Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/30/2014 -- Technology breakthroughs and developments in devices for use in cosmetic procedures keep on being released. One of the latest currently being evaluated by the FDA for approval in the US is a device called Venus Viva. It is being used in Europe currently, it uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ technology and it is used for facial rejuvenation and skin resurfacing.
This week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, on webtalkradio.net, show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka, welcomes Dr Jon Mendelsohn, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon from Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr Mendelsohn is one of a select group of plastic surgeons in the US who are actively testing Venus Viva as part of the study for FDA clearance for its use in the US.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Mendelsohn begins by explaining what Venus Viva is, and the technology it uses. He talks about the study he is involved with, what the device is used for and the results they are seeing in early periods of use, particularly for skin resurfacing. The two doctors compare the results with current CO2 fractionated lasers and chemical peels, and highlight that there is less discomfort and less downtime but similar levels of results.
Dr Mendelsohn is excited about the results received so far and will report back more findings to the show as the study continues and their experience with the device grows.
