Tri-Modality Treatment using
IPL, Diamondpolar RF, Viva
The powerhouse of all treatments. A tri-modality treatment combining IPL, Radiofrequency and nanofractional radiofrequency to amplify results and target pigment, wrinkles, texture, tone, pores and laxity.
The treatments start off with an IPL which can feel a little snappy. We wait 10 minutes then proceed with the Diamondpolar Radiofrequency; this has been compared to a hot stone massage. We wait another 10 minutes then apply a numbing cream prior to the Viva treatment. Then we proceed with a Viva treatment, the numbing takes the edge off and it is a well tolerated treatment. Once that is complete, we recommend our patients do not touch their skin or use any products (even water) for 24 hours. This treatment is safe for skin types I-IV and treatment has minimal social downtime.

No, the treatment uses a lot of heat which can make it unsafe for a darker skin type. This treatment is safe for skin types I – IV. We can do a combination of Viva and Diamondpolar treatments for a darker skin type.
Is there any downtime?
Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
It is very important to avoid heat, sweat and water for 24 hours post treatment. You will have a post procedure kit containing a gentle cleanser, recovery balm and a sunscreen. Please only use these products for the following 5 – 7 days after your chemical peel treatment. It is important to avoid active products such as retinol and AHA’s and BHA’s for 2 weeks after your peel.
Patients should not be treated if they have a pacemaker or defibrillator, or any other electrical implant in the body, if they are pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to become pregnant.
Patients should wait to do treatment if they have had any surgeries in the area within 3-6 months, cosmetic injections within the last 2 weeks or recent chemical peels or resurfacing treatments.
