Terry Conrad, APRN, and her team are pleased to offer the FDA-cleared Vivace RF microneedling system to patients in Greenwich, Connecticut. Since being introduced in spring 2019, these state-of-the art microneedling treatments have become extremely popular with patients who wish to rejuvenate their complexions with virtually no downtime. This is the rare, truly effective cosmetic procedure that our patients can have at noon and be ready to go out-on-the-town by dinner.

Benefits of Vivace RF Microneedling

Using its revolutionary technologies, Vivace RF microneedling can help address and improve the appearance of several common complexion problems and signs of aging by providing the following benefits:

  • Softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles through collagen stimulation
  • Minimizing pore size
  • Improving the overall tone and appearance of the complexion, making the skin appear more youthful, radiant, and smooth
  • Correcting hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage and medical conditions such as rosacea
  • Addressing skin demarcations, including those caused by scars or acne

In addition to treating the face, patients can opt to have Vivace RF therapy to address signs of aging and tighten the skin of the neck, décolleté, shoulders and body.

Some of Naturallyou’s Vivace patients are combining this therapy with applications of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to maximize their results and further stimulate collagen production.

Vivace may be the most pleasant cosmetic procedure I’ve ever experienced. I was chatting with Terry throughout my first treatment and barely winced. I left the office at 2 p.m. with red skin, but my complexion was back to normal by dinner! I’ve since had three more treatments and am starting to notice great results. My skin looks buttery smooth and I’ve noticed a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and a softening of some deeper, problem lines around my mouth. The best part? I’m getting lots of compliments. -Beth F., Fairfield, Ct.

What to Expect

After cleansing the skin to remove makeup and debris, numbing cream is offered to prep treatment areas for the Vivace RF therapy.  (Note: At Naturallyou, many of our patients have told us the treatment is so painless and tolerable they choose to skip this step and have their treatments without numbing cream.)

After the skin is ready, the patient reclines while we use a small handheld device to gently deliver the potent combination of needle stimulation and radiofrequency energy to the skin. The Vivace device can be adjusted so its tiny needles lightly prick the skin or penetrate deeper, allowing for the procedure to be customized to the needs of the patient as well as their personal tolerance for the minimal discomfort associated with the treatment.

We perform each Vivace procedure in much the same way she would a custom facial treatment, providing the therapy in a gentle, soothing manner for maximum comfort and relaxation. After each treatment, she gently applies a chilled cooling mask to calm the skin, followed by an application of a broad-spectrum moisturizing sunscreen. The entire session takes about an hour.

We give patients a follow-up care kit that includes peptide-boosting serums to use at home to further stimulate the complexion and maximize the benefits of the procedure over time.

Terry’s Tip: While the skin will have a flushed, sunburned appearance immediately after receiving Vivace RF therapy, the intense color subsides within hours.

What to Know

While Naturallyou’s patients are reporting great results from their Vivace procedures, this type of collagen-stimulating therapy takes time to work its magic. It can take several weeks or months, and a series of treatments, to yield optimal results.

Naturallyou recommends 3 to 4 Vivace treatments for best outcomes and suggests a follow-up treatment scheduled about 6 months after the last treatment to maintain beautiful and lasting results.
