Vivace RF Microneedling Reviews
"Yesterday I received Vivace microneedling with radio frequency and as an experienced esthetician in my mid 60's, I am very picky about having any treatments. Stella, an RN, delivered my treatment with meticulous precision and it was what I consider an intense treatment to deliver as we did face, neck and chest. She went over each spot 3 times and didn't miss a beat, and I was following every move she made. She is an educator/trainer for this piece of equipment and I know I was in the best hands because she teaches doctors how to use it for maximum results. From the front desk to the treatment room, Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery is cutting edge and it's staff is the cream of the crop."- C.R. / Facebook / Jun 29, 2017
"I love Dr. Sadati, his office and his staff....have never had anything but positive experiences here. Everyone is so nice!! My review is primarily around Elizabeth Lyford, RN, who I have been seeing for Vivace Microneedling with PRP since last year. I do this preventative treatment about every 2-3 months, as it helps with collagen production and skin elasticity. Elizabeth has been nothing short of amazing. Not only is she super-friendly, she has an awesome "bedside manner" and we always have the best chats. She is also clearly VERY knowledgable and skilled in ALL aspects of skincare, as we are always discussing the latest skincare ingredients, products, and treatments...we definitely have established a trusted relationship! The results from Vivace are also nothing short of amazing...from a preventative perspective, it's a GREAT investment....it definitely helps you need LESS Fillers...and you have a very NATURAL result. :) I am about to purchase another package of Vivace w/ PRP treatments I'm so happy!!! :)"- K.W. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2018
Vivace RF Microneedling procedure Technique
Vivace RF microneedling’s unique handheld 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. The red RF energy stimulates collagen and the blue energy helps reduce oil production in your skin. The microchannels also allows us to introduce customized treatment serums to improve your results. As a result, your skin repairs itself by dissolving and replacing damaged tissue. It is safe for all skin types and ethnicities.
Vivace RF Microneedling During/After 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 handpiece to open the skin's channels. Treatments take between 30 – 60 minutes and can be performed on all parts of the body due to the flexibility of the procedure.
These microscopic openings, also called “fractionated injuries,” can stay open for 4 – 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. These serums contain growth factors, peptides, and anti-aging compounds to further rejuvenate your skin. This naturally tightens your skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scars — leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin.
