Skin Treatment for the Face or Body.
The skin is an integral part of your body, and keeping it smooth, youthful, healthy, and tight is essential. If your skin is damaged, blemished or botched, you require skin resurfacing to rejuvenate and replenish it.
Our team at Skin Med Spa & Laser performs skin resurfacing treatment procedures that provide you with an even, toned and smooth skin. If you have acne scars, facial lines, aging skin, among other skin blemishes, we highly recommend having skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing works by eliminating old layers of skin and generating new skin cells that make the skin appear tighter and younger.

Venus Viva™ Technology
When it comes to skin resurfacing, CO2 lasers used to be the frontrunner, but these procedures also came with a lot of pain and downtime (since they essentially remove the top layer of your skin). Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments, on the other hand, deliver the same results, just with significantly less pain and much lower downtime.
How it works
Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments work with tiny pins that safely deliver heat (via NanoFractional Radio Frequency) through the skin’s surface. This creates tiny micro-dermal wounds, which the body naturally heals on its own. This process repairs signs of skin damage visible on the surface of the skin. Since the wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional CO2 lasers, while still producing incredibly visible results.
Your treatment provider may also enhance your treatment plan with the DiamondPolar™ applicator, which works to further diminish lines and wrinkles*. The DiamondPolar™ applicator uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce uniform heat under the skin’s surface. This process helps to naturally increase collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in smoother, firmer skin that looks noticeably more youthful.
✔ SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TONES:
Unlike most other skin resurfacing treatments that are not safe for darker skin tones, Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing is safe for all ethnicities, even for darker complexions.
✔ LOW TO NO DOWNTIME:
Return to your daily skin care routine 24 hours after skin resurfacing treatments. No downtime at all for wrinkle reduction treatments.
✔ QUICK TREATMENTS:
Sessions last only 15-30 minutes.

You will feel tiny pins on your skin followed by a little zap. Your face will then feel warm, like a sunburn.
Venus Viva™ treatments may be slightly uncomfortable, but not painful. You’ll feel intense heat, similar to the feeling of sunburn, and your face will look red right after the treatment. For more aggressive treatments, you may get a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort.
Your skin will be red and feel warm afterward, like a sunburn. You can ease this by fanning or exposing the area to cool air. Don’t put anything on your skin, not even tap water, for 24 hours. The warm feeling should go away within 24 hours.

Your skin will be red and for the first 24 hours, you will not be allowed to apply or rub anything on your skin, including water or sweat (so no hot yoga or any other exercise that will make you perspire).

But avoid rigorous exercise and hot baths or massages on the treatment area for the first 2 days after your session. Make sure to keep your skin clean and protected from the sun. Avoid any sort of tanning.
After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve. However, one touch-up session may be needed approximately every 6 months, depending on how your skin responds.
