The Vivace Experience™
Posted June 24, 2019
Regardless of our age, we all want to look and feel our best with a natural, radiant and healthy glow. Inevitably, the first signs of aging appear in the mirror with the fine lines and wrinkles staring back at us in our reflection. Now there is a simple, non-surgical treatment that will address those concerns with dramatic results and virtually no pain or downtime.
What is it?
The Vivace Experience™, FDA-cleared for patient safety, is the newest generation of radiofrequency microneedling. Radiofrequency provides heat, which is combined with the effects of the microneedling treatment to stimulate the natural production of collagen. It is a minimally invasive treatment which is effective in softening fine lines and wrinkles and is shown to tighten and tone the face, neck, hands, and body. Radiofrequency microneedling can also minimize the appearance of scarring and pore size as well as improve the texture of the skin. The Vivace treatment includes the use of corresponding red or blue LED light to either stimulate collagen or disrupt acne bacteria production. Skin tone and texture results may be seen immediately with further improvement noted over time as your own process of collagen regeneration increases. The device used is only part of the process, with the use of post-procedure serums working to further improve your results. The optimal experience has been typically seen with 3-4 treatments that are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The results may vary from patient to patient as everyone is different and the collagen you make is your own. The accelerated production will continue to improve over three months and yearly maintenance should be done to maintain the desired results.
How does it work?
The treatment itself can be done with or without having numbing cream applied. When a numbing cream is used, you will feel little more than light pressure to the face and an occasional light sparking or warmth to the skin during the treatment process. Many patients find the experience to be in the range of comfortable to virtually pain-free. The entire procedure takes about an hour, including the time needed for the numbing cream application. Most skin types can be treated, including tanned and darkened skin. Limitations apply to patients that are breastfeeding, pregnant, or have a pre-existing condition. Retin A should be discontinued 24-hours before treatment and over-the-counter anti-viral medication should be taken if the patient has a history of cold sores. Sun safety as part of the recommended recovery protocol is always important, as with any treatment or procedure, to promote a healthy and beautiful result.
