Venus Versa Nanofractional helps with fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks Rosacea, and textural irregularities.
"I have been suffering from Rosacea since being a teenager. At the time I was never properly diagnosed and my GP put me on steroid cream for 20 years! My skin was red, dry and starting to thin. I finally found a dermatologist who helped me get off steroid cream but never really found anything that worked for my rosacea and dryness.
After discussing my options with Janet at Five Senses I took the plunge and did 4 Venus Skin Resurfacing treatments and 2 IPL treatments. The difference is amazing! I have never had skin look this good- EVER!! My skin is smooth and no where near as red. Janet also directed me to a natural Dr. Spiller product for aftercare. I am so happy with the results they exceeded my expectations!" - Wendy
"I have had 4 Venus Resurfacing treatments at Five Senses. I started treating my skin with the machine with the hope that it would improve the appearance of very old, very deep and very pitted acne scars. Having struggled with my skin most of my life with acne, having scars left behind was just an awful reminder. I have tried many different treatments and creams in the past with the promise of improvement, but was always disappointed and defeated. Without spending an absolute fortune and dedicating a lot of time it seemed like I have run out of options. When Five Senses introduced the Venus machine with their resurfacing treatments I was skeptical, but because the treatments are affordable I thought i'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did! Not only did I get a significant improvement in the appearance of my scars but I also got a wonderful anti-aging effect. What lines around my eyes and forehead? The Resurfacing treatments changed my skin, but most of all it changed my confidence. Check out my before and afters on Instagram!" - Dorothy
"I have dealt with many scars for years because I'm very clumsy. I've tried so many things from the drug store and even tried very painful lasers at dermatologist clinics. They never told me anything about aftercare so the scars barely improved. I have had resurfacing twice so far and am so happy with how it's going! My scars have lightened and aren't as severe." - Jan
VenusViva™ is a non-ablative skin resurfacing device designed to deliver targeted columns of radiofrequency energy to the tissue. We cause damage to existing collagen, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. The body begins to repair by replacing the damaged collagen with new collagen. The radiofrequency also stimulates new fibroblasts, the “houses” that create collagen, thus increasing the amount of collagen in the tissue. This wound healing response creates a smoother appearance to the skin, plumps up fine lines and wrinkles, treats acne scars, and reduces pigmented lesions and textural irregularities of the skin. With targeted columns of energy tiny wounds are created; due to the wounds being very tiny there is significantly less downtime and the treatments are much more comfortable when compared to traditional ablative laser resurfacing treatments.
