Featuring the newest, most effective hair removal solution.
Laser Hair Removal for All Skin Types
Healthpoint Laser Aesthetics has brought in the Venus Velocity, the newest diode laser on the market. It is a powerful and efficient system that is more versatile and easier to use than other devices. Treatments are faster, getting you home quicker and making it easier to schedule your appointments on lunch breaks or in between all of life’s other demands.
Pain is a thing of the past with this new laser, it is one of the most comfortable on the market. Perhaps one of it’s finest features is that with this laser you will no longer have to hear the words “no tanning between appointments” or “no tanning 4 to 6 weeks prior to treatment” because this laser works on ALL skin types, EVEN TANNED SKIN. No need to put any summertime fun on hold or to reschedule those boating trips, just let the Venus velocity get you hair free and silky smooth no matter what time of year.
The Venus Velocity features a new “SLIDE” mode, in which an entire area is gently heated, making the treatment significantly faster and eliminating discomfort. Combined with the advanced real-time cooling system which works on contact to ensure your skin is always protected. The result is an enjoyable, comfortable treatment with a 90-95% permanent hair reduction and 100% satisfaction.
- All skin types
- All skin colours
The best candidate for Venus Velocity™ laser hair removal treatments is someone tired of temporary hair removal methods, who is looking for a permanent hair reduction solution for the face or body.
For safety reasons, however, an individual may not be an ideal candidate if any of the following applies:
- The individual has experienced previous complications with laser therapies
- The individual has a history of keloid scarring
- The individual has an active infection or history of herpes simplex in the treatment area
- The individual has used a depilatory cream or other hair removal treatment (waxing, plucking, electrolysis) that removes hair from the root within the last six weeks
- The individual is hypersensitive to hydroquinone or other bleaching agents
- The individual has used oral Accutane within the last six weeks
Venus Velocity™ laser hair removal treatments are quick, though the length of the session will vary depending on the size of the treatment area. In most cases, sessions can be booked during a lunch break, and multiple smaller areas (such as the underarms and bikini line) may be treated during the same session.
Once the treatment starts, expect to feel some heat in the area. For most, Venus Velocity™ 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. If the treatment feels too uncomfortable, the treatment provider can adjust the settings. Post-treatment, skin may feel slightly sunburnt. A cool compress may be applied for relief and the sensation should fade in one to two days.
Venus Velocity™ laser hair removal treatments permanently reduce hair growth. All the same, no hair removal treatment is capable of halting hair growth entirely. Results depend on how the hair grows. Some small patches of hair regrowth may occur. While any hair that does grow back in the treated area is often sparse, less coarse, and often unnoticeable, a touchup appointment may be needed to maintain results.
Prior to each treatment, skin should be clean from lotions, creams, or makeup. The technician will shave and clean the area before starting the treatment. They will also ask about the individual’s medical history, so it helps to have that information ready. Refrain from any 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 a minimum SPF of 15 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 patients may also experience what appears to be a rash accompanied by some mild itching. This is just the skin’s response to the energy. The redness and itching should subside quickly, within a few days. Cool compresses or antibiotic ointment can help speed up the healing process.
Venus Velocity™ hair removal treatments can be safely performed on darker skin tones and tanned skin. However, there is a risk of discoloration due to the higher levels of pigment in the skin. The technician will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on the skin tone, to assess the skin’s reaction to the laser. For this reason, it is best to seek out a certified treatment provider, as they will know best what treatment parameters are most appropriate to use for each skin tone.
If I get a facial treatment, can I put makeup on right after?
Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen first.
