Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling With PRF: Six Common Skin Problems It Can Remedy

Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling With PRF: Six Common Skin Problems It Can Remedy

When you get hurt, your body springs into action. You’ve probably marveled as a cut or sprain healed. Your body registers injuries and directs resources to the area so you can function through the years.

Applying that knowledge to your skin can make a dramatic difference. By tricking your skin into thinking it’s been injured, you can kickstart the creation of new, healthy, beautiful-looking cells. At the same time, you can encourage the production of collagen, the protein that supports your skin and prevents wrinkles. 

RF Microneedling does all of this by pricking the surface of your skin with tiny needles. And when Norman J. Pastorek, MD, and Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, apply platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) afterward so it can penetrate into the channels RF microneedling creates, it delivers serious skin rejuvenation

We offer RF microneedling with PRF at our offices on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City and in Madison, Connecticut. With this treatment, we can transform your skin by addressing the following problems.

1. Dark spots

You get dark spots on your skin when your body creates too much pigment. This can happen as a result of sun exposure or aging. 

Fortunately, with RF microneedling, we can break up that pigment while encouraging your skin to create new cells that don’t have excess pigment. With each RF microneedling with PRF treatment, you should see your dark spots get progressively lighter. 

2. Large pores

Are you bothered by enlarged pores? With RF microneedling with PRF, we can encourage your skin to create new collagen. More of this protein can help to fill in large pores, giving you a smoother, more even complexion. 

3. Skin laxity

Speaking of collagen, it also acts as the scaffolding that helps to keep your skin taut. Your body makes less collagen as you age, though, so skin laxity creeps in through the years. 

Fortunately, RF microneedling with PRF can help you stimulate collagen production, preventing and potentially even reversing laxity. 

4. Dull skin

The PRF we apply after RF microneedling delivers growth factors, helping your skin create new, healthy cells. As these unblemished cells come to the surface, they deliver a radiant, glowing complexion. 

5. Scarring

RF Microneedling helps to break up scar tissue. Then, the new collagen works to fill in dips and pits while the PRF encourages new skin growth in the area, minimizing the appearance of your scar. 

6. Fine lines

Are you picking up on a theme? RF Microneedling with PRF encourages newness: new skin cells and new collagen development. As a result, it helps to fight something that makes you look old — fine lines. 


If you want to address one or more of these issues, don’t hesitate to call one of our offices or schedule your appointment online today.
