The epidermis is very prone to pigmentation problems if not protected. Knowing this, we prefer RF Microneedling which uses coated needles that protect the top layer of skin (epidermis) from heat injury. As a result, our process eliminates the risk of pigmentation or discolouration. Lasers, however cannot avoid the top layer of the skin. This is why laser treatments are riskier for tan or dark skin. RF Microneedling, on the other hand, is safe and effective for any skin colour.
Prior to Vivace treatment we offer patients a medical consultation to educate, discuss concerns, find out medical history and consider the most beneficial and safest treatment options.
