As we age, our bodies start to show the effects of sun damage and the effects of our own genetics . Wrinkles are a common feature of aging skin we would all like to reduce. Skin wrinkling is primarily caused by sun exposure and the effect of the sun on our skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin . Special laser and radiofrequency treatments have been developed to safely and effectively treat facial wrinkling. There are two types of wrinkle treatments, non-ablative and ablative. Non-ablative treatment is safe and effective for mild to moderate wrinkles with no downtime. Ablative treatment utilizes
advanced technology that is highly effective for moderate to severe wrinkles with a short period of downtime.

Venus Viva - Ablative Wrinkle Treatment For moderate to severe wrinkles, textural irregularities, acne scars and deep lines and folds, JB Cosmetics and Facial Surgery utilizes a specialized fractionated radio frequency device called the Venus Viva to significantly reduce facial and neck wrinkling. This device is safe and clinical proven to reduce deeper lines and scarring. The Venus Viva relies on micro-fractionation, an advanced technology that has been show to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, acne scarring and fine lines with less downtime and pain than fractionated ablative laser treatments. Venus Viva uses a technologically advanced system of radio frequency energy that targets two parts of the skin, the epidermis (the outer part) and the dermis (the deeper part where scars, fine lines and wrinkles form). The Venus Viva causes Ablation (removal) of the outer, thin layer of the skin and heating of the deeper layer of the skin (coagulation). This results in a two-pronged approach to treatment. By treating the deep layer, you treat where the fine lines, winkles and scars form. The Venus Viva uses special technology to reduce pain and downtime while achieving dramatic results. The end result of a treatment with Venus Viva is more collagen production that will help reduce and remove scars, fine lines and wrinkles. Book a consultation with Dr James P. Bonaparte of JB Cosmetics and Facial Surgery at the Facial Surgery and Cosmetic Center of Ottawa and see if one of these wrinkle reduction procedures is right for you.
