What Is RF Skin Resurfacing?
At Hidden Oasis Med Spa, we use the pulsating beams of energy from the Venus Viva™ advanced radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing technology to exfoliate damaged skin cells layer by layer and improve the appearance of scars, visible pores, deep wrinkles, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture. RF skin resurfacing utilizing the Venus Viva at our San Antonio, TX office is an effective treatment for clients desiring clearer, softer, youthful-looking skin. Our skin resurfacing procedure is also part of our TriBella™ facial rejuvenation treatment, which features the advanced, versatile technologies of the Venus Versa™ and Venus Viva to perform a three-in-one therapy of IPL photofacial, skin tightening, and skin resurfacing treatments. Call us to schedule your skin resurfacing service with one of our providers, as soon as you're able.

Am I Candidate for RF skin resurfacing?
The Venus Viva is a perfect skin resurfacing tool for all skin tones, even darker tones. Ideal candidates are those who have signs of skin damage, such as scars, visible pores, deep wrinkles, stretch marks, or other blemishes or marks that can affect the texture of your skin. Some people who should not receive this type of skin rejuvenation technique include anyone who is pregnant or nursing, taking a blood thinner, or those with a compromised immune system, an active rash, or a history of skin disorders or dry skin. Hidden Oasis Med Spa lead aesthetician and laser professional Samina Wasifuddin will discuss your options and whether this procedure is appropriate for you.
How Does RF Skin Resurfacing Work?
After you get comfortable in our treatment chair, our provider will place the Venus Viva handpiece over your skin to directly target RF in certain areas for improvement. Numbing creams are used to make the treatment comfortable. The RF technology will remove damaged and dead skin cells and prompt collagen levels to produce. After your treatment, your skin may feel like it has a sunburn, but it's only for a short period of time. Venus Viva's RF skin resurfacing system is safe for all skin tones with minimal downtime. Our quick treatment sessions at Hidden Oasis Med Spa last around an hour with long-lasting results.
What to Expect From RF Skin Resurfacing
Venus Viva’s RF skin resurfacing treatments may feel slightly uncomfortable but not terribly painful. The heat energy from the device may look and feel like a sensation similar to a sunburn but it should subside within a few hours to a day. We recommend avoiding aggressive skin care products for at least a week. You may experience itchy skin or notice small pin-point crusts on the treated area but do not scratch or pick at the treatment area to avoid scarring the sensitive tissue. Peeling skin will naturally exfoliate but can be camouflaged with makeup. Some patients see instant results after the initial treatment, but on average, RF skin resurfacing takes 3 – 6 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results.

RF Skin Resurfacing FAQs
How do I prepare for RF skin resurfacing treatment?
Make sure your skin is clean when you arrive for your appointment. Before your session, do not apply perfumes, makeup, powders, creams, lotions, or tanning products. Remove any hair around the treatment area. Lead aesthetician and laser professional Samina Wasifuddin will be asking you about your medical history during your first consultation so come prepared with information.
How many sessions and how often will I need RF skin resurfacing treatment before I see results?
For best results, the Hidden Oasis Med Spa team typically recommends 3 - 4 skin resurfacing treatments per area spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart. After your final treatment, your skin will continue to improve. Depending on your outcomes and goals, a touch-up session may be necessary every six months.
Is there any downtime with RF skin resurfacing? What will I need to do after the treatment?
Lasting up to 30 minutes, this treatment has little downtime. Your skin may be red and feel warm, like a sunburn. You can return to your daily skin care routine in 24 hours, but some patients may experience more downtime for 2 – 5 days. Always follow the post-care instructions our Hidden Oasis Med Spa team will share with you after your treatments.
What does RF skin resurfacing treatment feel like? Is it painful?
Patients who receive RF skin resurfacing treatment describe the treatment sensation as slightly uncomfortable but not painful. You will slightly feel tiny pins on the skin followed by a little zap. After the treatment, your skin may be red and feel warm like a sunburn. A member of our aesthetic care team at Hidden Oasis Med Spa can apply a topical numbing cream on treatment areas before treatment if you desire.
