Vivace vs Infini
There are probably now about 6 needle RF devices on the market, with the leader still Infini. Most don't have insulated needles and those should not be considered. Vivace has insulated needles. One of its deficiencies is its motor driver, which is very slow. Although wattage is high, the actual joules into the skin is low. This means that each treatment is less effective and more are needed. On Vivace literature/videos, it is stated that 3-6 treatments are needed. Infini has been doing its research and now supplies significantly higher energy into the skin to make each treatment even more effective. There is slightly more redness, lasting up to 4 or 5 days, but the results are better. These recent changes (Gen 1.2) consist of a new needle tip that gives a more even distribution of the energy. New settings which give higher joules per pulse. And a new user interface that makes treatment parameters easier to choose what's best for patients.
Advanced RF MicroNeedling Devices. Vivace
The Vivace is the first microneedling with radiofrequency system that allows you to change the frequency of the energy being delivered through the needles. The current devices are only 1 or 2 MhZ, while the Vivace is the first device that has both settings. This is a critical advance as you can target the energy more accurately by selectively using this new feature strategically with either guarded or unguarded needles. Furthermore, unlike the Infini which uses solenoid "snap" motors, the Vivace is the first device to use a robotic micromotor to more gently push the needles into the skin, leading to a more comfortable patient experience. Other devices use hydraulic systems to drive the needles which some find similarly uncomfortable. Finally the Vivace circuit board is a more advanced Chevron circuit on a 36 pin set which allows for even energy delivery and a lower consumable cost.

I am not aware if the Vivace microneedles are coated, thereby sparing The epidermis. The Infini needles are covered down to the tips, and only release radio frequency energy in The deeper parts of The dermis. This protects the epidermis. However, when using any device, The most important factor is The physician who is performing The procedure. Find someone who has extensive experience in Microneedling with radio frequency. Good luck.

Infini RF is a popular device but i love intensif much more because they are non insulated needles. Vivace has insulated needles, but may require more treatments. Most importantly though, I always do microneedling with prp for the best results. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
