How Does the Venus Viva Work?
Collagen induction and remodeling is the process of activating the body’s ability to naturally rebuild and regenerate collagen. The Venus Viva delivers collagen induction and remodeling results by combining NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and its one-of-a-kind SmartScan technology.
Nanofractional means that the pulses emitted from the Venus Viva tip create very small, often microscopic wounds in the skin. Micro-wounds minimize downtime, and the body creates new collagen and elastin as the micro-wounds heal.
The heat from the radio frequency tightens existing collagen (called remodeling) while stimulating collagen production cells (fibroblasts). Along with boosting collagen production, Venus Viva treatments improve skin healty by increasing blood supply and improving circulation. The net result is that lines, wrinkles and scars are smoothed out, discoloration such as sun spots and rosacea are corrected, and skin tone and texture are even out.
Who Is A Candidate for Venus Viva Treatments?
Venus Viva is effective for all skin types and tones, including dark tones and sensitive skin. Treatments are safe for healthy individuals, unless you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or experiencing an active skin infection.
What to Expect During a Venus Viva Treatment
First a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for about 30 minutes to minimize any discomfort. During that time post-care will be reviewed to ensure all your questions are answered. The numbing cream is removed and the treatment area is disinfected.
During the treatment most feel warmth, and you may experience what can be compared to a zap or pin prick with the different pulses. Some areas will experience these sensations more than others.
During the procedure settings may be adjusted for specific treatment areas and conditions being treated. For example, settings for treating pigment from sun damage, age, or rosacea are different than those for tightening skin. Higher energy settings for more pronounced results may be less comfortable.
If you have opted to add AnteAGE MD Growth Factor Solution or AnteAGE MD Brightening Solution to your treatment, it will be applied immediately after treatment. If you have opted to include LED Light Therapy with your treatment, you will relax for 20 minutes under the LED lights to jump start the healing process.
What to Expect After a Venus Viva Treatment
Immediately following your treatment, your skin will feel warm and appear pink or moderately red. Some say it looks and feels similar to a sunburn, and it may last up to three days. Some light to moderate mild swelling is also possible which should go down within 12 to 24 hours.
You may notice small pin-point crusts where the electrode pins of the treatment head contacted the skin. These will naturally exfoliate within a week or so and can easily be covered with makeup.
Because the Venus Viva treatment creates tiny wounds, it is very important to follow the post care instructions provided. It is important to keep anything that touches the treated area(s) is clean and dry. If the face or neck are treated, fresh pillowcases the first two nights after treatment are important.
The healing process includes a few days of skin flaking before brighter, smoother skin begins to appear. This typically takes a week, and you’ll typically notice continued improvement for about three months as deeper skin remodeling takes place and new skin cells are replenished. You can just choose one treatment if you’re already happy with what you see, but the most optimal results are achieved with a series of three to four treatments spaced about a month apart.
