Expert NYC Dermatologist Introduces Breakthrough RF Microneedling Treatment in Manhattan

Dr. Sejal Shah Introduces Vivace, an advanced technology used to enhance a patient's natural beauty at SmarterSkin Dermatology

NEW YORK - November 15, 2017 - (

​​​​​The demand for non-invasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery has grown exponentially in the last few years and is projected to continue growing for the next five years. Amongst the fastest growing treatments is microneedling – a minimally invasive treatment that triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin by creating tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. As of this November, Sejal Shah, M.D., and her team at SmarterSkin Dermatology in Tribeca, now offer Vivace RF Microneedling – the newest generation in microneedling technology that offers the highest level of skincare benefits and comfort to their patients.

The Vivace Microneedling RF combines the benefits of microneedling with the skin tightening effects of radiofrequency (RF) and is able to do so at highly precise and deeper layers of the skin. The Vivace can penetrate up to 3.5mm, almost twice that of other leading microneedling devices and do so with virtually zero pain and no downtime. Furthermore, the small channels created by the Vivace’s 36 gold-tipped needles remain open and clear for hours, providing the ideal condition to administer post-treatment serums and recovery protocols, like PRP.

“I have seen the benefits of both microneedling and radiofrequency separately but in combination, they work synergistically to give a much better outcome,” says Shah. “The Vivace, when compared to some of the other devices on the market is not only more effective but more comfortable for the patient.”

The addition of the Vivace device allows Dr. Shah to continue to meet the growing demand for non-surgical, cosmetic procedures. Such non-invasive treatments require the use of the latest treatments and technologies available to effectively enhance each patient’s natural beauty. “Our commitment to providing the highest quality care is the foundation of SmarterSkin Dermatology,” says Dr. Shah. “Therefore, we are proud to partner with Cartessa Aesthetics to bring the first-ever Vivace RF Microneedle to the Manhattan market.”

Founded to help support physicians like Dr. Shah, Cartessa operates independently from any one manufacturer, hand-selecting technology from around the globe that offers the best combination of results and experience for patients. “When you are a physician in this industry, you are introduced to many devices and offers. Cartessa is a very personal relationship that I haven’t found anywhere else. It’s refreshing.”

The Vivace is effective for reducing wrinkles and rosacea/spider veins, eliminating acne scars and stretchmarks and skin tightening. While most see immediate results, Dr. Shah recommends that her patients undergo three treatments for optimal results. Patients can now schedule their Vivace RF Microneedling treatments with Dr. Shah at SmarterSkin Dermatology.
