Vivace™ RF Needling
The Advanced RF Micro-needling
Let’s Face It!
We all want our skin to look its best, regardless of age, and this means looking natural too. Ageing gracefully is what we all strive to do and it’s what we at Infinity Skin Clinic want to help our patients with too.
There’s no way to completely prevent fine lines and wrinkles from setting in, but there are ways to slow down this process. The good news is that you don’t require surgery to achieve this either.
The Vivace RF device is a TGA-listed device that combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling. Improved patient comfort and results is just some of what sets this microneedling device apart.
Vivace RF Capabilities
Here is how the Vivace RF microneedling device works to produce younger, healthier-looking skin.
CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy)
To stimulate collagen production, microneedles create tiny channels deep within the skin. As the skin’s healing response is activated, collagen and elastin begin to increase. A topical anaesthetic is applied to decrease any discomfort.
RF (Radio Frequency)
When combined with microneedling, the radiofrequency energy also enhances the production of collagen. The result is a tightening effect that minimises fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves skin tone and texture, reduces pores and diminishes scars.
LED (Light Emitting Diode)
Lastly, LED light technology increases the skin’s moisture levels. The improved hydration paired with higher levels of collagen results in a more youthful appearance.
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten and lift the skin
- Diminish the appearance of scars
- Reduce pore size
- Improve skin texture and tone
Patients who want a safer, chemical-free way to increase collagen and elastin would benefit from Vivace sessions. What’s more, since this is a minimally invasive treatment, there’s no need to take time off work.
Treatments take about 45 minutes to complete, with an additional 30 minutes required for numbing. Once your skin is cleansed, treatment can commence. During your session, you won’t feel much, just some light pressure as the device moves across the treatment area.
VIVACE™ RF NEEDLING – Q & A:
Patients can expect to see results over the course of several weeks following their first session. The skin needs time to repair and rejuvenate, which is why results develop gradually.
Vivace RF microneedling treatments produce dramatic results but some patience is required to see a difference. Once the skin starts to heal and rejuvenate, the health and appearance of your skin gradually improves. The results of your treatment last around six months with the right aftercare and maintenance.
Directly after your Vivace treatment, you can expect mild swelling, redness and sensitivity, but this won’t last longer than a day or two. To ensure the best results, we recommend leaving your face makeup-free for the rest of the day. If makeup is a must, please use mineral variations. It’s important to keep your skin clean for the first few days until the micro-channels have healed. Stick to gentle, hydrating skincare products to avoid irritation. Wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is also essential, even after your skin has healed from the treatment.
We recommend a series of three to four sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. We do evaluate your skin first though, ensuring we create a treatment plan that’s tailored to your needs.
Both anti-wrinkle injections and microneedling are safe and minimally invasive treatments. The treatment you choose depends on your skin concerns and how deep the issue goes. Anti-wrinkle injections help iron out wrinkles and expression lines but microneedling works much deeper. It is possible to receive both treatments – you can discuss this with your skin therapist during your consultation.
While traditional microneedling treatments enhance collagen production, the Vivace system takes it one step further. The addition of radiofrequency energy helps break up damaged and dead skin cells. For example, if a patient has scarring, the RF energy breaks up the scar tissue instead of just adding more collagen. Vivace RF is a superior option because of the additional benefits it offers, including redness reduction.
