Laser Hair Removal

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Venus Velocity™ provides effective, quick, and comfortable hair removal for the face and body using state-of-the-art laser technology. The powerful diode laser reduces unwanted hair in less time than traditional treatments (even for large areas) and because there’s no downtime, you can return to your regular routine immediately afterward.

The advanced cooling system works on contact to ensure your skin is always protected, so you can get more out of every treatment. Venus Velocity™ is safe for all skin tones, even tanned skin, so everyone can enjoy a more comfortable treatment.

HOW IT WORKS?

Hair grows in a cycle of three stages. Venus Velocity™ uses laser technology to target the hair follicle in the first stage (anagen), which is when the hair responds best to the treatment. About 10-30% 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. The result is permanent reduction of unwanted hair.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs


What does it feel like? Are laser hair removal treatments painful?

Once the treatment starts, expect to feel some heat in the area. For most, laser hair removal treatments feel like a light snap of an elastic band against the skin. The device applicator has a built-in cooling feature to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but some discomfort may be expected when treating more sensitive areas, such as the bikini line.

Is there any specific pre- or post-procedure care required?

Prior to each treatment, skin should be clean from lotions, creams, or makeup and most importantly, be shaved. Refrain from any other hair removal treatments, aside from shaving, at least six weeks prior to the appointment. It is also recommended to stop tanning a few weeks before each treatment.

Post-treatment, gently clean the treated area twice a day and apply sunscreen with SPF of 50 before going outside. Avoid excessive sun exposure whenever possible and cut out any hot baths, massages, or treatments that require direct contact with the treated skin for 48 hours post-treatment. In the days following treatment, hairs may fall out more easily—this is perfectly normal. Some clients may also experience what appears to be a rash accompanied by some mild itching. This is just the skin’s response to the energy and absolutely normal. The redness and itching should subside quickly, within a few days.

How long will the results last?

It depends on how your hair grows. Some people may see longer-lasting hair removal, while others who see sporadic hair growth in the area may need a touch-up treatment to maintain the results.
