As Hollywood is coming to the end of its celebrated Awards Season, I was asked to join the morning show on iHeartRadio CHUM FM to discuss how celebrities get red carpet ready. It’s always a pleasure to chat with Roger & Marilyn. On this particular segment I was there to discuss non-invasive treatments to help put your best self forward, including one of the newest procedures at The Plastic Surgery Clinic – Venus Viva Diamond Polar Treatments. So here’s the scoop on our latest new skin care technology.
Venus Viva is a new technology that helps to diminish signs of skin damage, including acne, stretch marks, rosacea, enlarged pores, deep wrinkles, uneven skin, dyschromia and other pigmentation. The new Venus Viva can be used on patients of any skin type and any skin colour.
So how is Venus Viva different? Venus Viva delivers Nano Fractional (high intensity) Radio Frequency, via tiny pins through the skin’s surface, creating micro dermal areas of collagen stimulation. This signals your body to activate your natural wound response, and accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue. Since the micro stimulated areas are so small, there is less down time for healing and less discomfort than traditional CO2 lasers, while still producing beautiful results.
At The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we work to enhance your Venus Viva treatment with the Diamond Polar applicator, which works to improve results by further diminishing lines and wrinkles. Using Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, the Diamond Polar applicator produces uniform heat under the skin’s surface. This process helps to naturally boost collagen and elastin fibers, to produce firmer, smoother skin, creating a plump and youthful appearance.
The Venus Viva treatment may give very mild discomfort, but is not painful. You will feel a sensation like tiny pins on the skin followed by a little zap, then your skin may feel warm, like a minor sunburn. For treatments in more sensitive areas, a topical numbing cream may be applied to reduce any discomfort.
Treatments may last from 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the size and location of the treatment area. Since every person has unique skin properties and conditions, the number of treatments to achieve the best results may vary. Downtime following treatment is minimal, with most patients returning to regular skin care and makeup routines after 24 hours. Venus Viva and Diamond Polar applicator treatments act to super-charge natural responses in the body. Therefore, the results take time to reach their full effect, but are long lasting and safe for all skin tones.
With any treatment it is important that your care is personalized to meet your personal needs. At The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we consult with each of our patients individually to ensure we are using the best combination of tools to create the most beautiful, natural results. After all, the best compliment you can often receive, is to hear you look fresh and well rested. Now that’s something to strive for!
