Skin Icon Radio Frequency & Micro-Needling
Advanced Anti-aging Technology with the latest Micro-needle Fractional RF System is a brand new fractional-radio-frequency device that jumpstarts collagen production, smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne scars, and smoothes out crepe skin. Different from microneedling treatments you’ve come to know and love, it adds controlled radio-frequency energy to the mix to target deeper layers of skin while leaving the outer layer of skin intact. We like to refer to this treatment as microneedling “on steroids.”
It has had outstanding success for all skin types–especially darker–with a very low risk of side effects and PIH (Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation). This is a key difference when compared to optical-based treatments (IPL & CO2 lasers).

How long does a Skin Icon treatment take?
The topical anesthetic cream requires 40-60 minutes to take effect before treatment, and then the treatment takes 30 minutes, including aftercare. So, each session requires approximately 1 hour.
How does the treatment feel?
Especially with the correct application of a good topical anesthetic, the treatment is highly tolerable
How long is recovery after Skin Icon treatment?
You may experience transient pinkness on the treated areas for 3-4 hours initially. At our clinic, we use a LED machine to help minimize the redness after the treatment. The downtime involved with SKin Icon treatments is significantly reduced due to it targeting the deeper layers of the skin. For optimum recovery and to minimize downtime even further you can request to add PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma to apply post-treatment and to take home (this is an additional fee). Overall, 1-2 days would be more than sufficient for recovery, which is light-years better than traditional resurfacing laser treatments that accomplish the same results, such as Fraxel or CO2 laser, or even traditional microneedling.
What is the recommended treatment regimen?
The typical interval between sessions is once every 3-4 weeks. Most patients see excellent results following 2-4 treatments. This may vary according to your skin condition and a proper consultation will give you a better idea of how many treatments you will need.
