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. Overactive sebaceous glands that overproduce 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 andcan get trapped in pores which can lead to swelling and redness.
One Step Acne Treatment
Over active sebaceous glands that overproduce 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 & 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 consists of doing two treatments a week (spaced 3 to 4 days apart) for optimal results. The length of the program depends on the individual person and the area being treated. Each session will last approximately 15-20 minutes and guests can return to normal activities immediately.
Chemical peels are an important part of skin health and treating acne. As an effective treatment option for most skin types and concerns, they improve tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne breakouts and dark spots, but many people are intimidated to go in for their first peel treatment. The fear of leaving with a bright red face that hurts prevents some from experiencing the many benefits of a peel. The post-peel reality is a glowing, healthy complexion.
When your skin peels or flakes after a treatment your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This action is called cell turnover. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt and debris. The result is glowing skin.
There is minimal to no downtime with chemical peels as you’ll leave your appointment with a healthy glow and able to carry on with your regular activities. There are steps to ensure that your results are maximized. Following a post-procedure regimen recommended by Focal Point Salon & Spa staff following your treatment will enhance your results and keep peeling and redness to a minimum.
