Maintaining the Results of a Facelift with Vivace Microneedling


A facelift is a fantastic way to revive the youthfulness of the face. This procedure improves signs of aging in the face and neck by lifting sagging skin, removing excess skin, tightening a double chin, and correcting folds in the face. A facelift’s longevity depends on many factors including a patient's age, skin type, surgeon’s skill, and type of facelift. A full facelift typically lasts around 5-10 years and a mini facelift lasts between two and five years.

In addition to eating healthy, staying out of the sun, and staying hydrated, additional, less invasive procedures can help your face maintain the results of a facelift. Vivace Microneedling is a great way to stay youthful and avoid another facelift procedure for years to come. As fine lines and wrinkles creep back after your facelift, a less expensive and less invasive procedure like Vivace Microneedling can help you touch up your face and prolong results.

A Revolutionary Way to Contour and Tighten The Face

This new, FDA-approved microneedling system is a revolutionary way to contour and tighten the face. By using radio frequency that heats the area underneath the skin and producing microscopic “wounds,” Vivace encourages the body to create new collagen, a naturally occurring skin tightening substance. Vivace Microneedling combines radio frequency energy through microneedles and delivers rejuvenation into the skin through each needle. This procedure tightens the skin while stimulating new growth.

Vivace Microneedling is Minimally Invasive and Virtually Painless

Vivace Microneedling requires very little downtime and can be performed with a topical anesthetic in under and hour at Dr. Kevin Sadati’s office. It is minimally invasive and virtually painless. It is a great way to maintain results after a facelift because it does not require additional surgery. Many patients combine a facelift and microneedling to stay youthful and rejuvenated. In addition, many patients opt for a microneedling procedure for other areas of the body, such as the neck, to match the results of their facelift.

Vivace Microneedling improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, scars, tone and texture, and overall skin rejuvenation. By treating the skin to Vivace Microneedling, you are prolonging the lifespan of your facelift.
