Unwelcome hair growth can be embarrassing for everyone. And although there are plenty of hair removal options, they aren’t always worth it. Shaving and depilatory creams might be a quick fix, but they only get rid of the hair at the surface—not to mention the risk of nicks and adverse skin reactions. Waxing and plucking may deliver longer-lasting results, but treatments are painful and time-consuming. Where does that leave you?
Venus Concept is transforming hair removal by using advanced technology to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body. You can finally enjoy smooth, hair-free skin with results that last longer than traditional methods.
Velocity Laser (Hair Removal) Treatments are advanced, proven, high-tech hair removal procedures. Published studies indicate that Laser Treatments can significantly reduce the appearance of unwanted hair with very little maintenance.
Velocity Laser treatment consists of directing laser energy at the skin. The energy disables the growth center of the hair, called the hair follicle. This is possible through a process of “selective photothermolysis”, whereby the energy injures only those tissues around the target, which is absorbed by it. At the base of the hair follicle and hair shaft are pigmented cells. The light emitted from the laser has a specific energy level and lasts a specific duration such that it’s absorption is maximized by the pigment in the hair follicle.
When the energy is absorbed, the heat released is sufficient to disable the hair follicle, which interrupts its ability to produce a hair shaft (selective photothermolysis). While delivering the energy to the hair follicle, it is important to cool the skin to avoid injury. An advanced cooling crystal is integrated in the applicator to ensure comfort and safety.
Hair grows in a cycle of three stages: anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting). Venus Velocity™ uses laser technology to target the hair follicle in the anagen phase, which is when the hair responds best to the treatment. About 30% of hair is in this phase at any given time, which is why you need multiple treatments to see results. Venus Velocity™ works by delivering energy to the hair follicle, where it’s absorbed by the hair pigment. This destroys the follicle so that the hair cannot grow anymore, resulting in permanent hair reduction.
