SkinPen® is a revolutionary microneedling device that creates tiny micro-channels to the superficial layers of skin. The minimally-invasive treatment triggers the skin’s natural regenerative processes as well as long-term collagen production. Treatments are generally quick, easy, and don’t require any downtime.
Many SkinPen® patients see a significant improvement to their overall texture and tone immediately following treatment. The number of sessions needed to achieve an optimal outcome depends on your concerns and goals. However, 2-4 treatments are generally able to address most textural irregularities.
Vivace™ RF Microneedling
Vivace™ is a unique microneedling procedure that uses radiofrequency wavelengths for additional skin tightening effects. Patients with moderate skin laxity can benefit from Vivace™ RF microneedling procedures. Vivace™ effectively repairs damaged skin caused by sun damage or the natural aging process.
You’ll likely be able to see some immediate improvement after radiofrequency microneedling. However, an optimal outcome typically isn’t noticeable until 1-2 weeks post-treatment. Patients can expect to get the results they want with 3-6 Vivace™ treatments. Your Levy Dermatology Provider can assess your concerns and determine the number of sessions you’ll need.
Microneedling with PRP
Many patients opt to add PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) to their microneedling treatment for enhanced results. PRP is packed full of skin-healthy platelets, stem cells, and other growth factors that are known to repair damaged skin. Adding topical PRP serum to your treatment may be worth considering if you’d like better results with fewer treatments.
