You’ve probably heard of microneedling, a rejuvenation technique that uses little needle pricks to solve a large list of unwanted skin problems: acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, brown spots, stretch marks, and large pores. Microneedling has become one of the most popular ways to fight the signs of aging.
While the end product of microneedling may be something you’re interested in, you may worry about pain from the needles. An innovative microneedling tool, Vivace™, looks to change this. Vivace RF microneedling is almost pain-free and achieves beautiful results. The future in microneedling has arrived.
Ready to try the best microneedling tool on the planet? Dr. Andrew Gear and our team at Providence Plastic Surgery are happy to work with you to determine if this anti-aging method is right for you.
Here are 5 reasons to try Vivace RF microneedling.
1. Vivace has features that other microneedling devices don’t
As any microneedling device makes holes in your skin, your body begins a healing response. Then over time, collagen is produced to make the healed skin look fresher and tighter.
But Vivace has the added element of radiofrequency (RF) energy and LED lights to help improve skin overall. RF energy is emitted into the skin to boost collagen production during the microneedling.
In addition, red and blue LED lights are used to stimulate additional collagen production and to treat acne-causing bacteria, respectively.
2. Vivace is nearly pain-free
Most microneedling devices aren’t precise. As they roll over your skin, the needles don’t always come out as planned, which can tear skin and increase irritation.
The needles in Vivace shoot downward into the skin before retracting back up. The needle hits its mark directly and there is no risk of tearing or catching. Because the needles are electronically controlled, the level of puncture can be adjusted to 31 different levels. This allows the treatment to be customized for your skin type.
3. Vivace can reduce signs of aging in other parts of the body
Your face isn’t the only place where the signs of aging or scars can occur. Vivace’s unique design makes it a perfect match for other areas that need tightening. Not only does the device fit in areas like the hands, neck, and chest, but the electronically controlled depth of the needle punctures can be calibrated to work with skin that’s both thinner or tougher than facial skin.
4. Vivace can reduce the appearance of stretch marks and acne scarring
Vivace doesn’t just help you turn back the clock on your skin. It also can make unflattering features such as stretch marks and scarring, caused by aggressive acne, look less noticeable.
5. Vivace primes the skin for serums and nutrients
The 36 gold-tip needles found in every device make precise, open microchannels that funnel special serums into your skin for better absorption. Vivace allows for customization depending on which soothing post-treatment products you receive.
6. Vivace shows optimal results in only a few treatments
After a Vivace treatment, you’re cleared to immediately return to regular activities. Any redness or bleeding should be minimal a few hours with no other visible side effects. One thing people may notice after your treatment, however, is how refreshed your skin already looks. Many patients achieve optimal effects with just three sessions.
