What is Venus Versa?

Venus Versa™ is a medical aesthetic device that can target a wide range of aesthetic concerns using a combination of different clinical technologies. The system can deliver up to nine different treatments that address concerns from anti-aging and skin resurfacing, to hair removal and acne reduction. Your treatment provider may not offer all nine treatments, so it’s always best to check with them beforehand about what their specific Venus Versa™ treatment system is equipped with.

How Light Therapy Works for Acne

Light therapy can treat acne that hasn’t responded to topicals because it works differently. With Venus Versa, we can directly target the bacteria that causes acne in your pores. 

Specifically, breakouts are caused by Propionibacterium acnes bacteria, which thrives in clogged pores. Venus Versa includes a dual-light applicator so it can deliver two types of light at the same time. The first is a blue light. The blue light created by Venus Versa treatment kills P. acnes bacteria, directly reducing your risk for future breakouts.

At the same time, Venus Versa treatment also delivers red light, which reduces inflammation in your skin and supports healing. 

On top of all this, we can also use the Viva™ modality of the Venus Versa system to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, too. The Viva treatment won the 2020 MyFaceMyBody Aesthetic Award for Scar and Skin Repair Treatment of the Year in Canada (where Venus Concept, the creator of Venus technology, is headquartered). 

We use the Viva applicator differently for acne scar treatment, so talk to her about all of your skin goals. She can incorporate the different treatments you need to improve any issues that are bothering you. 

What to expect with Venus Versa light treatment

If you’re curious to see if Venus Versa could help you get clearer skin, you’re probably wondering what these treatments entail. 

Good news: they’re convenient and comfortable. Each session takes around 20 minutes and you don’t have any downtime afterward. Because Venus Versa is completely noninvasive and designed with a cooling system, you can relax comfortably as we perform your light therapy. 

Most people see the best results with a series of multiple Venus Versa treatments (usually about eight). We customize a treatment program for you and your skin. We’ll let you know how many treatments will help you achieve your skin goals.  

Stubborn acne doesn’t have to be a permanent part of your life. With noninvasive Venus Versa treatment, we can directly target acne-causing bacteria while helping your skin heal. To get started with this treatment, call us or make an appointment online today.
