Micro-Needling with Radio Frequency (RF) Micro-needling

Unleash your skin’s natural radiance with our new Venus Viva.  The Viva uses nano-fractional radio frequency technology to deeply warm the skin and produce areas of fractional ablation and coagulation.  Through heat, ablation and coagulation the Viva stimulates collagen to improve the appearance of not only fine lines and wrinkles but also of skin texture and pores.  Powerful, Viva diminishes* deep and superficial pigment.  Viva’s skin renewal leads to smoothing of acne scars and stretch marks.  Suffer from rosacea?  Viva calms the skin.  We at Del Luz Medical Aesthetics have the latest FDA approved technology to rewind time.

What is RF micro-needling Venus Viva?

RF micro-needling creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Venus Viva enhances the overall quality of the skin by combining Nano-Fractional Radio Frequency™ (RF) and the SmartScan™ technology to penetrate the skin deeper and treat multiple areas in the same session. 

How does RF micro-needling work?

The Venus Viva device delivers high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted tissue once the needles have broken through the skin. This gives a uniform warming effect to the deep tissue, which helps to stimulate new collagen fibers to grow, leading to significant improvement to skin quality and texture. It is designed to improve the 3 T’s of your face and neck skin – texture, tone, and tightness.

Benefits of RF micro-needling

RF micro-needling helps with fine lines, enlarged pores, wrinkles, acne scars, skin tightening and stretch marks.  Venus Viva encourages collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths in the skin. The result is a little to no downtime, and a procedure that can greatly improve wrinkling, scars, and skin laxity.

What is the downtime?  

One of the great things about micro-needling is the “minimal” down time involved. Immediately following the treatment, your skin will have a red or rosy tone to it. The redness will diminish within the first 24-48 hours. 48 hours after the treatment, you can apply makeup to cover any residual redness that remains. While your skin will feel dry, days 3-5 are when most experience a slight “flaking” of their skin. Any flaking can be relieved with moisturizer.

How long before I can wear makeup or sunscreen?

You need to wait at least 48 to 72 hours before any makeup products.  Sunscreen can be applied to the skin after the first 48 hours.  This temporary ban on makeup even applies to a tinted moisturizers or tinted sunscreens. While your skin must remain hydrated after your treatment, it’s not advisable to use any products made from pigmented minerals for the sake of not irritating your skin. 

When will I see results?  

Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after a treatment as collagen production continues.

How many treatments will I need?  

It is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 4 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart for optimal results.  For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6 or more treatments. It is also recommended to do a treatment once per year to maintain results.

RF Micro-needling and acne scarring

All scars, including acne scars, are tough patches of thick and damaged skin. RF Micro-needling is more able than traditional micro-needling in addressing scars as the added RF energy breaks up scar matter better than just needle punctures alone. Venus Viva can focus higher levels of RF energy on scarred skin to maximize results.

RF micro-needling vs. micro-needling.  

RF micro needling adds radio frequency (RF) energy to the traditional micro-needling technique in order to further stimulate the creation of growth factors. RF micro-needling uses specialized “energized” needles to create micro-punctures along the skin and deliver radio frequency energy through these punctures simultaneously. The addition of radio frequency energy deep into the dermis amplifies the production of skin improving proteins and enzymes like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid than traditional micro-needling alone. Adding RF energy also heats under layers of the skin which further enhances skin tightening.
