Skin Resurfacing Viva™

Skin Resurfacing Viva™

Skin resurfacing is used to repair signs of skin damage from injury, acne, and other skin conditions. It treats visible pores, stretch marks, deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, pigmentation, rosacea, and uneven skin texture.

This treatment provides a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing. It works with small pins that safely deliver energy through the skin’s surface. This creates tiny wounds, which the body then works to heal naturally. This process is what repairs signs of damage seen on the surface of the skin, leaving it smoother and healthier-looking.

Sometimes this skin resurfacing treatment is called RF Microneedling however, not all RF Microneedling is created equal. Our Nanofractional technology produces superior results with less downtime than most other technologies on the market.

Viva™ Nanofractional RF treatments are safe for all skin types, and start at $250.00 per single treatment, depending on the area to be treated.

Information about packages and financing is available in clinic.

Each resurfacing session lasts 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. You will feel tiny pins on your skin followed by a little zap. The face will then feel warm, like a sunburn.

Skin resurfacing 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. This will be discussed with you at your complimentary consultation.

After the treatment, your skin will be red and feel warm, 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 water, for 24 hours. The warm feeling should go away within 24 hours.

Downtime for this treatment is usually only for 24 hours post-treatment (or up to 5 days for more aggressive treatments), unlike lasers or other treatments where recovery or downtime lasts up to 10 days. 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). After 24 hours, you may apply makeup and resume your regular skincare routine. You should apply sunscreen (at least SPF 30), make sure your hands are clean before touching your face.
