Skin Tightening (Vivace)
There are many non-invasive treatment options available today that tighten skin and enhance firmness by targeting collagen and elastin, the building blocks that weaken as we age and cause the skin to sag.
Starting in our 20s, our skin loses collagen at a rate of 1% per year. This means, by the time we are middle-aged, our skin has lost almost half of the essential elements that keep it firm and elastic. Lasers and other skin tightening devices can help promote collagen production but choosing the right treatment will depend on the targeted area and degree of skin laxity. Vivace skin tightening machine is the newest technology available that delivers results across all skin types and conditions but is also built for optimal comfort and recovery.
This non-surgical treatment for contouring and skin tightening of the face, neck, hands, and body stimulates the natural production of collagen, reducing fine lines and wrinkles beginning with just one office visit.
Like other microneedling treatments, Vivace RF Microneedling applies sterile microneedles to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Whereas microneedling rollers and some microneedling pens often lead to tearing, pain and mixed outcomes, Vivace RF Microneedling is designed to deliver more precise, deeper and pain-free results, while also preparing the skin to take-in post-treatment topicals like PRP.
The added benefit of radio frequency skin tightening provides additional skin tightening and lifting benefits making Vivace RF Microneedling the next generation in skin tightening solutions.
As with other skin rejuvenation and skin tightening treatments that involve heat energy, the results of Vivace Microneedling RF procedure emerge gradually as the skin produces new collagen. Rarely do the guests experience side effects after the treatments. Most people see the optimal benefits after more than one treatment. We recommend a series of treatments, scheduled at least 3 or 4 weeks apart, with maintenance procedures performed every 6 months.
The scars that acne may leave behind can often be more formidable than the pimples that proceeded them. Laser treatments have proven to produce significant results to remove stubborn acne scars that can occur deep into the dermis.
Often times, acne scars are deep within the dermis and acne scar removal can be difficult. Microneedling, in general, can reduce acne scarring by going further into the skin than traditional skin resurfacing devices.
What sets Vivace RF Microneedling apart from other micro needling options is that your physician can go to even deeper, more precise depths and deliver radiofrequency energy (RF) to stimulate collagen and tighten skin. Vivace RF Microneedling is virtually pain-free and also features red and blue LED light therapy to further increase collagen production and disrupt acne-causing bacteria.
Talk to your doctor about how Vivace RF Microneedling could be an effective option for your acne scar removal.
What to Expect
This is similar to all the micro needling treatments that guests have had before. The procedure begins with cleansing the skin to remove all makeup and products. Following this, a numbing cream is applied. This is then removed and the provider then uses the handheld device to deliver the treatment. The treatment is customized depending on your skin type. The depth of the treatment also varies depending on the area of the skin being treated(skin around eyes is thinner than the skin around the cheek). Both the face and neck can be treated in about 45 minutes. The actual time will depend on the area treated.
