Facial Aging and Lasers like Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant, RF like VIVA, Peels, Fillers, Skin Care, Face Lift, Fat Injections

I find that erbium or co2 do much more than microneedling/RF for aging but you can do that first and then maintain with fractional RF (intensif, viva) or fractional laser (fraxel, clear+brilliant.  Always use microneedling/PRP.  I never found sublative to be great.  Best, Dr. Emer.
