Venus Versa photofacial treatments work to reduce visible signs of premature aging, such as sun damage, brown spots, visible veins, discoloration, and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is powered by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse™ technology that delivers precise light through several layers of skin. This generates heat when absorbed by the targeted tissue, which corrects imperfections in the skin without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. A real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected throughout treatment.
During the treatment, you can expect to feel a snapping sensation on the skin surface, and you have the option to have topical numbing cream applied prior to the treatment if desired. After the treatment, you may notice immediate or gradual darkening of brown spots, with resolution over the subsequent few days, or up to 2 weeks, with either the body breaking down and clearing the pigment, and/or some of the pigment flaking off.
Please Note: These are general estimates that may or may not apply to you individually.

During your consultation, Dr. Anita will take time to learn about your concerns and aesthetic goals, and discuss treatment options in detail. She will go through your medical history and perform a physical exam to determine the best plan to reach your goals and make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment.
The day of the treatment, you will be asked a set of questions to make sure you are safe to proceed, and will have the opportunity to go over any additional questions you may have prior to the treatment.
Following the treatment, a sunscreen will be applied. Please use recommended post-treatment care products, and adhere to strict sun protection. Dr. Anita will see you for follow-up 4-6 weeks after treatment, at which time you may also do your next treatment if doing a series.
Using a powerful combination of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), radiofrequency (RF) energy, and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF), Venus Versa treatments are able to provide a range of beautiful results, including facial rejuvenation, hair removal, skin resurfacing and tightening, body contouring, and acne treatment.
IPL uses pulses of broad-spectrum light to deeply penetrate the skin, stimulating a therapeutic heat response. PEMF enhances the effects of RF, which generates therapeutic heat energy due to the resistance in the tissues to the movement of electrons in the RF field.
The thermal energy created induces changes in the tissue which trigger the body’s natural healing process, resulting in tissue regeneration and renewal, and leading to a rejuvenated and radiant appearance.
One of the three technologies involved in Venus Versa treatments is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). The other two are radiofrequency (RF) energy and pulsed electromagnetic fields.
The procedure is pain-free. The only sensation felt will be warmth.
Venus IPL Photofacials use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to deeply penetrate the skin’s layers, delivering targeted light energy to strategically-selected areas of the face. This light is absorbed by the tissue and transformed into therapeutic heat, evening out the skin tone by targeting vascular and pigmented lesions.
We recommend maintenance sessions every 4-6 months to prolong results.
