What Is Vivace RF (Radiofrequency) Microneedling?
Vivace microneedling can be used on your face, neck, or body, is ideal for any skin type, and it is especially helpful in reducing acne scarring and fine lines. Improvements in pore size and texture are also seen. Vivace microneedling radio frequency (RF) is also used for non-surgical tightening and to combat early signs of loose or sagging skin in patients where surgery is not an option. We enhance your Vivace Experience with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) or growth factor/stem cell serums if you choose.
Our Vivace Experience combines a specialized topical anesthetic (our “magic cream”), targeted microneedling with radiofrequency energy, and aftercare with Alastin Skin Nectar to help stimulate the skin. When applied to the skin, under topical anesthesia, sterile microneedles are used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin that can stay open for a limited amount of time, which stimulates the body to produce new collagen.
The best part is there is minimal to no pain and no recovery. Our patients love no downtime procedures!
Most patients do 3 treatments, once per month, to start and continue to take care of their skin with one treatment per year.
What Makes Vivace RF (Radiofrequency) Microneedling So Popular?
Vivace combines targeted microneedling with radio-frequency energy to help stimulate and tighten your skin even in the deepest layers. Vivace is safe and effective. You can also treat more than one area, like your face, neck, or stretch marks. The procedure is so popular because it is convenient and delivers the results it advertises.
Who Can Benefit From Vivace RF (Radiofrequency) Microneedling Treatment?
Anyone who wants to see improvements to their skin can benefit from Vivace RF. It is ideal for both men and women. It is very helpful with rolling or depressed acne scars, in conjunction with skin fillers such as Bellafil. The Vivace Experience can be customized for prevention – for younger patients, we often refer to this as “pre-juvenation”. Fine lines, mildly lax skin, redness, and some pore concerns also are improved with Vivace. Vivace is NOT ideal for smokers or sun worshippers.
How Should I Prepare For Vivace RF (Radiofrequency) Microneedling Treatment?
There is no downtime after treatment and no preparation is necessary. The majority of our patients report that the treatment is painless, although you may experience a little discomfort as Vivace RF gently heats the targeted area underneath the epidermis.
How Is Vivace RF (Radiofrequency) Microneedling Administered?
Your skin in the treatment area is numbed prior to your treatment. Vivace microneedling involves the placement of a handheld device over the treatment area, and tiny needles puncture your skin, stimulating new collagen formation in your skin, in addition to triggering the production of skin-tightening hyaluronic acid and elastin. You may experience some redness afterward, but you will be able to resume your normal activities without downtime.
How Long Do Vivace RF (Radiofrequency) Microneedling Results Last?
You may need to undergo anywhere from three to six sessions approximately one month apart, and each treatment takes about 90 minutes including 45 minutes of numbing time.
