The Vivace micro needling system is the latest in skin rejuvenation technology. By combining the use of radio frequency, a gentle micro-needling system, and LED technology, Vivace is able to gently rejuvenate the skin for an improved appearance.
Minimised acne and scarring? You bet. Reduced lines and wrinkles? Absolutely. What about enlarged pores or even sagging skin? Vivace has the potential to treat all these skin ailments and more.
But what exactly does that mean for you? And how does Vivace stack up against previously tried-and-tested skin treatments? Here are 6 reasons why you should consider Vivace as part of your skincare routine.
1 – TREATMENT IS VIRTUALLY PAINLESS
30 minutes before the treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the face in order to increase the comfort level. At the most, you will feel a slight pressure to your face with some added warmth. In fact, many patients find the experience pleasant and comfortable!
Some patients may experience some bleeding or bruising. However, the risk is extremely low, and the effect itself is minimal.
2 – RESULTS GET BETTER WITH AGE
Just like a fine wine, the results of your Vivace treatment improve over time.
After the first few days of treatment, your face may appear slightly more blushed than usual. However, within less than a week, your face will both look and feel fresh and produce a youthful, radiant glow.
Why the wait? This is due to how the treatment is applied.
Vivace works by using radio frequency to heat the skin deep cells, before the needles are physically inserted into the cells, which results in a controlled trauma. From there, the skin undergoes a mild inflammatory reaction that is designed to increase blood flow, growth factors, and eventually form new collagen. Therefore, the recovery can take several days before you notice the incredible results.
Good news? The wait is worth it. Depending on the condition of your skin, you can expect one or more of the following results:
- Opened pores – making the skin easier to clean, hydrate, and moisturize
- Reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Tighter skin
- Reduction of scarring, stretch marks, tired looking skin, and much more
3 – SAFE, NON-SURGICAL
If you want to improve the appearance of your skin – without going under the knife – then a Vivace treatment could be for you.
How is the experience more pleasant than surgery? For starters, you don’t need to be put under anaesthesia. The only product applied is a gentle numbing cream to the face in order to increase comfort.
Secondly, a Vivace treatment is minimally invasive. So there are no incisions or stitches required. What about the micro-needle system? The Vivace device has 31 multilevel adjustments and pulse durations, ranging from 100ms to 800ms. This allows the needles to gently penetrate the cells – without breaking the skin – at a rate that is comfortable for you.
Best of all? There are minimal to no side effects after the procedure.
4 – LITTLE TO NO DOWNTIME
After treatment, the micro channels created by the Vivace device remain open for 4 – 6 hours.
During this time, it’s highly recommended that you don’t interfere with your face. Once the waiting period is over though, you are free to wash, scrub, moisturise, and apply makeup to your face as usual. Of course, your face will look better than ever!
5 – PERSONALISED TO YOUR NEEDS
Every person’s skin is unique. That’s why each Vivace treatment is personalised to suit your needs. So that you enjoy the best possible results.
Before the treatment, you will have an initial consultation with a professional skin therapist. They will assess the current condition of your skin, ask you relevant questions – i.e. related to your lifestyle, diet, and medical history –, ease your concerns, and give you a realistic expectation of what the Vivace treatment will do for you.
By doing this, the treatment can be customised in order to achieve the most desirable results for you.
How can the treatment be tailored?
One way is through the use of red or blue LED lights. Red LED lights help increase collagen production and enhance moisture levels for a more youthful look. While blue LED lights help to treat acne, seborrheic dermatitis, and kill bacteria that causes acne.
6 – TREATMENT ONLY TAKES ONE HOUR
Yes. In the span of a lunchbreak, you can visit your local skincare clinic, have a Vivace treatment, and head back to work or your social activities as normal. Your friends and co-workers will be none the wiser!
