Microneedling is the process of creating microscopic channels into the superficial and deep layers of the skin. The depth can be controlled by the treatment provider. This can help to treat pigment and discoloration issues, as well as wrinkles, acne scars & other scaring. RF microneedling is the same except it has an added benefit of energy in the form of heat( radiofrequency). Examples of RF Microneedling are Morpheus8, Genius, Profound RF, infini, Factora, Vivace, Potenza, Secret. This permits skin tightening to some degree. Skin tightening with RF microneedling usually requires multiple sessions and the duration of improvement is usually several months to less than a year. This is why we like ULTHERAPY for non invasive skin tightening alone as it requires one session and usually lasts over 1.5 years, though it will NOT address acne scars, discoloration or surface issues. RF microneedling done in our office uses the Lutronic Genius which has a unique and intelligent technology to help protect the top layers of the skin while providing real-time feedback during the procedure. This allows for treatments on all skin types and colors, including tanned skin. By delivering customized energy precisely to the dermis, it creates a micro-injury to jump-start your body’s natural healing process for firm and renewed skin
Microneedling: discoloration/ brown spots/wrinkles/acne scars/skin rejuvenation/sun damaged ($375 /session)
RF Microneedling: same as microneedling and more beneficial scar revision, with additional mild skin tightening, multiple sessions required, shorter duration of results.( Prices range from $699- $1100)
WHAT IS A FRAXEL FACIAL? $325 A microdermabrasion followed by a light 5 minute exfoliating with Fraxel laser. Performed to enhance the results of microdermabrasion. Treatment time is 30 minutes done for exfoliation, skin cell turnover and glowing complexion.

Microneedling (AKA Collagen Induction Therapy), a 30 minute treatment, is used to improve tone/texture, surface imperfections and scaring, and fine lines. It creates tiny micro channels (holes) in the skin to allow it to heal itself and create collagen and elastin. We use the DermaPEN which allows for predictable depths from very superficial(0.5 mm) to very deep penetration (2.5 mm) into the skin. Additionally, serums or growth factors can be added to the treatment which permit deep absorption of growth factors, antioxidant, lightening creams and gels to enhance results depending on your specific needs. Various body areas such as the face, neck, chest and arms can be treated. It is safe for all skin types. During the treatment it may feel more like "sandpaper" than needles. After the treatment you will be slightly red for the remainder of the day. Redness typically last 1-2 days, though very intense/deeper treatments may have several days of redness. A series of 3 or more treatments maybe recommended depending on your improvement goals.
