Venus Viva™ is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment, that uses long-term collagen stimulation and regeneration to improve overall skin tone and texture.
It helps to reduce or remove many of the signs of skin damage and textural irregularities, including:
- scars and stretch marks
- acne scarring
- fines lines and deep wrinkles
- enlarged pores
- pigmentation lesions.
Venus Viva also tightens lax skin in the face and neck, and elevates and resurfaces the delicate skin around the eyes.
It is suitable for all skin types, and has little downtime and few side effects.
How does Venus Viva skin resurfacing work?
Venus Viva combines NanoFractional™ Radio Frequency (RF) and SmartScan™ technology, to deliver heat energy deep into the dermis.
Tiny pins deliver the heat safely through the skin’s surface, creating tiny micro-dermal wounds.
Venus Viva also targets fine lines and wrinkles using the non-invasive DiamondPolar™ applicator.
This uses multi-polar RF and pulsed electromagnetic fields to produce uniform heat on the skin.
The body’s natural healing response to the wound is to initiate collagen remodelling and tissue regeneration, repairing visible irregularities on the surface of the skin.
These two technologies working together result in a dramatic improvement to the skin, covering a greater surface area and treating multiple issues in the same session.
How long does the treatment take?
A single treatment session normally lasts no longer than 30 minutes, with some treatments taking less than 15 minutes.
How many treatments will I need?
You should see that your skin is smoother, clearer and younger looking after just one treatment.
The ideal number of treatment sessions varies, but most patients see full results after a series of 3 or 4 treatments.
To maintain the results, we recommend further treatment sessions every 4 to 6 weeks.
Is the treatment painful?
Venus Viva skin resurfacing is non-invasive and virtually pain-free.
The wounds created are so small, it’s much more comfortable than other ablative procedures that use lasers or chemical peels.
And with Venus Viva’s selectional dermal heating process, it means you won’t need a topical anaesthetic and there is little or no downtime.
Are there any side effects?
Venus Viva skin resurfacing is safe and effective for all skin tones.
Immediately after the treatment, you will experience mild redness in the treated area, but this will subside fairly quickly and you can continue your daily activities straight away.
You can resume wearing makeup 24 hours after the treatment.
