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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A topical anesthetic is applied prior to your treatment, numbing the face for a pain-free procedure.
When this wears off, you might experience some minor irritation that lasts only a day and can be treated with oral pain medication.
Most patients notice a visible improvement in the quality of their skin tone and texture after just one visit.
However, most patients will require multiple treatments to achieve their ideal results. Depending on the extent of correction required and your body’s natural healing process, you may need between three and six treatments to achieve the smooth, flawless complexion you desire.
Since every Venus Viva™ treatment is tailored to provide the individual patient with the best results, the cost of your treatment will be determined during your consultation.
extent of correction required will affect the ultimate cost of your procedure.
The Venus Viva™ is a NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ laser that uses SmartScan™ technology. It targets very specific areas of damaged tissue, leaving the surrounding healthy skin intact. The customizable laser allows Dr. Martin to control the depth of penetration in the target area for results that are perfectly tailored to your needs.
The Venus Viva™ is safe and effective for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is also safe and effective for all skin tones, including patients with darker complexions.
Each Venus Viva™ treatment only requires a 15 to 30-minute in-office visit followed by a 30-minute recovery period, after which you can resume your normal activities.
Venus Viva™ is ideal for almost any patient. Certain illnesses, infections, or skin problems may limit your ability to use Venus Viva™. Dr. Martin will advise you if you fall into any of these categories. Patients should also consider the timing of important events when scheduling their Venus Viva™ treatments. You should complete treatment at least four to six weeks before any major event to ensure proper healing and maximum results.
