Who is an ideal candidate for Venus Viva treatments?
The great thing about the Venus Viva is that it is safe and suitable for all skin types. Good candidates for Venus Viva skin resurfacing include anyone looking to improve the texture of their skin and any imperfections. It’s best to consult with one of our providers who may recommend additional or alternative procedures for your concerns.
What should I expect with my Venus Viva treatment?
Following a consultation to prepare you for your treatment, we have you arrive 30 minutes prior to your Venus Viva treatment for topical numbing to be applied and take effect. This reduces any discomfort you may experience otherwise.
The actual treatment takes approximately 15-30 minutes with our nurse. Patients may experience redness for 2-4 days following treatment, depending on the level of intensity with each treatment. There is no pain or discomfort and make-up, skincare, and sunscreen can be resumed 24 hours following treatment.
Three treatments, spaced out at least one month apart, is typically recommended and there is noticeable improvement with each treatment. Certain conditions may require up to six treatments. Maintenance is dependent on the skin condition but generally two to four treatments per year is recommended following an initial series of treatments. Other options available for maintenance include micro-needling and/or in-office chemical peels.
To enhance results, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) from your own blood can be applied to the skin during treatment to enhance results and speed up the recovery time. To utilize these growth factors, blood is drawn by our nurse and spun in a centrifuge while the numbing cream takes effect. The growth factors are then extracted from the blood and infused into the skin during your Venus Viva treatment.
