Have you started noticing small brown spots on your skin? If so, you’re not alone. Many clients 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.
Venus Concept's IPL face 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. There is minimal discomfort and typically only some redness for about a day afterward. With an IPL photofacial, you can achieve noticeably brighter, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin. Each treatment also works on vascular marks, such as spider veins and capillaries. All it takes is a few quick treatments, each of which lasts about 15 to 20 minutes and fits easily into your busy schedule or even on a lunch break.
Patients can receive the following benefits from this treatment:
Improvement of sunspots, age spots, dull complexions, uneven pigmentation, large pores, sun damaged skin, and early signs of aging.
Improvement of red flushing skin, rosacea, and broken capillaries.
Enjoy smoother skin with a more even tone.
Minimal discomfort during treatment.
No downtime – resume regular activities immediately.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Am I a good candidate for this treatment?
The best candidate is someone who has an uneven complexion with signs of discolouration or visible veins on their skin. Photofacial treatments may also work to improve the look of fine lines.
I have dark skin, can I have this treatment done?
Photofacial treatments are best for light to medium skin tones.
How long will it take?
Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes 15-20 minutes.
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.
How often do treatments need to be done?
Treatments need to be done 3 weeks apart. This allows time for the skin to properly heal.
What should I do to prepare for treatments?
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.
What does treatment feel like? Is it painful?
The treatment feels like snap or light flick on the skin. The applicator has a cooling feature built into it 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 the upper lip. If you find it too uncomfortable, let the operator know and they can adjust the treatment accordingly.
How will my skin feel after treatment?
Your skin may feel warm, like a sunburn, and can remain red for anywhere from a few hours to a day. Be sure to follow instructions for before and after your treatment.
How long will 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, depending on your skin responds to the treatment.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment. Making it the perfect lunch-time appointment!
Do I have to do anything after my treatment?
After-care is super simple! Avoid tanning for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your treatment, and wear sunscreen. You should also avoid hot baths, massages, or any treatment that requires direct contact with the skin for the first 2 days after your treatment.
If I get treatment on my face, am I able to apply makeup after?
Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen first.
