Vivace Microneedling with Radiofrequency for Skin Rejuvenation

With the recent U. S. Food and Drug Administ­ration (FDA) approval of Vivace micro-needling with radio frequency device, consumers are given more suitable options for treating wrinkles, fine lines, texture, scars and more. Vivace micro-needling with the radio-frequency procedure is noninvasive and can be used to treat any area of the body.

Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, a double board-certified ENT and Facial Plastic and Reconstr­uctive said, “Vivace combines targeted micro-needling with radio-frequency (electrical) energy to help stimulate and tighten the skin even in the deepest layers. This means those problem areas won’t be a problem anymore once treatment is complete. Treatment is typically 3 – 6 one-hour sessions given once per week.

How does the procedure work?

The Vivace micro-needling procedure is performed using a handpiece placed on the skin’s surface of the treatment area. The handpiece consists of a multiple needle head that, when accurately applied within a specified depth, activates the MFR energy. Each time one of the microneedles breaks the skin, a tiny passage is created that prompts the body to produce new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin’s uppermost layer in addition to creating new capillaries.

The benefits of Vivace micro-needling with radio-frequency include:

  • Smaller pore size
  • Reduced secretion of skin oils (seborrhea)
  • Minimized appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved delivery and absorption of medical-grade skin care products
  • Reduced occurrence of acne

Thanks to the FDA approval of the Vivace micro-needling device, you can seek treatment confidently knowing the procedure will be safe on your skin whether it’s your face or body.  Contact us today for more information, or visit our blog.

Long-Lasting Facial Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer

As we age, volume loss in the face is common. This could mean volume loss in the cheeks, and added wrinkles around your eyes, nose, forehead, etc. Many look to fillers or other injectables to smooth age-related facial wrinkles, however, these provide a temporary solution rather than long lasting results. Is there an option on the market today that doesn’t require repetitive, expensive follow-up visits?

Today, facial fat transfer in Los Angeles is becoming more and more popular and can be used to restore volume and provide a smoother, natural facial improvement.

What is a fat transfer and how does it work?

A fat transfer harvests fat from one area of the body and transfers the fat to an area in the face to add volume. Dr. Alex Martin will first take fat from your flanks, thighs, abdomen, etc., using the liposuction technique. That fat is then purified and filtered to remove any impurities. The useable fat is then inserted into the target area for a smoother, more even appearance.

Why is a fat transfer the best option?

As mentioned, many options on the market today are short-term solutions to rejuvenating your face. A fat transfer can smooth laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, restore volume in cheeks, and minimize forehead wrinkles for a more natural approach. This method also provides longer lasting results and is less invasive than other facial procedures.

If you are located in Hollywood, California, schedule your consultation with MetroMD today to see if a fat transfer can help you achieve a more youthful appearance!

Sun Damage and Your Skin

As you may already know, excessive sun exposure can have some major effects on your skin. This includes wrinkles, sun spots, premature aging, and more. So if you’ve already spent years and years in the sun before you were aware of the harmful damage it could do, how do you fix the lines and wrinkles or sun spots? Let’s take a few steps back to see where it all began.

How does sunlight damage your skin?

UV rays can penetrate deep into the skin to damage the dermis. The dermis is made up of the stretchy tissues, therefore, it damages the elasticity which leads to aging skin and unwanted wrinkles. As for the top layers, the rays cause burning which can increase your chances of skin cancer. The fairer your skin, the less melanin you have to protect against these harmful rays. Whether or not you’re seeing the physical burning of sun damage, your skin is still at risk! So just because you didn’t get burned, doesn’t mean that you underlying skin isn’t being targeted.

What are the long-term effects of sun damage?

As we said, sun damage is clearly visible when you have a sunburn. The worst of it comes later in life after continuous exposure which leads to premature aging with wrinkles, brown spots, wart-like growths, and possibly skin cancer.

How can I protect my skin?

  • Wear hats to cover your face and neck
  • Wear sunscreen every day, even if you aren’t headed to the beach!
  • Bring a canopy for shade when you’re outside— at the park, on the beach, etc.

Can I reverse the effects of sun damage?

If you are at a stage where UV rays have caused wrinkling, sun spots, and other visible damage, there is a way to improve the look of your skin. Doctors today are looking to C02 Fractional Laser Resurfacing to rejuvenate the skin from sun damage and premature aging.

What is C02 Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

This non-surgical skin treatment uses pulsed, fractionated light energy to target areas deep within the skin to initiate the production of new collagen and elastin. This resurfacing technique will help reduce age spots, improve uneven coloration and texture, laxity, and more. After the treatment, your skin will tighten and smooth wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of spots caused by sun damage. As your skin continues to repair itself over time after the treatments, your results will continue to improve.

To reverse the effects of sun damage, C02 Fractional Laser Resurfacing may be the perfect solution for you. Contact MetroMD in Los Angeles, California to schedule your consultation and get a customized skin renewal treatment to fit your needs!
