What is Nanofractional Skin Resurfacing?

Nanofractional skin resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment wherein laser and radiofrequency energy are used to improve overall skin texture. We perform nanofractional skin resurfacing using Venus Viva, an FDA-approved, cutting-edge device that uses nano-fractional radiofrequency technology to address your skin concerns. When administered correctly, the finely tipped pins on the device deliver radiofrequency energy to ablate the damaged skin tissues, paving the way for smoother, softer, and more youthful skin underneath.

How it Works

The Venus Viva laser device uses nano-fractional radiofrequency technology with finely-tipped pins to generate and deliver radiofrequency energy into the targeted areas of the skin. This treatment ablates the damaged skin tissues in a highly controlled manner, essentially removing the uppermost layers of the skin with the signs of sun damage, scars, and fine lines. Ablating the damaged skin layers paves the way for softer, smoother, and more youthful skin underneath. This treatment also facilitates collagen production to help you achieve smooth skin.

Your Nanofractional Skin Resurfacing Journey


Your medical provider calibrates the Venus Viva device according to your unique skin type and goals to ensure safe and optimal results. Your skin is cleansed before the treatment. The cosmetic provider moves the Venus Viva applicator on the targeted treatment areas on your skin to deliver highly calibrated nano-fractional radiofrequency energy into the skin’s surface. You might experience mild discomfort, sort of like a rubber band snap, but it’s tolerable. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.


Most patients need 3 to 4 treatments for optimal results, but your cosmetic provider will curate the ideal treatment plan and frequency according to your goals. The sessions are usually spaced a few weeks apart, according to the physician’s recommendations, and you may need maintenance treatments.


You may experience mild redness, swelling, discomfort, and irritation in the treatment areas after the procedure. Most of the side effects are minimal and temporary, and you can resume your daily activities and work within a day. However, you should avoid strenuous workouts, direct sunlight, and other skin treatments for a few days.
