IntraCel & Morpheus8 MicroNeedle Radio Frequency Treatment
MicroNeedle RF is one of our signature skin rejuvenation treatments developed by Dr. Greg Chernoff and is offered exclusively at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, CA. The treatment uses Fractional Radio Frequency (RF) delivered into the skin using insulated MicroNeedles. Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery offers two types of MicroNeedle Radio Frequency: 1) Morpheus8 and 2) IntraCel.
The treatments are performed alone or growth factor treatments like PRP and others can be applied topically during and after the treatment to enhance results.
What Is MicroNeedle RF Used To Treat?
MicroNeedle RF is helpful in improving a variety of skin conditions such as improvements in scars, fine lines, wrinkles, various skin irregularities, and large pores, and the reduction of stretch marks. This in-office treatment can be used on patients with all skin tones and levels of skin pigment.
Additional MicroNeedle RF benefits include:
- Prevents sagging brows and improves overall forehead skin elasticity
- Strengthens collagen fibers under and around the eyes to tighten skin, preventing hollowing out under the eyes and crepey skin
- Helps cheeks maintain their volume and prevents horizontal and vertical lines
- Prevents and helps soften jowls and sagging along the jawline
- Tightens neck skin and softens wrinkles
How Does MicroNeedle RF Therapy Work?
MicroNeedle RF specifically targets skin and underlying tissue without causing extensive damage to the epidermis. RF energy is injected below the epidermis. This stimulates fibroblasts and produces new collagen and elastin fibers. RF delivers energy to the deep dermis and sub-dermal skin layers. This deep heating causes the collagen to build and strengthen without damaging the outer layers of the skin.
The improvement is gradual and continues over the months following treatment. Adding topical growth factors such as Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) and other skin-improving growth factors can enhance the results by improving skin tone by building and strengthening collagen fibers and improving skin elasticity.
