Photofacial Q & A

How can a photofacial help me?

Photofacials with the Venus Versa cutting-edge (IPL) SmartPulse™ technology penetrate through the surface of your skin and generate heat as it’s absorbed by underlying tissue. This stimulates a healing effect, where your skin cells jump into action and quickly start forming new collagen, elastin, and other tissues needed to restore firmer, more vibrant skin. These noninvasive and virtually painless treatments can:


  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles
  • Even out skin tone
  • Minimize visible veins
  • Decrease issues with age spots and skin discoloration
  • Minimize the appearance of surgical, injury, or acne scars


Venus Versa even contains a real-time cooling system to help protect your skin and prevent burning. The entire treatment is safe and entirely effective. You should have dramatically improved skin after just 4-5 sessions, each spaced several weeks apart.


What happens during a photofacial?

At Lustre Med Spa, your photofacial is designed to treat your specific skin concerns, blemishes, and imperfections. Frances spends time educating you about what you should expect during your treatment, as well as how to care for your skin afterward. After your initial evaluation, all you have to do is lie back and relax.

Frances moves the Venus Versa applicator over your skin, focusing on problem areas. With each burst of IPL energy, it feels like a rubber band is quickly flicking your skin. The sensation is well-tolerated and you can even apply a numbing cream beforehand if needed. Your photofacial treatment is entirely comfortable and is often completed in less than 20 minutes.


Is there any downtime after a photofacial?

Not at all. You can return right back to all of your regular activities after a photofacial at Lustre Med Spa. It’s even common for men and women to schedule their photofacial services during their lunch break.

Even though you have no downtime after a Venus Versa photofacial, your skin is likely going to be a little more sensitive to sunlight than usual. Frances always recommends applying sunscreen before you leave the office — she even has clinical-grade sunscreen products available at the med spa.
