8 Things to Know About Vivace Micro-Needling

While we all know the unfortunate effects of sun exposure over the years, chances are that didn’t stop us from enjoying a bit too much time in the sun when we were young. All that sun-basking and outdoor fun has finally caught up to us – and it can feel like there is no way to reverse the appearance of damage.  

Enter the Vivace Micro-Needling device! This treatment can be a game-changer for people hoping to tighten skin, reduce fine lines, and minimize the appearance of dark spots. For all of us who may have been a little too relaxed about sun exposure in our teens, we can take a sigh of relief. Vivace micro-needling is here to save our skins! 

What is Vivace RF and what does it do? 

Vivace is a next-generation micro-needling device that uses radio frequency to create micro-injuries in the skin. This process provokes your body’s skin healing process to stimulate the production of collagen. That means that even long after treatments, you are still receiving the benefits of Vivace micro-needling.  

While micro-needling in all forms can be beneficial for improving the overall appearance of your skin, Vivace has some serious upgrades. Some lower-quality micro-needling tools can cause tearing, pain and highly variable results. The Vivace micro-needling technology uses 36 gold-tipped needles to create fast and even micro-injuries in the skin, which minimizes pain and maximizes precision for amazing results. 

If you think you’re ready to try Vivace micro-needling, make sure you understand these important aspects of the treatment before booking your appointment! 

Eight things to know about Vivace Micro-needling 

1: You’ll see results quickly 

Vivace Micro-needling is a treatment in which you get out of it what you put into it. It can take multiple treatments to see the full benefits of micro-needling. However, many patients say that they didn’t need to wait long to see noticeable improvements in the appearance of their skin.  

The Vivace micro-needling technology provides an immense amount of precision – this paired with LED light technology minimizes inflammation and speeds skin recovery time. All this to say – even impatient people will be happy with the quick results! 

2: The Average patient gets desired results in three treatments 

Vivace packs a punch. Many skin treatments can take eight or more appointments to achieve total desired results. With Vivace Micro-needling, you can see those desired results in as little as three treatments. That means less time under the micro-needle, less scheduled appointments, less money spent on treatments, all without sacrificing results! 

If you are looking for amazing results with minimal time commitment, Vivace micro-needling is the right treatment for you.  

3: It can minimize the appearance of several types of skin flaws 

Most cosmetic treatments are very good at handling one or two types of skin flaws. They can help out with wrinkles, but they don’t do anything to improve the appearance of dark spots. They can improve dark spots, but they don’t tighten your skin. With Vivace Micro-needling treatments, we can target and improve the appearance of several types of skin priorities – so you don’t have to pick and choose! 

Vivace micro-needling is multi-tasking at its best. The stimulation of the skin-healing process can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots, and even stretch marks! Thanks to the stimulation of collagen production from the healing process, Vivace treatments can also tighten skin and reduce the look of mild jowling or sagging skin around eyelids and cheeks! 

4: Vivace has high ratings across the board – look at the 2020 RealSelf worth it list! 

RealSelf, a highly-respected medical cosmetic rating platform, has a lot to say about Vivace. In their list of 2020 Most Worth it Non-Surgical Treatments, Vivace came in at #13! Vivace Micro-needling has a 92% worth it rating – so we are not messing around when we say almost everyone is completely satisfied and impressed with their results! 

5: There can be minimal downtime post-treatment 

Micro-needling, in general, can have a minor downtime period after treatments while your skin adjusts to the micro-injuries. But with Vivace’s high-precision technology, that downtime is greatly minimized. That means in most cases if you have a Vivace treatment that day, you will be ready for a night out without any indications of the treatment left on your skin.  

6: It is a great option for a majority of skin types 

For individuals with darker skin tones, finding the right skin resurfacing treatments can be tough. With other tools and methods, some people have a risk of a permanent change in skin pigmentation. That risk is enough to write off skin resurfacing altogether. 

Enter Vivace! Vivace micro-needling uses controlled heat and no harsh chemicals during the skin resurfacing process, so people of all skin types and skin tones can enjoy the benefits of micro-needling without having to sacrifice damaging skin pigment.  

7: Some people experience minor levels of discomfort 

As we mentioned before, micro-needling treatments cause micro-injuries in your skin to stimulate healing. These minuscule tears are not going to feel great – some patients experience varying levels of discomfort during the micro-needling process.  

However, here at the G Spa, we take numerous steps to make sure that our patients are as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process. We apply numbing cream and allow 30-60 minutes for the numbing properties to take full effect. With the numbing process, most patients just feel light amounts of pressure that indicate the treatment is getting the job done.  

8: It’s not just for your face! 

Skin doesn’t stop at your chin, right? Neither does the effects of Vivace! Vivace micro-needling treatments can improve the appearance of your skin on your face, neck, décolletage, and hands. Any area where you want to reverse the appearance of sun exposure and aging, Vivace can come to the rescue.  

Whether you’re interested in hand rejuvenation, want to reduce the appearance of aging on your neck, or hoping to tone the skin on your face, Vivace is a great treatment option. 

While the benefits of Vivace treatments are exciting, any cosmetic treatment is only as good as the medical professional holding the tool. To experience the full benefits of Vivace micro-needling technology, make sure to reach out to a trusted medical professional to schedule an appointment.
