Venus Viva

Venus Viva is a revolutionary way to say goodbye to acne scars, uneven texture, pigment irregularities, wrinkles, and frown lines. From tightening your skin to adding glow and radiance to your complexion, this treatment can leave you looking and feeling as youthful as you are.

Thanks to its innovative skin heating process, Venus Viva delivers astounding results with little downtime and minimal discomfort.

Gently heating the layers below the skin surface to smooth out lines

Venus Viva technology works by emitting radio frequency energy through tiny pins. These pins create the smallest marks in your skin, which in turn stimulate your body’s natural healing process.

As a result, the radio frequency energy hastens up healing deep below your skin’s surface. Your skin is better able to produce fresh, new cells, elastin, and collagen in response to that energy. After your treatment, your skin will look more youthful and firmer.

Changing the surface of your appearance

This noninvasive skin treatment helps reverse damage and signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, sunspots, and acne scars.

It also works to significantly improve the tone and texture of your skin. Studies show that the majority of patients report being impressed with changes in texture and the overall improvement of their skin after their Venus Viva treatment.

Nobody needs to know your age

While plenty of aesthetic procedures out there offer good enough results, Venus Viva is a minimally invasive treatment that offers an array of benefits. These include:

  • Minimal downtime
  • Long-lasting results
  • The large variable treatment area
  • Fewer treatments
  • No post-inflammatory pigmentation
  • Multi-applicators allow for increase treatment options
  • Exceptional anti-aging effects

Venus Viva works to even out your skin’s texture and decrease visible lines and pores for a more refined look. It also helps reduce acne scars and wrinkles for a healthier, clearer complexion, while also diminishing deep folds and lines, leaving your looking as vibrant and youthful as you deserve to look.

Best of all, Venus Viva treatments are safe for all types of skin, so just about everyone can take advantage of the benefits of this amazing medical aesthetic technology. It used to be that only people with fair complexions could benefit from resurfacing treatments. Now, thanks to Venus Viva, nearly any skin type can be retextured and resurfaced with consistent results.

A course of treatments works best

How many treatments you will need depends on your concerns. Whether you want to smooth out those lines around your mouth and eyes or treat deeper folds and wrinkles, Venus Viva treatments will tackle your troubles. For optimal results, a course of around 3 to 4 treatments is usually recommended.

What to expect after your venus viva treatment

You can expect a fast and effective treatment that lasts about  half an hour. Once you leave, you’ll be ready to carry on with your normal day. Some people do experience a mild sensation of sunburn, but this usually goes away within a day or two.

One of the best things about Venus Viva technology is that you can expect both long-term and short-term benefits. Immediately after your session, you should notice an improvement in your skin texture and tone. But over time, you’ll get to see just how brilliantly Venus Viva rejuvenates your skin to a more flawless condition.

Why adults suffer from acne

There are a number of reasons for this. Adult-onset acne can occur for many reasons. From family history and fluctuating hormone levels, to stress, certain skincare and hair products, to the side effects of some medications. Navigating adult acne can be daunting. If you’re noticing more frequent breakouts, there’s good news. Besides keeping a regular skin care routine with the right products, you can choose from several effective skincare systems.

Acne can be unpredictable and it can be tricky to get under control. It can become more complicated with age.

Finding a tried and tested system, can really help control your adult acne.

Chemical Peels

Regular chemical peels can help to improve mild to moderate acne. During a treatment session, a chemical peeling agent is applied to your face. The chemicals typically include ingredients like BHAs – a salicylic acid that acts as an anti-inflammatory to break down and exfoliate the outer layer of your skin. There’s also AHAs, which are similar to glycolic acid. This acid reduces inflammation and spots.

Chemical peels are good for treating active acne as well as hyperpigmentation; these are the discolored spots that acne tends to leave behind. They also work well for superficial acne scars. Peels that include glycolic acid can also work to improve acne and pigment changes for people with darker skin.

Lights and Lasers

Multiple treatments of skincare systems that use lights and lasers, such as MicroLaser Peel, ProFractional, and BBL, conducted at repeated intervals can help keep adult acne at bay. Broadband Light (BBL) is an advanced technology that uses pulsed light to improve pigmentation, age spots, veins, broken capillaries, and adult acne. It’s an effective way to restore your youthful appearance.

Say goodbye to adult acne once and for all

Adult acne is more common than you may realize. If you suffer from frequent breakouts, inflammation, and pigmentation, you know that treating your skin is an ongoing process of ups and downs. Some days or months are better than others. You don’t need to continually experiment with different products and treatments.  It’s always best to see an expert.

