What is RF Microneedling?
For patients in Peak, SC seeking enhancement to their facial skin, our skilled team utilizes a special approach that produces outstanding results using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are well known in the aesthetics industry for their skin tightening effects. This particular type of treatment uses heat to stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. This therapy can be combined with microneedling to optimize the results. At Peak Aesthetics, we frequently incorporate this new process into our patients' skin treatments by utilizing the Morpheus8™ to produce firmer skin, a much smoother feel, and a luminous complexion.
"Peak Aesthetics is a hidden gem! I was a bit nervous at my first appointment, but Dr. Pinner and Jessica took the time to go over exactly what they would do, how it would feel, and what results to expect, as well as answer all of my questions. It was such a pleasure spending time and getting great treatment that I have sent several people to Peak Aesthetics. Dr. Pinner and Jessica are so gentle kind and careful. I completely trust them with my skin!"- L.N. / Google / Jul 16, 2021

Both Dr. Ben Pinner and Jessica make the perfect team to provide you with the natural best of you without making it look "fake." I am that person who never thought I would use these services but now I will never not have this as part of my anti aging regimen. Thank you Dr. Ben and Jessica!

"I had a GREAT Service and I am already recommending people to Dr. Pinner and Jessica Sheheen for services with Peak Aesthetics. I had the CO2 Laser Treatment! My skin looks and feels much younger!"- P. / Healthgrades / Nov 26, 2020
"Dr. Ben Pinner at Peak Aesthetics did my Femilift laser treatments for urinary incontinence. When I started inquiring about having something done and researching different options, I was thrilled to learn that an actual physician would be performing the treatment. I had researched several other offices but the treatments were done by a nurse or tech, not the physician. At age 53, I had experienced urinary leaking for years since having children. After 3 treatments over the course of a few months, the incontinence has been completely resolved and I am so pleased with the results! I would recommend Dr. Pinner's services to anyone who is having difficulty with this."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Nov 24, 2020
Is RF Microneedling Right for Me?
If you are 40 years of age or older and are starting to find smile lines, age spots, discoloration, or other skin flaws, RF microneedling could be the right treatment for you. This treatment could be a great option for you if you wish to:
- Firm the skin, producing a more refreshed look
- Improve skin texture, pigment, and/or tone
- Address skin imperfections, such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Minimize the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Improve acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, luminous look
How is RF Microneedling performed?
Microneedling utilizes an instrument with tiny needles at the end that is rolled gently against the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "interrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some also refer to this as collagen induction therapy. New skin begins to grow as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer looking and feeling smoother, brighter, and refreshed. Although this process is often performed by itself, combining this advanced method with radiofrequency microneedling technology has enabled us to optimize the outcomes for our Peak, SC patients.
The process is quite straightforward. The handheld Morpheus8 device, which emits radiofrequency heat, works by delivering short pulses of RF energy via an array of 25 sterile, golden microneedles. The energy is delivered via the needles, which concurrently punctures the skin and returns the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that provide cumulative and continuing benefits.
What Results Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling treatment will take place inside our facility using a numbing solution to minimize discomfort. During your appointment, the handpiece will glide over the desired treatment areas, repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. Patients should anticipate tiny, pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours after the session, which will naturally disappear when the underlying micro-injury has healed. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin heals over a month after having a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results generally require 3 – 4 treatments 3 – 4 weeks apart.
If you are seeking to minimize the look of sun-damaged or aging skin, as well as diminish wrinkles, laxity, or acne scars, RF microneedling is a great treatment with proven results. Combining radiofrequency microneedling and skin tightening, this outstanding skin rejuvenation process has increased in popularity and continues to be a highly sought-after, minimally invasive therapy for our patients in Peak, SC.
