Venus Viva Skin Resurfacing

Rejuvenating and Skin Tightening Facials

on December 20, 2019

What is Skin Resurfacing?

Typically, skin resurfacing facial treatments are a type of photorejuvenation that uses lasers or light to help treat skin conditions. Lasers have been known to minimize fine lines, acne scars, and other spots on the skin. However, there are other types of skin resurfacing that don’t involve lasers and work exceptionally well. The Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatment is an alternative type of skin resurfacing that helps repair similar skin damages and signs of pigmentation.

What is Venus Viva? 

The Venus Viva™ is a special machine with a handheld tool with tiny pins in it. These small pins are combined with RF heat (NanoFractional Radio Frequency) that work together to penetrate into the skin’s surface. Instead of using lasers, this process delivers heat which creates tiny wounds through the desired treatment area. The wounds are so small that it’s often hardly noticeable yet results in deeply effective treatment.

The tiny micro wounds are naturally healed by the body while increasing collagen production. This is why it’s so useful for wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, uneven pigmentation, and deep scars. Elastin fibers inside connective skin tissue are also stimulated which helps obtain more youthful results starting in 24 hours.

The Venus Viva™ treatments are safe, patented, and FDA-approved. The Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing is also the first age rejuvenating facial that can be manually customized for ablation settings which give efficient treatment.

Results include: 

  • noticeably smoother skin 
  • decreased lines and wrinkles 
  • skin tightening effect
  • improved results over time
  • plump, glowing skin
  • evened skin tone and pigmentation
  • increased collagen

Benefits of Venus Viva™ Skin Resurfacing 

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.
