Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

Vivace Microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) is FDA-cleared to non-surgically rejuvenate the skin by stimulating the body’s natural healing process and initiating the production of new collagen within the tissue. When the microneedle tip of the Vivace system perforates the superficial layer of skin, radiofrequency energy is transmitted through the needles to heat the deeper tissue. The skin reacts by working to repair the tissue through the formation of new elastin and collagen fibers, which gradually give the skin a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Immediately following treatment, the skin easily absorbs specialized serums that can further improve skin quality. We are excited to offer skin rejuvenation treatment with the innovative Vivace RF Microneedling system. Vivace can be an ideal option for patients who desire smoother, tighter, more elastic skin, along with a reduction in the prominence of wrinkles, scarring, pores, and stretch marks.

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin.

In our practice, we use the SkinPen Precision system, in conjunction with topical platelet rich plasma (PRP) for facial rejuvenation.

SkinPen, the only FDA cleared microneedling device in the U.S. contains fine needles that are used to puncture the skin at various depths to create a controlled injury. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.

When using microneedling + PRP for skin rejuvenation, patients report improvements in fine lines, skin texture, hydration, radiance, and acne/surgical scarring.

While improvements are seen with one treatment, most patients benefit from a series of three treatments spaced one month apart.
