The Vivace® Microneedling RF device uses skin tightening technology to reduce visible signs of aging, acne scarring and other skin concerns and restore a vibrant, youthful complexion. The FDA-cleared procedure combines a precise microneedling treatment with radio frequency energy to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. This combination helps stimulate the body’s production of collagen and elastin, leading to improved skin texture, tone and firmness.

Vivace® Microneedling addresses issues such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne/Acne scarring and other scarring
  • Enlarged pores

Prior to treatment, the patient’s skin is prepared with a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. During the procedure, the patient may feel a light pressure on the skin, but no pain should be experienced. Immediately following treatment, the skin may be slightly flushed and feel warm to the touch, similar to a mild sunburn.

A majority of patients are able to resume their normal routines post-procedure and most see immediate improvements in their skin. As the body continues to produce new collagen, the skin will continue to improve, with full results of the treatment visible after 12 weeks.

Additional Vivace® Microneedling treatments spaced four to six weeks apart are recommended to further improve results. Based on your skin goals and the current state of your skin, your California Skin Institute skin care professional can recommend a customized treatment plan for the best results.
