What Skin Conditions Can Be Treated with Microneedling?

Gorgeous glowing skin. It’s the hallmark of youth and vitality. But, as we get older, our skin begins to lose elasticity, fine lines turn into wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin becomes all too familiar. The good news is, there’s a revolutionary non-surgical solution for men and women seeking to reverse mild to moderate signs of aging.

At Dermatology Associates of Plymouth Meeting, we’re taking microneedling to the next level. Vivace RF Microneedling is an FDA-approved device that combines the impressive powers of microneedling with radiofrequency technology. The procedure provides exceptional results and maintains an extremely high patient satisfaction rate among our clients.

Smooth, luxurious skin with no downtime? It’s no wonder that Vivace has a whopping 94% “Worth It!” rating on RealSelf.

The treatment is highly-individualized and is both safe and effective for all skin types and tones. Popular treatment areas include; face, neck, chest, and hands. However, Vivace can safely treat just about any area of the body that’s showing visible signs of aging.

Vivace RF Microneedling helps improve overall skin texture while addressing a multitude of skin conditions such as;

  • Skin Laxity
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Stretch Marks
  • Sun Damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne Scars

The quick, 30-60 minute in-office treatment can also help your body absorb beneficial skincare products. Talk to your board-certified dermatologist about boosting the effects of your microneedling treatment with our line of regenerative Cosmeceuticals. For even more dramatic results, consider adding on a moisturizing HydraFacial®.

The Vivace procedure is minimally-invasive and is typically well tolerated among patients. Prior to your treatment, your practitioner will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure optimal comfort levels. The Vivace handpiece delivers controlled micro-punctures to the topmost layers of skin allowing for deep radiofrequency penetration.

Combining microneedling and RF technology stimulates your body’s natural healing process which in turn contracts skin and increases collagen production.

There is little to no downtime associated with your Vivace treatment. Immediately following your procedure, you may experience slight redness or swelling. In most cases, side effects are minimal and subside within just a few hours. One of the great things we love about Vivace is that it can safely be performed all year round -even the summer!

Over the course of 1-3 weeks, you’ll see noticeable changes to your overall skin tone and texture. You’ll benefit from a smooth, glowing complexion, and watch fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation issues fade away. Depending on the severity of your skin condition, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve an optimal outcome.
