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.
"All I can say is WOW-Dr. Lawrence is my HERO! I am 44 years old and I am 7 days post op from a lower face and neck lift. I look amazing! My neck and jowls have bothered me since my 20s. I am so glad that I trusted Dr. Lawrence with my procedure. She is a rockstar surgeon. I had very little swelling and almost no bruising. My incisions are well hidden and I look incredible. I haven’t smiled like this in a long time. My husband and I looked at my pre-op photos today compared to the new me and he said... "Wow- you looked so unhappy in these and now you have a different glow to you!" From the consult to the surgery, Dr. Lawrence and her staff have gone above and beyond for me. They are so kind and have the best bedside manner. I had a mild freak out after surgery with the head wrap and Dr. Lawrence was happy to redo it for me (several times) until I felt comfortable. She totally put me at ease. Thank you Dr. Lawrence, Maryann, Aubrey and the entire staff. You have made me feel like myself again. I can’t thank you enough!"- M.B. / Yelp / Nov 02, 2023
"Everyone was very kind and helpful. It is a very pleasant office atmosphere."- D.E. / Yelp / May 05, 2023
"I’ve had several procedures at this office, and I’ve been very happy at the outcomes for all of them, One of the procedures was the PDO facelift. I had sagging jowls and a small chin that made them look even worse. I am scared of surgery, so I thought I’d look into the PDO. I didn’t look normal for about 3 weeks, which, for some reason, I wasn’t expecting. One side of my face was swollen and the other wasn’t - I thought maybe they’d messed up. I will say that Dr. Lawrence was very supportive, even offering to do the procedure again or something else to fix it if it remained a problem. The swelling finally went down, but then I didn’t see very much difference for the next several months. However, it’s now been a year, and the collagen production has kicked in. I now look 10 years younger than my age, did not pay a fortune, and did not have to take the risk that comes with any surgery.I see that the person I had for this (Angela) is no longer at the office,, but I wanted to explain my experience for people who might be considering this procedure. I am going to do it again in a few years."- S.H. / Yelp / Apr 14, 2023

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.