With professional skincare systems and personalized skincare routine advice, you can kick your acne to the curb and once again enjoy clear, smooth, and youthful-looking skin.

BroadBand Light (BBL) facial rejuvenation reduces skin damage, shaving years off your appearance. The advanced lasers send light energy through your pigment-containing cells to destroy unwanted pigmentation.

Forever Young BBL has been designed to treat a variety of skin conditions and help fight against the hands of time. Best of all, you can treat every area of the body with BBL.

What happens during treatment?

During your treatment, the Forever Young BBL uses visible spectrum light to improve your complexion. While the treatment improves the appearance of the top layers of your skin, BBL also works below into the dermis to revitalize skin cells. After several treatments, you can expect to see significant age-defying results along with a more even and clearer complexion.

Forever Young BBL is the ideal solution for the following skin concerns:

  • Fine lines
  • Sunspots
  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Rosacea
  • Skin tone, elasticity, and firmness

After a recommended amount of treatments, you’ll enjoy younger-looking skin with better tone, texture, and overall firmness.

Fighting the signs of aging with forever young bbl.

Wrinkles, redness, and pigmented blotches – all of which make you appear older – can be improved with BBL treatment.

The machine has been designed to use several filters that target different skin concerns. By using a combination of filters, we can tailor your treatment to suit your skin problems.

The process will restore your skin to its natural, beautiful complexion, making it vibrant and smoother.

  1. BBL helps acne

Often, oral medication is the go-to solution for significant acne. But if you have milder acne or have been left with acne scars that make you look older than you are, BBL can help to settle down active pustules. It does this by calming down inflammation and treating the redness that comes with scarring.

  • BBL helps scarring

Scars can leave skin looking dry and full of fine lines or wrinkles too early on. With BBL, we can settle the redness of scars (including post-surgical scars). With a number of treatments, even pitted scarring can be improved. That’s because BBL encourages new collagen formation, leaving your complexion clearer, smoother, and looking as young as you feel.

  • BBL goes below the surface.

Not only does BBL repair imperfections that cause early signs of aging on the top layers of your skin, but it also targets those same issues where they usually begin – below your skin’s surface.

Thanks to the cutting-edge technology, BBL’s heat and light energy can penetrate deeper layers of the skin to destroy pigment in cells and help to fade discolorations. In turn, collagen growth is stimulated for a plumper, firmer complexion that decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

After your forever young bbl treatment

After a BBL session, you may experience a little redness and even a sensation somewhat like a mild sunburn, but both usually settle down within a couple of hours.

Freckles, brown stops, and pigmented lesions will get darker during the first 24 hours and then flake off over the following few days, while broken capillaries just disappear.

Your skin will feel a great deal smoother and pores will be much less noticeable.

The new collagen starts forming around a week after treatment and will continue to improve for weeks afterward. Remember to follow our advice and use the recommended products for maximum antiaging results.

Thanks to BBL, you can fight the signs of aging and dramatically improve your complexion to look and feel more youthful.

When it comes to fighting the natural process of aging, we’re always on the lookout for wonder treatments to keep up efforts to look youthful and fresh from head to toe.

When we think that our lives are written on our faces, it’s only natural to want to do a little editing – filling in a few furrows, erasing a couple of fine lines, and evening out a few patchy spots. Thanks to constant advancements in the industry, there are now a whole host of procedures and products to help rejuvenate your skin and eliminate the damage done by sun exposure and the hands of time.

Today, we’re healthier and more active than ever before, so it’s only natural that you want to stay looking as young as you feel. The good news is that you can now achieve youthful results with skin rejuvenation solutions.

The Antiaging Treatments

  1. Tissue fillers

Injecting soft tissue fillers under the skin adds height to sagging cheekbones, diminishes signs of acne scars, improves the jawline, and restores fullness to hollow eyes and cheeks. Fillers are also an excellent solution if you want to fill in fine vertical lines, plump up those deep nasolabial folds that run from outside your nostrils to the corners of your mouth, and even re-sculpt and add volume to your lips.

  •  Botulinum injections

Botulinum toxin injections include Dysport, and Botox. The injections don’t require any downtime. Botox injections are effective when it comes to temporarily smoothing fine lines on your brow, face, and neck.

  • Chemical peels

Chemical peels are fantastic for treating age spots, discoloration, wrinkles, and superficial scarring. A peel is an acid solution of either trichloroacetic, salicylic or glycolic acid. The peel is applied to your skin and promptly gets to work dissolving skin cells and getting rid of your skin’s top layers. The effects tend to vary depending on how deeply the peel penetrates your skin, and that’s all determined by the strength of the solution.

