Venus Viva skin resurfacing treatments work with tiny pins that safely deliver heat (via Nano Fractional Radio Frequency) through the skin’s surface. This creates tiny micro-dermal wounds, which the body then works to heal naturally. This process repairs signs of skin damage seen on the surface of the skin. Since the wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional CO lasers and produces satisfying results.
When you come in for your Viva treatment expect to relax in one of our comfortable rooms for an hour to allow our topical numbing agent to fully activate. You may have a comfortable treatment by having access to our wifi or napping in one of our plush beds. When it is time for your treatment your technician will escort you to the treatment room, expect to spend 45 minutes to an hour to complete your procedure. Your technician will apply a medical barrier to the treated area before your departure.
You will experience redness, scabs and dryness over the area that was treated. It is mandatory to have 24 hours of no activity. You must avoid makeup and heat for the first 24 hours. This is so vital to your recovery. Remember our Venus Viva treatment is a skin resurfacing treatment which leaves you with microscopic open wounds for the first 24 hours. Please be generous with moisturizer for the 3-5 days following the treatments. You can get back to moderate activity after you complete your first 24 hours. After Day 5 you can get back to all your normal activities.

Pre- and Post- care instructions
Prior to the Microneedling session, please observe the following:
•No Retin-A products or applications 24 hours prior to your treatment.
• No prolonged sun exposure to the face 24 hours prior to your treatment. A microneedling treatment
will not be administered on sunburned skin.
•If you are taking a blood thinner, aspirin or any other medication that you have the propensity to bleed
easily while on, please tell your technician.
•If you have received Botox, make sure that you give yourself at least 2 weeks post Botox injections
before receiving your Microneedling procedure.

Microneedling cannot be performed on areas with active acne or open lesions.
•Wait 6 months following oral isotretinoin use (Accutane).
After your treatment, please be aware and observe the following:
Immediately after your treatment, you will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and
your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. You may also notice some slight swelling; both are
normal and should subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally diminish within the same day or 24
hours. You may see slight redness after 24 hours but only in minimal areas or spots.
After-care instructions for Microneedling Treatment:
• Use tepid water for the initial 24 hours to rinse the treated area. After 24 hours, use a gentle cleanser
to cleanse the face for the following 72 hours and gently dry the treated skin. Always make sure that
your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
• It is recommended to purchase the Epionce Essential Recovery Kit to care for the skin after treatment.
• It is recommended that makeup or sunscreen should not be applied for 24 hours after the procedure.
Do not apply any makeup with a makeup brush, especially if it is not clean.
• After the initial 24 hours, apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 for two
weeks. A chemical-free sunscreen is highly recommended.
