Vivace RF Microneedling Vivace is an FDA-approved device that combines the power of radiofrequency energy with the benefits of microneedling to produce gorgeous and glowing skin. Vivace is an excellent solution for patients who want to see a more even and radiant complexion, as well as a reduction in wrinkles, fine lines, and even hyperpigmentation. The best candidates for Vivace RF Microneedling may have mild-to-moderate signs of aging, and want to see younger, more even-looking skin. How It Works Vivace uses about 36 tiny needles to penetrate the skin and pass radiofrequency (i.e. heat) energy to the deeper levels of the dermis. Don’t worry, there’s minimal discomfort involved; most patients compare it to feeling sandpaper being smoothed across the skin. The radiofrequency energy can be customized to the person’s exact skin care needs, making it an excellent solution for most skin types and tones. The entire treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes to perform; your Plymouth Meeting Dermatology technician will help you determine how many treatments you need to see your best results. Area It Treats Vivace RF Microneedling can be used to treat most areas of the body that may be suffering from common aging symptoms. The most popular treatment areas include the face and chest. Benefits Vivace RF Microneedling results can be seen in as little as one to three weeks; you may need more than one treatment to see your best results. Your skin will be sensitive after each treatment, so it’s important to wear sunscreen whenever you’re exposed to the sun. How Can I Make My Treatments More Effective? While Vivace alone will produce excellent results, you may be wondering if there is anything else that you can do to enhance your results. the answer is yes! Dermatology Associates of Plymouth Meeting is excited to offer PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy. After a simple blood draw, platelets are separated while you wait. Your specialist will re-insert the growth factors, platelets, and stem cells into the treatment area. The enriched plasma helps to repair and build new skin cells. DAOPM also offers products that will help with skin rejuvenation and treatment recovery. Alastin products are available in the office and can help to improve your Vivace treatment results. “It is difficult to conceive that for years the idea of preparing our patient’s skin for a laser procedure was ignored. With Skin Nectar, Alastin has changed the paradigm and created a product that “prejuvinates” the skin for laser resurfacing whereby reducing downtime and enhancing results. Nearly every resurfacing patient starts their nectar 2 weeks prior to treatment and continues on with the Restorative Skin Complex when they are done. Our patients return for more because they not only love the feel but they see results as well.” Dr. Thomas Griffin. Jr. Dr. Thomas Griffin.
