Novuskin, Las Vegas’ premiere membership MedSpa offers Skin Resurfacing, a popular method of refreshing and revitalizing the skin. Novuskin uses 2 procedures for skin resurfacing: Venus Viva NanoFractional Radio Frequency resurfacing and laser resurfacing using the Ydun Frax Laser with a 1550 nm wavelength.

Venus Viva incorporates the benefits of fractional microneedling using 160 nano needles (micro-pins) to deliver extremely precise currents of energy to the skin. During the minimally-invasive therapy, a specialized device is placed over the skin, creating tiny punctures that stimulate the skin’s healing process, resulting in an increase in the production of collagen and elastin. As the skin heals, new, collagen-rich cells are formed. This new tissue replaces the aged, blemished, or scarred skin, leaving smoother, firmed, toned, and healthy skin in its place. 

The Frax (or fractional) Laser is non-ablative: instead of destroying the surface of the skin, it aims to heat only a fraction of the skin — the deepest layers of the dermis — so you have less surface redness, burning, and peeling. That means less downtime with far less pain during the procedure than with ablative lasers. With Frax Laser therapy, your uneven skin will benefit from new collagen and elastin fibre growth to help fade redness, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, while subtly diminishing fine lines. 

Novuskin’s state-of-the-art center offers you two of the most effective and affordable procedures for skin resurfacing in Las Vegas.

The skin of your dreams, with laser skin resurfacing

Skin Resurfacing Machine

Non-Ablative Frax Laser

Novuskin’s Frax laser is one of the most minimally-invasive resurfacing treatments available. This non-ablative fractional laser procedure is used to rejuvenate the dermis and resurface the outer layer of the skin. This FDA-approved laser is non-ablative, meaning it won’t destroy the surface of the skin. Instead, this fractional laser heats only the deepest layers of the skin, creating a safe thermal injury that causes the body to initiate a cascade of healing.

Exceptional customization allows the technician to expertly adjust the parameters of the laser system using an advanced software algorithm. The pulse duration and energy settings can be adjusted precisely for each skin type and treatment goal. Frax is safe and effective for up to a Fitzpatrick Skin Type V, meaning this laser resurfacing is safe for dark brown-toned skin, but is not safe for black skin, due to the possibility that it may damage the melanin and cause light spots in the skin.

Venus Viva

Venus Viva is an FDA-approved medical device manufactured by Venus Concept, 2019. Venus Viva NanoFractional Radio Frequency with SmartScan Technology is safe for all skin tones, including dark or black skin.

The Venus Viva™ MD is cleared by the FDA, licensed by Health Canada and has CE Mark for the use in dermatological procedures requiring ablation and resurfacing of the skin using the Viva™/Viva™ MD applicator, the non-invasive treatment, reduction in the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, and rhytides for females in Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV with the DiamondPolar™ applicator.

Venus Viva™ MD is widely regarded as the most innovative and effective apparatus for Skin Resurfacing and is highly recommended by the world’s best dermatologists and skincare experts.

Technologies Used

Frax Laser
Non-Ablative Fractional Laser – Allows for more precisely targeted heating of the dermis using 1550 mn wavelengths.
Venus Viva
Nano-Fractional Radio Frequency – Delivers thermal energy to the subcutaneous tissue to increase collagen production and cell regeneration.
Micro-Pins
160 nano needles create micro-injuries in the skin to encourage healing and vital protein regeneration.
SmartScan
Allows the technician precise control of ablation and coagulation of the tissue, resulting in more effective skin resurfacing.

Skin Resurfacing Treatment

Laser skin resurfacing treatments using our Frax Laser or Venus Viva are both excellent options for intense skin resurfacing. Frax uses a non-ablative, fractional laser to deliver energy in the form of heat to very specific areas of the skin. The minimally-invasive laser helps stimulate collagen production underneath scars and stretch marks to lessen their appearance and heal the skin. 

Venus Viva is minimally-invasive yet highly effective at giving your skin a complete makeover. Skin resurfacing allows your skin to look years younger, evens your complexion, and can remove stretch marks and scar tissue — even deep scars caused by acne sores. Think of Venus Viva as a skin smoother. If wrinkles or uneven skin keep you from feeling your most confident, Venus Visa can help.

With either treatment, acne and acne scars or post acne marks can be cleared or smoothed to help you regain your confidence. This treatment helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles around mouth and under eyes, reduce pore size, and help smooth uneven skin. Age spots, brown spots, and sun damaged skin can also benefit. 

