Correct: skin laxity, acne scarring, stretch marks and textural imperfections.
Maintain: firm skin and collagen production by performing 2-4 times per year.
What is the Venus Viva treatment?
The Venus Viva uses fractional radio frequency to effectively treat textural irregularities, scarring, wrinkles and stretch marks.
How does the Venus Viva work?
During the treatment, energy is delivered through the epidermis to the dermis, generating heat while simulating fibroblasts and rebuilding collagen.
What areas can be treated?
Treatments can be done on almost any area that has wrinkles, scarring or textural imperfections. There can be no metal implants directly under the treatment area such as rods, plates or screws. Fillings and dental implants are ok. Pacemakers or implanted defibrillators are a contraindication to treatment.
Popular treatment areas are the face and neck.
What can I expect during my treatment?
Prior to your treatment, you will be given numbing cream to apply to the treatment area 1 hour prior to your treatment.
Your medical history will be reviewed and you will be asked to sign a consent. In the treatment room your provider will remove the numbing cream and take photos for documentation purpose.
The treatment is generally well tolerated without any discomfort. Immediately after the treatment your skin will be red and feel warm. You may experience some swelling. These side effects are desired and usually only last for 24 hours.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, we do a corrective series of 3 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Since we are building collagen, timing of the treatments is important, we do not like to go beyond 4 weeks between treatments so you obtain the best possible results.
Once you have done your corrective series, maintenance treatments can be performed 3-4 times per year. Remember skin is like hair and nails and needs to be treated on a regular basis.
What kind of results can I expect?
With each treatment you can expect your skin to appear firmer with improved texture and a more youthful glow. The best thing is, that the improvements continue for several months after your final treatment!!
