RF Microneedling (Vivace, Morpheus8) Beverly Hills

RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. It enhances the tone and texture of the skin, reducing the appearance of early signs of aging, like fine lines and sagging. RF Microneedling effectively treats acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). The treatment leaves patients with firmer, more even-toned skin that looks more youthful and radiant.

Vivace® and Morpheus8 combine microneedling with radiofrequency energy to remodel and contour the face and body. They are fractional therapies that stimulate collagen production and provide dramatic results with minimal downtime. The results are gradual over 1-3 months and continue to improve over time with multiple treatments as necessary.

What is Microneedling RF (Vivace, Morpheus8)?

Microneedling RF is a cosmetic procedure that uses fine needles transmitting radiofrequency waves to create micro-wounds in the skin. This treatment generates the production of new capillaries, elastin, and collagen, resulting in thicker and smoother skin.

Vivace Microneedling RF is a treatment approach that combines radiofrequency microneedling technology with a specialized treatment serum and cooling peptide mask. This treatment technique provides patients with more enhanced, natural-looking results that target wrinkles, sagging skin, and fine lines in the face, neck, and hands.

The Morpheus8 Microneedling Fractional RF treatment utilizes longer needles to deliver unmatched treatment depths. It functions via subdermal adipose remodeling, penetrating deep into the skin and superficial tissues to contour and remodel challenging treatment areas while improving overall skin health. It is ideal for the face, neck, abdomen, and other body parts. You can combine this treatment with plasma-rich platelets or exosomes for superior results.

Microneedling RF Reviews

I’ve just finished my 9th Vivace treatment and I feel like I look 10 years younger! Alexia is AMAZING! She has changed my skin tone, texture, and I have no more saggy skin around my cheeks. This is the best micro needling treatment out there! I love this better than any laser- it has the best numbing cream and no pain at all!!! The minute you finish you are literally glowing! (A little red for like an hour or 2 but my skin feels tighter immediately!!!)
