RF Microneedling with the Lumenis Legend Pro
The Most Medically Advanced Microneedling Treatment
The Legend Pro is a patented device that simultaneously uses radio frequency and microneedling. As the micro-needles penetrate the dermis, the radio frequency penetrates into the sub-dermal layers, encouraging the generation of new and healthy skin.
RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. In medical terminology, it is also referred to as collagen induction therapy and percutaneous collagen induction.
These tiny wounds stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastin within the dermis, the deep part of the skin, as well as in new capillaries for improved blood supply through the process of neo-vascularization and neo-collagenesis.
The creation of the micro-wounds also allows topical products to penetrate deeper into the skin than they normally would, greatly increasing the skin’s ability to utilize the nutrients.
This procedure is also suited to regions where laser treatments and deep peels are not typically performed. RF Microneedling can be performed on all skin colors and types, and there is minimal downtime. The treatment can be easily personalized by going deeper on some areas where skin damage requires a more aggressive approach. You may experience some redness and swelling. This may last a couple of hours and up to a few days. In the following days, you may see and feel minor scabbing that will naturally heal and shed off.
RF Microneedling provides improvement for:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Skin texture
- Reduction in acne scars
- Reduction in pore size
- Reduction in stretch marks
RF Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains growth factors, FGF and PDGF, which can aid in the repair process of tissue and skin. These growth factors promote cell growth, tissue repair and the production of new collagen. RF Microneedling delivers them deeper into the skin, giving them better absorption.
PRP therapy is performed by collecting blood from the patient and spinning it in a centrifuge for 15 minutes to separate platelets from blood. The separated blood, now platelet-rich plasma, is drawn out and massaged into skin after RF Microneedling.
