What does it feel like?
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face with an occasional warming sensation.
Does it hurt?
Typically, 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® RF Microneedle was designed with patient comfort in mind.
How do I determine the right treatment for me?
It’s important to work with a trusted provider who uses FDA-cleared devices to give you confidence in its safety and reliability. Seek a patient experience that has been designed to be a comfortable experience with great results. Be clear that the RF microneedling device used is only part of the process, the right serums and recovery system will enhance your results by further improvement to skin tone and texture your face.
Here are additional questions clients like you have asked.
What is RF?
Radio frequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles for younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results.
How many treatments do I need?
Treatment protocols are determined by your provider. Many providers find three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience patients are looking for. Single treatments are available depending on up the outcome desired.
How long does the treatment take?
The total treatment takes about 45 minutes on the face, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.
When can I wear makeup?
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize The Vivace® microneedling treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Soothe Mask and Boost Serum. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and suggest you wait until the next morning.
How do I get the maximum result from my treatment?
Start with the right device, with the right treatment serum, with the right recovery system. Follow your providers recommended recovery protocols once you get home. We suggest the inclusion of the Soothe Mask and the Boost Serum. Couple this with abstinence from the sun and twenty-four hours off from working out, and you are on your way to maximizing the Vivace Experience® for yourself. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.
What kind of skin does it work on?
Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.
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.
What is my recovery time?
Providers may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. After that time period, our patients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment.
