IPL Photofacial                                         

 

Venus Versa™ works to reduce effects on the skin that are related to premature aging, including sun damage veins, and broken capillaries. It uses light-based technology to target the elements under the skin’s surface that cause the visible signs of aging.  This treatment is commonly called a Photofacial.  This treatment may also be done only in certain areas to treat broken capillaries,  sun spots, rosacea and generalized redness.  Spot or area treatments can also be done for broken capillaries and sun spots.

 

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 or visible veins on their skin. Photorejuvenation treatments may also work to improve the look of fine lines.
  2. I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?
    Venus Versa™ photorejuvenation treatments 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 the technician to see if the treatment is right for you.
  3. How many sessions will I need to see results?
    Most patients receive 2-5 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 2-3 weeks apart.
  5. How long does a treatment session take?
    One session usually lasts 5-15 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
  6. What does the treatment feel like?
    It feels like a very light snap with an elastic band against your skin, or like if someone lightly flicked you, as the applicator moves around the treatment area.
  7. How will I feel after my treatment?
    Your skin may feel warm, and may remain red for anywhere from a few hours to a day. Be sure to follow instructions for before and after your treatment.
  8. How long will the results last and are they permanent?
    It really depends on how your skin reacts to the treatment and how you care for your skin afterward. For example, if you protect your skin from the sun, the results will last longer. We recommend one touch-up session every 3-6 months, or as needed.
  9. Is there any downtime?
    There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
  10. If I got a treatment on my face, can I put makeup up on right after?
    Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen first.

“I was a sun worshipper for so many years and this treatment took years off my face! My friends have asked me what I’ve changed about my skin routine and I have no problems sharing my new secret.” – Sandy

“I’ve had rosacea my whole life. Its a constant battle of flare ups with the redness being the worst part. I’ve seen 5 or 6 different dermatologists who have prescribed topical medications like Cordran, Metrogel, and Mirvaso. Along with the antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline. Some work for a little bit and lose effectiveness while others make it worse(the rebound on Mirvaso is horrible). I’ve tried laser treatments that were painful and had little effect(except a really bright red face for a couple days). I’ve tried a low carb diet and probiotics with some success but no consistency on the results. Online topical creams like Derma Ros, Red Rock rosacea cream and Camuclear with no long term benefit. Over the counter products like Prosacea and TriDerma cream. Home remedies like apple cider vinegar(stings and smells) and coconut oil. Nothing worked until I had a consultation with Alana at Epic Medspa and at the time she told me the laser treatment I was getting elsewhere would be the same at Epic. I appreciated her honesty. A few months later, Epic contacted me to tell me about a new IPL they had purchased. The Venus Versa is the best treatment I’ve ever had. Quick and definitely less painful. The redness is now under control. I started laser every two weeks and I am now at once every five weeks for maintenance. Anyone who has rosacea knows there is no cure but this is the best treatment available. If you suffer from rosacea, I highly recommend having a consultation with Alana. She is both friendly and knowledgeable with skin treatments. Thank you!”
