Is Vivace Right for You?

Are you dealing with unwanted acne scars that just won’t go away? If so, Vivace may be able to help. This treatment is a convenient, comfortable, non-surgical solution to aging or damaged skin. Not only can it lessen the appearance of acne scars, it can also firm the skin by stimulating the production of collagen.  Typical treatment areas are the face, neck and chest, but it can be used on other areas as well.

What is Vivace?

Vivace is a new treatment that combines two highly-effective techniques: microneedling and radio-frequency. Super fine, gold-plated needles, approximately the size of human hair, are mechanically inserted into the skin while also releasing radio-frequency energy into the deeper layers of the dermis at various specified depths to maximize the benefits of this treatment.

Who is a Candidate?

Vivace is actually very versatile, in the sense that it can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions and concerns, as well as all skin types and colors. Vivace treatments trigger the skin’s self-rejuvenating process, increasing collagen production while firming the skin.

Vivace is effective at treating skin textural issues, fine lines and wrinkles; but especially good at treating acne scarring. Acne affects so many people and unfortunately severe acne often leaves highly pigmented marks long after the spots have healed. Vivace will speed up the cell-renewal process and help the scars heal faster than they would have on their own.

What Can I Expect?

One of the best features of this treatment is the minimal downtime. Post treatment, you might experience redness and sensitivity but that will typically subside within a couple days, most patients are red for less than 24 hours. The number of treatments needed will vary, but once your proper amount of treatments are completed you should see a drastic improvement in the overall health of your skin, as well as the lightening of any hyper-pigmentation.
