When applied to the skin, sterile microneedles create deep punctures into the skin’s dermis layer that can stay open for up to six hours, stimulating the body’s own production of collagen. The Vivace needle set consists of 36 insulated, gold-tipped needles to penetrate the skin at three different levels. By combining this with precise delivery of RF energy, also at varying depths of penetration, and LED light, Vivace becomes the ultimate microneedling treatment, enhancing both results and comfort.
The Plain Speak
Vivace is a skin revitalisation system designed to improve the health and appearance of the skin. Treatments work by gently heating beneath the skin’s epidermis layer, triggering the body’s natural healing response and leading to long-term, new collagen production. Combining microneedling, radiofrequency and LED light, Vivace is the ultimate 3 in 1 treatment.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, Vivace uses very fine microneedles to create tiny micro punctures deep within the skin. This causes a controlled trauma that activates the skin’s healing response and triggers collagen production.
While microneedling alone gives the skin an instant glow, Vivace takes things a step further by combining this with radiofrequency energy. The heat that such energy provides helps to break up damaged and dead skin cells, providing optimal results for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, scar improvement, pore reduction and improvement of skin tone and texture.
LED Light Therapy works to fasten healing times and enhance results. Wavelengths of red LED light aim to stimulate collagen further, while wavelengths of blue LED light work to target bacteria and active acne.
Together, these modalities work to address a number of common skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, acne and scarring, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and poor skin tone and texture. Better yet, Vivace RF Microneedling is suitable for all skin types.
While the idea of puncturing your skin with tiny needles may sound daunting, Vivace treatments are actually rather comfortable. We will apply a numbing cream to your skin 30 minutes before treatment so that you won’t feel a thing, other than some slight pressure as the device moves against your skin. Each treatment session will take around 45 minutes to complete, and you can return to your usual activities immediately afterwards.
To achieve best results, a series of three to five sessions are usually recommended. When it comes to results, patience is key. Your skin requires time to repair and rejuvenate, meaning that collagen will grow gradually over the course of several weeks. As collagen levels continue to increase, results will only get better with time. You can expect these results to last for up to six months; however, regular top-up treatments can help you maintain these results in the long-term.
