How it Works
The treatment will start with a numbing solution being applied to the skin. Technician will choose the specific settings, such as needle depth, for your custom treatment. During the Vivace treatment, your provider will add RF energy into the deeper layers of the skin for skin tightening, create micro-channels in the epidermis of the skin, and use LED lights to promote collagen and destroy any acne bacteria. Since the radio frequency system is motor controlled, it is very accurate and effective. The micro-channels created go straight into the skin rather than at an angle like traditional Microneedling which can lead to less bleeding and quicker recovery.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
RF Microneedling treatment can treat almost anywhere that shows visible signs of aging. The main areas for treatment from Vivace are the face, neck, and hands. This helps to create a youthful appearance to those with aging, sagging skin.
What Does it Feel Like?
The treatment is virtually-painless for patients. To minimize pain and discomfort, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area before the procedure. Once the face is numb, the skin will be cleansed and then treatment can start. Many patients say it feels like a light pressure is being added to the skin. There may be some pinpoint bleeding from the needles, but nothing major.
