Scarring and recovery (downtime, bruising, wound healing) is one of the biggest concerns with any plastic surgery procedure. Artiste Plastic Surgery, home to highly respected plastic surgeon Dr Jack Zoumaras, have brand new technology that when used before any plastic surgery procedure can help to minimise scarring and bruising, and get your skin in it’s best state possible to recover.

Vivace – brand new technology

Using a combination of radio frequency and micro-needling, the Vivace treatment is taking these treatments to a new level. “This technique is more advanced and effective than existing Needling techniques. The reasons for this is that the needling is fractionated, deeper and combined with radio frequency. The wonderful thing about the Vivace is that depth and RF Time can be adjusted on different areas of the face also taking into consideration the patient’s concern whether it’s for lifting & tightening where an insulated needle is used, or for acne pore reduction and acne scarring where non insulated needles are used. Vivace gives me the ability to customize each treatment to a patients need and concerns ensuring they achieve the optimal results,” says Artiste Practice Nurse Tania De Freitas.

The Vivace treatment can be done in your lunch time with very little downtime (Tania says you might have a blushed face) and you can return to work straight afterwards.

So, how does it prepare your skin for surgery?

Vivace heats your skin cells with the radio frequency, at the same time as they are gently needled, causing a controlled trauma to the cells which ultimately results in new collagen being formed. Whilst you will see an instant result of glowing, shiny skin, over the following days and weeks your skin will continue to improve and your skin tone and facial wrinkles will improve markedly. It triggers an increased blood supply and growth factors to your skin cells helping to fasttrack healing from any plastic surgery procedure or other more invasive non-surgical procedure you might be having.

So, not only does it help prepare your skin for an upcoming procedure to give you the best possible chance for your skin to heal and minimise scarring, Artiste tell us there are heaps of other benefits such as helping with:

  • Tired looking skin
  • Stretch Marks
  • Sagging skin
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Pigmentation
  • Blemishes
  • Scars from acne
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Enlarged pores

The treatment is said to be relaxing, with minimal discomfort. Artiste tell us they apply a local anesthetic numbing cream to ensure their client’s comfort. They also apply a soothing Mask at the end of the treatment to speed up the healing process.

Post Treatment Experience

Bonnie from @ozbeautyexpert loved her Vivace treatment

For four to six hours the skin’s channels remain open which is the ideal time to apply serums or topical healing agents used directly post treatment, including PRP. The treatment allows patients to return to normal activities directly after treatment with no down time

@Ozbeautyexpert Bonnie G experienced the Vivace and says a week after her treatment on her decolletage the skin felt thicker and smoother. Tania says her patients have similar rave reviews and it is fast becoming one of their most popular non-surgical treatments, as well as extremely popular pre and post surgery.
