Age can take a real toll on your skin. That’s especially true here in Florida, where our beloved sunshine can contribute to lines, wrinkles, and other skin damage.
Fortunately, you don't have to put up with aging skin. At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, Deborah D. Viglione, MD, an integrative and internal medicine physician, offers a full range of skin rejuvenation treatments.
One of those treatments is microneedling with radiofrequency energy, which tightens your skin, giving it a younger, fresher appearance. Here, we invite you to learn more about this innovative treatment so you can decide whether it might be right for you.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses very small needles to create numerous tiny impressions in the uppermost layer of your skin. These tiny needle pricks trigger a healing response from your body that increases the production of collagen, a natural protein found in skin tissues.
Increasing the production of collagen helps improve your skin's appearance because it adds volume and freshness to your skin. Collagen levels in the skin decrease with age, but microneedling helps kickstart new collagen production.
When added to microneedling treatment, radiofrequency (RF) energy amplifies the benefits of the microneedling process. RF energy penetrates your skin and prompts a deeper, more comprehensive natural healing process than microneedling alone.
By combining RF energy with microneedling, you receive more satisfying results than you would with microneedling on its own.
At Living Waters, we use the Potenza RF microneedling system. We've chosen this system because of the superior results it delivers to our patients. It allows us to customize your treatment to meet your specific skin care goals. It can be used anywhere on your body, including on your hands and face, and on any type of skin.
In addition to lines and wrinkles, Potenza microneedling with RF can reduce the appearance of acne scars, age spots, sun damage, large pores, and other skin imperfections.
Because microneedling is minimally invasive, recovery time is quick. You may have some redness or minor swelling after the procedure, but that goes away soon. You should be sure to wear sunscreen after undergoing a microneedling procedure — but with the strength of our Florida sun, you should already be doing that!
Depending on your skin care goals, you may benefit from multiple Potenza treatments.
If time and the sun have been hard on your skin, we can help. In addition to microneedling with RF energy, we offer a full menu of exciting cosmetic treatments for skin rejuvenation, including dermal fillers, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, PDO threads, and photorejuvenation. We also offer a range of anti-aging treatments for men and women.
