The Viva is the most customizable skin resurfacing device available in the industry! Viva utilizes NanoFractional Radio Frequency with SmartScan technology. We are excited to offer this brand new NanoFractional Microneedling technology to resurface your appearance without having to puncture the skin.

The NanoFractional RF energy is delivered through tiny pins creating micro-dermal wounds in the epidermis, to the dermis, initialing collagen and fibroblast stimulation and tissue remodeling. The process works to remold skin from the inside out, repairing signs of damage that are visible on the surface, such as scars from acne or injury, deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, and pigmentation.

How it works

This non-surgical mild skin resurfacing works to improve the overall texture of your skin with minimal downtime. Treatments offer quick results and long lasting improvement of fine line and wrinkles, large pores, skin laxity, and pigmentation irregularities, while smoothing acne scars and stretch marks. Since the wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional CO2 lasers, while still producing incredibly visible results.

Viva is "color blind" meaning it can be used on any and all skin types and areas (except eye lids and lips) to be treated. This makes treatments available to all!

Viva treatments are most effective when done as a series, with at least 3 treatments being completed 4 week apart. You will continue to see your improvements develop, becoming more and more noticeable 2-6 months after your series is completed. This series of treatments can also be combined with other treatments including Venus Freeze and Venus IPL to further enhance the effects of the Viva, if desired.

  • Fade Scars
  • Reduce Rosacea

What Is it?

New (2017) advanced NanoFractional Microneedling technology beautifully resurfaces your appearance, from the inside, without having to puncture the skin treats texture, pigmentation, and laxity.

Building on its Venus Legacy technology, the Venus Viva is a quantum leap forward as a radically advanced next generation in non-invasive cosmetic technology. Treatments will not affect your botox or fillers before or after. (Many find the combination far more natural and superior to surgery.)

How Does It Work?

Viva™ NanoFractional Microneedling treatments use tiny pins to remold your skin tissue, safely delivering heat without actually puncturing your skin. The Radio Frequency (RF) technology creates very small microdermal wounds so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional CO2 lasers, while still producing incredibly visible results.

A numbing gel is applied to your face 30 minutes in advance. Your SLU technician places the applicator on your skin (face/throat/decolletage) for a second where it administers its electronic stimulus, and moves it adjacently continuously until the face (and/or throat or dedolo has been covered).

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

After the preliminary numbing, about 60 minutes per treatment. Initially, we suggest one treatment monthly for 4 months. Thereafter, 2-4x/year for maintenance.

What Happens After Treatment?

Depending on your skin type, redness like a moderate sunburn will last for one to three days. 7-10 days of natural exfoliation.

How Do You Prepare?


How Long Will The Results Last?

Expect noticeable results in two weeks which continues to build for several months and is accelerated with subsequent treatments.

Any Precautions?

Safe for all skin types. Viva should be performed by a certified technician with a minimum 3 years' clinical experience. (SLU techs have 20+ years combined experience and are certified by the manufacturer.)

Will There Be Any Pain?

Venus Viva delivers an electronic pulse, which feels like a small heat wand against your skin. Your technician will adjust the settings to ensure your comfort while achieving your rejuvenation goals.
