As summer is approaching I know my time of loading up on my cosmetic skin care treatments is coming to a temporary end. I refrain from most treatments in the summer months to prevent any sun damage on my freshly treated skin. To go out with a bang I wanted something more powerful than the clear and brilliant laser I’ve been doing. I have tried traditional microneedling years ago and loved the results, so I decided to try Vivace (Vi-va-chee). Vivace is basically a newly evolved version of microneedling. The vivace machine works as more of a stamp with needles and contains radiofrequency along with light therapy. Can you say holy grail?!
How Vivace works
Vivace has 36 gold-plated micro-sized needles that can penetrate into the skin up to a depth of 3.5mm. As the micro-injuries are being created, RF (radio frequency) energy will flow through the needles stimulating healing by mass collagen production. All the while, the LED red light therapy is reducing inflammation and redness.

At the medspa, I was numbed for a lengthy 60 minutes making the treatment pain-free. After 3 passes on my face/neck/chest totaling about an hour’s time, a peptide cooling mask was placed on my skin. The mask felt amazing and calmed any warmth and redness I had.
I absolutely loved the Vivace treatment! My glow was instant and the redness had disappeared the next day. I took 48 hours off from the gym to avoid sweating. As for makeup, I waited about four days to apply again although I was assured I could apply it sooner. I just feel waiting longer is probably best. This is mostly to avoid scrubbing it off at the end of the day. (No exfoliation for a week). I avoided the sun the best I could during the first seven days and applied a generous amount of spf. I can already see improvments in my skin’s texture, tone, and pores.
In my area (Las Vegas) I paid $500 which I feel is a fair price considering the effectivness in just one Vivace treatment. It was pain free with practically no downtime. I plan to incorporate Vivace into my schedule at least twice a year going forward. I hope you enjoyed reading this Vivace review, let me know your thoughts or questions in the comment section!:)
