Anyone who shows signs of skin damage or has imperfections that affect the texture of their skin. This treatment can be done on all skin tones.
Treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart.
The Venus Viva™ combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and SmartScan technology into a system that delivers proven results through a skin heating process that offers minimal discomfort.. Venus Viva™ designed for ablation (removal) of soft tissue and resurfacing of the skin. The unique system allows the technician to manually control ablation and coagulation for enhanced treatment efficiency. The use of NanoFractional RF delivers energy through the epidermis, to the dermis, to generate heat and initiate skin change, rebuilding collagen and fibroblast stimulation, all resulting in tissue remodelling. Because the system is “colour blind” meaning it has no laser or light to it, the Venus Viva™ allows for all skin types and locations to be treated. Benefits of this treatment include the reduction of wrinkles, skin laxity, scars, acne scars, pores, textural irregularities, tone, and superficial skin lesions
The number of sessions in a treatment program will vary depending on the individual and the area being treated.
Venus RF treatments are most effective when done as a series of treatments, typically between 3-4 sessions, every 4-6 weeks.
The full effects become more noticeable 2-6 months after your series is completed.
Maintenance treatments to retain benefits twice a year can be beneficial as ageing is an ongoing process.
Due to the unique nature of the treatment head and the RF delivery, the majority of the ablation from the procedure occurs under the skin, allowing for less downtime.
Immediately after the treatment, the skin will be red and warm which will resolve in a few hours. Some mild sunburn sensation and redness post treatment is to be expected. which will generally subside within 36 hours.
We suggest that you do not apply any products to the skin for the first 48 hours after the procedure. Avoid any sun exposure for 72 hours following your treatment. A mineral makeup can be applied 48 hours after your treatment.
