Venus Versa™ IPL hair removal treatments are proven, high-tech hair removal procedures. Published studies indicate that IPL treatments can significantly reduce the appearance of unwanted hair with very little maintenance.
Venus Versa™ IPL hair removal treatments direct intense pulsed light energy at the skin to disable the growth center of the hair, called the hair follicle. This is possible through a process of “selective photo-thermolysis,” or “radio-photothermolysis,” whereby the energy is absorbed by and injures only those tissues around the target. At the base of the hair follicle and hair shaft are pigment cells. The light emitted from the Venus Versa™ IPL device applicator has a specific energy level that lasts a specific duration such that its absorption by the pigment in the hair follicle is maximized. When the energy is absorbed, the heat released is sufficient to disable the hair follicle, which interrupts its ability to produce a hair shaft (a process called “selective photothermolysis”). While delivering the energy to the hair follicle, it is important to cool the skin to avoid injury. A cooling crystal is integrated in the Venus Versa™ IPL applicator to assist with patient comfort and safety.
Following Venus Versa™ IPL hair removal treatments, there may be a minor degree of redness and puffiness to the skin, with some tingling or discomfort. These effects usually disappear within 1 hour or up to 2 days. You may apply makeup, body lotion, and sunscreen immediately following treatment and can return to your regular daily activities with no downtime. It is highly recommended you discuss a maintenance program to maintain the cosmetic improvements you obtain with your Venus Versa™ IPL hair removal treatments.
Before beginning a Venus Versa™ IPL hair removal treatment program, you must first attend an assessment and information consultation with a treatment professional, during which your skin type, hair concerns, expectations, and goals will be assessed and discussed. The treatment professional will work with you to select the best treatment or combination of treatments for your unwanted hair concerns, expectations, and aesthetic goals. The estimated duration and cost of each session or series of sessions will also be provided to you during this time. If you are a candidate for Venus Versa™ IPL hair removal treatments, you may schedule your treatments and test spots at the time of this initial consultation.
