Vivace RF is the new FDA cleared radiofrequency with microneedling procedure to treat fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin, reduce redness and pigmentation, minimize pore size, eliminate scarring and stimulate collagen and elastin to reveal brighter and healthy-looking skin.
What is Vivace RF?
- Mechanical stimulation through microneedling
- Heat stimulation through radiorequency
- Light stimulation through LED which has anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial and collagen stimulating properties
At Face & Body Boutique we also apply a skinbooster after the procedure which is a cocktail of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, anti-oxidents and peptides. The microchannels created by the needles allows the skinbooster to penetrate into the skin for an even more radiant glow.
How does it work?
What to expect?After an in depth consultation at Face & Body Boutique in Amsterdam, a treatment plan will be made depending on your goals for your skin. The skin will be cleansed and an anesthetic cream is applied. Due to the anesthesia, the procedure is very tolerable. Hyaluronic acid, anti-oxidants, and peptides are applied and left on overnight. One treatment takes between thirty minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the size of the treatment area. The number of sessions depends on the skin condition, but typically it is recommended to have 3 sessions in 4-6 week intervals with single maintenance treatments every 6-9 months.
Who is a good candidate?
Ideal candidates for Vivace® RF Microneedling may have mild-to-moderate signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, or enlarged pores, and are looking to improve skin texture and tone. Unlike many others, this treatment is FDA-approved to improve skin issues anywhere on the body, so it can work on stretch marks as well. Vivace RF® Microneedling provides impressive results for people of all ages with any skin type, including people with tanned or darker skin.
Is there any aftercare required?There is little to no downtime required after receiving Vivace® RF Microneedling. Once treatment is finished, you may be slightly pink to slightly red and puffy. This will resolve in about 24 hours. Makeup can be applied in 24 hours. It is recommended to avoid strenuous activities during the first 48-72 hours after treatment and avoid long showers or baths, which could trigger the face’s natural response to flush. This is to keep skin vessels closed and improve the efficacy of the treatment. You will be asked to leave the hyaluronic acid and peptide serum on overnight for the best results.
Is it safe?
The treatment is safe for all skin tones and skin types. However, patients with active acne, skin infections or cold sores cannot be treated. It is important to wear sunscreen after the treatment to reduce the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) after sun exposure. Darker pigmented skin tones are at higher risk of PIH so extra care should be taken with sun protection.
