Vivace is a fractionated microneedle radiofrequency treatment.
We have introduced Vivace to Impress Cosmetic Medicine to enable us to treat fine lines and wrinkles, scars including those resulting from acne, and stretch marks.
Vivace can also result in skin tightening and improve skin texture and tone.
Vivace combines several therapeutic treatments into one package:
Radiofrequency, also known as RF, stimulates collagen production by causing microthermal injury under the surface of the skin. This is delivered using microneedles. The other advantage with RF is that it can be used on a greater range of skin types when compared with laser rejuvenation.
Microneedling on its own has shown to be an effective treatment for the rejuvenation of skin. Combining it with RF enhances its effects.
Fractionation 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 treatment.
In summary, Vivace is a skin rejuvenation system that can produce similar results to a fractionated laser treatment with less discomfort and little or no downtime. Vivace may be suitable for darker skin types.
