Intense Pulsed Light
Have you noticed several new dark spots on your face, hands, or maybe your neck? Has your skin become darkened over the years or discolored in specific areas, with unwanted hair? Do you notice small red marks (broken capillaries) on your cheeks or around the creases of your nose?
If you’re experiencing an unwanted skin condition similar to the one’s listed above, our professionals are available to suggest the best treatment option for you!
Intense pulsed Light (IPL) also known as, a Photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that emits a broadband beam of light through a small crystal onto the skin. Our IPL is a secret weapon for reversing pigmentation problems, unwanted hair, active acne or the tone of someone’s skin on any part of the body. The signs of aging can be treated easily by our IPL machine and safely by our laser technicians.
IPL can improve and treat the following skin conditions:
Pigmented and Vascular Lesions
Our IPL machine uses a unique combination of radiofrequency and light to isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. Using gentle pulses of two targeted energies means better results with lower overall energy output, assuring the highest level of safety and comfort. The laser is attracted to the hyperpigmentation on the skin and draws it towards the surface, eventually flaking off. When treating redness the laser setting is attracted to the hemoglobin and heats up the tiny vessels until they collapse and the blood retreats. This provides a clearer, smoother complexion, which smooth’s out your skin tone.
IPL treatments help diminish the dark shadows of hyperpigmentation and create a younger looking complexion. If you have signs of red areas with broken capillaries on any area of the face the IPL machine will improve those areas and help with your complexion as well.
During the treatment it will be normal to feel some discomfort especially, on the sensitive areas. The crystal has a chilled tip to help cool the skin before and after the light beam is fired. You will feel some heat after the beam of light is absorbed into your skin, but it will only last for a split second. It feels similar to a small rubber band snapping your skin; the thin areas on the body are more sensitive and tend to feel more of the effects from the machine.
THE BEST PART IS…
There is NO DOWNTIME! You can literally go to work after receiving an IPL, as long as you wear sunscreen. After an IPL treatment you will be able to go to lunch with a friend if you wanted because there is no downtime to the treatment. It’s a quick and easy treatment completed by certified professionals with guaranteed results.
