The Venus VIVA is an advanced, non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing that works to improve the overall texture of the skin. It combines Nano-Fractional Radio Frequency (RF) technology, to deliver total skin rejuvenation minimizing mild acne scarring and improving sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles.
Lengthy down time is avoided, as experienced with more ablative peels and laser treatments, by piercing the skin with micro columns of RF energy deep into the layers of the skin, leaving surrounding tissues in-tact and rapidly stimulating the body’s natural healing responses. These dermal injuries can perforate skin tissue enabling deposition of new collagen, lifting depressions (scars and fine lines) from the bottom up, whilst the tissue heating causes tissues to contract, resulting in a softer, smoother and firmer looking skin.
**Results may vary from person to person**
The VIVA RF is a complete skin rejuvenation system that provides fast results with less pain and downtime than other current products on the market.
NOTE: VIVA can be used anywhere on the body for rejuvenation such hands, arms and Improves the appearance of stretch marks and mild scarring.
NOTE: Good for people who do not feel ready for, or do not yet need laser resurfacing or medium depth peels or as a prevention method.

The VIVA is designed to be performed in a course of treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Initially it is recommended you begin with 3-6 treatments, however deeper lines, scarring and other severe skin conditions will take more regular sessions which will be discussed with you during your consultation. The eye area responds well to 3-4 sessions.
A single treatment last no longer than 30 minutes. The VIVA handpiece is passed over the area, a pickling sensation along with heat will be felt. A relief topical anesthesia (cream), which offers excellent pain relief may be applied to facial areas to limit discomfort.
