Energy Devices at McGee Plastic Surgery

Dr. Catherine McGee, a double board-certified Lafayette plastic surgeon, offers a range of advanced Energy Devices at McGee Plastic Surgery in Lafayette, LA. These state-of-the-art technologies provide innovative, non-surgical solutions to achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance.

What are Energy Devices?

Energy Devices encompass a range of technologies that harness the power of light energy to improve the skin. These treatments offer a non-surgical and minimally invasive approach to address various signs of aging and imperfections. Here at McGee Plastic Surgery, we offer three cutting-edge Energy Devices, each with unique benefits:


This innovative treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. Tiny needles create micro-channels in the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production, while the RF energy further enhances these results. Genius® is ideal for improving skin texture, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and minimizing scars.


This laser treatment gently removes the outer layer of damaged skin, revealing a smoother and brighter complexion. KeraLase™ effectively addresses sun damage, uneven skin tone, and mild wrinkles.

LaseMD Ultra™

This advanced laser resurfacing treatment utilizes fractional technology to deliver targeted energy deep into the skin. LaseMD Ultra™ stimulates collagen production, leading to improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and overall skin texture.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

The results of Energy Devices treatments are gradual and become more noticeable over time as your skin continues to produce new collagen. You may see some initial improvement immediately following the treatment, with continued improvement over the following weeks and months.

Recovery time is minimal for most Energy Devices. You may experience some temporary redness, swelling, or mild discomfort following the treatment, which typically resolves within a few days. Dr. McGee will provide specific aftercare instructions to optimize your results, such as applying sunscreen daily and avoiding sun exposure.
