What does it feel like?
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with occasional, light sparking feeling.
Does it hurt?
Our 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 many treatments do I need?
Many physicians find three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience patients are looking for. Single treatment protocols are available depending on experience desired.
How long does it take?
The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.
When can I wear makeup?
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the Vivace™ treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Soothe Weekly Mask and Soothe Recovery System. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and you may even wait until the next morning.
How do I get the maximum result from my treatment?
Start with the right device, with the right treatment serums with the right recovery system. Follow the recommended recovery protocols once you get home. Stay out of direct sunlight for three to five days , abstain from working out during this time, 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, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next six months as results improve over time.
What is my recovery time?
Physicians may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. After the time period, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.
