Smoother, clearer and better-looking skin is desired by everyone. It is often found that the most available options to achieve these skin goals are either painful, risky or expensive. However, Venus Viva™ is known to be among the most effective non-surgical solutions when it comes to correcting skin damage signs and improving deep wrinkles, uneven texture, acne scars and rosacea along with many other skin related issues.
The CO2 laser is often thrown as another effective solution but all such procedures are known to have the downtime of several weeks as well as a lot of pain. But Venus Viva™ delivers the same (or even better) results with far less downtime and pain. As opposed to laser treatments, Venus Viva™ is safe and effective for all skin tones and types.
Understanding Venus Viva™ treatment:
This treatment methodology uses tiny pins to deliver heat through the skin’s surface with the help of Nano Fractional Radiofrequency (RF) technology under a controlled and safe environment. Tens of hundreds of mini-wounds are created to the dermis with the help of microneedles. The body uses its own power to naturally heal the wounds and, as a result, corrects skin damage during the process. Comparative to CO2 laser treatment, these wounds are very small and far less painful.
It is to be understood that these treatments are performed only by well-trained and expert practitioners and numbing topical agents are available for comforting the patients. It is recommended to avail the opportunity of free consultation in order to explore different options if you are worried about discomfort during or after the treatment.

How to prepare for a treatment session?
First of all, be sure to let the practitioner know about any skin condition on the region that is to be treated. It is recommended to limit exposure to the sun a few days before treatment. Moreover, avoid applying or using any kind of creams, lotions, powders, makeup or perfumes at the time of treatment.
What to expect during treatment?
The first thing your practitioner will make sure at the start of the treatment is that you are comfortable. So, he or she will use a topical anesthetic that usually takes up to 20 minutes to take effect. A special applicator handpiece is then used for delivery of the radio frequency (RF) bursts at the respective area. It may take up to 20 to 25 minutes, depending upon the total area to be treated. It is normal to feel pinprick sensations and slight warmth. The pain is minimal and often negligible due to topical anesthesia. Some patients may experience slight discomfort but it is usually for a very small duration only.
What to expect Post-treatment?
As the wounds start healing through the body’s own immune system, it is normal for patients to experience slight redness for up to a week. However, patients should expect to return to their normal life activities straight away without taking any time off. All patients get customized skincare routines and instructions related to taking care of skin during the first few weeks from practitioners. In most cases, patients start wearing makeup within 24 to 36 hours of treatment.
Do I need multiple treatments to see clear results?
In most cases, some visible improvement is seen after the first treatment. However, more treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the ultimate goal. The exact number of treatment sessions will vary from case to case, but often 3 to 4 treatment sessions, with a gap of 3 to 6 weeks in between, maybe enough.
Is the treatment backed by science?
As mentioned earlier, Venus Viva treatment uses the combination of RF and microneedles to heat deeper layers of skin in order to cause tiny damages at the targeted areas of skin. The damage, thus, stimulates the natural repair and healing power of the body and ultimately leads to a stronger collagen support network. This also results in the growth of fresh and healthy new skin cells. The end result is smoother and clearer skin texture, smoother skin tone and reduction of dark spots on the skin.
May I use this treatment with another skin therapy?
Venus Viva has been successfully used as part of a combo therapy by numerous patients. It is most commonly used with IPL treatment for tone and color correction, RF skin tightening, microdermabrasion and chemical peels for cleaning of acne lesions and soft tissue fillers to improve the aesthetic outcome of the skincare regimen.
As an advanced stage of the treatment and for better effectiveness and quicker healing, you may also want to have an add-on treatment procedure along with Venus Viva™, where your blood is drawn, centrifuged for purification and applied to the skin after the therapy. Due to concentrated growth factors, the serum speeds up and improves the overall healing process after the treatment.
What is the cost of Venus Viva treatment?
The exact cost of this treatment will depend upon a number of factors, including the overall size of the area and the total number of treatment sessions. However, in most cases, the cost usually ranges from $150 to $600. Feel free to have a consultation with a practitioner to gain an idea about cost as well as other important aspects of the Venus Viva treatment.
