What is Laser Acne Treatment?

The Venus Versa acne dual applicator applies industry-leading light-based technology to reduce acne and associated inflammation. Blue light is used to kill acne-producing bacteria in conjunction with red light to reduce acne-related inflammation. The combined blue and red light heat-based technology improves acne and its associated inflammation and scars.


Laser Acne Treatment Corrects:

  • Acne breakouts
  • Acne inflammation
  • Acne scarring

How it Works

Acne breakouts occur because of several factors, such as excess sebum production, enlarged and clogged pores, and the activity of p.acnes bacteria. When your pores are clogged, your body develops an inflammatory reaction, leading to pus-filled cysts and pimples. You may also develop acne, whiteheads, and cysts because of acne-causing bacteria. The laser acne treatment focuses on the root causes of acne breakouts.

The Venus Versa device uses a combination of blue light and red light to address the two primary causes of acne breakouts. Blue light is delivered into the skin to kill the acne-producing bacteria, known as p.acnes bacteria, and red light reduces inflammation caused by clogged pores. Consequently, this treatment reduces the risk of acne breakouts and associated inflammation and scars, helping you achieve a smooth complexion.

Your Laser Acne Treatment Journey


After an initial skincare consultation, the affected area is cleansed and prepared for the procedure. The Venus Versa probe is advanced over the treatment areas of concern. An integrated cooling applicator allows the procedure to be as comfortable as possible. Most clients describe the session as a light flicking sensation against the skin. The session time can be 15 to 20 minutes.


Most patients need 8 to 10 sessions for optimal results, according to the medical provider’s recommendations. The sessions are scheduled twice weekly for one month, though some patients may need additional maintenance sessions. Your medical provider will curate the ideal treatment frequency based on your needs and goals.


There is no downtime or pain after the treatment. Occasionally, your skin can feel warm or appear red. After the treatment, make-up can be worn, and SPF lotion application and sun avoidance are strongly recommended for 2 weeks. Depending on your skin’s response, treatments should be scaled down from twice a month, monthly, to as needed for touch-ups.
