At aFresh® Med Spa, we are able to treat patients of all skin tones and types with our hair removal treatment, including African American, Asian, Indian, Hispanic and Caucasian. Hair removal with Venus Versa can be performed on almost any area of the body for men and women – from small areas such as the upper lip, underarms, bikini area, chin, neck, and face, to larger areas such as arms, chest, back, and legs. Hair removal with Venus Versa is non-invasive, and safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin.
What is the Venus Versa?
The Venus Versa is an intense pulse light (IPL) technology that can safely and effectively reduce unwanted hair. During your treatment, one of our specialists will apply pulses of light to targeted treatment areas where hair follicles break down with greater exposure. Over time, hair growth is significantly reduced. Patients can enjoy results that excel over waxing, shaving, tweezing, or hair reduction creams. The Venus Versa has been shown to be safe for reducing hair on the face and body, granting no downtime following treatment and providing a comfortable experience.
What does the treatment entail?
We recommend that you come to the office with a fresh shave of the area being treated. The equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color. A cold gel is applied to protect the outer layers of your skin. When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory ointment, or cold water to ease any discomfort.
What are the possible side effects?
Hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic procedure performed annually. Venus Versa has proved to be a safe and effective method for hair removal for thousands of patients worldwide. Potential but very rare side effects are swelling, redness, and scarring.
