“Microneedling is a popular procedure because it addresses a wide range of common skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, various types of scars, sun damage, skin laxity, and uneven skin tone and texture. We decided early on to invest into the best and most innovative microneedling devices on the market, and our patients are reaping the benefits of that decision and loving the results!”- Liet N. Le, MD
Microneedling, which is also known as Micro-needling, Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a very effective and all-natural treatment option for patients who have great expectations about refreshing the appearance of their skin. Patients who undergo microneedling treatments report that they notice impeccable results and receive numerous compliments about how their skin looks younger, more radiant, and especially - GLOWING!
At Radiant Dermatology & Aesthetics, we offer both traditional microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen® and radiofrequency microneedling with our revolutionary Fraxis Duo Fractional CO2 Laser.
We also offer our patients radiofrequency (rf) microneedling with our revolutionary Fraxis Duo Fractional CO2 Laser device. Radiofrequency microneedling benefits the patient by adding the additional element of radiofrequency energy to the traditional microneedling procedure. During a radiofrequency microneedling procedure with our Fraxis Duo, the radiofrequency energy is delivered via small needles – with a process similar to that of traditional microneedling.
Radiofrequency microneedling provides the patient with all advantages of a traditional microneedling procedure with the added benefits of having radiofrequency energy being delivered deeper into the dermis, which further enhances the process of stimulating collagen and elastin production. Radiofrequency microneedling can be effectively used for skin tightening around the neck and to treat numerous concerns including active acne, large pores, various scars, skin laxity or “loose” skin, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), stretch marks, cellulite, and even vertical lines that some women develop on their chest. Due to the deeper level of penetration, radiofrequency microneedling with our revolutionary Fractional CO2 Laser is capable of producing faster and more dramatic results for the patient. Just as with traditional microneedling, optimal results can be obtained by combining radiofrequency microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Hyalauronic Acid (HA) injection fillers. PRP enhances results by allowing for deeper penetration and absorption of nutrients and growth factors while HA improves the skin's contour and fills in areas of the skin that are sunken in due to fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, or trauma.
