Vivace™ radiofrequency microneedling is a newer method of transforming skin that’s completely nonsurgical. While you may feel relieved to know that you won’t have a lengthy recovery, you may also wonder if the procedure actually works and what it can do for you.
Vivace is becoming very popular and for good reasons. The cosmetic surgery review site RealSelf.com reports that of the readers who have had the procedure done, 86% say it was “worth it.”
Our providers at eleven19 Medical + Weight Loss explain more about the results you may expect when you have this procedure.
What is Vivace?
Vivace is a method of microneedling with the assistance of a Vivace radiofrequency wand.
The Vivace system uses 36 gold-plated tips to leave small marks on the surface of your skin. It works by stimulating your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, the building blocks that create plump, youthful, healthy-looking skin.
As you get older, your body naturally begins to produce less collagen and elastin, which can leave your skin looking sunken and wrinkled. Vivace is a way to encourage your skin to produce more collagen and elastin again.
Benefits of Vivace
Vivace radiofrequency microneedling treatments can do quite a few things to benefit the appearance of your skin. The top benefits include:
Treat acne scars
If your skin bears the scars of previous acne breakouts, you may feel stuck with it. But even if you have significant acne scarring, you can do something about it.
Getting a Vivace radiofrequency microneedling treatment can gradually reshape the condition of your skin, allowing your acne scars to disappear.
Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
If your skin has started to get more wrinkles, especially with the passage of time, you may find that a Vivace treatment is nearly as effective as getting a facelift and doesn’t come with any of the known downsides.
Treat hyperpigmentation and redness
Vivace radiofrequency microneedling can also treat hyperpigmentation and redness, even if you’ve previously tried other treatments that failed.
Radiofrequency energy travels down the Vivace microneedles to heat up the deepest layers of your skin, which allows your skin to repair itself. You may require more than one treatment.
Tighten your facial skin
If your facial skin is sagging or you’re starting to get jowls, look into getting Vivace radiofrequency microneedling treatments. They can tighten your facial skin, making your skin look smoother and more youthful.
Improves your skin’s texture
If your skin texture looks uneven, Vivace radiofrequency microneedling can help. It retextures and smooths your skin, which will look years younger and fresher.
What to expect from Vivace
We start by applying pretreatment numbing cream to your skin. The treatments usually last for about 30-45 minutes, after which we apply a special soothing mask to promote faster healing.
Depending on your situation, you may need several treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. We let you know how many treatments your skin needs.
Your skin may feel a little bit red after the procedure, but you’re free to return to your normal activities. You may also notice that your skin seems to absorb treatments more easily after a microneedling treatment.
