Laser Skin Rejuvenation
As we age, our skin reflects damage from the sun, the elements and the wear-and-tear of daily life. In response, we often seek aesthetic procedures to restore a fresh and youthful appearance. Photorejuvenation, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today, provides the idea answer. Removing age spots (sun-induced freckles) most brown pigmentation and redness due to broken capillaries, these treatments help ‘turn back the clock’. And with no downtime, Venus Versa technology is ideally suited for today’s active lifestyles.
In addition to these signs of photo-damage and early aging, IPL rejuvenation improves dull complexions, uneven pigmentation and large pores, as well as red flushing skin and rosacea.
How does Versa pulsed light technology work?
Versa pulsed light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the sub-surface skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by pigmentation. The heat impairs the vessel or lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process.
Is it safe?
Versa pulsed lights gentle energy parameters assure safe, effective treatment. Uniquely shaped Versa pulses precisely heat their intended targets, causing remarkably little or no skin damage or discomfort. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.
Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate Versa pulsed light treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of patients require no anesthesia, though topical anesthetic is an option for sensitive areas.
Treatment – what to expect?
Versa photorejuvenation treatments range from 15-30 minutes. First, the treated area is cleansed and a cool gel is applied. The light pulse is then delivered, with little or no discomfort. After treatment, the gel is removed and the skin is cleansed. You can resume all regular activities immediately.
How many treatments are necessary?
Treatment generally involves a series of five sessions. While some patients see significant improvement in two or three treatments, others may require more. To maintain results, patients may opt for follow-up treatments.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown pigmented spots may appear darker and capillaries may be more visible. To help guarantee the best results, limit your exposure to the sun for several weeks before and after treatment.
The Versa Pulsed Light Advantage
Delivering gentle, subtle improvement, Versa pulsed light gives your skin a younger appearance. Your skin will appear naturally even-toned and healthy, without the artificial look of other cosmetic treatments.
Unlike deep laser resurfacing and chemical peels, Versa is not accompanied by an extended period of redness and swelling, nor does it involve ablation of the upper layer of skin. Microdermabrasion has limited utility, it is ineffective in countering redness, flushing and broken capillaries.
