Venus Viva Laser Skin Resurfacing Is Your Ticket To Better Looking Skin

Laser skin resurfacing at Mara’s Med Spa using the Venus Viva device is your VIP ticket to younger, healthier skin. This state-of-the-art technology provides less discomfort and shorter downtimes than traditional CO2 laser skin resurfacing techniques while delivering exceptional results. If you notice signs of skin damage, such as acne scars, rosacea, wrinkles, or skin pigmentation, then you owe it to yourself to consider Venus Viva at Mara’s Med Spa.

What is Venus Viva Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Venus Viva is a non-surgical skin resurfacing device that uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency to resurface the skin. This new technology is different from traditional CO2 lasers, making the treatment more comfortable with less downtime.  Venus Viva features a tip with tiny pins that penetrate the epidermis, delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the layers of the skin to promote and amplify collagen and elastin production. The unique pin pattern creates tiny micro-dermal wounds into the treatment area. These micro-dermal wounds signal the body to produce a natural healing response that generates more collagen. More collagen means younger, healthier-looking skin. As a bonus, the surrounding healthy tissue helps heal these micro-wounds, improving the skin’s texture and tone. As your body heals itself, you will see smoother skin texture and tone as well as reduced visibility of dark spots and other blemishes.

What Kind of Skin Imperfections Can Venus Viva Laser Skin Resurfacing Help With?

How is Venus Viva Different from Other Skin Resurfacing?

A Venus Viva skin resurfacing treatment delivers the same or better results as CO2 laser treatments but without the pain. And, while other laser skin resurfacing is recommended mainly for light or fair skin, Venus Viva works on all ethnicities and skin tones. There is little to no downtime following Venus Viva treatments, especially compared to other types of skin resurfacing treatments in the Dallas area. For 24 hours after a session, you should not put on cosmetics, have massages, or take hot baths or showers. You may experience some redness during that time as well as the body’s immune system and healing processes repair the micro-damage caused by the radiofrequency bursts. But after that first day, you’ll be able to return to your regular skincare routine and resume normal activities immediately after that time. If you underwent laser treatment instead, you could expect downtime of up to 10 days.  Did You Know?

What Is A Venus Viva Skin Resurfacing Treatment Session Like?

To ensure that you are comfortable during your Venus Viva session at Mara’s Med Spa in Dallas, your fully-trained and experienced esthetician will begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the treatment area, which takes around 20 minutes to take full effect. Once the treatment area is ready, the patented Venus Viva applicator handpiece is used to deliver the radiofrequency (RF) bursts to the treatment area. The treatment should take about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the total skin area targeted. While you will likely feel a slight warmth and pinprick sensations, the topical anesthesia should minimize any discomfort.

How Many Venus Viva Sessions Will I Need For Optimal Results?

Although you may see results after your first Venus Viva treatment session at Mara’s Med Spa, we recommend three to five sessions for optimal results. However, some patients with severe scarring may need 8-12 sessions.  Treatment sessions are generally scheduled every four to six weeks.

How Do I Prepare For Treatment?

Please do not apply any cosmetics, creams, lotions, perfumes, or powder before arriving at Mara’s for your treatment session, and avoid prolonged sun exposure before your treatment as well. If you have any skin conditions on the areas we plan on treating, please let us know during your complimentary consultation.
