Frequently Ask Questions

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Q-Switched laser treatment costs from $250 to $450 per treatment.

IS THERE DOWNTIME?
Minimal downtime is required.

WHAT SHOULD I DO PRIOR TO TREATMENT?
Avid sun exposure and tanning before treatment. In addition, the use of aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, and St. John’s Wort should be avoided for a week before treatment.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO CLEAR SUNSPOTS?

Most sunspots can be removed within two treatments, spaced four to eight weeks apart. Some deeper lesions will require more treatments.

WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY ARE TREATED WITH THESE TECHNOLOGIES?
Q- Switched lasers can treat pigmented lesions on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
The sensation during the treatment has been compared to a snap of a thin rubber band. Most patients don’t require any topical anesthesia, though it can be used if requested.

After the treatment, the area will feel similar to light sunburn and the pigmented lesions will get darker and sometimes red. If one specific wavelength (532 nm) is required to remove a lesion, temporary bruising in the treatment area may be noted. The lesions may bleed slightly, crust, and flake off as well. After this clears, the skin returns to its natural color and texture. Sun exposure needs to be avoided after the treatment.

WHAT DOWNTIME OR RECOVERY SHOULD I EXPECT WITH RF MICRONEEDLING?
Most people feel comfortable to return to normal social activities no more than 24-48 hours post-treatment and makeup can be following day after treatment.

Fractional RadioFrequency works to minimize your downtime and maximize the speed at which you achieve results in two ways:

Fractionated Energy: “fractional” energy treatments deliver energy to a portion of the skin. The percentage of skin treated during Fractional Radio Frequency MicroNeedling can be adjusted during each treatment. Treating the entire skin at once would lead to a very long recovery with high risk for infection and complication (think intense chemical peels and fully ablative laser therapy). Treating a portion of the skin means the skin is able to recover quicker and keep risks and complications at a minimum. Using a series of treatments, Fractional Radio Frequency treats each cell at least once during the series. This way you can achieve the same effectiveness as an invasive treatment, with fewer risks and a shorter downtime.

Minimized Damage to the skin surface: Unlike laser skin resurfacing, Fractional Radio Frequency is able to deliver the energy where its needed most, in the lower dermis, while minimizing the damage to the skin’s surface. This means you will experience the absolute minimum in visible downtime, without sacrificing results.

Fractional RadioFrequency does have the potential to create bleeding, due to the microneedles. We have seen this vary from patient-to-patient. Typically bleeding is minimal and resolves immediately without any additional side effects or required action. Most patients elect to take the evening off from social activities. You should feel comfortable to return to normal social activities no later than 48 hours post-treatment, without the risk of anyone knowing you’ve had a procedure.

Before and Afters




DOES RF MICRONEEDLING HURT?

Treatments with Infini and Intensif are tolerated quite well. To ensure your treatment is comfortable, we utilize a topical numbing cream (lidocaine), and can offer additional numbing with injection, if desired.

WHEN WILL I START TO SEE RESULTS FROM A RF MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?

Fractional RadioFrequency works by causing your skin to rebuild old and damaged cells, thus the results are not immediate and depend upon the speed at which your body responds. typically, improvements are noticed 6-8 weeks after a session. Each patient typically wants to have 3 or more sessions to see significant results. However, the number of sessions recommended for your acne scars will be included in your customized treatment plan, provided during your consultation.

Before and Afters




IS RF MICRONEEDLING SAFE? CAN RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING BE DANGEROUS?

RF MicroNeedling is very safe. Because the energy spares the most superficial layer of the skin, most of the risks of side effects seen with aggressive lasers or deep chemical peels can be minimized or completely avoided. The two devices we use most often are the Intensif made by Endymed 3Deep and the INFINI made by Lutronic. Both have been FDA cleared for their safety and effectiveness. Infini is unique in that it insulates the tiny microneedles. This is an added safety measure to protect the very top layer of the skin, which is the area most prone to damage with laser treatments, especially in patients with darker skin. (epidemis not treated)

IS RF MICRONEEDLING SAFE FOR MY SKIN TONE OR TYPE?

The range of treatment settings in these two devices allow our physicians to create treatments which are safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones and skin which is prone to hyperpigmentation. This makes RF MicroNeedling a better alternative than laser skin resurfacing for the majority of patients with dark skin or skin which is prone to scarring or pigmentation. This also means those with lighter skin tones no longer have to post-pone laser therapies during the summer – Fractional RadioFrequency doesn’t have to wait for your tan to fade.

Before and Afters




HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED? HOW FAR APART ARE TREATMENTS SPACED?

Generally, patients require 3-4 treatment sessions that are spaced one month apart in order to give the skin time to fully rejuvenate and rebuild its foundational matrix, restoring the skin’s texture and strength. Your initial recovery period should last no longer than 48 hours, but it’s important to allow your skin to naturally and sufficiently rebuild itself before your next treatment session. This treatment plan allows us time to measure your skin’s progress and determine whether further treatments are needed (or whether you might benefit from other treatment options in the meantime). We recommend you undergo at least 3 treatment sessions in order to see significant changes and improvements in the skin’s smoothness and texture, but this can vary based on your aesthetic goals and prior treatments. RF MicroNeedling can be a final step in an acne scar treatment process, however, which might also require other treatments prior to this procedure in order to elevate deep scars and achieve the best results for your skin. We offer a wide array of laser- and technology-based treatments for your unique skin concerns, so our experts can help you create the best treatment plan for you and your schedule during your skincare consultation.

WILL I NEED TO GO UNDER GENERAL ANESTHESIA?

No, general anesthesia is overkill for this procedure.

Typically, patients are either given a strong topical numbing cream or they are injected with lidocaine to numb the area that will be treated. Most patients do report some discomfort, but say the treatment is tolerable. In the case that you find you are experiencing discomfort, we do offer nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as laughing gas), for a pain and anxiety-free experience. None of these options in any way inhibit your ability to drive yourself home from the procedure.

In general, we try to steer clear of general anesthesia because of its negative side effects and potential risks. While it does serve a great purpose in emergency medicine and general surgery, the risks are too high for something such as RF Microneedling.
