About Microneedling with RF
Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, GA uses an exceptional approach that creates outstanding results for our patients with a treatment known as Intensif microneedling with radiofrequency (RF). Intensif microneedling with RF treatments has been around for many years and is well-known in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This particular type of RF treatment uses heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. At our facility, we often add this new advancement to our patients' skin care treatments to create firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion. Our practice was founded and is led by double board -certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence, one of the most experienced female plastic surgeons in Atlanta. Call us today to learn more about our treatments.
"Dr.Marisa remembered me from 6 yrs ago when I went for consultation and she and her team with Dr.Angela and Erin put their best foot forward to meet my expectations. The Northside hospital never fails to exceed its exceptional hospitality that makes you forget your pain and fears ... yes they give "good stuff" that works making it agony free during and after procedure. From lab work, covid test, preop preparation (my nurses were the D team 😀) Comfort and care means alot. I had seen 2 other doctors for consultation in different states but you always stood out May God bless the works of your hands and entire team."- W.K. / Facebook / Jan 24, 2021

I have given Dr. Lawrence two new names so far🤣 miracle worker because when I tell you I don't know how she transformed my body the way she did. The second name is 🔥 (fire) cause she has me Hott.

"So Relieved! - After having breast implants for 11 years that were way too large for me I wanted them out! Dr. Laurence was great with answering all of my questions about explanting and full capsulectomy. I told her I wanted to breastfeed in the future so I didn't want a lift. She agreed that explant and capsulectomy were my best course of action and also that I had plenty of my own breast tissue so I shouldn't worry about my size.At two weeks post op, she was definitely right! I honestly had no idea what I would look like without implants, but I absolutely love my natural size. The reason I got them originally was to make them more even and symmetrical. But even putting in two different sized implants, they still weren't totally the same. I've learned now that is totally okay! I love my two different boobs.Marisa Lawrence and the rest of her staff were all amazing. Everyone in the office was super kind and welcoming. I will totally recommend Dr. Lawrence to people I know."- A. / RealSelf / Dec 17, 2020
"I have been seeing Dr. Lawrence for different issues -- some cosmetic and some not. I have always been treated with empathy and caring. I cannot say enough good things about her staff, as they are attentive to your needs and wellness. Dr. Lawrence is a true artist in her field. I highly recommend Dr. Lawrence."- M.G. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2020
"Dr. Lawrence did my first breast cancer reconstruction 18 years ago and the results were amazing. Fast forward to a second breast cancer diagnosis and mastectomy. Due to insurance, I saw a former colleague of hers and I am so disappointed with the results. Dr. Lawrence is the best!"- M.K. / Yelp / Nov 10, 2020
If you are 40 years of age or older and are starting to notice discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin problems (that can come with age and sun exposure), microneedling with radiofrequency might be the perfect treatment for you. Intensif microneedling with RF is a wonderful choice if you wish to:
- Tighten the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Enhance skin texture, tone, and pigment
- Address skin irregularities, such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Reduce the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Treat acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look
Intensif microneedling with RF treatments use an advanced handpiece (with small needles on the end) that is passed over the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some also refer to this as collagen induction therapy. New skin grows as the skin heals, leaving the top layer feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated.
The approach is quite straightforward. The handheld Intensif device, which emits radiofrequency heat, works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through an array of 25 sterilized, gold-plated micro-needles. The energy is transmitted through the needles, which simultaneously punctures the skin and circles back the electrodes on the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits.
What to Expect
Your Intensif microneedling with RF procedure will take place inside one of the Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery procedure rooms utilizing a numbing cream to minimize discomfort. During your appointment, the Intensif handheld device will be passed over the desired area, stamping the skin and repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. Patients should expect slight redness for around 24 – 72 hours post-procedure, which will naturally subside when the underlying micro-injuries have healed. Results become visible as skin improves over the 3 – 4 weeks after your microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results usually need 3 – 4 treatments scheduled 3 – 4 weeks apart.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microneedling with radiofrequency cost?

How many treatments will I need?
As every patient is unique and has their own aesthetic goals, some individuals will require more treatments than others. Dr. Lawrence and our team will perform an examination and create a tailored treatment plan that will help you understand what number of sessions you will need. Most patients receive 3 – 4 treatments spaced one month apart.
What are the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency?
Microneedling with radiofrequency offers stunning results with less downtime than other more invasive or surgical procedures. The procedure is a great option if you want to refresh the overall appearance of your skin. Our patients regularly comment that they feel their skin is rejuvenated and more youthful after this treatment.
Does it hurt?
