Vivace® RF Microneedling
If signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, loose skin and dark spots are keeping you from putting your best face forward, you could be a great candidate for Vivace® RF microneedling. This next-generation radiofrequency microneedling device offers superior results to other microneedling treatments, thanks to its unique three-in-one treatment approach.
What Is Vivace RF Microneedling?
The Vivace Experience® combines the power of radiofrequency energy, microneedling and a specialized treatment serum and cooling peptide mask to stimulate collagen within your skin and help you achieve a smoother, brighter and more youthful-looking complexion.
This FDA-cleared, minimally-invasive procedure uses 36 gold-tipped needles and an extremely precise device with a robotic step motor that makes Vivace treatments virtually pain-free.
Areas of Treatment
Vivace radiofrequency microneedling is most commonly performed on the face, but is also FDA-cleared for areas of the body like your neck, hands and areas where stretch marks are a concern.
Am I a Candidate?
Most men and women looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, enlarged pores, acne scars, sun damage and even stretch marks could be good candidates for Vivace RF microneedling.
However, if you have active acne, infections, open wounds or wound-healing problems, you may not be a candidate for microneedling. Wait until active acne has cleared before opting for Vivace RF.
How Vivace RF Microneedling Works
Vivace RF microneedling combines radiofrequency energy, advanced microneedling technology and a specialized treatment serum. Together, all three of these components work to stimulate collagen and the natural cell renewal process, resulting in a smoother, brighter and more even skin tone and texture.
- Radiofrequency waves work to stimulate collagen by gently heating the underlying tissue, while not damaging the surface of your skin or surrounding tissues.
- Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, works by creating tiny microchannels within your skin. This process causes your skin to activate its natural healing process, which involves the use of collagen to repair these microscopic skin injuries.
- Serums and peptides. The addition of specialized serums, cooling peptide masks and other topical treatments such as PPR to your microneedling treatment can help enhance your results. When these microchannels in your skin are open, topical products are able to more readily reach the deeper layers of skin where they can target collagen and other important components of the skin rejuvenation process.
When Can I See the Results?
There is little to no downtime required after Vivace RF microneedling, and you will likely notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin’s tone and texture directly following your appointment. However, redness and slight swelling can initially hide your results, which will continue to develop over the next 3 to 6 weeks.
For the first few days, you will be asked to avoid strenuous physical activity and will need to stay out of the sun. Makeup can be worn around 24 hours after microneedling. However, you should check in with your skin care professional about whether it is safe to use topical skin care products before applying them to your skin for the first 24 to 48 hours after your treatment.
