Does Vivace Microneedling Tighten Skin?

Home » Learning Center » Does Vivace Microneedling Tighten Skin?

The quick answer is yes, but there’s more! 

Vivace microneedling is the latest generation of microneedling technology. It combines microneedling tech with Radio Frequency (RF) energy.

Why Radio Frequency Rocks

Microneedling has been around for a while. It works by causing tiny injuries to a targeted area of skin. The skin reacts by activating its natural renewal process. It stimulates collagen and elastin production, effectively producing new, younger-looking skin.

Vivace adds radiofrequency tech to the mix. The RF energy delivered by Vivace needles heats the tissue and causes collagen to tighten. As a result, sagging skin can receive a tightening lift. A series of Vivace treatments encourages new collagen production, which further aids in skin tightening.

Radiofrequency is fantastic because it adds a whole new rejuvenation level to microneedling. It’s capable of producing more noticeable results faster. The average patient can see positive changes in as few as three treatments.

Vivace pairs well with Exilis Ultra or Halo for patients seeking optimal results.

The Pros to Vivace Microneedling

Vivace is an excellent option for anyone with mild skin sagging who are seeking to reduce the appearance of several skin challenges, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Age spots
  • Skin blemishes

It offers five powerful pros to our patients.

Peace of Mind

Vivace is safe for any skin type. It induces the skin’s natural resurfacing power. It’s even safe for darker skin tones, which are at a higher risk of permanent pigmentation changes if the wrong approach is used.

Fast Results

Vivace works faster than other microneedling options, like SkinPen, thanks to RF energy. Radiofrequency energy accelerates the skin tightening process, meaning visible results can be achieved more rapidly with fewer treatments. Vivace also utilizes LED light power to calm inflammation and speed healing time, giving the skin’s natural rejuvenation process a powerful boost.

Virtually Painless

Previous generation microneedling tech depended on a customizable roller or pen-style treatment. The needles could be adjusted to an optimal depth for maximum results. At-home microneedling rollers work similarly but without the adjustment capability. 

Vivace uses superfine, gold-tipped needles designed to smoothly and evenly enter the skin. No other microneedling system on the market is as precise. Vivace’s finer needles and refined robotic motor action results in a smoother and more perfect perpendicular delivery into the dermis, doing far less damage to the tissue while enabling the RF energy to be very precisely placed at the depths selected by the provider. This promotes a cleaner, more comfortable application, giving Vivace a very high comfort level during treatment and little to no downtime while maximizing efficacy.

Multiple Uses

Vivace is safe for numerous uses. You can minimize post-pregnancy stretch marks, shrink large pores, and reduce the appearance of acne scars. It can tighten skin more effectively than other microneedling options and pairs well with other MedSpa treatments, which means even more significant results for you! It’s also safe enough to use on delicate body areas.

Superfine with No Downtime

Remember, Vivace uses superfine needles in combination with RF energy and LED light therapy. The result is laser-like precision and even treatment with little to no bleeding. Post-treatment redness is dramatically reduced. After 24-hours following your treatment, your skin will be ready for a broad-spectrum SPF after treatment, which we strongly recommend to ensure your skin is kept safe as it naturally rejuvenates. Also, makeup can be applied 24-hours post-treatment as well.
