Microneedling for Facial Rejuvenation


As we get older, bothersome signs of aging, sun-damage, and lifestyle habits such as smoking begin to creep up on us. These visible aesthetic concerns can negatively affect our self-image and how others perceive us. But, there’s a new non-surgical solution for men and women who want to achieve younger, healthier-looking skin.

It’s called SkinPen®, and can be done in a simple in-office visit without the scars, side effects or downtime associated with more invasive procedures.

Vivace™ RF Microneedling

Many men and women find themselves unhappy with their facial appearance due to visible signs of sun damage or aging. However, there is a highly-effective non-surgical solution for patients seeking total skin rejuvenation. It’s called Vivace™ RF Microneedling, and it’s changing the way we think about skincare.

How Does It Work?

SkinPen® is the first cleared microneedling pen on the market. It’s a minimally-invasive procedure that precisely targets problem areas by stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Through the use of micro-injuries, SkinPen® uses the body’s healing response to remodel collagen and elastin, the skin’s most important support structure. This renews skin’s firmness, smoothness, and softness for a younger appearance.

SkinPen® can address common skin conditions including; large pore size, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and overall tone and texture.

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) with microneedling has become a highly popular skin rejuvenation procedure for many patients. PRP is a regenerative medicine that uses your own enriched plasma to improve skin health.

After a simple blood draw, platelets are separated while you wait. Your specialist will re-insert the growth factors, platelets, and stem cells into predetermined treatment areas. The enriched plasma helps to repair and build new skin cells. Meanwhile, the SkinPen® makes microchannels under the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Although most patients opt to have the procedure done on their face or neck, SkinPen® can also be done anywhere on the body such as the chest or hands.

Am I A Good Candidate?

SkinPen® is safe and effective for all skin types from light to dark. The device utilizes a single-use micro-needle attachment that can be adjusted to any skin thickness or type. The revolutionary device allows us to give every patient the best possible outcome with the least amount of recovery time.

What Is The Treatment Like?

Your trained SkinPen® technician will use the handpiece to correct a wide variety of cosmetic concerns in as little as 30-minutes. Topical anesthetic is applied to make you as comfortable as possible, and then the SkinPen® is passed over your skin to create the channels that prompt renewal. SkinPen® treatments are spaced between four and six weeks apart. Once desired results are achieved, it’s safe to have touch-up treatments as needed.

Is There Any Down Time?

SkinPen® is a minimally-invasive procedure with very little side effects. You may experience redness or tenderness (similar to a sunburn) after your treatment. Typically, side effects should subside within a few days. It’s recommended you consistently apply sunscreen before venturing outdoors following your treatment.

What Results Will I See?

Immediately following your SkinPen® treatment, you’ll notice a smoother, more radiant complexion. Continued improvement will gradually occur as collagen production renews deeper layers of tissue leaving you with lasting results. Multiple sessions may be necessary to meet your ultimate goals depending on the severity of your condition.

How Does It Work?

Vivace™ works similar to that of traditional microneedling techniques with a few added bonuses. A specialized handheld device is used to create tiny micro-channels to the superficial layers of skin. These channels allow Vivace™ to deliver advanced radiofrequency (RF) and LED light therapy to the lower layers of skin for deep dermal rejuvenation.

Vivace™ RF Microneedling triggers the body’s self-healing process causing it to produce higher levels of collagen and elastin. Rapid cellular turnover occurs, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, sun spots, and other complexion issues.

Microneedling with Vivace™ allows for ideal treatment precision. Sessions are customized to suit the patient’s individual needs and are adjusted accordingly throughout the procedure. Vivace™ uses RF energy to heat skin evenly while insulated gold-set microneedles work to correct problem areas for nearly all skin types, textures, and tones. Although Vivace™ RF Microneedling is primarily used to correct problem areas on the face, it can safely be performed throughout the body. Other treatment areas may include the neck, chest, and hands.

Vivace™ RF Microneedling can treat quite a few different skin conditions, including:

  • aging skin
  • acne scars
  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • pigmentation issues
  • redness
  • brown spots
  • sun spots
  • kin laxity
  • stretch marks
  • much more
Am I A Good Candidate?

Vivace™ RF Microneedling is effective for anyone, regardless of Fitzpatrick skin type. People with infections in the treatment area should postpone treatment until the infection is cleared up. Speak to a Levy Dermatology specialist to get started.

What Is The Treatment Like?

Your Vivace™ RF Microneedling session begins with the application of topical numbing cream for maximum comfort for patients with sensitive skin. Then your Levy Dermatology provider passes the handpiece over your skin to create the micro-channels and deliver the RF energy and LED light. Your appointment will last around 30-45 minutes for any anesthetic cream to be effective, then an additional 45 minutes for the Vivace™ RF Microneedling process. You’re free to resume your daily activities right away, and sunscreen is recommended for any time spent outdoors.

Is There Any Down Time?

Side effects and downtime are minimal thanks to Vivace™ gold-set insulated microneedles. The procedure is virtually painless and has a reduced risk of redness, hot spots, burning, or discomfort than traditional microneedling.

What Results Will I See?

Most patients report smoother, younger-looking skin after just one session. Vivace™ repairs damaged skin much faster than traditional microneedling, which can take 3-8 sessions to see optimal results. Patients can often get the results they want with just 6 sessions. Vivace™ RF Microneedling can be paired with PRP therapy or HA growth factor serums for enhanced results.

Vivace™ uses RF wavelengths for one-of-a-kind skin tightening qualities for patients concerned with loose or sagging skin. There are also insulated and non-insulated tips so they can treat any skin type. Watch visible signs of aging or sun damage gradually fade away with each consecutive treatment.
