Venus Epileve laser hair removal
Venus Epileve provides effective, fast and comfortable laser hair removal for the face and body.
The Venus Epileve uses a diode laser to target hair follicles in the anagen (growth phase of the hair cycle).
Once the laser’s energy reaches a hair it is absorbed by the melanin that surrounds it. This destroys the follicle so that the hair cannot grow anymore but doesn’t harm the skin tissue surrounding it.
A Venus Epileve laser hair removal treatment is ideal for anyone who want to permanently reduce unwanted hair, including ‘fuzz’, on their face or body.
During a Venus Epileve hair removal treatment, your treatment provider will move the applicator over the targeted areas.
Once the treatment starts, you’ll feel some heat in the area, but this will only last a short time thanks to the real-time cooling system that minimise discomfort.
If your treatment provider uses ‘Pulse’ mode, which delivers higher energy at a lower repetition rate, each pulse will feel like a light snap of an elastic band against your skin.
If they use ‘Slide’ mode, which delivers a high repetition rate of short pulses, it will feel like a series of light snaps as the technician glides the applicator continuously across the treatment area.
If the treatment feels too uncomfortable, your provider can adjust the settings.
The Venus Epileve treatment is safe for all skin types but for safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have:
Q. Is a Venus Epileve treatment painful?
A. The Venus Epileve applicator has a built-in cooling feature to make your hair removal treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort when treating a more sensitive area, like the bikini line.
If you find the treatment too uncomfortable at any time, let your treatment provider know and they can adjust the settings accordingly.
Q. How long does a Venus Epileve treatment last?
A. It depends on what area you’re treating (an upper lip will be much faster than both legs) but most treatments take 10-30 minutes.
Q. How many Venus Epileve treatments will I need to see results?
A. Most patients receive 4-6 treatments per area with treatments performed 4-8 weeks apart.
The exact number of treatments needed vary as they depend on individuals’ skin type, hair colour and texture, and the area being treated.
Venus Epileve targets the hair follicle in the anagen (growth phase of the hair cycle). About 30 percent of hair is in this phase at any given time, which is why you need multiple treatments.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, patients can expect a 10-25 percent reduction in current hair growth per laser hair removal treatment session.
Q. Can I still get a Venus Epileve treatment done if I have darker skin?
A. Venus Epileve hair removal treatments can be done on darker skin tones, even tanned skin, but using different settings, as there is a higher risk of discolouration (since darker skin has more pigment in it).
Your treatment provider will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on your skin tone, to assess your reaction to the laser and determine the best treatment parameters for your skin type.
Q. How will I look/feel straight after a Venus Epileve treatment?
A. You may feel like you have a slight sunburn around the treatment area, but this should go away after 1-2 days.
Some patients may also experience what appears to be a rash accompanied by some mild itching. The redness and itching will also subside over a few days.
Q. Is there any downtime?
A. No. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
Q. How long will the results last?
A. It depends on how your hair grows. Some people may see longer-lasting hair removal, while others who see sporadic hair growth in the area may need a touch-up treatment to maintain the results.
