In recent years, the face of cosmetic dermatology has changed quite a bit. First, we had lasers, then we had microneedling, then we had radiofrequency (RF), and now we have microneedling and RF together. The developments in aesthetic medicine occur so quickly it can be hard to keep up. We’re here to help you find your way. Here, we want to discuss the various reasons why more people are seeking RF microneedling.
In our Westport dermatology office, we utilize the Vivace™ Fractional Microneedling RF system. This FDA-approved device has demonstrated safety and efficiency in the correction of tissue laxity, blemishes, stretch marks, scars, fine lines, and overall skin tone and texture. Let’s break down the benefits even further.
- Results appear quickly. The Vivace system affects the skin with three unique modalities. First, the integration of radio frequency into the microneedling action intensifies the collagen induction that leads to tighter, firmer skin. Second, healing time is expedited through the implementation of LED light. Finally, the gold-tipped microneedles penetrate deeper layers of the epidermis to create receptivity to nourishing serums that promote tissue regeneration.
- There is no downtime. Microneedling does create tiny channels in the epidermis. However, these channels are so small that they begin to heal right away. Thanks to the LED light and nourishing serums applied to the skin, redness, and swelling are nearly imperceptible. By the day after treatment, the skin looks radiant and smooth. Of course, proper skin care and sun protection are necessary to promote optimal regeneration.
- Skin tightening effects are maximized. Some of the concerning effects of aging include deepening creases around the nose and mouth and sagging along the jawline. The inclusion of radiofrequency in the Vivace microneedling technique affects deeper tissue where collagen lies. Protein fibers contract in response to RF energy, leading to noticeably tighter skin around the chin, cheeks, and eyes.
- RF microneedling is suitable for nearly all skin types. Historically, people with darker skin have been excluded from professional beauty treatments. This is because many devices and techniques affect the epidermis by removing layers of skin cells. This can lead to hyperpigmentation. Vivace’s RF energy prompts natural tissue regeneration without any resurfacing, making the technique ideal for most adults.
