What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Dr. Adam Bodian likes to call the Vivace procedure "microneedling on steroids". The Vivace delivers the most precise , deep and pain-free microneedling experience as the 36 gold-tip needles are guided into the skin with a robotically controlled handpiece. This, plus the even delivery of radio frequency (RF) through the needle tips, tightens skin and eliminates discomfort. The results are both immediate and improve over time with multiple treatments. RF provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Great for acne scars too. Vivace may be combined with PRP for more powerful results We encourage you to schedule your RF microneedling consultation at our Great Neck, NY office.

Our RF Microneedling Technique
Vivace, RF microneedling procedure is quite straightforward. The handheld device delivers the most precise microneedling experience as the 36 gold-tip needles are guided into the skin with a robotically controlled handpiece. This, plus the even delivery of radio frequency (RF) through the needle tips, tightens skin and eliminates discomfort. New skin forms as the skin heals, leaving the top layer feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and more refreshed.
What to Expect with RF Microneedling
Your microneedling session will be performed inside the Bodian Dermatology facility with the use of numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. During your appointment, the Vivace handheld device will glide over the chosen area, repeating the technique until the desired outcome has been reached. You should anticipate small pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours post-treatment, which will naturally shed when the inherent skin has healed. Results become noticeable as the skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks following a microneedling with RF treatment. Optimal results generally need a few treatments scheduled 3 – 4 weeks apart.
Smoother, Younger Skin
If you're looking to reduce the appearance of aging or sun-damaged skin, as well as reduce acne scars, wrinkles, or laxity, RF microneedling is a great treatment with proven outcomes. Mixing radiofrequency skin tightening and microneedling, this outstanding skin rejuvenation procedure has grown in popularity and is a highly sought after, minimally invasive treatment for our Great Neck, NY patients.
