Microneedling Vs. Microneedling with RF

At Levy Dermatology, we offer both microneedling with SkinPen® and Vivace™ RF Microneedling depending on each patient’s individual needs. Both procedures can produce exceptional results, and each has unique benefits. Let’s take a look at some of the key differences between the two to jump-start the decision-making process about which might be best for you.

Microneedling is a highly sought-after procedure for many patients battling a variety of skin conditions. The procedure has undergone advancements over the past decade that allow patients to achieve better, more dramatic results with less discomfort or downtime. Men and women can get long-lasting results with a simple in-office visit.

Vivace Microneedling Memphis

Microneedling with SkinPen®

SkinPen® is a state-of-the-art microneedling device that creates tiny micro-injuries at precise depths for optimal efficacy. The procedure helps reduce the appearance of visible signs of aging including;

  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation Problems
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Acne Scars
  • Sun Spots
  • Overall Texture & Tone

Microneedling with SkinPen® produces younger, healthier-looking skin with just one session. Moderate to severe aesthetic concerns may take a series of treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. Final results can be seen several weeks after your final SkinPen® treatment. Touch-up appointments are safe and effective as needed.

Vivace™ RF Microneedling

Like SkinPen®, Microneedling with the Vivace™ system can help address most common aesthetic concerns. However, patients get the added benefit of advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology. Vivace™ delivers thermal energy to deeper tissue causing it to contract. The procedure triggers your body to produce additional collagen and elastin for skin tightening effects.

Patients can achieve instantly tighter, firmer-looking skin with Vivace™ RF microneedling. A smoother complexion can be seen within several days with gradual improvement over the course of several weeks.

Because Vivace™ stimulates your body’s self-healing process, patients can expect faster healing times than the traditional microneedling treatments of the past. Side effects are minimal with Vivace™ RF microneedling, and most patients can return to their normal routine within just 24-hours.

“We love coming to see Dr. Levy and his staff! They are the best!”

PRP Infusions with Microneedling Treatments

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) serums can be added to any of our microneedling treatments for enhanced results. The process only takes a couple of extra steps including a simple blood draw. Once prepared, the PRP serum is applied topically to freshly treated skin. Microneedling allows the PRP solution to penetrate to the lower layers of dermis for long-term benefits.

What’s Right for You?

Both SkinPen® and Vivace™ can be beneficial to patients struggling with early-on signs of aging. Microneedling treatments are safe and effective for almost all skin types, textures, and tones. Patients can enjoy long-lasting results with a short, in-office procedure. Downtime with either procedure is minimal allowing you to quickly get back to your day-to-day routine.

If you’re bothered by mild to moderate signs of aging or have sun-damaged skin, SkinPen® might be right for you. However, if lax skin or scar reduction is your primary concern, Vivace™ RF microneedling is probably your best option. The only real way to determine which procedure will produce the best results is through an in-person consultation.
