Perhaps you have heard of a treatment called “microneedling” that helps skin look younger, healthier and for scar reduction. Also known as “Collagen induction therapy, ” also known as microneedling or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. These small wounds cause your body to increase production of collagen and elastin, which in turn, help heal your skin and make its appearance look younger and more refreshed. One of the newest and most sought-after microneedling treatments called Vivace is now available at AALC in Annapolis!
What Is Vivace? How Does It Work?
Vivace is a minimally-invasive skin treatment that combines microneedling and radio frequency waves to tighten skin and improve texture. This procedure is the latest in high-tech, anti-aging skin care, allowing you to both look and feel your best at every age. Microneedling is a process that creates hundreds of miniature punctures in the skin tissue, working to stimulate collagen and cellular renewal. The radio frequency energy is used to heat the tissue and stimulate even more collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. The procedure requires a small amount of numbing cream applied to the target area, which allows to treatment itself to be entirely painless. Vivace was designed to help you age gracefully, with minimal wrinkles and maintaining a natural look. One of the best parts about Vivace is that it requires no downtime – Patients can return immediately to their daily activities, radiating more confidence than ever.
This patient from the photo above had loose skin on her lower abdomen due to lost elasticity from pregnancy. Vivace’s impressive ability to stimulate collagen production has drastically improved the appearance of sagging skin. All potential Vivace patients at AALC will attend a consultation with one of our licensed and Vivace-certified professionals to come up with a unique treatment plan specific to your needs and desired outcome. Most patients opt to have three treatments over the span of several weeks to achieve optimal results, however some clients are totally satisfied with only one treatment. The treatment itself takes about 30-45 minutes per session. Though results differ with each patient, the collagen and elastin produced by the body due to the Vivace continue at an accelerated pace over six months on average, allowing the results to improve over that time.
