What does IPL treat?
Removes most brown and red pigmentation
Improves dull complexions, large pores, red flushing skin and rosacea
Gives skin a smoother, more even-toned look
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Treatments can alleviate multiple dermatologic conditions. The treatments are safe, effective, and can be applied to most skin types.
Delivering gentle, subtle improvement, IPL gives your skin a younger appearance. Your skin will appear naturally even-toned and healthy without the artificial look of other cosmetic treatments.
How does it work?
IPL is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area without damaging the skin. The light penetrates the sub-surface skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by pigmentation. The heat repairs the vessel or lesion and the body begins its natural healing process.
What to Expect?
IPL photo-rejuvenation treatments range from 15-30 minutes. First, the treated area is cleansed and a gel is applied. The light pulse is then delivered with a tolerable sensation. Most clients describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. Your skin may seem more sensitive and you have some swelling, but these side-effects are normal signs of healing and will resolve in 48 hours or less.
How many treatments are necessary?
Treatment generally involves a series of three sessions. While some clients see significant improvement in two or three treatments, others may require more. To maintain results, clients may opt for follow-up treatments.
Are there any side effects?Side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment the skin may appear flushed, brown pigmented spots may appear darker and capillaries may be more visible. To help guarantee the best results, limit your exposure to the sun for several weeks before and after treatments and always SPF.
What does Laser Skin Resurfacing treat?
The Spectrum Erbium Skin Resurfacing Laser is used for skin rejuvenation. You’ll see dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of your skin. Many people choose Laser Skin Resurfacing because it
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
Improves deeper wrinkles
Shrinks the appearance of pores
Fills in acne scars
Blends uneven pigmentation
Laser Skin Resurfacing is an aesthetic laser treatment that lifts away years from your face. It can help reverse the early signs of aging and helps counteract years of sun damage or acne scarring.
Laser Skin Resurfacing provides noticeable results, often in as little as one single treatment.
How long does it last?
The longevity of results is dependent on future aging, the effects of gravity and sun exposure.
How does it work?
Laser Skin Resurfacing uses an intense beam of light or laser energy directed at the area of skin being treated. This treats the outer most layer of the skin and the underlying dermis. The Laser stimulates new collagen growth to improve your skin’s texture and tone and fights fine lines and wrinkles.
Side Effects and Risks
Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments are safe and effective without injections or surgery. You can expect your skin to be red similar to a severe sunburn after the treatment. A numbing cream is used before the treatment is performed. You may also want to take an over-the-counter pain medication to make you more comfortable. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve quickly.
