WHY DO I NEED A SKIN ANALYSIS AND CONSULTATION


The skin isn’t just the largest and fastest growing organ in the body, it’s also one of the first things people notice about us. From the moment we’re born, the aging process begins and it’s often accelerated by lifestyle choices and environmental factors. Good skins starts with attention and focus on the parts of the whole, from the delicate areas around the eyes and mouth, to the spots that tend to run oily or dry. A skin analysis and consultation is the first step in cultivating an awareness of our skin’s needs and developing a course of action to ensure that we protect and refine its natural beauty.




WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT


On your first visit to MJ SkinCare, you’ll complete a questionnaire telling us about your skin’s history and any problems you wish to address. Then, you’ll receive a one-on-one consultation with a skincare expert who will analyze your skin and customize a treatment plan to respond to your individual needs. We always take a comprehensive approach, recommending specific treatments based on both our observations and our clients’ responses, to achieve the most beneficial and transformative effects.




HOW DO I MAINTAIN OR PROLONG THE BENEFITS OF MY SKIN CARE TREATMENT


While we recommend staying out of direct sunlight and using sunscreen or a moisturizer with SPF after all treatments, a client’s follow-up will vary depending on the services received. In most cases, we suggest a simple at-home regimen that can be achieved in a matter of minutes. We’ll review your skincare goals with you and advise you on the next steps.





FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

1. How long does each treatment session take?


It depends on where you’re getting the treatment—an upper lip will be much faster than both legs.




2. What does the treatment feel like?


You’ll feel some heat in the area, but this will only last a short while, thanks to the real-time cooling system that kicks in right away to help minimize discomfort. The treatment itself feels like the light snap with an elastic band against your skin as the applicator moves around the treatment area.




3. Will it be painful?


The applicator has a built-in cooling feature to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like along the bikini line. If you find it too uncomfortable, let your treatment provider know and they can adjust the settings accordingly.

IPL REJUVENATION FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DURING THE TREATMENT

1. Am I a good candidate for this treatment? / Will this treatment work for me?


Venus Versa™ hair removal treatments are for individuals who want to permanently reduce unwanted hair on their face or body because they’re tired of the conventional methods that only yield temporary results. You may not be able to get this hair removal treatment if you have/are: Metal or other implants in the treatment area
Current or history of cancer
Pregnant or nursing
Any diseases that can be stimulated by light (e.g. epilepsy)
History of disease that can be stimulated by heat (e.g. herpes)
Poorly controlled endocrine disorders (e.g. diabetes or polycystic ovary syndrome)
Any active condition in the treatment area (e.g. eczema, psoriasis, rash)
History of skin disorders, keloids, unusual wound healing, or excessively dry and/or sensitive skin
Any surgical procedures within the past 3 months
A tattoo or permanent makeup in the treatment area
Excessively tanned skin




2. I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?


Venus Versa™ hair removal treatments are powered by Intense Pulsed Light technology, which targets the pigment under the skin’s surface. They tend to work best for light to medium skin tones with darker hair. The treatment may work on darker skin tones, but there is a higher risk of discoloration because darker skin has more pigment in it. It may also not work on very light hair, because the hair doesn’t have enough pigment in it to absorb the light. It’s best to consult with your treatment provider to see if the treatment is right for you. They will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on your complexion, to assess your skin’s reaction.




3. How many sessions will I need to see results?


You’ll likely need 6-10 treatments per area. Hair grows in different stages and at different rates for everyone, so it depends again on each individual person and the area being treated.




4. How often/far apart should the treatments be?


Treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body.




5. Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?


Make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams, or makeup before your session, and stop using any products that might irritate your skin 2-3 days before. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated. The technician will shave and clean the area before starting your treatment. They may ask about your medical history, so it helps to have that information ready. You should also avoid tanning before your treatment.
