What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Dr. James Leffingwell uses an exceptional technique known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling that creates gorgeous outcomes for our patients in Midlothian, TX. RF remedies have been around for many years and are popular in the cosmetic industry for their skin tightening effects. This particular type of therapy utilizes heat to promote the creation of collagen deep within the skin to reveal a firmer, smoother surface. This technique is combined with microneedling in order to optimize the results of both treatments. At Refining Beauty, we frequently incorporate this new process into our patients' skin treatments using state-of-the-art Morpheus8™ technology to produce healthier skin, a smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.
"Friendly staff, very understanding. The procedure room is clean and comfortable. I had liposuction of my inner thighs and I am so happy I went to refining beauty. I only felt a small amount of pain and discomfort but the doctor took care of that for me. I would highly recommend refining beauty."- J.C. / Google / Sep 04, 2022
"I originally started with Cross Timbers for my husband’s tonsils and allergies. Then again for my daughters tongue tie. All of these were done with Dr. Luke Shellenberger (at the Mansfield office.) In talking with the staff I found out they have a 🗣 MEDSPA at the midlothian office! The ball has not been dropped on ANY level with this practice. At the Midlothian office the receptionist Angela is on her A game ALWAYS! Dr. L is a hoot and a fantastic dr! I went in there originally for Botox. I had Becky and Rebecca in there assisting him (both nurses and fun personalities) which was VERY nice and comforting. Most medspas do NOT have nurses, some places they’re not even MA’s which is ridiculous. After Botox I started doing other things to help with my face because I didn’t want fillers, so they gave me some other options. His Medspa “guru” (as I like to call her) is nurse Rebecca. She is so informative through the whole process and aftercare. EXCELLENT bedside manner. So far I’ve done Opus (which is plasma), Clearlift, and Harmony. I haven’t been disappointed with any of these results. Below is a (creepy) picture of me with my very first treatment results. I’m making the face so you can see where the Botox worked SO well on my forehead. We are working on wrinkles, lightening my freckles/age spots, and tightening. I can’t wait to see what the end results are! We have currently started working on my HORRIBLE scars on my arms from getting Brachioplasty. They also run specials every month which I’ve taken full advantage of!! :) The only thing I wish was different would be a separate entrance for MedSpa only but, to my knowledge this part of the practice is still growing so hopefully I’ll see it in the future!"- K.W. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
"I had a wonderful experience at Refining Beauty. Rebeca is doing an excellent job every time I come in. I can’t wait for my next sessions. I highly recommend this place"- Google User / Google / Apr 01, 2022
"Over the years I have developed some abdominal and back fat that I have not been happy with and have not been able to lose with dieting. I am typically anti-plastic surgery. But I learned about laser Lipo from a friend who referred me to Dr. Leffingwell. After speaking with Dr.Jim and his staff I was more intrigued. They answered all my questions and shared with me exactly what to expect. I decided to get this procedure because it was less invasive. The procedure was exactly how they described it and it was very simple. I was out of the office in a couple of hours. The results are amazing and I wish I had done this years ago. But the timing in meeting Dr. Leffingwell and his staff couldn’t have been more perfect. This dude is very happy with the results. No more love handles for me. I can’t wait until the summer to get some sun on these new abs. Thank you Dr.Jim !"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 09, 2022
"In short, Dr. Leffingwell demonstrated why physicians are often held in high regard. His competence and manner were very reassuring under difficult circumstances. As the "on call" doctor for his partnership, he stepped up, and, within about an hour altered my anxiety level from about 8 or 9 to around 2. Without the benefit of an assistant/nurse he performed brilliantly in alleviating my post surgery (deviated septum repair...) excessive bleeding."- J. / Healthgrades / Jan 31, 2022
How is RF Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling uses a tool with small needles on the end that's rolled carefully against the skin to puncture and create microinjuries that disrupt the tissues and produce collagen. Some also refer to this as collagen induction treatment. New skin begins to grow as the skin heals, leaving the surface looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and more rejuvenated. The procedure itself is quite simple. The handheld Morpheus8 device works by providing short bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterilized, golden microneedles. This energy is transmitted through the needles, which concurrently puncture your skin and return the electrodes into the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that offer cumulative and ongoing results.
RF Microneedling With Morpheus8 FAQ
Does RF microneedling with Morpheus8 hurt?
Because a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area, you should have minimal discomfort during the treatment session. During the procedure, we will make sure to ask you if you are comfortable. After the numbing agent wears off, you may experience mild soreness for a short time as your skin is healing itself.
Can I have RF microneedling if I have darker skin?
Yes. RF microneedling can safely treat all colors and types of skin without increased risk of side effects, provided you are healthy enough and qualify for the procedure.
How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
The ideal number of Morpheus8 treatments will vary by patient. Some Midlothian, TX area individuals may need more sessions compared to other patients. On average, most patients receive 3 – 4 treatments at one-month intervals.
Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?
Yes. You might consider combining a Morpheus8 treatment plan with wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers, which can give you an even more radiant look on top of your improved complexion from RF microneedling. During your consultation with Dr. Leffingwell or a member of his team, you will be asked about all your aesthetic goals.
