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.
Does it hurt?
Our Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream, the best numbing cream available, 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 do I determine the right treatment for me?
It’s important to work with a trusted doctor who uses FDA-cleared devices to give you confidence in its safety and reliability. Seek a patient experience that has been designed to be the most comfortable experience with the greatest results. Be clear that the device used is only part of the process, the right serums and recovery system will enhance your results.
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 tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results.
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.
How long does it take?
The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, 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 treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Enhance 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.
How do I get the maximum result from my treatment?
Start with the right device, with the right treatment serums with the right recovery system. Follow the recommended recovery protocols once you get home, which include Enhance Weekly Mask, and the Soothe Recovery System that includes a soothing spray, cleanser and balm. Couple this with abstinence from the sun and three to five days off from working out, and you are well 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?
The clear, microchannels created by The Vivace remain open for a limited time—unique to The Vivace. 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.
