Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)


Have you started noticing small brown spots on your skin? These sun spots are a form of skin damage, and they represent one of the most common signs of premature aging. Fortunately, there's a simple solution to improve your skin tone and restore a more youthful complexion.

Venus Concept's photofacial treatments offered by RichSkin effectively target pigment under the skin's surface to reduce the appearance of discoloration. The treatment also works on vascular marks (distended blood vessels often caused by UV exposure), such as spider veins and port wine stains. All it takes is a few quick treatments.

IPL is used for the treatment of benign pigmented lesions and benign vascular lesions. Using the SR515 & SR580 applicators, the photorejuvenation treatment utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to deliver direct bursts of energy onto targeted areas of skin. The intense pulsed light used is selectively absorbed by the target chromophores-namely, hemoglobin for vascular lesions, and melanin for pigmented lesions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about your IPL treatment


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. Photofacial treatments may also work to improve the look of fine lines.

2. I have darker skin - can I still get this treatment done?

Photofacial treatments work best for light to medium skin tones.

3. Can I do it during my lunch break?

Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes 15-20 minutes.

4. 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.

5. How often/far apart should the treatments be?

Treatments are done 3 weeks apart.

6. Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?

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.


1. How long does a treatment session last?

One session usually lasts 15-20 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

2. What does the treatment feel like?

The IPL treatment feels like a light snap or flick on the surface of the skin.

3. Will it be painful?

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.


1. How will my skin feel after my 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.

2. 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, depending on your skin responds to the treatment.

3. Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.

4. Do I need to do anything after my treatment?

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.

5. 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.
