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, wrinkle reduction and tighten and firm the neck and décolleté areas. Three to four facelift treatments of the Venus Viva are recommended, which are performed at four to six-week intervals. The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient and can be assessed during 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.
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, suitable for an array of skin types and skin tones. Radiofrequency works by precisely heating the dermis, which creates an injury in the skin, the bodies healing response is to create more collagen. This means it can be used to treat skin conditions such as:
• Acne & other types of scarring
• Face and Neck skin tightening
• Deep wrinkles
• Fine Lines
• General rejuvenation
One session of the Venus Viva takes about an hour and a half from start to finish. Therefore, most patients can easily schedule in this time in their busy schedule. Considering the minimal downtime and side effects, some patients choose to have their treatment during the workweek. However, it is advised to have the treatment when you have some time off; this allows you to have some downtime when you do experience some side effects.
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 thirty-six 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.
Post-treatment is 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 forty-eight hours following treatment. Mineral makeup can be applied twenty-four hours after your treatment.
Between treatments, Dr Lanzer recommends that you use skincare products with Vitamin A and Niacinamide to help stimulate the cells, hydrate the skin and repair damage caused by ageing and UV rays.
There is minimal downtime with this treatment and minimal pain. A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area thirty minutes before the treatment so that it is as comfortable as possible.
The Dr Lanzer Clinic recommends incorporating some downtime after the treatment, no matter how minor the side effects may be. Each patient heals differently too, so some patients may recover faster than others.
Patients who had a treatment with the Venus Viva can obtain some aftercare tips and hints at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. When in doubt about your aftercare, you can also contact the helpful team at the clinic, who will be more than happy to provide you with advice.
An increasingly large amount of patients now opt for Venus concept and skin resurfacing treatments. After the procedure, we apply a camouflage antiseptic cream to help disguise and redness, keep the area clean and increase healing.

Venus Viva is a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing that improves signs of skin damage and helps the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, rosacea, pores, aging wrinkles, other scars and uneven skin texture and pigmentation.
The 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 pinpoint 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 more superficial wavelengths are utilised.
Prices are approximately $600 per treatment and 3 treatments are usually recommended with one month in between.
Some results will be seen after 1 week and optimal results can take up to 6 months to see.
