Vivace


Skin texture is an often overlooked component when it comes to looking and feeling your best. At Nazarian Plastic Surgery, we have long understood that glowing, smooth skin is one of the best self-confidence boosters around. This is one of the many reasons why we are such fans of Vivace, a non-surgical procedure designed to improve not just your skin texture, but also your skin tone. This cutting-edge technology is so effective because it combines two of our favorite procedures in one: microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. Safe and extremely versatile, Vivace has quickly become one of our go-to procedures for addressing everything from enlarged pores to sun damage to sagging skin.

What is the Vivace?

Vivace microneedling combines two of our favorite procedures in one: microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy for improving:
  • skin texture
  • fine lines
  • acne scars
  • stretch marks
  • pore size
  • breaking up pigmentation in combination with peels or lasers
It works by inflicting a series of micro-injuries to the skin in the treatment area. The body’s natural response to any skin injury is to produce more collagen and elastin in order to heal. By combining the microneedling with RF energy, Vivace is able to deliver the heat produced by the radiofrequency into the deeper layers of your dermis. The end result is smoother, tighter, visibly brighter looking skin.

Benefits of Vivace

One of the nicest things about your Vivace procedure is that you will notice a difference in your skin in as little as one day. But because of the collagen and elastin boosting benefits of its microneedling and RF combination, these results will continue to improve with time. Furthermore, the Vivace procedure is:
  • safe
  • effective
  • comfortable
  • requires no downtime
  • fast results in as early as one day
  • non-surgical so no incisions
  • safe for ALL skin colors and types
The latter is a huge plus. Many of the procedures to improve skin texture such as lasers and chemical peels are not great for patients with darker skin or who run a high risk of hyperpigmentation as they may actually produce more pigment. Vivace gives these patients an effective method for improving skin tone and texture without the usual potentially adverse side effects.

Ideal Candidate for Vivace

The combination of microneedling and RF energy in Vivace is ideal for any patient, man or woman, who is bothered by:
  • dull looking skin
  • large pores
  • redness
  • hyperpigmentation
  • sun damage
  • lax skin in the lower face
  • acne or acne scars
  • fine lines & wrinkles
As discussed, it is effective on all skin tones and is great for restoring a crisp look to the jawline, smoothing out and plumping the skin under your eyes and tightening up the mid-face and neck. Ideal for patients who don’t want surgery, Vivace is also a wonderful method for patients who have had surgery to maintain their fabulous results.

Vivace is Versatile

One of the things that we love about Vivace is that it is so versatile. The micro-needles are insulated, meaning that the last 300 microns are left open to deliver the RF energy. Furthermore, Dr. Nazarian and her team can adjust the depth of the needles from 3 1/2 mm to 2 1/2 mm to 1 1/2 mm or a combination of all three. This allows us to completely customize the Vivace experience to your individual needs and address multiple different skin issues in one procedure. The insulation means that the energy is not delivered to the upper layers of the skin where hyperpigmentation can happen. This is why this device is safe for all skin types. The Vivace device also has an LED light component that can be tailored to your specific skin concerns. The Blue LED kills the bacteria that causes acne break-outs while the Red LED is great for anti-aging and collagen production. The Vivace hand-piece is also adept at treating different parts of your face and neck. For the body, we prefer the Morpheus8. We most commonly use Vivace to lift, smooth and plump skin on your:
  • cheeks
  • mid-face
  • jawline
  • neck

Frequently
Asked Questions

Microneedling looks like a torture device. Does it hurt?

While every patient has his or her own unique pain threshold, most find Vivace extremely easy to tolerate. We use a really great numbing cream that we have specially compounded with a Versapro carrier so it’s much more effective than other numbing creams out here. Also, you should know that the needles are incredibly fine so though they make look scary, they don’t hurt. I have had the procedure done myself and found it almost relaxing. Honestly, my skin didn’t even feel irritated afterwards. It’s one of those procedures that goes against the adage ‘no pain, no gain’.

How does Vivace work?

Vivace is a non-invasive treatment that uses a microneedling device to deliver radio frequency (RF) energy into the deeper layers of your dermis. This allows the heating action of the RF to immediately tighten both the surface of your skin as well as its underlying structures. This is why it’s able to address such a wide range of skin tone and texture issues. Furthermore, over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced by your body in response to these “injuries”. This results in even more skin tightening and texture improvements for healthier, smoother and more youthful looking skin.

Is there any downtime associated with Vivace?

No. Your skin will look flushed after your procedure. But it’s no worse than how you look after an intense workout. And when you wake up the next day, the flush is gone and you are left with fantastic looking skin. It is really that simple.

Can Vivace be used to prevent acne?

Yes, Vivace can definitely improve acne break-outs as the RF heat shuts down the glands that produce the oil and the Blue LED light kills that bacteria that causes the break outs.

How do I know what’s best for me: microneedling, RF or a combination procedure such as Vivace?

It is our job to assess your skin and figure out the right procedure for delivering on your goals. This is why we are adamant that patients come in for an in-person or virtual consultation. We want all of our Beverly Hills and beyond patients to be happy. The best way to achieve this is to match the right procedure with the right patient.
