Venus Viva


Venus Viva skin resurfacing

Venus Viva is a non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment that delivers smoother skin without any downtime.

The treatment improves the appearance of skin imperfections such as scars, stretch marks, rosacea, enlarged pores, wrinkles, uneven skin texture and pigmentation.

Using NanoFractional Radio Frequency, the Venus Viva applicator (covered in tiny pins) creates tiny micro-dermal wounds deep below the skin’s surface. The body’s natural healing process then gradually repairs the wounds and any imperfections on the skin’s surface.

The treatment can be enhanced with Venus Viva DiamondPolar applicator that uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce uniform heat under the skin’s surface. This naturally stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibres to further diminish lines and wrinkles.


The treatment is ideal for anyone who wants to reduce signs of skin damage, including deep wrinkles, scars, visible pores, stretch marks, without undergoing a CO2 laser treatment, which used to be considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in skin resurfacing. 

Unlike CO2 laser treatments which are painful and have a lengthy recovery period, Venus Viva treatments don’t damage the skin’s surface or the skin tissue surrounding the micro-wounds they create. Therefore, the Venus Viva treatments are much more comfortable and the skin heals much faster while still producing similar visible results. 


During a Venus Viva skin resurfacing treatment, the treatment provider will gently move the NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) applicator over your targeted skin area.

You will feel tiny pins on your skin followed by little zaps as the treatment provider moves the applicator over the targeted area. After each zap you face will feel very warm.

If the treatment feels very uncomfortable your treatment provider can adjust the settings or pace to suit you.

Your treatment provider may then enhance your treatment by massaging the DiamondPolar applicator over your targeted area. This will feel warm but comfortable.
