About RF Microneedling
Port St. Lucie, FL plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee utilizes an exceptional technique that creates beautiful results for our patients using a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF microneedling treatments have existed for many years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for skin tightening. This particular sort of therapy utilizes heat, radiofrequency, and a microneedling device to promote the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. At Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, we frequently incorporate this new advancement into our Port St. Lucie, FL patients' skin treatments to generate firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion. Our facility incorporates Legend Pro™ with Tripollar® technology to perform this innovative procedure.
"Absolutely the most kind, caring and patient staff and Dr Lee is amazing. He is so good at what he does. I've had a few procedures done both in office and at surgery center. I'd recommend Dr Lee to anyone who is looking for a board certified plastic surgeon. I'm so thankful to have chosen them!"- A. / Healthgrades / Feb 09, 2019
"My 4th surgery with Dr. Lee was Monday, 1/13/2020. for a Brachioplasty (upper arm surgery to remove loose skin). My procedure was performed at Bluewater Surgery Center in Port Saint Lucie. Dr. Lee and Dana in the OR are amazing as well as the entire staff at Blue Water Surgery Center. Dr. Lee & his entire staff at Lee Plastic Surgery & Lasar Center are outstanding in every way and always go above & beyond to please their patients. I couldn’t be happier with the results of every surgery I have had. Dr. Lee has done my tummy tuck, neck lift, & the removal of excess skin on my legs. I used to be 250 lbs 17 years ago. I had gastric bypass surgery 1/20/2003 and have been successful with losing the weight but needed the surgeries to make me feel even better about myself. I am on the top of the world at this point in my life. I am a very healthy 62 year woman, I eat healthy, & exercise 5 days per week. I must also mention Dr. Lee’s beautiful wife, Tricia, is a genuinely true professional in the skin care field. I see Tricia regularly for all my skin care needs. Dr. Lee excels in every field of plastic surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results of every surgery he has performed on me. Dr. Lee & Staff: “Thank you so much for the difference you have made in my life. Your kindness, sincere caring, and concern make everything better and are a great encouragement.” “Thank you so very much for taking care of me and being so skilled at what you do. Every day of my life will be better because of you. From the bottom of my heart.... Thank you Patricia Ann Cara Donna"- P.A. / Google / Jan 18, 2020
"Best out there, anywhere! If you live closer to Dr. Lee you are VERY fortunate. You will be in the best hands with Dr. Lee and all his staff. I moved to Florida 10 years ago from Califonia and struggled to find just the right fit for me. Some dermatologist offices in the area (which shall remain nameless) were charging 3x the amount! The "shopping mall" skin center had their "plan" and wouldn't listen to my concerns or work within my budget. I was lucky to find Dr. Lee."- M. / Healthgrades / Jan 06, 2020
"Dr Lee Did a Fantastic job closing me up when I had the Flesh eating bacteria. In 2006. He is great no BETTER."- J.S. / Google / Oct 04, 2019
"I recently underwent reconstruction after breast surgery for cancer. Dr. Lee was extremely professional, assistive and compassionate in all phases of my treatment. His staff was always friendly and worked with my schedule and insurance with utmost competence. I recommend Dr. Lee and his practice to anyone considering plastic surgery without hesitation."- D.P. / Google / Nov 16, 2019
If you're beginning to experience age spots, discoloration, smile lines, and other skin irregularities (which include age and sun exposure), RF microneedling may be the perfect treatment for you. RF microneedling may be a great choice if you want to:
- Firm your skin
- Reduce acne scars
- Boost skin texture, tone, and/or pigment
- Minimize the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Improve skin discoloration and/or reduce the appearance of blood vessels
- Rejuvenate the skin for a softer, rested appearance
RF microneedling uses a handpiece that is carefully passed across the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "interrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some also refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New skin grows as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and rejuvenated. This approach is quite simple. The Tripollar applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by providing short bursts of RF energy via a collection of ultra-thin electrodes. The power is delivered through the electrodes, which concurrently punctures the skin and returns the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that provide cumulative and continuing results.
What to Expect
Your microneedling treatment will be performed in the Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center office employing a numbing solution to decrease discomfort. During your procedure, the handheld device will glide over the desired area, repeating the technique until the desired results have been reached. Outcomes become visible as the skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks following a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results generally call for 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
