For patients who struggle with dark spots or sun-damage, our medical staff at Versailles Medical Spa can perform skin assessments to determine if you qualify for IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy. Versailles Medical Spa’s office is in Darien, CT, located between Stamford and Norwalk.
A Lumenis IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation problems on their face, neck, and other body parts. A photofacial is a noninvasive procedure, and it tends to produce great results. We use intense wavelengths of light energy that warm the skin cells just enough to stimulate the natural healing process and increase the production of collagen. Over time, you should see healthier skin with improved tone and decreased dark spots.
Are IPL Treatments For You?
With minimal downtime needed, Lumenis IPL reaches deep within the layers of your skin to improve several complexion problems, including sun spots and brown lesions. Candidates for IPL at Versailles Medical Spa may have several concerns with their skin, such as sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, visible pores, flushing, melasma, sun and age spots, or broken capillaries. Our medical team will assess your skin to determine if you benefit from an IPL treatment during a complimentary consultation.
An IPL photofacial is done at Versailles Medical Spa, and it takes about 20 – 30 minutes depending on the area that is being treated. To start the IPL facial, the medical provider will prep the skin and cleanse if necessary, before covering your eyes with protective laser shields. The IPL photofacial is administered using a handheld device that passes over the skin while emitting laser energy pulses. While some patients may feel some discomfort during the IPL, it is generally bearable because of the advance laser technology used.
Your IPL Treatment
Patients usually have very minimal downtime with an IPL photofacial, their skin will appear a little swollen and pink. This will decrease naturally in about a day and if preferred, you can conceal the redness with cosmetic makeup. Versailles Medical Spa suggests you apply its very own Kurative cream on the treated skin to decrease any irritation, discoloration and speed healing. During your consultation, the medical provider will provide detailed instructions about post-treatment care. Over several days, the sun damage and other irregularities under the skin will rise to the surface and then start to flake away. It's important to use Versailles Medical Spa’s clinically proven 50+ SPF protection and to not pick at the flaking skin. While you will have visible results after the first treatment, your complexion will look even better after several IPL sessions. We recommend scheduling approximately 3 – 6 sessions about once a month at Versailles Medical Spa.

"I recently had an IPL treatments on a brown spot on my face. After only a few treatments, this spot is gone! I can't even express in words how grateful I am to Marie and her staff. It was very easy to get an appointment and everyone in the office is a pleasure to deal with."- K.G. / Facebook / Feb 06, 2016
"Friendly, professional and highly competent. Love this place. I’ve gotten IPL, facials and eyelash tinting and have been happy with all three."- E.G. / Yelp / Feb 09, 2018
"Very clean beautiful space.Staff is friendly and knowledgeable but I always get the feeling that they are all sell sell sell and not necessarily looking out for your best interest.I went in for a consultation for a few different services- one of them was melasma on my forehead. My lady immediately recommended IPL (and nothing else) which is very costly. After leaving my NP actually told me IPL could make melasma worse because it gets triggered by heat and that’s a big risk. The lady at Versailles never mentioned this to me. I ended up purchasing a bikini line laser package. They are very strict about the dimensions for the areas, and will not do any extra for you even though you’re paying a lot of money. While leaving, the girls at the front desk were pushing products on me and wouldn’t take no for an answer after I nicely declined multiple times, which was uncomfortable."- N.C. / Yelp / Jul 20, 2020
"I was in recently for treatment recommendations for sagging skin. Amanda went over multiple treatments that they offered and I ended up going with the nova threads. I’ve contemplated facelifts, neck lifts, half face lifts for years now but I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat when it comes to going under the knife. Amanda said this was a great alternative and offers similar results with no downtime. I didn’t believe it but was open to giving it a go. I kid you not, the results were noticeable to me immediately!! I honestly couldn’t believe it, even my husband noticed a difference when I got home (I hadn’t mentioned this appointment to him prior), and that’s when I knew there really was a difference. I sent before and after photos to my children and my oldest daughter replied "what did you have done? You look lifted and tighter, I need that!". It’s only been one week to the day and the results just get better and the compliments keep pouring in! I’m truly surprised that I’ve noticed such a difference (and even more so that people around me have as well), because I was told it’s actually something that takes months before you really see the final results. I am so happy with things that I’m hoping to go back soon and have a few more added in the neck/chin area! I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who has ever considered a facelift - you won’t be disappointed and Amanda was exceptional, the entire staff was welcoming. My whole experience was wonderful."- G.M. / Yelp / Sep 21, 2021
