Vivace is a state-of-art technology that painlessly combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel, smooth, refresh, firm and rejuvenate your skin. Vivace uses a precision robotic motor to direct tiny gold micro needles painlessly into the dermis (the second layer of the skin) to deliver RF energy where it creates a controlled, therapeutic heat injury that tightens the skin and induces collagen and elastin production. The result is tighter, firmer, smoother, radiant younger looking skin with impactful improvements as fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and acne scars, without any visible downtime..

Only Vivace uses adjustable, precise gold needles to deliver customizable, controlled radio frequency (RF) energy to the dermis to thermally stimulate collagen, remodel and rejuvenate your skin. Traditional microneedling attempts to stimulate collagen mechanically, solely by the injury from the microneedles which, in fact, can tear the skin excessively causing unnecessary downtime. With Vivace, the depth of the needles as well as the amount of energy delivered to the dermis are adjustable and tailored to your needs (as opposed to traditional microneedling which is not adjustable.) The magnitude of improvement from Traditional microneedling can not compare to what you can achieve with RF powered Vivace. In addition, the Vivace robotic delivery system eliminates tearing of the skin resulting in minimal to no downtime. Vivace has the added benefit of being able to tighten the skin, shrink oil glands contributing to active acne, as customizable LED light therapy is delivered throughout the treatment to calm inflammation and speed healing.

Vivace uses a precision robotic motor to direct tiny, gold needles painlessly into the dermis (second layer) of the skin. The gold-tipped needles used with Vivace are sterile and stimulate the production of collagen. Radio-frequency gets delivered into the deeper layers of the skin, which creates a therapeutic heat injury that tightens the skin and induces collagen and elastin production. Vivace also uses LED light therapy leads to create transformative changes in the appearance of your skin.

Vivace is an excellent option for many men and women who wish to rejuvenate and resurface their skin all through one type of treatment. Vivace is best for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Vivace also improves other skin concerns, like enlarged pores, , and a loss of firmness.

To learn more about whether or not Vivace is right for you, please schedule a consultation. Dr. Schultz will review your skin history, concerns, and goals to determine if Vivace is right for you.

Vivace is designed to reduce the appearance of:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven texture
  • Uneven tone
  • Acne scarring
  • Scars
  • Large Pores
  • Sagging Skin
  • Loss of Volume

Depending on your specific circumstances and skin condition, Dr. Schultz may recommend a varying number of appointments to receive the best results possible.

Most patients only experience mild redness and swelling following their procedure. However, there is no downtime or long recovery period associated with Vivace.

For many, the noticeable results and lack of downtime make Vivace a fantastic choice when it comes to rejuvenating their skin. Patients who enjoy wearing makeup can typically reapply makeup within 8 hours of their procedure.

With hundreds of options for facial rejuvenation on the market, it can be overwhelming to navigate treatment options and understand what is best for you. At Park Avenue Skincare, we do the hard work for you. We are committed to offering only the most efficacious, safe, and proven technologies on the market.

Your visit starts with a comprehensive consultation including discussing the history of your skin, performing a facial analysis, and formulating a specific treatment plan. We spend time educating you on what treatment options are best for you and why. When choosing where to start improving your skin, you should rest assured that you are in the best hands at Park Avenue Skincare.

At our practice, all Vivace treatments are performed by one of our Registered Nurses or Physician Assistants. Your comfort, results, and patient experience are our priority. Each Vivace treatment is tailored to your individual concerns, needs, and unique anatomy. You can expect an exceptional outcome with the personal attention and care you would expect from a concierge practice.

You will spend an hour in the office on the day of your Vivace treatment. Pre-treatment photographs are taken and then you will relax while a high potency topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for 30 minutes. This prevents you from feeling discomfort during the procedure. Then the anesthetic cream is removed, and the Vivace treatment begins.

Each treatment takes about 20 minutes. After the Vivace treatment is complete, a soothing peptide mask is applied to your treated skin and you are given a special post-treatment serum to use over the next 24 hours.

