Venus Versa Acne Treatment
WHAT IS IT?
Contrary to what a lot of people think, acne is not limited to just adolescence. In fact, many people struggle with acne on the face and body well into their adult life. Unfortunately, acne continues to be one of the most common skin care problems doctors see.
Acne is usually caused by overactive sebaceous glands that produce too much oil and clog pores. Combined with the presence of P. acnes bacteria, this is what leads to the blackheads, whiteheads, and inflammation associated with acne. Venus Versa™ uses Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse™ technology to provide gentle and effective acne reduction. This dual light treatment destroys acne-causing bacteria and reduces existing acne-related inflammation.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Doing two treatments a week (spaced 3 to 4 days apart) is usually recommended for optimal results. Each session will last approximately 15-20 minutes.
How it Works
The innovative Venus Versa™ Acne Dual applicator uses Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse™ technology to treat both the underlying cause and the visible symptoms of acne. It uses a combination of blue and red light delivered simultaneously—the blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria in the oil glands, while the red light reduces existing acne-related inflammation to promote faster healing. Research has shown that when blue and red light are administered together, the results are much better than with just blue light alone. At the same time, an advanced real-time cooling system keeps skin protected from the heat, making the treatment even more comfortable.
