VoluDerm is a simple procedure that’s performed here in our clinic by Gabriela, our master esthetician. The VoluDerm handpiece uses a number of very fine “micro-pins” to penetrate skin to the mid-dermal layer.
During your procedure, Gabriela first cleanses your skin to prepare it. She may use a light topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure, but because the needles we use are so small, many patients find that it’s not necessary.
As Gabriela passes the handpiece over your skin, the needles gently penetrate it and deliver pulses of radiofrequency energy at the same time. The micro-perforations made by the needles stimulate the skin’s natural healing response, while the radiofrequency energy causes tissues to contract and tighten.
Although your skin may feel tender or inflamed after treatment, symptoms are not typically severe enough to keep you from returning to your daily activities immediately.
Over the next few days and weeks, the results of your VoluDerm treatment become apparent. Your treated skin begins to tighten, and you may see renewed volume. Textural irregularities and wrinkles soften and smooth, producing a youthful look that can be enjoyed for months.
