What is MicroNeedling?

MicroNeedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin that triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size and stretch marks. MicroNeedling is a safe, chemical-free treatment to trigger new collagen. When combined with radio frequency, it becomes the newest revolution in contouring and tightening for the face, neck and body.

Vivace and Secret Fraxis RF combines targeted micro-needling with radio-frequency energy to help stimulate and tighten the skin.

The benefits of Vivace and Secret Fraxis RF MicroNeedling include smaller pore size, reduced secretion of skin oils (seborrhea), minimize appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth scars, improved delivery and absorption of medical-grade skin care products and reduced occurrence of acne.

What is involved in the treatment?

The treatment itself consists of placing a hand piece against the surface of the skin and activating radio frequency energy. The hand piece consists of a multiple needle head that is accurately applied within a specified depth.

As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This in effect creates a solid foundation of new dermal volume.


What are the benefits?

Reduce pore size
Reduce oil levels in the skin (seborrhoea)
Help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines
Enhance delivery and effectiveness of medical grade skincare creams

Frequently Asked Questions

With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with occasional, light sparking feeling.

It’s important to work with a trusted doctor who uses an FDA-cleared device to give you confidence in its safety and reliability. 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.

Radio frequency (RF) provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art MicroNeedling, patients have experienced optimal results over other more painful MicroNeedling treatments.

The clear, micro-channels created remain open for four to six hours, creating opportunity to supplement the skin with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results. After that time period, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.

Many patients find three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience they are looking for. Results can take up to three months to fully appear as the process of collagen regeneration increases over time.

The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed prior for numbing.

Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and you may even wait until the next morning.

We are able to treat most skin colors, including tanned skin and dark skin.

Everyone is different, but the collagen you make is your own. Over time you will likely engage in another series of treatments.

Actual Patient Testimonials Following Their MicroNeedling Experience:

“I had the “Vivace Experience” about a month ago and was thrilled! I’ve had other MicroNeedling procedures before, but wasn’t sure what to expect with this device. The clinician asked me several times during the process to report my pain level between 1 and 5. Repeatedly I had difficulty answering because most of the time I wasn’t feeling anything that I would label as “pain,” despite the fact that she had put the machine on its maximum settings. Immediately following the treatment, I went out to dinner (without makeup) and friends were commenting on how great my skin looked. In the weeks since, I’ve noted positive changes and feel that the benefits of the Vivace seem to be much greater than what I’ve experienced in the past with regular MicroNeedling.”
