What is Venus Viva skin resurfacing?

Venus Viva skin resurfacing is a type of skin resurfacing device that uses radiofrequency technology. It is intended to improve the texture, tone and quality of the skin. This is an ideal treatment because instead of burning the skin like other lasers, it deeply heats it, decreasing healing time. Venus Viva is FDA-approved and fully customizable, so it is safe for all skin types.

How does Venus Viva skin resurfacing work?

Venus Viva works as an advanced radiofrequency microneedling procedure, essentially creating tiny wounds on the skin that the body repairs. Due to the incredibly small wounds, this treatment is more comfortable than traditional lasers and alternatives. It also causes an increase in collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.

How is the Venus Viva skin resurfacing performed?

The Venus Viva procedure is administered using a handheld device that emits radiofrequency energy. The device is used to heat the skin in the targeted areas, yielding effective results – often with less treatment sessions than other devices. The treatment is usually completed in less than 30 minutes.

Is Venus Viva skin resurfacing painful?

Some patients experience slight discomfort during their treatment, but the treatment is not painful. You may feel heat that resembles a sunburn. If you are concerned about any associated pain, a topical numbing cream can be applied upon request.

When will I see results?

Results from Venus Viva rely solely on how quickly the skin heals after treatment. Since many of the benefits appear after recovery, results may not be visible for a few weeks. However, results are designed to improve during the months following treatment, so you can expect to see more significant results over time. Our staff will provide you with clear instructions to follow after your procedure, as the first 24 hours after treatment are essential to recovery.

Can Venus Viva skin resurfacing be combined with other treatments?

Venus Viva is a carefully designed procedure that can be safely combined with other treatments to maximize results. During your initial consultation, your board-certified dermatologist can recommend additional laser treatments or procedures that can be combined with Venus Viva to give you the best results.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
