Modern aesthetic treatments are, above all, completely safe. Still, it helps to know what you’re getting into before you get one. The more informed you are, the more peace of mind you’ll have before, during, and after your treatment. You should always feel free to ask your certified treatment provider as many questions as you want about their services. They’re experts in the field of aesthetics, know the ins and outs of each type of treatment, and are always eager to share their knowledge. This will start an ongoing dialogue that will help you reach your aesthetic goals, not just now, but for a lifetime. Below, we’ve covered some excellent questions to bring to your next consultation or appointment.
A good way to start your aesthetic journey is by finding out what kind of treatments are available, and what each of them can do. Venus Concept offers a wide range of treatments, including fat treatments, anti-aging treatments, acne treatments, cellulite reduction, body slimming, hair removal, hair restoration, and more. Your treatment provider can go in-depth about the benefits of each one, and make recommendations based on your individual goals.
Finding out if you’re a good candidate for a face or body treatment is paramount. Venus treatments are, in most cases, safe for everybody, but there are some exceptions. Certain medical conditions, lifestyle issues, and other factors can influence whether or not a treatment is right for you. Your provider is the best person to help you decide which treatments will best suit your needs, goals, and personal lifestyle.
The majority of Venus Concept devices are safe to use on the skin of all shades, but that’s not the case with all medical aesthetic equipment manufacturers—additionally, some treatments are still not indicated for darker skin shades. Photofacials, for example, are best reserved for light to medium skin tones, but there are other facial treatments that can improve the look, health, and texture of darker skin, safely. Speak to your treatment provider to find out which treatments will work for you.
Although many of our treatments deliver visible results in just one session, some aesthetic goals require more. Hair removal treatments, for example, typically require anywhere from 6-8 sessions spread out over a year for the smoothest, longest-lasting results, and skipping sessions can result in the hair growing back where you don’t want it to. In other cases, you may want to consider regular “upkeep” visits for things like wrinkle reduction or acne treatments in order to keep your skin looking its best over time.
It depends on which treatment you’re having, but one thing we can tell you with confidence is that all Venus treatments are comfortable and quick. Most last between 15-30 minutes, and in the case of certain treatments, you may feel a little discomfort. Rest assured, your treatment provider is there to make any adjustments necessary so that you have the best experience possible.
Because our treatments are mostly non-surgical and non-invasive, they require minimal to no downtime whatsoever. If you’re worried about missing work or having to stay home to recover, know that most treatments can be done over a lunch break, and most clients go back to their normal lives right after. Depending on what treatment you get, you may experience residual tenderness, redness, and sensitivity.
Aftercare for aesthetic treatments tends to be very easy. Generally, you’ll want to avoid doing anything too stressful, but in most cases, you can return to regular activities right after your treatment. There are a few exceptions: some facial treatments require that you avoid exposing your skin to the sun, including tanning beds, for a few days afterward. You can find out more about specific aftercare recommendations by visiting the treatment pages elsewhere on our site.
This depends on many factors, including what kind of treatment you get, your age, lifestyle, and more. Aesthetic treatment results are cumulative, meaning the more you have, the more dramatic and long-lasting the results will be, and it’s important to follow the plan of your treatment provider for the longest-lasting results. That being said, we recommend regular upkeep sessions as your body continues to age, or as your aesthetic goals evolve.
This is always a good thing to ask, as before & after photos can be both informative and inspiring. We have several before & after photos on our site under various treatments, and your clinic or treatment provider should have some as well. You can also ask for client testimonials, and if you still have concerns, ask to speak to someone who has had the treatment themselves.
The short answer is, no. The aesthetic treatments offered via Venus devices are non-invasive and based on cutting-edge research and technology. We’ve certified our devices through years of testing to be safe and effective. We also make sure that the clinics and professionals who use our devices are highly trained, certified professionals. Speak to your provider if you have any specific concerns; they’re there for you.
