For skin that is firmer, smoother, clearer, and more refreshed, our Lumenis® Legend Pro™ is an excellent option. This skin rejuvenation treatment uses microneedling in the Worcester, MA area with radiofrequency to remodel the underlying tissue and stimulate brand-new collagen production.
The Powerful Combination of Microneedling and Radiofrequency
Microneedling with radiofrequency gets incredible results because it combines two highly effective procedures that work together in one singular treatment. As the microneedles enter the skin, the radiofrequency heat energy reaches deeply into the sub-dermal layers, resulting in both internal and external improvement. Our team at Skin Dermatology in Shrewsbury, MA is very excited to offer this revolutionary skin treatment.

What RF Microneedling Does for the Skin
Microneedling creates microscopic punctures in the skin by using a device that houses dozens of tiny needles. When these small punctures are made, the body instantly responds by sending in its natural “wound repair team” to provide healthy new tissue (collagen, elastin, and skin cells) to the area. Over the course of a few months, the brand-new collagen your body made will result in smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
The microscopic punctures also enhance blood flow, creating a new network of blood vessels. This helps with the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and other areas of concern.
Radiofrequency energy gently heats up collagen within the skin, which tightens it beneath the dermis and improves texture. This process also creates new collagen, just like microneedling. This means that your collagen production will be amplified.
The radiofrequency energy is able to go very deep thanks to the microneedles, which is why the Legend Pro is such a powerhouse treatment.

What to Expect During Treatment
No anesthesia is needed before a Legend Pro microneedling in Shrewsbury, but we will cleanse your skin first. The microneedling device will be “stamped” over your skin over the course of 15-20 minutes. Immediately afterwards, your skin will feel warm and will appear red, but you can return to your regular day if desired. We typically apply a calming cream following treatment. We recommend 4-6 treatments (scheduled in 2-4 week intervals) for best results.
Recovery and Results
Your skin may feel warm and appear red after your Legend Pro microneedling treatment, but these side effects will resolve within 24 hours. Some patients also experience mild swelling. A noticeable improvement to the skin is often immediately apparent, and because of the collagen production, you’ll see your skin looking better and better over the following weeks and months. These results last 1-2 years, and maintenance treatments can be performed annually or semi-annually.
