What Are the Benefits of Vivace® RF Microneedling?

Beautiful skin doesn’t happen by accident. Microneedling is a powerful option for smoothing, brightening, and enhancing the skin’s appearance. At Perceptions Aesthetic Spa, we proudly offer one of the best options available for non-surgical microneedling treatments: Vivace® RF.

This treatment combines the skin rejuvenation benefits of microneedling with added Radiofrequency Energy (RF). Results from Vivace® Microneedling rival powerful laser treatments, without downtime or recovery.

Some of our favorite advantages of RF microneedling:

Safe for Almost All Skin Tones

Unlike most laser treatments, Vivace® microneedling can be used to treat most skin types, including tan or dark skin. The radiofrequency energy used in this treatment is delivered deep within the skin via 36 insulated, gold-tipped needles via a robotic step motor. Since the energy is delivered to the skin’s deeper layers via controlled depth settings, this treatment is safe for most skin types, with minimal risk of hyperpigmentation.

Improves a Variety of Skin Conditions

Vivace® RF Microneedling is versatile and an ideal treatment for many skin concerns and conditions. We regularly use this treatment to address:

  • Acne scars
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Dull skin tone

Why is this treatment so adaptive and versatile? The device encourages skin rejuvenation through multiple pathways. The microneedles penetrate the skin, creating controlled damage and encouraging a healing response. The RF energy helps to remodel tissue and encourages collagen development. Many patients report a dramatic improvement in the appearance of their skin after treatment.

Minimal Downtime

Life is busy and many of our patients express they don’t have time to spend weeks in recovery after cosmetic treatment. At Perceptions Aesthetic Spa, we have a reputation for providing patients with highly effective aesthetic treatments in a professional environment, that do not require surgery and allow our clients to quickly return to their daily activities.

For patients that want dramatic skin improvement with minimal downtime, microneedling is one of our favorite treatment options.

Quick, In-Office Procedure

While times will vary depending on the areas treated, we typically tell clients to plan on spending approximately 2 hours with us when they come in for treatment. Numbing cream is applied about 45 minutes before the procedure begins. This ensures a comfortable treatment experience. The actual treatment itself takes approximately 45 minutes (may vary depending on the size and number of areas receiving treatment), and clean-up and post-procedure care require approximately 20 minutes.

Pairs Easily with Other Skin Treatments

Microneedling creates a dramatic skin transformation on its own. Imagine the results we can achieve when we partner Vivace® RF Microneedling with our other skin-enhancing treatments.

One of our favorite pairings for microneedling is PRP (platelet rich plasma). PRP is a concentrated plasma solution, extracted from a patient’s own blood. It contains growth factors, cytokines, and other proteins that aid in skin healing and growth. PRP has the potential to boost the effectiveness of treatment and improve results.
