Venus Versa™ IPL Photofacial Treatments

Diminish dark spots and other signs of premature aging for a more youthful, radiant complexion with Venus Versa IPL Photofacial

Age Spot Removal & Skin Rejuvenation with IPL

Dark spots and melasma affect millions of people, and over-the-counter products aren’t very effective in treating them. Luckily, IPL Photofacial treatments are an effective solution to age spots and other skin concerns. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It works by targeting the melanin in the skin that causes brown spots, age spots and melasma. The melanin absorbs the light emitted by the device, resulting in the body’s natural removal of the damaged tissue. The result is clearer, more even-toned skin.

Frequently Asked Questions


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

IPL Photofacial treatments work best for light to medium skin tones.

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.

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.

The IPL treatment feels like a light snap or flick on the surface of the skin.

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 can feel warm, like a sunburn, with some redness, but other than that, you really shouldn’t feel any different if you 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.
