Vivace Microneedling in Orange County
Vivace Microneedling is a new treatment option for Orange County residents who want tight, youthful looking skin on their face, neck and body. This procedure uses sterile gold plated needles that penetrate to varying depths beneath your skin — combined with carefully controlled radio frequency energy – to reduce pore size, wrinkles and stretch marks. In addition, Vivace Microneedling decreases your skin’s oil levels and controls acne.
Vivace Microneedling is recommended for residents of Orange County who are self-conscious about loose skin, wrinkles, acne, scars and stretch marks. In an area of the United States where looks are extremely important, these imperfections can detract from your appearance and make you feel self-conscious.
How does Vivace Microneedling work?
As we age, our bodies produce less elastin and collagen. This causes our skin to have less structure and elasticity, which ultimately causes our skin to sag and form wrinkles. Vivace Microneedling’s unique hand-held device uses variable length, tiny gold plated needles and radio frequency to penetrate your skin and increase the production of your body’s natural collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin repairs itself by dissolving and replacing damaged tissue. This naturally tightens your skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scars – leaving you with smoother, younger looking skin.
Vivace Microneedling creates micro-channels in your skin that remain open for up to six hours following treatment. This allows us to introduce customized treatment serums to improve your results. One of these serums – the Perpetual Pursuit of Perfection Boost Glide Serum – contains growth factors and peptides to further rejuvenate your skin.
In addition to microneedles, the hand piece delivers adjustable Radio Frequency (RF) energy. The red RF energy stimulates collagen and the blue energy helps reduce oil production in your skin. Unlike lasers, RF-based treatments deliver energy below your pigment-producing cells and do not increase the pigment in your skin. It is safe for all skin types and ethnicities.
Can Vivace Microneedling be customized to my needs?
Yes! Vivace Microneedling is extremely customizable. We are able to select the size, depth and flexibility of the needles leaving you with a tailored treatment. We can also control the length of time the needles are in contact with your skin and the power of the radio-frequency waves. After your consultation we will choose the optimal settings needed to create the results you desire. Because Vivace Microneedling is so customizable, the success of your treatment is highly dependent on the skill of the provider
What happens during a Vivace Microneedling treatment?
You will be provided a topical anesthetic to apply to your skin 30 minutes prior to your treatment to keep you comfortable. We will then use a hand piece to open the skin channels. Treatments take between 30 and 60 minutes and can be performed on all parts of your body due to the flexibility of the treatment.
These microscopic openings, also called “fractionated injuries” can stay open for 4 to 6 hours, which is the key to a successful outcome. Based on your desired results we administer additional serums to rejuvenate your skin and promote healing. Studies show that these micro-channels can increase the absorption of topical treatments by more than 80 percent.
What conditions does Vivace Microneedling treat?
Vivace Microneedling can improve acne, reduce pore size, decrease wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and reduce stretch marks. Vivace Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body.
How many Vivace Microneedling treatments will I need?
We generally recommend a series of three or more treatments. However, our recommendation will vary depending on your skin’s condition and your goals. Treatments are usually spaced three weeks apart at our Orange County office. We will provide you with a treatment plan during your consultation.
