Facial Rejuvenation in Beverly Hills
Aging is a process. It gradually creeps up on us. One week, we might notice wrinkles or fine lines one day that we don’t remember being there just the week before. Fortunately, we don’t have to remain passive victims of the aging process. We can reclaim control of our appearance by employing advanced anti-aging techniques such as microneedling with radiofrequency.

What Is MicroNeedling RF?
Sometimes called a non-surgical face-lift, microneedling RF is a revolutionary energy-based, skin-needling treatment. It’s designed to stimulate new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid production — the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. It’s a great treatment for improving aging skin and can also help to reduce dreaded cellulite.
How Does Microneedling RF Work?
The RF method combines microneedling and radiofrequency technologies for advanced skin tightening and rejuvenating effect. It works by penetrating the skin at a precise depth with tiny needles, before momentarily releasing a burst of radiofrequency energy (heat).
The heat energy expedites the production of new collagen and elastin and attracts hyaluronic acid to the treated area. Collagen and elastin help maintain a healthy structure that supports the skin and repairs damaged skin. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin hydrated.
Professional microneedling with RF is not something you can accomplish at home. Some companies sell home micro-rollers that might be advertised as being just as good as professional microneedling. Don’t believe the hype. You might save money but you can’t achieve the results that an anti-aging professional can achieve with medical grade devices. You might also take on unnecessary risks that you want to avoid.
Microneedling with radiofrequency refreshes your complexion and rejuvenates your skin. It can reduce scarring and help revitalize your skin so it glows with youthful radiance. Unlike other treatments, it can treat all skin types including the darker Fitzpatrick Types IV and V as it doesn’t result in hyperpigmentation. Microneedling RF also treats moderate and even severe acne scars by naturally reducing their intensity.
Ideal candidates are in good health and not experiencing an active acne outbreak. They should also carry realistic expectations. While microneedling RF can achieve impressive results, it’s not like Photoshopping a digital image; you can’t adjust your actual skin tone.
Where Can Microneedling Be Used?
It is most often used around the mouth, cheeks, and on the neck but it can also be used on the body to fade scars and stretch marks, rejuvenate skin and diminish the appearance of cellulite.
Microneedling with Radiofrequency Can Treat
- Wrinkles and facial lines
- Scarring from acne
- Photodamaged skin
- Uneven skin tone, spots, and texture

How to Prepare for Microneedling RF
To prepare for radiofrequency microneedling, you should avoid alcohol and other anti-inflammatory medication such as aspirin, Aleve, Motrin, and ibuprofen. These substances can contribute to bleeding or bruising after your procedure. You should also pause the use of certain topical skin cleansers such as salicylic acid. Ask Dr. Omidi about any other medications you are taking. You might be asked to pause certain medications such as blood-thinners until after your procedure.
Each 45-minute treatment begins with an injection of local anesthesia to numb the area that’s being treated. Then, your technician presses the handheld device into your skin, and the disposable cartridge generates heat while 12 tiny needles create micro-injuries in your epidermis. Your clinician lifts and moves the device to treat each small patch of skin until the entire area has been treated.
There is little or no downtime or extensive recovery associated with radiofrequency microneedling. However, if you have a social or professional event you are preparing for, then consider scheduling your session for a week prior to your event. This way, any redness will have subsided and you’ll be ready to showcase your alluring results.
When Will I See the Results?
Patients can expect to see their full result from the treatment approximately three months after the date of their procedure. The results are long-lasting. Microneedling with radiofrequency effectively resets the hands of time. We can’t stop the aging process altogether, but we can push back the point from which it starts. Microneedling supplemented with radiofrequency has proven results in improving skin texture and reducing pore size. Studies report high rates of patient satisfaction. Research also indicates it can be a reliable treatment for rosacea, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and general issues of skin laxity. Clinical studies suggest the procedure generates up to five times more elastin and doubles collagen production.
