Microneedling is a safe, chemical-free treatment to stimulate collagen growth. When combined with radiofrequency, it becomes the newest revolution in contouring and tightening for the face, neck, hands, and body, producing immediate results, minimal discomfort, virtually no pain, and no downtime.
As opposed to microneedling rollers and pens that can lead to tearing, pain, and variable patient results, the vivace needle contains 36 insulated, gold-tipped needles ready to deliver results at 31 depth settings. The robotic step motor- only found in the Vivace- creates fast and even insertions into the skin, and the chevron-pattern circuitry for the 70-watt patterned RF distributes heat evenly as it delivers skin tightening across the face, reducing redness, hot spots, burning and discomfort that can occur with other devices. Red and Blue LED compliments the treatment. Red LED helps stimulate collagen, whereas the Blue LED disrupts acne bacteria.
You will see immediate results after one treatment, but for the most optimal results and benefits, we recommend a series of at least three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with maintenance treatments throughout the year. Each treatment can take up to an hour and possibly longer based on the treatment plan. We request you arrive 30 minutes before your treatment to apply a topical numbing agent. Your face should remain clean following the procedure since we have created small microchannels that could get clogged with dirt, debris, and makeup. We recommend waiting a full day before applying makeup. Certain topical creams such as glycolic and retinoids should not be used preceding and the following treatment for at least seven days.
