Venus Viva and Pore Size
Pore size is one of those funny things some of us fixate on. If you’ve ever had a history of acne breakouts or oily skin, you probably know what it’s like to stare into the mirror and the lament the existence of these tiny perceived flaws. While it’s true, some of us have larger pores than others, we ALL have pores and it’s usually not anything the rest of the world notices when we’re face to face. With that said, the Venus Viva is a great treatment option that can help tighten up the appearance or pores in addition to reducing acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and even improve pigmentation and redness.
The Venus Viva is Effective and Minimally Invasive!
Until recently, the treatments to target texture also involved quite a bit of recovery time and let’s face it no one really wants to use up their vacation days hiding in their house. Now with the Venus Viva we finally have an option that bridges the gap between non-ablative lasers, microneedling, and traditional laser resurfacing. The Venus Viva is a minimally invasive treatment that uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency with SmartScan technology to safely deliver heat to the superficial layers of the skin. Tiny pins are pressed against the skin while radiofrequency energy creates small wounds below the surface of the skin, deeper than microneedling can reach! The SmartScan technology allows for customizable treatments and is safe for all skin types. The combination of heat and controlled injuries activate the body’s natural ability to regenerate collagen while the radio frequency stimulates tissue tightening to improve skin texture and laxity. While the downtime is short, the healing and collagen response can occur for several months. Pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial acne scars are improved as well as the appearance of rosacea and pigmentation.
Ask around our clinic and the staff will surely tell you that Venus Viva is a personal favourite and something we often include as part of our own skin health regimens. We love the healthy glow and smoothened appearance it gives our skin! So if you’re ready to improve your skin health and target your texture, the Venus Viva is an ideal step in the right direction!
