Acne continues to be one of the most sought out skin conditions seen by most physicians. 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. Overactive sebaceous glands that over produce sebum is usually the main cause of acne, other factors, such as; hormones, medications and food allergies can also be the culprit. Bacteria can also play a huge role in acne. Bacteria can get trapped in pores which can lead to swelling and redness.
With the Venus Versa, Acne Dual, Focal Point Salon and Spa can easily treat acne in one easy step.
Focal Point Salon & Spa offers the leader in this technology called the Venus Versa™.
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. 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.
A typical treatment program at Focal Point consists of doing two treatments a week (spaced 3 to 4 days apart) for optimal results and the length of the program depends on the individual person and the area being treated. Each session will last approximately 15-20 minute and guest can return to normal activities immediately.
