Vivace vs Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Combining some of the smallest needles and radiofrequency technology brings RF Microneedling. It’s a minimally invasive solution to enhance skin tone and texture, but it doesn’t stop there. RF microneedling emits energy waves that reduce the early signs of aging, treat scars, and even help with excessive sweating.

Growing older might be an inescapable fact of life, but the physical side effects don’t need to be permanent. Whether you’re struggling with acne marks, texture inconsistencies, complexion issues, or other aspects of your appearance you’re unhappy with, you should consider Morpheus8 or Vivace microneedling.

With treatments you can customize, RF microneedling stimulates collagen production for gradual results and minimal downtime. Vivace and Morpheus8 are fractional therapies that revitalize the face and body for youthful radiance.

Which is Better, Morpheus8 or Vivace?

When it comes to choosing a treatment for yourself, one isn’t necessarily better than the other, as both eliminate visible skin imperfections and trigger the body’s natural repair response. But you might like the results better with one than the other, depending on your skin concerns and budget.

No matter which RF microneedling you decide on, your results start to show between one and three months after your initial treatment plan is complete. You can continue improving your skin by adding treatments as necessary.

The budget-friendly option is Vivace, although it is important to remember that its results are less dramatic than Morpheus8. If you have less severe signs of aging to address, then Vivace could be the perfect solution. However, if you’re looking for the premier treatment that offers dramatic results, you get what you pay for with Morpheus8.

Difference Between Microneedling and RF Microneedling

Traditional microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. Microneedling involves a specialized device that rolls over the skin, creating controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the skin’s natural healing process.

Adding the radiofrequency element to traditional microneedling amplifies the production of proteins and enzymes that improve the skin, like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The RF energy also heats underlayers of the skin, further enhancing skin tightening results.

Some of the most popular problems that you can treat with RF microneedling include:

  • Dark spots
  • Stretch marks
  • Pitted scars
  • Ice pick scars
  • Under eye bags
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Loose skin

No matter which microneedle RF treatment you choose, there is no downtime, and repeat sessions only enhance the quality of results. Plus, pairing treatments like Microneedling and Botox makes creating a comprehensive non-surgical facial rejuvenation plan easy.

Many patients choose to incorporate dermal fillers, Botox, or Kybella injections as complementary choices for their treatment plan (although they are not administered on the same day as each other for optimal healing).

Can RF Break Up Scar Tissue?

Yes, and RF microneedling treats scar tissue significantly better than traditional microneedling. For years, the micro-punctures that microneedling creates have been useful in breaking down scar tissue and promoting new collagen and elastin for smooth skin. Now, the RF addition has made this one of the most versatile, effective solutions available for scars.

Comparing Vivace and Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Many anti-aging treatments on the market claim to rejuvenate, renew, and restore. While they might help, nothing is quite as effective at restoring a youthful appearance as microneedling with radiofrequency. The only issue is deciding which is best for you.

One of the main differences between the two is that Morpheus8 targets deeper layers of skin tissue to reverse more severe signs of aging. Vivace focuses on surface-level skin concerns. Let’s go through the benefits and longevity of each treatment to help you decide which is best for you.

Benefits of Vivace

As the newest generation of its kind, Vivace Microneedle RF is a popular solution for alleviating facial wrinkles and fine lines. Vivace is a fractional device that uses ultrasound to see the depth of the skin for treatment properly.

Some of the main reasons that patients choose Vivace include:

  • Shrinking large pores
  • Softening lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing active acne
  • Smoothing skin texture
  • Diminishing scarring
  • Minimizing stretch marks

Beyond the obvious benefits that Vivace brings, people love the treatment because it doesn’t stop at the combination of microneedling and RF energy. You have the option to add a triple-peptide glide serum and/or a cooling, soothing treatment mask to maximize the aftercare process.

Vivace Serums & Recovery Masks Enhance Healing

The Boost Serum contains naturally occurring amino acids Adiponin and Syndermin. These tripeptides are powerful enough to form the building blocks of healthy skin.

If you choose to add the Soothe mask to your Vivace treatment, you can add it to your regular skincare routine.

How Long Does Vivace Microneedling Last?

After the final treatment session, most patients see results for six months. You can prolong the improvements by scheduling follow-up sessions every four to six months. Remember to consistently apply sunscreen and use high-quality skincare products in between appointments (or after your last one).

Benefits of Morpheus8

If you see signs of aging around your facial features, Morpheus8 can make noticeable improvements. Targeting around the eyes, mouth, and forehead depending on need, Morpheus8 brings benefits such as:

  • Fading stretch marks
  • Minimizing acne scarring
  • Lifting and tightening loose skin
  • Correcting hyperpigmentation
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increasing collagen production
  • Reversing sun damage

Visible results begin to show within the first month after treatment, taking between three to six months to finalize.

How Long Does Morpheus8 Last?

While Vivace results are more short-term, Morpheus8 improvements can be seen anywhere from 12 months to three years after treatment. Your overall results depend on your skin health and the steps you take to preserve the improvements.

Keep the area moisturized, but avoid heavy creams and abrasive products. Leave makeup off for 48 hours minimum after treatment. Of course, quality skincare products and regular sunscreen use are always important. And you can schedule maintenance appointments to extend your results as long as you like.
