Acne is largely a hormonal condition that’s driven by androgen hormones, which typically become active during the teenage and young adult years. Sensitivity to these hormones — combined with surface bacteria on the skin and fatty acids within oil glands — can result in acne. Acne commonly affects teenagers but can occur at any age.

Certain things can cause acne and/or make it worse:

  • Fluctuating hormone levels around the time of a woman’s period.
  • Picking at acne sores.
  • Clothing and headgear, like hats and sports helmets.
  • Air pollution and certain weather conditions, especially high humidity.
  • Using oily or greasy personal care products (like heavy lotions, creams or hair pomades) or working in an area where you routinely come in contact with grease (such as working at a restaurant where there are greasy food surfaces and frying oil).
  • Stress, which increases the hormone cortisol, can also cause acne to flare.
  • Some medications.
  • Genetics.


Acne can take several forms. They include:

  • Whiteheads: Bumps that remain closed by oil and dead skin.
  • Blackheads: Open bumps on the skin that fill with excess oil and dead skin. They look as if dirt has deposited in the bump, but the dark spots are actually caused by an irregular light reflection off the clogged follicle.
  • Papules: Small red or pink bumps that become inflamed.
  • Pustules: Pimples containing pus. They look like whiteheads surrounded by red rings. They can cause scarring if picked or scratched.
  • Nodules: Solid pimples that are deep in your skin. They are large and painful.
  • Cysts Lesions: Pus-filled pimples. These can cause scars.
  • Fungal acne (pityrosporum folliculitis): This type occurs when an excess of yeast develops in the hair follicles. They can become itchy and inflamed.



Venus Versa, specifically, provides a dual blue and red lights that serve separate purposes during treatment. For reduction in acne inflammation, the red pulsed light targets inflamed areas to enhance healing

The blue light kills Propionibacterium acnes bacteria in the oil glands, directly reducing your risk for future breakouts. These bacteria contain a certain type of pigment that, when activated by the blue light, destroy the bacteria from the inside out. By eliminating this underlying cause of acne, the skin is better able to recover, and blemishes will begin to disappear. At the same time, the red pulsed light targets inflamed areas reduce the inflammation of existing acne and promote faster healing. Because red light can penetrate farther into the layers of skin, it’s better able to treat deeper pores and can help with reducing the production of acne-causing sebum. Research has shown that when blue and red light are administered together, the results are much better than with just blue light alone.

Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes 15-20 minutes.

Most patients receive a total of 8-10 treatments. Treatments are usually done twice a week for a month. Make sure the treatments are scheduled 3-4 days apart.

Make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams, or makeup before your session, and stop using any products that might irritate your skin 2-3 days before. You should also avoid tanning. You may be advised to shave the area before your treatment. Remove all jewelry around the area being treated.

The applicator has a cooling feature built into it 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 the upper lip. If you find it too uncomfortable, let the operator know and they can adjust the treatment accordingly.

Your skin can feel warm, like a sunburn, with some redness, but other than that, you really shouldn’t feel any different if you follow instructions for before and after your treatment.

It depends on the severity of your skin and how well you take care of your skin after your treatment. We recommend a touch-up session twice a month, then monthly. Once the acne starts clearing up, you can then increase the time between maintenance treatments depending on how your skin responds to the treatment.

Avoid tanning for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your treatment, and wear sunscreen (at least SPF 30). 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. If you notice any blisters or scabbing, treat it with a prescribed antibiotic cream—always consult with your treatment provider first. You can go back to gentle washing and using gentle, non-irritating products immediately afterward.

Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen first.
