VIVACE RF (Radio Frequency) Microneedling - Advanced Technology
Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, Vivace RF microneedling combines the power of radiofrequency or heat energy with microneedling practices. Using sterile microneedles, your provider gently inserts the pins into the surface of the skin where the radio frequency energy is released into the lower layers to cause microinjuries and tissue collagenesis to restore youthful and more even skin appearance. The RF waves boost the production of collagen and elastin while using electrocoagulation to heal the wounds.
Vivace RF microneedling is performed most often on the face, but it can also help revitalize the skin on your neck and body areas such as knees, stomach, upper arms, and other areas. Your esthetician can help you figure out the best treatment areas to focus on at your visit.
VIVACE RF Microneedling provides the amped up benefits of the following:
Dark circles under the eyes
Crepe skin anywhere on the body
Reduces pore sizes
Evens skin tone and texture
Tightens skin in the treatment areas
Causes collagenesis to thicken and plump skin to a youthful appearance
VIVACE RF Microneedling for the face can be provided with or without the VIVACE Expereince Kit which includes the BOOST recovery serum and the weekly treatment facial sheet mask. VIVACE RF Microneedling can be safely performed on all skin types, light to dark, and various ethnicities. A series of 3-4 procedures spaced 4 weeks apart is typically recommended for best results. A treatment once every 6 months to a year is recommended to maintain. Your service provider will discuss the procedure with you and determine if you are a good candidate.
MICRONEEDLING, VIVACE RF MICRONEEDLING with or without PLASMA OPTION
Differences between: Microneedling and VIVACE RF Microneedling, and Plasma Treatment Option Add-on
Microneedling & Benefits Microneedling with a motorized skinpen pin insertion to the epidermis works to repair damaged epidermal skin and can make skin look youthfully smoother by collagen induction and mechanical restructuring. Microneedling with a skinpen creates a mechanical injury of the epidermis and is great to help to resurface the skin, smooth the outer skin's look and feel, and reduce uneven appearance.
VIVACE RF Radio Frequency Microneedling & Benefits: The VIVACE RF Microneedling device provides the latest technology for more robust skin rejuvenation with added benefits of skin tightening. The addition of Radio Frequency (electrical energy) emmitted through the insultated pins during the RF Microneedling treatment is provided with the VIVACE device. This allows for the needles which are inserted precisely to emit radio frequency energy between the pins under your skin. The RF energy generates heat in the skin which causes tissue ablation (vaporization) and coagulation of blood cells to tighten and reshape the dermis to create a thicker, more plump youthful skin appearance. This treatment can be used effectly to treat scarring, lines and wrinkles, crepe skin, pores, uneven texture.
Benefits of Plasma Add-on: The optional use of Plasma treatment, which is the basis for the “Vampire Facial”, utilizes growth factors found in concentrated plasma from the patient’s own blood and these are important for new cell generation and cellular functions, such as creating new collagen and elastic fibers. This added organically derived boost serum can be used to promote healthier looking overall skin and tissue repair. Can be ijected under eyes to help with dark circles and restoring youthful appearance.
Minimally invasive - Downtime for the above procedures is minimal. While everyone is different, most people can use cosmetics by the second day, resume skincare and normal activities by day 4.
Note: Microneedling & RF Microneedling with or without blood plasma therapy is safe for all skin types and skin tones. A series of 3-4 (RF) Microneedling with or without PRP procedures one month apart is recommended for best results based on patient concerns. Recommend one treatment every six months to a year to maintain results.

More info about Plasma with Microneedling - also known as "Vampire Facial"
Plasma Treatment with Microneedling services at Glosshouz are performed by medical professionals (trained nurses). The appointment typically takes about one hour to complete.This service incorporates the Microneedling process but includes the additional benefit of applying one's own blood plasma with contains your own concentrated growth factors to the treatment areas for increased efficacy.
Skin rejuvenation is accomplished with this procedure. Old and frayed deformed collagen in your skin is associated with wrinkles, acne scars, other scars, large pores and stretch marks. Microneedling works to repair damaged skin and can make skin look youthfully thicker, reducing the signs of aging. The use of Plasma, which is the basis for the “Vampire Facial”, with the microneedling process dramatically improves the results. The reason for this is because growth factors found in concentrated plasma substance are important for new cell generation and cellular functions, such as creating new collagen and elastic fibers. Growth factors come in many different varieties and are extremely abundant in our platelets. The plasma substance (more on what that is below) with growth factors is both injected into your face (optionally) and used in conjunction with the microneedling process which creates micro-channels in your skin. Tiny microneedling punctures allow platelets to enter the skin. Once the platelets are deep in the skin their granules are activated and they induce extra collagen development and new skin cells. This has a profound effect on the skin structure and the capability of our skin to heal itself.
Downtime for this procedure is minimal. Most people are able to use cosmetics by the second day. By stacking the microneedling services in a series of four treatments four weeks apart there is an additive effect in collagen production and collagen contraction.
This type of harvesting plasma for treatment is currently used in the medical field for multiple types of therapy including pain, joint injury and arthritis, hair loss, stretch marks and scar reduction, facial rejuvenation and other things. When used for facial rejuvenation, plasma with microneedling improves skin tone and structure, treats and improves acne scarring, treats fine lines and wrinkles, improve stretch marks, and sun damage.
