From head to toe, and everywhere in between, Vivace can help improve tone and texture, minimise pore size, and restore a radiant glow to skin damaged by sun, sea, surf, and daily life. It targets fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections with the proven skin benefits of a microneedling treatment. Then Vivace raises the benefits bar with the addition of radiofrequency (RF).
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good candidate for skin rejuvenation with Vivace?
You are, if you are in good physical health and have realistic expectations about how treatments may benefit you. Microneedling is safe, but is not recommended for people who have:
• Moderate to severe eczema
• A disease or condition that causes scaring
• Cancer patients who have chemo/radiotherapy
• Those who are taking Roaccutane for Acne
What skin problems can Vivace help resolve?
With its combination of microneedling and radio frequency therapy, Vivace is an effective treatment for troublesome skin conditions all over the body including:
• Sun damage
• Fine lines
• Enlarged pores
• Lax skin
• Acne scars
• Active acne
• Stretch marks
Unlike other microneedling treatments, Vivace can also be used to treat active Acne.
How long is a Vivace treatment session?
The total treatment time is approximately one hour. Forty-five minutes are needed to numb your skin so that you will be comfortable during your treatment. After your treatment a photonlight will be applied to the area for twenty minutes. This can be customised to suit your specific skin concern to ensure you get maximum benefit from the treatment. The total treatment (including the photonlight) can take between 60 and 120 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
What happens during a Vivace treatment?
Vivace is a hand-held device. In the hands of a medical skin expert, its tiny needles deliver radiofrequency energy in the form of heat to the lower dermis layer of skin. This precise microneedling technique jump-starts your body’s natural cell-regeneration process and the production of collagen and elastin. A photonlight is applied to the area after your treatment to encourage collagen production, calm and soothe the skin.
Does a Vivace skin treatment hurt?
You don’t have to suffer for your beauty. A trained practitioner will apply a topical anaesthetic cream for forty-five minutes prior to treatment. The cream numbs the treatment area, making the experience virtually pain-free for most people.
How many Vivace sessions does it take to rejuvenate skin?
The number of sessions you need will be determined during your consultation. Typically, three treatments, spaced three to four weeks apart, are recommended for optimal results. When treating Acne or scarring more treatments may be required.
Are my wrinkles gone for good with Vivace?
No cosmetic treatment or procedure can promise smooth skin forever. Unfortunately it’s simply not possible. With Vivace, however, you jump start your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. That will help keep your skin smooth, toned, and radiant for as long as six months, and can even help delay more invasive surgery.
Is Vivace microneedling with RF safe?
Vivace is safe for your health and safe for all skin types, too. It is gentle and effective, and a good alternative for individuals who find chemical peels and lasers too harsh.
What are the side effects to a Vivace microneedling treatment?
Patients may experience normal, natural skin responses to the Vivace treatment including redness, mild skin irritation at the treatment site and occasionally mild swelling. These reactions generally clear on their own within 48 hours.
When can I resume my normal activities after Vivace?
Microneedling with radiofrequency is non-surgical. That means you can go about your business once your treatment is complete.
When will I see the results of my Vivace treatment?
Don’t be surprised if you notice brighter looking skin immediately after your first treatment, once any redness has faded. Things will only get better as your body will continue to produce new collagen and production for three to six months.
What is the cost of a Vivace treatment?
A Vivace treatment is a customised approach to skin rejuvenation. Each treatment program is fine-tuned to a patient’s unique skin problems and goals. As such, costs vary depending on the size of the location being treated. You can contact our team of medical skin care experts for a consultation when they will help you design a plan that’s tailored to your skin, your goals, and your budget, too.
