FREDERICKSBURG, Texas, Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Vivace is an FDA-cleared treatment that combines micro-needling
Vivace is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates the natural production of collagen and is shown to be effective in alleviating facial wrinkles, fine lines, and tightening and toning of the face, neck, hands and body. When applied to the skin, under topical anesthesia, sterile microneedles are used to create microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin through which growth factors can be supplied. At the same time, gently heating the dermis with RF stimulates the body to produce new collagen.
Vivace is also remarkable on stretch marks, acne scars, helps restore hair loss and improves discoloration of melasma. It is safe for almost any skin type. Most patients notice significantly smoother, softer, and younger-looking skin, as well as improvements in skin tone and texture, after just one treatment. With Vivace, clients get immediate results, no down time, and it's virtually pain free! Plus, patients are back to normal activities the next day.
Adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to the Vivace treatment supplies extra growth factors for collagen from the patient's own blood. This takes only a few minutes and can be done right in the office. A study published in The Journal of Cutaneous Aesthetic Surgery compared adding PRP to microneedling treatments to treat acne scarring. Acne scars improved in 23 out of 30 patients using a PRP-Vivace combination treatment.
Holly, a recent client, is thrilled with her Vivace result. "My skin's texture and tightness was amazing after the first session, but continued to show improvement over the next 3 months." This is because collagen stimulation continues long after the treatment as more of this skin-tightening protein is laid down.
Repeat treatments once a year with Vivace can keep the skin toned, yet they do not damage the surface layer of the skin the way microdermabrasion and peels do. "In my dermatology practice, I frequently see patients who have developed age spots, skin allergies and infections that are due to thinning of the stratum corneum from repeated skin peels," notes Dr. Fleck. "The Vivace treatment and PRP preserve the stratum corneum and provide growth factors to stimulate the dermal collagen. Both procedures achieve superior outcomes compared with microdermabrasion and peels."
