Dr Lanzer has introduced the Venus Viva into his clinic. The Venus Viva is a safe skin rejuvenation method that utilises NanoFractional Radio Frequency technology to selectively heat the dermis and initiate collagen remodelling and fibroblast stimulation. Fractional treatments allow uniform, safe and relatively pain free treatments with little or no downtime. Both the face and body can benefit from this treatment. Radiofrequency works by precisely heating the dermis which creates an injury in the skin, the bodies healing response is to create more collagen which means it can be used to treat:
- Acne & other types of scarring
- Face and Neck skin tightening
- General rejuvenation
The facelift treatment can help to decrease visible pores for even skin texture, reduce signs of ageing for a more youthful look, even out textural irregularities for refined skin, reduce acne scars for a clearer complexion, reduce deep lines and folds for younger looking skin and tighten and firm the neck and décolleté areas.
3-4 facelift treatments of the Venus Viva are recommended which are performed at 4-6 week intervals. The number of treatments required will vary patient to patient and can be assessed in your consultation with Dr Lanzer and his staff.
General skin improvement can be seen within a matter of days but as collagen remodelling happens in the deeper layers of the skin total skin improvement including smoothing and tightening can take several months to occur. Gradual improvement can continue to occur for up to a year following a series of treatments.
There is minimal downtime with this treatment and minimal pain. A numbing cream is applied 30 mins before the treatment so that it is as comfortable as possible.
One session of the Venus Viva takes about an hour and a half from start to finish. Immediately following your treatment, you will be able to return to daily activities. Some patients will experience a mild sunburn sensation and redness post treatment, which will generally subside within 36 hours. We do recommend that you do not take part in any physical activities that day as it can make the skin feel very hot.

An increasingly large amount of patients now opt for Venus Viva procedures. After the treatment, we apply a camoflauge antiseptic cream to help disguise and redness, keep the area clean and to increase healing.

Post treatment is it important to protect your skin. Ensure you use a broad spectrum sunscreen (one that protects from UVA and UVB rays) and avoid any sun exposure for 48 hours following treatment. A Mineral makeup can be applied 24 hours after your treatment.
Between treatments, Dr Lanzer recommends that you use products with Vitamin A and Nicinimide to help stimulate the cells, hydrate the skin and repair damage caused by ageing and the UV rays.
Are there risks associated and if so what are they?
Venus Viva is a safe treatment however all treatments have a minor chance of an adverse reaction occurring including a small chance of scarring. There is also the possibility of pin point bleeding but this is not more long term. Pigmentation may occur in rare circumstances. Infection is rare but an outbreak of acne in those prone to this condition may occur especially following the first treatment. A temporary rash may occur when the more superficial wavelengths are utilised.
