We use the Vivace device for all of our RF microneedling procedures. When the pins of this device enter the skin, they transmit radiofrequency energy through multiple levels of the skin. Through this process, the skin receives both a controlled physical injury, (as you do with all microneedling devices), plus the added effect of heat. This dual effect in multiple layers of the skin creates dramatic collagen production and skin tightening.
The epidermis is very prone to pigmentation problems if not protected. Knowing this, we prefer RF microneedling which uses coated needles that protect the top layer of skin (epidermis) from heat injury. As a result, our process eliminates the risk of pigmentation or discoloration. Lasers, however, cannot avoid the top layer of skin. This is why laser treatments are riskier for tan or dark skin. RF microneedling, on the other hand, is safe and effective for any skin color.
