As your local aesthetic provider, I’m a bit obsessed with results. It’s what motivated me to open Belle Marin Aesthetic Medicine in the first place, and why I continually strive to advance and expand my services — because you deserve to experience the best! And this explains why I acquired skin tightening with Vivace™ Microneedle RF, a state-of-the-art microneedling and radiofrequency treatment.
What sets Vivace apart?
There’s little to no downtime with Vivace Microneedle RF. This is because Vivace is a microneedling treatment involving minimally-invasive micro needles. These micro needles create thousands of tiny holes, called “controlled injuries,” which trigger your skin’s natural healing response. While Vivace creates these “controlled injuries,” it also blankets your skin in radiofrequency energy, which heats things up and helps to boost your skin’s natural healing response. To enhance your treatment even more, Vivace offers both blue or red LED light. If your skin is prone to breakouts, we will use blue LED light. For anti-aging benefits, red LED light is clinically proven to stimulate new collagen production and cellular renewal. All this healing within your skin, prompted by Vivace, is what reveals dramatic textural improvements including a smoother, thicker, clearer, brighter and younger-looking complexion. But there’s more! I go a step further by adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the mix! Packed with healing power, PRP boosts your skin’s renewal process tenfold, revealing even more revitalization.
Vivace can help to improve the look and feel of skin on any area of the body, from stretch marks on the belly to crow’s feet around the eyes. What’s even more impressive is that Vivace also safely treats all types of skin and tones, from dark to lighter shades. This versatility also extends to the intensity of your treatment. Depending on the areas you are targeting and your goals, we can tailor your heat settings, needle penetration and the type of LED light to safely reveal optimal benefits.
You can expect no downtime and possibly some redness for a few hours to a day or two, depending on the intensity of your treatment. You’ll be able to resume your regular routine immediately following your treatment. The most important thing to remember is that you’ll need to apply a physical sunscreen every day, especially during your healing process, when your skin is most vulnerable. To maintain your benefits, you’ll want to continue applying a daily SPF throughout the year.
