Vivace® Microneedling at a Glance

Vivace® is a radiofrequency, or RF microneedling device programmable to deliver different levels of RF energy to different depths of the skin. The 1-2MHz radiofrequency energy in a Vivace® treatment is transmitted via 36 gold-plated insulated needles which perforate the skin at specific levels (0.05mm-3.5mm) via a robotic action. The insulated Vivace® microneedles ensure that the thermal injury from the radiofrequency is delivered from the needle tip directly into the deepest levels of the skin thereby minimizing the risk of burns and hyperpigmentation. However, an uninsulated Vivace® microneedle is also available for patients with lighter skin tones in need of overall tightening of the skin. The Vivace® RF microneedling system may be customized by the depth of the needle, intensity of radiofrequency energy and the time the needle stays in the skin. A further customization is the addition of either red or blue LED emitted from the tip of the rf microneedling handpiece.

The controlled injuries from Vivace® RF microneedling hypercharge the wound response in multiple layers of the skin resulting in increased production of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans for plumper, smoother skin with a lifted appearance and improved texture. The serum applied at the end of a Vivace® RF microneedling treatment provides extra skin nourishment and jumps starts the healing process. 2

What to Know About Vivace® Microneedling

Vivace® is a superb choice for patients with darker skin tones and offers a array of corrective solutions that previously may have only been available with technologies that presented problematic outcomes for such patients. Because the Vivace® RF microneedling system allows a practitioner to customize the depth, power and duration of treatment, Vivace® may be used on patients representing the spectrum of Fitzpatrick skin tones. If a patient is considering a Vivace® treatment, but is unsure of what they may expect, it’s best to request Vivace® before and after photos representing the practitioner’s experience with the Vivace® technology.
