Acne affects up to 50 million Americans annually, making it the most common skin condition in the United States1. Unfortunately, breakouts can occur at any stage of life—clinical studies have shown that 40-55% of adults aged 20 to 40 are diagnosed with low-grade acne and oily skin2. Aside from the physical effects of acne, the condition can also have an impact on emotional and psychological well-being.
This is exactly why medical providers and aestheticians have a lot to gain by offering an effective acne treatment. With that in mind, one powerful solution is to use an acne treatment workstation such as the Venus Versa™. The AC Dual IPL applicator combines blue and red light delivered simultaneously with each pulse. The blue light targets and destroys acne-causing P. acnes bacteria, while red light reduces inflammation and promotes faster healing.3
For a doctor or aesthetician looking for a safe and effective acne treatment system, the Venus Versa™ is a legitimate solution. With the right acne remedies, you can effectively help to turn your patients' lives around. While traditional treatments focus on either the cause or the visible symptoms of the skin condition, Venus Concept has developed an acne treatment device solution that targets both, resulting in greater clinical outcomes and higher patient satisfaction. In combination with Venus Concept’s industry-unique subscription model, the Venus Versa™ acne treatment system is designed to enable a higher return on ownership to further increase the success of your practice.
A versatile multi-applicator platform with three different, highly effective technologies in one workstation to address many of today's most challenging aesthetic concerns. The AC Dual applicator uses IPL to simultaneously address both the cause and visible symptoms of acne*.
