We Select Treatments that Optimize Results


Starting in our 20s, our skin loses collagen at a rate of 1% per year. This means that by the time we are middle-aged, our skin has lost almost half of the essential elements that keep it firm and elastic. Lasers and other skin tightening devices can help stimulate collagen production to keep skin looking young.

Choosing the right treatment, however, is essential. The appropriate treatment will depend on the area you are targeting and the degree of skin laxity. Cartessa Aesthetics’ portfolio of products deliver excellent results for all skin types and conditions and are designed to provide the patient with optimal comfort and recovery.


It is my opinion that over the last few years the aesthetic device market stopped being about what is best for doctors and their patients and started to be more about the manufacturer. My ambition is that Cartessa will change that.

Vivace RF Microneedling

Vivace RF Microneedling is an innovative approach to skin tightening. This machine offers a non-surgical treatment for contouring and tightening the skin of the face, neck, hands, and body. It works by promoting the natural production of collagen that continues over the long term. Patients see immediate results and continual improvement after as few as just one office visit.

Like other microneedling treatments, the Vivace RF uses sterile microneedles to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin. This stimulates the skin to start collagen production.

Microneedling rollers and some microneedling pens often lead to tearing, pain, and mixed outcomes. Vivace RF Microneedling is different. This new technology is designed to deliver more precise, deeper, and pain-free results. As a bonus, the Vivace RF also prepares the skin to absorb post-treatment topicals like PRP, which shortens healing time and provides additional skincare benefits.

Unlike traditional microneedling devices, the addition of radio frequency makes the Vivace a highly effective skin tightening machine. Microneedle electrodes deliver bi-polar energy deep into dermis without damaging the epidermis. The radiofrequency thermal energy creates fractional electrocoagulation in the dermis. This facilitates a natural wound healing process that promotes the remodeling of collagen, elastin and wound contraction.

With additional skin tightening and lifting benefits, Vivace RF offers the next generation in skin tightening solutions, providing results that are not possible with traditional rollers and pens.