Commonly treated areas with Plasma include:
Crow’s feet beside the eyes
Under eyes dark circles
Thinning hair on the scalp or temples for men or women
Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma therapy can be safely performed on all skin types and ethnicities. A series of 4 -6 procedures 4 weeks apart is typically recommended based on your skin concerns. Your service provider will discuss the procedure with you and determine if you are a good candidate.
What is the difference between Microneedling and Plasma with Microneedling Services?
Microneedling-only Treatment for Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling services at Glosshouz are performed by a certified Esthetician and procedure will take about one hour to perform. The Microneedling process itself, involves the use of an advanced Automated Fractional Microneedling Device (a motorized skin "pen") that achieves thousands of controlled variable-depth microchannels into the skin in just a few seconds. The process we use incorporates disposable needle cartridges for a sterilized and safe technique.
The micro-injuries created by the microneedling device work to stimulate the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. This helps to reverse and even prevent the signs of aging. Microneedling basically works the same way lasers do, only the skin is injured mechanically instead of using heat or light. The major benefit is that downtime is minimal. There may be some pin-prick bleeding during the treatment which is normal and temporary. There may be some mild discomfort during the procedure. Topical anesthetic cream is typically used for tolerance.
Microneedling on your face, neck/chest or other areas is effective for and to treat:
helping to stimulate and build collagen
fine lines and wrinkles
Microneedling can be safely performed on all skin types and ethnicities. A series of 4 Microneedling procedures four weeks apart is typically recommended for best results. Your service provider will discuss the procedure with you and determine if you are a good candidate.
MICRONEEDLING & Plasma Treatment FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Plasma used for the treatment?
Plasma is a fraction of your own blood drawn out and spun down to create a concentrated plasma substance with platlets and then reapplied topically and injected to create improved tissue health.
Platelets are very small cells in your blood that are involved in the clotting process. As they organize in the clot they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells to repair the damaged area. When used in injured or sun- and time-damaged tissue they can induce a remodeling of the tissue to a more healthy and younger state.
What Can It Be Used For?
Your blood plasma can be used in speeding healing of open wounds, in tendon and other musculoskeletal injuries and in problems like arthritis. This treatment is used for benefits by orthopedic surgeons, for hair loss treatments and for facial rejuvenation.
This treatment can effectively be used to improve skin texture, lines and wrinkles. By placing it into the deeper skin layer fibroblasts and other cells can be stimulated to a more youthful function. Under eye areas and necks can show dramatic improvement. Lines around the lips can also improve.
Who Will Benefit From It?
Anyone with an open wound or injury, especially taking time to heal will improve speedily with plasma therapy.
Also anyone who is using cosmetic treatments for lines, wrinkles, poorer skin condition and general skin reconditioning can be improved with plasma therapy. Persons who have had problems tolerating products for these sorts of procedures will be encouraged by the fact they are using purely their own cells and tissues. The most dramatic results so far have been in the crepey skin problems in areas such as under eyes, necks and decolletage areas as well as for premature hair thinning, hair loss. Human growth factors in the plasma provide an effective and natural treatment for persons wanting to address thinning hair on the scalp.
How Is It Done?
A tube (or two depending on areas to be treated) are drawn off in much the same way blood is taken for blood testing. The blood sample is spun for around for a period in a centrifuge to produce the plasma substance.
The substance is then drawn from the tube into a small syringe. A small amount of calcium chloride solution is added to the syringe to stimulate the process. Once ready, the plasma substance is then injected in the cleaned anaesthetised skin in either small lines or tiny dots in the deeper skin layer.
For a Facial Rejuvenation Treatment, the substance can be both injected into areas of the face and also microneedled topically into the facial skin. For Hair Restoration Treatment, small amounts of the plasma substance are injected into the thinning hair area in a 1 cm pattern on the scalp or temples or other area as needed.
For facial rejuvenation or for hair restoration improvements your body's plasma is instilled into the treatment areas for four sessions usually spaced 1 month (4 weeks) apart.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
For cosmetic applications for face or for hair loss treatment, four treatments are recommended. Plasma treatments for facial rejuvenation or hair restoration are typically completed about 4 weeks apart.
How Quickly Do The Results Show?
To those people wanting improvement in skin texture and structure, they may be aware within a week of some early changes. But the effect and improvement is also a gradual process with changes continuing to show for three to six months after the treatment. For Hair Restoration treatments, the effects can start to be seen 3-4 weeks after the first treatment.
How Long Does It Last?
The effect has been shown to last about two years. This can be different for different people.
Can The Treatment Be Repeated over time?
As you are using your own body cells there is no problem with continued use. Some people elect to do a single session each year to boost and lengthen the effect of the initial group of treatments.
Are There Side Effects?
Since the patient is using their own biological material there is virtually no risk of allergic or other adverse reaction to the plasma substance. After the procedure, there may be a short-lasting pinkness or quite a redness of the skin. Bruising is also a possibility. Flaking or sloughing of the skin is also common a couple of days after the Microneedling procedure. Most people are able to return to work the following day (with a little makeup applied). All side effects may take a week or so to resolve.
