Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique wherein micro-punctures on the skin’s surface trigger cellular regeneration and collagen production, which helps you achieve smoother, firmer, and more youthful skin. Microneedling can be combined with radiofrequency energy (RF microneedling) to boost the results and facilitate improved skin tightening. SkinScience Medical Aesthetics performs RF microneedling with the advanced VirtueRF platform.
About Microneedling with Radiofrequency
Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment wherein a special microneedling device with evenly-spaced needles makes micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. Your body responds to the injuries by activating skin cell regeneration and collagen production. The damaged skin cells are eventually replaced by newer, healthier skin, and the increased collagen reserves make your skin look firm and taut.
Radiofrequency therapy involves using thermal energy to encourage skin tightening. The radiofrequency waves penetrate the skin’s dermal layers to stimulate collagen production, which makes your skin look firm and taut. RF microneedling essentially combines these two techniques — the microneedles deliver radiofrequency energy into your dermis as they puncture the uppermost layers of your skin. The two complement each other’s results.

Ultimate Duo (RF Microneedling + CoolPeel)
SkinScience Medical Aesthetics is proud to present Ultimate Duo, an innovative treatment modality that combines the powerful benefits of RF Microneedling and CoolPeel. Generally speaking, RF microneedling and CoolPeel are performed as standalone procedures, each using different techniques to improve your skin quality. Combining the two procedures speeds up your body’s collagen production capabilities, while addressing more skin concerns, such as laxity, textural irregularities, and scarring.
CoolPeel is a non-surgical CO2 skin resurfacing technique without harsh side effects or downtime. During this procedure, we use the Tetra CO2 device to deliver short pulses of CO2 laser energy to the skin’s uppermost layers. The CO2 energy ablates the damaged skin tissues, thereby paving the way for smoother, softer, and more youthful skin underneath. This treatment also encourages collagen production, making your skin look firm and taut.
