Laser Hair Reduction
Venus Versa™ uses light-based technology to get rid of unwanted hair on the face and body. It works by destroying the hair follicle under the skin’s surface, which stops it from growing. The result is smoother, hair-free skin.
- Am I a good candidate for this treatment? / Will this treatment work for me?
The best candidate is someone who has unwanted hair on their face or body, and who wants to reduce hair growth in a particular area.
- I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?
Venus Versa™ hair removal treatments work best for light to medium skin tones. The treatment may work on darker skin, but there is a higher risk of discoloration because darker skin has more pigment in it. It’s best to consult with the technician to see if the treatment is right for you. They will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on your skin tone, to assess your reaction to the light.
- Can I do it during my lunch break?
You may be able to, depending on what part of the body you’re getting treated. If it’s a smaller area, it may only take as little as 5-15 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 30 minutes.
- How many sessions will I need to see results?
Most patients receive 6-10 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
- How often/far apart should the treatments be?
Treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body.
- What does the treatment feel like?
It feels like a really light snap with an elastic band against your skin, or like if someone lightly ﬂicked you, as the applicator moves around the treatment area. The applicator has a cooling tip to maximize comfort.
- How long will the results last and are they permanent?
It really depends on how your hair grows. Some people may see permanent hair removal, while others who see sporadic hair growth in the area may need touch-up treatments to maintain the results.
- Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
- Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
Avoid tanning for at least 4 weeks before and 2 weeks after your treatment, and wear sunscreen.
- If I got a treatment on my face, can I put makeup up on right after?
Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen ﬁrst
Waxing or tweezing should be stopped 4 weeks prior to first treatment, and area should be shaved within 24 hours before every appointment.
