Acne Treatment

Venus Versus Acne Treatment
Contrary to what a lot of people think, acne is not limited to just adolescence. In fact, many people struggle with acne on the face and body well into their adult life—it can even start as an adult, despite never having dealt with it as a teenager. Unfortunately, acne continues to be one of the  most common skin care problems clinicians treat.
The Secret to Spotless Skin
Acne is caused by overactive sebaceous glands that produce too much oil and clog pores. Combined with the presence of P. acnes bacteria, this is what leads to the blackheads, whiteheads, and inflammation associated with acne. Rather than rely on topical over-the-counter options, Venus Versa™ acne treatments offer a more substantial, long-term solution to improve the look of acne-prone skin so you don’t have to hide anymore.

How It Works

The innovative Venus Versa™ Acne Dual applicator addresses active acne in the most efficient way possible: by treating both the underlying cause and the visible symptoms associated with the skin condition. It does this through the use of Intense Pulsed Light technology, specifically a combination of blue and red light delivered simultaneously.

The blue light targets the acne-causing bacteria in the oil glands. These bacteria contain a certain type of pigment that, when activated by the blue light, destroy the bacteria from the inside out. By eliminating this underlying cause of acne, the skin is better able to recover and blemishes will begin to disappear.

At the same time, the red light emitted from the applicator works to reduce the inflammation of existing acne and promote faster healing. Because red light can penetrate farther into the layers of skin, it’s better able to treat deeper pores and can help with reducing the production of acne-causing sebum. Research has shown that when blue and red light are administered together, like they are with the Venus Versa™ Acne Dual applicator, the results are much better than with just blue light alone.
