What Is Venus Versa™/IPL?
Venus Versa™ is a non-invasive photofacial procedure that can be used to rejuvenate the skin by penetrating it using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). It is a way to combat the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. It is able to fix pigmentation discoloration, and it can reduce the size of enlarged pores. It is also being used as a hair removal treatment, as the Intense Pulsed Light has the power to reduce unwanted hair over the face and body in many cases.
How Does It Work?
Venus Versa™/IPL is a new technology where an infrared light is used to specifically target any sensitive tissue areas of the patient’s skin. This has the general effect of rejuvenating it. The light has the effect of making the blood vessels and the collagen inside the skin contract and tighten up. By doing this, the patient should ideally notice that redness on the skin has reduced, along with spots, any spider veins and lines, and wrinkles. The Venus Versa™ process encourages the body’s natural systems to remove affected skin tissues, promoting the renewal of skin cells.
Three Treatments In One
The Venus Versa™ method offers patients three different anti-aging technologies, all combined into one beauty treatment unit.
1. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse™
This treatment involves photorejuvenation and photofacial techniques, where light is selected from a broad-spectrum and pulsed into the skin. The targeted chromophores in the skin absorb it, and this has a reaction, causing the light to transform into therapeutic heat. This can improve the appearance of vascular lesions, such as birthmarks, and provides the target skin with melanin to improve discoloration.
The SmartPulse™ technology means that the procedure optimizes the pulses of light, so the delivery is consistent and precise throughout. This treatment can also help with hair removal. The IPL can even help in fighting acne.
2. NanoFractional Radio Frequency with SmartScan™
This treatment is all about resurfacing the skin to make it appear smoother and more radiant. The NanoFractional technology does this by working on a number of skin complaints, such as acne scars, entrenched wrinkles, and enlarged pores, and it even works to improve skin texture and discoloration. The technology involves a set of pins being applied to the skin with energy distributed between them. The blasts stimulate the production of collagen, which creates tighter skin. The SmartScan™ helps the professional create a special treatment for each patient. That means that each patient has their specific area of need catered to as if it were a bespoke service.
3. (MP)2 Technology Using Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields
This is a technology that allows the patient to have a body contouring session done. This involves the reduction of cellulite, tightening of skin, and reduction of wrinkles. The Multi-Polar RF technology blasts heat into the tissue at various depths, and it stimulates fibroblasts, which are cells that produce collagen. The Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields promote the formation of new blood vessels and cause a rapid increase in collagen.
If you are interested in a customizable treatment, you will be happy to know that the machine can be adjusted and customized to work in line with the requirements of the practice. It is also mobile, so our professionals can wheel it around and relocate it easily if needed.
The Benefits of a Venus Versa™/IPL Treatment Program
Opting for a course of Venus Versa™/IPL treatments offers qualifying patients many benefits. Treatments may be used to target skin imperfections, signs of aging, scars, unwanted hair, cellulite, and much more. Below are some of the many benefits this treatment stands to provide.
- It is a non-surgical, non-invasive course of action. You do not have to undergo surgery to get great results. So for those patients who are naturally wary of plastic surgery, the Venus Versa™/IPL treatment is a great alternative.
- It uses an infrared light that penetrates the skin, but this is not a UV light, which is the harmful light. The light that the Venus Versa™ treatment uses is non-harmful and causes the body to stimulate the production of collagen as if it were a natural thing. As collagen is produced, it means that the skin will appear more youthful.
- The treatment is usually over and done with very quickly. Usually, it takes about 15-20 minutes to complete the session.
- There is no set downtime or recovery time. That means you can get back to your daily life as soon as the session has ended. What’s more, you can apply your makeup straight after the treatment without any hassle, which is a massive bonus for many.
- The machine has a built-in cooling system. Due to the fact that it does work with heat, this feature exists to ensure that the patient does not feel any major discomfort.
- The Venus Versa™/IPL treatment works on various skin types and ages. So no matter who you are or what your skin condition is, if you want to see results and don’t want to undergo surgery, Venus Versa™ could be the treatment for you.
- The machine is customizable, so it can offer you a personalized treatment for your skin type and your problem area.
How Much Does the Treatment Cost?
The answer to this depends on a number of factors, such as the specific skin issue you are looking to address. However, this can be discussed during your initial consultation at our office.
What Does It Feel Like After the Treatment?
For the most part, the only thing you should feel is a sensation similar to that of a mild sunburn. So you may feel warm. In addition, the treatment area may appear red for a few hours or a day or so. Please ensure that you pay attention to the aftercare instructions given to you by our professional. This should help these side effects to dissipate in the quickest time possible.
How Long Do the Results Last?
It’s important to note that the results vary from patient to patient. Depending on the severity of the skin condition you have and if it is minor, you may only need a couple of sessions. However, you will most likely need multiple treatments per treatment area for optimal results. The longevity of the results will depend on the way that your skin behaves to the particular treatment you have and other factors. For instance, it may also depend on the aftercare you perform when you go home. So the onus is on you to be careful and do all that is required to maintain the results for as long as possible. After the initial course of treatments, depending on your skin concern, we may advise that you come back to our office for a regular treatment schedule of touch-up sessions.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
The vast majority of people who are interested in Venus Versa™/IPL tend to qualify for treatment. However, there are always things to look out for and consider. That’s one of the reasons why an initial consultation is so important. There are some general things you should inform our professional of, as well as reasons why it may not be a good treatment choice. For instance, iIf you have an illness, syndrome, or disease that may be stimulated by light, we will want to review your other treatment options.
During a consultation at one of our offices, we can evaluate your health and medical history, discuss your cosmetic goals and skin concerns, and determine if Venus Versa™/IPL treatments may work for you. It’s important to be open and honest during this meeting so that we can ensure the treatment is safe in your case.
