Do you suffer from acne scars? The scars can impact your self-esteem and make you dread going out in public. Acne scars can appear as deep pits in your skin, which are caused by damage to the underlying collagen from chronic inflammation. Vivace RF microneedling treatments can reduce the appearance of acne scars substantially by encouraging healthy collagen production. At Bodian Dermatology and Medical Day Spa, Dr. Adam B. Bodian offers RF microneedling treatments in Great Neck, NY. If you want to smooth away acne scars and achieve smoother skin, schedule a consultation to discuss the procedure. Dr. Bodian will evaluate your skin and listen to your goals to determine if Vivace RF microneedling is the right choice.

Is RF microneedling right for you?

Are you over 40 years old and started to notice wrinkles, age spots, discolorations, or other imperfections? Do you have acne scars? Vivace RF microneedling might be ideal for your needs.

The RF microneedling procedure delivers radiofrequency (RF) via 36 gold tip needles on a robotically controlled handpiece. The RF-generated heat stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen to smooth away acne scars, get rid of wrinkles, and tighten skin. You can even combine Vivace RF microneedling treatments with PRP for greater results.

The benefits of RF microneedling include:

  • Firmer skin
  • Refreshed appearance
  • Smoother texture
  • Fewer skin irregularities, such as discolorations and blood vessels
  • Removal of sun damage or age spots
  • Younger-appearing skin
  • Scar appearance reduction

All about Vivace RF microneedling

The Vivace RF microneedling handheld device delivers radiofrequency via 36 gold tip needles. The device is guided across your skin via a robotically controlled handpiece. The RF exits the needle tips to heat the skin and promote more enhanced results. The minimally invasive procedure leaves minor injuries to the skin. As the small injuries heal, new skin forms and collagen formation is activated. Your skin’s surface will appear smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated.

Dr. Bodian will perform Vivace RF microneedling at Bodian Dermatology and Medical Day Spa in Great Neck, NY. Prior to undergoing the cosmetic procedure, a numbing cream is applied to your skin’s surface to reduce discomfort during treatment. The Vivace RF microneedling device glides across your skin. The technique might be repeated to achieve even greater results.

What to expect after Vivace RF microneedling

You will have small pinpoint scabs after the procedure, which will heal within 24 – 72 hours. The scabs will shed as your skin’s natural healing takes over. It takes about 3 – 4 weeks to start experiencing optimal results. Normally, Dr. Bodian will recommend a few Vivace RF microneedling treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart to achieve maximum results, especially for acne scarring.

Vivace RF microneedling can reduce the appearance of acne scars, smooth away wrinkles, and tighten skin. The skin rejuvenation procedure is only minimally invasive, which makes it an excellent option for many patients.
