The path toward youthful, wrinkle-free skin is often littered with false promises. But what if there was a treatment that offered more than promises? Enter Vivace. What is it? At Dermatology Realm in Germantown, we offer a groundbreaking skincare approach that merges science, technology, and your body’s natural healing abilities to deliver actual, transformative results.
What is Vivace?
Vivace (vee-VAH-Chee) is a novel skincare treatment with a non-surgical solution for contouring and tightening the face and neck. Our skin naturally loses its stretchiness and firmness as we become older. The result? Fine lines and wrinkles. Vivace is designed to combat these signs of aging by stimulating collagen production. This protein is crucial in maintaining the skin’s strength and elasticity.
The beauty of Vivace lies in its innovative approach to skincare. It combines the benefits of micro-needling and radiofrequency energy to deliver an effective and minimally invasive treatment. Micro-needling involves using tiny needles to create minor injuries on the skin’s surface. This process triggers the body’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production. On the other hand, radiofrequency energy penetrates more profound layers of the skin, promoting further collagen production and tissue tightening.
But Vivace doesn’t stop there. To enhance the treatment experience and results, Dermatology Realm combines Vivace with the latest in numbing technology, treatment serums, and recovery care. This comprehensive approach provides a virtually painless experience. We work hard to minimize downtime, making it convenient for patients with packed schedules (like you).
Vivace is more than just a treatment; it’s a commitment to more robust, glowing skin. By harnessing the body’s natural healing capabilities and the power of advanced skincare technology, Vivace offers a solution beyond surface-level improvements to deliver lasting, natural-looking results.
The Vivace Experience
The Vivace experience is a unique blend of advanced technology and skincare expertise designed to provide patients with superior, natural-looking results. Furthermore, it uses a specialized treatment serum and cooling peptide mask, creating a comprehensive skincare solution that addresses various concerns.
Micro-needling and radiofrequency energy work together to encourage collagen production and tighten the skin. The specialized treatment serum, applied during the procedure, is designed to enhance these effects by delivering potent skincare ingredients directly into the skin. Following the treatment, a cooling peptide mask is applied to soothe the skin and reduce potential inflammation, ensuring a comfortable recovery.
The benefits of the Vivace experience are manifold. You may notice a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, a tightening of your skin, and a decrease in the size of your pores. Additionally, Vivace can improve skin tone and texture, resulting in a younger, more vibrant complexion. Moreover, the treatment is pain-free, thanks to the latest numbing technology.
How Does Vivace Treatment Work?
The Vivace treatment process is a testament to Dermatology Realm’s commitment to providing a comfortable and practical skincare experience. The process begins with the application of a topical anesthetic numbing cream. This topical anesthetic helps you experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. The numbing cream takes about 30–45 minutes to become fully effective.
Once the skin is numb, the Vivace handheld device delivers radiofrequency energy as heat, which helps the lower dermis layer of the skin via tiny needles. These needles create precise micro-damage that triggers the body’s cell-regeneration process. This natural healing response remodels the skin’s structural proteins—collagen and elastin—and stimulates more production. Over time, this results in firmer, plumper, and smoother skin.
After the treatment, it’s essential to keep the skin clear and free of makeup or other skincare products for at least six hours, if not overnight. Due to the tiny holes pricked in the skin from the device, the skin is more sensitive to anything applied during this period. For best results, patients are also advised to avoid direct sun exposure, excessive sweating, and steam for a couple of days following the treatment. This careful aftercare helps the skin heal correctly, and the full benefits of the Vivace treatment can be realized.
Does Vivace Hurt?
One of the most common concerns when considering a skincare treatment is the level of discomfort involved. With Vivace, Dermatology Realm has taken great strides to give you a virtually pain-free experience. Patients often describe the sensation during the treatment as a feeling of light pressure and an occasional “sparking” feeling. This results from the handheld Vivace device’s combination of micro-needling and radiofrequency energy.
Our team will apply a topical anesthetic numbing cream before we start treatment. It helps make you more comfortable. This numbing cream takes about 30–45 minutes to become fully effective, significantly reducing any potential discomfort during the procedure. Most patients report minimal pain during their 45-minute treatment, making Vivace a comfortable and convenient option for skin rejuvenation.
When Can You See the Results of Vivace Treatment?
One of its most appealing features is the timeline for seeing results from Vivace treatment. Your skin may look smoother and brighter within hours of your treatment, offering immediate gratification. However, the most significant results rely on your body’s natural production of collagen, which takes several weeks.
The skin tone, texture, and overall appearance improvements continue to develop for up to six weeks with each treatment. This improvement is because the micro-damage caused by the Vivace treatment triggers a healing response that remodels your skin’s structural proteins and stimulates the production of more collagen and elastin. The best results are typically seen about six months after beginning Vivace, as the skin becomes firmer, plumper, and smoother over time. This gradual improvement ensures natural-looking and long-lasting results, offering a genuinely transformative skincare experience.
