Ailesbury Clinic Dublin offers a variety of treatments and combined techniques in the field of aesthetic and anti-ageing medicine, including the most advanced form of Radio-Frequency Medical Micro-Needling.

The Onix machine represents the future of the aesthetics industry with world-class specifications so advanced with the Onix Radio Frequency machine leading the way in skin tightening and acne scarring. Combining these two procedures Radiofrequency and Medical Micro Needling produces more dramatic results than traditional micro needling or standalone radiofrequency treatments because when you combine the two you get all the positives of both treatments, which ultimately boosts their effectiveness.

What is Onix Radio-Frequency Micro-needling?

The Onix machine is a medical-grade machine with proven results to improve your skin tone and texture, skin tightening, helping minimise fine lines and wrinkles, and improving skin laxity, and acne scarring. Our clinical experience with the advanced Onix Machine RF needling kick-starts the biological processes for the new creation of collagen and elastin as well as delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis which further enhances skin tightening and scar reduction.


Who is Onix Radio-Frequency Micro-needling for?

Onix RF micro-needling is suitable for most skin types and tones and is perfect for those who are experiencing the following issues:

  • Facial, Neck and Decolletage skin lifting and definition of the facial structures.
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • The reduction and/or removal of acne scars
  • Skin Firming
  • Reduction of enlarged pores

Is the Microneedle Radiofrequency Treatment Safe?

RF Medical Micro Needling treatment is safe once an in-depth consultation is completed first with a medical aesthetician and once it is carried out by a qualified practitioner, using certified, good quality equipment and disposable cartridges compatible with the device.


How Long Does It Take for You to See the Results?

Immediately after the treatment, collagen fibres shrink, which makes the skin tighter. Four weeks after each treatment, you can see real results as new collagen fibres and bonds between them are formed, and the skin becomes firm and elastic.


How Long Do the Effects of Onix Last?

The effect of a series of microneedle radiofrequency treatments lasts up to 2 years. After a year, it is recommended to undergo a series of treatments again.

It is important to note that for optimal effectiveness it is suggested to have 4 treatments, four weeks apart.


What Does the Procedure of Microneedle Radiofrequency Treatment Feel Like?

Before the procedure, the skin is anesthetised with a medical-grade anaesthetic cream to provide the patient with maximum comfort. After the treatment area is disinfected, the handheld device is moved over it, puncturing the skin at appropriately adjusted depths and time intervals. While puncturing, an electromagnetic radio frequency wave is emitted.

A single exposure takes no more than a second were the patient Will feel heat applied to the area.

How long does microneedle radiofrequency treatment take? The duration of the entire treatment procedure depends on the surface of the skin that will be treated. The average time of the treatment procedure is 60 minutes.


When Can You Undergo Microneedle Radiofrequency Treatment?

You can undergo the microneedle radiofrequency treatment at any time of the year. This provides a decisive advantage over some other treatments.


What Does the Skin Look Like Immediately After the Treatment?

After the procedure, the skin is red and this typically lasts 2 days. Day 3- the patient will have track marks where the needles have been inserted into the skin. These track marks may be covered with a mineral-based make-up or mineral-based tinted moisturiser. The skin condition will improve over time due to the regenerative processes.


What Are the Recommendations After Microneedle Radiofrequency Treatment?

Alcohol and physical activity should be avoided for 24 hours after the procedure or until the redness or swelling is gone. We ask our patients to refrain from makeup use for 48 hours after the treatment and to avoid touching the face. For 14 days after the treatment, large fluctuations in temperature should also be avoided as well as the use of active skin ingredients such as retinol and glycolic acid for 7 days. Postpone skin exfoliating treatments for a period of 7 days also.
