The best foundation you can wear is your glowing, healthy skin.

Venus Viva™ micro-needling can help shrink your pores and minimize acne scars with minimal downtime.

About Venus Viva™

Point to your large pores and uneven texture and our experts will spend a little extra time working to reach your end goal. As a fully customizable and color blind treatment, the Venus Viva™ is one of our most popular skin smoothing treatments at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre.

We offer the Venus Viva™ as a minimally invasive treatment to address texture, tone and minor skin tightening concerns. The Venus Viva™ uses NanoFractional™ RF technology for superficial resurfacing and collagen remodelling.

We have been specializing in non-surgical facial rejuvenation since 1996 and are pleased to offer this treatment to address enlarged pores, uneven skin texture and other signs of aging skin with little downtime. This treatment can be safely provided anytime of the year, on any skin type.


  • Safe for all skin types
  • Reduction in visible pores
  • Improved fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother texture and more even skin tone
  • Ideal for the face and neck

How It Works

Venus Viva™ treatments combine NanoFractional™ Radio-frequency with SmartScan™ technology to safely deliver heat to the superficial layers of the skin (epidermis) and the deep tissue (dermis) without causing any harm to the surrounding tissue.

This controlled injury activates the body’s ability to naturally rebuild and regenerate collagen. As a result, imperfections such as wrinkles are smoothed out while discolouration is reduced for a more even skin tone. Venus Viva™ is also an effective acne scar treatment that may require less downtime than laser skin resurfacing for our Vancouver patients.

How many Venus Viva™ Treatments will I need? 

It is recommended to have a minimum of 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart for the most effective results. Maintenance treatments can be repeated as often as desired.

Is the Venus Viva™ treatment painful? 

As with any treatment at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre, a variety of comfort measures are available. Numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable experience.

What will my skin look like after the treatment? 

Your skin will probably be red and feel warm like a sunburn. This feeling should subside over the next 24 hours with possible residual redness that can last for up to 7 days. You may feel a sandpaper like texture on the skin and there is a possibility that your face will show a grid like stamping effect, this will naturally slough off over the next 7 days.

Do I need to do anything after my treatment? 

As a rule of thumb after any treatment in our clinic you must wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Cleanse with a gentle cleanser (we recommend ZO Gentle Cleanser). If you have flaking or peeling do not pick or exfoliate and avoid the use of products containing retinol or acid for at least 5 days.
