How Does The Vivace Experience Work?


The Vivace® Microneedle RF device is the newest generation of radiofrequency microneedling and is FDA-cleared for your safety. This minimally-invasive treatment stimulates the natural production of collagen and is shown to be effective in alleviating facial wrinkles, fine lines, and tightening and toning the face and neck.

We start with the best-in-class Vivace® Microneedle RF device, designed for an incomparable, comfortable patient experience. We recommend a personally compounded numbing cream, the best available today, and our carefully developed recovery system ensures no one knows you just had a treatment. The results are immediate and also improve over time, giving you the best of both worlds.

If you are looking for the optimal results, look no more. Welcome to The Vivace Experience®.

What does the Vivace Experience® feel like?

Most physicians use a topical numbing cream to make the treatment comfortable. The majority of patients describe a feeling of light pressure with an occasional warming sensation. Other patients report a feeling of minor prickling.

Does microneedling hurt?

Patients should experience minimal pain during the Vivace® treatment. Typically, a numbing cream is applied 30 to 45 minutes before the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free. The Vivace® Microneedle RF was designed with patient comfort in mind.

How many Vivace Experience® treatments do I need?

Dr. Mueller will determine your specific treatment protocols but most often three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the optimal results patients are looking for.

How long does a Vivace® microneedling treatment take?

The pre-treatment numbing takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. The treatment itself takes about 45 minutes on the face. This means that the total treatment time will be between an hour and an hour and a half.

What kind of skin does microneedling work on?

Unlike laser treatments, microneedling and RF treatments can treat most skin tones and types, including tanned or dark skin. This gives Vivace® treatments a major advantage over other non-invasive skincare procedures.

How long does recovery take after microneedling?

Most patients will be ready to resume all daily activities within a day or two. This may be accelerated by using serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and a faster recovery. Most patients should avoid direct sunlight for a week following treatment. However, most patients are ready to go out on the town within a day or two of treatment with no indication they have had a cosmetic procedure.
