What is RF Microneedling?

​​Scarlet RF is a short-pulse radiofrequency (RF) treatment that stimulates collagen production to improve the appearance of the skin.

One of the main benefits of Scarlet RF microneedling is that it is a minimally invasive treatment that does not require any downtime or recovery period. The treatment process involves the use of a device with fine needles that deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. The needles create small micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and encouraging the production of collagen, a protein that helps plump and firm the skin.

Treatment Areas

Practically anyone may benefit from Scarlet RF microneedling. It is great for all skin types and may be used on the:

  • Face
  • Scalp
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees

What to Expect

During the treatment, a numbing cream may be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort. The treatment typically takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. After the treatment, patients may experience some redness and swelling, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days.

Benefits of Scarlet RF microneedling include:

  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved collagen production
  • Improved skin elasticity and firmness
  • Reduced appearance of acne scars

It is important to note that results from Scarlet RF microneedling may vary, and multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results. Therefore, it is important to discuss your treatment goals and expectations with a qualified healthcare provider at Cascade Eye & Skin Centers to determine if this treatment is right for you.


​​Most patients return to their regular activities immediately following a Scarlet RF microneedling treatment. There is minimal to no downtime required, and there is little to no bleeding or sensitivity involved. Patients should follow any post-treatment instructions from their healthcare provider and use sunscreen to protect their skin from sun damage.
