At Utah Facial Plastics we are big on technology, but only if studies show it actually works. Like anything, most things are done best in a series. Nothing is usually a quick fix and some treatments are not best for everyone.
Venus Viva skin resurfacing is a non-surgical solution that corrects signs of skin damage and improves the appearance of acne scars and other scars, stretch marks, rosacea, enlarged pores, deep wrinkles, and uneven skin texture and pigmentation. The great thing about Venus is that it treats for texture, tone, and is great for all skin types. It can be used anywhere on the body and stimulates collagen for long lasting results. Acne scars and stretch marks are very hard to treat and Venus Viva can minimize them greatly.
Pam, a Utah Facial Plastics patient has been having a series of treatments to improve the appearance of stretch marks on her thighs. She has done 4 treatments and has noticed a 50% improvement. She said the texture of the stretch marks have improved greatly and she is happy with her results. She plans on doing 2-3 more treatments. Depending on the damage, concerns, and area, 2-6 treatments are recommended. Like anything, maintenance treatments can be done after as needed.
What to expect during your treatment?
When you come in to have your treatment a topical numbing solution will be put onto the area and left on for 1 hour. The actual treatment takes about 10-15 minutes. Pain tolerance is different for everyone, but is manageable. The area usually stays red for a day or 2. Pin point scabs form, which are barely visable but more of a rough texture and lasts 2-4 days. This can be covered with sunscreen and makeup if needed, but best to stay out of the sun completely. Treatments should be spaced out about one month apart.
We like Venus Viva because it can treat nearly everyone, can treat for many things, and has minimal downtime. Venus Viva might be just what you need!
