Skin Resurfacing Q&A

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is a quick, nonsurgical technology to enhance your skin's smoothness, tone, and overall appearance. Chicque Aesthetics provides Venus Viva skin resurfacing treatments. 

This therapy uses minute pins that penetrate your skin, safely sending therapeutic nanofractional radiofrequency (RF) heat below the surface of your skin. 

The microneedles create countless mini-wounds. These microinjuries stimulate a natural repair process deep in your skin. Your skin responds by forming a new, strong collagen support network and new skin cells. 

In time, this process of regeneration reveals a smoother skin texture while minimizing imperfections such as dark spots and scars. 

What skin conditions does skin resurfacing treat?

Skin resurfacing addresses common skin problems like:

  • Fine wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Irregular pigment
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Lax skin
  • Brown spots 

Unlike some skin care technologies, skin resurfacing is safe for all skin tones.

What happens during skin resurfacing?

Your provider at Chicque Aesthetics begins by applying a topical numbing agent to promote your comfort. They use a handheld applicator that delivers bursts of RF energy to your treatment area. Treatments are brief, typically taking just 15-20 minutes.

Does skin resurfacing hurt?

As your provider moves the handpiece over your skin, you feel a slight warmth and sensations like pinpricks. The numbing cream helps keep any discomfort to a minimum.

Because Venus Viva makes such tiny wounds, the therapy is much more comfortable than ablative CO2 lasers that can be quite painful. Venus Viva procedures are also brief, so any discomfort is over in a flash. The majority of patients manage the treatment very well.

How many skin resurfacing treatments do I need?

Most patients receive 3-4 treatments per area. The exact number of treatments depends on the area being treated and the condition of your skin. The team at Chicque Aesthetics advises you of the optimal number of sessions to achieve your desired results. 

Generally, they recommend staggering treatments four weeks apart to give your skin time to heal and build new collagen networks.

If you're ready to reveal healthy, clearer skin without surgery or a painful, prolonged recovery, consider the therapeutic power of skin resurfacing. Call Chicque Aesthetics to book your consultation today.
