This is one of our favorite treatments for treating a variety of skin concerns. Not only can micr needling improve the look and feel of your skin, but it can also work wonders in reducing acne scars, lines, and wrinkles. Microneedling with RF combines two of our favorite modalities (microneedling and RF) into one to provide better results than you can get from either alone. We recommend starting with a package of 3 treatments 2 weeks apart and then a maintenance treatment every six months thereafter. Safe for all skin types.
