Venus VIVA Scar Revision

The Venus VIVA utilises nano fractional RF (Radio Frequency) technology, to minimise surgical and traumatic scars.

Lengthy down time is avoided 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 fibrous scar tissue enabling deposition of new collagen, lifting depressions (scars and fine lines) from the bottom up, whilst the tissue heating causes tissues to contract, remodelling raised traumatic and surgical scars.

Benefits

  • Improve raised traumatic and surgical scars
  • Improve discolouration
  • Improve depressed/ pitted scars
  • Minimal discomfort

What can the Venus VIVA treat?

  • Surgical Scars
  • Traumatic Scars
  • Mild – Moderate acne scarring (please see VIVA Rejuvenation)

Who are the best candidates for Venus VIVAFractional RF?

  • Both men and women of all ages and all skin types who would like to see improvement to their scars.
  • Please note that scars must be at least 3-12 months old to begin treatments.

Contra indications (reason why VIVA Fractional RF may not be suitable for you)

  • Roaccutane in last 3 months
  • Pacemakers and fitted Pumps
  • Pregnancy or breast-feeding
  • History of keloid scarring or abnormal wound healing
  • Open wounds of any kind, eczema, dermatitis, active rosacea, active Herpes Simplex
  • Recent surgery in the area (with in last 3-6 months)
  • Cancer or radiation therapy

  • Recent waxing, IPL, laser therapy or injectable treatments (within last week)

*NB: please inform your nurse or therapist if you have ever experienced or are prone to darkening of the skin post trauma

Potential Complications (rare)

  • If the healing skin in incorrectly cared for it can prolong healing time and possibly lead to infection and scarring
  • Hyper-pigmentation (darker areas of pigment on the skin associated with trauma) lasting for 1 to 12 months. (Can be treated with medicated bleaching creams) We recommend darker skin types prep the skin with a bleaching cream 4 weeks prior to treatment
  • Possible herpes simplex outbreak if prone to cold sores in treatment area

How many sessions do I need?

The VIVA is designed to be performed as a course of treatments. Initially it is recommended you begin with 3-6 sessions spaced at 4 to 6 weekly intervals.

How will my skin react after the treatment?

Face:

  • Most patients will experience a mild sunburn like sensation that lasts 2 to 5 hours
  • Moderate redness with some swelling, immediately after and lasting up to 12 – 36 hours
  • Raised, red marks may be present; this is due to cool airflow from the hand piece and will fade shortly after treatment
  • Skin will feel rough to the touch, this typically resolves after 1-2 weeks
  • The treated area is generally sensitive to heat for 2 days following treatment

  • Most patients will experience a mild sunburn like sensation that lasts 2 to 5 hours