  • Laser skin therapy

If you’re looking for effective ways to improve your skin’s tone, texture, and tightness, you’ll want to consider laser therapy. The lasers can remove moderate to deep lines and wrinkles while targeting specific cells in distinct layers of the skin. This means lasers can also treat conditions like spider veins, pigmented birthmarks, and port-wine stains.

Lasers can also erase acne pits and a host of other scars. There are different kinds of laser therapy treatments available, so it’s best to consult with a professional to determine the best treatment for your skin rejuvenation needs.

We all try our best to strike a balance as we age. But with age, the skin becomes thinner and less elastic. Skin tags, age spots, and wrinkles become more noticeable.

Even if you do everything right, your hands can give away your age.

It’s your hands that do the talking when it comes to giving away your real age. The hands take use and abuse compared to your face. From dryness to discoloration, your hands tell a vivid story.

Here’s what your hands might just be telling other people and what you can do about it.

Too much time in the sun

Sun exposure plays a big role in the aging process. Cumulative exposure over the years can result in thinner skin, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, and brown spots.

Regular sunscreen can protect your hands from sunburn and skin cancer; It helps in protecting your hands from the harsh aging effects of the sun.

It’s easy to forget about the hands when you’re protecting other parts of your body, which leaves them exposed daily to the sun. UV radiation results in a lot of skin changes associated with aging. The key is to not forget about your hands when you’re applying sunscreen. Don’t forget to reply when you wash your hands.

Hands-on hobbies

If you’re a big fan of hobbies that cause calluses, we have solutions for you.

Calluses are hardened bits of skin that appear from repeated friction and pressure. While they’re not usually sore, calluses can be a sign that you’re putting too much pressure on your bare hands and you need to protect your skin better.

While calluses aren’t really a cause for concern, you should treat them as soon as they pop up, or rather work to prevent them completely. The easiest way to do this is to wear gloves and the right protective padding when using anything that necessitates a forceful grip.

If you already have calluses, the best way to treat them is to soak your hands in warm water. Then, use a pumice stone to gently rub away the dead skin.

If you leave calluses to grow, there’s a chance your skin will become so dry and thick that it will tear. Split calluses are extremely painful.

Instead, seek regular beauty treatments so that your hands tell the world you’re young and fresh instead of a hardcore hobbyist!

Your hands can tell the world volumes. With regular care, you can make sure they tell everyone you’re younger than you are!

Spider Veins

May 3, 2019

Spider veins, especially, are a common appearance as we age. It’s not a huge cause for concern, and spider veins aren’t necessarily painful, but they can be unsightly confidence killers.

The good news is that you can do something about your spider veins, and it doesn’t have to be a big deal!

What causes spider veins?

There are a number of things that can cause spider veins. Common causes include:

  • Pregnancy – when you’re pregnant, the amount of blood in your body increases and causes the veins to enlarge.
  • Age – as we age, so our valves in the veins weaken.
  • Hormones – hormonal changes that take place during pregnancy, puberty, and menopause, as well as taking certain progesterone or estrogen medications and birth control pills can result in spider veins.
  • A sedentary lifestyle.
  • A family history of spider veins.
  • Sun exposure – too much time in the sun can lead to spider veins on the nose or cheeks, especially if you’re fair-skinned.
  • Obesity puts extra pressure on your veins.
  • Standing or sitting for prolonged periods of time or sitting with your legs crossed too often.

Spider veins are an inflammatory process, so they can be painful. The veins get stretched out and dilated, and that means they send local inflammatory messages to your brain, resulting in pain and swollen legs.

Thanks to laser therapy, you can minimize the appearance of your spider veins.

How laser therapy helps with spider veins

When spider veins are still superficial and relatively small, lasers like ClearScan can be set to precisely target the pigment in your veins. This causes the blood to coagulate, destroying the veins.

It’s a quick and fairly painless movement that feels a little like a rubber band snapping against your skin. Depending on how many veins must be treated and the density of each vein, a session can take anywhere from just 15 minutes up to an hour.

ClearScan

If your spider veins are sore or simply unsightly, it’s time to have them removed. ClearScan can help restore the color and tone of your skin. The laser treatment works to gently eliminate visible vascular structures and broken capillaries from the skin’s most upper surface.

The laser energy heats up those unwanted vessels, making them a whole lot less noticeable, or removing them completely.

Here’s what happens during a treatment

When you arrive for a ClearScan procedure, you’ll receive safety glasses or shields to protect your eyes. Next, laser energy is delivered to the area of the skin that requires treatment.

You might feel a brief hot or warm sensation as the laser pulses are absorbed by your spider veins.

