Radiofrequency Microneedling: the Latest in Skin Tightening

There is a relatively new technique that dermatologists are using to tighten your skin. Its called RF microneedling, and Legacy Dermatology Group is proud to offer this groundbreaking treatment!

RF stands for radio-frequency. RF microneedling affects the skin in two ways. You get the physical injury from the microneedling device, along with the simultaneous radiofrequency which adds a heat effect in the dermis (the deep layer of your skin where collagen is formed and rests). This forces your skin to create an abundance of collagen for many months after your treatment. That’s one reason why you see such amazing results.

On top of tightening your skin, this treatment helps with acne, scars, stretch marks, axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in your underarms), and even the vertical lines some women develop on their chest.

The best part? There is very minimal downtime! The treated areas may experience redness that may last for about 48 hours, but that’s it! Stacked treatments about a month apart will lead to a gradual tightening and rejuvenation effect. You can get this treatment and get back to you routines without missing a beat. Now that’s lifestyle dermatology!
