Non-insulated gold plated RF microneedle technology with Smooth Motion insertion for optimal comfort and results
What is RF Microneedling?
Radiofrequency with microneedling stimulates the skin's ability to produce collagen. You get the benefit of both modalities, microneedling combined with the energy of radiofrequency.
Problems RF Microneedling Helps:
uneven skin texture
fine lines and wrinkles
The most common areas treated are the face, neck & décolletage. Although it can be used on almost any area of the body.
RF microneedling works by creating a very small amount of damage to make the body think it has been wounded. This in turn stimulates our body's natural wound-healing response. The result is new collagen and elastin. (Translation: lifting and tightening!)
Aging along with other factors (mainly sun damage) breaks down our body's ability to produce collagen and elastin and slows down the rate of production. Procedures like RF microneedling slow down and even reverse this process, helping skin look and act younger.
Pros and Cons of RF Microneedling:
Efficiently take advantage of two collagen production stimulating treatments in one session
All skin types/colors can be treated with low risk when administered properly
Minimal downtime/similar results compared to other modalities such as laser resurfacing
The treatment can be performed on almost any body area
Benefits include skin tightening, smoothing, fading scars, and diminishing stretch marks
Requires 3-5 treatments, four weeks apart
Can take up to six months to see your final outcome
Even with numbing cream, you can experience some uncomfortable sensation
Risk of hyperpigmentation for darker skin tones
Separate Focused RF Handpieces
My machine has several separate handpieces delivering focused radio frequency without needles. Enabling treatments to be very specific to your skin concerns.
For example, the eye and neck area can be pre-treated with the RF handpieces followed by the RF microneedling treatment. Alternatively, the face and neck can be treated with the RF handpieces for a totally needle-free facial with zero downtime!
The RF technology of this machine delivers energy deep into the dermis with minimal surface heat, which means minimal discomfort.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
RF microneedling treatment normally takes 60 to 90 minutes. The skin will be numbed for 30 to 45 minutes, cleansed, and disinfected. During the treatment you may feel a warm, prickling sensation that can be somewhat uncomfortable. After the treatment, a calming mask and serum will be applied. You will be given instructions for at-home care as well! Most patients have little downtime, but it is common to have pinpoint bleeding and mild swelling directly afterward. This is expected and should resolve itself in a few days.
When Will I See Results?
Your skin will begin looking brighter and smoother approximately two weeks after treatment. Improvement will continue with each treatment. As your skin begins to produce more collagen and elastin it gradually looks more plump and firm, and fine lines soften and diminish. It takes about six months to see full results.
Like any skin revitalizing treatment, RF microneedling is not permanent. Results last one to two years, depending on how each person's body responds. Overall health, nutrition, previous sun damage, genetics, and at-home skincare routine all play a part in your long-term results. Think of it like working out, we don’t exercise once every 6 months and expect muscles to form! It takes dedication and consistency. Your skin is no different!

Why Should I Have Microneedling?
Why would anyone recommend repeatedly poking needles into the skin for the sake of beauty? I have been asked this question more than you can imagine! I’ve also been told it is a dangerous procedure by those who do not have a full understanding of what microneedling is or what it entails. (Or just afraid of needles and don’t want to admit it!) If that is the case I completely understand and offer numerous alternative treatments that do not involve needles. I will do my best to clearly explain microneedling and why you should consider investing in this cutting edge anti-aging procedure.
As we age the body’s ability to regenerate new skin cells and produce collagen significantly decreases. Collagen production is strongest around the age of 20. At 40 we produce approximately 20% less, 30% less at 50.
Microneedling tricks the skin into thinking it has been wounded, thus stimulating our natural wound response. The body produces new collagen and elastin and sends it to the perceived wound (your face). Plumping, firming and filling the area. Are you intrigued yet?
Lisa G’s machine is a motorized pen, not a roller. The sterile cartridges are pre-packaged and have nine surgical steel needles which create tiny precise channels in the skin at a very high speed. A circular motion is used when passing over the area of skin being treated. Dermal needling rollers can cause damage such as tearing of the skin. Motorized pens produce better results with quicker healing.
