IPL (Intense pulsed light) Photofacial

 

 

IPL (intense pulsed light) also known as photofacial, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that improves a variety of skin conditions on the face and the body. This includes signs of aging, such as sun damage, freckles, brown spots, broken capillaries, and fine lines, as well as skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, flushed appearence and rosacea. The laser light produces energy that heats up the skin. The heat is absorbed by the targated areas and this stimulates the production of new collagen. The light energy also targets and eliminates fine blood vessels that cause redness and unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. The outcome is skin that appears smoother and more vibrant. 

 

Depending on your skin, and the number or conditions you are treating a series of 3-6 treatment sessions is reccomended. After a treatment your face may be flushed, warm to the touch and brown spots may appear darkly initially. The darkness flakes off within a few days. Microneedling treatments are popular in combination with photofacials. 

 

 

Laser Hair Removal

 

Get rid of unwanted facial or body hair! Laser hair removal has been available for many years, but treatment options were limited. Our laser hair removal system is effective for nearly all hair types & colors, treatments are quick and made as comfortable as possible. Pulsed light is used to remove that hair and impair regrowth. Pulses of light safely penetrate the skin and disable hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously.  You may feel a mild sting or pinch like sensation during treatment. Prior to the treatment it is required that you shave the treatment area.  We reccomend 6 treatments, ususally booked 4-5 weeks apart.
