Garramone Plastic Surgery is pleased to announce that it is the first practice in Southwest Florida to offer Vivace Fractional Micro Needle RF

A nonsurgical treatment for tightening the skin of the face, neck, hands and body. It stimulates the natural production of collagen and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Vivace is an FDA-cleared device that combines microneedling with radio frequency (RF) and light-emitting diode (LED) therapy.

The three-in-one device treats the skin under topical anesthesia with no downtime. The process utilizes sterile microneedles to create microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin, while radio frequency provides heat, stimulating the body to produce new collagen. LEDs provide red or blue light therapy and is applied immediately following the treatment.

A game-changing benefit of using the Vivace microneedling technique versus historical laser or other radio frequency devices is that it allows the microscopic channels to remain open for several hours, thereby allowing the topical treatment to penetrate the skin longer and create immediate results. Vivace is fully customizable and virtually pain free with no downtime.
