How does RF Microneedling in Naperville work?

RF Microneedling is an effective way to treat a variety of tone, texture, and laxity concerns while working deep underneath the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production. 

Collagen is a protein that serves as a building block in the structure and support of your skin. It’s what keeps you looking plump and youthful and keeps the skin from becoming lax and sagging over time. As you age, your skin naturally produces less collagen, increasing the impact of skin tightening treatments like microneedling.

During an RF microneedling treatment, dozens of tiny needles on a small handpiece create micro-injuries to the skin’s surface that trigger the body’s natural healing process. This prompts fibroblast cells to increase their collagen production to rebuild and repair the “damaged” skin from the treatment and tighten the cells together.

Adding radiofrequency (RF) to your microneedling treatment supplies the dermal tissue with energy that leads to electro-coagulation, transforming fluids into solid matter. This rejuvenates the dermal fibers and aids in the collagen and elastin production process. The results are firmer and tighter skin and a clearer and smoother complexion. 

About the device

The Scarlet RF Microneedling device is a revolutionary piece of aesthetics technology. Combining the efficacy of microneedling with the advanced Scarlet RF technology brings you results faster, more comfortably, and with less downtime.

Compared to other microneedling devices, the Scarlet RF microneedling pens offers:

  • Less pain and downtime than other microneedling devices
  • No bleeding or other side effects
  • Three distinct treatment modes: face, scalp, and body
  • Tightening and lifting of the dermal tissue
  • Effective treatment of a number of skin issues, including wrinkling, scarring, acne, loss of skin elasticity, and much more

How it works: the Na Effect

Coined by renowned doctor and scientist Jongju Na, the “Na Effect” refers to the distinguishing technology behind Scarlet RF microneedling. The gold-plated electrodes use radiofrequency energy to encourage independent coagulation of the tissue around each electrode. This is opposed to widespread tissue coagulation between each electrode achieved by other, standard microneedling. This effect is also what creates a lifted appearance in the skin.

This proven science behind the Na Effect allows SMooth Solutions to deliver state-of-the-art care and healing for clients with all skin types, textures, and tones.

Treatment areas

Scarlet RF microneedling in Naperville treats many different areas of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Hands 

Depending on your unique goals, our providers can help you create a custom treatment plan to address your area of concern, or multiple.

What to expect at your microneedling treatment

Skin tightening, smoothing, and firming with Scarlet RF doesn’t have to be a disruption to your day. Microneedling treatments at SMooth Solutions last just 30-60 minutes, and total recovery time only an hour. 

Our expert providers will help you build a custom maintenance plan to keep your results fresh and glowing. Most clients need only 1-3 treatments total to experience a difference in their skin texture and radiance.

Everything that RF microneedling in Naperville can do for you

RF Microneedling treatments have a variety of different applications for patients looking to improve their overall skin health. Whether your concerns are on the surface or deep within, microneedling in Naperville can be the solution you’re looking for.

Acne treatment

Scarlet RF Microneedling is one of the few devices effective in treating both acne scars and active acne. Whether you’re struggling with persistent discoloration from past breakouts, or fighting an active breakout, Scarlet RF microneedling in Naperville works deep into your skin for a smoother tone and texture.

Skin tightening

Microneedling treats a variety of skin laxity issues from fine lines and wrinkles to sagging skin and stretch marks. Because the Scarlet RF microneedling devices can be used nearly anywhere on the body with large, flat surfaces of skin, there are so many capabilities.

Whether you’re struggling with minor crow’s feet or deep facial folds, a stubborn double chin or sagging under the neck, microneedling treatment plans at SMooth Solutions are customizable to your concerns.

Hair regrowth

That’s right! Scarlet RF microneedling can treat the scalp for both skin tightening and to promote hair regrowth. 

Microneedling for the scalp functions very similarly to treatments on the face or body; the device creates tiny microchannels in the skin that spark the body’s regeneration process and collagen production. Over a series of treatments, these proteins, combined with radiofrequency, promote better circulation in your scalp to encourage hair growth. At SMooth Solutions in Naperville we can also pair your scalp treatments with PRP and Growth Factors to provide even better outcomes for hair restoration. 

Smoothing texture

In addition to plumping and brightening the skin, microneedling can help smooth texture and create a more even surface on the skin. 

If you’re struggling with stretch marks, scars, strawberry skin, or other texture imperfections, Scarlet RF microneedling can help fortify your skin’s internal structure for a more voluminous and plump appearance.


Microneedling can also be used in the armpits to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. The micro-injuries decrease the number of functional sweat glands in the treatment area, resulting in less sweat overall.

Recovery and after-care tips following microneedling in Naperville

Taking proper care of your skin after microneedling enhances your results and ensures that they last. Here are some of our favorite tips for protecting your skin and keeping the glow alive:

Avoid sun exposure

Although RF microneedling treatments with the Scarlet device don’t require any downtime, it’s important to protect your skin from sun exposure in the weeks after your session. Try sticking to shaded areas and using proper SPF protection.

If possible, you can also be strategic about what time of year you schedule your RF microneedling appointments. People naturally experience less sun exposure in the fall and winter seasons, which makes that time of year better suited for treatments like needling, lasers, and more.

Use gentle products, not exfoliants

It’s important to be gentle with your skin after any microneedling treatment. Avoid cleansers with harsh ingredients and exfoliants, chemical or physical. Don’t use anything that may be abrasive to the skin as it’s working to heal and regenerate collagen following your treatment. Instead, look for skin care products with clean ingredients and minerals.

In the days following your treatment, remove any sweat or build-up with a gentle cleanser as soon as possible. Try and keep your face fresh and free of pollutants, including heavy makeup.

Stay extra moisturized and hydrated

After microneedling in Naperville, remember to stay hydrated! Your skin needs extra moisture from inside and out to effectively heal and replenish itself. That means drinking plenty of water, and also using medical-grade topical moisturizers.
