Essex Medspa is now offering the Venus Viva treatment for skin tightening and improvement in skin tone and texture. In addition, the Venus Viva effectively treats acne scars, large pores and stretch marks. This fully customizable treatment uses micro-needling with fractional radiofrequency to create thermal stimulation of the skin and deeper tissues. This treatment allows for quick rejuvenation with minimal healing time. It is safe for all skin types. Treatment can be performed in as short as 20 minutes. Exercise can be resumed and makeup can be applied to the skin within 24 hours after treatment. While this treatment is a great alternative to fractional CO2 laser due to the minimal downtime, it can also be used to enhance and further stimulate the skin’s response to CO2 laser.
