BUYING a new dress for the festive events is all very well, but how can you make sure your skin is in tip-top condition too? Wrinkles, saggy jaws, spider veins and uneven pigmentation can all make you look less than party ready.

One treatment that can bring instant results, tightening up skin and improving its tone from the get-go is Venus Versa, which harnesses a combination of technologies and the power of light to reverse the effects of premature ageing and body concerns such as loose skin, cellulite and bra-bulge.

As we age, our collagen stores deplete and we produce less of it as the years go by, which leads to visibly ageing skin. Venus Versa provides a pain-free, non invasive treatment that feels comfortable as it heats the deeper layer of your skin to kick start that sluggish collagen production. This process effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles and tightens sagging skin around the jowls, cheeks and neck, as well as reducing cellulite and contouring the body.

While it may seem counter-intuitive – won’t adding more light to your skin increase the damage instead of fix it? – the treatment uses safe Intense Pulses of Light with advanced smartpulsed technology, as opposed to UV light, so it also improves and enhances the colour, tone, texture, and condition of your skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin deep within its tissues. Depending on the area being tackled, the non-invasive treatment can be completed in less than 20 minutes.

The Venus Versa handset - get ready for the science bit - also delivers 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, reducing wrinkles and pigmentation and resulting in a dramatic improvement to the skin with little discomfort and no downtime.

“The handset is moved over the skin, and feels like a facial massage,” says our tester. “Occasionally it does feel very hot, but as the handset is constantly moved on, it never feels too much. After just one treatment, the deep lines around my mouth were much less visible, my jowls were less baggy and my skin looked in great condition. I’m going to a winter wedding in a few days, and am really happy my skin looks so good for the occasion.”

Kirsty Jewson, owner of Saks Beauty Northallerton, says: “We’re thrilled to bring this clinically backed system to our customers – they’re loving their results. Our most popular treatments are the face and neck, and also the Brazilian bum lift! We were named Saks Beauty Salon of the Year 2016 and our whole beauty team is qualified to Level 4 Clinical Aesthetics – you’re in the best hands with us and our menu of advanced therapies.”

For individuals with brown spots and minor pigmentation problems a different technology would be applied. The system is suitable for the face, neck and décolleté, bum, back, bra-bulge, hands and abdomen.


For optimal results, a series of 3-8 treatments is required, although results can be seen after one treatment. Treatment duration depends on the technology being used and is between 1-3 weeks apart. Treatments start at £85 each and a 20 per cent discount is applied to course bookings.
