WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?

With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with an occasional, light sparking feeling.

DOES IT HURT?

Our Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream, the best numbing cream available, is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience throughout the treatment. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free. The Vivace was designed with patient comfort in mind.

HOW DO I DETERMINE THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR ME?

It’s important to work with a trusted doctor who uses FDA-cleared devices to give you confidence in its safety and reliability. Seek a patient experience that has been designed to be the most comfortable experience with the greatest results. Be clear that the device used is only part of the process, the right serums and recovery system will enhance your results.

Here are additional questions clients like you have asked.

Radio frequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results.

Many physicians find three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience patients are looking for. Single treatment protocols are available depending on experience desired.

The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.

Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the Vivace treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Soothe Weekly Mask and Soothe Recovery System. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and you may even wait until the next morning.

Start with the right device, with the right treatment serums with the right recovery system. Follow the recommended recovery protocols once you get home, which include Soothe Weekly Mask, and the Soothe Recovery System that includes a soothing spray, cleanser and balm. Couple this with abstinence from the sun and three to five days off from working out, and you are well on your way to maximizing The Vivace Experience™ for yourself. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.

Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.

Everyone is different, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next six months as results improve over time.

Physicians may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. After that time period, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.

March 18,2020

To Our Patients,

The Surgeon General, the CDC, the American College of Surgeons, and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery have all recommended delaying or postponing elective surgery and medically non essential patient visits during the Covid 19 pandemic as we anticipate an unprecedented strain on our Healthcare System. The Novant Healthcare System has cancelled/rescheduled all elective operations beginning 3/18/2020. They have not given a date when they anticipate opening their operating rooms for elective surgery and we will be monitoring that closely. Also, the CDC and Federal Government have recommended limiting social interactions to try to slow the spread of disease. For that reason Ballantyne Plastic Surgery will be operating on an extremely limited basis for the next two weeks or longer and only be seeing patients for medically necessary reasons. This is defined as patients whose health would be negatively affected if they are not seen. This will apply mainly to patients in the early post operative period. As of March 18, 2020 the following applies to Ballantyne Plastic Surgery:

  1.  All elective surgery is being cancelled and will later be rescheduled when the  operating rooms are open for elective procedures. Every effort will be made to accommodate your scheduling desires.
  2.  All medically non-essential patient visits will be rescheduled for a minimum of 2 weeks or however long the CDC and other governing agencies deem essential to limit the spread of Covid 19. This includes:
          a. All new patient consults
          b. All dermal filler and neuromodulator (botox) patients
          c. All aesthetic services (laser, skin pen, peels, etc.)
          d. All long term post surgical follow up patients unless there is a problem requiring immediate intervention
  3. Dr Liszka will determine who will be seen during this time period and you will be notified as to your appointment date. You also may call the office to discuss whether you need to be seen during this time

All of us at Ballantyne Plastic Surgery are very sorry to have to implement the above protocol for our practice and the impact it makes on our patient’s schedule and lives. This is an unprecedented medical problem and requires extreme measures. We believe this is necessary and in the best interest of our patients, staff, community, and country.

Sincerely,

Thomas G. Liszka, M.D.
