Developer and manufacturer of non-invasive aesthetic devices Venus Concept has launched a new hair removal system, the Venus Velocity.
The device uses diode laser technology, a real time cooling system, offers fast treatment of up to 10Hz and features an ergonomic applicator with three changeable heads: large (7cm2), medium (3.5cm2) and small (1.7cm2).
There are also two modes of operation, slide and pulse. The company states that the slide mode allows the practitioner to move smoothly and continuously over the treatment area, delivering a high repetition rate of short pulses, whereas the pulse mode delivers higher energy to tissue at a lower repetition rate, which consequently results in fewer treatment sessions.
According to Venus Concept, the system is suitable for use on all skin types and there is no downtime.
Venus Concept CEO Domenic Serafino said, "We are thrilled to be able to reinvigorate the aesthetics industry with a hair removal device that can actually generate a positive return, while also delivering a fast and comfortable treatment for patients. "Our goal has always been to provide the most innovative aesthetic solutions for practitioners while also prioritising the needs of patients, and Venus Velocity does exactly that."
