Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Skin resurfacing in Grand Rapids is available at Remedy Hair Restoration & Medical Spa. The treatments provide a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing. We offer a few different devices that are extremely effective.
The Venus Viva works with small pins that safely deliver energy through the skin’s surface. This creates tiny wounds, which the body then works to heal naturally. This process is what repairs signs of damage seen on the surface of the skin.
The Bellus SkinPen creates many microscopic punctures in the skin’s outer layers. As these punctures heal, the remodeling process works to improve the skin’s appearance.

Before the Treatment

I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?
How many sessions will I need to see results?
Most patients receive 3 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated. Consult with your doctor to determine the best treatment plan for you.
How often/far apart should the treatments be?
Treatments are done 4 weeks apart.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
Make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams, perfumes, powder, or makeup before your treatment session, and avoid tanning. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated. If you have excessive hair on the treatment area, shave it beforehand. It also helps to be prepared with information about your medical history—the technician will likely ask about it.

What does the treatment feel like?
Will it be painful?
Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments may be slightly uncomfortable, but not painful. You’ll feel intense heat, similar to the feeling of sunburn, and your face will look red right after the treatment. For more aggressive treatments, you may get a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort.
