If you are among the many people searching for a way to recapture the look of your youth, then you probably have heard of or read about what microneedling is. However, you may not have heard about the newest technology: microneedling with radiofrequency.

This newly FDA-approved device is the next generation in facial aesthetics. Called Vivace, it works by stimulating the body’s natural ability to produce collagen, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while toning and tightening the skin.
What is Vivace & How Does it Work?
Vivace is a skin rejuvenation that combines both microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) to optimize collagen production. It is a minimally invasive treatment designed to target multiple undesired skin conditions and concerns that occur on the face and body, such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Crepe skin
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone or texture
By delivering radiofrequency energy as heat to the lower layer of skin through tiny needles, this handheld device can create microdamage with exact precision, kickstarting the body’s natural cell restoration. For the most effective results, it is recommended that at least 3-4 treatments are had with a span of 4-6 weeks in between. This correlates with the body’s natural skin cell cycle. In time, your skin will become smoother and more firm with fewer signs of visible lines or scarring.
While microneedling is great for those who want to see minor, consistent improvements over time, for those who want to really enhance their appearance more quickly and with more noticeable results, adding the heat from RF will provide a more intense response in the body, elevating the benefits that you would get from microneedling alone. Any type of skin type or tone can benefit from Vivace; the level of treatment can be completely tailored to you and your specific needs.
What to Expect With Microneedling With Radiofrequency
Prior to your session, you will be given instructions on proper preparation to follow within the 24 hours leading up to the procedure. 30-45 minutes before the treatment begins, a numbing cream will be applied. Once the skin is numb, the device will be strategically moved across the desired areas.
When the microneedles hit the skin at the proper depth, they emit heat from their insulated tips into the skin. The procedure typically takes 45 minutes but will vary. No real downtime is required, but you will need to avoid direct sun, excess sweat, and steam for the first few days to allow the skin to heal.
