Our Venus Versa IPLs provide three unique aesthetic solutions:
1. HAIR REMOVAL
Unwanted hair growth can sometimes be unsightly, but it can also be a hassle with constant shaving. Permanent hair removal with Intensed Pulsed Light (IPL) can be the answer you have been looking for.
People may want their unwelcome hair removed for cosmetic reasons, to ease their daily grooming chores or for health reasons. Many people suffer from small red bumps known as folliculitis or may have larger painful bumps known as Pseudofolliculitis barbae. These larger razor bumps are especially prevalent in darker skinned people. Permanent hair removal with intense pulsed light can provide relief.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that removes unwanted and excess hair from areas of the body with an intensely powered light. The light of the laser heats the hair follicle to the point that the root is destroyed. The skin around it remains unharmed. Today’s advanced technologies allow us to treat different skin tones and hair color.

2. PHOTOFACIAL TREATMENT
Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL photorejuvenation is the latest in modern dermatology, allowing patients to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. If you suffer from any of these problems, photofacial treatments may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
As South Floridians, its so easy to be accustomed to spending small blocks of time in the sun that it is all-too-easy to forget the damage that those warm rays are doing deep within the tissues of the skin. Unfortunately, many of the changes that we notice on our face are actually caused by sun damage triggered by either natural ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or artificial UV rays from tanning beds/booths, also known as “photoaging”. Sun damage comes in many forms, including:
- Irregular pigmentation problems on the hands, arms, face, chest, and shoulders
- Sun spots, liver spots, age spots, and brown spots
- Melasma (patches of darkened skin)
- Rough, uneven skin tone and texture
- Spider veins, broken or dilated capillaries, and/or rosacea
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
All of these elements are treatable with the Venus Versa™ IPL Facials, which can be used on the Face, Decollate, Arms, Hands, and other body parts.
3. VASCULAR LESIONS / FACIAL TELANGIECTASIAS
You’ve seen those small red veins on your face, hands, and legs. When they appear on you’re face they’re called “Facial Telangiectasias.” They are broken or dilated blood vessels or capillaries that are commonly found on the face, nose, chin, and cheek. Telangiectasias can also be found on the other parts of the body such as the legs, chest, back, arms, legs, and lower extremities. They are typically very small — smaller than a millimeter in diameter — and are red to bluish in color. They are superficially located underneath the skin and are considered vascular lesions that are usually benign.
The Venus Versa™ laser is specifically designed to treat various types facial vessels and vascular lesions called facial telangiectasia. The laser precisely targets these vessels with heat-energy. The targeted oxyhemoglobin (red blood cells) inside the visibly broken capillaries absorb the laser’s energy and are heated up, coagulated, or closed down. This process is called photothermolysis, and results in the disintegration of the vessels.
As a result of this light-based energy exchange between the laser and capillary, many patients will experience clearance of the telangiectasias on the face, nose, chin, and forehead within hours of the initial treatment. In addition, the thermal effect of the Venus Versa™ laser on the skin causes the body’s immune response to send scavenger cells, macrophages, to the treatment site. Therefore, over a period of 3 to 6 weeks, these macrophages work to absorb the treated capillaries, reducing the vascular lesions or facial telangiectasia. Depending on the severity of these broken vessels, a series of 3 to 4 Venus Versa™ treatments are recommended.
The patented Chill-tip is only available on the Venus Versa™ laser system. This makes the treatment therapeutic and safe because more energy can be delivered to the targeted telangiectasis without injuring the surrounding, healthy, non-vascularized skin cells. This unique chill-tip also makes the Venus Versa™ laser treatment much less painful.
