A Complete Acne Solution Venus Versa™
In the U.S. alone, some 50 million people have acne at any one time. Part of the experience for most who suffer from acne is the struggle to control breakouts followed by the fear of scarring. Finding the right acne solution that results in clear, healthy skin can be a frustrating and draining process.
Venus Versa™ paired with effective ongoing skin care, provides a holistic acne treatment plan that reduces acne-related redness and inflammation, kills acne bacteria to prevent future breakouts, and minimizes the appearance of existing acne scarring for a brighter, clearer, healthier-looking complexion.
Step 1: Reduce Acne with Venus Versa
Using the AC Dual applicator equipped with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, Venus Versa acne reduction treatments utilize a dual-wavelength approach to target acne-causing bacteria while promoting the healing of breakouts. Blue light targets porphyrins — organic compounds that are produced by P. Acnesbacteria — destroying the bacteria to prevent future breakouts. Red light, delivered in a longer wavelength, penetrates deeper into the skin and targets dilated blood vessels and oxyhemoglobin, reducing inflammation and likely allowing faster recovery of the sebaceous glands.
The applicator features a built-in real-time cooling system that monitors temperature 1,000 times/second to better ensure patient safety and comfort. Typically, traditional acne treatments focus on just one of two aspects—treating the cause or reducing the visible symptoms. Venus Versa’s dual approach cuts down on treatment steps and delivers effective results with just one treatment plan. Treatment sessions typically last from 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 2: Reduce Acne Scarring with Venus Versa
Venus Versa offers a non-invasive fractional ablation system that harnesses the power of radio frequency (RF) technology to resurface the skin, improving the appearance of acne scars and other signs of uneven skin texture for smoother, more even-toned skin. SmartScan technology uniquely distributes energy resulting in faster healing, minimal downtime, lower occurrence of PIH, and greater comfort.
Step 3: Provide Long-Term Support for Skin Health
Some maintenance treatments may be required to ensure long-term skin health. If your acne may be a result of excess sebum production, regular Venus Glow dermal rejuvenation treatments may help. Venus Glow treatments utilize a powerful tri-modality approach to deep-clean pores. This helps to reduce bacteria buildup and control sebum secretion, so patients may better maintain their noticeably healthier, natural glow with less worry regarding the return of acne breakouts. Venus Glow treatments also help to restore skin hydration while increasing local micro-blood circulation to help boost skin’s natural collagen and elastin production levels.
