What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein found in the dermal layer of your skin. It’s the protein responsible for keeping your skin strong and resilient.
As you get older, collagen production decreases, leading to many of the visible signs of aging, like facial lines, wrinkles, and creases.
During traditional microneedling, an aesthetic expert uses a special device with tiny needles that perforate the surface layer of your skin, causing micro-tears. These tiny injuries quickly close but stimulate your skin’s healing process, including the production of collagen.
At Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation, the team uses Vivace for microneedling treatments to give your skin an added boost in collagen production.
Is the newest revolution of microneedling with radio frequency heat in skin contouring and tightening. This procedure combined with PRP (platelet rich plasma) stimulates collagen production that leads to tighter-looking skin with minimal downtime. Progressive results with four monthly treatments.
WHAT IS VIVACE?
Vivace is an advanced aesthetic device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology. During treatment, while the Vivace device creates the micro-tears in the surface of your skin, the tiny needles also deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of your skin.
Combining these two aesthetic treatments improves skin healing, skin cell turnover, and the production of collagen to give you even more dramatic results.
The Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation team may also combine Vivace microneedling treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is a form of regenerative medicine that accelerates your skin’s healing process.
What can I expect during a microneedling treatment?
Your provider at Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation customizes your microneedling treatment plan to match your specific needs. They review the details of your plan at your consultation, so you know what to expect.
First, your provider applies a numbing lotion to your skin to ease discomfort during treatment. They cleanse your skin with an antibacterial cloth and then start your session. You may feel pressure and warmth during a microneedling treatment but no pain.
You may have some redness and swelling immediately following your session and may want to spend the rest of your day relaxing at home. You should see improvements in your skin right away. But, there’s no need for downtime following microneedling.
Giovinezza Laser and Skin Rejuvenation recommends four monthly microneedling treatments to get the best results.
