RF Microneedling vs. Traditional Microneedling

By Mark Ginella

A revolutionary microneedling treatment bypasses the downtime and boosts the benefits.

You’ve probably heard of microneedling. It’s a popular and effective treatment that has been used to address a plethora of skin concerns from wrinkles to acne scarring to lax skin.But you may have also heard that microneedling can tear the skin, leading to an uncomfortable and even bloody mess followed by recovery time for the patient’s skin to heal.

But what if you could greatly enhance the outcome of microneedling while adding power and eliminating the tearing and pulling for the skin? Now you can. ..

Shrink Pores this Summer with RF Microneedling

Summer’s warm temperatures can wreak havoc on your skin. From sweating to pore-clogging products and makeup, you might notice skin that is less clear and appears to shine rather than glow. And as you pile on the remedies, you enter a vicious cycle of more issues and more topical cures. Instead of trying to fix this problem with temporary topical solutions, you can improve your skin from below with a pore-minimizing treatment and actually shrink your pores so that your summer skin will soon be described with positive words like dewy and luminous.

An advanced concept in skin rejuvenation, RF Microneedling, like the new Vivace system, combines radio frequency energy – that’s the RF part – with microneedling to tighten and tone skin with the benefit of making pores smaller. With smaller pores, skin appears firmer, and you’ll need less product to keep it that way. Not only is pore-minimizing RF Microneedling safe to perform during summer, unlike many skin treatments that require you to stay out of the sun, it’s also safe and effective for all skin types.  ..

Vivace (vee-vá-chay) Means Microneedling for the 21st Century

Original Article By Radiance Medspa Staff | When microneedling came on the scene in the mid-1990s, it seemed like the answer to boosting collagen production in order to improve the skin and fix everything from wrinkles to scars. And this treatment, which consisted of a technician using a hand-held pen or roller to puncture the skin with fine needles, was generally highly effective. By slightly damaging the outer layers of the skin, microneedling caused the body’s own healing mechanisms to kick in, which led to increased collagen production and the smoothing over of wrinkles and blemishes on the surface.

In the hands of an experienced, careful technician, a series of microneedling treatments achieved very positive results. But the nature of the microneedling pens and rollers meant that consistency was difficult, and the skin could be torn or snagged. Puncturing the skin with even fine needles could also be uncomfortable – read painful – and messy.  ..
