VIVACE (vi-va-che) is a revolutionary new technology that simulates collagen and elastin to tighten the skin. It uses MicroNeedling Fractionated RadioFrequency (MFR) energy in the deep layers of the skin to bring the youth back.
The procedure involves placing a hand-piece consisting of Gold-Standards 36 insulated or non-insulated Gold micro-needles on the skin and releasing radio frequency energy inside the skin. The combination of MicroNeedling and Radio Frequency helps penetrate the skin layers, while ensuring the top skin layer is not affected. The technology maximizes comfort and patient satisfaction. It is customizable to patient needs, skin types and treatment areas. It also lowers the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in dark skin and can be safely used on patients with melasma and other types of pigmented lesions.
It uses a Red LED to activate skin cells to increase neo-collagenogenesis, which improves skins texture and tone. And a Blue LED acts on the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, thus, enabling treatment of active acne.
Benefits of Vivace Facial
How Vivace works
RADIO FREQUENCY FACIAL (RF FACIAL)
RF or Radio frequency sounds technical. It indeed is and is used for rejuvenation of loose skin. In the RF facial, Radio frequency energy is directed deep into the skin to target areas that has become resistant to energy flow and are accelerating the ageing process.
Humans are good conductors of current, when the RF energy is released, is becomes part of the electrical circuit. Resistance encountered by the flow of this released energy, results in heat generation in that resistant area and forces the body to regenerate and simulate. New collagen is formed leading to skin tightening, reduction of lines and wrinkles and at the same time making the skin look healthier, younger and smoother.
RF energy for facial tightening is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties. It is commonly used to treat the forehead ( it lifts eyebrows and tightens the skin on the forehead), under-eyes (thickens the skin and tightens & lifts the upper cheeks), cheeks (lifts them and diminishes enlarged pores), mid-face, lefts the jaw line and reduces the sagging, and on the neck – tightens skin and diminishes wrinkling of the neck.
The RF Facial is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment and a session takes between 30-60 minutes. The results of the treatment are rather immediate and the skin starts to get even better over the next 3-4 days. The results will last a while and will depend on the number of sessions and the state of the skin. Older patients need more sessions.
Benefits of radio frequency facial
The Radio frequency treatment is also performed tighten loose skin in other body areas. It indeed is used for skin -tightening after major procedures such as liposuction or weight loss surgery.
Side-effect of Radio frequency treatment
Common side effects are redness, swelling, blistering and bruising. Which typically will o away in a few hours. Some serious side effects are burns, skin indentations, subcutaneous fat loss, scarring, changes to pigmentation, open sores and infection. To avoid these, its advised to only get treated at recognized institutes.
CARBON DIOXIDE FACIAL (CO2 FACIAL)
The Carbon Dioxide Facial, or CO2 facial is known by many alternative names – COO laser, Co2 laser, Fractional laser, fractionated laser or fractional laser resurfacing of the skin.
It is a non-invasive treatment that uses a special device to deliver a laser beam divided into thousands of microscopic treatment zones that target a fraction of the skin at a time. As the fractionated CO2 laser interacts with the layers of the skin, correcting discolorations, filling increases, & lightening or removing other cosmetic imperfections. The CO2 laser also stimulates the production of collagen over time, which causes the skin to tighten. An appropriate solution for individuals with noticeable signs of aging, including wrinkles, creases, looses skin, areas of dark pigmentation, or acne scars.
The CO2 facial restores & refines the skin and creates a smoother, fresher, healthier and younger-looking skin improved tone, texture and pore size & the softening of wrinkles & lines. This fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing provides patients with relief from damaged skin. Treatment may be performed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and abnormal pigmentations.
Downtime: The procedure takes 15 to 25 minutes for a full face, with most men and women returning to routine activities in 3 to 7 days.
Frequency: The beneficial effects of this treatment are long lasting. However, since our skin keeps ageing, regular maintenance treatments are required.
