IPL & Fractional Resurfacing

 

What is IPL?

Intense pulsed lighting (IPL) makes skin look fresh and youthful by rejuvenating skin cells. No downtime. Photo facials are in a series of 4 and done in 3 week intervals. The IPL helps remove:

  • Rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Large skin pores
  • Sun damage
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Melasma
  • Brown spots

The Treatment

During treatment, cool gel is applied and then a pulse of light stimulates the area. You may feel a “rubber band” snap during the treatment, but it is very tolerable. Following the treatment you may experience redness but this dissipates after 24-48 hours. Smoother more youthful skin is noticeable in as little as 1 treatment!

What is Fractional Resurfacing?

Fractional Resurfacing rejuvenates dull and loose skin to give you a tighter and more youthful appearance. This treatment is deeper and treats more difficult problem areas. It requires more down time than the IPL and offers more drastic results. Skin may take up to 3 days for redness to reduce and minimal swelling to go away.

  • Rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Large skin pores
  • Sun damage
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Melasma
  • Brown spots

The Treatment 

Like the IPL, a laser is used to focus intense beams of light into the top layers of skin. This stimulates the collagen development and removes the top layers of damaged and old skin. One 30 minute treatment offers noticeable results with follow-up procedures every 6 months.
