Vivace Q & A

What is radiofrequency microneedling?

Radiofrequency and microneedling are two technologies that Dr. Schneider uses to address a variety of skin concerns. A closer look at each approach shows how it can benefit you:

  • Radiofrequency: ideal if you want to tone and tighten saggy, loose skin on your neck, jaw, face, eyes, arms, or abdomen.
  • Microneedling: thin needles “injure” your skin to provoke its natural healing abilities.

Radiofrequency and microneedling come together with Vivace as radiofrequency energy rushes into the tiny channels that the microneedling creates in your skin. The dual power of each technology working together makes your skin softer, smoother, and plumper.

What issues are treated with Vivace radiofrequency microneedling?

Vivace is a perfect choice for men and women who want to minimize:

  • Stretch marks
  • Acne pocks
  • Scars
  • Wide pores
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Saggy, loose skin

How does the radiofrequency microneedling with Vivace work?

Since radiofrequency microneedling with Vivace is a nonsurgical procedure, you’ll only need some numbing cream on your target treatment areas. Dr. Schneider waits for the cream to take effect before she guides the Vivace wand along your face, neck, or other treatment area.

From the wand, a collection of ultra-tiny needles swiftly penetrate your skin and shuttle in the heat energy. The Vivace features alternating LED lights that boost collagen production and interrupt acne development.

The topical cream keeps you from feeling pain, though you may feel pressure during the session.

How long do the results from radiofrequency microneedling with Vivace last?

Dr. Schneider meets with you to determine exactly how many treatments you need to get the best results. Most people benefit from two or three Vivace sessions. You’ll begin to see results immediately after your initial treatment and your results just get better over time. In general, the results from Vivace last six months to a year.
