It happens to us all. We start off with radiant skin gleaming back at us. A few years later, it becomes a struggle to look past the fine lines, discoloration, and crepe-like texture of our features. Or perhaps you’ve struggled with acneic skin or other concerns. If you’re ready to return to radiance, our radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment might just be your solution. This innovative technology, made available to high-quality medspas like ours thanks to the Vivace® system, takes the benefits of the microneedling procedure to a whole new level – that your skin will love. If you’re considering RF microneedling treatments, read on for studies on procedure effectiveness, Vivace before and after photos, and information on what you can expect during and after the treatment.
What is Vivace RF Microneedling and How Does it Work?
Just like standard microneedling, the RF type stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin in the treated skin. More collagen and elastin means:
Enhanced skin tone and texture
All microneedling treatments use tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin. This prompts the body’s natural healing process, which is why collagen and elastin production are enhanced. When it comes to RF microneedling, the addition of radio frequency (produced by Vivace’s state-of-the-art machine) intensifies the positive effects by generating heat energy throughout the targeted skin layers. The applied radio frequency energy causes micro-tissue coagulation under your skin which in turn induces your body to heal itself thereby creating new collagen and elastin in the area which plumps and restructures the area, thereby doubling the skin-repair action. The procedure is virtually pain-free and FDA-approved.
The treatment’s effectiveness has been documented in several clinical studies. One conducted by the Department of Dermatology at CUTIS Academy of Cutaneous Sciences and published by The US National Library of Medicine found improvement in 99% of participants. The study also found that “Adverse effects were limited.”
And, as a dermatological review of 42 studies published by The American Society for Dermatoligical Surgery, Inc. concluded, “Radiofrequency microneedling is an effective intervention that can be used repeatedly and safely [...] Radiofrequency microneedling–induced dermal remodeling and neocollagenesis are slow and progressive but continue to improve even 6 months after treatment.”
In other words, most people experience visible results from RF microneedling that can continue to improve over time (and with minimal side effects). VIVACE RF Microneedling canb e used all over the body to produce rejuvenated and restructured skin. Sold on scheduling your Vivace session? Your reflection will thank you!
Vivace Before and After
Wondering what RF results actually look like? These Vivace before and after photos say it all… less redness, fewer wrinkles, and tighter skin that you can see for yourself.
These photos are truly worth a thousand words! The elimination of wrinkles around the eye and cheek areas is impressive. Also, notice the evened tone on the cheeks and the slight lift of the eyebrow. These results were reached after three treatments.
You’ll notice the reduction of redness in the “after” image above. The added tightening around the eye area reduces the look of fine lines and dark circles and discoloration has faded. The pores around the cheeks and nose are also greatly reduced in size. These results were reached after three treatments. The powerful skin transformations induced by Vivace’s RF microneedling treatment are undeniable. From wrinkles and scars, to redness and skin laxity (crepe skin), this gentle procedure pays dividends.
What to Expect During and After a Vivace Experience Treatment
Glosshouz beauty and wellness spa offers a luxuriously relaxing environment, top-of-the-line products, and certified medical professionals for medspa services. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a friendly face and elegant decor. A knowledgeable technician will promptly take you to a private room and talk you through your Vivace Experience RF microneedling treatment before beginning the service.
Before any mini needles make it near your treatment area, your technician will apply a topical numbing cream. The goal is to make the procedure virtually pain-free.
Using Vivace’s FDA-approved RF microneedling device, 36 tiny gold-plated, insulated needles will be deployed for your procedure. The needles will puncture target specific depth skin layers in order to repair and renew. (It sounds a little scary, but it’s a good thing. We promise!) At the same time, radiofrequency energy will be sent through the needles to further produce collagen and promote skin restructuring.
You’ll then have a soothing BOOST serum applied to your treatment area. Thanks to a combination of Binterin (CD99) peptides and a cooling solution, you’ll experience less inflammation, redness, irritation, and discomfort.
Finally, you’ll be sent home with a specialized after-treatment Weekly Soothing Masque to improve hydration and promote quicker healing.
Many patients see ongoing improvements in their skin for months, especially after several treatments. We suggest avoiding vigorous exercise for 48 hours after your treatment and refraining from makeup application to the treatment area for about 1-3 days. Exfoliation should be postponed for at least a week following RF microneedling.
Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
Most people are great candidates for Vivace’s RF microneedling treatment. RF is generally very effective for:
All skin types
Patients looking to reduce early or moderate signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines
Those hoping to reduce the look of acne scars, redness, and hyperpigmentation
People seeking smaller pores
Patients hoping to minimize cellulite and loose skin
However, as with any type of procedure, some factors indicate caution. You might consider an alternative treatment if:
You have a history of poor healing (such as keloid scarring)
You currently use Accutane (or have used it recently)
You have acne, cold sores, or a skin infection
You are pregnant or breastfeeding
You are receiving cancer treatments
But don’t forget, Glosshouz’s medical professionals can always recommend a safe and effective treatment – regardless of the caution factors listed above.
