Brand new to VIVA, we are now offering the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device: SkinPen. This targeted skincare procedure is perfect for treating acne and/or other scarring over a course of sessions.

Acne and the scars left behind can be tough to live with.

The treatments we offer at VIVA revolve around our passion for giving our clients’ the confidence boost they deserve and helping them to feel the best version of themselves. Acne is one of the most common skin complaints but living with acne can be tough and often causes a knock to confidence. The scarring it leaves behind can also be just as distressing, but that’s where we come in. Introducing SkinPen.

How does SkinPen work?

There are three stages to the wound repair process: Inflammation; Proliferation and Remodelling. The microneedling device is passed over the skin, causing hundreds to thousands of micro-injuries. This low-level trauma encourages an immune response which works to repair the skin’s surface. Over time the skin is rebuilt and is then remodelled to form new dermal tissues and blood vessels. Over 2-3 treatment sessions the improvement in skin quality will take effect and the complexion will be visibly smoother with improved texture and a reduction in visible scarring. Long lasting results will then be sustained with maintenance sessions.

What can I expect from treatment?

This treatment is quick, comfortable and fuss free, with the procedure itself taking around 30 minutes to complete. Topical anaesthetic will be applied for your comfort and as the device is moved across the skin, you should only feel a mild tingling, vibrating sensation. Immediately after treatment you will likely experience some redness but after 24 hours this will begin to subside and you will be able to resume most day-to-day activities.

Will it work for me?

SkinPen is safe for use on all skin types has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of acne scarring for both men and women. In fact, 90% of those who took part in the clinical trial said they would recommend the treatment to a friend. To achieve your desired results multiple sessions may be required but your individual treatment plan will be discussed during your virtual consultation.
