Microneedling Radiofrequency (RF) energy technology may be used for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin, and is ideal for those people who don’t want to have a surgical procedure. It is commonly used to treat the abdomen, under the arms, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck.
It is a non-invasive treatment that uses a device to deliver radio frequency (RF) energy into the deeper layers of skin through microneedling technology, which causes a heating action that immediately tightens skin tissues and structures.
Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten skin resulting in healthier, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Results vary depending on age and skin condition.

Is it painful?
While pain tolerance is individual, most people respond to microneedling radiofrequency treatment well and have little pain. Numbing cream can also be used to help reduce discomfort. The procedure is not accompanied by any significant side effects, though your skin will be red for 1-3 days. You can resume regular activities immediately after treatment, with no downtime or special follow-up care.
CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy)by Micro-needling
When it is applied to the skin, under local or topical anesthesia, sterile Micro-needle are used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin, which stimulate your own body to produce new collagen. These channels also improve the penetration of vitamins A and C creams. Vitamins A and C stimulate skin renewal, thereby making the skin appear fresher and younger.
WHM (Wound Healing Mechanisms) by RF energy
Since Micro-needles are insulated except the edge part(0.3mm), Micro-needle electrodes of VIVACE deliver bi-polar energy directly deep into dermis without damage in epidermis. Minimally invasive RF thermal energy creates fractional electrocoagulation in dermis which facilitate natural Wound Healing Process.
WHM promote the remodeling of collagen and wound contraction, which enhance skin laxity. Not only stimulate dermal remodeling but also RF inhibit sebaceous gland activity to improve acne.
