Acne affects up to 50 million Americans annually, making it the most common skin condition in the United States and Canada.
Unfortunately, breakouts can occur at any stage of life—clinical studies have shown that 40-55% of adults aged 20 to 40 are diagnosed with low-grade acne and oily skin. Aside from the physical effects of acne, the condition can also have an impact on emotional and psychological well-being.
Treat acne vulgaris quickly and effectively by destroying acne bacteria while accelerating healing of existing inflammation.
How do Venus Versa™ Acne Treatments Work?
Venus Versa™ acne treatments use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse™ technology to treat both the underlying cause and the visible symptoms of acne.
It uses a combination of blue and red light delivered simultaneously-the blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria, while the red light controls inflammation and promotes faster healing. At the same time, a real-time cooling system works on contact to keep your skin continuously protected from the heat.

Venus Versa™ acne treatments are powered by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) 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.
This will vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the acne scars. Our team will be able to give you an estimate of how many sessions you will need once they take a look at your skin.
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 should 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.
