Venus Viva™

Are skin irregularities preventing you from having the smooth, clear complexion you’ve always desired? Do you struggle to treat surface blemishes, pigmentation, and aging with drugstore or over-the-counter treatments? The daily struggle for a bright, even complexion can become frustrating. The Venus Viva™ is a revolutionary, non-surgical laser treatment to help you achieve a more flawless, smooth complexion.

What Do You Desire?

Diminished Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Folds

Diminished Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Folds

As we age, we lose collagen and elastin fibers in our facial tissues, which can cause them to become weak. As this happens, fine lines and wrinkles become etched into the face, significantly aging your appearance. Venus Viva™ uses custom laser heads to tailor your treatment to reach hard-to-treat wrinkles, such as around the mouth and near the eyes. The Venus Viva™ works in the deepest tissue layers to stimulate collagen production. The new increase in collagen fills facial wrinkles for a smoother, flawless complexion.

Tighter Skin Around the Neck, Jowls, and Chest

Tighter Skin Around the Neck, Jowls, and Chest

The Venus Viva™ is a revolutionary treatment that provides skin tightening that previously was only possible with a surgical facelift. The cause of skin laxity is the same as wrinkle development: a lack of elastin fibers and collagen. When tissue becomes weak, it is more prone to drooping and sagging. By stimulating new collagen production, a tighter, more firm skin matrix is formed. This process tightens skin and provides additional support to prevent tissue sagging. The Venus Viva™ can be used to treat skin laxity along the lower face, neck, jowls, and chest for an overall more youthful appearance.

Eliminate Facial Redness and Rosacea

Eliminate Facial Redness and Rosacea

Facial redness and rosacea (chronic, aggressive facial redness) are caused by dilated or prominent veins that lie just below the skin’s surface. While many facial cleansers and drugstore products claim to treat facial redness, these effects are usually only temporary. The Venus Viva™ provides long-lasting correction of facial redness and rosacea by targeting the physical vein. The heat from the laser causes the veins close to the surface of the skin to become tacky and close. Your body will absorb the destroyed vein, eliminating its appearance from your skin and helping you achieve a clear, even skin tone.

Improved Acne Scarring

Improved Acne Scarring

Aggressive acne and mistreatment of acne breakouts can lead to extensive visible scarring. There aren’t many over-the-counter medications that can treat visible scarring once it occurs. Venus Viva™ works deep within the tissues to stimulate collagen production, which smooths and improves the appearance of scars. In the process of correcting acne scarring, the Venus Viva™ can also treat current acne and large pores by killing surface bacteria. The overall improvement in your acne and associated scarring leaves you with a healthier complexion.

What Are Your Concerns?

Recovery

Following your Venus Viva™ treatment, you might experience some mild to moderate skin redness.

Most patients feel comfortable returning to work and going about their normal social activities immediately following their procedure. You can apply makeup the day after your treatment. Facial redness and irritation may last two to five days. After five days, your final results should become visible.
