IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photorejuvination

enus Versa™’s photorejuvenation treatment works to reduce effects on the skin that are related to premature ageing. By utilising light-based technology, it precisely targets the underlying factors that contribute to visible signs of ageing beneath the skin’s surface to unveil a rejuvenated, youthful complexion. IPL uses a flash-lamp to emit polychromatic light across a broad wavelength spectrum of approximately 400 to 1400 nm. The device effectively fades and removes age spots, sun spots, freckles, vessels and general skin redness to greatly improve overall skin tone, texture and radiance.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?

During your IPL treatment a cool gel is applied to the skin and you will be given goggles to protect your eyes. A hand piece is placed on your skin and pulses of light are emitted to treat the skins imperfections. The firing of the IPL feels like the flicking of an elastic band, and does not require local anaesthetic cream or analgesics beforehand. Immediately after treatment the area reddens and may feel like sunburn for 2-12 hours and some swelling of the pigmented lesions may be seen. By day two, the pigment starts to darken, and over the next few days and weeks crusts over and falls away. This will take 5 – 7 days on the face and 10 – 20 days on the body.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Most clients receive 4-5 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated. Treatments are done 3-4 weeks apart.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

Results are permanent, however some clients will need to do maintenance sessions to maintain pigment control/vascular damage. It is highly recommend to follow the aftercare to avoid reversing results.

WHO CAN HAVE THIS TREATMENT?

Venus’ photorejuvenation treatments work best for light to medium skin tones. The treatment may work on darker skin, but there is a higher risk of discolouration 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.
