Smooth and Tighten Skin with 3-in-1 RF Microneedling Treatments in Madison, WI
Age-related changes can cause formerly firm and healthy skin to lose its elasticity and become wrinkled or discoloured over time. The unique Legend Pro™ platform at Madison, WI’s Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center is an answer to this, providing lasting results with almost no discomfort or downtime and no need for anesthesia. One of the major advantages of this treatment is that it improves superficial concerns while simultaneously encouraging healing and regeneration in the deeper layers of the skin.
The clinically proven Legend Pro™ device by Lumenis harnesses the abilities of multiple technologies—including Tripollar® radiofrequency (RF) energy, VoluDerm™ microneedling, and TriFractional™ technology—for comprehensive skin rejuvenation. These non-surgical treatments are tailored to the unique needs of each patient and are used to correct many different signs of skin aging.
What is Legend Pro™?
Legend Pro™ skin rejuvenation technology is effective because it targets the two main, underlying causes of skin aging: collagen loss and damaged cells.
Collagen and elastin are two of the most abundant proteins in the skin, working together to keep it strong and elastic. As we get older, our body creates less collagen and elastin—and the existing proteins also break down more quickly because of stressors in the environment, like sunlight and air pollution. As a result, depressions and wrinkles form on the skin, which begins to sag in certain areas, such as the cheeks, lower jaw, and neck.
The TriPollar® RF applicators used for Legend Pro™ safely and effectively deliver controlled heating to the deeper layers of the skin. This improves the structure of the existing elastin and collagen fibers.
The super thin VoluDerm™ electrodes on the device create tiny channels, triggering the skin to repair itself.
Additionally, TriFractional™ technology is used for pinpoint ablation (removing cells from the surface) and RF heating in the epidermal layer (prompting new collagen and elastin production).
As a result, the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and younger looking. Each of the three modalities lasts roughly 15 to 20 minutes per session for a treatment that takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
What Does Legend Pro™ Treat?
Legend Pro™ reaches multiple layers of skin at the same time on the face and neck, where the production of new collagen and elastin in the deep dermis revitalizes the skin, tones and lifts the underlying muscle layers of the face (SMAS), stimulates skin cell turnover, and minimizes pigmentation issues on the surface. Together, these improvements can address the following concerns:
- mild to moderate wrinkles
- skin laxity
- dull or dry complexion
- sun damage
- brown spots
- light acne scarring
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Legend Pro™?
Patients who want to improve the general appearance of their skin without a major procedure or surgery can be good candidates for Legend Pro™. Anyone who has blemishes, wrinkles, sun damage, or loose skin can benefit from the device. Patients in their mid-to-late 30s, 20s, or even younger can use it to reduce scars from acne, while older patients can enjoy a generally rejuvenated look.
Results and Recovery After Legend Pro™
The Legend Pro™ three-in-one technology is designed so that there is virtually no discomfort or bleeding during and after the treatment. Patients won’t need to have a numbing cream applied beforehand, nor take pain medications after.
Downtime is minimal, so you can return to your favorite activities within 24 hours. Some improvements will be seen shortly after the treatment, with results improving over the following weeks and months as skin cells turn over and collagen and elastin levels rise.
What Other Skin Rejuvenation Procedures Are Available?
Radiance Skin Therapy and Laser Center offers a range of other noninvasive, skin rejuvenation procedures in addition to the Legend Pro™ platform. Skin resurfacing techniques such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion create a more uniform tone and texture. Laser skin resurfacing and IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments improve more severe hyperpigmentation and scarring.
Genius RF Microneedling is another combined radiofrequency and microneedling technique that can be used as an alternative to Legend Pro™. This RF microneedling system can be performed together with body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting® to optimize results. When Legend Pro™ is combined with Lumenis M22 IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments that get rid of unwanted pigmentation, the procedure is known as SmoothGlo.
