Treatments with low downtime and safe for all skin tones.
Venus Viva is the newest FDA approved fractional radiofrequency device specifically designed to dramatically improve the tone, texture and overall quality of skin.

This fully customizable treatment is an FDA approved method using micro focused fractional radiofrequency energy which deeply heats the skin rather than burns it like other lasers, and gives much quicker rejuvenation after facial remodeling and resurfacing due to it’s decreased healing time. It can be used in all skin types, even those with dark or ethnic skin as the radiofrequency energy can target specific pigment changes. including scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, wrinkles, rosacea, and any other skin conditions that affect the texture of your skin. What makes Venus Viva™ truly unique is its ability to cover a greater surface area and treat multiple issues in the same session.
Q – How long will the procedure last?
Each Venus Viva treatment session is completed in about 15 minutes. A full course of therapy can be achieved in a single session however most patients receive three or four treatment sessions to achieve maximal results.
Q – What can I expect after the procedure?
A slight redness and warming of the skin occurs throughout a treatment session. For most people, this fades within a few hours after the session. For others with slightly more sensitive skin, the redness can linger and be accompanied by a discomfort like a sunburn for up to 36 hours.
Q – There should be a period of at least 12 hours between the end of a treatment session and the use of any skin care products. After 24 hours, mineral makeup can be applied to treated areas. Sun exposure should be avoided during the first 48 hours after a treatment session. Therefore, it is important to create a treatment schedule that will accommodate these after-treatment precautions.
The effects of a Venus Viva treatment will be visible immediately after a treatment session and will last for years. It should be expected, however, that new skin concerns can arise with time and repeat sessions are advisable.
Q – Are there risks?
Radiofrequency skin treatments are extremely low risk procedures. There is no cutting or application of medications that can cause the most common types of concerns involved with most medical procedures. The most common unwanted effect is skin redness and sensitivity; however, these tend to pass quickly. There is a risk of slight skin discomfort for some patients during the procedure. This can be avoided by pre-treating the target skin area with a topical analgesic.
Q – How soon can I return to work?
Most patients resume normal activities within 24 hours of a Venus Viva treatment session. For patients who wish to apply skin treatments or cosmetics before arriving at the workplace, it is important to remember that this may delay a return to work until the following day. For those in outdoor professions, 48 hours may be required before being able to return to work.
