C section scars are a common occurrence, and in some skin types, they can be raised or dark in colour. In some cases, skin resurfacing with the Venus Viva may help reduce the appearance of hypertrophic C section scars. The technology used in this skin resurfacing device is safe for all skin tones, including those that are prone to hyperpigmentation and scarring! Keep reading to learn more about this procedure and whether it might be right for you.
Hypertrophic scars are caused by an overabundance of collagen in the skin. They can form anywhere on the body but are most common on the body and shoulders. While hypertrophic scars aren’t dangerous, they can be unsightly and cause discomfort.
Venus Viva skin resurfacing is a new type of treatment designed to improve your skin’s appearance and works exceptionally well on scars! Unlike traditional laser treatments, Venus Viva uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) technology to target problem areas and is SAFE for all skin tones. This technology helps to rebuild collagen and elastin in the skin. In addition to reducing scars, it’s also amazing for wrinkles and lines.
The Venus Viva is exceptionally comfortable with low downtime. From personal experience, it only took a couple of minutes to numb and resurface my own C-section scar. As a person with east Asian skin, I need to be careful with skin resurfacing treatments as I’m more prone to scarring, burning and hyperpigmentation. Pain levels were 0/10 on my C section scar after numbing, which was amazing because I have a low pain tolerance. Below is a photo of my scar three weeks after just one treatment. I have three more monthly treatments to go. I can’t wait to update everyone on the progress.
The Venus Viva skin resurfacing treatment is an excellent option for improving hypertrophic c section scars. I had the procedure done, and it helped my scar tremendously, lowering its appearance and texture significantly.
