8 Active Ingredients To Use After RF Microneedling

ID Skin Revive is the product created after RF Microneedling that uses 8 popular actives. 

RF Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It has become all the rage in minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures used to improve the appearance of the skin, particularly in addressing concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and skin laxity.

This treatment involves the use of a specialized device that consists of tiny needles and delivers controlled RF energy to the deeper layers of the skin. These needles create microscopic punctures in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and triggering collagen production. The addition of RF energy helps to further enhance the rejuvenation process by penetrating the skin’s deeper layers. There are several well-known makers of these machines including Genius by Lutronic and Morpheus8 by InMode, amongst others.

Typically, after the procedure, a soothing cream or serum is applied to the treated area to help calm the skin. In order to enhance results, Trilogy Laboratories was asked to formulate the perfect post-treatment cream to accompany RF microneedling treatments. Our team of pharmacists, chemists, estheticians, and doctors also felt this was an ideal opportunity to enhance the microneedling treatment with a supercharged topical. We embraced the opportunity to create the perfect cream for immediate post-treatment and continued care!

8 Active Ingredients In ID Skin Revive to Maximize Patient Results

1 Growth Factors

Five different bio-engineered human recombinant Growth Factors work together to increase skin elasticity by up to 47% in just four weeks.

2 Stem Cells

Plant-derived stem cells elicit a rejuvenating effect by lifting and firming skin while fighting the appearance of wrinkles. The data has shown an increase in vitro of the production of collagen and elastin, 53% and 81%, respectively.

3 Peptides

Amino Acids, the building block of peptides and proteins, work synergistically with Growth Factors and Stem Cells to increase cell turnover accelerating the production of new healthy skin, collagen, and elastin.

4 Ceramides

Bind cells together for a smooth, firm appearance. They form the protective barrier of skin and are perfect for boosting moisture and stimulating repair.

5 Hyaluronic Acid

Seven active forms of Hyaluronic Acid with different molecular weights provide immediate moisturization to the skin at various layers in as little as 30 minutes, all while offering long-term 24-hour hydration.

6 Vitamins

Vitamin B9 and E work as antioxidants to promote cell turnover, reduce redness and maintain healthy skin.

7 Fatty Acids

Omega-3, 6, and 9 play an integral role in reducing inflammation, increasing the smoothness and softness of the skin, and enhancing its ability to act as a protective barrier.  Avocado and Sunflower Oils are made up of Omega Fatty Acids that work together to support and promote healthy skin.

8 Natural Active Ingredients

Red Marine Algae has been shown to increase cell turnover, firmness, elasticity, and smoothness, all while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Poria Mushroom and Reed Grass work together to effectively reduce inflammation and strongly support skin fight external stressors, which is ideal immediately post-procedure.

The ID Skin Pro Revive Rejuvenating Complex is not only soothing on immediate post-treatment skin but delivers a powerful cocktail of actives that dive deep into the epidermis supporting rejuvenation, boosting hydration, increasing cellular turnover, and accelerating the production of collagen and elastin.

ID Skin Pro has tried the rest and is ready for the best, incorporating Revive Cream, ID Skin’s most potent anti-aging formulation, into your RF microneedling regimens, as well as into your daily skin care routine!

She has held academic positions at the University of Utah and Nova Southeastern College of Pharmacy. Dr. Flaharty has published in numerous scientific journals, presented

Following academic positions, Dr. Flaharty worked in the Pharmaceutical Industry and has been a major contributor to the development and approval of more than 20 new prescription drugs in the US and worldwide.

In concert with her husband, Dr. Patrick Flaharty, she was the driving force behind the development of a line of private label skin care products to be used in his medical spa and cosmetic surgery practice. In late 2014, she purchased the assets of a small skin care company in order to have more control of the product line, and to fill what she perceived as a niche in the skin care industry. The goals of the new company, Trilogy Laboratories, are to manufacture small batch high quality products with appropriate concentrations of active ingredients. Trilogy produces the ID Skin product line for professional estheticians and creates private label lines for physicians, estheticians, salons, spas, e-commerce and celebrities. Trilogy Laboratories has been the recipient of multiple awards including Small Manufacturer of the Year (2016), Sterling Award for Manufacturing Excellence (2018), Florida Companies to Watch (2021).
