How it Works
To treat wrinkles, large pores, uneven texture, scars from injury or acne we use the nano-fractional RF smart scan technology from Venus Concept – the Venus Viva. Treatment time is usually 1.25 hours depending on size of the treatment area, numbing cream is applied 30 minutes prior to your treatment so that the procedure is comfortable. The Viva handpiece is then applied on the skin and pulses are directed into the skin to cause multiple micro channels, which in turn starts the collagen and elastin synthesis. We usually recommend a series of 3 treatments depending on your concerns.
Avoid using makeup on the day of your appointment.
Avoid tanning or the use of self tanning creams
If you regularly use medications or supplements, there is an increased risk of bruising in the treated area.
Avoid treatments that may irritate the skin two weeks prior including botox or fillers.
Patients typically experience some redness and swelling and minor discomfort in the treatment area during and after treatments. This is normal and usually subsides and no down time is needed.
We recommend nothing is put on your skin unless prescribed at time of treatment for 24 hours after your treatment.
Avoid strenous excercise immediately after treatment and high impact activity for at least 2 days.
Avoid excessive heat for at least 2 days including, hot tubs, hot showers, saunas, swimming pools. no UV exposure.
No UV exposure for at least 7 days.
Avoid products that may irritate the skin, such as astringents
Daily use of broad spectrum SPF30 is recommened.
