Vivace is an energy based device involving a combination of microneedling, radiofrequency, and LED light therapy. Due to this incorporation of three modern advances in dermatology, Vivace treatments have proven to be the next wave of skin rejuvenation therapy. Not only is Vivace capable of enhancing the appearance of patients, but it has also proven to produce quick results; the incorporation of both LED light and radiofrequency technology helps to accelerate collagen production and tighten the face. The treatments are virtually painless and patients generally feel comfortable with being in public following the treatment, unlike many other similar cosmetic treatments.

The technology behind the Vivace device has proven to be able to treat:
  • Facial wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Loose skin on the face and neck
  • Acne scars
What is Laser Genesis?

An available energy based device that involves a non-invasive procedure where a laser is used to gently heat the skin. Due to the application of heat from the laser, the skin is stimulated to produce new skin cells and collagen. Specifically, this production in collagen can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. On the other hand, the heat from the laser can help to constrict blood vessels, which precisely assists in fighting rosacea and redness.  Interestingly, laser genesis is able to treat all patients regardless of skin tone and age with fine lines and redness. 

The use of Laser Genesis is used to treat patients with:

  • Fine lines
  • Dark spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Redness
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Rosacea 
  • Acne
