The best candidate is someone with signs of skin aging and damage, such as lines, wrinkles, uneven complexion, or uneven texture. Venus Versa TriBellatreatments work to improve the look of skin tone, elasticity, and texture.
While the individual treatments are quite comfortable, there will be some mild discomfort after having 3 treatments in a row and the sensation will vary by individual tolerance levels. A light snapping sensation or an increase in warmth may be expected during the photorejuvenation treatment; however, the applicator’s Real-Time Thermal Feedback feature and Real-Time Cooling system are designed to make the treatment as comfortable as possible and may completely disguise the snapping sensation for many people. The anti-ageing treatment will feel like a hot stone massage on your skin and is generally described as very comfortable. Because the skin has been heavily stimulated before the skin resurfacing treatment, patients may experience more discomfort during this third and final treatment in the TriBella series. Topical anesthetic may be applied by the treatment provider to minimise discomfort before this third and final treatment.
Each TriBellatreatment session takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete using three applicators with 10 minutes of delay between individual treatments.
Skin will be sensitive to sunlight and red following treatment. No makeup or skin care products, aside from the treatment provider’s recommendations, should be applied to the treatment area for a few days following treatment, at which time sun protection should also be applied regularly.
As well, it is important to note that TriBella consists of three treatments—photofacial, anti-ageing, and skin resurfacing. Photofacials are powered by IPL technology, which targets pigment in the skin. They tend to work best for light to medium skin tones because the heightened stimulation poses a greater risk of discoloration to patients with more pigment in their skin. While those with darker skin types may be candidates for the treatments separately, all treatments performed together in one session may not be the best fit for them. Treatment providers will perform a test spot and/or make individual recommendations for each candidate with skin type and safety in mind.
Best results are obtained with a treatment protocol of three TriBella treatments at a frequency of one treatment every four to five weeks. Three to five days of downtime following treatment may be expected and optimal results should be visible approximately three months after the third treatment.
