. You can expect only minor side effects, including a minimal degree of discomfort, redness, or irritation. These are natural occurrences and shouldn’t last more than 24hrs after the treatment; patients can resume their normal activities within a day.

Your procedure questions answered.
Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!
The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
Love the place! The team is wonderful, skilled and very calming. Dr. Shrager is my favorite! Oh, and the renovation looks amazing!
