What is the recovery time?

With Vivace, there is no downtime. Just be sure to follow the aftercare instructions you are given (serums and recovery protocols) to experience the best results and faster recovery.


How long do results last?

Everyone is different, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next 6 months as results improve over time.


What kind of skin does it work on?

Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.


Are there any restrictions after treatment?

You should avoid being out in the sun for a while, and take 3 to 5 days off from working out.


How do you get the maximum result from your treatment?

To get the maximum result from your 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 that includes a soothing recovery balm.


How soon after treatment can you wear make-up?

Dr. Pero recommends that you wait at least 6 hours before you apply make-up, and ideally wait until the next morning. Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no make-up at all. To maximize the Vivace treatment during the first 4 to 6 hours, use the Vivace Soothe Mask and Soothe Recovery System.


How long does the treatment take?

The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.


How many treatments do you need?

The number of treatments you may need depends wholly on the aesthetic results you desire. Generally, though, three treatments spaced 4 to 10 weeks apart, provide patients with optimal results.


What does it feel like?

With a numbed face, you may feel nothing more than light pressure to the face.


Does it hurt?

The Vivace Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience.

With the use of this numbing cream, many patients have found the treatment to be in the range of comfortable to virtually pain-free.
