Viva RF (radiofrequency) Skin Resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that uses advanced technology to treat a variety of common skin issues, such as:
RF Skin Resurfacing treatment stimulates healing processes in your skin and accelerates the growth of new and healthy tissue.
It uses tiny pins from a microneedling device that pierce the skin slightly to infuse restorative radiofrequency energies into the skin. The puncture marks are minuscule and you might only feel mild discomfort akin to a burning sensation during treatment.
The microneedling device sends nanofractional radio frequencies into the skin’s deeper layers, and the resulting heat stimulates the growth of skin repairing proteins.
With RF Skin Resurfacing treatments, your downtime is significantly lesser compared to traditional ablative laser resurfacing alternatives.
You will feel tiny pins pressed againstyour skin, followed by a little zap. After the zap, you will feel strong heat for a short while, like a mild sunburn. There will be some redness and possibly mild swelling which will all subside in a matter of days.
For people who need more aggressive treatments, we may apply a topical numbing cream to further reduce discomfort.
The procedure normally lasts between 20 to 45 minutes.
It depends on the size and location of the targeted area, and whether we need to apply anesthetic for you.
Some patients get satisfactory results with 3 to 4 treatments, while others need more sessions to get their ideal results.
It depends on your skin condition and how far you want to go.
You will experience some redness in your skin and there may be some mild swelling and discomfort immediately after treatment. All of this should subside in 24 hours.
If you are going for more aggressive treatments, you may also experience some flaking of the affected skin areas. This will subside within 5 days.

In all cases, avoid the following activities for at least 24 hours after treatment:
You can resume your regular skin care and makeup routine after 24 hours.
As long as you are still showing signs of healing (e.g. redness, swelling, flaking), you should completely avoid sun exposure.
Yes, this procedure is considered safe for most patients. Before we proceed with treatments, we will conduct an assessment of your skin to ascertain its suitability. Consultations are free for first-time customers!
RF Skin Resurfacing uses advanced radio frequency technology which is widely used in the medical field. However, do note the following exceptions:
