Let’s face it, we want to look our best at any age – not over-filled and over-stretched – just natural! We want to age gracefully, beautifully, and elegantly, but inevitably, fine lines and wrinkles set in, and now a simple, minimally-invasive treatment will address those concerns and have you out to dinner that same night. At Skin Boutique, we strive to provide our patients in Birmingham, MI, and the Metro Detroit area with RF Microneedling as an incredible way to not only tighten up your skin but stimulate collagen production as well. To learn more about the treatment, please keep reading below.
Often referred to as collagen induction therapy (CIT), Microneedling is a very minimal invasive treatment that uses an instrument containing tiny needles on the end that are gently rolled against your skin to puncture and create micro-injuries, which “disrupts” the tissues and stimulates new collagen production. Your new skin will grow as your skin heals, leaving the surface feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and more rejuvenated.
With Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling, the technique is the same, except this specific treatment, uses heat to promote collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. The handheld applicator provides brief pulses of RF energy through a collection of many sterile, gold-plated microneedles, which allows it to reach the deeper layer.
It’s the newest generation of radio frequency microneedling, and The Vivace is FDA-cleared for your safety. This minimally-invasive treatment stimulates the natural production of collagen and is shown to be effective in alleviating facial wrinkles, fine lines, and tightening and toning the face, neck, hands, and body—and it’s at Skin Boutique!
We start with the most revolutionary, best-in-class Vivace Microneedling RF device, designed for an incomparable, comfortable patient experience. Only The Vivace boasts a precision robotic motor that brings discomfort to a virtual zero compared to any other device you will find in your physician’s office. We recommend a personally compounded numbing cream, the best available today, and our carefully developed recovery system ensures no one knows you just had a treatment today. The results are immediate and improve over time, giving you the best of both worlds.
If you are looking for optimal results, look no more. Welcome to The Vivace Experience.

The best candidates for RF Microneedling in the Metro Detroit area are those who:
If you currently have acne, infections, or wound-healing issues, this treatment may not be right for you at this time. If you have any concerns or questions about your candidacy, please come in for a consultation with one of our Skin Care Specialists.
The first step in getting RF Microneedling in Birmingham or anywhere in Metro Detroit is to schedule a consultation at Skin Boutique. When you come in, you will meet with one of our Skin Care Specialists and be able to ask any questions you may have, listen to your goals for the treatment, and evaluate your skin. You will also be asked questions regarding your medical history to prevent any unnecessary risks. After the two of you discuss everything in detail, the Specialist will create your procedure plan, and if you are happy with it, we will be able to perform your RF Microneedling right after your consultation. If you would like to reschedule for any reason, you will be able to speak with our Patient Coordinator and schedule a day and time that works best for you.
When you’re ready for your RF Microneedling, we will begin by making you comfortable in our chair. The Skin Care Specialist will provide you with a topical numbing cream to make your experience more tolerable. Once you both are ready, the Specialist will use a handheld applicator that emits radiofrequency heat and moves the device in a strategic pattern around your targeted area. The RF energy is transmitted through the needles as they puncture your skin, returning the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that offer cumulative and ongoing benefits.
After your treatment, you will be able to leave and continue your normal routine, but you should anticipate your face to be reddened and possibly a little swollen, as well as the appearance of tiny, pinpoint scabs between 24 – 72 hours post-treatment that will naturally disappear when the underlying skin has healed. Outcomes become visible as the skin heals over three to four weeks after a microneedling with an RF session. In order to see optimal results, you should expect to receive three or four treatments spaced one month apart.
The cost of RF Microneedling in the Metro Detroit area is determined by numerous factors, but primarily the number of locations being treated and the surface area. We have provided you with some average prices for treatments below:
