Practice's answers

Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Would Micro Botox or Vivace help my crepey neck skin?
Vivace for crepey neck skin
Apr 27, 2021
For a non-invasive option for neck tightening and crepey skin, Vivace is a device that I use extensively in my practice for this purpose. The heat from the radio frequency and the epidermal damage from the microneedling in the Vivace device stimulate collagen production to produce firmer, tighter and younger- looking skin. The skin's texture and tone is improved as well. Keep in mind that a series of treatments is required to see best results typically we recommend a series of 3-5 treatments...
Is IPL a good option to treat melasma on Asian skin?
Options for melasma
Aug 5, 2020
IPL is not an option I would recommend for melasma, particularly given your skin type as it can actually cause a worsening of melasma. Using hydroquinone is a good first step, but keep in mind that topical products can take some time to work, so give those products at least 3-4 months before you start seeing results. If you are looking for a device treatment to supplement your home-use products, treatments with the PicoSure laser are effective for patients with melasma. This laser has been...
Should I continue Picosure sessions or get other treatment? 
PicoSure for acne scars
Jun 19, 2020
Typically when treating acne scars with the PicoSure laser, we usually recommend 3-5 treatments. So you likely did not have enough treatments to achieve an ideal result. There are other modalities that also work very well for acne scarring. In our practice, we utilize the Vivace RF Microneedling device and often combine it with the PicoSure to tackle difficult to treat acne scars. So you could certainly consider continuing with more PicoSure treatments or consider RF microneedling instead o...
What recommendations other than Botox/Dysport can you recommend to eliminate these eye wrinkles a
Non-toxin options for periocular improvement
Jan 13, 2020
Other than toxins such as Botox and Dysport, TempSure Envi can be a nice tool for addressing the periocular area. Another option you may want to consider is RF Microneedling with a device such as the Vivace. TempSure Envi is radio frequency only device (RF), while Vivace combines radio frequency (RF) with microneedling for rejuvenation. We've seen excellent results at our clinic, particularly around the eye area, utilizing the Vivace. Filler would absolutely not be a treatment I would reco...
Which Microneedling/ RF device gives the best results Vivace or Cutera Secret? How many treatment
Vivace vs Secret
Sep 25, 2019
Given the skin concerns you noted in your question, RF microneedling sounds like it would be a good option for you to pursue. Before I brought RF microneedling into my practice, I evaluated both the Secret and the Vivace, ultimately deciding on the Vivace for my practice. We have seen excellent results with the Vivace in my practice, however both the Secret and the Vivace are good devices and you will receive a good treatment from either device in the right hands. Given that these devices ar...
