Vivace Micro-Needling RF
VIVACE is a gentle microneedle radio frequency treatment ideal for any skin type, which stimulates collagen production, improves the tone and texture of your skin and shrinks pores, giving your skin a noticeable radiant and youthful glow. It is shown to be effective in alleviating facial wrinkles, fine lines, and tightening and toning the face, neck, hands, and body.
What does the treatment involve?
CONSULTATION: At the start of any VIVACE treatment a thorough consultation will take place, where our specialized dermatologist will evaluate your skin and discuss with you your specific skin needs and concerns.
PROCESS: During the treatment a topical anesthesia is placed on the area being treated. The hand piece consists of a multiple needle head that penetrates the skin at a specific depth, creating a channel that stimulates the body to produce new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Radio frequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This in turn promotes new dermal volume.
TIME: The procedure takes about 45 minutes.
FINISHING: After the procedure you might notice redness for the first few hours after the treatment, this is normal and will subside.
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS NEEDED: We recommend three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience and results patients are looking for.
