IPL Skin Rejuvenation

Venus Versa is a powerful, virtually pain-free Intense Pulsed Light treatment with SmartPulse technology. It reduces visible signs of premature aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, visible veins and discoloration. IPL photorejuvenation is the ideal treatment for vascular lesion reduction, sun damage reduction, skin tone improvement, and color corrections.

Most patients receive 4-6 treatments, with each session lasting approximately 15-20 minutes. Treatments are usually performed every 3-4 weeks.

Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse technology ensures optimal, precise, and consistent energy throughout the treatment to provide the best possible results. 

An advanced real-time cooling system ensures skin is always protected from the heat, so you can enjoy a more comfortable treatment with no downtime!

How IPL Skin Rejuvenation Works

The Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse technology delivers precise light through several layers of skin, which generates heat when its absorbed by the targeted tissue. At the same time, a real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected.

The Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse technology penetrates through the skin’s deeper layers to repair and rejuvenate from the inside out.

The real-time cooling system ensures your skin is continuously protected from the heat for unparalleled safety and comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

The best candidate is someone who has an uneven complexion with signs of discoloration or visible veins on their skin. Photorejuvenation treatments may also work to improve the look of fine lines.

Venus Versa™ photorejuvenation treatments work best for light to medium skin tones. The treatment may work on darker skin, but there is a higher risk of discoloration because darker skin has more pigment in it. It’s best to consult with the technician to see if the treatment is right for you. 

Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes 15-20 minutes.

Most patients receive 4-5 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.

Treatments are done 3 weeks apart.

Make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your session, and stop using any products that might irritate your skin 2-3 days before. You must also avoid any tanning, including with self-tanners. You may be advised to shave the area before your treatment. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated.

One session usually lasts 15-20 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

It feels like a really light snap with an elastic band against your skin, or like if someone lightly flicked you, as the applicator moves around the treatment area.

The applicator has a cooling feature built into it to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like the upper lip. If you find it too uncomfortable, let the operator know and they can adjust the treatment accordingly.

Your skin may feel warm, like a sunburn, and can remain red for anywhere from a few hours to a day. Be sure to follow instructions for before and after your treatment.

It really depends on how your skin reacts to the treatment and how you care for your skin afterward. For example, if you protect your skin from the sun, the results will last longer. We recommend one touch-up session every 3-6 months, depending on your skin responds to the treatment.

There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.

Avoid tanning for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your treatment, and wear sunscreen. You should also avoid hot baths, massages, or any treatment that requires direct contact with the skin for the first 2 days after your treatment.

Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen first.

I can’t say enough great things about this treatment! I have had several minimally invasive cosmetic treatments including IPL and Ematrix and this blows them away. I’ve never even posted a review or photos but am so impressed with this Medspa and this treatment. It literally erased wrinkles under my eyes and on forehead! Highly recommended! I will return for more! Melissa and Nicole are awesome!

Oh my goodness! This place is AMAZING! Melissa is gentle, fun, informative, caring, fair and she does amazing work for really good prices. I bought a Groupon for 2 micro- needle sessions. It was fantastic. While I was there, her prices were so great that I had her do a threading procedure on the outline of my lips that just defines the peaks and adds collagen (it turned out beautiful, natural and subtle), a package of laser hair removal for my hubby and and planning on starting…

I was very impressed with this little med spa. Melissa and Nichole are wonderful. I bought a Groupon for two microneedling sessions which led me to discover this gem.

This Med Spa is in the back of an industrial Park right on the corner of the building as you enter the parking Lot. I went here to have Laser Hair removal done by the Laser Tech Nicole. the procedure was explained, the entire process was less than 20 minutes and prices were the most reasonable within 15 miles from my research, a glass of refreshing water and a special aroma made this experience top shelf. I will be visiting here again!
