What is an IPL Photofacial
Have you started noticing small brown spots on your skin?
If so, you’re not alone. Many patients who have spent extended time in the sun are vulnerable to experiencing accelerated signs of premature aging on their face, hands and decollate. These sun spots are a form of skin damage, and they represent one of the most common skin concerns. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to improve your skin tone and restore a more youthful-looking complexion, a photofacial treatment.
The Venus Versa™’ IPL Photofacial treatment is a simple, non-surgical way to effectively target pigment under the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of discoloration and premature aging.
How does the Venus Versa™ Photofacial Work?
Venus Versa™ IPL photofacial treatments are powered by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to safely and effectively fade common signs of premature aging, including sun spots, discoloration, and visible veins. IPL technology sends precise light through several layers of skin. This targets skin imperfections, correcting them without damaging any surrounding tissue. The Venus Versa device comes with added safety features for a comfortable experience during each session. Furthermore, the device is fully customizable which means our team can adjust the settings to suit your individual skin type so you can get the best results.
