“One of the hardest realities of getting older is looking in the mirror and seeing your face structure change. And although everyone will experience fine lines and wrinkles, we all want to age gracefully. I have specifically selected treatments that address these concerns with no downtime, so you can go to dinner the same night or back to work the next day; it’ll just be our little secret” Sarah Hudson
The 3 C’s of Skin Firming – Condition, Cause, Clinical Solution
Sagging skin is an inevitable part of the skin ageing process. As we age, the skin and underlying connective tissue begin to stretch which can lead to a loss of firmness and other visible changes in the skin.
Over time, cells stop renewing your structural supports such as collagen and elastin, causing a loss of elasticity which can be added to by excessive sun exposure – particularly UVA which speeds up the natural breakdown of your skins important connective tissue. Hormones also play a part thanks to the reduction of estrogen during menopause, with poor diet, stress, alcohol, smoking, and a lack of exercise also contributing factors.
THE CLINICAL SOLUTION
Treatments that stimulate collagen production are key when it comes to firming the skin, most effective when used via heat. Three unique modalities used are RF Needling, Laser Genesis and LED Light Therapy Treatments.

Treatment name: The Vivace Experience
“This is one of my favourite clinical treatments! Not only one that I use personally but one that guarantees comments every time with great flexibility for all clients” SH
The Rolls-Royce of micro-needling technology, Vivace is the perfect answer for contouring and tightening face, neck, hands and body. This non-surgical treatment stimulates the natural production of collagen, and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. With immediate results, there is little to no down-time, and the pain is virtually next to nothing.
Vivace is revolutionary in its combining of radio frequency, which gently heats the tissue to stimulate collagen production, and micro needling, which induces a wound healing response to encourage the skin to make collagen. In addition, a LED lamp also heals the skin as the treatment is performed so there is no pinpoint bleeding or down time.
What is Micro Needling?
Through the skin’s normal ageing process, production and levels of growth factors decrease. Micro needling delivers thousands of micro-punctures per second into the skin, triggering its natural wound-healing process. This results in the production of growth factors and new collagen, building skin volume.
What is Radio Frequency (RF)?
Radio frequency uses waves of energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. This technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.
What is LED?
LED offers an incredible array of treatment options, from helping to build new collagen and elastin, reducing inflammation and promoting circulation, and even helping to destroy acne-causing bacteria.
“There is so much pressure on us to look good for our age and I know many clients are apprehensive about injectables and surgery, so being able to offer such incredible skin firming treatments is a fantastic natural alternative” SH
Why is the Vivace different to other Needling devices – 5 key factors
Microneedles – vary: either insulated and non-insulated. Different collagen is stimulated at different depths during each treatment giving a more effective treatment. Depth control –deeper penetration where needed on the cheeks, lighter depth on delicate skin near the eyes without causing bruising or blood spots.
The quality of the hydraulics on the hand device allows for precise penetration of the needles without tearing or scratching the skin: a problem with other needle devices. Robotic motor – controls speed ensures the heat of the RF (Radio Frequency) is precisely delivered. RF(Radio Frequency) – energy heats tissue to stimulates dermal collagen production and collagen contraction (skin tightening) LED Light– heals the skin as you work – so there is no/minimal downtime
Home Maintenance for Collagen Stimulation
Stimulate collagen production with
Vitamin C Complex
Nightly application of topical Vitamin C Complex encourages cell turnover as well as removing damaged cells that make the skin looked aged.
RENEW CELLS WITH VITAMIN A COMPLEX
Nightly application of topical Vitamin A Complex encourages cell turnover as well as removing damaged cells that make the skin looked aged.
Peptides help to refine fine lines around the eyes, anti-oxidants protect the eye area, potent ingredients improve the hydration levels and appearance of the delicate skin around the eyes.
“Fibroblasts are one of the key components in stimulating our collagen production. Topical application of Vitamin C every day is needed to keep our Fibroblasts healthy and working effectively – plus Vitamin C has the added benefits of anti-oxidants which prevent skin damage.” SH