If you require skin resurfacing on other areas of your body, Frax and Venus Viva RF are safe to use on stretch marks and scars caused by surgeries, accidents, or acne. Use on the full body including the back, legs, arms, stomach.

Here’s what you can expect from skin resurfacing:

Anti Aging
It can help remove wrinkles and fine lines. Laugh lines, crows feet, and skin laxity can all be improved.

Stretch Marks
White stretch marks will be reduced or removed.

Skin Tone & Texture
The softness and smoothness of the skin can be improved, reducing rough skin and decongesting pores.

Hydration
Your skin will be hydrated, look plump and full, and be radiant and glowing.

Acne Mark Reduction
Acne sores can be minimized and cleared and residual scarring is prevented.

Scarring
Scars can be smoothed giving your skin a smoother, more even appearance.

  • I’ve been a VIP member since January of this year. In my mind I had expected more. One of the things most shocking is they push 5 star reviews.

FAQs

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is a method of revitalizing the look and texture of the skin using medical-grade technology. With skin resurfacing, wrinkles, fine lines, marks, scars, stretch marks, or areas of inconsistent color or texture can be smoothed, reduced, or eliminated. Our skin resurfacing treatments help to increase protein production and encourage cellular turnover so your skin can be healthier and more consistent in texture without downtime or long periods of residual peeling or healing time.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

Fractional laser skin resurfacing is effective in helping you have the smooth, even skin you’ve dreamed of having. 

In order to resurface your skin, the body needs to produce brand new, healthier, more protein-rich skin cells. The production of new skin cells happens deep within your skin — much deeper than you can see. As your skin cells die away and slough off, new fresh cells rise to the surface. 

Novuskin uses two procedures for skin resurfacing: 

Frax Laser

Non-ablative lasers send the heat below the epidermis and into the dermis where it creates microdamage. This safe damage triggers a healing response and signals the body to make collagen and elastin. The top layers of the skin slough off naturally with no blistering or peeling and reveal the healthy layers underneath.

Our ‘Frax’ fractional laser treatment is a non-ablative laser used for resurfacing the entire face and body, so you can have a laser skin resurfacing treatment that is safer and causes less pain than traditional ablative lasers.

The heat from a Frax skin resurfacing laser causes micro-injuries deep within the skin. These injuries trigger a cascade of events in the body. This cascade encourages the body to generate new skin cells and proteins, specifically protein and elastin, which are the primary contributors to smooth, youthful, healthy looking skin. As these new cells are produced, the old cells slough away, revealing fresh, beautiful skin cells that are no longer scarred. 

The Frax laser really works to improve the look and texture of your skin. Non ablative lasers like Frax cause less pain than ablative lasers with far less downtime. 

Venus Viva

Venus Viva skin resurfacing treatments use 160 nano needles, which are extremely tiny pins that deliver heat beneath the skin’s surface. This heat is caused by Radio Frequency. These pins create very small micro-injuries which cue the body to begin a cascade of healing. This process encourages the skin to regenerate tissue and produce collagen and elastin to  repair signs of skin damage. 

If you are seeking wrinkle reduction, Venus Viva includes use of the DiamondPolar applicator which uses Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to further heat the skin. This process results in smoother skin with less sagging. Everyone will notice how much more youthful you appear.

Is skin resurfacing on the face painful?

Laser resurfacing using Venus Viva or Frax laser can be a bit painful, although they are generally less painful than other resurfacing treatments and ablative lasers. While many people can tolerate the pain of fractional resurfacing, a numbing cream is available to help make the treatment more comfortable.

How do I prepare for this procedure?

You don’t need to do anything special to prepare for your treatment. If you are able, come to your treatment free of makeup and skincare products.

Please avoid direct, unprotected contact with the sun for at least 2 weeks before treatment. Be sure to wear an SPF of 30-50 if you plan to be in the sun.

Please don’t use retinols or other chemical peels for about 30 days before your treatment.

How long is a skin resurfacing procedure?

Your skin resurfacing session time will be approximately 45 minutes, depending on the size of the area we are treating.

What to expect after skin resurfacing?

After your Frax treatment, you’ll likely be a bit red and may feel a little sore. This is normal and should fade within a few hours. Within a few weeks, as your skin sloughs away, you’ll begin to see the results of the treatment. 

With a Venus Viva treatment, you may see a small amount of redness which should dissipate after your treatment within a few hours to a few days. 

