RF Micro Needling

Showing your skin who is boss.


Fractional RF is our advanced skin treatment which achieves superior results for a range of aesthetic skin concerns. This treatment stimulates your skin to firm, plump and repair itself. It uses the combination of fractional radio frequency and dermal stamping to reduce pigmentation and the appearance of scars and large pores. It also encourages your skin’s own repair process for a beautiful skin tone and so much more.

This treatment is versatile and can be tailored to effectively treat many aesthetic skin concerns on the face and body.

We can treat:

• Loose or sagging skin

• Stretch marks

• Acne scarring

• Unsightly blemishes

• Acne

• Open pores

• Fine lines and wrinkles

• General redness and rosacea

• Poor skin tone & texture

• Rejuvenation

Future proofing your skin.

The combination of Fractional RF and micro-needling involves direct energy into the layers of the skin. This micro-needle treatment will stimulate and re-energise the skin which promotes revival of tired and dull skin.

Fractional RF is used to tighten and firm facial contours which become lax and sag as you age. Skin becomes firmer around the jawline, chin, and cheeks while lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead are reduced. The result is a more youthful appearance with greater skin elasticity and lift to the face.

Acne Scarring and Stretch Marks

The advanced combination of radio frequency and micro-needle technology effectively removes the scarred skin imperfections resulting from acne or stretch marks. As the skin is deeply stimulated, it is renewed to look healthier, firmer, and more refined. This results in a more even skin texture with a visible reduction in scars.


Application of RF energy targets the skin’s natural renewal processes, releasing and reviving new energy in the skin. This re-energized skin rapidly plumps and becomes strengthened, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This all results in younger, smoother looking skin.

Rosacea/General Redness/Flushing

The radio frequency is used to strengthen the skin redressing the underlying causes of redness and irritation; this results in dramatically improved skin tone and colour.


Fractional RF creates micro channels that release oil build up and free your congested skin from this burden. Although some lasers can be used in the same way, we find that this combined treatment is less painful and readily tolerated. When the Radio Frequency energy is applied in combination with micro-needles, we are also able to reduce the appearance of scarring, redness, and irritation. This makes a noticeable difference to acne prone skin.

Open Pores

Fractional RF visibly treats open pores, by opening new micro-channels in the skin allowing it to breath more easily. Pore size is significantly improved over 2-5 treatments.


What is Fractional RF Needling

One of the most promising new technologies for aesthetic treatments is the combination of two methods previously used individually for skin rejuvenation, micro-needling, and radiofrequency. This combination therapy, known as fractionated radiofrequency, is effective for improvement in acne and acne scars, as well as fine lines and wrinkles, both on and off the face. It can also be used for all skin types and is associated with minimal downtime and few complications.

The treatment allows for precision in treatment through its ability to control the intensity of the energy, the depth of delivery, and the pulse duration. Insulated needles allow for sparing of the epidermis and allows for its use in all skin types while decreasing the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Side-effects and downtime are significantly reduced compared to other energy-based devices used for skin rejuvenation.

How many treatments will I need?

Most clients see benefit following one treatment. We recommend 3-4 treatment sessions for optimal results.

What can I expect after Dermal needling treatment?

Your skin will be red and inflamed for about 24-48hrs, this will look and feel like sunburn.

Massage and excessive sun exposure should be avoided at this time. More aggressive treatments may result in skin flaking as the new skin layer regenerates. Moisturisers and a broad-spectrum sunscreen are highly recommended during this recovery phase.

What does it cost?

Each session will cost $300, this includes pre-treatment anaesthetic cream to make the treatment more comfortable. We also use top of the line post treatment products to penetrate the dermis and provide optimal recovery. We then finish off the treatment with a MAX LED session to assist the wound healing process and take your skin to the next level!

Fractional Radiofrequency Skin Rejuvenation

Fractional Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that delivers heat to dermal tissue while the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) remains relatively intact. This stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting in rejuvenation of the skin tissue.

RF rejuvenation differs from traditional fractional rejuvenation in that it does not use laser or light technology, so it is suitable for lighter and darker skin types, and for treatment of the eye area. During treatment, only 5% of the epidermis is affected to allow heat to enter the deeper skin tissue, so the rate of healing is rapid with little downtime. RF is used to improve fine lines, particularly of the eye area, general skin texture and appearance, and early or mild acne scarring.

