What is RF microneedling?
Beverly Hills, CA board-certified internist Dr. Dale Prokupek utilizes a unique technique that creates beautiful outcomes for our patients with a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. We use the Morpheus8™ by InMode at Aesthetic Body Solutions for rejuvenating the skin with aesthetic issues, like poor texture, acne scars, and stretch marks. RF microneedling is frequently incorporated into our patients' skin treatments to generate healthier skin and a glowing complexion. The Morpheus8 uses a matrix of microneedles (or micropins) to renew your skin within the deeper layers without damaging your surface skin. The heat emitted from the Morpheus8 device is controlled and effective at stimulating your collagen production. Your skin will be more radiant and youthful as the new collagen revitalizes your skin over time. Come in for a consultation to learn more about RF microneedling and what services we can provide you for a refreshing experience for your skin.
"My friend referred me to Dr. Dale for my acne scars and wrinkles. I was greeted by friendly staff and Dr. Dale was such a nice guy! I asked if he recommends a face lift for my wrinkles but he advised against it. He took his time to explain my options and get me the best deal. I also felt comfortable going to a doctor vs a med spa as my safety was his main concern. He recommended the Morpheus8 by INMODE. It helped clear my face and also gave my face a lift! It has no downtime and cost half the price of alternatives with no anesthesia. Overall had a great experience, even my mom has booked an appointment!"- E.M. / Google / Aug 28, 2020
If you are beginning to find discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin irregularities (that include age and sun exposure), RF microneedling could be the right treatment for you. RF microneedling is an excellent option if you wish to:
- Firm the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Improve skin texture, pigment, and tone
- Heal skin imperfections, like discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Improve acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more glowing look
Our RF Microneedling Technique
RF microneedling with the Morpheus8 will be performed in our office. Once your skin is prepared and numbed for the treatment, the Morpheus8 device is carefully positioned at the treatment area to hit the layers of your skin and make micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this as collagen induction treatment. New skin cells begin to grow as the skin heals, leaving the top layer looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and rejuvenated. This advanced method of RF microneedling has allowed us to optimize the results for our Beverly Hills, CA patients. Repeat and consistent RF microneedling sessions will deliver better results.
After RF Microneedling
You can expect your skin to form some miniature scabs in the first 24 – 72 hours post-treatment, which will naturally shed when the underlying skin has healed. Your skin will have more visible results in about a month after having an RF microneedling treatment. You may need 3 – 4 treatments one month apart to really see a dramatic transformation in the health of your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does RF microneedling cost?
The cost of your RF microneedling procedure will vary, depending on your condition and how many sessions scheduled to deliver your best results. In your initial consultation, we will go over your questions and estimate your treatment costs.
How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Every person is different, and some individuals may require more procedures than other people. We will take the time to perform a complete assessment of your complexion and consider your needs and wants to help determine the appropriate number of sessions for you. Usually, many people get 3 – 4 sessions spaced about a month apart.
What are the benefits of RF microneedling?
RF microneedling is effective and safe for most people, and it may be performed on almost any area of the face and body. RF microneedling offers amazing improvements and very little time needed for recovery.
Does RF microneedling hurt?
After a topical anesthetic is put on the treatment area, most patients experience little to no pain during the procedure. Throughout RF microneedling, our team will ask to make sure you're comfortable. Once the numbing wears off, you might feel a little discomfort for a short time as your skin heals.
