Oakland Vivace Fractional Microneedling at Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics

Everyone wants to look their best — no matter their age. While wrinkles and fine lines may be inevitable, it doesn’t mean we accept them. But with all the creams and serums and wishful thinking out there, is there anything that actually works? Yes! The breakthrough science of the Vivace Fractional Microneedling system can minimize or even eliminate those pesky lines that make you look older than you feel. Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics strives to deliver the best microneedling Oakland has to offer with this incredible technology, and Dr. Reshma Vasanwala is the expert dedicated to helping you restore the art of you!

What is Microneedling with Vivace?

Advanced Technology for Your Skin

Vivace™ is a skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production. This FDA-cleared treatment has been shown to improve fine lines, acne scarring, pore size, tone, and texture.

Traditional microneedling rollers and pens can lead to tearing, pain, and variable results. Vivace combines precision microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) technology with a specialized treatment serum and cooling peptide mask to help make your skin firmer, tighter, and smoother. All of your treatments will be done by a physician (me!) and you can rest assured you will receive continuity of care and consistent results as we work together. The Vivace Experience is one of the most requested and performed procedures at our practice.

How Vivace Works

The Vivace RF Microneedling uses thirty-six insulated, gold-tipped needles attached to a robotic motor that produces a fast and even insertion into the skin. With each insertion, microneedle electrodes deliver bipolar radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis to facilitate the natural wound in healing process and tighten the skin. In time, these tiny injuries will stimulate the production of collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture and soften Acne scars.

The Difference is in the Details


Other microneedling rollers and pens can lead to tearing, pain, and variable patient results. The Vivace’s 36 insulated, gold-tip needles and robotic step motor create fast and even insertions into the skin. The robotic depth settings offer 31 precise, multilevel adjustments down to a depth of 3.5mm at .1mm increments — more precise than any other RF microneedling device.


The chevron-patterned 70-watt circuitry RF distributes heat evenly and delivers skin tightening, reducing redness, hot spots, burning, and discomfort that can occur with other devices. Vivace delivers more power than any other technology.


With the Vivace, we can treat a broader array of skin types and tones with absolute customization. Depths can be adjusted at precise increments from .5mm to 3.5mm. A variable pulse duration of 100ms to 800ms means the length of time the needle is engaged with tissue can be better controlled. Lastly, choose red or blue light therapy for additional collagen stimulation and to target acne-causing bacteria respectfully.


What sets Vivace apart is the overall Vivace Experience™ — the virtually pain-free treatment creates clean and open microchannels allowing the skin to best receive the benefits of serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. Use the specially formulated soothing mask and boost serum to complete the Vivace Experience or complement with other cosmeceuticals post-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

The microchannels created by the Vivace remain open for four to six hours, creating an opportunity to supplement the skin with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results. After that time period, clients are ready for a night out with little to no indication of any treatment that day.

Most patients say the Vivace RF Microneedling is virtually pain-free with no downtime. For sensitive patients, professional-quality numbing creams are available.

The actual microneedling treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30-45 minutes needed for numbing the skin.

We recommend three treatments initially, spaced four to six weeks apart, to provide the results that patients are looking for. Single treatment protocols are available depending on the experience desired.

Radiofrequency (RF) provides heat that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. This leads to increased skin tightening and a reduction in wrinkles.
