Venus Versa™ IPL treatments are proven advanced skin care procedures.  Published studies indicate that Venus Versa™ IPL treatments can significantly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, textural irregularities, and vascular and pigmentation blemishes in over 80% of cases; clients report a noticeable improvement in the cosmetic appearance of their skin during and at the completion of their treatment program. Venus Versa™ IPL treatments direct IPL energy to the skin in targeted treatment areas. This energy passes through the outer surface of the skin, called the epidermis, and penetrates into the lower layer of the skin, called the dermis. Once in the dermis, the IPL energy stimulates a cell called a fibroblast to produce new collagen. Over several treatments, this new collagen smoothens and softens the appearance of wrinkles, outsized pores, and textural irregularities. The treatment utilizes special filters to control the wavelength of the IPL energy to improve the appearance of rosacea, sun-damaged skin with pigmentation abnormalities, and vascular blemishes. Venus Versa™ IPL treatments are simple office procedures performed by a trained clinical treatment provider. They require no needles, medications, or surgery. When delivering the IPL energy to the skin, it is important to cool the skin to avoid injury. A cooling crystal is integrated in the Venus Versa™ IPL applicator to assist with patient comfort and safety. Following each Venus Versa™ IPL treatment, there may be a minor degree of redness and puffiness to the skin, with some tingling or discomfort that usually disappears in as little as 1 hour or up to 2 days. You may apply makeup immediately following treatment and can 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 Venus Versa™ IPL treatments. It is highly recommended you discuss a maintenance program with and begin a home skin care program to prevent potential complications and to optimize and maintain the cosmetic improvements you obtain through your Venus Versa™ IPL treatments. Before beginning a Venus Versa™ IPL treatment program, you must first attend an assessment and information consultation with a treatment professional, during which your skin type, facial cosmetic concerns, expectations, and goals will be assessed and discussed. 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. 

 

How long is the treatment?

This treatment is 30 minutes for the light part, but may take up to 45 minutes.

 

What areas can be treated?

Is it safe?

Venus Versa IPL can be safely performed by our qualified estheticians. All our estheticians performing IPL have had rigorous training by Venus Concept and are thoroughly knowledgeable on IPL and laser technology. In order to reduce complications we have you fill out a medical and health history form and go through all precautions before hand. Consultations and patch tests are required for all clients a minimum of 48 hours before first treatment, and up to 5 days depending on skin type.

What are the side effects?

Side effects include some redness in the area, some minor swelling, and some warmth in the area.

After treatment and risks

After you have your treatment your skin will be photosensitive for a minimum of 48 hours. Sunlight MUST be avoided, failure to do so will result in redness, swelling, and may increase risk of blisters, scarring or pigment changes. We do a patch test for all clients at a minimum of 48 hours before initial treatment. This is to reduce complications from unsuitable candidates. Tanning is not allowed, regardless of fake tan, tan from the sun or tanning beds. You must allow 2-6 weeks depending on tan before you may start the treatment. Bruising may happen but fades within a few days, redness and swelling of the skin may happen lasting one to two hours.

Is it painful?

IPL is not painful at all, patient comfort is optimized with the cooling crystal that is integrated in the Venus Versa™ IPL applicator to assist with patient comfort.

Post Care

  • Pigment IPL Treatments:Browning or darkening of the skin pigment, and purplish or black tints to a dark pigment, as well as crusting of the pigmented area over a few days, may all occur as part of normal post-treatment healing. Crusting will flake off, and while erythema and edema may also appear, these symptoms will resolve in 3 to 7 days.

  • Vascular Lesion IPL Treatments: Blanching, greying, or a deep purple tinting or blackening of the vessel may occur over the course of a few days as the damaged tissue will be broken down and absorbed. This may last approximately 3 to 7 days.

  • Acne IPL Treatments: A deepening in color of the treated lesions, tenderness to the lesions (if cystic), blanching/greying of vessels/vascular scars, and intense edema and erythema may occur, lasting 5 to 10 days. Swelling/Discomfort/Redness:Significant swelling and redness may occur following your procedure for up to 24 – 48 hours. It is not uncommon for patients to experience swelling in the under-eye area for the first 1 to 2 days post-treatment. This swelling will subside. You may also experience some redness and slight warmth emanating from the treatment area for the first 24 hours post-treatment, akin to a mild sunburn. This is a normal part of your skin’s post-treatment healing response. However, excessive or severe pain is unusual; if this occurs, immediately notify the spa.

  • Activity: Post-treatment discomfort is mild, and you may immediately return to your regular activities.

  •  It is advised that you avoid hot baths, saunas, Jacuzzis, and pools for the first 2 days following treatment, as bacteria found in these environments could cause an infection. It is best to avoid applying ice or cooling compresses to the treated area, as the heat emanating from the skin is the body’s natural healing response. However, if you are experiencing extreme heat or discomfort, you may use cold compresses to soothe the area.

  • Moisturizer: Moisturizer may be applied 24 hours after each treatment. Moisturizer should then be applied regularly throughout the course of your treatment program.

  • Make-Up: After 24 hours, most patients are able to apply makeup to hide the pinkness of the skin. It is important that you remove all makeup that is applied to the skin at night. Do not sleep with makeup on the treated area.
