For men and women looking to tighten and rejuvenate the skin The Vivace Experience™ provides superior patient comfort, rapid healing, and incredible outcomes.

With The Vivace™, each treatment plan can be highly customized by Dr. Petti to suit the unique skin type, needs, and goals of the patient to bring about significant improvements and a more youthful glow.
Dr. Petti welcomes you to learn more about The Vivace Experience™ and other non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments she offers by scheduling a consultation. After a thorough evaluation of your skin and a discussion of your goals, you and Dr. Petti can explore which treatment options are best-suited for improving your skin.
What Should I Expect After The Vivace Experience™?
Immediately after treatment your skin may take on a mildly flushed appearance. For about four to six hours the microchannels in your skin will be most receptive to the specific serums and recovery products you are given, and you are instructed to follow the post-treatment protocols Dr. Petti provides. It is recommended that you avoid the sun and exercise, and wait about six hours before applying any makeup. By evening, many patients are ready to go about their usual activities. You may decide to schedule additional treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart to further enhance the quality of your final results. Dr. Petti can recommend the most effective plan for your skin type, cosmetic concerns, and goals.
While it will take time to develop new collagen, the majority of patients notice some immediate improvements in skin quality and texture. Due to the unique nature of each patient’s treatment and skin type, results typically vary. As collagen fibers form in the skin over the next three months, you should notice tightening and firming of the skin. Repeated treatment sessions can lead to greater improvement in the quality of results in most cases. Often, patients choose to combine additional cosmetic treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, or KYBELLA® injections, to achieve more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face and neck. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be administered on the same day as treatment, while dermal fillers and KYBELLA® can be administered two weeks before or after treatment.
