Vivace can be used to improve a number of skin issues, such as fine lines and wrinkles, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, pore size, skin laxity (loose skin), and overall texture and tone.
Before the treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to the areas being treated for 15-30 minutes prior to the treatment. Once the skin is numb the treatment is very comfortable. Vivace is designed to eliminate much of the discomfort of traditional microneedling. You may feel light pressure and occasional areas may be a little sensitive but most people find the treatment virtually pain-free.
The number of treatments required varies based on the skin concern and it's severity. In general, most individuals need 3-4 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
You may see some immediate results but it can take up to 3 months to see final results.
There is minimal if any downtime with the Vivace. There will some redness after the treatment, which usually lasts a few hours. The microneedling part of VIvace creates micro-channels in the skin which provides an opportunity to infuse the skin with PRP, serums or other cosmeceuticals. These channels will remain open for 4-6 hours, so during this time, you will be asked to refrain from applying any additional skin care products. After 6 hours, you can go back to your regular skincare routine.
Yes, Vivace is safe for all skin types.
