A facelift can restore your face to a more youthful appearance by removing excess sagging skin and re-positioning the underlying layers into the proper position. Depending on the type of facelift performed, results can last anywhere from a couple of years to ten or more years, however, you will always look younger than you would have if a facelift had not been performed. Although you can’t stop your face from continuing to age, there are ways to prolong your facelift results! Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and proper skin care routine (which includes daily sunscreen) are the first steps, but you can also improve and maintain your results with Vivace RF microneedling with or without added Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP).
A New Way to Tighten and Contour your Face
Micro-needling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate new collagen growth, which helps to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Micro-needling pens have been around for decades, but the new, FDA-approved microneedling system called Vivace optimizes the benefits of regular microneedling by combining radio frequency energy. The heat energy is delivered through each tiny needle to heat beneath the skin. This technology not only stimulates collagen production, but it also encourages elastin production, something micro-needling pens don’t do. The result is tightened skin, a reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles, improved texture and tone, diminished scarring, and more! At BioSpa, Vivace RF micro-needling is performed with specially formulated serums or PRP (a patient’s own blood) to further enhance the result.
Minimally Invasive and Virtually Painless
Vivace microneedling is non-invasive and can be performed with a topical anesthetic to numb the skin. This makes the process virtually pain free. Some patients may experience mild redness for a period of up to 24 hours following their treatment, but Vivace is truly a walk in, walk out procedure which can be done just prior to an important event. Vivace microneedling is a great way to maintain your youthful look after a facelift procedure to avoid or prolong needing a second one in the future. You will notice immediate results with continued improvement as your new skin is generated. Along with reduced lines and wrinkles, skin tone and texture will improve. Most patients require a series of 3-4 Vivace micro-needling treatments to achieve optimal results.
