1. How will I feel after my treatment?


Your skin will be red and feel warm afterward, like a sunburn. You can ease this by fanning or exposing the area to cool air. Do not put anything on your skin, not even tap water, for 24 hours afterward. The warm feeling should go away within 24 hours.




2. Is there downtime after the treatment? / How long is recovery time?


Yes, but only for 24 hours post-treatment (or up to 5 days for more aggressive treatments), unlike lasers or other treatments where recovery or downtime lasts up to 10 days. Your skin will be red and for the first 24 hours, you will not be allowed to apply or rub anything on your skin, including water or sweat (so, no hot yoga or any other exercise that will make you perspire). After 24 hours, you may put on makeup and resume your regular skin care routine. You should apply sunscreen (at least SPF 30), preferably one without chemicals. But avoid rigorous exercise and hot baths or massages on the treatment area for the first 2 days after your session. Make sure to keep your skin clean and protected from the sun. Avoid any sort of tanning.




3. How long will the results last and are they permanent?


After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve. However, one touch-up session may be needed approximately every 6 months, depending on how your skin responds.




4. Do I need to do anything after my treatment?


If your skin feels hot, you can use a fan to cool it down. Avoid touching or scratching the treatment area. Do not put lotion, makeup, or anything else on your skin, including water, for 24 hours. After 24 hours, you should apply sunscreen (at least SPF 30), preferably one without chemicals. Also, avoid rigorous exercise and hot baths or massages on the treatment area for the first 2 days after your session. Make sure to keep your skin clean and protected from the sun. Avoid any sort of tanning.




5. Can I put on makeup or lotion right after my treatment?


No. You should wait till 24 hours after your treatment to apply any makeup or lotion.





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

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.

IPL REJUVENATION FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

AFTER THE TREATMENT

 

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


Venus Versa™ hair removal treatments are for individuals who want to permanently reduce unwanted hair on their face or body because they’re tired of the conventional methods that only yield temporary results. You may not be able to get this hair removal 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)
Poorly controlled endocrine disorders (e.g. diabetes or polycystic ovary syndrome)
Any active condition in the treatment area (e.g. eczema, psoriasis, rash)
History of skin disorders, keloids, unusual wound healing, or excessively dry and/or sensitive skin
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™ hair removal treatments are powered by Intense Pulsed Light technology, which targets the pigment under the skin’s surface. They tend to work best for light to medium skin tones with darker hair. The treatment may work on darker skin tones, but there is a higher risk of discoloration because darker skin has more pigment in it. It may also not work on very light hair, because the hair doesn’t have enough pigment in it to absorb the light. It’s best to consult with your treatment provider to see if the treatment is right for you. They will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on your complexion, to assess your skin’s reaction.




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


You’ll likely need 6-10 treatments per area. Hair grows in different stages and at different rates for everyone, so it depends again on each individual person and the area being treated.




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


Treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body.




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. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated. The technician will shave and clean the area before starting your treatment. They may ask about your medical history, so it helps to have that information ready. You should also avoid tanning before your treatment.





IPL HAIR REMOVAL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

BEFORE THE TREATMENT

1. How long does each treatment session take?


It depends on where you’re getting the treatment—an upper lip will be much faster than both legs.




2. What does the treatment feel like?


You’ll feel some heat in the area, but this will only last a short while, thanks to the real-time cooling system that kicks in right away to help minimize discomfort. The treatment itself feels like the light snap with an elastic band against your skin as the applicator moves around the treatment area.




3. Will it be painful?


The applicator has a built-in cooling feature 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 along the bikini line. If you find it too uncomfortable, let your treatment provider know and they can adjust the settings accordingly.
