What is Venus Viva skin resurfacing?

Venus Viva skin resurfacing is a type of skin resurfacing device that uses radiofrequency technology. It is intended to improve the texture, tone and quality of the skin. This is an ideal treatment because instead of burning the skin like other lasers, it deeply heats it, decreasing healing time. Venus Viva is FDA-approved and fully customizable, so it is safe for all skin types.

How does Venus Viva skin resurfacing work?

Venus Viva works as an advanced radiofrequency microneedling procedure, essentially creating tiny wounds on the skin that the body repairs. Due to the incredibly small wounds, this treatment is more comfortable than traditional lasers and alternatives. It also causes an increase in collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.

How is the Venus Viva skin resurfacing performed?

The Venus Viva procedure is administered using a handheld device that emits radiofrequency energy. The device is used to heat the skin in the targeted areas, yielding effective results – often with less treatment sessions than other devices. The treatment is usually completed in less than 30 minutes.

Is Venus Viva skin resurfacing painful?

Some patients experience slight discomfort during their treatment, but the treatment is not painful. You may feel heat that resembles a sunburn. If you are concerned about any associated pain, a topical numbing cream can be applied upon request.

When will I see results?

Results from Venus Viva rely solely on how quickly the skin heals after treatment. Since many of the benefits appear after recovery, results may not be visible for a few weeks. However, results are designed to improve during the months following treatment, so you can expect to see more significant results over time. Our staff will provide you with clear instructions to follow after your procedure, as the first 24 hours after treatment are essential to recovery.

Can Venus Viva skin resurfacing be combined with other treatments?

Venus Viva is a carefully designed procedure that can be safely combined with other treatments to maximize results. During your initial consultation, your board-certified dermatologist can recommend additional laser treatments or procedures that can be combined with Venus Viva to give you the best results.
