Venus Viva™ MD uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) to deliver energy to the skin through multiple small electrode-pins that sit on the surface of the skin. The energy heats and evaporates tiny columns in the skin. The impact looks like pin-pricks to the naked eye. Natural healing responses then stimulate and rebuild collagen. The result is reduced skin damage and a more even looking complexion with little or no downtime.
What to expect:
- Topical anesthesia (numbing cream) may be administered
- Quick treatment. Normally about 20 – 30 minutes
- Tiny scabbing may occur
- No downtime. You can return to normal activities immediately
- 3 – 5 treatments but varies by patient and condition
Stretch marks develop when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear.
Not everyone develops these narrow bands on their skin. Fluctuating hormone levels seem to play a role. You may also have a higher risk if people in your family get stretch marks.
