What is Vivace Microneedling?

Vivace is a powerful microneedling system that uses radiofrequency. Vivace has 36 gold-tipped needles and provides a powerful boost to your natural skin.

Microneedling works by using extremely small needles to pierce the very top layers of the skin, which promotes skin growth and collagen production. As your skin heals from microscopic injury of the microneedles, the appearance of unwanted skin issues are reduced. Vivace microneedling can be used to treat wrinkles, discoloration, acne scarring, and skin laxity. Simply by using the skin’s natural healing process, Vivace can allow you to get the skin that you have always wanted without a surgical procedure.

What is the Vivace Microneedling treatment like?

A Vivace treatment is minimally invasive and designed to provide effective skin treatment while minimizing discomfort. The process begins with a specialized numbing cream which is applied for 30 minutes to ensure that the top layer of skin is completely numb before the procedure begins. If the patient would like additional analgesics, we also offer ProNox gas to aid in the numbing process.  ProNox is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that you can request to help prevent or lessen discomfort and/or anxiety during minimally invasive treatments. The ProNox mouthpiece is there for you to use to help you relax or reduce the intensity of your treatment—and you are in complete control.

Once Vivace microneedling begins, you may feel a bit of pressure when the device moves over bonier areas, such as the cheekbones, forehead, and hairline but overall, the discomfort is minimal. We can treat your face/neck/chest with the device as the microneedles penetrate your skin with radiofrequency which reach a deeper level than traditional microneedling. We then add PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) to every Vivace treatment. PRP is collected when a small sample of a patient’s blood is spun in a centrifuge, separating out the PRP from the red blood cells. 

After the Vivace microneedling treatment, you will be given a soothing serum to ensure that your skin is moisturized, hydrated, and ready to heal.

Typically, there are no downtime after the procedure. However, you may notice a slight redness in the face for a few days, and itchiness and peeling can occur in some patients. Neither of these symptoms is a cause for concern and are typical side effects.

Is Vivace Microneedling right for you?

Here are a few of the benefits of this microneedling system. 

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and scarring – As your skin heals from the microneedling process, the appearance of scars and fine lines will be reduced giving you smoother, younger-looking skin.
  • Tightens the skin – Because it boosts collagen production, microneedling with Vivace helps tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, jowls, and loose skin.
  • No recovery process required – The entire Vivace treatment only takes about an hour; recovery is minimal, and you can go back to your normal routines quickly.

Vivace Microneedling FAQ’s

1. How long does Vivace Microneedling take?

The actual treatment takes about 20-45 minutes depending on the area, with an additional 30-45 minutes needed for numbing.

2. What is radiofrequency?

Radiofrequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin.  Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients experience optimal results.

3. How many Vivace Microneedling treatments do I need?

Most providers find that 3 to 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, provides the optimal experience for patients. While the results re often immediate for skin tone and texture, there is also improvement over a three-month period as the process of collagen regeneration increases over time. 

4. When can I wear makeup after my treatment?

Most patients go out without hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the combination of open channels, use our Soothe Mask and Boost Serum. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup. 

5. How long do the results last?

Everyone is different, but the collagen you make is your own and continues accelerated production over three months. Results improve over time.
