Microneedling is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment that uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone and texture.
Vivace Experience® takes microneedling to the next level by combining it with radiofrequency (RF) energy for faster, more dramatic results.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling involves using a device with 36 tiny gold-plated needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, increasing collagen and elastin production. More collagen gives skin a plumper, smoother appearance, while elastin improves elasticity and firmness.
During a microneedling treatment, a topical anesthetic is first applied to numb the skin. The microneedling device is then rolled over the treatment area, typically the face and neck. Patients may experience some mild redness and swelling after treatment. This subsides within a few days.
The Benefits of Microneedling
Some benefits of microneedling include:
- Improved texture and reduction of fine lines/wrinkles
- Smoother, brighter, more even skin tone
- Reduction of acne scars
- Minimizing large pores
- Increased absorption of skincare products
- Safe for all skin types
Microneedling is less invasive than laser treatments and other skin resurfacing procedures. Most patients require a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results, followed by annual maintenance sessions.
What is The Vivace Experience®?
Vivace Experience® is a specialized microneedling treatment. This advanced approach combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy.
RF energy heats tissue beneath the skin’s surface, causing collagen fibers to contract. This results in tighter, firmer skin that better retains moisture. RF also eliminates fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating new collagen.
By pairing RF with microneedling, the Vivace Experience® provides superior results compared to microneedling alone. The combination boosts collagen production while also improving elastin and tightening skin.
Patients see noticeable improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and tone after just 1-2 sessions.
What to Expect During and After Treatment
The Vivace Experience® takes about 30-60 minutes depending on the treatment area. A topical anesthetic is applied to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. Patients typically describe the treatment as feeling like a hot stone massage.
Skin may be slightly red for 24 hours following treatment. Pinpoint bleeding may also occur but resolves quickly. Most patients are able to return to normal activities right after their appointment.
To maintain results, annual maintenance sessions are recommended. Proper skin care after treatment is also important, so be sure to follow your provider’s post-care regimen. This helps promote new collagen growth and healthy skin.
