Benefits of Vivace Microneedling

The benefits of microneedling are well known. This practice creates tiny punctures in the skin. The body responds to these micro-injuries by sending healing components to the injured sites. Part of the body’s healing response includes boosting collagen production to help repair the micropunctures. The Vivace device goes further and sends radiofrequency (RF) energy into the skin. This energy works in tandem with microneedling to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The heat from the Vivace device also helps reduce fat in the targeted areas. Here are some of the most notable benefits of this treatment:

  • Non-surgical skin tightening and rejuvenating treatment
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Requires minimal downtime
  • Alleviates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Reduces the appearance of sun spots and other skin discolorations
  • Minimizes the appearance of scars (including acne scars)
  • Virtually pain-free

How Vivace RF Microneedling Works

You may be familiar with microneedling, a procedure that involves gently rolling needle-clad devices across the skin. The needles create tiny puncture marks that are so small they don’t leave scars behind once they heal. In response to these micro-injuries, the body activates its natural healing processes. Part of the healing process includes increasing the collagen production rate in the skin and sending greater blood flow to the damaged area.

As the body repairs the tiny injuries, the treatment site becomes smoother, more elastic, and more vibrant. Adding RF energy only further enhances these results. The RF Energy goes into the skin through the needles. It warms the tissues and makes the skin firmer and tighter. This treatment can address many different complexion concerns, including wrinkles, large pores, and loose skin along the face and neck.

Vivace Radiofrequency Microneedling in San Francisco: What to Expect

It’s important to note that the best results aren’t immediately apparent after treatment. It may take weeks for optimal results to appear. The body needs time to ramp up collagen production and repair the treatment sites. Many people continue to see gradual improvements in their complexion months after their initial treatments.1

Before your treatment, we’ll ensure you’re comfortable and know exactly how the procedure works. We’ll also take this time to answer any questions that may come up. We’ll apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment site so you don’t feel pain. When you’re numb, we’ll gently place the Vivace microneedling device on your skin. You may feel slightly stinging or burning as the needles enter your skin. But most people describe the sensation as mildly uncomfortable and not painful.

Each treatment usually takes less than an hour to complete. We recommend that most of our patients receive a series of treatments. This will help ensure optimal results. We space each appointment a few weeks apart to allow the body to heal between treatments fully.

Vivace Microneedling Recovery

Most people can return to their daily lives after their Vivace treatments. You may experience localized skin redness, swelling, and discomfort for up to 26 hours. You may also notice tiny scabs where the needles went in. These should fall off on their own within a few days. Be careful not to scratch your treated skin or expose it to sunlight in the days following your treatment. If you do plan to go out in the sun, wear sunblock.
