Vivace – Erase Wrinkles. Even Skin Tone. Minimize Pore Size.
Everyone wants to age gracefully, but inevitably fine lines and wrinkles set in! Everyone wants radiant, smooth skin, but acne happens both past and present. With the help of Vivace Microneedling with Radiofrequency you can Love the Skin You’re In!
Vivace is great for fine lines and skin tightening, reduction in the appearance of scarring, minimizing pore size, improved skin tone and texture with minimal downtime.
Vivace is one of my personal new favorite procedures and here is why: it’s great for all skin types, tones and textures, great for patients of all ages and great for a variety of skin conditions. I love the fact that you can have a Vivace treatment year-round without having to worry about staying out of the sun for an extended period of time, and it has very, very little downtime! Since a majority of women in the Midwest work at least part-time many of us don’t have time for procedures where you have to “hideout for a week!” The beauty of Vivace is now you don’t have to; many patients are able to go out to dinner the same night and look great!
Vivace works by using 36 gold-plated needles to puncture different layers of the skin at varying depths while releasing a burst of radiofrequency energy into the skin causing micro-injury stimulating collagen production and tightening. The skin heals itself from the inside out resulting in a reduction in fine lines, scarring, improvement in skin texture and tightening.
Most patients undergo treatment to their full face and neck. Patients come to the office a little over an hour before treatment for photos and a topical anesthetic numbing cream. Patients feel some pressure and heat, but little discomfort. Treatment usually lasts around 1 hour and 20 min. Although you will see results in 1 treatment, we do recommend a series of 3-5 treatments at least 21 days apart to maximize your results.
I am often asked how long the results last. My response is that patients will continue to get results over time, and full results can take up to 3 months. However, just as you don’t stop aging, if you quit going to the gym for your body, your results don’t last. Think of Vivace as “fitness for the skin.” I tell my patients to plan for 1-2 treatments per year after the initial series as maintenance to continue to look and feel their best.
