What is Vivace?
Vivace is a skin revitalisation treatment, designed to gently heat beneath the epidermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen. This is ideal for reducing pore size, eliminating acne scars, alleviating facial wrinkle, and tightening and toning the face, neck, hands and body.
The Vivace device is quite unique, as it utilises a combination of microneedling, radiofrequency and LED to achieve a variety of outcomes.
Microneedling: Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, uses very fine needles to create tiny micro channels deep within the skin. This works to activate the skin’s natural healing response, which results in an increase in collagen and elastin production.
Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency energy works to provide heat that further boosts the production of collagen. This creates a tightening effect on the skin and optimises overall skin revitalisation results.
LED Light: Vivace skin treatments also make use of LED light technology to increase the skin’s moisture levels. Red LED is ideal for collagen stimulation, while blue LED light aims to target bacteria and active acne.
What to expect during your Vivace treatment
Vivace treatments are typically described as being quite comfortable. Treatment sessions take approximately 45 minutes to complete, however a numbing cream will be applied 30 minutes prior to treatment.
Once the skin has been numbed and cleansed, we can begin your treatment. You will not feel much during your Vivace treatments, with the exception of some light pressure as the device moves across the treatment area.

Frequently Asked Questions
While the micro-channels in your skin heal, it is important to keep your skin clean for the first few days after treatment. This means leaving your face free of makeup and sticking to gentle, hydrating skincare products in order to avoid irritation. After any skin treatment, it is essential that you wear sunscreen on a daily basis, even once your skin has healed.
