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.

RF Microneedling FAQ

How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Every patient is different; some individuals may want more sessions than others. We will take the time to thoroughly assess your skin and consider your needs and goals to decide the appropriate number of sessions for you. Usually, many patients receive 3 – 4 procedures spaced about a month apart.

Does RF microneedling hurt?
After a topical numbing cream is applied to the target area, most patients experience minimal pain during treatment. Throughout the procedure, we will ask you to make sure you're comfortable.

Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?

In your consultation, we will ask about all your concerns and goals before recommending RF microneedling and any complementary treatments.
