‘It’s long lasting and there is no downtime.’
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The pursuit of youth and beauty has become an easier journey along the Space Coast with the introduction this month by Biocellular Therapies of the Vivace RF microneedling system, used in conjunction with amnion-based gels and creams for optimum performance in promoting the development of collagen for easing fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin.
“We’re a biologic practice and this fits right in,” said Jim Eaker, coordinator for the Melbourne-based practice. “This is truly regenerative medicine.”
Microneedling is not news, but the Vivace, which received approval from the FDA in July after extensive trials, is way ahead of the previous competition, particularly when combined with the unique gels and creams elected by Biocellular Therapies as part of the treatment plan.
“The Vivace is the only robotic microneedling device available,” said Eaker.
Using robotics to deliver radio frequency and microneedling extremely accurately in order to gently heat and tighten the targeted area, the Vivace also differs from other devices of its kind in the number of needles used for treatment.
The system can be used with all skin types and reaches the deepest layers of the skin to stimulate and tighten.
MOMMY MAKEOVER: BioCellular Therapies’ patient and nurse practitioner talks about her trifecta body rejuvenation, including the Vampire Facelift and Breastlift, and the O-Shot®.
“Most microneedling devices use 10 to 12 needles, while Vivace features 36 gold needles to better stimulate collagen said Eaker. “Typical microneedling requires two or three passes over an area. With Vivace, you only need one pass.”
Eaker himself literally walked the walk about the Vivace and was one of the first patients locally to try the new system. Although he believes the majority of patients will seek the Vivace for help with the face, neck and decollate, Eaker points out that the versatile Vivace can successfully decrease the signs of aging in other parts of the body. He chose to focus on his calves.
“I think my face looks good for my age, but my calves not so much,” he said. “I want to be able to walk around the mall without feeling self-conscious.”
Designed to be used by physicians, the Vivace reaches underneath the epidermis for amazing results with no downtime. The device can be precisely targeted to the depth needed for individual desired results.
Topical anesthesia is used in the application of the sterile microneedles used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis to stimulate the body to produce new collagen, the protein that is the main component of connective tissue.
The substance literally holds the body together, but as we age, collagen production declines, and thus we end with the saggy skin, lines and wrinkles we hate.
Vivace kickstarts the production of collagen with delivery of the RF energy that is so precise it allows up to 36 varying depths of penetration to ensure exceptional outcomes regardless of skin condition.
A personalized compounded numbing cream is used to minimize discomfort and make for a more relaxing experience during the 40-minute procedure. The small diameter needles are much more comfortable and a smooth micro-motor advances the needles into the dermis without the pain often associated with older microneedling systems.
“Microneedling is usually administered in a series of three to six treatments, but it was found that 30 percent of patients opted not to use the third treatment because of the pain,” said Eaker.
“Vivace has been available since July and there have been no recorded cases of patients foregoing treatment because of pain.”
Treatment serum and gel take the outcome to the next level, since these products deliver additional growth factors to the treated area for optimal results. While many amnion creams are shipped at room temperature, which decreases their efficacy, Biocellular Therapies’ special version is shipped cold to take advantage of all of its growth factors.
Perhaps the best part of the treatment is that there is no waiting for the results.
“You’ll notice immediately,” said Eaker.
Fine lines appear diminished and the skin regains its youthful tight quality. Those creepy lines at the throat are reduced. Deep laugh lines become more superficial. The jaw line again becomes defined. Pores become smaller. The treatment is also beneficial in the treatment of acne scars and reduces the secretion of skin oils, or seborrhea.
Another significant advancement is its ability to treat various types of scar tissue from deep lines and wrinkles to acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks. In fact, stretch mark treatment has become a very popular procedure due to the massive improvement in appearance.
Patients note that their family and friends quickly notice the change, which is natural and youthful, the way aesthetic treatments should be.
Beverly Hills, California, plastic surgeon Dr. Sheila Nazarian was one of the first to incorporate Vivace into her treatment options. Even in demanding Beverly Hills, where looks are everything and where the possibilities for rejuvenation procedures seem endless, the system is performing admirably.
“I’ve been getting text messages from my patients the next day wanting me to see how their skin looks,” said Nazarian in a testimonial to the manufacturer, Aesthetics Biomedical, Inc.
“It’s long lasting and there is no downtime. So, there really is no excuse. Who doesn’t want to look amazing!”
