If you struggle with how your facial skin appears because of sun damage, fine lines, or dark spots, The Derm Lounge Med Spa in Dallas, TX can perform a skin analysis to determine if you qualify for IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. A photofacial with IPL Venus Versa is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation or wrinkles problems on their face and neck. A photofacial may be a noninvasive process, but it can be highly effective in creating ideal outcomes. This treatment uses intense pulses of light energy that heat the skin cells to ignite the natural healing process and to increase the production of collagen. Over time, the results will yield a healthier complexion with an overall improved skin tone. Call our boutique Med Spa today to schedule an appointment with our anti-aging experts.
IPL Ideal Candidates
IPL reaches the deeper layers of your skin to improve several complexion concerns (particularly brown patches and sun spots) with minimal or no downtime. Candidates for IPL at The Derm Lounge Med Spa will have a combination of concerns with their complexion such as rosacea, sun damage, brown spots (hyperpigmentation), rough texture, wrinkles, visible pores, freckles, melasma, redness, or broken capillaries. Dana Herbertson will examine your skin during your initial consultation to determine if you will benefit from IPL treatment.
"I have been going to The Derm Lounge for almost a year now and I cannot say enough great things about this place! I have done IPL treatments and chemical peels with Dana and have seen a HUGE improvement in my skin. Less redness and less discoloration in my skin from the sun! I most recently saw Dana for lip injections after an injector at another Med Spa made my lips severely uneven and lumpy. She reached out to other injectors and used the resources she had to find she best solution for fixing them. I've also seen Tomorrow for a facial, AND LITERALLY the most relaxing experience ever! She was very knowledgeable and customized the facial just for my skin and I left glowing! She also sent me home with the Arcona skin Care line and I am constantly getting compliments on how good my skin looks. I absolutely love this place!"- E.J. / Yelp / Oct 18, 2017

"At the age of 32 my skin decided to have a 15yr old going through puberty breakout. It was awful. I saw the derm lounge had an acne facial so I decided to schedule an appointment. I'll admit, I live by yelp reviews however, whenever I decide to get a facial I want it now which means I have to go to Groupon to find the people that have same day openings. I've been living the Groupon facial life since I started getting facials so I really had no idea of what I was getting was good. Well after seeing Karen at the derm lounge, I realized Groupon facials are trash. Karen was amazing. She was fun to talk to and walked me through every single thing she was doing. I have massive pores and she cleaned those bad boys out to a level I didn't even know was possible! In addition to my Grand Canyon sizes pores I have rosacea and she surprised me with "wanting to try something". She hit me twice with the IPL and scared the bajesus out of me. It wasn't that bad though I was just being dramatic. Karen recommend I come back in 8ish weeks depending on my 15yr old breakouts which I appreciated considering my trash Groupon facials always said I needed to come every 3-4 weeks. Needless to say, my skin looks amazing and you get what you pay for. I'll definitely be back!"- S.C. / Yelp / Dec 03, 2019

Plan Your Procedure
IPL Procedure Techniques
IPL generally takes about 20 – 30 minutes if no other treatments are performed during your appointment. To prepare for the IPL Venus Versa facial, your technician will wash and dry your skin before protecting your eyes with special laser shields. The IPL is performed with a handheld Venus Versa wand that will pass over the skin while emitting laser energy pulses. While many patients may have mild discomfort throughout the IPL, it's usually bearable given the short treatment length. Once the treatment is over, your complexion may be pink and swollen temporarily.
What to Expect with IPL
There usually is no downtime associated with an IPL photofacial treatment, but you may leave our office with your complexion a little red and swollen. This will decrease naturally as the day continues — it may be concealed with cosmetics if you prefer. We advise you keep a healing cream on the skin's surface to minimize any irritation and promote healing. It may also help to use an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine to help decrease swelling. Over the course of 2 – 5 days, the sun damage and other irregularities under the skin will rise to the surface and then start to flake away. It is necessary to protect your skin with sunscreen at all times after getting an IPL photofacial treatment and to not pick at your skin. While you will have some visible improvements after your first treatment, your complexion will obtain ideal results with multiple IPL treatments. Dana often suggests most patients get 3 – 6 sessions performed every 4 weeks at The Derm Lounge Med Spa.
