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.

"Went in to have a second Breast Augmentation surgery by Dr Nuveen after almost 20 years had my implants switched out not to mention my old implants had held up fairly well main reason for the switch was, I wanted more volume well my experience was just a great as the first time the staff was very attentive and friendly even though I had had this surgery before it was still a little nerve racking staff was very helpful to help relax and make me comfortable surgery was what seemed to be quick and easy I had very little pain and was up and walking within the hour. Would most definitely recommend Dr Nuveen And his amazing staff for any cosmetic procedure very friend and professional."- M.S. / Google / Jun 28, 2022

Definitely would recommend going here! Can’t wait to see my results"- T.N. / Google / Jun 28, 2022
"I cant express in words how absolutely in love with my results and the care I received throughout the entire process! After researching several other doctors and a having a few other consultations with other Doctors, I was blown away by the entire staff and Dr.Nuveen's guidance to achieving the results I wanted. Literally all of the staff was amazing in answering any/all questions I had and did an amazing job with communication especially since I was an out of town patient. I felt like I was actually a "cared about patient" than just another dollar sign. I whole heartedly recommend them and hope that this review helps anyone considering this amazing staff and facility! Thank you isnt enough for such amazing results and bringing me so much more confidence. Forever grateful!"- B.W. / Google / Jun 04, 2022
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.
