Before the VIVACE™ treatment is administered, we apply a special topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort. If PRP is being added to the procedure, your blood is drawn while you wait for the numbing cream to take effect. Your blood is then spun in a centrifuge to prepare the PRP for use. Once the skin is suitably numb, the VIVACE™ treatment begins. The VIVACE™ system gently and precisely places micro needles into the skin and then delivers RadioFrequency (RF) energy through the needles into the skin. The RF energy spreads warmth throughout the treatment area and deep in the skin layers. This warmth stimulates the production of new collagen elastin in the area, which begins immediately and will continue for months following the procedure. Finally, your PRP, full of growth factors, is applied topically to the treatment area, accelerating healing and providing a final boost to the collagen regeneration that follows.
