If you are uncomfortable with shaving, plucking, or waxing then laser hair removal may be a more comfortable option for you. Venus Versa facial hair removal is perfect for clients who have unwanted hairs that they want to get rid of and want long-lasting results. At Infinity MedSpa, we are proud to offer the most advanced IPL hair removal for patients in nearby Framingham, Massachusetts. You can finally enjoy smooth, hair-free skin with results that last longer than traditional methods.
What Is Venus Versa Hair Removal?
Venus Versa IPL laser is one of the most advanced hair removal devices on the market. This FDA-approved device uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) SmartPulse technology to reduce the speed of hair growth and provide significant facial hair reduction. Over time, this significantly reduces hair growth with results that last longer. The Venus Versa IPL system delivers 1.5 times more energy than the competitor, and unlike other laser hair removal treatments, Venus Versa is faster, more pain-free, and has more effective results.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Venus Versa treatments work by delivering energy to deeper layers of the skin to target melanin in the hair pigment and destroy the follicle. The Venus Versa SmartPulse technology ensures safe and consistent heat distribution, while a real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected from the heat.
Beginning your treatment, a handset will be placed onto the patient’s face and a light-based energy pulsates with a quick flash of light. This leaves the skin unharmed but destroys the hair follicle, removing hair and discouraging future hair re-growth. The hair follicles will be damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles and will fall out after one to three weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to grow, but they are loose in the follicle. Venus Versa IPL can treat a much larger area of skin per light pulse than regular laser hair treatment does, and the treatments are no longer than 15 minutes for facial hair removal.
Will This Treatment Work For Me?
The ideal patient is fair skinned with dark hair, but results can be achieved for different hair and skin types. The darker the hair, the more easily it is treated, as darker hair contains more melanin than finer hair, allowing it to heat up more easily. Whatever your skin color or hair type may be, our advanced system calculates the precise treatment to achieve the best results.
You may not be able to get this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have pacemakers, metal plates or screws in your face, take photosensitizing medications, have any open sores or skin conditions on the face, or have any tattoos. For patients in nearby Marlborough, Massachusetts, it is important you first speak to one of our experts before undergoing the treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Everyone’s hair grows differently. While you may notice hair loss about two weeks after your appointment, most patients receive six to ten treatments per area done six to eight weeks apart for the face. The exact number will depend on each individual person’s skin type, hair color and texture, and the facial area being treated. In between appointments, you may notice slower hair growth that is also thinner, lighter, and less. The upkeep of dealing with unwanted facial hair can be a pain, but destroying the follicle under the skin’s surface is the solution. A complimentary consultation with Infinity is carried out prior to any laser hair removal treatment. With our laser hair removal technology your skin will be permanently smooth and supple without the hassle.
Is This Treatment Painful?
Patients describe the comfort as moderate and acceptable. Venus Versa has a built-in cooling feature that keeps the skin comfortable at all times. Most people feel only a slight sensation during treatment. The skin can become red immediately after treatment, however most patients experience no side effects and any skin reaction usually disappears within just a few hours. If you find this treatment too uncomfortable, let your treatment provider know and they can adjust the settings accordingly.
What Aftercare Is Required?
Infinity MedSpa experts will guide you through the proper aftercare instructions in order to minimize any potential risk of side effects, however, you should:
- Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks after treatment.
- Keep the treated area clean with mild soap and water.
- Apply cold compresses if there is redness or swelling.
- Avoid hot showers and activities that cause sweating for the first 24-48 hours.
- Moisturize the treated area with a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer.
- Don’t pick or scratch the area to prevent scarring or infection.
- Follow the specific post-treatment instructions given by your provider.
- Results are not immediate, and multiple sessions are usually needed.
