Remove Summer Sun Damage
with RF Needling or Pixel CO2
Laser Treatments

November 29, 2020

Sun damage is one of the most common factors to age our skin. When UV light penetrates too far into our dermal layer, it breaks down collagen and elastin, resulting in a reduction of skin elasticity and an overall appearance of aging, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, sun spots, and a degraded texture. Thankfully, RF Needling or Pixel CO2 laser treatments can remove summer sun damage with little to no downtime.

What is RF Needling?

Most micro-needling treatments create micro-injuries to the skin with hair-thin needles, using the body’s own healing process to fill in new cells and reduce skin damage with new growth. At Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics, our RF Needling treatment uses ultrasound technology and advanced radiofrequency energy to penetrate sun damaged skin without needles to stimulate collagen and elastin production and heal damaged cells dried out and discolored by the sun.

How RF Needling Works

Because our technology doesn’t penetrate the skin with needles, patients can avoid the painful bruising and sunburn-like effects micro-needling treatments can produce. The RF energy is delivered more deeply, so more damaged skin is healed than with other procedures, chemical peels, or topical treatments.

Pixel CO2 Laser Treatments

The Pixel CO2 laser treatment is another non-surgical option for reversing the effects of lasting sun damage. Using both ablative and non-ablative technology, the Pixel CO2 laser treatment resurfaces the topmost layer of the skin using thermal energy. This has the combined effect of removing damaged and dead skin cells as well as stimulating collagen and elastin production. The immediate result is smoother, softer skin and over time, fine lines and wrinkles fill in with new cell growth while the underlying collagen contracts, giving skin a tighter, more youthful appearance.

The Addition of Stem Cells

Stem Cell Serum added to either procedure has the benefit of more collagen production and increased skin cell growth. An at-home stem cell topical serum can be applied for 60 days to ensure your skin has everything it needs to recover from sun damage, and give you back your youthful glow.

  • Pediatrician Referred Us to Dr. Lester When Antibiotics Failed

    My young twin boys had ear infections for 3 months that 4 courses of antibiotics did not help. My pediatrician suggested I see Dr. Lester for homeopathy treatment. I had remembered that my friend’s son had suffered from chronic ear infections years ago and she went to see Dr. Lester and was very pleased with the results. Dr. Lester’s treatment was brilliant. The ear infections cleared up and when my sons got sick again they did not get any repeat ear infections. His evaluation and course of treatment worked so well for them that we now use him in conjunction with our regular pediatrician. Our pediatrician was quite happy with the results as well. I would also like to add that his staff is very compassionate, friendly and professional and made a stressful situation more comfortable and smoother. I highly recommend Dr Lester, he is a wonderful doctor!!

  • Integrative Medicine for ADD

    I have suffered with ADD all my life.I came to see Dr. Lester about 3 years ago, a referral from a friend. During my first appointment I felt heard for the first time. He did some testing, and put me on a supplement regimen. Dr Lester uses Integrative medicine. I followed his regimen. It has been a slow process, but well worth it. Using more natural ingredients has made me a much healthier person. I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Lester really knows his business, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. If you want a better quality of life, Dr. Lester through integrative medicine is the one to see. He’s the best.
