MI Skin Dermatology Center: Melda Isaac, MD

Microneedling is a popular beauty trend, creating smooth, glowing skin without the pain or downtime of more aggressive procedures. Adding radiofrequency to this popular treatment enhances its ability to tighten and firm lax skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin texture.

When it comes to microneedling results, though, seeing is believing. In this post, we’ll show our patients’ dramatic skin tightening improvement using their actual microneedling and RF microneedling before and after pictures.

We offer a variety of topical solutions formulated for different benefits, such as anti-aging or skin brightening.
