Attiva USA


ATTIVA® Subdermal Induced Heat (S.I.H.) Technology known as Attiva RF is a groundbreaking innovation in the field of medical treatment for aging loose skin. Developed after five years of intensive technical and scientific research, this technology is protected by three international patents. It has emerged as the ultimate solution for physicians seeking an efficient and safe alternative to surgical procedures. Advanced Skin & Vein Care Centers is proud to be the first clinic in North America to acquire this revolutionary technology and provide it at our Lexington and Georgetown Kentucky locations  (Attiva USA). 


One of the key advantages of ATTIVA® S.I.H. Technology is its use of capacitive transducers that operate with tensions up to 10 times lower than any other capacitive transducers available on the market. This ensures the highest level of safety for patients undergoing treatment. The technology addresses various concerns associated with aging skin, such as facial lifting, wrinkles, skin tightening, taboo zone lifting, face and body contouring, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and even double chin.


Patients who choose ATTIVA® S.I.H. Technology can expect to experience dramatic aesthetic enhancements in the quality of their skin. Notably, the treatment requires no downtime, leaves no scarring, and provides immediate results. With these advantages, ATTIVA® sets a new benchmark in the medical treatment of aging loose skin. 


Efficient & safe procedure

People today demand efficient and safe procedures from their physician in order to improve their skin quality and body contour. The realization that exogenous treatments are not enough to solve their skin problems, coupled with the fear of surgery, lead many to opt for non-surgical minimally invasive technology. ATTIVA® S.I.H. Technology, achieves long lasting results with a minimal downtime and no excisional scars.

During ATTIVA Radiofrequency procedure a microcannula is used to administer anesthetic via injection to make the procedure more comfortable. Once the skin is anesthetized, a thin electrode emitting radiofrequency is applied slowly and carefully for a specific amount of time, depending on the area being treated. The procedure is closely monitored by a camera, which measures the skin's surface temperature to ensure its safety. Following the treatment, there is no visible change to the skin's appearance, although some individuals may experience mild swelling or bruising. Over the course of 4 to 6 weeks, the lifting effect becomes more noticeable and continues to improve as new collagen is produced. One or more treatments may be required to achieve individual results.



  • Skin laxity: As we age, the skin loses its elasticity, leading to sagging and wrinkles. Attiva Radiofrequency can help to improve skin quality, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

  • Wrinkle reduction: Attiva Radiofrequency can help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, particularly in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.

  • Collagen and elastin production: Collagen is an important protein that gives the skin its elasticity and structure. Attiva Radiofrequency can stimulate collagen production, resulting in thicker, healthier skin.

  • Non-invasive: Attiva Radiofrequency is a non-invasive treatment, meaning that it does not require incisions or injections, and there is no downtime associated with the procedure.

  • Minimal discomfort: Attiva Radiofrequency is generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing almost no discomfort during the procedure.

  • Exceptionally safe: The double real-time temperature control, coupled with the high accuracy of the thermocouple, ensures unparalleled safety during the entire procedure with an unwavering focus on the treated area.



1. Am I a good candidate for Attiva treatment?
Ativa S.I.H. is suitable for those who want to tighten their skin and smooth their wrinkles in one session without wasting time and risks of surgery.

2. Is Ativa’s treatment safe?

It has been proven that S.I.H. technology is highly efficient and secure. Safety is provided by double temperature control made in the machine. This combination with an external thermal control camera allows continuous control of the probe inside the tissues and surface temperature of the skin. In the whole session, the physician controls the parameters and results.

3. How long does it take to see the results?
Most patients will recover immediately after the first session, but the full result will be achieved 2 to 3 months after treatment. The reason is the amount of time the body needs to produce new elastin and collagen fibers.


4- How long does the result take?
The desired result is achieved after 3 to 5 months and remains 18 to 24 months.

5- Is attiva S.I.H. treatment painful?
This method itself is painless because the area is localized. However, there may be mild pain during the treatment of sensitive areas.

6. How long is the treatment and the duration of recovery?
Treatment time varies based on the treatment area, and the recovery time varies from a few hours to a few days depending on the area and the type of local anesthesia the doctor uses.


7. What is the biological effect of Attiva radiofrequency on the skin?

Attiva radio waves are electromagnetic waves that, by passing under the middle layer of the skin, produce and generate a large amount of heat, without damaging its surface. The most important biological effect within tissue is the denaturation of proteins that participate in the formation of collagen fibres. Collagen gives the skin firmness, elasticity, and is responsible for a smooth wrinkle-free surface. Over the years, collagen production declines leading to the formation of wrinkles and sagging.  Attiva radiofrequency causes an instantaneous contraction of loose collagen fibres inside the skin, by induced heat of about 50 degrees, with visible effects of skin tightening and regeneration. The accumulated heat biochemically stimulates the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin, while the old collagen is remodelled and renewed. Cellular metabolism of the entire tissue is stimulated, with the improvement of microcirculation and oxygenation. The effects of the treatment are visible freshness, elasticity and rejuvenation of the skin.


8. Which skin regions can be treated with Attiva radiofrequency?

Attiva endodermal radio-frequency skin lifting can be used to tighten all parts of the skin where signs of aging and sagging started to appear. We use it for:
– tightening and lifting of skin of all regions of the face, especially lower part of the face – marionette or “puppet” lines.
– rejuvenation and lifting of the upper and lower eyelids, under eye bags
– tightening and rejuvenation of the skin of the neck and below the chin
– correction of fine wrinkles of all regions
– tightening of the sagging skin of the abdomen, thighs, upper arms and other regions.

9. How is Attiva radiofrequency applied to scars?

Attiva radiofrequency with induced heat of about 60 degrees remodels the fibrillar fibers in the scar, scar fibers, stimulates microcirculation, resulting in improved appearance and scar reduction. It can be used for the treatment of scars in all skin parts and of different ages.

10. Can Attiva radiofrequency lifting be used for lipolysis?

By applying thermal energy of about 70 degrees, we can achieve the destruction of fat cells localized in the abdomen, hips, chin and other body parts. Thermal energy causes lysis – breaking down of the fat cells, with the release of triglycerides into the intercellular space, while the improvement of circulation enables their elimination through lymphatic pathways.


11. What does Attiva radiofrequency lifting look like?

The procedure is painless, because the anesthetic is given via injection to the site, with a flexible micro cannula. A thin electrode is then applied to the anaesthetized skin, emitting radiofrequency and moving slowly in the skin for a certain period of time and depending on the region.


12. When is the use of Attiva radiofrequency contraindicated?

Contraindications for the use of Attiva treatment are skin infections, wounds, erosions and herpes, acne and pustules, patients with pacemakers, neoplasms and metal implants.
