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.

"I Love my Body Again! - I came to Dr. Lawrence after many months of searching for the right surgeon. I am a gastric bypass patient and had a lot of skin that I wanted removed. Dr. Lawrence made me feel comfortable, and answered all of my questions with expertise. Now, three surgeries later, I am in love with my body again. My tummy tuck is perfect and I love my flat tummy. She did an amazing breast augmentation and my husband couldn't be happier. I love my body in a bikini! The final surgery was removing skin from my inner thighs, and while I did have an infection as a result of my own doing, Dr. Lawrence was amazing at treating me and making sure the scars were minimal. I love the mirror again, and I owe it all to Dr. Lawrence and her amazing staff. Thank you for helping me get my life back! Now I'm enjoying the facials and laser hair removal! Her office has it all!"- K. / RealSelf / Jan 06, 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?
The cost of your microneedling with radiofrequency treatment will be based on the condition of your skin and the number of sessions needed to achieve your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, Dr. Lawrence will go over all your questions and estimate the cost of your treatment. Our practice accepts a number of payment methods to make your sessions more affordable.
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?
Though the procedure is not considered painful, we apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area prior to the beginning. Because of this, most patients experience little to no discomfort at all. At your consultation, our team can help you to better understand what to expect during your session.
