You may have read or heard about all the buzz about Microneedling. There are so many different devices and methods on the market now. We are here to help you understand it better.
Microneedling with radiofrequency effectively treats a variety of skin aging signs and other defects both on and off the face with minimal risk and downtime compared to alternative options. This treatment is a great option for skin tightening and resurfacing to treat wrinkles, lip lines, acne scars, other depressed scars and stretch marks and it can be used regardless of skin photo type. Microneedling offers the best bang for your buck by helping to repair and treat so many different problems or concerns during one treatment. It is also a safe treatment recommended for most patients, including patients with darker skin types.
Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence and her experienced team at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery take great pride in helping Atlanta-area patients enhance their look and achieve their aesthetic goals using surgical and non-surgical treatments. One of the most in-demand non-surgical procedures is the microneedling with radiofrequency treatments.
It is very important that you go to an experienced and well-trained provider for this treatment. Not all microneedling devices are the same and an experienced provider knows the proper method to treat the patient for the safest and most optimal results. Our medical microneeedling with radiofrequency treatment has good depth control and delivers energy directly into the target area without loss of energy. It can be used with greater safety to treat problems that would otherwise require an aggressive laser or peel resurfacing procedure. However, achieving optimal outcomes can require multiple sessions; typically, patients will need three or four sessions to achieve the best results. Microneedling with radiofrequency can be combined with other treatments, including platelet-rich plasma injections and chemical peels.
With mild treatments, patients generally experience no postoperative pain and little to no social downtime. Treatments performed using more aggressive parameters may experience mild to moderate postoperative pain and minimal downtime.
A topical anesthetic is used to improve patient comfort during the procedure. To minimize complications, patients should be advised to avoid using any anti-inflammatory treatments for two weeks prior to the procedure and retinoids for three days.
Microneedling with radiofrequency and PRP is one of Dr. Lawrence’s favorite treatments and she highly recommends this treatment to most of her patients. To schedule your microneedling treatment, call our office at 404-303-7004.
