SkinPen Microneedling for Complexion Correction

SkinPen is the first microneedling device approved by the FDA for the correction of multiple complexion issues, including:

The SkinPen is a handheld device that contains several tiny needle tips at one end. This end of the device is placed on the targeted treatment area and slowly brushed along the skin, allowing the needle tips to quickly penetrate the dermal tissue.

This penetration has a purpose: it triggers the body’s collagen and elastin production, which are the building blocks for younger, healthier-looking skin. What’s more, this surge in production creates a rapid cellular turnover, which helps fade the appearance of multiple skin issues.

SkinPen microneedling is a good choice for you if you’re looking to rejuvenate your skin tone, as well as fade aging symptoms, hyperpigmentation, facial scarring, and more.

Vivace RF Microneedling for Skin-Tightening Benefits

If it’s skin-tightening results you’re after, then it’s time to introduce yourself to Vivace RF microneedling. This device resembles SkinPen technology in that it has several needle tips at one end, but with one major difference – the device also emits radiofrequency energy to tighten sagging skin.

This energy penetrates the dermal tissue to the subdermal layer, where it heats and tightens the foundational tissue to produce real-time tightening results on the skin’s surface.

This benefit is combined with the other benefits of microneedling, meaning Vivace RF microneedling is a good choice for you if you want to tighten and tone skin while rejuvenating and treating your biggest complexion issues.

If you’re looking for another tried and true radiofrequency treatment with microneedling, we also offer Morpheus8 treatments. Morpheus8 utilizes fractionated energy along with radiofrequency and microneedling in order to tighten the skin and give a youthful complexion. In some cases, Morpheus8 is actually more advanced than Vivace and can provide even more dramatic results.