RF is used in combination with other therapies to treat active acne with very impressive results after 4-5 treatments.

    Is the treatment safe and how long does it take?

    RF is one of the safest cosmetic treatments offered because it is non-invasive and works by heating the deeper layers of the skin keeping the outer layers intact. This treatment is suitable for any skin type including darker skin types.

    Will I feel it?

    The treatment is well tolerated in most clients. Most people report a ‘prickling’ sensation followed by a ‘sting’. This can be uncomfortable in sensitive areas such as around the eyes. Numbing cream is applied complimentary for this treatment.

    Is there any downtime associated with the treatment?

    RF fractional resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment so there is extraordinarily little downtime associated with this procedure. Most clients experience erythema (redness), warmth and mild stinging in the area for a few hours to 3-5 days (higher settings) following the treatment. Cooling is recommended by fanning the treated area. Temporary ‘patterning’ of the skin can occur in some skin types. This is easily covered by makeup. Minor flaking and peeling and prolonged erythema (redness) of the skin can occur at higher settings but your therapist will let you know if this is likely to happen. Oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) can be used.

    What areas of the body can be treated?

    Any area can be treated but the recommended areas for this treatment are the face, neck, around the mouth and eyes, décolletage, and hands.

    How many treatments will I need?

    Although you will likely see some improvement in your skin after your first treatment, most people experience optimal improvement over the course of 3-5 treatments with 4-6 weeks between treatments.

    Dermapen Skin Needling

    Erase your skin’s past with our most popular anti-ageing treatment. Dermapen uses the world’s most advanced skin needling technology to stimulate the production of collagen to create smoother, healthier skin. It reduces acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring with less down time and better results than ever before.

    What is Dermapen Skin Needling?

    Dermapen is our No.1 Anti-Ageing treatment and uses the worlds most advanced Skin Needling technology, to stimulate collagen production and renewal – resulting in smoother and more youthful looking skin. Clear Skincare Clinics’ Dermapen is the perfect treatment for treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, skin texture and an overall rejuvenation of the skin. Dermapen’s incredible results for anti-ageing and scarring are due to its unique patented technology. The Dermapen penetrates and vibrates the skin at a speed of 108 per second, making 1296 micro channels per second. By creating these micro-punctures in the skin, it stimulates collagen production, tightens pores, improve muscle tone and reduces fine lines and wrinkles Micro needling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. It’s also called skin needling, collagen induction 


    What is Dermapen skin needling?

    Dermapen treatments are popular and innovative anti-aging and scar correction procedures designed to rejuvenate the skin making it look smoother and more youthful. Currently the world’s most advanced skin needling technology, in comparison to other skin rejuvenating procedures Dermapen is relatively non-invasive, painless, and inexpensive, giving you fresh and fabulous new-looking skin.

    As the name suggests, the Dermapen is a small, pen-like tool which delivers multiple tiny punctures to the skin. While it’s small in stature the Dermapen is big on results, proving to be an effective treatment for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, treating acne scars, improving skin texture, minimising pores, and providing an overall rejuvenation of the skin.

    But don’t worry if you are needle-phobic, you won’t need to see the microscopic needles contained within the Dermapen – and they’re so tiny.

    How does Dermapen work?

    The Dermapen device uses many vibrating, fine needles that create multiple micro-channels in the skin. Suitable for all skin types, the Dermapen works at a precise needle depth, rapidly penetrating the skin to produce tiny micro punctures. This technique stimulates the skin’s natural healing process to produce the two proteins needed for supple, smooth, and youthful skin – collagen and elastin.

    While we sometimes endure pain for the sake of beauty (hmm, waxing springs to mind!) the good news is that Dermapen anti-ageing treatments cause minimal pain procedures. Numbing cream may be used for many skin treatments but the vibrating effect of the Dermapen interrupts the pain receptors in the skin which means numbing cream isn’t necessary. How clever is that! In fact, Clear Skincare Clinic clients find the Dermapen micro-needling process quite comfortable.

