What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Dallas, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz uses a special technique that creates excellent results for our patients using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with Morpheus8 technology by InMode. RF treatments have existed for many years and are well-known in the cosmetic industry for their skin tightening effects. This particular type of therapy is minimally invasive and uses heat to promote the creation of collagen deep within the skin to create a firmer, smoother surface. At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we are excited to offer this new advancement to our Dallas, TX individual's skin care treatments to produce firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.

"AirSculpt Waist, Flanks, Hips Was Lifechanging! - I've always struggled with losing unwanted fat and weight in my love handles, hips, and sides. I had researched so many procedure options and by far Airsculpt had the best results for the price+safety. My overall procedure and post care went great! I had very minimal swelling and I am over the moon with my results! I would recommend to anyone searching for permanent results and next to no down time involved. Also, Dr. Hanz was the best! I was pretty nervous going in, and they calmed me down and explained in detail everything the procedure entailed."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 29, 2021
"I recently started Sciton Halo and Sciton BBL treatments with Amy Sanders. Amy took the time to explain each of the treatments and what to expect before, during and after treatments. Amy’s post care attention went above and beyond making herself available by phone for any and all questions and concerns. On my follow-up appointment, I was so encouraged when I realized the entire office staff was almost as excited for my results as I was. After just one treatment of both, I have already seen such a positive improvement to my face and chest areas. I live in the San Antonio area and feel my trips up to Dr. Hanz’s office for my aesthetic procedures are 100% worth it. Dr. Hanz and his staff are wonderful and I highly recommend!"- TS / Office Visit / Apr 03, 2022

How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery uses Morpheus8 by InMode (a tool with small needles on the end) to gently press the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "interrupt" the cells and uses radiofrequency to stimulate the production of collagen. The heat from the radiofrequency encourages continuous healing of the skin, creating new skin that begins to grow as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and rejuvenated. The use of needles may sound painful, but these very fine needles provide a relatively painless procedure. After your procedure, you can typically return to your daily activities.
What Should I Expect After My RF Microneedling?
Your microneedling procedure will take place inside the Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery office with the use of numbing cream to minimize discomfort, although many find that it is relatively painless. You should anticipate small, pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours afterward, which will naturally shed when your skin has healed. You might find that your skin is red and feels like you were sunburned; this shouldn't last more than a week or so. Outcomes become visible as the skin heals over a month after a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results generally take 3 – 4 treatments scheduled one month apart.
RF Microneedling FAQ
How much does RF microneedling cost?
The cost of your RF microneedling session will vary based on your condition and the number of sessions needed to achieve the ideal results. At your first visit, Dr. Hanz will go over all your concerns and estimate your treatment costs.
How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Each person is different, and some individuals may want more sessions than others. Dr. Hanz will take the time to perform a thorough evaluation of your skin and consider your needs and goals to help decide how many treatments you will need. On average, most people receive 3 – 4 treatments spaced four weeks apart.
Does RF microneedling hurt?
Since a local anesthetic is applied to the skin, you should have little to no discomfort during the procedure. During your procedure, we will check in to make sure you are doing all right. When the local anesthesia wears off, you might feel mild discomfort briefly while your skin is healing itself.
Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?
Even though RF microneedling can deliver amazing results on its own, you may consider getting it with another procedure for more improvements. During your consultation with Dr. Hanz, he will ask about all your goals about your skin before recommending RF microneedling as well as any other treatments.
