At Elysium Medical Esthetics, our patients have trusted us to help revitalize their skin—and deliver beautiful results—for years. Often, incorporating photofacials into your long-term care plan can help us target age spots, freckles, redness, small vessels, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and more. This non-surgical and effective procedure is one of the most versatile, popular treatments we have in our toolkit for keeping our clients looking youthful and refreshed.

When you book a Venus Versa IPL photofacial with Elysium Medical Esthetics at our West Bloomfield office, your appointment will be preceded by an in-depth consultation to determine your needs. This allows us to discuss your skin type, your specific concerns, and the treatment area you’d like to address. We like to say that the Venus Versa IPL is gentle enough for all skin types and sensitivities, but powerful enough to treat deeper skin concerns than a normal facial could.

The Photofacial Process.

What to Expect?


At Elysium Medical Esthetics, consultations are where we truly get to know you. We’ll listen to all of your concerns, assess the current condition of your skin, and work with you to determine a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and budget. From beginning to end, you’ll have our full attention and will be treated as a respected and valued guest of our office.

Book Your Photofacial.

Our front desk staff will book your treatment for a day and time that works best for you. Then, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your appointment to help optimize your results.

Arrive For Treatment.

When you arrive, you’ll be invited to one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment rooms. We’ll give you a comprehensive review of the treatment, make sure you understand what to expect, and answer any and all of your questions.

Sit Back and Relax.

Your aesthetician will treat you evenly and accurately. Our team is expertly educated and trained on the best techniques to ensure we meet your high standards and expectations. During a photofacial, we will instruct you to keep your eyes closed. However, you’re free to listen to music, chat with your aesthetician, or simply lay back and relax.

Next steps.

Once the photofacial is complete, we will assess the treated area and give you a brief review of your post-treatment instructions. At this time, we’ll book any follow-up appointments needed to maintain your overall treatment plan and help you make the most of your results!
