If you are dealing with skin that has sustained extensive sun damage or developed lines and wrinkles, you may be looking for a laser treatment to help refresh the appearance of your skin and provide a more healthy, youthful appearance.
Venus Viva offers results that are similar to other types of laser treatments, with more comfort and less downtime. Unlike many laser treatments that only help those with fair complexions, Venus Viva treatments are safe and effective for every skin tone. Many patients also have superior results to treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
What is Venus Viva?
Venus Viva is a type of skin resurfacing procedure that utilizes extremely small pins that transfer heat using radiofrequency into the surface of your skin. The treatment process forms many tiny wounds, which triggers your body into a self-repair process. Venus Viva takes advantage of your own body’s natural healing mechanisms and helps to transform the appearance of your skin.
Venus Viva Advantages
Venus Viva is safe and effective for all skin tones. It is even safe and effective for darker complexions. The treatment requires little to no downtime, and most patients can resume their daily skin routine within one day of treatment.
Would I make a good candidate for Venus Viva?
You would likely make a good candidate for Venus Viva treatment if you are noticing signs of skin damage like scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, visible pores, or a rough skin texture.
Venus Viva is not for everyone. You may not be able to receive treatment if you have a permanent implant around the treatment area, a history of skin disorders or extremely dry skin, are pregnant or nursing, have an impaired immune system, or take blood thinners.
How should I prepare for my Venus Viva treatment?
Ensure that your skin is clean before your treatment. Refrain from applying any creams, lotions, or makeup before your Venus Viva treatment. You should also avoid tanning and wearing jewelry at the time of treatment.
Should I expect any downtime after my Venus Viva treatment?
Some treatments require only about 24 hours of recovery time, unlike other treatments that have downtimes that can last up to 10 days. Avoid rubbing anything into your skin immediately after your treatment. Once 24 hours have passed, you may apply makeup and resume your regular skin care regimen.
