1What is Microneedling and What Can It Do for You?
Microneedling represents a brilliant combination of technology and your body’s own natural ability to rejuvenate itself. Microneedling uses a system of tiny needles to make microscopic holes in the skin. The process stimulates the skin to produce more collagen, which naturally firms up the skin. This process, called collagen induction therapy, leaves your skin stronger, smoother, and looking younger and healthier.
As we age, our skin naturally tends to produce less collagen. This reduced production leads to skin that looks older and rougher with less shine and elasticity. Microneedling is a non-invasive way to stimulate your skin’s own collagen production.
When you get Vivace microneedling from our experts, you benefit not only from great results, but also from the latest technology that Vivace offers. The process involves 36 gold-tipped needles that do the work necessary to stimulate your skin’s collagen production without much downtime, if any at all.
In addition to the remarkable results you experience with microneedling, you also get the added benefit of convenience. Because microneedling is non-invasive, you can get back to your routine with little to no downtime. The entire process usually takes less than two hours, and the actual microneedling therapy is completed in around 30 minutes with additional time for set up and additional consultation.
2Who Can Benefit from Microneedling?
Microneedling is great for many people and a variety of skin issues. For those wanting to reduce spots, roughness, and other signs of aging, microneedling is a wonderful alternative to other treatments that can be either less effective, more invasive, or both.
Microneedling is also great for treating acne scars and other signs of skin damage. The collagen production that the treatment stimulates can reduce the appearance of scars and promote healthy looking—and feeling—skin.
While microneedling is primarily for treating scars and other damage to the skin on your face, it is also effective for treating stretch marks on other areas of the body.
Microneedling is primarily for people of good overall health with skin conditions like acne scars, aging, stretch marks and more. It may not be the right time to seek microneedling if you are pregnant or currently taking certain acne medications.

3Where Should You Get Your Microneedling Treatment?
Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that is safe for people in good health. However, it should always be done by a skilled and qualified professional. You should not accept any substitutes in terms of the qualifications of your skin care provider.
You also shouldn’t accept any substitutes in terms of the products and services you seek for collagen induction therapy. Professional microneedling using industry-leading products like Vivace are far superior to home care rollers and other over-the-counter products.
For best results, your skin care provider can offer a series of microneedling treatments. Your skin will respond with the desired amount of collagen production after a few visits. Your skin care professional will help you determine the number and timing of treatments that will be right for you.
