Vivace Microneedling

The Vivace microneedling RF device is one of the newest and most exciting FDA-approved microneedling treatment options for those looking to improve their skin tone and texture without pain or downtime. If your complexion is marred by sun damage, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, scars or other skin blemishes, a series of Vivace treatments can make a noticeable improvement in your overall appearance and self-confidence.

Angell Medical Spa is proud to offer the latest in microneedling treatments with Vivace. If you are interested in improving the quality of your skin and letting your inner beauty shine through, Dr. Angell can work with you to put together a Vivace treatment plan that will leave your skin refreshed and radiant.

How It Works

Vivace uses radiofrequency technology to deliver heat energy to the skin while simultaneously creating microchannels beneath the epidermis. The skin is gently heated to stimulate collagen and elastin production, improving skin laxity. Vivace’s unique dual action provides a powerful skin-tightening and blemish-reducing combination for glowing skin. Vivace microneedling treatments can be used to:

  • Shrink pore size
  • Reduce secretion of natural skin oils
  • Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smooth and diminish scars
  • Improve skin laxity
  • Reduce active acne
  • Balance rough and uneven skin texture

The microneedling action stimulates your body’s natural wound response without causing real harm to the skin, allowing you to benefit from increased nutrient production without unwanted side effects. Vivace takes advantage of systems in your body that are already put in place and uses them to your advantage. Nothing synthetic or artificial is used during the treatment.

The Vivace Experience

Vivace treatments are quick and relatively painless. Topical anesthesia is used to make sure you feel absolutely comfortable during your treatment session. For optimal results, three treatments spaced three to four weeks apart work best. Dr. Angell will meet with you during a one-on-one consultation to evaluate your skincare goals and determine a personalized anti-aging plan that is right for you.

Unlike other treatments, the targeted depth of Vivace treatments can be adjusted for treating a wide array of skin types and tones. The face, neck and other areas of the body can all benefit from Vivace treatments. Treatments are minimally-invasive, safe and effective.

The microscopic channels created in the dermis remain open for several hours post-treatment, allowing advanced skin serums and products to penetrate deep into the skin, increasing their effectivity. At Angell Medical Spa, we offer SkinCeuticals and Envy Medical skin products to supplement your Vivace treatments for the highest quality skin care.

Dr. Angell and Jason Peugh, PA-C, are proud to be at the forefront of cosmetic medical practices to offer Vivace treatments to their patients. If a minimally-invasive and painless treatment to tighten and rejuvenate your skin interests you, call us today at 916-905-2372 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Angell.

Pucker Up for Valentine’s Day

Pucker Up for Valentine’s Day

Pucker Up for Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, treat yourself or a loved one to Juvéderm® lip treatments. Juvéderm® is a family of FDA-approved injectable fillers that can leave patients satisfied for up to one year. If your lips are thin, asymmetrical or could just use a little love, then be sure to schedule an appointment this month to come into Angell Medical Spa for a Juvéderm® treatment.

Get Plump, Kissable Lips with Juvéderm®

Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Volbella XC are two Juvéderm® products specially designed to add volume and shape to the lips. Juvéderm® products are made with a smooth formulation that adds fullness for surgery-free lip augmentation. Juvéderm® is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance found in the body that keeps skin hydrated, and lidocaine, a numbing agent that makes injections more comfortable.

Appointments take about 30 minutes and are performed in the comfort of our Sacramento office. Using a series of precise injections, Dr. Angell and Jason Peugh, PA-C, will add volume to your lips according to your preferences and beauty goals discussed during an initial consultation.

Juvéderm® Volbella XC can be used to soften the appearance of vertical lips lines, in addition to volumizing lips. If you are bothered by perioral wrinkles above your lips, commonly referred to as “smoker’s lines,” let us know and we will discuss a comprehensive treatment plan for all of your concerns. Juvéderm® products can be used to treat a wide range of facial wrinkles and imperfections, so if you are satisfied with your lip treatments, ask us what else Juvéderm® can do for you.

Easy Recovery, Fast Results

After your quick appointment, results develop quickly. You will notice an immediate difference in the size and shape of your lips, although there may also be some temporary bruising, swelling or numbness. These side effects are mild and typically last three days to one week. We recommend scheduling your Juvéderm® treatments on a Thursday or Friday to allow time for side effects to diminish over the weekend.

The treatment itself is relatively painless, although you may experience some mild discomfort. The lidocaine present in Juvéderm’s® unique formulation numbs the lips during the injection, but topical anesthesia or numbing creams can also be provided upon request for added comfort.

Results from Juvéderm® treatments can last up to one year, making it one of the longest-lasting injectable fillers on the market. Results will gradually fade with time, so be sure to come back in for an annual maintenance appointment to maintain your results. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your new lips, you can rest easy knowing that the results are temporary and your regular lip shape will return with time.
