Stretch marks can make it awkward to go to the beach or gym. If pregnancy or an otherwise successful weight loss plan has left you with stretch marks, Venus Viva can quickly and safely remove them. It can also resurface and restore your skin, eliminating aging signs and scars. If you want to know more about this treatment, contact Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL for more details.
What Is Venus Viva?
Venus Viva is a skin resurfacing treatment from Venus Treatments that is designed to rejuvenate the skin in quick and painless treatment sessions. The skin treatment is non-invasive and involves no surgery, using microneedles and pulses of NanoFractional radiofrequency or RF energy to boost your skin’s collagen production. Collagen is the substance that rebuilds the skin when it is damaged and increases the skin’s elasticity.
This leaves your skin renewed and youthful after treatment. We can use the treatment to address various skin conditions and damage to the skin caused by aging and lifestyle.
Does It Work on Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are scars that form when the skin is stretched due to weight gain, hormones, and pregnancy. They may be pale or dark and look like cracks or tears in the skin. Venus Viva can be an excellent choice for treating stretch marks. The NanoFractional RF energy creates collagen that rejuvenates the scarred skin, reducing the appearance, or even eliminating, stretch marks.
This treatment heats the skin to stimulate collagen production using NanoFractional RF energy. The collagen restructures and rebuilds the skin where scars and blemishes have formed, and the treatment is more effective than laser therapy and chemical peels. Wrinkles, fine lines, rosacea, dark spots, and enlarged pores are some other skin conditions that can be treated with NanoFractional RF energy. After the treatment, you will have smooth and tight skin with a more even tone and texture.
Where Is the Treatment Most Effective?
The face is the most common area that we treat, but the neck and d?colletage, or chest skin area, are also treatable, along with many other areas. We can refresh the skin on your face, giving you a youthful and healthy look. Wrinkles, lines, enlarged pores, and acne scars can be eliminated from your complexion. We can also reduce skin laxity and blemishes on your neckline and chest, giving you a more youthful appearance overall.
The most common areas for stretch mark reduction are the abdomen, buttocks, legs, and upper arms. Each of these areas can be treated with NanoFractional RF energy. Almost every part of the body can be treated to reduce scars and skin laxity.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Treatment?
This treatment is safe for all skin tones and can treat you regardless of your age and gender. We can quickly remove your skin imperfections, and you can return to work without any downtime. The treatment can be a good choice if you have little free time because you can complete a treatment session during your lunch break and return to work or your normal routine immediately.
During your consultation, we can give you a good idea of how many sessions you will need and what results you can expect from the treatment. We will ask you questions about your health and medical history during your initial consultation to determine the safety and effectiveness of the treatment for you.
Questions like whether you have had recent surgery, dry skin, an active infection, allergies, and other disorders will help us determine your treatment plan. If you are pregnant or nursing, the treatment may not be recommended. The RF energy can also be unsafe to use if you have metal implants or devices in your body. The treatment is also not recommended if you are taking blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications, or have had excessive sun exposure.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
This treatment can be concluded in three to four sessions for most patients. Each session takes 15 to 30 minutes, and your sessions will be spaced at least four weeks apart to allow for your recovery. Your results will come soon after your treatment sessions, but it takes time for the collagen to rebuild the skin. How many sessions you need and how much time it takes to see results will depend on your skin condition.
The treatment results are not permanent, and you will need to come back for a maintenance session every 6 to 12 months to prolong your youthful skin. Keeping your skin moisturized and protected from the sun can help you maintain healthy skin, but the frequency of touch-up treatments depends on your skin health and age.
Is the Treatment Safe?
Venus Viva is an FDA-approved skin resurfacing treatment and is safe for most patients. The treatment is an excellent alternative to invasive surgical procedures to tighten the skin and remove blemishes. It is also more effective than lasers on every skin tone and can provide results in just a few quick sessions. The treatment is not painful and will not cause any damage to your skin.
