Skin Resurfacing with Venus Viva

Nanofractional radio-frequency with  the Venus Viva is a favorite treatment of our patients due to the minimal downtime and amazing results. In the past, much more aggressive laser treatments with long downtimes and intense side effects were needed to achieve the same results we get with this amazing technology. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) can be used during Viva treatments for even more collagen stimulation. It is safe for all skin types and can be performed year round. A series of three treatments 4-8 weeks apart is recommended.

Skin concerns treated include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Scarring (face and body)
  • Acne scarring
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven texture
  • Sun damage
  • Sagging skin
  • Stretch marks
  • C-section scars

What to expect:

Topical numbing cream is applied. Once that takes effect, your skin will be cleaned and test spots will be performed evaluated to ensure you will receive the most effective and safe treatment possible. Aftercare products will be provided. Immediately after the treatment your skin will be red, possibly swollen, and feel like you have sunburn. Sun should be avoided for the next several days. Within 24-48 hours the redness subsides, any tiny faint pinpoint scabs are visible on the skin. In the next 2 weeks you will notice a glow, reduction in lines and overall brighter looking skin. The collagen production continues for the next 8-12 weeks. Appointment time is 90 minutes. Aftercare products are included.

If PRP is being used, your appointment will start with a simple blood draw. While you are numbing, the PRP will be processed to be used for your micro-needling treatment. We always recommend making sure you are well hydrated before any blood draw.