You should notice after effects of fractional laser resurfacing or Venus Viva: smoother, more even, less wrinkled skin.

You’ll begin to see results 1-2 weeks after your treatment and your skin will see the full effects of the treatment within 4 weeks. You’ll likely need more than 1 treatment to see optimal results. After your final treatment, you will need touch up treatments about every 6 months to maintain the look.

Recovery time

You may need a few hours to a day to see any residual redness appear after this treatment. The micro-injuries caused by the treatment begin to heal immediately, triggering the healing cascade of events. But because this treatment doesn’t cause excessive peeling and the healing process begins right after the treatment ends, you should be able to return to your regular activities immediately.

Aftercare

Be sure to apply a moisturizer on your treated area throughout the entire healing process, even under sunscreen. Following your treatment, you must wear an SPF of 30-50 for at least 4 weeks, every day to protect your skin from the sun. Wear sunglasses and a hat if you plan to spend time outdoors. If your skin peels, avoid makeup until it is fully healed.

What skincare do I need to use after skin resurfacing?

Your aesthetician will give you specific instructions based on your individual treatment. We recommend you use an SPF of 30-50 after your treatment (and every day!) to protect your skin. We always recommend high-quality skin care products that are designed to nourish your skin from the inside out. Please be sure you are gently washing your face after your treatment and moisturizing with both a protective day cream and a nourishing night cream. This will help your skin heal quicker. You may notice you have dry skin and this is normal. 

If you have dark skin, these steps are extremely important, and even if you don’t normally use sunscreen, we recommend you use one at this time.

What not to do after skin resurfacing?

Do not use any retinols, chemical peels, or other harsh products for at least 2 weeks following your treatment, but speak to your aesthetician for specific instructions about your skin.

How often should you do this procedure?

While you’ll probably see some results after one treatment, we usually recommend fractional laser skin resurfacing as part of a treatment plan. Often, to see the best results from fractional laser skin resurfacing, you should use the treatment once a month from anywhere from 3-9 months depending on your skin concerns and goals.

Is skin resurfacing safe? What are the side effects and contraindications?

For good candidates, there are very few risks of facial resurfacing. The Frax Laser is FDA-approved for use on the skin and is not considered dangerous. If you are a good candidate for treatment, you will find the laser can provide excellent results for anti aging, reducing hyperpigmentation, and smoothing of scars and stretch marks while also generally improving the tone and texture of your skin.

If you have darker skin, Frax Laser may not be a suitable treatment for you. Frax Laser may leave areas of dark pigmentation on your skin. Venus Viva may be a better choice for you. Speak to your aesthetician for a full recommendation.

Contraindications

It may be best to avoid Frax Laser if you:

  • Have taken Accutane in the months leading up to your treatment
  • Have a weak immune system or any condition that inhibits clotting or healing
  • Tend to easily form scars
  • Have cancer or have had cancer in the past
  • Have skin color that is darker than Fitzpatrick Skin Type V
  • The laser should not be used during pregnancy or if you are breastfeeding

There are very few risks to Radio Frequency treatments. Venus Viva is incredibly safe for all skin types and tones. However, if you have any of these conditions, your technician may ask you to forgo your treatment.

For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you:

  • Have a pacemaker or defibrillator, or other electrical implant.
  • Have a rash or open wounds in the treatment area
  • Have sunburn
  • Have had cancer (either in the present or past)
  • Have any metal plates or permanent implants in the face or on the treatment area.
  • Are pregnant or nursing
  • Are otherwise sick or injured
  • Have uncontrolled diabetes
  • Are taking prescription medication to thin the blood
  • Have had cosmetic injections within the past 2 weeks
  • Have had surgical procedures in the past 3 months
  • Have had other resurfacing treatments or chemical peels in the past 30 days
  • Have tattoos in the treatment area
  • Have a skin-related autoimmune disease such as lupus

Skin resurfacing side effects

Frax Laser may cause adverse effects such as redness and swelling on the treatment site. Generally, people experience a sunburn-like sensation and for a few hours to a few days following their treatment. While there are few complications with Frax laser, in some cases, there may be mild peeling of the skin. If so, it’s best to allow the skin to fully heal on its own.

If your skin is too dark for treatment, you can be left with areas of uneven pigmentation. Please allow our aestheticians to make a recommendation for you if your skin is darker than a Fitzpatrick Skin Type V.

Venus Viva has very few side effects, but you may experience redness or a bit of soreness following your treatment. Allow the skin to fully heal on its own and simply keep it well hydrated.
