Fractional RF Skin Resurfacing - Adelaide

Do you suffer from lines or wrinkles, acne scars or sun damage? Venus Viva can greatly improve the appearance of damaged skin.  This procedure uses the latest RF fractional ablative technology. All treatments are performed by  our highly trained and certified staff. Skin resurfacing is a quick and effective way of repairing damaged skin. It will leave you feeling fresh-faced, and feeling rejuvenated.

What is a Venus Viva MD Skin Resurfacing?

Venus Viva™ is a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing. It corrects signs of skin damage and improves the appearance of acne scars and other scars, rosacea, enlarged pores, deep wrinkles, and uneven skin texture and pigmentation.

Advanced Cosmetic Medicine recommends Venus Viva MD for those that are seeking a more natural approach to skin rejuvenation.

How Does Venus Viva Compare With Other Technologies?

When it comes to skin resurfacing, CO2 lasers used to be the gold standard. These procedures also came with a lot of pain and downtime that could last for  several weeks or even longer (since they essentially remove the top layer of your skin). Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments, on the other hand, deliver the same results, just with significantly less pain and much less downtime. Unlike lasers, which only work on fair complexions, Venus Viva™ treatments are safe to be used on all skin tones. You’ll also notice superior results than with  treatments like chemical peels which known to cause many complications.


What Are The Advantages of Venus Viva Skin Resurfacing?

  • Fast treatment time
  •  Minimal downtime. You may experience a few days of redness. Many clients return to work the next day.
  • Minimal pain during and after the procudure.
  • Even after one treatment you may see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of acne scars and the texture of the skin.

How Does Venus Viva Work?

Venus Viva is safe and effective on all skin types.  RF energy penetrates the skin in tiny columns, causing ablation and coagulation. Stimulation of fibroblasts promotes the synthesis of new collagen. This creates a more tighter and compact skin matrix. The ablated zones then heal and are fillers with new cells generated from the stem cells located in the healthy surrounding tissue. Fractional Skin Resurfacing allows the skin to heal much faster than if the whole area was treated. Venus Viva works to create a smoothing and tightening effect at the epidermis and a plumping effect at the dermis level of the skin.

Venus Viva can be used to treat;

  • Skin laxity
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Rhytydes
  • Skin texture
  • Acne scars and other types of scars
  • Melasma
  • Striae

  • Non surgical blepharoplasty

What to Expect During a Venus Viva Treatment?

Upon arrival you will be greeted by our friendly staff and asked to complete our consent form for the procedure.

Dr Targett will then perform a consultation with you to determine your medical history and suitability for the treatment. Dr Targett will establish what you aesthetic goals are and explain how the treatment and other treatments may help you to reach those goals.

Before the treatment begins Dr targett will explain what the treatment involves and obtain your informed consent.

Before the treatment begins a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the treatment area.  This usually takes around twenty minutes to take effect.

 We will then use a special applicator hand piece to deliver the radio frequency (RF) bursts to the treatment area. The procedure takes about fifteen to twenty minutes, depending on the total area treated. You’ll feel a slight warmth and pinprick sensations. Due to the topical anaesthesia the pain should be very minimal.

Before and After


Venus Viva is suitable for anyone that has surface skin irregularities.  It may even out pigment irregularities caused by sun damage.  Venus Viva is for anyone that desires smoothing and tightening of their skin.


Please do not apply any lotions, creams, perfumes, powder, or makeup on the day of your appointment.  If you have any skin conditions on the area to be treated, please let us know so that we may advise you on how to proceed.

The number of sessions needed for optimal results will depend on each individual. Typically from three to four sessions every four to six weeks is recommended.
