VoluDerm™ (Microneedling with RF)
Manufactured by Pollogen®, VoluDerm™ is a revolutionary microneedling procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to nonsurgically diminish signs of aging and revitalize skin on the face and other delicate areas of the body. Thanks to the system’s advanced RF technology, VoluDerm™ is able to more efficiently and effectively reduce wrinkles and enhance dermal volume than traditional microneedling alternatives. As an added benefit, there is minimal—if any—downtime or discomfort associated with treatment, and results are often evident within 24–72 hours.
What Can VoluDerm™ Treatments Do?
The VoluDerm™ microneedling procedure can be employed to address various aesthetic concerns on sensitive areas of skin such as the face, hands, and décolleté. The minimally invasive treatment works to encourage the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, both of which help to regenerate and rejuvenate skin in the targeted region(s). Based on the specific needs, goals, and skin type of the patient, VoluDerm™ can be custom-tailored to help:
- Improve dermal volume
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Minimize acne scarring
- Promote skin resurfacing
- Stimulate skin renewal
The Power of TriFractional VoluDerm™
TriFractional VoluDerm™ is considered the leading treatment in RF skin resurfacing, often achieving more effective results than comparable procedures such as Clear + Brilliant®! This technology can offer all the skin rejuvenation benefits of microneedling with the added control and pinpoint precision of the TriFractional VoluDerm™ handpiece. The unique cone-shaped pins of the handpiece are designed to slide seamlessly into the epidermis and trigger regeneration of skin cells in a wider surface area, thereby reducing downtime and discomfort as much as possible. Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas is among the only practices in the region with TriFractional VoluDerm™ technology.
The VoluDerm™ Procedure
At Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas, the VoluDerm™ procedure is conducted by our expertly trained aestheticians. During treatment, the VoluDerm™ handpiece is pressed lightly onto the skin and gently guided over the targeted area as tiny micro-pins utilize RF energy to reach the mid-dermis layer. By creating these small dermal channels, the micro-pins and thermal energy effectively stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which spurs the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin. Over time, the continued growth of these structural elements helps to significantly improve the health and volume of the skin for a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
Following the VoluDerm™ treatment, some degree of redness and/or swelling in the targeted region(s) may initially be apparent, but these side effects are both minimal and temporary. There is virtually no discomfort during or after the procedure, and the majority of individuals are able to return to normal daily activities—including exercise—right away. The maximal benefits of VoluDerm™ treatments can take up to three weeks to be evident. Once final results are attained, the skin should look smoother, fuller, and beautifully renewed.
