If you are looking for non-surgical treatments that can refresh and rejuvenate the complexion with minimal downtime, Vivace™ Microneedling RF may be ideal for you. Vivace™ stimulates the production of new collagen in deep layers of the skin to repair damage and help maintain skin tightness. Collagen gives the skin structural support, but unfortunately, it’s production decreases with age. Following Vivace™ treatments, our patients at Boca Raton Plastic Surgery Center see a noticeable improvement in skin texture and firmness.
What is Vivace™?
Vivace™ is the next generation of microneedling that treats early signs of aging of the face and neck. Superfine, gold tipped needles prick the skin and radiofrequency (RF) energy warms the tissue to generate collagen production. The treatment area can be numbed first for patient comfort, but the procedure is generally painless. Vivace™ treatments help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, crepiness around the eyes and neck, and early evidence of sun damage that comes with living in south Florida. It improves overall skin firmness and tone, and helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
Is Vivace™ safe for everyone?
Vivace™ can be safely used on all skin tones and skin types. It is a chemical-free process. Patients should be in good health with realistic expectations for their results. Vivace™ treatments are not recommended for people who have moderate or severe eczema.
How many treatments are needed?
Vivace™ treatments are highly customizable, making them a good solution for a variety of skin issues. For optimal results, a series of three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart is recommended. Each treatment takes 30-45 minutes. Aside from some redness immediately following the procedure, there is no downtime. Patients may resume their normal activities. However, it’s important to protect the Vivace™ treated skin with sunscreen after the sessions to avoid a sunburn and UV light damage.
What results can I expect?
Vivace™ treatments have lasting results that patients love! They can expect to enjoy smoother, tighter, more youthful-looking skin. Results will continue to improve over time as new collagen forms. Fine lines and wrinkles should be less obvious. Enlarged pores will be minimized. Areas of hyperpigmentation and acne scarring should be significantly reduced. Tell-tale signs of aging are banished, and patients may feel years younger.
