If you haven’t heard about Vivace Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling, you’ve definitely been living under a rock! Vivace is one of the best, non-invasive treatments used to address fine lines and wrinkles, crepey texture, scarring, stretch marks, and other skin blemishes. Vivace utilizes RF energy to promote layers of new collagen production which remodels skin, leaving it smoother, firmer, and more youthful. As a microneedling treatment, Vivace blows the competition out of the water. Today we’re covering four reasons why Vivace is better than traditional microneedling.
Traditional microneedling methods aim to create micro-injuries in the skin. These injuries are a good thing because they trigger the body’s natural healing process, which involves the production of more collagen and elastin. Traditional microneedling only creates vertical columns of controlled injury. With Vivace, you get the vertical columns of mechanical injury combined with the beautiful horizontal layers of injury from the RF energy. Not to get too technical, but the radiofrequency energy heats the deep layers of tissue to further stimulate collagen production.
And this is why Vivace is the clear frontrunner to traditional microneedling methods.
You’ll notice brighter and smoother skin almost immediately after treatment. And while it may take several weeks to see more pronounced toning and smoothing of the skin, the benefits of this form of microneedling are longer-lasting and do not require other forms of resurfacing to be noticeably effective. (But Vivace also pairs beautifully with fractional laser treatments, like the CO2 laser CoolPeel!) #Winning
Patients most always leave traditional microneedling treatments with red, raw skin. Remember that the purpose of microneedling is to induce some injury in order to initiate the skin’s healing process and, subsequently, collagen and elastin production.Collagen and elastin are what you want! The few days of red, raw skin just happen to be the downtime associated.
But not with Vivace.
Vivace uses RF energies during the treatment process, and these essentially cauterize blood vessels as the treatment takes place. This means that you get the benefits of the body’s healing process being triggered (hello, collagen and elastin!) but with the added benefit of not having to leave your treatment with red, raw skin! Vivace patients generally leave their treatments with smooth, pink skin and very few (if any) red spots.
We talk A LOT about the importance and difference between regular products and medical-grade products on this blog and in our practice. And once again, medical-grade takes the cake.
Vivace RF Microneedling uses medical-grade needles. This means the needles are sterile, extra sharp, and longer than traditional microneedling needles. These are three things you want if you’re going to be comfortable and get the most out of your treatment! Not only are medical-grade needles safer, their extended length—combined with how sharp they are—means they penetrate more deeply and more painlessly into the skin. This furthers your results and your overall patient experience.
On top of all this, the specially designed Vivace handpiece (where the needles are) also has an incredibly smooth motor. This smooth motor makes the treatment much—MUCH—more comfortable for patients.
Save for the rare instance where a patient has a pacemaker or a metal implant in their face, there is no reason to choose traditional microneedling over Vivace RF Microneedling. Vivace is the better treatment method. It’s more comfortable for patients, it comes with significantly less downtime, and it gets better results. Period. Full stop. End of story.
And there you have it! These are the top four reasons why Vivace RF Microneedling is better than traditional microneedling.
