If you want to give your skin a complete overhaul, one of the options we offer at Timeless Laser & Skin Care is a Tight & Bright Total Skin Solution.
This option combines the collagen-boosting powers of RF microneedling with the Lutronic laser, helping to diminish skin concerns. Learn more about these procedures and how they combine to offer quality results.
RF Microneedling: How It Works
When you leave your 20s behind, your body’s production of two crucial proteins decreases. These proteins are elastin and collagen, and they are responsible for keeping your skin tight, hydrated, and healthy.
When the production of these proteins diminishes, your skin begins to lose its flexibility, and that is when sagging skin and wrinkles can start to form.
Radiofrequency microneedling helps jump-start the production of those proteins. It incorporates the techniques of traditional microneedling, which involves creating small wounds with tiny needles. It also adds RF energy, which heats the layers of your skin, causing more damage that prompts your body to create new skin.
At our clinic, we use the Lutronic Genius device to perform the RF microneedling procedure. This device uses gold-tipped needles to deliver the RF energy into the microchannels or wounds, offering real-time temperature adjustments to ensure skin layers receive the exact heat they need to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Radiofrequency microneedling can be an excellent acne scar treatment while also offering the skin tightening results you want.
Lutronic LaseMD Ultra: How It Works
The second part of our Tight & Bright Total Skin Solution relies on the Lutronic LaseMD Ultra treatment. This is a skin resurfacing option that uses a non-ablative laser, which can reach deep into your skin layers without harming the epidermis, or top skin layer.
By penetrating into deeper layers, the Lutronic LaseMD Ultra can help with scars and pigmentation issues.
Not only does the heat created by the laser help with scars and pigmentation, but it also stimulates collagen production. We offer different laser intensity levels to treat a variety of skin concerns.
This laser treatment focuses on refreshing your skin, giving it the glow you want. As the years pass, skin can get dull because of pigmentation issues. The Lutronic LaseMD Ultra targets pigment molecules so that you can have a more even and beautiful skin tone.
Refine: Wrinkle Treatment
When we use the Refine laser option, it can help with wrinkle reduction. We stimulate collagen production to help smooth out your skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Resmooth: Acne Scar Treatment
Our laser can penetrate into the deepest skin layers to help diminish acne scars. The laser dissolves scar tissue while also stimulating your body to create healthy tissue.
Renew: Melasma Treatment
If you have pigmentation concerns, this can be the right treatment option. It is the highest-intensity laser option we offer, and it can destroy unwanted pigment. We also offer serums with this treatment to help even out your complexion.
Benefits of Tight & Bright Total Skin Solution
When we combine RF microneedling with laser therapies, we can offer treatments that can tackle even the most complex of skin conditions. We can help dissolve scar tissue with the laser, for example, while boosting collagen with microneedling so that new and healthy skin can grow and replace the scar tissue.
The combination of these treatments allows us to treat people with all kinds of skin types, as well, making it easier for us to customize treatments to offer the best results.
These procedures are minimally-invasive, allowing you to enjoy the results without worrying about long recovery times. You can get back to your regular activities almost immediately.
Preparing for RF Microneedling and Lutronic LaseMD Ultra
If you want to combine these treatments, we ask that you schedule an appointment with us so that we can see if it is the best option to provide the solutions you want. We will ask for your full medical history and a list of the medication and supplements you take.
Before the procedure, we recommend you stop taking blood thinners, including:
- Fish oil
- Ginkgo biloba
- Vitamin E
- St. John’s Wort
You also need to avoid anything that can make your skin more sensitive, including chemical peels, abrasive products or products with salicylic acid, and sun tanning. A few days before the procedure, we recommend you stop drinking alcohol.
What to Expect from the Procedure
Come to the appointment on time and without makeup or lotions. We will clean your face and apply a topical anesthetic so we can begin.
The procedure length can vary depending on the areas we treat and the conditions you want help with. Once we finish, you are free to return to your day.
Because your skin needs to heal, you need to stay out of the sun for a few days. Use only mild facial cleansers and make sure to use any serums or creams we give you as directed.
Give Your Skin the Boost It Needs
When you choose the Tight & Bright Total Skin Solution procedure, you can get all of the benefits of RF microneedling as well as laser therapies at the same time. Whether you worry about acne scars or melasma, this procedure can help.
