Vivace® Microneedling Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach is rich with history and beautiful beaches. Residents and tourists alike love to stroll on the boardwalk and in the surf. Unfortunately, all that time in the sun can damage your skin. The UV rays can inhibit skin elasticity, which results in fine lines and wrinkles.

Are you looking to smooth out your skin with great results and minimal downtime? Dermacare is pleased to offer Vivace® Radio Frequency Microneedling, an innovative new treatment to address wrinkles. Best of all, our office is just a short drive from Virginia Beach. Discover what RF microneedling can do for you, and how Dermacare can help you look your best.

What is Vivace® RF Microneedling?

Vivace® Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is the newest revolution in minimally invasive tightening and contouring for the face, neck, and body. It works by stimulating your body’s production of collagen to provide immediate results that improve over time. If you’re ready to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, crepey skin, pore size, acne scars, or stretch marks and achieve gorgeous, glowing skin, this microneedling treatment is for you.

Am I a Good Candidate for Vivace® Microneedling?

Ideal candidates for Vivace® RF Microneedling may have mild-to-moderate signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, or enlarged pores, and are looking to improve skin texture and tone. Unlike many others, this treatment is FDA-approved to improve skin issues anywhere on the body, so it can work on stretch marks as well. Vivace® RF Microneedling provides impressive results for people of all ages with any skin type, including people with tanned or darker skin.

How Does Vivace® Microneedling Work?

Vivace® RF Microneedling combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the power of radiofrequency energy. The FDA-approved device uses ultrafine needles to penetrate the skin and deliver radiofrequency (heat) energy to deeper layers of the skin.

Delivering this energy directly to the lower layers of skin results in less downtime for patients, since the top layer of skin remains intact. It also produces immediate results as well as results that appear over time as the deeper levels of skin regenerate and rise to the surface. Best of all, the radiofrequency energy can be completely customized to your exact skin type and desired goals, making it an excellent solution for a variety of skin issues.

What Can I Expect During Vivace® Microneedling Treatment?

Even though the treatment consists of ultrafine needles and radiofrequency energy, the Vivace® RF Microneedling is virtually painless with use of a topical numbing cream. Most of our patients tell us it feels warm and slightly pinchy. One treatment takes between thirty minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the size of your treatment area. We usually recommend three treatments, but your provider will customize your plan to your needs to ensure optimal results.

There is little to no downtime required after receiving Vivace® RF Microneedling. Once treatment is finished, you may be slightly pink to slightly pink and puffy. This will resolve in about 24 hours. Makeup can be applied in 24 hours. You will only be asked to avoid strenuous activities during the first 48–72 hours after treatment and avoid long showers or baths, which could trigger the face’s natural response to flush. This is to keep skin vessels closed and improve the efficacy of the treatment.

When Will I See Results From Vivace® Microneedling?

Immediately after your treatment, your skin will be sensitive and slightly flushed, so it is essential to wear sunscreen, especially during this time. Within a day or two, this sensitivity fades and you will begin to see a more radiant, even complexion. Your skin will continue to improve over the next three to six weeks. The results should last for quite a while, as the production of collagen and elastin triggered by the treatment will continue to accelerate over six months.

For even more dramatic results, we can combine Vivace® RF Microneedling with Growth Factor Therapy, a process where growth factors are infused into the treatment area via the microchannels created by the needles, to repair and build new skin cells.

How Many Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?

Everyone is different, so there is no easy answer to how many treatments with a microneedling device you will need. Dermatology is a very individualized science, tailored specifically to the individual patient. When you visit our medical spa, your dermatologist will determine the specific treatment protocols for you.

Many providers will recommend around three treatments, each one spaced four to six weeks apart from the last, to provide optimal results. Sometimes your provider may recommend maintenance treatments to keep the effects in place, depending on the outcome you desire. In the end, the number of treatments depends on your request and what you want to get out of the procedure. Your provider will work with you to develop a completely individualized course of treatment.

How Long Does Vivace® Microneedling Last?

Again, every patient is different, but unlike plastic surgery, BOTOX®, or dermal fillers where artificial serums are injected into the skin, microneedling stimulates your body’s ability to make its own collagen and elastin, and your body continues to produce these natural substances for skin tightening and skin rejuvenation over the next six months. For many patients, the results last for a few years.

In the end, the exact duration of your radiofrequency microneedling skin rejuvenation treatments will depend on the number of initial treatments as well as the number of touch-up and maintenance treatments chosen when you develop your plan. Routine maintenance treatments are recommended for the best patient experience and long-term results.

Does Vivace® Microneedling Have Side Effects?

Unlike many forms of plastic surgery, radiofrequency microneedling skin treatments are minimally invasive treatments that let you go about your daily business with very little worry. After the numbing cream wears off, you may experience limited redness, swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and scabbing at the treated area. These are temporary effects that should resolve within a few days.

You should see improved skin tone that is brighter and smoother almost immediately. It may take several weeks to see pronounced toning and tightening of the skin. The benefits of this form of skincare, however, are long-lasting and do not require other forms of resurfacing to be effective. It also works on any skin tone.
