Can anyone have these treatments?
Yes. The specialised treatment settings allow for a customised approach. Each treatment plan is designed to address specific skin conditions and concerns.

Am I a suitable candidate for this treatment?
Nano-Fractional R.F is suitable for all skin types. This treatment is beneficial for any client who is looking to reduce the appearance of ageing (lines and wrinkles). It will improve skin texture by reducing the appearance of enlarged pores, and acne scarring.

**Please note: Karen Bowen Dermal Therapist protocols for darker skin types require adequate skin preparation with the topical application of a recommended pigment inhibitor product, 3 weeks minimum (AM + PM) prior to treatment.**

How many treatments will I need?
Skin revision treatments will vary depending on the individual case. However, our team suggests a minimum of 4 treatments, performed 4-6weeks apart will achieve ideal results. Advanced skin conditions may require additional treatments.

How long does a treatment take?
A topical anaesthetic is applied to the area for 45mins prior to the treatment. The nano-fractional R.F treatment may take between 1-2 hours depending on the area/s being treated.

What areas can be treated?
The areas typically treated are the face, neck, décolletage and chest.

What will my skin feel/look like after the treatment?
Every client will respond differently to treatment and will have a different rate at which their skin heals. Immediately following the treatment patients typically experience localised erythema (redness) and possible oedema (swelling). The skin may feel hot and tight (similar to sun burn), and some clients experience brief stinging when applying products 1-3 days after. Mild flaking/peeling of skin may occur. The skin will take 7-14 days to heal entirely following treatment. Specific after-care instructions will be provided by our team and should be followed to ensure effective recovery.

Skin Tightening Venus Viva™

Multi-Polar Radio Frequency

Karen Bowen offers the latest skin care RF technology from Venus Viva. Combining Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF), this effective treatment delivers heat into the tissue stimulating the remodelling of collagen and elastin. 

Skin laxity and plumpness will improve, and new capillaries are created allowing for a renewed blood supply to create healthy tissue. Treatments are comfortable, with no downtime. Radio Frequency technology is proven to be safe for all skin types.

As we age we produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, sagging and necklace lines. Venus Viva™ uses heat to naturally boost collagen production to tighten, lift and frame the face + reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 

  • Diminish fine lines
  • Diminish wrinkles
  • Tighten Skin
  • Improve circulation for natural radiance
  • Reshape without surgery or downtime

Downtime

Virtually painless, you can return to your daily schedule immediately.

Treatment Cycle

Most patients receive 6 - 8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated. Treatments are done once a week.

Does this treatment hurt?
No, this treatment does not hurt, but the client will feel an intense warmth within the skin as heat is delivered into the tissue.

How long will the treatment take?
Depending on the areas being treated our team advises clients to allow 1-1.5 hours.

What will my skin look like after the treatment?
Typically most clients will experience some localised erythema (redness) to the area that is treated, which can be present for up to 24 hours. Some individuals have experienced minor oedema (swelling) for 24 hours. “Down-time” is very minimal for this treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
Our team of therapists recommends a minimum of 6-8 treatments, 1-2 weeks in between each session. Clients will see the improvements to the treated area 6-12 months after the course of treatments.
