How it works

Venus Viva is Advanced Technology to Remodel Your Skin

Venus Viva treats both the surface skin layer (epidermis) and deeper skin tissue (dermis), leaving you with maximum benefits and minimal discomfort. The treatment combines NanoFractional radiofrequency and SmartScan technology to remodel and resurface your skin. The handpiece delivers energy through the skin in a “stamping” technique (similar to the IPL), generating heat while stimulating fibroblasts and rebuilding collagen.

The Viva Diamond Polar is a special Venus Viva handpiece that uses radiofrequency and magnetic pulses, which stimulates the generation of new collagen and elastin fibres over time. Diamond Polar treatments are comfortable, and anesthetic is not required. This treatment is a skin tightening device, which can be used on its own or as a complement to Venus Viva.

Dr. Frame is fantastic at what he does and is also funny, sweet and kind. Nadine and all the staff are supportive and unbelievably kind.

The treatment experience

Planning Your Venus Viva Treatment

Your experience begins with a consultation with one of our expert staff. Together, we’ll create a treatment plan that best suits your needs. We review your concerns, expectations, skincare regimen, price estimates, and your relevant medical history during your session. This information helps ensure you get the results you’re looking for with realistic expectations. Skin treatments are 100% personalized and can vary in strength, the number of sessions, and the combination of treatments.

Our Process

Your Guide to the Venus Viva Treatment

Step 01

Before the Treatment

Do not use anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen, one week before or after treatments. The inflammation created by the Venus Viva and the Viva Diamond Polar is part of the process to stimulate new collagen.

Step 02

During the Treatment

A layer of numbing cream will be applied to the treated area. You’ll feel prickling and heat, similar to an elastic band snapping your skin. The strength of the procedure is customized, so the technician can adjust settings for your comfort.

Step 03

After the Treatment

You may notice redness and mild swelling of the treatment zone, which will subside within 12–24 hours. After 24–72 hours, you’ll see pinpoint crusts where the electrode pins contact your skin. These resolve naturally and can be covered with makeup.


What is the Cost of Venus Viva?

A Venus Viva treatment varies from $400 to $600, depending on the treatment zone. A single session of Venus Viva face begins at $600, with price increases correlated to the treatment zone. To ensure our treatments are as affordable as possible, we offer treatment packages, which maximize savings as treatment areas and sessions are purchased collectively.
