Achieve beautiful, smoother, younger-looking skin without the downtime! Venus Viva™ NanoFractional RF resurfacing treatments are a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing for all skin tones and types without the recovery time, pain, and cost associated with other laser resurfacing procedures such as carbon dioxide (CO2) or erbium lasers, ablative laser, or pulsed light, Fraxel, and others.
This treatment corrects signs of skin damage and aging and improves the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, melasma, rough skin texture, enlarged pores, redness associated with rosacea, brown or red spots on the skin, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation.
Through several quick and virtually painless, fractional skin resurfacing treatments you can achieve tighter skin, with reduced visibility of textural and hyperpigmentation issues. You’ll also notice much better results than with superficial treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
Laser resurfacing employs light energy, while Venus Viva uses nano fractional radiofrequency (RF) technology. This device heats the skin deeply, which kickstarts the skin’s natural exfoliation process and stimulates long-term collagen production. At the same time, it does not burn the skin’s surface, bringing post-procedure recovery time down significantly compared to laser treatment. Viva is the perfect device to treat and repair skin. Reduce visibility of acne scars and rosacea while dramatically improving the skin’s overall texture and appearance to achieve a smoother, brighter, and more youthful complexion.
Skin laser resurfacing options such as CO2 lasers have been around since the 1970s. They are commonly associated with a lot of pain, discoloration, demarcation lines, and lengthy downtime as they are essentially removing the top layers of your skin.
Now you can receive the same results with minimal discomfort, complications, and downtime. And unlike lasers, which only work on fair complexions, Venus Viva™ treatments are safe for all skin tones.
Venus Viva™ treatments work with tiny pins that safely deliver heat through the skin’s surface via NanoFractional Radio Frequency. This process creates thousands of mini-wounds to the dermis, inducing the body’s natural healing response and stimulating collagen and elastin fiber induction, which smooths, tightens, and resurfaces the treatment areas.
DiamondPolar™ applicator will further enhance your treatments to diminish lines and wrinkles further. This process, which uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields, helps to increase collagen and elastin fibers naturally, resulting in smoother, firmer skin that looks noticeably more youthful.
These treatments are virtually painless and can be done in 15-30 minutes with minimal to no downtime required. You can return to your regular skincare and makeup routine just 24 hours after the treatment.
The ideal candidate for this treatment is anyone who has visible signs of damage, including acne scars, wrinkles, melasma, rough skin texture, enlarged pores, redness associated with rosacea, brown or red spots on the skin, and more.
Many patients choose this treatment for its unique features over other skin resurfacing procedures, including:
The most common areas we treat are the face, neck, and chest. The only facial regions that are not treated are the eyelids and lips.
Treatment also reduces fine lines too!
The process will start with consultation and evaluation with Dr. Okwuje to establish if you are an ideal candidate for this treatment and to help you decide on the best treatment plan to address your goals and concerns.
Each treatment session is short and lasts about 20-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. First, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the area being treated if needed to reduce any associated discomfort. Then the treated area will be thoroughly cleansed.
The Venus Viva system with the applicator will be expertly used to treat the specific areas selected. You will feel a warm sensation during the treatment, and you might experience what can be compared to slight pinpricks or little rubber band snaps with different pulses.
We will follow up with a patient-specific post-procedure topical application to protect your skin, and detailed post-treatment instructions will be provided and discussed if needed.
As with any skincare treatment, Venus Viva treatments are most effective when done as a series. Dr. Okwuje typically recommends at least four treatments being completed, usually in 4-week intervals.
More treatments might be needed for full effects based on your skin condition and needs. You will continue to see your improvements develop, becoming more noticeable 2-6 months after your series is completed. We recommend a quarterly maintenance schedule.
All our patients receive detailed pre and post-treatment instructions, including medications and topicals to avoid, contraindications, possible risks associated with the treatment, and the most suitable products to use to maintain the desired results before their first treatment.
It is essential that the skin is clean and free of any products before treatment and that if you have excessive hair in the treatment area, you shave it beforehand. Be prepared with information about your medical history as you will be asked about it to ensure your safety.
The treatment’s outstanding feature is the typical 24-hour downtime, unlike laser skin treatments where recovery or downtime lasts up to 14 days. Your skin will be red and a bit sensitive for the first 24 hours in most cases. You may put on makeup and resume your regular skincare routine after 24 hours. You should always apply physical sunscreen and protect your skin and avoid vigorous exercise and hot baths or massages on the treatment area for the first two days after your treatment.
Venus Viva treatments are very safe especially when compared to laser resurfacing options, and the FDA has cleared this device for skin treatments. Before your appointment, you will be screened for medical conditions which might prevent you from being the right candidate for this treatment.
