Wouldn’t it be great to have a magic wand that could erase years of stress, skin aging, and sagging and bring back your youthful, healthy complexion? We’ll keep working on that, but for now, we have the next best thing: a revolutionary new microneedling treatment called Vivace™.
Vivace integrates microneedling technology with radiofrequency and LED to dramatically improve skin tone, texture and appearance on the face, neck, hands or body in as few as 1 to 3 treatments. Designed with patient comfort and safety in mind, Vivace is virtually painless, it is safe for any skin type, and there’s no downtime.
Before and After
How Does it Work?
Like all microneedling treatments, Vivace triggers your skin’s natural healing process…
Like all microneedling treatments, Vivace triggers your skin’s natural healing process by creating microscopic openings in the skin with tiny needles. Your skin builds new collagen and elastin and increases cell turnover in response to these “microinjuries,” resulting in a smoother, more even complexion within weeks. Three things make Vivace different from other microneedling procedures:
Enhanced skin tightening with radiofrequency
Radiofrequency (RF), which uses heat energy to boost collagen production in deeper skin layers, is known for being an effective, non-invasive option for skin tightening. Vivace integrates RF into your treatment, delivering controlled heat through the needles to further enhance collagen production and help you achieve smoother, firmer skin more quickly, while still enjoying a downtime-free treatment.
It’s virtually painless
Other microneedling pens and rollers can uncomfortably snag or tear skin during treatment. Vivace’s 36 superfine, insulated gold-tipped needles are applied with the assistance of a robotic motor, resulting in a smoother application and precise, even treatment with no tearing and little to no bleeding. Our patients find Vivace painless after receiving a pre-treatment numbing cream as their only form of comfort enhancement, and go right back to their normal day after treatment.
LED technology calms redness and gives collagen production an extra boost
Vivace rounds out the skin rejuvenating properties of microneedling and RF with LED light therapy, which helps to calm inflammation and neutralize bacteria that can lead to acne breakouts. The red and blue LED wavelengths in Vivace can also help speed healing time after each treatment, so the normal, temporary “sunburn” appearance after treatment fades faster and you experience results more quickly.
Microneedling Therapy with PRP
The PRP treatment is administered first and involves the application of a rich concentration of your own platelet rich plasma that is spun down via a centrifuge device. The Microneedling instrument uses the fractionated pattern of micro needles to drive the PRP into the dermal – epidermal junction. The Microneedling device allows us to vary the speed and depth of the treatment so we can safely handle all different areas of your face and body.
The PRP treatment is widely accepted as a very effective treatment and takes advantage of the body’s own powerful growth factors to stimulate healing and rejuvenation. Now when combined with Microneedling treatment, the PRP therapy has an effective delivery application to easily penetrate the surface of the skin and jump start the rejuvenation process. The treatment is easily administered and there is no clinical downtime.

What to Expect
Before and after your procedure…
Here's what to expect:
BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE
The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site with a sterilized needle unit. Before the procedure starts a topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin to ensure a comfortable experience. After the skin is numbed, our technicians gently move the Microneedling device over your skin to puncture the epidermis layers of the skin and create miniscule sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year, yet they close within less than an hour.
AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE
After the procedure your skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.
