What can someone expect with a Venus Viva treatment?

A personalized treatment plan is tailored to each patient’s individual needs. Makeup should not be worn for the appointment or removed prior to treatment. The skin is gently cleansed in preparation for the treatment. Topical numbing cream will be applied to the face in order to provide comfort during the treatment. A small handheld device is used by Dr. Murray that resembles a hair dryer. The device is held to the patient’s skin and a small light pulse is delivered. The device is moved around the face to treat the desired areas. The treatment typically takes 15 to 30 minutes. The fractional radiofrequency pulses emitted cause very small micropores in the skin which later produce collagen. This can cause patients to feel warmth or sensitivity in the skin that usually goes away in a few hours. We will recommend patients take Allegra or Claritin prior to the procedure to help with the sensitivity. 

After Venus Viva treatment:

Most patients resume normal activities immediately after their treatment. Vigorous exercise should be avoided until the following day. It is recommended to wait 12 hours before using any skin product and 24 hours before wearing any mineral makeup. Sun exposure should be avoided for 48 hours after treatment, A  hat should be worn when sun exposure cannot be avoided. Sunscreen with a SPF 30 or above should be used to help protect the skin from the sun.  Compared to laser treatment for the skin, the recovery is much faster and the treatment much safer.
