Vivace® RF Microneedling
Perceptions Aesthetic Spa takes pride in offering our clients the very best in non-invasive cosmetic treatment options. Vivace® Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is an FDA-cleared, minimally invasive treatment that adds radiofrequency technology to significantly boost the amount of collagen and elastin produced in the application area.
This innovative, advanced-level skin rejuvenation treatment combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency, expanding the benefits of Vivace® beyond what either type of treatment could offer alone. Patients will experience both epidermal resurfacing and deeper dermal remodeling.

How it Works
The Vivace® uses thirty-six insulated, gold-tipped needles attached to a robotic motor that produces fast and even insertions into the skin. With each insertion, microneedle electrodes deliver bipolar radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis to facilitate the natural wound healing process and tighten the skin. In time, these tiny injuries will stimulate collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and soften acne scars.
Benefits of Vivace® RF Microneedling
Future results will ultimately depend on your age, skin condition, and overall health. There are numerous skin conditions Vivace® can resolve, including:
After Your Treatment
Vivace® is minimally invasive, and while you will leave your procedure looking slightly flush with mild redness and irritation, many patients have reported that this quickly subsides. They often return to work the same day. We recommend that you do not apply anything to the treated areas other than post-treatment mask, post-procedure treatment serum, or PRP for 6 hours following treatment. Your skin will also be more susceptible to UV, so we do encourage you to wear sunscreen.
Vivace® Microneedling RF with PRP
Many patients opt to have PRP added to their Vivace® treatment to enhance their healing process and stimulate skin renewal. PRP contains proteins, including growth factors and cytokines, that help skin tissue repair itself. Overall, PRP can potentially boost the effectiveness of your Vivace® procedure.
Vivace® Microneedling RF FAQ
With our Vivace® device, most patients experience mild to no discomfort. The procedure is not actually painless, so the effectiveness of the personalized compounded numbing cream is very important to the overall patient experience.
Depending on the number of areas you cover, on average, Vivace® treatments take approximately 45 minutes. It also takes around 45 minutes to numb the treatment areas prior to the procedure and 20 minutes for procedure post-care.
Our experienced, licensed professionals consult with patients before moving forward with the recommendation of Vivace® treatments. We understand all patient needs vary, and our goal is to suggest the best treatment method for your individual needs. We seek to offer our patients an experience that’s been designed to be the most comfortable and provide the greatest results.
Radiofrequency (RF) provides heat that stimulates collagen production, which leads to younger-looking, tighter skin. When combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients can experience optimal results.
Typically, three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart provide the results patients are looking to achieve. Single treatment protocols are available depending on the patient’s desired experience. Vivace® is only part of the process, and adding the right serums between treatments, as well as our recommended recovery system, will enhance your journey to the best skin possible.
Because Vivace® delivers its radiofrequency energy to the skin’s deeper layers, it’s safe and effective for most almost all skin tones, with little risk of hyperpigmentation.
While everyone’s experience is different, Vivace® treatments stimulate the body’s healing process and the natural production of collagen and elastin, typically delivering results over time. Many patients notice their results in as little as one visit. Your skin will continue to improve over time, and once optimal results are achieved, touch-ups will maintain your new results.
