Typically, a numbing cream is applied 30 to 40 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience throughout the treatment. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free. The Vivace Ultra™ was designed with patient comfort in mind.
It’s important to work with a trusted provider who uses FDA-cleared devices to give you confidence in its safety and efficacy. Seek a patient experience that has been designed to be the most comfortable experience with the greatest results. Understand that the device used is only part of the process; the right serums and recovery system will enhance your results.
Radiofrequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to a tighter, more youthful appearance. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients experience optimal results.
The linear array ultrasound technology allows providers to visually map the skin of each patient to develop a personalized treatment in each layer of the skin, delivering robust efficacious results. Your provider will be able to visualize the depth of skin layers to determine the optimal needle depth. This eliminates guesswork and ensures improved outcomes.
Most providers find that 3 to 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, provides the optimal experience for patients. While the results are often immediate for skin tone and texture, there is also improvement over a three-month period as the process of collagen regeneration increases over time.
Most patients go out within hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the combination of open channels, use our Soothe Mask and Boost Serum. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup.
Follow the recommended recovery protocols from your provider once you get home. We also recommend the use of our Soothe Mask and Boost Serum. Additionally, minimize your exposure to the sun and schedule a series of treatments to maximize the Vivace Experience®.
