This treatment is safe to be performed on all skin types.
Post treatment, patients can experience moderate redness, similar to a mild sunburn, that may last for a few hours after the treatment. There is no downtime and most patients return to their regular activities within 24 hours. However, you will need to keep your face clean and apply growth factor serums every hour, but other than that, you can return to normal activities. This treatment is ideal for candidates who are looking to:
- Alleviate Wrinkles and Fine Lines
- Tighten Skin
- Minimize the Appearance of Scarring
- Minimize Pore Size
- Improve Skin Texture and Tone
Upon arriving to your appointment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and then a topical anesthetic cream applied. Numbing takes between 30 – 45 minutes. Treatment settings will be customized to target your specific concerns. Typical treatment time will be between 30 - 45 minutes while RF energy and LED light is transmitted through tiny, gold-plated micro-needles. This will creates micro-injuries in the skin, which then causes a healing response.
Collagen and elastin are stimulated and as epithelization occurs, the top layer begins to feel smoother and look brighter. Compliments to your procedure may include a recovery mask, growth factor serum, harvested cells, or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Post-treatments, it is recommended that patients:
- Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours
- After the first 24 hours, apply and re-apply sunscreen regularly
- Avoid strenuous activities that cause excessive sweating (hot yoga, weight lifting, hot tubs, spin class, running, etc.)
- Avoid using cosmetics, retinols, or tretinoin on the treatment area for up to 24 hours

FAQS for Radio Frequency with Microneedling with Vivace
What does a Vivace treatment feel like?
Most people find the treatment to be comfortable, with little to no pain. Light pressure can sometimes be felt with a mild sunburn feeling after the numbing cream wears off. This is expected to dissipate between 2-12 hours.
How Many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments recommended depends on skin concerns. Most often, 3-4 treatments are suggested. These are performed to six weeks apart. These may include added therapies like PRP treatments. Patients will notice an immediate improvement in skin tone and texture. Additionally, improvement will continue over a three-month period as collagen regeneration increases over time.
What is RF?
Radio frequency energy heats the skin and stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. This can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. RF can also be used to heating and reduction of fat. RF-based devices like our EMSCULPT & EMTONE are non-invasive, they treat the laxity of skin, wrinkles, and can improve cellulite.
How long do the results last?
Results may vary, typically new collagen, once stimulated, will continue to build up to 12 weeks. Multiple procedures will increase improvement. Therefore, routine maintenance is recommended.
