This type of treatment is much less painful and uncomfortable than laser treatments. Originally, skin resurfacing required the use of traditional CO2 lasers pulsed into the skin to provide desired effects. The main problem with this is that it can cause discomfort to some patients, and it’s only available on lighter (white) skin tones.
Little to No Downtime
Most Venus Viva™ treatments require you to maintain bare skin for 24 hours (meaning no makeup, harsh skin care products, etc.) to ensure the healing process begins promptly. Other than that, there is no downtime and you can return to daily activities as normal.
Effective for All Skin Types and Colors
Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing is an excellent improvement compared to laser resurfacing. It’s safe and effective for all skin types, ethnicities, and darker skin tones; whereas laser is only available for lighter skin tones.
Quick, Safe Treatment Option
Treatment sessions usually last up to 30 minutes. Most patients report a pain-free process and leave feeling cleansed, rejuvenated, and notice a plumper complexion.
Individualized Treatment Plans
With SmartScan technology, each treatment is aimed to best benefit the individual. Whether you have deep acne scars from the former use of harsh medications like Accutane, or simply want to tighten some trouble aging areas with stretch marks, the Venus Viva™ can be geared specifically to your skin needs.
What Happens During a Treatment?
The first part of a Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatment is a thorough skin assessment. Your provider will talk to you about your main skin concerns and needs in order to understand your desired result of this treatment. From there, your treatment provider will explain your individual plan and the likely outcome.
Because this skin resurfacing treatment involves small pins that penetrate the skin, you’ll first be numbed with a topical anesthetic so you remain comfortable during the entire process. Then they use the handheld tool to apply the treatment. You may feel some warmth, mild scratchy sensation, or pressure.
At first, your skin may have some mild swelling visible on the surface or some redness. This is the body’s natural reaction to the process of healing the micro-damage. It means your skin is effectively responding to the treatment. Within the next few days, most of the redness will settle. You can go about your normal day immediately. Just be sure to avoid all skin products on the treated area for the first 24 hours.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Other than the initial swelling and redness, the side effects are so small the treatment often won’t come with any adverse reactions. Some people who might be extra sensitive may experience a little longer duration of redness or tenderness, but overall the Venus Viva™ process is safe for all skin types.
