July 2019 • 53 © GETTY IMAGES At The Beverly Hills Plaza Medical Spa inside The Beverly Hills Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, the top treatment is the Profound Microneedle RF, which combines microneedling with radiofrequency. According to esthetician Jeanie Bryant, client satisfaction with the service is very high—and for good reason. "With this device, heat energy is sent down the needles with couplers that measure the exact temperature at all times, offering more precise results and tackling wrinkles, rosacea, scarring and loss of elasticity," she explains. "Plus, it stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA) production—ideal for the neck and jawline—with natural-looking results." Bryant adds that clients also enjoy microneedling combined with LED therapy and a stem cell infusion mask—an affordable treatment that can provide a dramatic transformation in terms of texture, wrinkles, tightening, scarring and hyperpigmentation. "It's a one- stop shop, and you can double your results by using retinoids beforehand," she notes. "Or, add a cream chemical peel for a few minutes after microneedling to reboot stem cells."

Another popular multitasker is galvanic current, which creates two signifi cant reactions: chemical (desincrustation) and ionic (iontophoresis). "The Ultrasonic can be used for exfoliation and product penetration. Galvanic current cleans the skin and infuses moisture. Mesotherapy delivers nutrients via subcutaneous injections.
