Microneedling has become an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure and we understand why. It is safe for all skin types and consistently delivers superior clinical results to stimulate cell renewal and promote collagen and elastin production. In turn, skin laxity, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles can be greatly diminished with minimal downtime.
At Skinlogics, we deliver Microneedling with Legend Pro™. It is the newest generation of microneedling technology that takes the results of traditional microneedling up a level with radio frequency energy, which will not only help with skin tone and texture but will also address sagging skin on the face, neck, hands, and body.
Make an appointment for a complimentary consultation to discuss Legend Pro™ Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment and the results you can expect.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a cosmetic treatment used to address various skin conditions. The technique involves using a pen-like device comprised of micro sterile needles on the skin. When pressed on to the skin, it creates controlled, microscopic injuries, which stimulates collagen. While the micro-channels are open, a Microneedling solution is topically applied and pushed into the skin to further promote healing and enhance the anti-aging benefits.
Legend Pro™ is unlike any other microneedling treatment. The TriPollar® RF and VoluDerm™ technologies target different skin layers individually. Preheating with the TriPollar® technology lowers the tissue impedance and increases vasodilatation, which may improve the efficacy of the VoluDerm™ micro-needling. Additionally, Legend Pro™ includes radiofrequency – the energy that gently heats subdermal adipose tissue for more profound tightening and toning.
What is Legend Pro™ treatment technology?
The latest innovative technology in microneedling treatment, Legend Pro™ delivers the deep fractional treatments, penetrating subdermal tissue. It also minimizes skin injury, increases treatment uniformity, and enables customized full body fractional procedures.
Legend Pro™ treatment is safe on skin types, up to and including VI, with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which is a common risk with other resurfacing methods. When performed by a trained and experienced Legend Pro provider, you can significantly improve skin tone, texture, and tightness, delivering healthy, glowing skin from the inside, out.
Which areas of the body can a Microneedling treatment be performed?
Legend Pro™ is ideal for any areas that have been affected by the natural aging process, overexposure to the sun or existing skin conditions. Treatable areas include the face, neck, décolletage, arms, abdomen, knees, chin, and any areas that have stretch marks or post-surgical scarring, although the most requested areas are face, neck, décolletage and hands. Due to the small Microneedling tip, we find it especially beneficial for small areas around the eyes and lips to help with crepiness, dark circles and smoker’s lines. Stretch marks and surgical scars on the body can also be diminished with Legend Pro™ Microneedling.
How is Legend Pro treatment performed?
During a Legend Pro™ treatment, your medical provider may apply a topical anesthetic to decrease the sensation of the microneedles and radiofrequency penetration. The provider will then use the tip of a handheld applicator that houses several microneedles, powered with radiofrequency. When the applicator is pressed against the skin for a few seconds, energy is inserted through the needles. Think of the motion like a stamping technique, rather than one continuous movement across the treatment area.
Are Legend Pro™ RF Microneedling treatments safe?
Legend Pro™ is FDA-approved. Safely penetrating deep into the skin and fat, the Legend Pro device sculpts the face and body for a smoother, sleeker and younger appearance.
What solutions are applied after the treatment?
After the procedure your provider will apply specific post procedure serums and hydrating products to protect and heal the skin.
Incorporating PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) – your own blood plasma – is another great option to add to Microneedling. The combination dramatically magnifies the rejuvenating effects of Microneedling with no risks related to rejection, allergies or other negative side effects of harsh chemicals.
What is Microneedling with Legend Pro™ recovery like?
Microneedling treatment is non-invasive, generally painless, and is performed quickly with a quick recovery time. Immediately after the treatment, the skin will feel like a sunburn, which will dissipate after a few hours. Over the next 2-3 days, some swelling, redness, and dryness is normal. Some people may also experience light flaking as the cells are turning over. The downtime depends on how aggressive the treatment settings are.
We recommend that clients keep the skin well hydrated and protected with physical sunscreen. Clients may resume their normal skincare regiment, including any Retin-A, once their skin is back to baseline.
How many Legend Pro™ treatments are needed to see results?
Regardless of your concerns, we recommend starting with a minimum of 3 sessions. For best results sessions are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Who is a good candidate for Microneedling?
What we love about Legend Pro™ is that almost anyone is a candidate for this treatment! Anyone who has healthy skin and wants to treat and improve conditions such as acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, stretch marks, and certain pigment issues, can consider Legend Pro as a treatment option.
Certain medical disorders may be contraindicated for this procedure. Your provider will ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment during your consultation.
