Post Treatment Regimen
The team at GLO Antiaging Treatment Bar uses state of the art technology including the Venus Legacy, Venus Viva, and Yag Laser to tighten skin, helping men and women throughout the Calgary area see incredible improvements in wrinkles and skin laxity.*
How YAG Laser Technology Helps Improve Your Skin
By harnessing YAG laser power, we can significantly reduce your fine lines and wrinkles and lift sagging jawlines to give you tighter, smoother-looking skin. The GentleMax Pro® YAG laser creates a high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. This stimulates the production of collagen, which firms your skin, improves facial contours and helps you look younger. *
You may see results after just a few treatment sessions. The precise number of sessions will depend on the condition of your skin. A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as much as an hour, depending on the area and condition being treated. *
Some patients describe a sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. The Yag Laser is most commonly used to tighten skin on the face, neck, decolletage, and hands. *
Venus Legacy Skin Tightening
Using a patented (MP)² technology, Venus Legacy™ combines Multi-Polar Radio Frequency, Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields,and VariPulse™technology which enables therapeutic heat energy to safely travel deeper into the skin, resulting in increased blood circulation, skin tightening and glowing skin. During the treatment the device produces a therapeutic heat matrix over the skin as the radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form, along with the increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibers. Skin tightening results when tiny new blood vessels are formed in the treatment areas and dermal fibroblasts are created; fibroblasts then increase the number of collagen and elastin fibers. New collagen and elastin creation results in tighter skin and filling in of wrinkles and wrinkle reduction. *
Each treatment takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. The most common treatment areas are face, neck, decolletage, arms, abdomen, flanks, and thighs. A series of treatments are required in order to see optimal results, 8 to 10 treatments are recommended for the face, neck, and decolletage and 10 treatments for other parts of the body. It is common for patients to continue to see improvement in their skin for several months after the series of treatments have been completed. Treatments are safe for all skin types and can be completed year round regardless of sun exposure.*
Venus Legacy is also used for the treatment of cellulite and body and facial contouring. Further information is on the Venus Legacy treatment page.
Venus Viva Skin is an advanced, non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing and remodeling
Venus Viva™ uses NanoFractional™ Radio Frequency and one-of-a-kind SmartScan™ technology with a unique pin pattern that delivers energy to deeper skin layers, creating micro-dermal wounds. The surrounding healthy tissue helps to heal these wounds, which triggers the body to stimulate fibroblasts and rebuild collagen. The treatment process reduces skin damage with very minimal downtime. Venus Viva™ also features the DiamondPolar™ applicator, which uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce uniform heat on the skin. These two technologies increase collagen and stimulate a natural healing response, to produce a dramatic improvement to the skin with no pain and minimal downtime.*
Venus Viva treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed during all seasons. You will experience mild redness post-treatment. It is recommended that you do not workout for the remainder of the day and do not wear makeup for 24 hours post treatment. A single treatment session is approximately 40 minutes. The number of sessions in a treatment program will depend on the individual patient, but typically varies between 3-4 sessions, every 4-5 weeks. Patients may continue to see improvement in their skin for several months after the last treatment was completed.*
The most customizable Radio Frequency device currently on the market, the Venus Viva, can be used to treat several concerns at once, including dramatically reducing acne scars, enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and other textural irregularities, while tightening skin and providing superior rejuvenation for the face, neck and decolletage. * For further information, visit the Venus Viva treatment page.
