This effective treatment is the go-to if you are experiencing sun damage, pigmentation, melasma or visible thread veins.
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 discolouration and premature ageing. You will notice brighter, clearer skin as each treatment not only works on pigmentation but also vascular marks, such as spider veins and capillaries. Get ready to feel more confident even when makeup-free.
How does it work?
Venus Concept’s Photofacial treatments are powered by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to safely and effectively fade common signs of premature ageing, including sunspots, discolouration, and visible veins. IPL technology sends precise light through several layers of skin targeting specific imperfections., without damaging any surrounding tissue.

If you have light to medium skin and have noticed dark spots, sun damage or visible veins or redness then you are the ideal candidate.
