Ideal for those who want to get rid of unwanted hair on the face and body. This treatment works by destroying the hair follicle under the skin’s surface, which stops it from growing and reduces future hair growth in the area. The result is smoother, hair free skin.
Unwelcome hair growth can be embarrassing for everyone. And although there are plenty of hair removal options, they aren't always worth it. Shaving and depilatory creams might be a quick fix, but they only get rid of the hair at the surface—not to mention the risk of nicks and adverse skin reactions. Waxing and plucking may deliver longer-lasting results, but treatments are painful and time-consuming. Where does that leave you?
Soleil Laser Spa is transforming hair removal by using advanced technology to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body. You can finally enjoy smooth, hair-free skin with results that last longer than traditional methods.
Venus Versa uses light-based technology to get rid of unwanted hair on the face and body. It works by destroying the hair follicle under the skin's surface, which stops it from growing. The result is smoother, hair-free skin.

Laser hair removal treatments can be done on darker skin tones, even tanned skin, using different settings, as there is a higher risk of discoloration (since darker skin has more pigment in it).
IPL hair removal treatments work best for light to medium skin tones. Although they may work on darker skin tones, there is an even higher risk of discoloration. It’s best to consult with the technician to see if the treatment is right for you.
For both types of treatments, the technician will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on your complexion, to assess your skin’s reaction. He/she would know best what treatment parameters are most appropriate to use for your skin type.
Laser hair removal treatments are fast, even on larger areas like the back or two full legs. It’s also ideal for treating multiple areas, like the bikini area and underarms.
For IPL hair removal, it depends on what part of the body you’re getting treated. If it’s a smaller area, it may only take as little as 15-30 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 60 minutes.
For laser hair removal, most patients receive 4-6 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person’s skin type, hair color and texture, and the area being treated.
For IPL hair removal, you’ll likely need 6-10 treatments per area, again depending on each individual person and the area being treated.
Treatments are done 4-8 weeks apart for laser hair removal. For IPL hair removal, treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body.
Make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup (if you’re getting a treatment on your face) before your session, and stop using any products that might irritate your skin 2-3 days before. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated. The technician will shave and clean the area before starting your treatment. They will also ask about your medical history, so it helps to have that information ready. For IPL hair removal, you should also avoid tanning before your treatment.
The applicator has a built-in cooling feature to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like along the bikini line. If you find it too uncomfortable, let your treatment provider know and they can adjust the settings accordingly.
If you’re doing laser hair removal, you may feel like you have a slight sunburn around the treatment area, but this should go away after 1-2 days at the very most. You can use a cool compress to cool the area if need be. You may also see some hairs fall out more easily in the days following your treatment—this is perfectly normal. Some patients may also experience what appears to be a rash accompanied by some mild itching. This is also normal—it’s just the skin’s response to the energy. The redness and itching will subside over a few days. Cool compresses or antibiotic ointment can help speed up the healing process.
If you’re doing IPL hair removal, your skin may look dry and feel a little itchy because the operator has to dry-shave the area before starting the treatment. Moisturizing can help relieve the itch. Other than that, you shouldn’t really feel any different after your treatment.
It depends on how your hair grows. Some people may see longer-lasting hair removal, while others who see sporadic hair growth in the area may need a touch-up treatment to maintain the results.
There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment, regardless of whether you’re doing IPL or laser hair removal.
Be sure to gently clean the treated area twice a day and apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 before going outside; however, avoid excessive sun exposure. You should also avoid hot baths, massages, or any treatment that requires direct contact with the skin for the first 2 days after your treatment. For IPL hair removal treatments, avoid tanning for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks afterward.
