What Is the Vivace Treatment, and How Can It Improve Skin Texture and Tone?
No one is happy to see the first signs of aging on the skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, and textural changes become more noticeable after age 30. In many cases, patients looking to restore their youthful appearance will approach a dermatologist to ask about steps they can take to improve the skin’s health and look. With treatments such as Vivace, men and women have the opportunity to take charge of their skin’s appearance without invasive plastic surgeries.
What is Vivace?
If you want to improve skin tone and texture, minimize pore size, and tighten the skin to reduce the signs of aging, the Vivace treatment might be right for you! Our dermatologists at Houston Dermatology Associates describe the Vivace treatment as a minimally invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. It combines both microneedling and radiofrequency energy to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. The result is smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin. It combines both microneedling to stimulate natural production of collagen, and elastin, with radio frequency energy to create a tightening effect.
What can I expect during the treatment?
During a Vivace treatment, a special device with tiny needles is used on the targeted areas of the skin. These needles create controlled micro-injuries to stimulate collagen production while radiofrequency energy is delivered to enhance the tightening effects further. Topical numbing cream can be applied beforehand to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
What can I expect after my Vivace treatment?
Patients may experience some redness or swelling in the treated areas immediately following the session, but this should subside within a few days. Patients can dramatically improve their skin’s appearance and health with regular treatments.
