Vivace (vee-vá-chay) Means Microneedling for the 21st Century

Original Article By Radiance Medspa Staff | When microneedling came on the scene in the mid-1990s, it seemed like the answer to boosting collagen production in order to improve the skin and fix everything from wrinkles to scars. And this treatment, which consisted of a technician using a hand-held pen or roller to puncture the skin with fine needles, was generally highly effective. By slightly damaging the outer layers of the skin, microneedling caused the body’s own healing mechanisms to kick in, which led to increased collagen production and the smoothing over of wrinkles and blemishes on the surface.

In the hands of an experienced, careful technician, a series of microneedling treatments achieved very positive results. But the nature of the microneedling pens and rollers meant that consistency was difficult, and the skin could be torn or snagged. Puncturing the skin with even fine needles could also be uncomfortable – read painful – and messy.  ..

Myth Busters: Cellulite Edition

Cellulite Reduction AvonOriginal Article By Radiance Medspa Staff. There are two myths surrounding cellulite, that lumpy, bumpy fat that collects in places like the bottom and backs of thighs. The first is that finding the right cream or gel will reduce the appearance of cellulite. Topical methods can provide slight, temporary results at best. More often, they offer no improvement. The second myth is that because topical methods don’t work, cellulite is just something you have to live with unless you are willing to undergo invasive surgery. What most women do not realize is that cellulite is formed by connective bands woven throughout the skin of the thighs and buttocks that pull down the skin to create a dimpled appearance on the outside. The fat is just normal fat, and if the bands can be released, the skin will become smooth.

This is where the new, FDA-cleared cellulite treatment Cellfina comes in to bust both of the cellulite myths. Because the exterior appearance of cellulite is caused by what is going on below the skin, topical solutions will be ineffective because they cannot change the internal structure of the fat and release the connective bands. However, the simple, minimally invasive Cellfina treatment cuts those connective bands and releases the skin, which bounces back to its once smooth appearance. Cellfina consists of a small needle device that is inserted into the affected areas where it breaks the connection that is pulling down the skin. With little to no downtime other than a bit of post-treatment tenderness, Cellfina provides significant and long-lasting results.  ..


Cellfina Announces Unprecedented 5-Year Results for Treatment of Cellulite

Original Article By Carolyn Hsu. | Cellulite, the dimpled skin that forms when fat pushes through connective tissue, happens to almost all women. Studies show that anywhere from 90 to 95 percent of women, regardless of age, body type and skin color, experience it to some degree. For decades, treatment for cellulite have been met with mixed—and mostly, short-term—results. So, in 2015 when Cellfina, a clinically proven, minimally invasive procedure, was FDA-cleared for improving cellulite for up to two years, it proved to be a game-changer. Just a year later, the FDA cleared Cellfina to deliver results that last for up to three years.  ..


The Blunt Truth about Dermal Filler Injections

Original Article By Radiance Medspa Staff.
When it comes to dermal fillers, whether you’re getting a product from Juvéderm, Restylane, or Sculptra, injection is par for the course. To get the product in, the medical practitioner must pierce the skin. While sharp needles are excellent for puncturing, it turns out, they are not as good at distributing product. Usually, administering product through a sharp needle means that multiple injections are required to complete one treatment. Although most injectors continue to use sharp needles to provide dermal fillers, typically leading to some level of post-treatment bruising and swelling, there is a better way to administer injections, and it’s called a cannula.  ..
