Can RF Microneedling Treatments Help Me Achieve Firm and Youthful Skin?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production — the building blocks of firm and youthful-looking skin. This advanced technology combines traditional microneedling with the power of RF energy for results that look and feel amazing.
Bodian Dermatology and Medical Day Spa proudly offers procedures that manage a wide range of common concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration, and uneven skin texture. Here, Dr. Adam B. Bodian explores the many benefits of Vivace RF microneedling and how it works in Great Neck, NY. Call now to book an assessment and find out if this form of skin rejuvenation is right for your needs.
All about RF microneedling
Traditional microneedling uses tiny needles to create small but controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate your natural healing response, leading to an increase in collagen and elastin. Vivace RF microneedling takes this process a step further. During treatment, we administer radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers using 36 gold-tip needles. This enhances the effects of microneedling, leading to even more dramatic results.
Am I a candidate for RF microneedling?
Radiofrequency microneedling is suitable for most people as long as they have generally healthy skin and are not pregnant or nursing. It is beneficial for people with fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and age spots. Treatment can be applied in various areas like the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Before undergoing this procedure at Bodian Dermatology and Medical Day Spa, our qualified providers will perform an assessment to determine if RF microneedling is right for your needs and skin type. We also discuss your medical history, current medications, and any previous cosmetic procedures. Your health is our top priority, and Dr. Bodian will only proceed with treatment if it is deemed safe.
What happens during a skin rejuvenation session
Dr. Bodian carries out Vivace radiofrequency microneedling in the comfort of our office in Great Neck, NY. The procedure takes about an hour, based on the size of the treatment area. We use a robotically controlled handpiece containing tiny needles, and they penetrate the skin at specific depths.
Once the procedure is complete, you may experience some redness and swelling, which should subside within a few days. You can resume normal activities after treatment, but we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and sun exposure for a short period. Most patients require a series of Vivace sessions for optimal results.
When to expect results from RF microneedling
The results of Vivace RF microneedling are not immediate. This is because it takes time for the skin to heal and for collagen and elastin production to increase. Most patients start to notice firmer and more youthful-looking skin within a few weeks. Remember to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by our team and keep up with your recommended skin care routine for long-lasting results.
