Venus Viva™ is an advanced, non-surgical skin resurfacing solution designed to improve overall skin texture. Combining two proprietary technologies, the Viva helps you achieve smoother, brighter, healthier looking skin. The Venus Viva™ works by reducing signs of skin aging caused by conditions affecting skin texture. At Las Vegas Dermatology, we use the Venus Viva to treat skin damage, scars, stretch marks, large pores, wrinkles and rosacea. Venus Viva™ has a large spot size, which can cover a greater surface area and treat multiple issues in the same session because of its unique design.
Safe for all skin tones and types
Radiofrequency treatments involve the use of electricity and heat and are generally considered safe and effective for all skin types. The Venus Viva cannot be used if there is a recent history of tanning, chemical peels, toxins or filler treatments. The device should not be used if you are pregnant.
You will experience post-treatment redness lasting 2-3 days. Areas such as neck, chest and hands may take more time to heal. Healing times may be quicker with the addition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)- a blood draw that involves using the power of your own platelets to assist in wound healing. You may proceed with normal activities immediately post treatment and makeup can be applied 24 hours post treatment.
What to expect
Radiofrequency treatments involve heat and without proper numbing, such treatments can be uncomfortable. Most patients are pretreated with topical numbing agents 45 minutes to 60 minutes prior to the skin tightening procedure. Treatment sessions take 30 minutes or less depending on the target area size. The number of treatment sessions required will vary depending on individual patient skin damage and needs- most people require 3-4 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
How It Works
Venus Viva™ utilizes tiny pins, which deliver heat safely via Nano Fractional Radio Frequency™ through the skin’s surface. Viva treatments create tiny micro-dermal wounds, allowing the body to naturally heal post procedure. It is through this wound healing process that the Viva works to repair signs of skin damage on the skin’s surface. Because individual Viva wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than lasers or chemical peels. The result is smoother, healthier skin with minimal downtime.
Venus Viva™ also works to target fine lines and wrinkles with the non-invasive DiamondPolar™ applicator, which uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce uniform heat on the skin. These two technologies work together to increase collagen and stimulate a natural healing response, resulting in a dramatic skin improvement with little pain and downtime.
