Vivace® Microneedling offers patients a unique experience when using collagen induction therapy (CIT) to address the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and blemishes on the surface of the skin. Combining the process of micro-needling with the heat energy of RF therapy, the Vivace Experience® can deliver exceptional results with minimal discomfort and downtime. Vivace is a safe, chemical-free cosmetic therapy that is available to a wide range of patients.
How does Vivace work?
Vivace is a comprehensive microneedling procedure that is performed in the comfort of our Langhorne medical office. The handheld device delivers collagen-stimulating RF energy through 36 needles as it is moved across the skin. The needles gently create micro-tears in the outer skin layers and the RF energy heats the tissue to boost collagen and elastin production. The combination provides a comprehensive treatment that not only improves the appearance and texture of the skin but also the underlying skin tone due to increased collagen and elastin.
The procedure is completed in about 90 minutes, which includes approximately 45 minutes to numb the areas to be treated. Most patients can resume their daily activities after their procedure with minimal discomfort or noticeable swelling.
Can I wear makeup after microneedling?
It is recommended that patients receiving microneedling with Vivace wait at least 6 hours before applying makeup to the skin. This allows the micro-tears in the skin to close and begin the healing process.
How many microneedling treatments will be necessary?
A series of 3 treatments performed 4-6 weeks apart is generally recommended but your unique treatment plan will be dependent upon the condition of your skin, area(s) to be treated, and the desired result. In some cases, a single treatment can visibly improve the appearance and texture of the skin.
