If you’re tired of seeing more fine lines and wrinkles as the years pass, make this new year the time you turn back the clock on aging! When you’re unhappy with the skin you’re in, your self-esteem and happiness can take a big hit.

That’s why Dr. Casey and Kate offer compassionate care and a comprehensive line of services to help you look and feel your best.
We’ve curated this helpful guide to explain how the winning combo of radiofrequency and microneedling can turn back the clock, rejuvenating your skin’s texture and firmness. Read on to learn more!
What is radiofrequency skin treatment?
Radiofrequency skin treatment is a safe and effective way to naturally smooth out lines and wrinkles using radiofrequency energy to heat your skin. The heat stimulates collagen production to rejuvenate your skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
At Northshore Skincare & MedSpa, we provide you with the best outcome possible by using the optimal temperature for stimulating collagen production without overheating your skin. You’ll be amazed to see the positive changes in your skin after the treatment.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling uses tiny needles, too small to hurt or cause bleeding, to repair damage from the sun, reduce the appearance of scars and blemishes, smooth lines and wrinkles, and give you firmer skin. This minimally invasive treatment uses your body’s natural healing process by sending a signal to the treated areas of skin to start the repair process.
The healing signal triggers an increase in your body’s collagen production, which creates new skin cells. The result? A smoother, brighter complexion!
Why is collagen important for younger-looking skin?
You may see signs of aging on the top layer of your skin, but the process begins well below the surface. In the middle layers of your skin, collagen and other proteins important in the maintenance of your skin work together to make new skin cells.
When your body’s collagen production increases, the top layer of your skin is replaced more frequently. When you’re young, you naturally make lots of collagen, which helps keep your skin looking young and smooth. Starting in your 20s, your body begins making less collagen.
Declining collagen production leads to the following signs and symptoms:
- Fine lines
- Crepey skin
- Crow’s feet
- Saggy skin
- More prominent-looking bones
By the time you reach your 40s, collagen production has dropped off substantially. Menopause marks the beginning of another steep decline in collagen production for women, and by 60, both men and women have limited collagen production.
