Vivace is a microneedling system that is combined with radio frequency energy to stimulate and create skin tightening, texture improvement, and fine line improvement.
Once numbed with a topical anesthetic, the treatment feels like light pressure to the face with an occasional “pinching” feeling.
Radio frequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with microneedling, patients have experienced immediate results.
The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.
We recommend waiting at least 6 hours before you apply makeup for optimal results. However, we realize that you may already have plans in place for the day and you are able to apply make-up after the treatment. We recommend washing the area with a gentle cleanser at the end of the day.
Follow the post treatment recovery protocols once you get home, which include a variety of BioPelle and SkinMedica skin care products. Couple this with abstinence from the sun and 3-5 days off from working out, and you are well on your way to maximizing the Vivace experience. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.
The clear, micro-channels created by The Vivace microneedling system remain open for 4-6 hours thus creating opportunity for serums to go further into the skin. Recovery protocols create optimal results and faster recovery. Typically our clients are ready for the night out with very little to no indication of any treatment later that day.
We recommend 3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to provide optimal results. Results can take up to 3 months to see full effect as the process of collagen regeneration increases over time.
Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.
Everyone is different, but the collagen you make is your own and continues accelerated production over 3 months. Results improve over time.
