This is my absolute favorite treatment to encourage collagen and elastin production, minimize pores and fine lines, and gives you an amazing glow without downtime.
It’s the newest generation of radio frequency microneedling, and The Vivace is FDA-cleared for your safety. This minimally-invasive treatment stimulates the natural production of collagen and is shown to be effective in alleviating facial wrinkles, fine lines, and tightening and toning the face, neck, hands, and body.
What to expect:
When you come in for your appointment we will clean and dry your face and apply a numbing cream. The cream will be on for 15-30 minutes to assure your comfort during the procedure. The actual treatment feels like a little pinch (I’ve had it done, and for me the pinching sensation was minimal). It will last 20-30 minutes depending on the areas that we decide to treat.
You may experience a mild redness after the procedure, and we will apply a mask developed with growth factors to sink down into those channels and give you skin the support to start healing and making new collagen and elastin. Those microchannels will be open for 3-4 hours after the procedure. I recommend not applying any additional sunscreen or barriers to the skin. You can bring a hat if you need it for sun protection (although I DO NOT recommend prolonged sun exposure). I will send you home with the remainder of the growth factor serum (from your mask) and you can use it at night before going to bed. The next morning you will wake up for more radiant skin, pores will appear smaller and skin tone and texture will improve. You will continue to see improvements in skin appearance with repeated treatments.
How often should you consider Vivace Fractional Microneedling RF?
The cell cycle for the surface of the skin is about 28 days, so you should not have treatments any closer together than one month. Optimally, you should consider seasonal treatments (4 per year). We can discuss package pricing if you choose to go that route. If you are having this done before an event (wedding, special occasion, etc.), I would recommend at least 3-5 days prior to the event