Patient Reviews

I've been seeing Dr. Schultz for the last 8 years and during that time, I've recommended him to countless friends for both cosmetic and medical dermatologic help. I trust him completely both diagnostically and aesthetically. When I had shingles, he was wonderful, incredibly supportive and kind. And when I eased into doing more cosmetic dermatology, he was– and continues to be– patient, careful and cautious. He listens to concerns and really hears what your goal outcome is and works with you to make it happen. I wanted to maintain a natural look while keeping my skin looking fresh and that's just what he's done for me. I always leave his office feeling prettier and well-cared for! If you have a medical concern or something about your skin you want to upgrade, you can't do better than Dr. Schultz and his wonderful team. And the products are amazing as well!

Dr. Schultz is the most thorough and good natured dermatologist I have ever seen. I have been a patient of his for more than 20 years. He has taught me everything I know about the value of taking care of my skin, a gift that keeps on giving. He also takes the time to listen to me, to see me as an individual and doesn't treat my needs as a one size fits all doctor. I really appreciate his kindness, patience and expertise. I absolutely love his product line and have definitely reaped the rewards from using it, especially his glycolic peel pads and moisturizer, which I can't live without. My skin feels softer, smoother, appears more translucent and actually looks younger! He helped me to see beyond the lines and wrinkles, although he so good at helping to keep those at bay while maintaining a very natural appearance. His staff is outstanding. They make you feel welcome, like family, from the moment you walk through the door. Angela, Monika, Deborah and all of the support staff are extraordinary at what they do. Thank you Dr. Schultz and everyone at Park Ave Skincare. You're the best!

Dr. Schultz has truly transformed my skin, so much so that I can confidently leave the house without wearing makeup now. During my first meeting with him, he intently listened to my skin concerns, we discussed what my goals were, and he explained pragmatically what treatments and products he recommended for me. I truly appreciate his fantastic bedside manner and conservative approach. I am a perfectionist in every aspect of my life, including my skin, and he understood this and was committed to helping me achieve every skin goal I had. The entire staff is just so fantastic and friendly, from reception to the PAs. They make you feel welcome and extremely comfortable, which to me is very important when visiting any doctor’s office. As someone who works too much and never gets enough sleep, my skin was looking very dull and lifeless. My skin is now full of life again and has an incredible glow to it which I have never had before. And I owe it all to the incredible Dr. Schultz.

My partnership with Dr Schultz began more than 30 years ago. As a generous friend, advisor, skilled surgeon, and superb cosmetic diagnostician, he has enabled me to look my best. He has kept me abreast of the most sophisticated procedures and in so doing, has maximized my appearance, always guided by what will be most beneficial for me. He is someone I go to for advice and care and his staff is another manifestation of this care. I don’t know many patients who can say this, and I feel fortunate to be among them.

- Ellen R.

In the four years that I've been a patient of Dr. Schultz, my acne-prone skin has gone from constant breakouts to smooth and clear. These days, I feel confident and comfortable enough in my skin to wear minimal makeup, if any—which I never would have done in years past. He and his warm, friendly staff always go above and beyond; he takes the time to listen, talk with me, and create the best plan for my skin. It's clear he has my best interests in mind, and I trust him wholeheartedly. I would highly recommend him to friends, family, and frankly, anyone who asks.

- Deanna P.

Each session with Dr. Schultz is a mini education in skin care. He approaches each patient as a unique individual with different needs. I’m Asian and he’s explained to me how that impacts treatment in a clear manner that a layperson can understand. At each examination, he recites detailed notes to his staff which he then refers back to at each future appointment, adjusting and tweaking treatment plans when necessary. Over the past two years I’ve seen a remarkable improvement in my blemishes and overall complexion and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to enhance their appearance.

- Sherry G.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schultz for many years, and I continue to be amazed at his medical approach, patience, and professionalism. He takes the time to listen to my health concerns, explains how and why he would like to issue a treatment in a way that I understand , answers all of my questions, and all of his procedures and painless and thorough. He is very attentive, results-oriented, and extremely knowledgeable. He follows up and is committed to my health and satisfaction. The Park Avenue Skincare is a calm environment and the staff are all very friendly, warm, and respectful. It's easy to get appointments at a time that works for me and they are always on time and considerate. I think so highly of him and his practice that I sent my mom to him, and continue to go to his office even though my life is based in midtown west! I have great confidence in the care that he gives.
