Vivace

Lift, tighten and tone your skin with the cutting edge Vivace Skin Tightening Device by Cynosure. With age, our skin loses elasticity and tightness, causing it to sag and stretch. Vivace Skin tightening of the face, neck, hands and decolletage is one of the most effective anti aging treatments available.

Best Skin Tightening Treatment Sydney

The name Skin tightening is like a holiday. You can travel to many different places, but they aren’t all the same. Many Skin Tightening treatments do very little to restore your natural Collagen and Elasticity. The principle of effective skin tightening is to heat the deeper layer of the skin (The Dermis), as this is where the strength structures are located. Vivace is very effective at skin tightening. It uses tiny gold plated needles to penetrate into the dermis, and then emits radiofrequency energy between the needle tips, heating the the deeper skin layer, causing it to tighten and produce Collagen. Most other treatments attempt to heat through the outer layer of the skin. This means the Dermis won’t be heated to the same temperature, and increasing the risk of burning the outer layer of skin. Results from Vivace Skin tightening tend to improve over time, as the body creates and remodels the Collagen over 2-3 months.

How does skin tightening work?

The heating of the Dermis effectively reverses what is changing with age. It restores lost Collagen, and tightens what has stretched, giving you fresh and tight skin, with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Dr Aaron recommends skin tightening for all his patients, as its benefits cannot be overstated. It works great with other treatments in combination such as chemical peels, and Anti Wrinkle injections, meaning you can have smooth, tight skin, with a great complexion and even tone all year round.

Treatment Areas

Face

Stretching of the skin on the face occurs with age. The skin then sags, and wrinkles and folds develop as the muscles try and support the skin. Unfortunately, many people try to solve the problem using only Anti Wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers, and his frequently leads to poor results (AKA looking ‘botched’). Dr Aaron considers Skin Tightening of the face to be vital in any comprehensive and well thought out treatment plan. With tight skin and good amounts of collagen, you can look your natural best, without relying on high volumes of Dermal Fillers or Anti Wrinkle injections.

Neck

The ageing neck is one of the most complicated areas to treat correctly in Cosmetic Medicine. There are many changes occurring simultaneously that lead to sagging, heaviness, bands, and a loss of the youthful neck contour. Collagen loss and weakening of the skin strength are common, and significantly under treated. Skin tightening can help provide a strong foundation with which to rejuvenate the neck using treatments such as Anti Wrinkle injections, Fat Dissolving and a non surgical neck lift with a Silhouette Soft Thread Lift.

Decolletage

Sun damage to the décolletage causes fine lines and wrinkles through collagen loss. By tightening the skin with Vivace, Dr Aaron can rejuvenate this common sign of ageing with minimal discomfort, and no downtime.

Hands

Thinning of the skin on the hands is very common and under treated, and therefore is a giveaway for someone’s true age. Treatment begins with skin tightening to restore lost skin quality and collagen, and can be combined with Dermal Fillers or Collagen Stimulating injections to plump and restore lost volume.

Scars

Skin injury often leads to scarring. Scars can be unsightly, especially when affecting the face. By using Skin Tightening and other treatment modalities, the appearance of scars can be improved.
