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.

"I was referred to Dr. Lee by my dermatologist after a surgery for skin cancer on my nose. Could not be happier with the outcome of the reconstructive surgery. I went in with a dime sized hole on the bridge of my nose. I came out 3 weeks later with virtually no scars and barely of trace of the surgery. Everything from the scheduling, consultation, surgery and efficiency of the office staff made the entire experience spectacular."- K.A. / Healthgrades / Mar 29, 2020

RF Microneedling Ideal Candidates
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 Procedure Technique
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 with RF Microneedling
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.
