What is RF Microneedling?
For firmer, smoother skin, our aesthetics team can treat your skin with our Morpheus8 radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment. Our board-certified internist, Dr. Padma Sripada, is proud to offer the Castleton, NY area this unique skin rejuvenation treatment that produces beautiful results. At Dr. Padma's Aesthetics, we often recommend a series of Morpheus8 sessions to people who have lost elasticity in the skin on their face or body.
The RF energy combined with microneedling micro-injuries will "interrupt" the tissues and initiate collagen production deep within the skin. You will create firmer, smoother skin. The newly formed collagen can improve the tightness of mildly loose skin. Adding RF microneedling to your skincare regimen can also produce healthier skin, a much smoother feel, and a glowing complexion. Contact online or by phone to schedule your appointment.
"Dr Padma’s spa treatments are very effective. I experienced a big decrease in brown spots, a more firm skin tone, and a glowing complexion. I’m 76 yo, so that’s saying a lot about these treatments. I highly recommend you consider this for yourself. Dr Sripada is also my primary care physician and, in my opinion, the best! She makes herself available when you need her, returns phone calls and messages in a timely manner, never rushes a visit, explains things clearly, and, very important to me, treats the whole person. Not just physical concerns, but also a person’s mental and emotional health. She is an excellent diagnostician who cares for her patients with patience, caring, compassion, and concern. A bonus: her staff is equally professional and caring."- B.N. / Google / May 17, 2021
"I am scheduled for hip surgery later this month, but there's great uncertainty about timing, given the Covid surge. Dr. Sripada's calm professionalism during my clearance visit was most reassuring and welcome. I had put off finding a general practitioner for years; so grateful for having established a relationship with her and this practice."- K.S. / Google / Jan 01, 2021
"I love going to see Dr. Sripada. She is a great Doctor and easy to talk to. She gives great advice and recommendations for things you might need. Everyone at her office is kind and very helpful and all of them are professional. I’ve recommended several people to go to her as they’re Primary Doctor."- L.T. / Google / Jul 01, 2021

Am I a candidate for microneedling?
Dr. Padma would be happy to provide you with a skin assessment and make a recommendation for RF microneedling if you do qualify. Most of our patients over the age of 40 get the most benefit from our Morpheus8 technology because the skin loses its elasticity as we age. RF microneedling can be a wonderful treatment if you need to:
- Boost your collagen levels for firmer skin
- Improve skin irregularities like discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and more
- Heal skin damaged by the sun
- Decrease the appearance of acne scars
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, more luminous look
Our aesthetics team can help you decide whether RF microneedling is right for you.
Our Rf Microneedling Technique
Your RF microneedling treatment will take place inside Dr. Padma's office in one of our cozy treatment rooms. We can apply a numbing cream to your treatment area to minimize your discomfort if needed. You may also choose to have a facial treatment before your RF microneedling for exceptional results. Dr. Padma will glide the Morpheus8 over the desired area in sections, and she will repeat this until the entire area is thoroughly covered. The Morpheus8 will emit RF energy and deliver brief energy bursts through the microneedles. This will simultaneously puncture your skin. Over time, new skin will form, which will leave the surface looking brighter and feeling smoother.
After Your Morpheus8 treatment
You can expect to see pinpoint scabs appear 24 – 72 hours after your Morpheus8 RF microneedling session. Not to worry, the scabs will naturally disappear when the underlying skin has healed. Outcomes should become noticeable at week three or four as the skin heals. Dr. Padma will make you a personalized follow-up plan if you need to have multiple sessions (scheduled at least a month apart).
