About RF Microneedling
Oklahoma City, OK cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik J. Nuveen, and Dr. Courtney Caplin use a special skin rejuvenation approach that creates beautiful results for our patients with a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF laser treatments have been around for many years and are well-known in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This particular type of laser treatment uses heat to encourage the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. This therapy can be used in conjunction with microneedling to optimize the results. At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, we often add this new advancement to our Oklahoma City, OK patients' skin treatment plans to generate firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion. Our cosmetic surgery office is proud to offer Vivace RF microneedling to our collection of nonsurgical skin rejuvenation options.

"I was nervous for my consultation but they made me feel very comfortable. All of my questions were answered and I feel confident about my choice in implants! I’m excited for my surgery!"- L.H. / Google / May 20, 2023
"Dr. Courtney Caplin is truly amazing and has so much talent! CSA was the third cosmetic surgery facility I received a consult from as I had done extensive research on procedures and doctors in the OKC area and out of state. The entire process was so simple, I shared my insecurities with my consult nurse and what my goals were. She was very honest and gave me so much feedback, she was very attentive and truly listened to what I wanted. She made me feel so comfortable the entire time. I was given so much information and was sent home with information on their surgeons, I hands down chose Dr. Courtney, her credentials and stats are top notch and not to mention her belly buttons are the cutest!! I was scheduled within 8 weeks from my consult. CSA has many financing options and they were all very easy. Day of surgery I was very nervous, but the moment I went back everyone on my surgical team made me feel at ease. Recovery was so much easier than I expected, I had a full tummy tuck with a muscle repair and liposuction. The worst part was my back pain from being hunched over. During my recovery, my body rejected some of my sutures and naturally, I was freaking out, but CSA was incredible giving me proper wound care instructions and seeing my every week until I was over the hump of healing. Let me tell you, not all plastic surgeons are like that and I speak from experience from my breast reduction. I am about 15 weeks post op and I love my results already and wouldn’t change a thing. Their slogan of “Confidence is priceless”, couldn’t be more accurate. Thank you again Dr Courtney, you’ve given me so much!!!"- K.H. / Google / May 11, 2023
"Trading with a trusted account manager is what can make your dreams come through. Mrs.Debra Gary has the best trading strategies to win. I never believed in any post recommending online trading until I gave it a try and the outcome was great for me. Making $10,500 out of $1000 was a whole lot of profit for me. Thank me later he is a nice and calm trader I never thought online trade could be so helpful you can contact him via; email:[email protected] Whatsapp: +12522852775"- K.F. / Facebook / Apr 12, 2023
"I was surprised how quickly they could take me on as a patient. Financing the operation was a simple process. The surgery went well and the result looks nice, even better than I had imagined. I have a lower than average tolerance for pain and ended up needing more pain medication than is normally given for this procedure. Dr. Naveen was able to relieve my pain without having prescribe narcotics. I can return to work soon and I'm feeling so much more comfortable in my own skin and I don't have to focus on my loose, flabby areas anymore. It's hard to describe what a relief having this surgery is. Eventhough there is some pain involved, it was well worth it. Can't thank Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates enough for putting up with me. thank you! I'm very grateful!"- K.E. / Google / Apr 06, 2023
"From the moment I walked in and started my consultation, I felt so comfortable. Every single staff member I spoke to was kind and attentive. A breast augmentation consult has the potential to be a little awkward (so I experienced at a previous establishment), but not at CSA. I was able to comfortably discuss and show the surgeon and nurse what I wanted to achieve and ask all the questions. I schedule my surgery that day. Sarah, helped with the financing consult and was beyond supportive. Not only did she provide support before but evens two weeks post op she is answering all my questions. She is a truly wonderful person who was meant for that job and goes above and beyond. I chose Dr. kaplin to do my surgery and met with her right before because I had a change of mind and wanted to increase my implant size last minute. She was very open and helpful with this. I took in her advice and I was able to decide on what larger implant I wanted. She never made me feel like a pain and listened to what I wanted and gave me what I wanted. Looked through photos with me and discusses options. Post op, my results I am beyond happy with! It has been two weeks post op and I don’t have a single regret! There were so many Cheerful and great ladies, I can’t even name them all. Thank you so much CSA!"- C.R. / Google / Mar 14, 2023
If you are 40 years of age or older and are starting to notice age spots, discoloration, smile lines, and other skin flaws (that can come with age and sun exposure), RF microneedling could be the ideal treatment for you. RF microneedling is a great choice if you wish to:
- Tighten the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Boost skin texture, tone, and pigment
- Heal skin irregularities, such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Reduce the look of age spots and sun damage
- Repair acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look
It first helps to understand what is microneedling. This popular nonsurgical skin treatment uses a handheld device that has numerous tiny needles attached to the end. The microneedling instrument is gently and precisely rolled across the skin to create tiny puncture holes, which makes micro-injuries to the skin that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. During this process, new skin grows as the punctured skin begins to heal. This leaves the skin's surface looking and feeling healthier, smoother, and rejuvenated. The microneedling technique is often referred to as collagen induction therapy. Although this process is effective even if performed on its own, combining this innovative method with radiofrequency technology, such as Vivace RF, has enabled our Oklahoma City cosmetic surgery practice to maximize the outcomes for patients.
The Vivace system uses a special transmitter that emits radiofrequency energy, providing distinct bursts of RF energy through the collection of sterile micro-needles. The RF power is delivered via the needles, which concurrently punctures your skin and returns the electrodes into the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels, which offer cumulative and continuing results.
What to Expect
Your RF microneedling session will take place inside the Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates' office, employing a numbing cream to make sure any discomfort is minimized. During your appointment, the handheld device will slowly glide across the desired area, repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. You should expect small pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours afterward, which will naturally shed when the underlying micro-injuries have healed. Results become visible as skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks after a microneedling with RF session. Optimal results usually necessitate 3 – 4 treatments at 3 – 4 weeks apart.
Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is RF?
Radiofrequency provides energy heat that stimulates collagen production under the skin, which has been found to lead to firmer, younger-looking skin. Combined with the advanced method of microneedling, patients can experience optimal skin rejuvenating results.
What does it feel like?
Once we apply a numbing ointment to your skin, the Vivace treatment does not result in major discomfort. Most patients report that it feels like light pressure to the face with an occasional light sting that doesn't hurt.
How many treatments will I need?
During your consultation, we will provide a thorough skin assessment. Each patient is unique and some may require more treatment sessions to reach the desired result. On average, most of our patients receive 3 – 4 RF microneedling treatments spaced about one month apart.
RF microneedling is safe and effective for most skin types, including tanned and darker skin. In addition, it can be used on almost any area of the face or body. This skin rejuvenation treatment offers outstanding results with minimal downtime compared to surgical treatment. Everyone is unique, but the collagen and elastin produced with this procedure are your own and continues to regenerate and accelerate over the next several months as results improve over time.
This treatment is a custom procedure that we will craft specifically for your skin type, needs, and goals. We understand that every patient is different, and thus, during your private consultation, we will take the necessary time to listen to your specific concerns to help you achieve your cosmetic goals safely and effectively.
