RF Microneedling | Los Angeles
One of the hottest new technologies is available at Metropolis Dermatology. By combining the collagen-generating effects of microneedling with the tightening and ablative effects of radiofrequency waves, this is the best of both worlds. With minimal downtime, a maximum dual effect of improved tightening can be achieved using this method. When used properly, this technique is safe for all skin types. A series of treatments is necessary for the optimum effect.
Our RF microneedling technology can go to a depth of 3.5mm, reaching the deep dermis, where the collagen generation and tightening effects are greatest. Our state-of-the-art chiller system makes this a minimally painful experience. This treatment is quick and can be combined with other treatments, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP), to allow for deeper penetration of those ingredients.
Skin tightening is one of the most popular procedures in the United States. Through the use of various creams and minimally-invasive procedures, we can help induce the body’s own mechanisms to tighten the skin. The methods range from application of antioxidants on the skin to radiofrequency microneedling and lasers, such as fractionated CO2 laser and the Erbium:YAG laser. The effects usually do last a while, but requires maintenance over time as the skin continues to age gradually.
