FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

1. Am I a good candidate for this treatment? / Will this treatment work for me?


The best candidate is someone who has an uneven complexion with signs of discoloration on their skin. Venus Versa™ photofacial treatments may also work to improve the look of fine lines. For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are: Metal or other implants in the treatment area
Current or history of cancer
Pregnant or nursing
Any diseases that can be stimulated by light (e.g. epilepsy)
History of disease that can be stimulated by heat (e.g. herpes)

Any surgical procedures within the past 3 months
A tattoo or permanent makeup in the treatment area
Excessively tanned skin




2. I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?


Venus Versa™ photofacial treatments are powered by Intense Pulsed Light technology, which targets the pigment in your skin. They tend to 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 your treatment provider to see if the treatment is right for you.




3. How many sessions will I need to see results?


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




4. How often/far apart should the treatments be?


Treatments are done 3 weeks apart.




5. Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?


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 tanning, including with self-tanners. You may be advised to shave the area before your treatment. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated.
