The Science of Rejuvenation
Duration: 1 - 2 hours
Age brings wisdom, but the years of experience come with a price. Our skin ages, and wrinkles form, making us look older than we feel just as we’re getting life figured out. It’s really not fair, is it? At MagnifaSkin, we can’t turn the clock back to your youth, but we can erase years from your face by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll look younger and you’ll get to keep your hard-earned wisdom.
How Venus Viva Works
Wrinkling of the skin as we age is largely due to the loss of collagen, the protein that gives skin its elasticity and firmness. (See our Injectables section for other causes and treatments). Non-Ablative laser treatments leave the surface tissues largely untouched, while inducing the underlying tissues to produce more collagen in response to the irritation caused by the laser. This new collagen strengthens the skin in the treated areas, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.
The procedure can usually be completed in less than 30 minutes, and you’ll be able to continue with your normal daily routine immediately after. In a minority of cases, there will be minor sunburn-like reactions, however these will heal on their own within a few days.
Venus Viva Treatment with the Aerolase LightPod Neo
All laser treatments at MagnifaSkin MedSpa are delivered with the revolutionary new Aerolase® LightPod Neo® medical laser. Delivering light pulses 30 – 50 times faster than other lasers, the Neo provides virtually pain free treatment. In fact many patients report feeling nothing at all other than a slight warming sensation. Other lasers, which deliver higher energy pulses of light at much longer intervals, result in the sensation of having a rubber band snapped against your skin. This is due to the large amount of energy being delivered with each pulse. Because the Neo reduces the amount of energy delivered with each pulse while greatly increasing the number of pulses, energy delivery is ‘smoothed out’, resulting in little or no sensation for your sensitive skin.
