Vivace in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky

Description

Vivace incorporates microneedling with radio-frequency energy to help revitalize and tighten the skin. Gold plated needles, the size of a human hair, are robotically inserted into the skin. The radiofrequency energy only comes out of the bottom of the needle. The outside of the needle is insulated, thus bypassing the epidermis. This treatment is very flexible in that it can be used on almost any area of the face and body, and on any type of skin. It is especially effective in reducing acne scarring.

The Procedure

The first step in Vivace treatment is to numb the treatment area(s). A handheld device that consists of multiple needle heads will then be used to puncture the skin while simultaneously applying radiofrequency energy. This stimulates collagen production, as well as skin-tightening agents such as hyaluronic acid and elastin, for a radiant, younger-looking complexion. The radiofrequency in this treatment can be adjusted for each individual’s unique skin type and skin concerns.

Patients should undergo three to six sessions spaced one week apart for optimal results. This procedure takes about one hour to complete.
