Vivace™ Fractional Microneedle with Radio Frequency

Vivace is an FDA-cleared treatment that combines the latest generation of microneedling technology with radiofrequency (RF), a proven non-invasive skin tightening method, and LED light therapy. This powerful treatment quickly and effectively reduces fine lines, scars, stretch marks, and other blemishes—in addition to lifting and firming mild skin sagging and restoring an overall smoother, more youthful appearance.

How does it work?

As we age, our bodies produce less elastin and collagen. This causes our skin to have less structure and elasticity, which ultimately causes our skin to sag and form wrinkles. Vivace’s unique hand-held device applies sterile guarded microneedles to create micro-channel deep into the dermis of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production.  As a result, your skin repairs itself by dissolving and replacing damaged tissue. This naturally tightens your skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scars- leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin.

Our system creates micro-channels in your skin that remain open for up to six hours following a treatment. This allows us to introduce customized treatment serums to improve your results.

In addition to microneedles, the handpiece also delivers adjustable Radio Frequency (RF) energy. The red RF energy activates cellular activity and stimulates collagen and the blue energy kills acne-causing bacteria and helps reduce oil production in your skin. Unlike lasers, RF-based treatments deliver energy below your pigment-producing cells and do not increase the pigment in your skin.  It is safe for all skin types and ethnicities.


What does it feel like?

Once the skin is numb, you may feel a light pressure that tells you the device is doing its work. Most people find the treatment to be comfortable with virtually no pain.


How many treatments do I need?

For most, three to four treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, provide the optimal experience for patients. While the results are often immediate for skin tone and texture, there is also improvement over a three-month period as the process of collagen regeneration increases over time.


How long does a treatment take?

The actual treatment takes about 20-45 minutes, depending on what areas are to be treated, with an additional 30 minutes needed for numbing.


What is my recovery?

The microchannels created by the microneedling remain open for a limited time providing an opportunity to supplement the treatment with recommended serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. Using the right products, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.


How long do the results last?

Everyone is different, but the collagen you make is your own and continues to accelerate over three months. You may notice healthier looking skin right away. However, keep in mind that collagen production occurs over time and it would not be realistic to expect damage that has happened to the skin over years will disappear right away.

Rejuvapen

RejuvaPen is a microneedling system that uses a specialized “pen” containing a cartridge with nine small needles. But don’t let that scare you! These are extremely small microneedles that lead to great results. This medical-grade treatment will improve your skin’s appearance! It is used to treat acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.  There are so many wonderful benefits that result from the treatment.

Should I Use RejuvaPen?

RejuvaPen is a treatment that can be used on anyone who is looking to achieve an overall healthier appearance of their skin, including acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.  This device can be used on all skin types.


What should I expect?

During the session, you generally do not feel any discomfort.  Healing is patient-specific and depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the procedure. Most commonly there may be some redness that resembles a mild sunburn. This redness will likely dissipate within 24 hours, however, it is possible that you may have some redness for 2-4 days.


How long is each treatment?

Each treatment lasts about 20-30 minutes after topical numbing is complete.  

One of the great things about RejvaPen are the antioxidants and growth factor we can add, which will greatly enhance the already amazing results of the RejuvaPen treatment.

Morpheus8

Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment. If you are starting to notice some looseness around your jowls and under your chin, Morpheus8 is a new tool in the anti-aging arsenal.

HOW DOES IT WORK

The Morpheus8 is a new subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. Penetrating deep into the skin and fat, this morphs the aging face or body into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance, for all skin tones.

Fractionated RF skin tightening energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime. The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types.

The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.

  • Deep and safe fractional treatment penetrating 4000 microns with an additional thermal profile of 1000+ microns
  • Extremely uniform effect
  • Little to no thermal damage to dermis
  • Safe on skin type VI with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which is common with other resurfacing methods.

Rejuvapen vs. Vivace/Morpheus8

The RejuvaPen is a very affordable option for microneedling with great results. The Vivace, although more expensive, is superior to any service in microneedling because it penetrates deeper and can be adjusted by the provider with the added RF.
