Viva Fractional RF Treatment

If you have acne scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, skin discoloration issues or rosacea, a Viva Fractional RF treatment can help improve your symptoms. A Viva Fractional RF treatment is a safe and effective alternative to ablative fractional laser resurfacing techniques, and it allows patients to have a much more comfortable procedure while still providing them with substantial and long-lasting improvements to the skin. In addition, a Viva Fractional RF treatment, which you can have at Spa Sydell, has a speedy recovery and also takes very little time to perform so it won’t interfere with your active lifestyle.

How does a Viva Fractional RF treatment work?

Using NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) with SmartScan™ technology, Venus Viva™ MD is a fractional resurfacing system that uses tiny pins which penetrate only the top-most portion of the skin yet deliver and disperse radiofrequency heat safely to the underlying skin layers. The resulting tiny wounds and heating of the deeper skin layers initiate the body’s natural healing process and the production of additional collagen and elastin. These small wounds heal quickly, and the resultant healing response helps repair visible skin damage. A Viva Fractional RF treatment has the added benefit of being much more comfortable than fractional laser resurfacing alternatives, and it is safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. Clients who have a Viva Fractional RF treatment can also expect visible and long-lasting results.

What conditions does Viva Fractional RF treat?

A Viva Fractional RF treatment can improve many conditions which adversely affect the tightness, texture and tone of the skin and leave the skin looking more youthful, refreshed and rejuvenated.

A Viva Fractional RF treatment can improve:

  • Acne and other types of scarring
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea
  • Stretch marks
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Uneven skin texture

Am I a candidate for a Viva Fractional RF treatment?

If you have signs of skin damage, deep wrinkles, scarring, large, visible pores, stretch marks or imperfections in your skin’s texture, you are likely a good candidate for a Viva Fractional RF treatment.

Contraindications for a Viva Fractional RF treatment include:

  • An Internal defibrillator or pacemaker
  • Active infections in the treatment area
  • Cancer or history of cancer
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Current use of blood thinners
  • Current use of anti-inflammatories
  • Tattoos or permanent makeup
  • Excessively tanned skin

What can I expect during my Viva Fractional RF treatment session?

During your treatment, you will feel small pinpricks on your skin followed by tiny zapping sensations. Your skin will feel warm, and you may feel slightly uncomfortable, but patients usually do not experience any pain. For more intensive treatments, your medical provider may apply a topical anesthetic. Afterward, your face will look red and feel warm, as if you have a sunburn. A single Viva Fractional RF session typically lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.

Viva Fractional RF Treatment Questions


You will have little downtime after your Viva Fractional RF treatment. Most patients require only 24 hours of recovery before resuming their usual activities. However, if you have a more aggressive treatment, you may need more time to recover. It is important that you do not get your skin wet or apply anything to your skin for the first 24 hours, and this includes avoiding activities that will make you perspire. After 24 hours, you may resume your usual skincare routine, and sunscreen is highly recommended. Patients should continue to avoid heavy perspiration or hot baths for up to two days.


For most patients, results usually begin to develop in the weeks after your treatment. During this time, your body continues to produce collagen and elastin which rejuvenates the skin. You will continue to see improvements after your final treatment.


You may need three or four Viva Fractional RF treatments to obtain optimal results. Your initial skin condition will determine how many sessions you will need. Your full results can last as long as six months. Afterward, you will need to have regularly scheduled follow-up treatments to maintain your look.
