Hormones and Your Skin; The Vivace Effect

Skin Revitalization Women's Health

Do you have patients that are suffering from acne prone skin or are looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars? Changes to your patients skin can often leave them feeling very self-conscious and frustrated. A big factor in skin changes are hormones, which can fluctuate at any age resulting in hormonal acne.

What causes hormonal acne?

Hormonal acne is caused by an excess of oil production in the body, which can clog the pores of your patients skin. This can be triggered by a variety of factors that can have a large effect on how much oil your skin produces. Genetics play an important factor, especially when hormonal acne is hereditary. The consumption of foods with a high glycemic index (high-GI) such a white bread and cakes, as well as a lack of sleep, which produces cortisol (leading to inflammation) and stress, are all contributing factors to changes in the skin and common causes of acne.

How is the Vivace Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling treatment better than regular microneedling?

For patients suffering with hormonal acne, microneedling delivers energy deep into the dermal layers stimulating collagen and elastin production. Collagen is an essential protein that works to keep the skin looking dense, smooth and youthful. Collagen can also be lost through skin injury such as acne scarring or stretchmarks. Due to this, microneedling addresses these common skin concerns, as well as uneven skin texture and enlarged pores to rejuvenate the skin for a visibly smoother, radiant and renewed complexion.

This revolutionary form of treatment combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) technology and LED light therapy to create the ultimate 3-in-1 treatment. The Vivace device has a combination of 36 insulated gold tipped needles that penetrate the skin smoothly and evenly delivering deeper thermal energy, which offers the ability to effectively treat active acne and scarring. This combined with a repetitive puncture stimulates wound healing and skin renewal to provide a skin tightening and lifting effect in a single treatment. The Vivace device uses a combination of both red and blue LED light. The red light targets inflammation and works to promote healing and skin rejuvenation, whilst the blue light targets bacteria and improves active acne.

A single treatment last approximately 45 minutes, and is designed with virtually no pain and no downtime required.

If your patients are suffering from acne prone skin or are looking for a new way to reduce the appearance of acne scars and improve their skin tone and texture, Vivace is the next generation of professional microneedling treatments to target their skin needs.

As a result, your patients can walk away with the ultimate confidence boost, with noticeably smoother and clearer skin. Contact us today to receive more information on how Vivace can revolutionise your clinic offering.
