Am I A Good Candidate For Vivace?
Vivace RF microneedling can benefit all skin types and tones. Anyone desiring skin resurfacing with minimal to no downtime is a good candidate for a series of Vivace treatments.
People with aging skin should see an improvement in wrinkles, and those with dull skin will see it brighten. Studies show both microneedling and radiofrequency to be effective treatments for stubborn acne scars, so Vivace is a good option for you if you have cleared your acne but still have scarring.
Providers can control the depth and energy level of the treatment, to customize it for your skin. They can also set red or blue LED lights to pulse throughout the treatment. In LED light therapy, red light has anti-inflammatory properties and stimulates collagen production, while blue light kills bacteria.
That said, it’s best to avoid any microneedling treatments while you have active acne blemishes. Moving the needles in and out of the skin can spread bacteria around the face and lead to more breakouts.
How Does Vivace Treatment Work?
The handheld Vivace device delivers radiofrequency energy as heat to the lower dermis layer of the skin via tiny needles. The needles and heat create precise microdamage that jump-starts your body’s cell-regeneration process.
This natural healing response both remodels your skin’s structural proteins—collagen and elastin—and stimulates the production of more. Over time, your skin becomes firmer, plumper, and smoother.
On the day of the treatment, Dr. Baker and our medical aesthetician Denise LaForce will start by applying a topical anesthetic numbing cream, which takes about 30–45 minutes to become fully effective.
Once your skin is numb, it’s as simple as moving the Vivace handpiece over your face.
As part of the Vivace Experience, our aestheticians will apply a soothing sheet mask immediately after your RF microneedling treatment to calm your skin and minimize redness. Then, they’ll apply a balm that you leave on your skin for six hours, until the microchannels created with the microneedling action are actually closed.
You’ll want to keep your skin clear and free of any makeup or other skin-care products for at least that six-hour window, if not overnight. Remember, tiny holes were pricked in your skin, so it will be more sensitive to anything you apply. For best results, we recommend that you avoid direct sun exposure, excessive sweating, and steam for a couple of days too.
Does Vivace hurt?
You’ll probably feel light pressure and an occasional “sparking” feeling, but most of our patients say they felt very little pain during their 45 minute treatment.
How long until I see results from my Vivace treatment?
Your skin may look smoother and brighter within hours of your treatment, but significant results rely on your body’s natural production of collagen, which takes several weeks.
Your skin tone, texture, and overall appearance will continue to improve for up to six weeks with each treatment. You’ll see the best results about six months after beginning Vivace.
