Vivace | microneedling with radio frequency
Cooper City | Davie | Weston | Pembroke Pines
Despite your best efforts to age gracefully, the signs of time and the effects of sun damage eventually appear. Whether it’s fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, dull skin, or a rough texture, faces tell the stories of our lives. Until now, each problem required its own solution, and some may have felt impossible to solve without invasive surgery or being willing to wait through significant downtime. But the times, they are a changin’ because new Vivace combines three effective treatments into one and maximizes results while minimizing treatment time.
The Latest Generation of Microneedling
The newest generation of microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) and healing LEDs, Vivace was created to dramatically improve overall skin quality and regenerate a youthful appearance. This advanced, non-surgical treatment stimulates natural collagen production in multiple ways at the same time to tighten and tone the skin, lessen lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scarring, and even diminish stretch marks. What’s more, a series of Vivace treatments accomplishes all of this skin rejuvenation with virtually no downtime and little to no discomfort.
At Ageless Medical, we have been performing microneedling, RF treatments, and LED light therapy separately for many years, and we are amazed and excited by the quick, painless results Vivace makes possible. By combining these three treatments, effects can be achieved faster and better. Thanks to the LED, healing is advanced to the point that downtime is nearly nonexistent, and results continue to improve during the six months following treatment.
How Does It Work?
The breakthrough technology of Vivace Fractional Micro Needle RF combines microneedling, radiofrequency, and LED in a controlled fashion. Vivace allows for sending powerful RF energy to a specific depth thanks to the microportals made in the skin by microneedling. This means that Vivace punctures, stimulates collagen, and benefits from healing LED lights simultaneously, making it a highly effective treatment. In fact, the combination of three modalities offers more benefits than having each treatment separately. And while the effects from one treatment can be seen immediately, Vivace works best when performed in a series.
MicroNeedling is a technique designed to stimulate the body’s natural ability to produce collagen by creating microscopic channels in the skin with microneedles, which turns on the body’s healing mechanisms. It can be performed anywhere on the face or body and provides dramatic, natural results over time as your body develops new collagen and skin cells. This is what has made microneedling a superior treatment for everything from scarring to wrinkles. Vivace incorporates two types of needles for even better results and offers controlled application, which makes treatment significantly more comfortable.
Radiofrequency (RF) sends heat below the skin to cause a jump in collagen and elastin, resulting in tightening of the skin. By sending RF energy through the Vivace applicator into the microchannels just opened in your skin, the energy penetrates deeper, and effects are increased.
LED light therapy has been proven to improve skin’s healing time. By combining red and blue LED with microneedling and RF, even more collagen and elastin are produced, and the healing time post-treatment becomes negligible.
We apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment, so you may feel a warm sensation or a bit of pressure and light sparking, however, most patients report Vivace to be pain free. You can watch Ageless Medical’s Erin Owoc, ARNP having a Vivace treatment here.
The number of recommended Vivace treatments depends on your individual needs. Most patients begin to see results after the first treatment. Typically, a series of three spaced about a month apart is recommended.
Results of a Vivace treatment can be seen immediately, and you will notice a new brightness and glow to your skin. The effects get better over time as your body continues to produce more collagen and elastin with maximum results achieved at around six months.
You can treat any area of the face or body with Vivace! That means, you can tighten and firm the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, legs, back, and any other nooks and crannies that could use some improvement.
A Vivace treatment begins with the application of a numbing cream to the area that will be treated. Once the cream has taken effect, the Vivace applicator is placed on the skin so that the microneedles can gently puncture it and send the RF energy deep below. As this takes place, red and blue LED lights simultaneously start the body’s own healing so that when treatment ends about 30 minutes later, you simply have the look and feel of a sunburn, but you are able to immediately continue with regular daily activities.
Combining Vivace with platelet rich plasma (PRP) offers even more enhancement to the skin. Because Vivace’s microneedles open tiny portals in the skin, it’s the ideal time to add in the growth factors that PRP isolates from your own centrifuged blood. Learn more about PRP here.
Considering the dramatic and permanent benefits of Vivace, it is incredible to note that the treatment requires no downtime thanks to the healing use of LED light therapy. Post-treatment skin may feel slightly tight and have the appearance of a light sunburn. We will provide you with a post-treatment serum that can be easily absorbed through the still-open microchannels in your skin. By the next day, you can wear makeup and continue with your daily routine as usual. And unlike laser skin resurfacing treatments, which are best performed during months with less sun, Vivace can be performed throughout the year.
All of the treatments combined in Vivace – microneedling, RF, and LED – are safe and effective for all skin types.
