Anti-aging treatments are always evolving, with new procedures and technologies popping up all the time. One that is especially growing in popularity is known as microneedling, which involves creating micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production and make your skin appear more refreshed. Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling takes this process a step further for even more, longer lasting, skin rejuvenation. Best of all, Dr. Bodian adds PRP for even greater results.


Now, you can address common skin issues like fine lines, discoloration, age spots, and other skin irregularities caused by age and sun exposure. Learn about advanced Vivace treatment by calling Bodian Dermatology for an anti-aging appointment in Great Neck, NY. Dr. Adam B. Bodian is excited to provide the gorgeous outcomes you want. 

What's causing your skin problems? 

Our skin thins and loses some elasticity and firmness over time due to collagen loss. This is normal, but it can cause embarrassment for people who are more aware of their skin's appearance. Oftentimes, you'll see fine lines, hyperpigmentation, rough skin texture, and acne scars. Radiofrequency microneedling is a great solution for these issues, as it can improve a wide range of problems at the same time. 

How does microneedling improve your skin? 

Vivace, Radio Frequency Microneedling at Bodian Dermatology involves a handheld device with 36 gold-tip needles that are robotically guided into the skin in a precise manner. As the needles are at the exact controlled depth, radio frequency is evenly delivered into your skin.  This perfect combination, stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter younger-looking skin.   About 3 – 4 weeks after your Vivace radio frequency microneedling session, you should notice brighter and smoother skin that feels more refreshed.  Dr. Bodian gets his best results with 3-6 treatment sessions.

What about RF energy? 

As we mentioned, Vivace treatment with RF energy takes traditional microneedling and makes your results more dramatic optimal results. When radiofrequency energy is delivered through the tips of the needles, it creates a "heating" effect that causes the skin to tighten, treating problems associated with loose skin and wrinkles. The great news is that radiofrequency microneedling is not hot enough or invasive enough to cause any pain. You will feel it working, but most people aren't bothered by the skin rejuvenation process.
