RF Microneedling

Have you been noticing the early signs of aging, such as uninvited wrinkles or droopy skin? Is your skin discolored or covered in tissue scarring? If so, you may be the perfect candidate for RF Microneedling in Boston! As a non-surgical skin tightening procedure, it’s hard to exceed Microneedling, but when you combine radiofrequency waves with it, your results are magnified! The practice of Vickram Tandon, MD offers our patients in Boston RF Microneedling as a quick and effective way to treat their skin impurities.

What Is RF Microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling combines fractional radiofrequency technology with microdermabrasion to treat the lower layers of your skin. The second layer of your skin (dermis) contains cells that contribute to the formation of connective tissue called fibroblasts, which are responsible for producing collagen and elastin. This process can soften fine lines and wrinkles, or help reduce scarring.


The Microneedling machine penetrates the top layer of skin, creating microchannels with extremely tiny needles that are connected to the headpiece. As Dr. Tandon applies pressure to your skin with the headpiece, heat energy is delivered into your dermis at predetermined depths to encourage collagen and elastin production.


RF Microneedling can be used to treat the following skin conditions:

Patients are usually able to see tremendous improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, pore size, scars including acne, and skin laxity after about three treatments, spaced apart every six weeks.

What Are The Benefits Of A RF Microneedling?

Our Boston RF Microneedling patients have been able to enjoy the following benefits after their treatments:


  • Brighter, more youthful-looking skin
  • Can be done on any part of the body
  • Customizable (pairs great with chemical peels and microdermabrasion)
  • Encourages collagen and elastin production
  • Evens out skin tone and decreases hyperpigmentation
  • Gives you smoother, firmer skin
  • Improved skin texture
  • Makes your pores smaller and tighter
  • Reduces visibility of acne scarring and other scars

Who Are The Best Candidates For A RF Microneedling?

RF Microneedling from Vickram Tandon, MD can be a great treatment for practically everyone. We do believe that the best candidates should have some of the following characteristics:


  • Be overall healthy
  • Have texture irregularities, loose skin, or uneven skin tone
  • Maintain realistic expectations for treatment results
  • Want to address fine lines and moderate wrinkles in difficult areas (i.e. on the forehead or around their eyes)


Unfortunately, if you have any active acne, infections, or wound-healing issues, this treatment may not be right for you at this time.

What To Expect On The Day Of RF Microneedling?

On the day of your RF Microneedling, you will first be comfortably sat in our reclining chair. The area being treated will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied to make your experience more comfortable.


Dr. Tandon will then use the handheld RF Microneedling device, running it in deliberate patterns across your skin. The device makes micro-punctures while simultaneously emitting the RF waves to the deeper layers of your dermis. Once the entire area has been treated, a soothing ointment will be applied which will help reduce any residual pain following your treatment.


The procedure takes about 10 to 20 minutes, but the duration can fluctuate depending on the treatment type and area of the procedure.

What's the first step?

The first step in getting RF Microneedling treatment in Boston is to schedule a consultation at the office of Vickram Tandon, MD.

RF Microneedling Recovery

You will have practically zero downtime after your RF Microneedling treatment and should have no problem returning to your daily routine. Keep in mind that your skin will have a pink hue to it, very similar to a light sunburn, but most people will recover within one to three days. If you are outside during this time, please wear quality SPF sunscreen to protect your new skin.
