What is Vivace® RF Microneedling?

Vivace® RF Microneedling is minimally-invasive and designed to provide effective treatment while minimizing discomfort. It combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the power of radiofrequency energy with a specialized treatment serum and cooling peptide mask. The process of radiofrequency microneedling heats the tissue and stimulates collagen production in deep layers of the skin. This combination can effectively treat a wide array of skin types with wrinkles, discoloration, acne scarring, and other types of scarring with superior, natural-looking results for men who want healthier skin.

How Does Vivace® Work?

As we age, our skin’s natural collagen and elastin production begins to slow down. The handheld Vivace® device works by delivering radiofrequency energy as heat to the lower dermis layer of the skin via a series of tiny needles. The needles and heat create precise microdamage that triggers your body’s completely natural cell-regeneration process, stimulating the production of more collagen and elastin. Over time, your skin becomes firmer, plumper, and smoother. This is a far more comprehensive treatment than traditional microneedling alone.

What Areas Does Vivace® Target?

Vivace® for men can treat virtually anywhere the skin feels damaged or sagging. No matter what you’re after – tighter skin, smoother skin, less scarring, less stretch marks, or acne suppression – radiofrequency microneedling is one of the best treatment options available today. Because of its versatility, it can be used on both the face and body to treat the following:

– Wrinkles
– Sun damage
– Discoloration
– Acne scarring
– Stretch mark reduction
– Non invasive face lifts
– Anti-aging preventative skin tightening
– Skin tightening after weight loss
– Underarm sweat reduction

Best of all, Vivace® has no skin type requirements to be an ideal candidate. Unlike laser skin resurfacing treatments (ideally performed during months with less sun), Vivace® can be performed throughout the year. This non-surgical treatment comes with little to no downtime, with noticeable improvement after 2-3 days.

What You Can Expect From Your Session

Many patients say the treatment ranges from comfortable to virtually pain-free thanks to our topical numbing cream. You should feel little more than light pressure to the face, with the occasional spark here and there. Immediately after the treatment, your skin may appear similar to a moderate sunburn, but many patients report that they feel like they glow instead. You may experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch to the area being treated. The redness associated with treatment will diminish greatly within 24 hours.

WHY WE LOVE IT

"I love to recommend Uplifter because I enjoy having it done on myself. I have noticed a significant improvement in the texture and tone of my skin after only three treatments. My favorite is to combine it with the Spotless laser for overall complexion excellence in elasticity, smoothness and evenness."
