The all-in-one device for your skin concerns
Vivace RF is a minimally invasive procedure that uses microneedling to deliver collagen stimulating radio frequency deep in the skin. The tiny needles penetrate the skin in a stamping motion; when the needles are fully extended, they deliver a pulse of radio frequency.

Why do we love Vivace RF?
The painless experience, the results, the customized treatments, and the RESULTS! Vivace RF truly addresses almost every skin concern! It can be paired with Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRP, but better) for a glowy boost and added regeneration. Vivace RF can be done on ANY skin type with risk of hyperpigmentation, unlike resurfacing lasers like Fraxel and CO2. Instead of just treating the surface of the skin, Vivace also treats the deeper tissue.
We work with you to customize your treatment by choosing the depth of needles (might go deeper on areas with thicker skin), the strength of the RF, red light therapy or blue light therapy, and completing multiple passes over areas that need a little more love.
Vivace's unique microneedles provide a relaxing treatment process with varying levels of penetration. The insulated needles are also used to deliver light thermal radiofrequency beneath the first layer of skin, correcting loose skin and stimulating your body's natural healing process. Downtime is minimized, since the energy is delivered beneath the first layer of the dermis.
The Vivace treatment
The administration of topical gel is the first step in most Vivace RF microneedling sessions. The gel is designed to numb the skin while also making the microneedling process easier.
The treatment itself takes about 30 to 60 minutes. You will feel a tiny vibration during the session with minimal discomfort.
We first use the handpiece to treat each target area in an oscillating motion, then follow up with a second pass in a similar pattern to complete the treatment. As a result, the entire area receives consistent and thorough treatment. The Vivace system, unlike other devices, has 31 options that allow us to tailor the therapy and obtain the maximum level of precision.
You may experience mild redness and discomfort for up to 24 hours after your Vivace RF treatment. The therapy requires little to no downtime/recovery time. You are free to continue your daily activities immediately following your visit.
For a week after your Vivace session, you should apply a topical lotion containing no harsh chemicals on a daily basis. This microneedling procedure can be combined with laser treatments and collagen induction therapy for the best rejuvenation outcomes.
Following their initial Vivace session, patients should expect to see benefits after a few weeks. Because the skin takes time to mend and regenerate, benefits appear gradually. Treatments with Vivace RF microneedling produce spectacular results, but it will take time to notice a difference.
The health and look of your skin steadily improve after the skin begins to mend and regenerate following Vivace treatment. With proper aftercare and maintenance, the effects of your treatment may last up to six months.

How many treatments will I need?
Most patients benefit from 3-5 treatments, depending on the severity of the concern. For skin-tightening, results can be seen at 3-4 months. This is standard with any radio frequency device as the skin needs time to contract and build collagen. For more superficial concerns, immediate improvement is noticeable as well as long-term results.
Who is a good candidate for Vivace RF?
Anyone! Vivace RF can tighten moderate loose skin, improve the appearance of acne scarring, shrink pores, help improve stretch marks, and smooth crepey skin commonly seen above the knees or on the chest. Vivace is the perfect treatment for those looking for facial rejuvenation before an event or skin tightening with zero downtime.
