Remember when you were a tween and wanted nothing more than to be 16 or 18? And then, when you hit 16, you wanted to be 21?

Then, somewhere around 30, it all turned around. Suddenly, you’re thrilled if you’re asked for ID and you know you’ve really grown up. But, it’s also around then you might have started to notice even the faintest signs of aging, isn’t it?

Now, you can turn back the years thanks to Venus Viva.

What Exactly is Venus Viva?

Venus Viva uses state-of-the-art technology to resurface your skin with minimal discomfort. Treatments take just 30 minutes and most people require 3 to 4 treatments over a period of months. While most people feel just slight discomfort during the treatment, a topical anesthetic can help eliminate discomfort.

Best of all, Venus Viva’s non-invasive nature means there is hardly any recovery time. You might have a little redness and a mild sunburn sensation right after treatment, this will subsides in a couple of hours.

Venus Viva Can Treat Multiple Skin Issues

If you’ve been looking for a non-invasive way to turn back the clock and improve the texture of your skin, or you want to get rid of visible stretch marks, Venus Viva may be your answer.

The non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment aims to improve the overall texture of your skin. During treatment, SmartScan and NanoFractional Radio Frequency are combined to treat and repair damage to the skin.

Just one treatment can significantly reduce signs of:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Scars
  • UV damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea

Venus Viva is a highly innovative treatment that can improve an array of conditions that affect your skin’s texture. That’s because this treatment can cover a much larger surface area, treating multiple issues in one session so you walk out feeling, and looking, rejuvenated.

Safe, Effective Treatment

Venus Viva is safe. It’s common for radiofrequency energy to be used in medical procedures and it’s been thoroughly evaluated in a multitude of clinical studies. Before you have treatment, your medical history will be reviewed to determine if you’re in good general health before undergoing the procedure.

Long-Lasting Results to Defy Time

After treatment, your body will begin to produce new collagen and that’s when you’ll start to notice results. The great news is that the results are long-lasting. Take note, though, that while Venus Viva can certainly turn back the years, your natural aging process will continue, so you might require periodic maintenance treatments to keep your skin looking soft, firm, and renewed.

Just after your treatment, you may experience light swelling and moderate redness. But this will stop after a couple of hours to a day. You’ll receive products at your treatment to help keep your skin moisturized. This helps the healing process.

As the treatment area continues to heal, you might be a little itchy. An over-the-counter allergy pill can alleviate the itch. It’s important not to itch, pick, or scratch at the site.

Around 24 – 72 hours after treatment, small crusts will begin to form where the electrode pins made contact with your skin. You may cover them with makeup until they naturally shed.

Your Venus Viva results will continue to develop over the next few months. Each session you have will further reduce signs of wrinkles, large pores, scarring, and textural irregularities.

Instant Results for a Youthful You

Those who have undergone Venus Viva sessions report instant results. You can get straight back to your everyday activities, too. Just be careful to look after the treated area and protect it from mechanical and thermal damage as the skin heals.

You’ll also need to avoid hot baths and massages and keep the area clean to prevent infections. Be sure to use a high SPF sunscreen, too, and ideally avoid sun exposure which can have an adverse effect on your youthful results.

Age spots

Did you spend LOTS of time in the sun during your younger days? Have brown spots recently popped up on your hands or face? From around the age of 40 and up, your skin becomes less capable of dealing with sun exposure and expands with extra pigment as a result. These “age” spots, which look like large freckles, are also known as sun spots or liver spots and are completely harmless. While age spots are benign, they can be unsightly. Treatments for age spots range from home remedies to procedures at skin clinics. Here are five treatments worth checking out.

  1. Laser Therapy: Backed by science and research, laser treatment eliminates melanin-producing cells without damaging your skin. While laser treatment can require multiple sessions, it is minimally invasive and fades age spots over the course of a few weeks. Sun protection is highly recommended following a laser procedure.
  2. Chemical Peel: Exfoliation to the next level. This technique uses a solution to improve the look of your skin so it looks and feels new and healthy. While more than one treatment may be recommended, your new skin will be smoother and undamaged by the sun. Sun protection is necessary following a chemical peel.
  3. Medication: Prescription bleaching cream (hydroquinone) is often used to fade age spots over several weeks or months. Sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is strongly advised if you use medication treatments, along with the application of 4% zinc oxide.
  4. Micro-Dermabrasion: This treatment exfoliates your skin with aluminum oxide crystals for an immediate softer and smoother effect. Akin to controlled sandblasting, the crystals remove your dead skin and stimulates your skin to produce new, healthier skin cells.
  5. BroadBand Light (BBL): BBL gently heats up your skin to stimulate the growth of new, smoother skin cells. Safe and non-invasive, BBL’s photothermal energy also removes unwanted melanin responsible for extra pigment. Typical BBL treatment ranges from 2-5 procedures at 4-8 week intervals.

Try any of these treatments to get rid of those pesky age spots and enjoy healthy, younger looking skin.
