DOES IT HURT?
The Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience throughout the treatment. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free. The Vivace was designed with patient comfort in mind.
How does Vivace Work?
When applied to the skin, under topical anesthesia, sterile microneedles are used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin that can stay open up to four to six hours. This stimulates the body to produce new collagen. The precise delivery of RF energy to 31 varying depths of penetration gives The Vivace exceptional outcomes.
Microneedle electrodes deliver bi-polar energy deep into dermis without damaging the epidermis. Minimally invasive RF thermal energy creates fractional electrocoagulation in the dermis which facilitates a natural wound healing process. Wound Healing Mechanisms promote the remodeling of collagen, elastin and wound contraction, which enhances skin laxity.
Pulses of blue and red light activate skin cells to increase collagen production, moisture levels in skin, and improve skin tone and texture.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.
HOW LONG DOES THE RESULT LAST?
Everyone is different, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next six months as results improve over time.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Many physicians find three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience patients are looking for. Single treatment protocols are available depending on experience desired.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with an occasional, light sparking feeling.
WHAT IS MY RECOVERY TIME?
Physicians may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. After that time period, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.
WHAT IS RF?
Radio frequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results.
WHAT KIND OF SKIN DOES IT WORK ON?
Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.
WHEN CAN I WEAR MAKEUP?
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the Vivace treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Soothe Weekly Mask and Soothe Recovery System. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and you may even wait until the next morning.
