At Impress Cosmetic Medicine, we use Cynosure’s Vivace Fractionated Radiofrequency Microneedling to treat fine lines, wrinkles and scars including those resulting from acne, and stretch marks.
Vivace is also able to produce skin tightening as well as improve skin texture and tone.
Vivace combines several therapeutic treatments into one package:
Radiofrequency, also known as RF, stimulates collagen production by causing a microthermal injury under the surface of the skin, which is delivered using gold plated microneedles.
Microneedling on its own has shown to be an effective treatment for the rejuvenation of skin. Combining it with RF enhances its effects.
‘Fractionated’ means that only a proportion of the skin is treated so instead of treating the entire area, we treat only a fraction of it. The benefit of a fractionated treatment is that the discomfort and downtime are less when compared with a non-fractionated treatments.
In summary, Vivace is a great treatment option if you are looking to improve the surface texture and appearance of your skin. It can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as skin tightening effect. Vivace can produce similar results to a fractionated laser treatment, with less discomfort and little or no downtime. Typically, there is no crusting or shedding. Vivace may be suitable for darker skin types.
