VIVACE** is the technique of using a radiofrequency (electrical) energy in the deep layers of the skin to help stimulate and tighten the skin.
It is ideal for thin skin that has lost its tone with criss-cross wrinkling. At Appmed House we have also had exciting success treating acne with a combination of Vivace and prescription creams.
What is involved in the treatment?
The treatment itself consists of placing a hand piece against the surface of the skin and activating radio frequency energy. The hand piece consists of a multiple needle head that is accurately applied within a specified depth.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This in effect creates a solid foundation of new dermal volume.
6 to 12 treatments are recommended spaced every 1 to 4 weeks with a maintenance regime to follow. The treatment takes 30 minutes to perform and for most it is quite bare-able however topical local anaesthesia can be used if the patient does find it too sore.