Your skin will be numbed, cleansed, and sterilized. A solution of PCA Skin hyaluronic acid will be needled into the skin throughout your treatment. I recommend using only hyaluronic for 24 hours after your microneedling.
Who can be treated?
MOST skin types and MOST areas of the body can be treated (acne is not treatable as it can spread bacteria).
What areas of the body can be treated?
I have had amazing results on tummies that have stretch marks from babies! I combine needling with Radio Frequency which tightens the area. With most scarring starting treatment while the scars are still pink will produce a quicker result! Speaking from personal experience after a recent surgery!
What skin conditions are treatable?
Acne or surgery scars
Stretch marks (new mom stretch marks)
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Lift and tighten
Fine lines and wrinkles visibly reduced
Pores become finer
Improves acne scarring
Improves facial scarring
Enhances overall appearance of skin
How many treatments will I need?
I recommend a minimum of 3 to 5 treatments to produce a cumulative result in the area treated. Treatments are typically 4 weeks apart. Deep wrinkles, years of sun damage, stretch marks and scars may require a few series of treatments to achieve desired results. This treatment is progressive, visible results can be seen after a few days, weeks. And will continue to improve for up to 6 months. Normal aging still continues, thus maintenance treatments are recommended.
Does mirconeedling hurt?
Prior to your treatment I will apply a thick layer of topical numbing gel for 30-45 minutes. I test the most sensitive areas at 30 minutes, if you feel any pokiness I will let it sit longer. Most people feel almost nothing after having been treated with the numbing gel. My clients have reported they enjoy the forced downtime either napping or meditating! My treatment bed is a little slice of heaven!
What is the maintenance?
What you do at home is far more important than anything I do in the treatment room. Having an exceptional routine morning and night will give you longer lasting results. I recommend using PCA Skin C&E as well as an appropriate PCA Skin Retinol to maintain skin health.
Having a series of microneedling treatments once a year will maintain your results. Although personally I alternate PCA skin chemical peels with microneedling (as do many of my clients) this boosts the production of collagen continuously. Treating the skin once a month, alternating between peels and needling. The results are stunning!
What is the downtime?
Immediately after your treatment your skin will look slightly pink to very red and flushed. It can feel and look like a mild sunburn. Each persons skin is very different, some have no or very little redness the next day while others take a few days for the residual redness to dissipate. Each day the redness will decrease. There may be a little peeling as it is exfoliating. Many factors play a part in healing time. During our consultation I can give a better idea of how I think your skin will heal and what the healing time will be. I ALWAYS recommend scheduling a first time needling when you have a few days to recover. Away from special events or picture days!

Greencaine gel containing 4% lidocaine will be applied to your skin and covered. It will take 30-45 minutes for the skin to sufficiently numb. Your skin will be cleansed with a mild cleanser and disinfected before the treatment. PCA Skin hyaluronic acid will be needled into your skin throughout the needling process and at the conclusion of the procedure. Please do not put any other products on your skin after the procedure unless directed by Lisa G Skincare.
Immediately after the treatment you will be very red and a slight swelling may be present. Depending on the extent of the treatment it can last a couple of hours to a few days. The redness will fade more each day. Hydrating Serum is very helpful during the healing process. You may feel dry or chapped with some flakiness.
Some clients will see results from the very first treatment and others will need multiple procedures to see results. Treatments should be done every 4 weeks.The results at 30 days are not a complete indication of the process of remodeling and collagen reformation. Complete healing, including collagen strand development and vascular development can actually take between 3 months to a year. Even after the collagen is laid down in the healing process, it takes time to mature into a similar matrix of strong healthy dermal tissue.
Avoid using sunscreen for 24 hours. Avoid applying makeup for 24 hours. High quality mineral makeup is recommended such as Jane Iredale. Use a calming, mild cleanser with clean hands to gently wash your face. Avoid touching the treated area as much as possible. Make sure you have a clean pillow case. If you have animals keep them away from your face for the 24 hours. If you wear glasses make sure they are disinfected on the areas that will touch your face. If you wear hats launder them before wearing them.
Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks if possible. After 3 days you can return to your normal skincare routine.
