I rarely review or give testimonials, however, I thought I’d give The Vivace system a try and share my experience. I am not fond of needles, even if they are so small, so I was a bit apprehensive before my procedure. The numbing cream works wonders and is applied about 30 minutes prior. I was made to feel quite comfortable and throughout the whole procedure I felt little or no pain. As a performer, I sing in the Classic Rock Band, ASIA, I get very picky about my appearance. Photographs and videos can exaggerate the effect of time! However immediately afterwards I felt invigorated. Over the next few days I saw a difference in improvement of fine lines and a much more uniform skin tone. Yes, it works for men, too. I will be back for more.
