You can’t stop the aging process, but you can take steps to reverse how it’s affecting your skin. At Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, TN, we offer an anti-aging treatment called Reverso that combines the power of radiofrequency energy with microneedling to force the body to respond to the treatment by naturally increasing collagen and elastin production in the area. This treatment results in smoother, younger-looking skin as it can smooth lines and wrinkles to promote youthful, radiant skin.
What Is Reverso?
Reverso is a fractional device that can reverse the aging process through a skin resurfacing treatment. It combines multiple skin-perfecting modalities into one treatment to treat some of the most noticeable signs of aging, address skin imperfections, and promote skin health.
We can design a treatment plan with this device to address your skin concerns and help you achieve a healthier and younger-looking complexion. At Gold Skin Care Center, Kevin Griffin, PA-C, Marci Levy Kleinrock, PA-C, and Collette Utley, DNP, NP-C, perform our Reverso treatments.

What Does It Treat?
This anti-aging treatment can address a number of different skin concerns, both aging-related and cosmetic. As a tissue remodeling device, it will rejuvenate the skin to help improve skin tone and texture. It is a corrective treatment that reduces skin textural irregularities. It also has skin-tightening benefits and can treat lax skin to make it tighter and firmer.
It naturally restores elasticity by forcing the body to increase elastin production, making the skin fuller with increased collagen production. It has a shrinking effect on large pores and a blurring effect on stretch marks and acne scars.
How Does It Work?
This treatment device uses different treatment heads, known as tips, to distribute the right amount of radiofrequency energy and needles into the skin based on the patient’s needs. We will adjust the treatment device based on your skin type, concerns, the overall condition of your skin, your desired treatment area, and your comfort level.
The device is equipped with three different interchangeable tips, one of which has 176 pins, another which has 88 pins, and one with 44 pins. We can also adjust the treatment to deliver different pulses of radiofrequency energy into the skin and can adjust the device to perform flat, super, double, quadro, and double speed scan pulses.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
While you will achieve better skin after a single treatment, the best results come when patients schedule several treatments, typically three to four, with four to six weeks between each. This treatment schedule gives the skin time to heal, recover and repair itself before another round of collagen induction therapy.
Are the Treatments Painful?
The treatment process begins with the application of a pre-treatment numbing cream. You can rest assured that we will take every step to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.
When Will I See the Results?
Your results will improve in the weeks following your treatment as your body produces increased collagen and elastin in the treatment area and replaces damaged, older cells with healthier, younger skin cells. Results will continue to improve over time, and you’ll see improved results with each treatment you schedule.
Is There Downtime?
You won’t have to plan around specific downtime, but your skin will take a few days to recover from the treatment. Some patients notice redness or peeling within the first few days, which is a sign of increased cellular renewal and skin resurfacing results. You’ll be able to wear makeup 24 hours after your treatment, but it’s important that you avoid excess sun exposure and strenuous workouts immediately following the treatment to promote the best results.
We will give you some specific aftercare instructions about washing your face, which activities to temporarily avoid for the first few days, and which keep your skin hydrated and nourished as it heals.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Results can last for several months at a time. Maintenance treatments can ensure that you continue to target skin concerns and maintain your results long-term. We can give you the best treatment schedule for your skin so that you know how often to schedule treatments to combat aging so you can achieve and maintain your ideal skin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for Reverso are patients who want to naturally improve the appearance of their skin and reverse the signs of aging without undergoing an invasive procedure. Patients who don’t want to plan around a significant recovery or downtime also make good treatment candidates.
There are some patients who may not qualify for treatment due to safety reasons. We can give you more details about the treatment and confirm your eligibility during your initial consultation.
