Fight Sun Damage with the Power of Light with Venus Versa™ IPL Treatments!
It is so wonderful to enjoy the warmth of the sun on our skin, especially after a long, cold winter or while enjoying a day at the beach, that it is all-too-easy to forget the damage that those warm rays are doing deep within the tissues of the skin. Unfortunately, many of the changes that we notice on our face over time are actually caused by sun damage triggered by either natural ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or artificial UV rays from tanning beds/booths. Also known as “photoaging”, we often seen sun damage in the form of:
- Irregular pigmentation problems on the hands, arms, face, chest, and shoulders
- Sun spots, liver spots, age spots, and brown spots
- Melasma (patches of darkened skin)
- Rough, uneven skin tone and texture
- Spider veins, broken or dilated capillaries, and/or rosacea
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
Benefits of IPL Treatment with Venus Versa™
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:
- Non-invasive and non-ablative
- One treatment can be completed in less than 20 minutes
- No downtime or recovery time: return to your normal activities immediately
- Built-in cooling system to ensure your comfort during treatment
- Powerfully reduces minor pigmentation problems like brown spots with just 1 or 2 treatments
- Safe and effective for all skin types

How Venus Versa™ Works
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.
