Venus Viva nano fractional radiofrequency; Acne scarring treatment

One of the biggest challenges in treating patients with darker skin color and acne scarring is the possibility of blotchy skin after the treatment. This is called post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. Basically patients with an olive skin complexion (Asian, Hispanic, Ethnic skin) can develop blotchy skin and discoloration after laser treatment.

I often per-treat my patient's skin with a fading lotion (hydroquinone cream) and Retin A 1-2 weeks prior to aggressive laser treatment. Another more recent advance has been the introduction of venus Viva nono-fractional radiofrequency treatment. This incredible device is "color blind" and is ideal for the treatment of acne scarring in darker skin colors. Another advantage is that skin heals in 2-3 days (rather than the 5-10 days it takes for aggressive Mixto CO2 lasers).

I often combine the procedure with Subcision, dermal fillers such as Bellafill and Sculptra, and even laser resurfacing. Please read out this on our Acne site