How long your treatment will take all depends on the size of the area being treated.

Recovering After ClearScan spider vein laser removal

Healing time depends on the treatment. In most instances, there is no downtime and you can carry on with your day right away. You may experience a little redness after your treatment, but this subsides within a few hours.

Fast-Acting treatment for fast results

Some spider veins disappear immediately with laser treatment, while other destroyed vessels may become lighter or simply less visible in appearance.

The laser treatment works to collapse the unwanted vessels, so over a period of time, your body will naturally re-absorb the vessels, the same way you heal from bruises.

The process can take around several weeks.

You may need several treatments

How many treatments you will need also depends on the severity of your spider veins, and you may require several treatments for success.

Improvement lasts for a number of years at a time, but new veins may develop over time, which means you’ll need to book a touch-up treatment as necessary.

Preventing spider veins

Of course, once you get rid of your spider veins, you’ll want to prevent more developing.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Maintain a healthy diet
  • Get regular exercise
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Avoid sitting or standing for longer periods
  • Elevate your legs when you’re resting
  • Avoid crossing your legs when you’re sitting
  • Avoid tight-fitting clothing around your legs and waist

Spider veins can be sore, and they can certainly knock your confidence. But thanks to ClearScan laser treatments, they can be removed quickly and effortlessly!

The Venus Legacy

April 12, 2019

As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity. Thanks to the Venus Legacy treatment, you can improve cellulite, tighten your skin, and reduce small areas.

First, about Venus Legacy

Firstly, Venus Legacy is a device that’s designed to reduce cellulite, tighten skin, treat wrinkles, and reduce small spots of excess fat.

With the help of (MP)2 technology, Venus Legacy uses Pulsed Magnetic Fields (PEMF) along with Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) to produce a uniform heat matrix. This, in turn, encourages contraction, collagen production, improved elasticity, and lipolysis. As a result, you can look forward to a firmer, smoother, and more toned body.

How Venus Legacy differs from other contouring treatments

Venus Legacy is a highly advanced technology used for body contouring. The skin tightening and cellulite reducing treatment delivers pain-free, completely safe treatments with exceptional results.

Not only does the treatment involve RF and PEMF, but it also utilizes VariPulse technology, RealTime Thermal feedback, and 4D technology for superior contouring and tightening effects.

How does the treatment work?

Using a combination of the technologies we’ve mentioned, Venus Legacy works to deeply penetrate several layers of the skin, uniformly heating from the inside out. When your tissue temperature is increased, it enhances FGF-2 hormone activity and the triglycerides within your fat cells are broken down while fatty acids are freed from the cells.

In so doing, we can reduce volume. Blood flow to your treated area improves significantly, enhancing your skin’s texture and tone. Oxygen, minerals, and vitamins are carried easier t the cells, while waste materials and toxins are eliminated.

Venus Legacy also provides exceptional skin tightening results. That’s because, during treatment, new blood vessels are formed while dermal fibroblasts are created. These increase elastin and collagen fibers, resulting in firmer, tighter skin and filling in of lines and wrinkles for a smoother, youthful appearance.

What to expect during your treatment

Venus Legacy treatments tend to be relaxing, with some people saying it feels similar to a hot stone massage. The treatment takes around 40 minutes, and for best results, we usually recommend 6 to 10 treatments.

This is a virtually painless treatment with no downtime needed. That means you can quickly achieve cellulite reduction and skin tightening results and get straight back to the hustle and bustle of life.

Venus Legacy for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening

The RF causes a thermal response in tissues, activating your body’s natural response to healing. So, new elastin fibers and collagen are formed, causing your skin to both look and feel firmer.

Venus Legacy for body contouring and cellulite reduction

When your skin’s temperature rises, your body releases stress hormones. The hormones pass through your bloodstream and attach to receptors on the membrane of fat cells within the deepest layer of your skin. Once the stress hormone attaches to the receptor, it activates lipase. In turn, lipase breaks down triglycerides into free fatty acids. These acids exit the fat cells through your bloodstream, reducing fat cells as they do so. The result is a more contoured and smoother shape.

Areas that can be treated

Venus Legacy is designed with four different handpieces to treat different areas of the body. Treatments can work to reduce cellulite and tighten the skin on your face, neck, upper arms, buttock, abdomen, and thighs.

The number of treatments you’ll need is based on the area being treated. For example, most areas of the body require 8 treatments while the neck and face require about 6 treatments.

A safe treatment for all

Venus Legacy is a safe and effective treatment for skin tightening and to reduce wrinkles and fat. It’s also a successful treatment for most people.
