Say goodbye to those wrinkles in your neck! If you've ever looked in the mirror and pulled back your skin to tighten it and witness the appearance if you had a bit of a life, but you're not quite ready to go under the knife, then Radiofrequency could be the solution for you. RF is a non-invasive, painless beauty treatment that can be used to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines in your neck, in addition to combating saginess and loose skin.
RF energy heats the skin to high temperatures in a controlled fashion in the area of the skin called the dermis. This then promotes the stimulus of collagen production, which can reduce wrinkles, while also causing skin tightening. With RF, you can contour the neck, chin, and jowls with no downtime and no bruising. Give us a call if you have any question or wish to schedule a consultation.

Relieve Acne Scars with Microneedling Radiofrequency
Dealing with active acne and acne scars is a problem that so many of us face. To make matters worse, acne scars are one of the more difficult disorders to treat in aesthetic dermatology. As such, both patients and doctors are searching for the safest and more effective methods to solve acne problems.
Acne scars generally vary between different subtypes according to the severity of inflammation and the deepness of the scars. Two of the more common types of scars are ice-pick scars and boxcar scars, with boxcar scars being further subdivided into superficial and deep boxcar scars. Ice-pick scars appear as small, sharp margins that penetrate deep into the skin. Boxcar scars, on the other hand, have a broad, porous appearance. Beyond simply textural issues with acne scarring, many people suffer from redness and hyperpigmentation. This can leave devastatingly noticeable blemishes on the skin.
Standard treatment for acne scarring usually consists of either full-face CO2 treatment or laser resurfacing, with the former tending to show greater results. These procedures, however, tend to carry a significant risk of dyspigmentation, infection, further scarring, and extensive recovery time. Even more so, they present risks for patients with darker skin types because they pose a great risk of post-inflammatory hypopigmentation (PIH).
Fortunately, recent studies have illustrated that Microneedle Radiofrequency (MRF) techniques can bypass many of these issues and safely treat both active acne and acne scarring. One of the greatest advantages of MRF is that it can safely be applied to patients of all skin types. This is because MRF works by applying a very specific temperature of heat directly to the dermis (the dermis is the area beneath the outer layer of the skin that contains living tissue and proteins that make up the structure of the skin) through a number of very small microneedles. This then creates microthermal zones (MTZs) that only apply the radiofrequency energy in the specific areas of the skin desired, while other areas remain untouched.
Side-by-side comparison studies of CO2 and MRF techniques have illustrated that MRF resulted in the same degree of clarity from acne scarring as did CO2. However, the patients who received the MRF techniques reported that there was very little pain, and needed 5x less recovery time than the patients who received the full-face CO2 treatment. Additionally, none of the patients who received the MRF treatment suffered from PIH, while some patients under the CO2 treatment noticed PIH after about 3 weeks.
In sum, Microneedle Radiofrequency is a treatment option for active acne and acne scarring that has been reported successful and associated with a high degree of efficiency and safety. Patient results can be seen in the ‘Photo Gallery’ section under “B&A MRF Acne Scarring.” Give us a call if you any questions or would like to schedule a consultation.

Lax skin and wrinkles are generally due to the reduction of collagen fibers in the dermal layer of the skin. Collagen fibers are the proteins that support the structure of the skin. When the dermal layer is heated, collagen synthesis is stimulated. This leads to the appearance of facial remodeling with tighter, more youthful-looking skin due to the reduction of wrinkles and sagginess. Radiofrequency (RF) energy easily targets particular areas of the skin in order to trigger the production of new collagen where it is needed most.
There are several different methods of applying RF energy to the dermis. Initially, RF-based devices used either monopolar or bipolar electrodes, with these treatments being termed as ‘monopolar RF’ and ‘bipolar RF,’ respectively. Think of these “electrodes” as very small, fine wires that electrical currents can flow through. Essentially, bipolar RF uses two electrodes to deliver RF energy between them, while monopolar RF uses a single electrode. Bipolar RF shows limited results because of the limited flow of RF energy between the two electrodes. Monopolar RF has been associated with painful procedures because of the uncontrolled flow of RF beyond the target location from the single electrode.
As a consumer in beauty, it’s easy to generalize cosmetic treatments based upon specific keywords. To provide an example, when people think of using RF treatments to help improve wrinkles and lax skin, they may associate these treatments with a great deal of pain and local safety concerns like bruising and hyperpigmentation. However, recent technological advancements in RF treatments have minimized these risks while almost completely absolving the issue of pain.
EndyMed has developed 3Deep technology by using multi-source, multiphase-controlled RF energy which delivers the energy more efficiently within the dermal layer in a nearly painless manner. Studies have indicated that after RF treatments, the collagen fibers in the skin appeared both more fine and dense, resembling the structure of youthful skin collagen fibers. 3DEEP RF treatments provide a significant reduction in wrinkles and excellent facial tightening.

EndyMed Pro radiofrequency(RF)-microneedling is one of the most innovative solutions for non-surgical lifting and skin tightening for loose skin around the eyes, face, and neck. Check out the video below to learn more about how it works:
The EndyMed RF-microneedling is the first FDA cleared, non-insulated motorized microneedle RF technology in the market. The Intensif's non-insulated gold needles, together with EndyMed proprietary Fractional Pulse Model technology, generates more heat safely into the dermis for better collagen and reticular fiber production and remodeling. This, then, leads to better skin tightening and overall rejuvenation. The mechanism involves a stimulation of neocollageneis via needle penetration, emitting the RF energy into the deep dermis and the release of growth factors. Unlike many other rejuvenating procedures, the improvement is permanent. The EndyMed pro comes with four different sizes and shape of handpieces plus the Intensif for RF microneedling can be used safely around the eyes and face for wrinkles, scars, and spots. It is also an excellent procedure for skin laxity of the neck.
