What is Venus Versa?
Venus Versa™ is a medical aesthetic device that can target a wide range of aesthetic concerns using a combination of different clinical technologies. The system can deliver up to nine different treatments that address concerns from anti-aging and skin resurfacing, to hair removal and acne reduction. Your treatment provider may not offer all nine treatments, so it’s always best to check with them beforehand about what their specific Venus Versa™ treatment system is equipped with.
Skin Resurfacing with Venus Versa Viva Applicator
Smoother Skin Without The Downtime
Venus Versa Viva™ Applicator is a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing that corrects signs of skin damage and improves the appearance of acne scars and other scars, rosacea, enlarged pores, deep wrinkles, and uneven skin texture and pigmentation.
When it comes to skin resurfacing, CO2 lasers used to be the frontrunner, but these procedures also came with a lot of pain and downtime that could last several weeks, if not longer (since they essentially remove the top layer of your skin). Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments, on the other hand, deliver the same results, but with significantly less pain and much less downtime. And unlike some lasers which only work on fair complexions, Venus Viva™ treatments are safe for all skin tones. You’ll also notice superior results than with superficial treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
What are Venus Versa Viva Applicator Skin Treatments?
Venus Versa Viva Applicator skin resurfacing treatments work with tiny pins that safely deliver heat, via nano-fractional radiofrequency (RF), through the skin’s surface. These microneedles creates thousands of mini-wounds to the dermis, which the body naturally heals. This process repairs signs of skin damage visible on the surface of the skin. Since the wounds are so small, the treatment is much better tolerated than traditional CO2 lasers, making Venus Viva procedures relatively painless in comparison. These procedures are performed by our expert practitioners, and we offer a topical numbing agent to provide comfort for the patient. If you have any concerns about discomfort, please feel free to ask about other options during your free consultation.
Venus Versa Viva Applicator is used to treat the following conditions:
- Acne scars, fine wrinkles, and superficial blemishes of the skin
- Pigment irregularities such as sun damage and freckles
- Shallow scars from injuries and surgery
- Hyperpigmentation and rosacea
- Lax skin around the neck, jowls and décolletage
- Rough, uneven skin tone
- Red or brown spots on the skin
What to Expect
Please do not apply any lotions, creams, perfumes, powder, or makeup, and avoid prolonged sun exposure prior to your treatment. If you have any skin conditions on the area(s) to be treated, please let us know in advance.
To ensure that you are comfortable during the procedure we will apply a topical anesthetic which takes around twenty minutes to take affect. We will then use a special applicator hand piece to deliver the radiofrequency (RF) bursts to the treatment area, which takes about fifteen to twenty minutes, depending on the total area treated. You’ll feel a slight warmth and pinprick sensations, but the pain should be minimal with the topical anesthesia. Most patients handle the treatment very well, and any discomfort is short in duration.
Most patients will experience mild redness for a few days after treatment as the body’s immune system repairs the micro-damage caused by the radiofrequency bursts. However, most patients do not need to take time off and can return to normal daily activities. Your practitioner will provide you with skin care instructions for the first few days after your procedure. You can resume wearing makeup just 24 hours after your treatment.
