OFFERED WITH PLATELET-RICH PLASMA
Vivace Microneedling RF uses 36 micro-needles to transmit radio frequency waves beneath the epidermis in order to stimulate collagen growth. The radio frequency is an added feature that is unique to the Vivace Microneedling tool. The radio frequency emitted with the microneedling alleviates wrinkles, fine lines, breaks up scarring, and helps tighten the skin. The technique also minimizes the size of pores, improving skin tone, and texture.
In addition to our signature Microneedling procedure, we offer Microneedling RF with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) aka Vampire Facial. The Vampire Facial procedure has become one of the hottest treatments to hit the beauty scene…and for good reason!
Liquid gold, in the form of your own blood’s plasma, is the catalyst of this procedure, as it is essentially used as a serum during your microneedling treatment to further stimulate collagen production and other growth factors which contribute to the health and repair of skin.
Found in platelet-rich plasma are life-giving fundamental protein growth factors which are known to have various effects and are used to treat various medical conditions. Some of the well known effects include:
Additional growth factors found in plasma also play a role in the overall positive effects seen from Vampire Facials.
Microneedling addresses a host of skin issues including:
Results can be seen immediately following your treatment. Skin is typically tight, plump, and glowing. You will likely also experience redness, dryness, and possible swelling immediately following your procedure. Results are long lasting and will continue to improve over time, as the elastin and collagen being produced is your own. Accelerated production could continue up to 6 months after your treatment.
Actual treatment time is about 45 minutes, with an additional 30-45 minutes needed for numbing.
Redness is common immediately following the procedure and could last up to 24 hours. Slight swelling and bruising could also occur. But some patients go out just hours after their procedures with very little to no indication of having a treatment that day.
Recommended number of treatments varies from patient to patient based on their desired results, but an important factor to consider is that skin issues that have persisted for years may not be treated in one session. Generally, we recommend at least 2 sessions, as the first one cleanses the skin of debris and initiate collagen growth. During the second session we can focus on targeting problem areas, and since the pores are cleansed following the first session, your skin will be better able to absorb the PRP.
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the Vivace treatment during the first four to six hours, use the Soothe Weekly Mask and Soothe Recovery System provided after your treatment. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and you may even wait until the next morning.
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with an occasional, light sparking feeling.
A Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream, the best numbing cream available, is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience throughout the treatment. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free.
No! This is a common expectation since many celebrities have been seen with red blood on their face after a “Vampire Facial”. Believe it or not, we don’t even use the red blood cells during your facial. The powerful stuff is that “liquid gold”, your blood’s plasma, which is what we use as a serum during your microneedling treatment. You blood is drawn before you begin your microneedling and the plasma is separated from the red blood cells via centrifuge to provide all the wonderful growth factors that aid in skin elasticity and rejuvenation!
