The best way to determine whether a Venus Versa™ IPL Photofacial is capable of giving you the results you desire is to view past results.
Photorejuvenation: Causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines.
Photofacials: When performed on the right person, it effectively improves skin texture, eliminating discolorations, reducing pore size, and minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. If you have rosacea, a condition that causes blotchy redness in the face, you may also benefit from an IPL Photofacial.
Reduces facial telangiectasia.
Removes unwanted hair.
When we decided to bring the Venus Versa™ IPL PhotoFacial machine into our array of tools, we conducted a lot of research on the machienes available. After carefully considering who our customers are and what their unique needs were we knew this was the perfect machine to add to our collection.
We each trained with the leaders of Venus Versa™ on how to get the best results out of the machienes.
Venus Versa™ is a powerful, highly effective Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin treatment that harnesses the power of light to reverse these effects of sun damage, as well as the natural aging process. While it may seem counter-intuitive (won’t adding more light to your skin increase the damage instead of fix it?), IPL treatments utilize safe infrared light (as opposed to UV light) to improve and enhance the color, tone, texture, and condition of your skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin deep within the tissues of the skin. Other benefits of IPL with Venus Versa™ include:
The state-of-the-art Intense Pulsed Light treatment delivered by Venus Versa™ is designed to deliver strong and precise infrared light throughout the sensitive tissues of the skin. Each treatment is custom-tailored to deliver the light at various depths in order to treat your specific concerns at their source. The light restores and rejuvenates dead and damaged skin cells at the molecular level, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, reducing wrinkles and pigmentation projects, and improving your skin’s overall tone and texture. Venus Versa™’s revolutionary, built-in cooling system ensures that it delivers safe, comfortable, highly effective rejuvenation over larger areas of the skin, while avoiding unnecessary damage to the surface of the skin.
A typical IPL session with Venus Versa™ usually takes about 15-20 minutes, and because the treatment is non-invasive and non-ablative, you can return to your normal activities immediately with no downtime! Some patients will experience temporary facial redness which may last up to an hour after the treatment. You will see some reduction in pigmentation problems immediately after your first treatment, and for individuals with brown spots and other minor pigmentation problems, one or two treatments may be all that is required. Most patients, however, require a series of 3-6 treatments, spaced about three weeks apart, for optimal results.
Before the procedure begins, you will be given protective eyewear to protect you from the bright flashes of light. A cool gel is often applied to the treatment area, both to lubricate the handpiece and to help cool the epidermis during the treatment. Your skin care specialist will apply brief pulses of bright light to the skin through the handpiece. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.
During the IPL photofacial procedure, you will feel a warm sensation caused by the handpiece. Some patients liken the sensation to a light “snap” from a rubber band. The number of pulses you receive will depend on the size of the area being treated, as IPL photofacial treatment causes very little pain.
Before beginning a Venus Versa™ IPL treatment we will do a complimentary consultation to see if your skin type, facial cosmetic concerns, expectations and goals are a match for our IPL laser treatments. The Treatment Professional will work with you to select the best treatment or combination of treatments for your skin type, facial cosmetic concerns, expectations and aesthetic goals. The estimated duration and cost of each session or series of sessions will also be provided to you. If you are a candidate, you may schedule your treatments and test spots at the time of this initial consultation.
The recovery time from an IPL skin procedure is often very short, as there is very little damage done to the skin during treatment. Depending on the skin condition you are seeking to remedy as well as your skin type, the redness that is present following the procedure may persist for a longer or shorter period of time. The side effects of IPLphotofacial treatment dissipate within a few hours for many patients. For some patients, however, the redness or dark spots may take a week to fade. Patients treated for severe acne sometimes experience longer recovery times, though they are often amazed by the results when the side effects wear off.
The most important things to remember following IPL photofacial treatment are to avoid the sun for several days and to wear plenty of sunblock for at least two weeks. Intense pulsed light therapy can give you excellent results for a year or more, but you must take care to ensure your skin is protected for the first few weeks after treatment.
Following Versa IPL treatments, there may be a minor degree of redness and puffiness to the skin, with some tingling discomfort that usually disappears within 1 hour to 2 days. You may apply makeup immediately and return to your regular daily activities with no “downtime”. A comprehensive Skin care program will be recommended for you to use in conjunction with your Versa IPL treatments. It is highly recommended you discuss a maintenance program and begin a home skin care program to prevent potential complications, optimize and maintain the cosmetic improvements you obtain with your Versa IPL treatments.
