Microneedle Radiofrequency can be performed every 4 – 6 weeks.

How many sessions would I require?

There are 4 main variants of atrophic acne scars:

1. Ice pick scars: Small entry point with sharp steep edges; like an inverted triangle

2. Box car scars: Wider base, sharply demarcated edges; like a box

3. Rolling scars: Wide base, rounded edges

4. Hypertrophic scars : Raised scars.

Venus Viva Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing

venus viva acne removal treatment

The Venus Viva is the latest revolutionary Radiofrequency (RF) machine that utilises its Nanotechnology to effectively treat different scars with MINIMAL downtime as compared to the traditional CO2 or Erbium laser treatment.

Multiple columns of RF energy are emitted into the scars to break the scar tissue up AND stimulate new collagen.  This effectively evens out the scars and improves the texture of the scarred areas.Treatment is quick (about 30mins) and comfortable!

Some redness is to be expected but by the 3rd / 4th day, only a pinkish-redness will be seen.

A topical anaesthetic cream will first be applied to ensure comfort throughout the process. The Venus Viva RF probe will then be used to create micro-columns of heat within the layers of the skin. Some redness is expected but will subside, and once healed, the skin will have a more even and a smoother texture. Additionally, there is also a firming effect due to collagen remodelling.
