How does it work?
The Venus Viva MD applicator delivers NanoFractional Radiofrequency through the skin in tiny columns, causing ablation and coagulation. This promotes fibroblast stimulation and collagen remodelling with improvement in scarring, and healthier smoother and tighter skin.
Nano-Fractional Radiofrequency technology shares a similar mode of action and can achieve similar results as seen with the traditional ablative lasers, particularly with CO2 lasers. However, unlike ablative lasers, Nano-Fractional Radiofrequency technology is significantly less painful, with less recovery time, is much safer on all skin types and has lower risk of hyper/hypopigmentation.
Venus Viva MD is a highly effective device for the treatment of acne scars, stretchmarks, skin laxity, fine lines and deep wrinkles. It is also effective in the reduction of pore size and improvement in skin texture. It is safe for all skin types, with rapid recovery time and minimal discomfort.
Utilising NanoFractional Radiofrequency, Venus Viva MD allows customizable control of ablation and coagulation.
The new device has state of the art two tip (160 and 80) options and higher energy output per pin than previous models to achieve the above results.
Conditions suitable for treatment with this procedure:
Acne and other types of scarring
Skin laxity on the face and body including neck, abdomen (excellent for post baby belly), buttocks and arms
General skin rejuvenation
One week prior to treatment, please discontinue exfoliatives such as retinoids, AHA’s and scrubs.
A local anaesthetic cream will be applied prior to the procedure for 30 - 45 minutes. Other forms of analgesia may also be used prior to and during the procedure to minimise discomfort. The energy settings are customised and treatment is designed specifically to the patient’s skin type and medical condition being treated. Treatment may be combined with growth factors, PRP/Factor 4.
Immediately following the procedure it is normal to experience a feeling of sunburn on the skin, redness, heat and some swelling, which may occur for 1-3 days. Skin dryness and flaking or “sandpaper“ feel may occur for the following few days depending on the type of treatment performed. Scarring and pigmentation changes are possible, but unlikely. Cold sore or other infections may occur. Notify clinic of any concerns such as blistering, excessive redness or swelling etc.
Following the procedure, patients are to:
Avoid sun exposure and use broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Please use post procedure skincare as advised.
Do not pick treated areas.
Ice or cooling compresses may be used.
Swimming, hot tub, spas and saunas, activities causing heavy sweating and friction should be avoided until the skin heals.
Avoid skin irritants (Retinol, Tretinoin, AHA/BHA, astringents, benzoyl peroxide etc) until skin has healed.
Makeup may be applied after the first day.
Results can be seen after the first treatment, however Venus concept recommends 3 to 6 treatments, four weeks apart for optimal results. Some patients may achieve the desired outcome with fewer treatments.
