Love the Skin You’re in With New Vivace Ultra RF Microneedling
The Vivace® RF Microneedling that we all know and love just got an upgrade! Allow us to introduce: Vivace Ultra Microneedling. Artemedica is excited to be the first practice in the United States to offer the brand new Vivace Utra RF Microneedling system to our patients.
We all deserve to age gracefully, beautifully, and elegantly, while looking and feeling our best, at any age. While some see their wrinkles as badges of honor and wisdom, not everyone feels the same way about these cosmetic features. Even though they are a beautiful and natural part of the ageing process, many men and women want to reduce their wrinkles with treatments like Vivace Ultra RF microneedling.
The Vivace Ultra RF microneedling system is an FDA cleared, minimally invasive procedure designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, as well as loose, sagging skin and enlarged pores. As a result, skin appears more youthful and smoother, effectively erasing years from your appearance.
How is Vivace Ultra RF microneedling different from traditional microneedling?
Traditional microneedling is a process by which a microneedling system creates hundreds of tiny abrasions through the skin. These microabrasions initiate the skin’s natural hearing process and the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin strengthen the affected skin cells which results in smoother, firmer, more radiant skin.
Common treatment areas include:
On the other hand, Vivace Ultra is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling system which dramatically improves the appearance and texture of your skin with significantly faster results. It’s even gentle enough to be used on most skin tones and types, including tanned or dark skin, without worry of hyperpigmentation.
Vivace Ultra addresses:
Vivace Ultra microneedling redefines what is possible in personalized aesthetic treatments by combining the latest and most advanced non-surgical dermatologic technologies in one compact device. The system utilizes uniform radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles with immediate results. Ultrasound-based imaging enables personalized microneedle depth for maximum results, while built-in LED light therapy speeds up the healing process. Vivace Ultra also uses insulated gold-tipped microneedles to deliver a less invasive treatment process while enabling nutrient-rich serums to reach deeper into your skin during each microneedling treatment.
This device gives Artemedica providers the ability to offer a more customizable treatment while covering small and large areas alike more efficiently with the same or better level of precision.
Other benefits include:
The Vivace microneedling treatment at Artemedica
Vivace microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that delivers stunning results. At Artemedica, your clinician will administer a personalized compounded numbing cream to ensure a pain-free experience. You may feel some light pressure or prickling sensation, but these should be very minimal at best. The length of your session will depend on the area to be treated, but most sessions are roughly 30-45 minutes long. In fact, many patients come in during their lunch break. After treatment, patients are given a soothing peptide mask and a specialized boost serum for at-home care to reduce redness and discomfort as well as help with hydration.
Recovery after Vivace microneedling
Immediately following your Vivace Ultra RF microneedling treatment, you may turn to your regular daily activities although we suggest patients avoid vigorous exercise for at least 24 hours. We also suggest that you avoid spending time in direct sunlight without sunscreen and refrain from wearing makeup or using certain skincare products. If you have any questions about what skincare products to avoid, feel free to ask your clinician or aesthetician. Following treatment, your skin may become a little pink and sensitive with slight swelling. These side effects should diminish within 12 – 24 hours. You may experience dryness or itchiness in the following days as your body sheds dead skin cells.
Your skincare concerns and desired results will determine the number of treatments needed. Many providers find that 4 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, provide the optimal results patients are looking for. You and your skin care provider can discuss a personalized treatment regimen tailored just for you.
