Microneedling & Skin Resurfacing
Dr. Bajoghli and the Skin and Laser Dermatology Center of McLean, Virginia now offer the latest in skin resurfacing for patients.
We understand these concerns and are pleased to offer Venus Viva microneedling skin resurfacing treatments. Over a series of treatment sessions using this leading edge, non-invasive, cosmetic procedure, signs of skin damage can be reduced and the skin’s texture and appearance improved regardless of the skin tone or the color of the skin. Patients often notice a smoother, more radiant, and healthier-looking complexion over time. In addition, there is significant improvement in many acne patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Venus Viva operates with tiny pins that deliver heat (through NanoFractional Radio Frequency) into the surface of the skin, which creates micro-dermal wounds, that are then naturally healed by the body. Microneedling repairs visible signs of skin damage with minimal discomfort and is proven to be generally safe and effective for all skin tones including those with skin of color.
Before treatment begins, our staff may apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. The Zimmer Cryo6, our cooling device, may be used to further anesthetize the treatment area upon request. The Zimmer Cryo 6 can cool the epidermis before, during and after the laser energy has been applied, without interfering with the laser beam. Once treatment begins, our physician or laser technician will glide the Venus Viva handpiece over your skin, delivering heated energy into the skin through tiny needles. A sensation similar to a mild sunburn or tiny pin pricks may be felt, but pain is kept to a minimum with the help of topical anesthesia and the Zimmer Cryo6.
Results vary from patient to patient. Patients who have received Venus Viva treatments from our staff had improved skin tone and texture, improvement in acne, and overall healthier appearing skin.
Venus Viva can be used to improve and reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, sun-damaged skin, uneven texture and even some types of stretch marks. This microneedling laser technology has been proven to show results for patients of all skin tones. If you would like to improve the appearance and texture of your skin, schedule a consultation with our experienced staff to develop a treatment regimen that is right for you!
After treatment, a mild sunburn sensation may be felt and redness may be seen for the next few hours. At home, this post-laser pain and redness can be kept to a minimum with the use of ice packs. Patients are directed to keep the treatment area moisturized with Aquaphor and to apply sunscreen of at least SPF 50 to the area daily. There is no downtime to this treatment and patients may immediately resume regular activities.
Skin & Laser Dermatology Center treats patients for all skin care concerns, including skin cancer surgery, cosmetic dermatology, sclerotherapy, laser peels, laser hair removal, hyperhidrosis, rosacea, and acne treatments.
Our Clients Say
My eyelid surgery results for the facial wrinkles look very natural. Very skilled dermatologic surgeon.
Dr. Bajoghli always has time for his patients, you never feel that he is rushing you and after you leave if you have any concerns he is very responsive to the point of giving out his cell phone number. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.
Nurse Rassmussen answers all of my questions, listens to my concerns, examines my skin, goes over my treatment protocol and gets me out the door quickly, but without feeling rushed, so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I have already recommended this practice to a couple of friends, and I will continue to do so with confidence.
I really appreciate the polite and professional service that Dr. Bajoghli’s practice provides in my dermatologic health. All of his staff make you feel welcome and are concerned for your care. Speaking as someone who neglected his skin care when I was young, I appreciate having a physician who is personally concerned for his patients.
