An advanced aesthetic procedure using extremely fine micro-sized 24k gold needles to penetrate the skin at a carefully prescribed depth. Then as a second step, state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology will deliver a prescribed amount of heat and energy to those deep layers to contract the tissue, melt fat, and stimulate your body’s natural mechanisms to produce more collagen. Collagen production occurs over the following several months.

Subtle results can be seen after you heal from the first session, but more noticeable and usually about 8 weeks following the first session. Best results are achieved in a series of 3-4 sessions, scheduled 3-4 weeks apart. Cost depends on areas treated.
