The Ultimate Guide to Microneedling Devices and Equipment for Aesthetic Practitioners

In the ever-evolving landscape of aesthetic medicine, one procedure has been making significant waves for its effectiveness and versatility – RF microneedling. A favourite among medical professionals and skin care enthusiasts, microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates the body's natural wound healing process, resulting in increased collagen production, which can improve the appearance of various skin concerns.

But with the multitude of devices and equipment available, understanding which one is right for your practice can be a daunting task. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about microneedling devices, helping you make informed choices that enhance patient outcomes and the growth of your aesthetic practice.

Understanding RF Microneedling: The Science Behind the Procedure

What is RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with small, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in cellular turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, which can improve the skin's texture and firmness. 

Benefits of RF Microneedling

  • Reduces the appearance of scarring, such as from acne or surgery
  • Fades stretch marks
  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Reduces the size of pores
  • Enhances the penetration and effectiveness of skincare products

Types of RF Microneedling Devices

RF Radiofrequency Microneedling

A step above traditional microneedling, radiofrequency (RF) microneedling utilises energy in the form of radio waves to heat the targeted tissue. This combination of microneedling and RF technology provides more effective collagen induction and skin tightening.

Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling Device

Scarlet S RF distributes RF energy through 25 non-insulated microneedles, creating electrocoagulation of soft tissue. This generates the creation of dermal collagen and elastin fibre in the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. Only a single pass is required with independent coagulation around each electrode. Smooth & consistent robotic motor delivery. The “Na Effect” in combination with fast treatment creates better patient experiences

Scarlet S is a revolutionary treatment that utilises RF (Radio Frequency) and microneedling to rebuild collagen in the skin. This treatment will smooth fine lines, tighten skin, decrease pore size and improve the texture of the skin. It will also drastically improve acne and acne scarring. Scarlet S delivers visible results with less pain, less downtime and no bleeding regardless of skin type.

Implementing RF Microneedling in Your Practice

Choosing the right equipment

Novus Medical have hand picked a range of class leading clinically proven technologies and devices. Numerous of these devices are regularly featured in national press and attract a lot of attention and ultimately footfall for clinics.

Educate Your Patients

Educate your patients about the microneedling procedure, its benefits, expectations, and aftercare practices. Informed patients are more likely to comply with pre and post-treatment protocols, leading to better outcomes.

Marketing and Patient Acquisition

Create a marketing strategy to promote your new microneedling services. Utilise various channels, from social media to educational seminars, to attract new patients to your clinic.

Post-Treatment Best Practices

To ensure optimal results, post-treatment care is as important as the microneedling procedure itself. Here are some best practices to share with your patients:

Skincare Regimen

Encourage patients to use high-quality, recommended skincare products post-treatment to enhance results and support the skin’s healing process.

Sun Protection

Emphasise the importance of sun protection. Direct sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation and cancel out the benefits of microneedling.

Follow-Up Treatments

Stress the significance of consistent follow-up treatments to achieve the best long-term results. A series of treatments is typically required for full benefits and maintaining results.


RF Microneedling devices and equipment represent a significant opportunity for aesthetic practitioners to deliver high-impact treatments that address a wide range of skincare concerns. By understanding the science, type of devices, selection process, implementation steps, best practices, troubleshooting, and business benefits, you'll be well-equipped to integrate microneedling into your practice successfully.

For medical professionals and aesthetic practitioners, the journey to offering RF microneedling services is an exciting one. It dovetails clinical expertise with business acumen and patient care, leading to a well-rounded and thriving practice. Take the time to choose the right microneedling device for your specific needs, invest in comprehensive training, and make patient care a priority. With the right approach, microneedling can transform your practice and the lives of your patients.
