9 Reasons We ❤ Vivace™ RF Microneedling

Posted on May 31, 2018 | by

Have you heard? We have a new microneedling treatment at Boston Plastic Surgery! It’s called Vivace™ Fractional Microneedle RF, and it’s fair to say we haven’t been this excited about a skin rejuvenation technology in quite awhile.

Vivace is an FDA-cleared treatment that combines the latest generation of microneedling technology with radiofrequency (RF), a proven non-invasive skin tightening method, and LED light therapy. This powerful treatment quickly and effectively reduces fine lines, scars, stretch marks, and other blemishes—in addition to lifting and firming mild skin sagging and restoring an overall smoother, more youthful appearance. Learn more about how microneedling works with Vivace.

Here are just a few reasons we think you’ll love Vivace as much as we do:

1. You’ll see results quickly

Three factors unique to Vivace help it work faster than other microneedling options. First, integrated RF energy accelerates collagen production and skin tightening. Second, LED light calms inflammation and speeds healing time. Third, the gold-tipped needles create invisible “microchannels” in the skin that are extra receptive to the nutrient serums applied during treatment. These serums “feed” your skin with key nutrients to help rapidly rebuild new collagen and elastin.

2. The average patient gets optimal results in just three treatments

Most patients notice significantly smoother, softer, and younger-looking skin, as well as improvements in skin tone and texture, after just one treatment. This means we can achieve optimal results after only three sessions (most other microneedling options require up to six treatments).

3. Treatment is virtually painless

Older microneedling technologies that use a roller or pen can tear skin during treatment—and that hurts. Vivace uses superfine, insulated, gold-tipped needles that enter the skin smoothly and evenly with no tearing. A numbing cream applied about 30 minutes before treatment is all you should need to stay comfortable. We also apply a soothing mask immediately after treatment to help cool the skin and minimize redness.

4. There’s no downtime

Vivace’s superfine needles and robotic-assisted mechanism result in an exceptionally precise, even treatment with little-to-no bleeding. Built-in LED Light therapy minimizes post-treatment redness, too. While we ask patients to wait until the next day before applying makeup, most feel comfortable going out without any makeup. Of course, you’ll need to apply broad-spectrum SPF after microneedling to protect treated skin from the sun.

5. It’s safe for almost any skin type

Patients with darker skin tones can have a more challenging time finding suitable skin resurfacing treatments, as lasers and peels that remove skin layers can risk permanent pigmentation changes. Vivace induces natural skin resurfacing without using heat or harsh chemicals or removing skin layers, so it’s safe for darker skin.

6. It tightens skin better than other microneedling options

While microneedling already helps firm skin texture, the addition of RF energy takes skin tightening to another level. That means Vivace is an excellent, downtime-free option to tighten mild jowling or sagging skin around the eyelids, cheeks, or neck.

7. It’s excellent for minimizing stretch marks, acne scars, and large pores

If you have stretch marks, you likely know how hard it is to find an effective treatment for them! The collagen-building “power couple” of microneedling and RF helps strengthen and improve texture of stretch-marked skin. It also helps with other common texture flaws, such as acne scars and large pores, restoring a smoother, more even appearance.

8. Vivace can rejuvenate the hands, neck, and decolletage too

We can adjust the depth of Vivace microneedling to safely firm and smooth thinner skin on the hands, neck, and chest, which are often in need of a little rejuvenation too.
