Dr. Elizabeth Whitaker adds innovative Vivace microneedling procedure via new partnership with Cartessa Aesthetics

“Cartessa Aesthetics offers access to advanced technology unlike any other in this field, and I look forward to what we can accomplish.” -Elizabeth Whitaker, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Once crowned the “Queen of Faces” because of the thousands of facial cosmetic procedures she has performed, Elizabeth Whitaker, M.D., F.A.C.S., of Atlanta Face and Body, is among the first physicians to bring the newest RF Microneedling treatment, the Vivace, to her practice. The Vivace is FDA-cleared for the contouring and tightening of the face, neck, hands and body through a pain-free, non-surgical treatment.

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment that triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin by creating tiny punctures in the top layer of skin. Whereas microneedling rollers and some microneedling pens often lead to tearing, pain and variable patient outcomes, Vivace’s unique design delivers precise and pain-free results at multiple levels of penetration. Furthermore, the combination of microneedling with radio frequency further tightens the skin. Vivace has been shown to improve texture and firmness, acne scars and stretch marks and prepares the skin to best receive post-treatment serums and recovery protocols, like PRP.

“The addition of the Vivace to our practice is exciting,” says Dr. Whitaker. “For my patients, the greatest barriers to trying new treatments are fear of pain and lackluster results. The Vivace eliminates the need to trade effectiveness for comfort and vice-versa – so, not surprising, it has quickly become one of our most popular treatments.”

The addition of the Vivace device to Atlanta Face and Body is a result of Dr. Whitaker’s joining the Medical Advisory Board of Cartessa Aesthetics, LLC. Founded in early 2017, Cartessa is a privately-held distributor and marketer of FDA-approved, aesthetic medical devices. Cartessa aims to deliver a higher level of support to physicians while providing access to best-in-class technology which, previously, may not have been available.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join the Medical Advisory Board of Cartessa,” Dr. Elizabeth Whitaker shares. “Cartessa offers access to advanced technology unlike any other in this field, and I look forward to what we can accomplish.”