    That is partly because the Dermapen isn’t rolled or dragged across the skin like a dermal roller, so the tiny punctures are cleaner, more direct, and less painful without that dragging or tearing sensation of the needles rolling across the skin.

    How effective is Dermapen?

    The Dermapen treatment is a natural, mechanical process which works effectively without the use of chemicals.

    The side effects post-treatment are minor and may include slight swelling and discomfort, redness or minor flaking of the skin. Slight bruising is possible in people with sensitive skin prone to bruising easily.

    We all heal at different rates, but generally, you should see the effectiveness of the Dermapen beginning to work as your skin starts to heal within four to seven days post-treatment. Within four to six weeks you are ready for your next session where the positive results will become cumulative.


    In the weeks post-treatment, Puravida Beauty clients report a glam new look with noticeably smoother, younger-looking, rejuvenated skin.

    Is needling good for your skin?

    Skin needling stimulates the production of collagen, it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as improves skin sagging and refines pores. Acne scarring will benefit from micro needling, as will your overall skin texture Skin needling is a derma roller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Micro needling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

      How painful is Dermapen?

      Due to its amazing technology, unlike other Meso Needling pens the Dermapen does not require skin numbing prior to treatments. When you have a Dermapen treatment, your experience will likely be less painful (if you feel any pain at all). Because the needles are not angled and enter the skin at a perfect 90-degree angle, there is no pain associated with the rolling action of the dermal roller.

      How many treatments are needed?

      Treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. We recommend starting with 3 treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. Results can be seen from one to eight weeks after treatment. Typically, you will see results after your first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments.

      Can Dermapen be performed on all skin types?

      Dermapen Skin Needling is safe for all skin types. Skin needling does not contain any harsh chemicals or ingredients that skin may react to, rather is stimulating the skin’s natural healing process through collagen induction therapy which is both safe and effective for every skin type.

      What will my skin look like straight after my treatments?

      Directly after a treatment your skin will appear flushed, with slight redness and possible mild swelling in treated skin areas. Depending on the intensity of the treatment you may experience light flaking. Majority of the redness should subside within 24 hours and skin will be totally headed within 2-5 days. This amazing treatment has virtually no downtime.

      How can I maximise results?

      Maximise your Dermapen Skin Needling results by combining an RF Radio Frequency treatment. This combination simultaneously treats the skin’s surface as well as the deeper layers of the skin to tighten skin and improve fine lines, wrinkles, skin elasticity, thinning skin, and facial acne scarring. We use Radio Frequency and Dermapen Skin Needling to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process and generate new skin cells. As a result, the skin’s texture is improved, skin layer are repaired and tissues are lifted and strengthened. If your skin is scarred, wrinkled, sagging or pigmented, RF and Dermapen Skin Needling may be the perfect treatment for you.

      Skin needling or micro needling and radio frequency are both treatments that are normally performed individually to induce new collagen to improve the skin. We recommend combining both together in a single treatment to synergise their effects on the skin. Skin needling is used to create thousands of micro-injuries to the skin. This mechanically induces the production of new collagen in the skin by creating a small injury to the skin that the skin repairs by producing more collagen.

      Radio frequency RF treatments generate heat in the skin to produce new collagen. Research has shown that heating the skin can cause collagen fibers to shrink and tighten immediately. When heated to 40 degrees the body’s wound healing process is stimulated to further generate more collagen and elastin.

      Is Dermapen worth it?

      While the years and the elements take a toll on our skin and we naturally produce less collagen as we age, Dermapen treatments are a chemical-free way to roll back the clock. As the fine needles stimulate the Dermapen stimulates the epidermal layers of the skin where collagen and elastin are produced, the Dermapen is a more penetrative treatment for treating scarring, fine lines and wrinkles than skincare creams which treat the outer layers of the skin. It is less invasive and far more affordable than other types of scar revision treatments, and the recovery time is brief – because who wants to hide for days on end?

      One of the additional perks of the Dermapen treatment is that your renewed skin is better able to absorb the nutrients from your skincare products, so serums, eye creams, moisturisers and masks are working more efficiently and become more cost-effective.

      When you consider that anti-ageing, scar-correcting Dermapen treatments result in multiple benefits and visible improvements to a number of skin conditions for a fraction of the cost of some alternatives, it is definitely worth it.
