Viva Laser 101: What You Need to Know

Laser Treatments in Atlanta, GAThose struggling with the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, rosacea scarring, and even uneven skin texture may look to medical spa treatments. And, with the introduction of a new medical spa service, Viva™ laser treatments, people can now get the results they want without the downtime of microdermabrasion or chemical peels.

 

What are Viva™ Laser Treatments?

Most medical spa treatments aimed to reduce the appearance of scarring from acne, stretch marks, and more have been getting results with CO2 lasers for years. But, with the weeks of downtime and discomfort these treatments inevitably offer, many have yearned for an alternative. Fortunately, with Viva™ laser Treatments, people can now get the results they want without the cons of other laser treatments. Basically, the treatment works by using an application which quickly punctures the affected skin with small needles. But, because the application can pinpoint exact areas and the needles are so tiny, both pain and recovery are minimal to none. Overall, the treatments work by eliminating scarred skin and stimulating the body’s own healing power to regrow new, healthy skin cells.

 

What’s to Expect with Viva™ Treatment Sessions

 

Most Viva™ laser treatments last 15 to 30 minutes. While some patients experience immediate results, most patients elect to have 3 to 4 treatments. And, may get touch up treatments every 6 months. As far as pain, patients can expect the feeling of a small stinging followed by some heat on the treated area. Afterward, while skin may be sensitive to the touch, much like after a sunburn, discomfort usually doesn’t last longer than 24 hours.

 

Are you Qualified for Viva™ Laser Treatments?

 

Unfortunately, most skin resurfacing treatments don’t work well with darker skin tones, But, because Viva™ laser treatments use a different method to stimulating skin cell regrowth, they work on all skin types and tones. So, more people may be qualified for these treatments than microdermabrasion or chemical peels. However, there are some things that can disqualify an individual for Viva™ laser treatments. And, Dr. Brothers can help determine if this type of skin treatment is right for you.
