Frequently Asked Questions


What Does a Rf Microneedling Treatment Feel Like?

Once the skin is numb, you may feel light pressure that tells you the device is doing its work. Most people find the treatment to be comfortable with virtually no pain or downtime.

Does RF Microneedling Hurt?

Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream, the best numbing cream available, is applied 30 to 45 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 was designed with patient comfort in mind.

How Do I Determine The Right Treatment For me?

It’s important to work with a trusted doctor 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. Be clear that the device used is only part of the process: the right serums and recovery system will enhance your results.

How Long Does RF Microneedling Take?

The actual treatment takes about 20-45 minutes depending on the area, with an additional 40 minutes needed for numbing.

What Is My Recovery Time

Physicians may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. By using the right products, our clients are ready for a night out with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.

What is RF?

Radio frequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

Most physicians find that 3 to 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, provide 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.

When Can I Wear Makeup?

Most patients go out within hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the combination of open channels, use our Sooth Weekly Mask and Sooth Recovery System. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup.

How Do I Get The Maximum Result From My Treatment

Start with the right device, the right treatment serum, coupled with the right recovery system. Follow the recommended recovery protocol once you get home, which consists of our Sooth Weekly Mask and the Sooth Recovery System (this includes a soothing spray, cleanser, and balm). Additionally, abstinence from the sun and three to five days off from working out and you are well on your way to maximizing The Vivace Experience™ for yourself. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.

What Kind Of Skin Does It Work On?

Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.

How Long Does The Result Last

Everyone is different, the collagen you make is your own and continue accelerated production over three months. Results improve over time.
