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.

Peptide Aqua Gel Body Mask is specially designed with an innovative technology called TCD (Transdermal Cosmetic Delivery), which regulates the activation and penetration of key ingredients by means of acclimation; the mask slowly absorbs body heat to release its vital components to the skin. The gel mask, embedded with active ingredients, will gradually thin out when it comes in contact with the skin to deliver optimal hydration, soothing comfort, anti-aging, and skin conditioning benefits. This serves as visible evidence of ingredient absorption. We love to use it on the neck, chest, arms, abdomen, thighs and knees for hydration and collagen production to decrease crepiness and wrinkles.click to purchase

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.
