Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics offers a unique radio frequency (RF) and microneedling procedure bundled in one.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that significantly improves the skin’s overall appearance and treats minor facial flaws. Radiofrequency tightens skin and reduces wrinkle. Bundling these two treatment types into one amazing procedure results in an increase in benefits compared to either traditional microneedling or radiofrequency treatments alone.
Microneedling is a treatment used for facial rejuvenation. It involves the use of a medical grade micro-needling device to stimulate new collagen formation.
Our superior radiofrequency (RF) microneedling system allows for treatments to be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body, and unlike other laser options, can be done any time of year.
If you are unsure whether microneedling is the best treatment for your skin concern, don’t hesitate to book a complimentary consultation with one of Lethbridge Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics skin experts to discuss your options.
Common Concerns Addressed by Microneedling Include:
