Skin Enhancement Using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Photorejuvenation with IPL
Photorejuvenation using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) offers dramatic improvement to multiple skin conditions to create younger and healthier looking skin. You’ll look and feel years younger. IPL treats a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively:
- Broken capillaries
- Spider Veins
- Benign brown pigment
- Ruddy complexion
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Mottled pigmentation
How does IPL work?
Blemishes from broken blood vessels and brown spots of pigment from sun damage respond to Intense Pulsed Light. The light is changed to heat energy as it reaches to the collagen beneath the skin surface.
How is IPL performed?
A cold gel is applied to the area to be treated. You will be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The practitioner gently applies the IPL handpiece to your skin and applies pulses of light. You may feel a slight stinging sensation like the gentle snapping of a small rubber band. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes and patients achieve the best results with a series of treatments.
Fast results with minimal side effects
Treatments are fast, involve very little discomfort and do not require anesthesia. Side effects following treatment are minimal, often causing only a slight reddening or swelling near the treated area that disappears within a few hours of the treatment. Prior to beginning any type of IPL and laser treatment, you and your practitioner will discuss the possible side effects of the procedure.

Hair Removal Using a Light Sheer Diode Laser
Laser hair removal is an effective solution to end the discomfort and inconvenience of the usual methods of hair removal, such as plucking, waxing, chemical depilatories or electrolysis. Our laser is a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair quickly, reliably and with minimal discomfort.
How is the treatment performed?
The laser emits pulses of concentrated light that is absorbed by pigment found in your hair follicles. The pulse lasts only a fraction of a second, just long enough to heat the hair and impede the follicle’s ability to regenerate. The process treats numerous follicles simultaneously, enabling treatment of even large areas quickly and effectively.
Safe and effective for all skin types
An important part of the treatment process is cooling the skin with a special contact-cooling handpiece to protect the upper layer of skin while the hair root is heated. It allows even the most sensitive skin to be treated safely. Treatment may cause some mild discomfort and may result in temporary redness and swelling around the hair follicles. Most patients return to normal activity right away.
Multiple treatments achieve maximum results
Laser treatments may last from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area to be treated. Several treatments provide optimal results as hairs in an active growth phase are most affected, and not all hairs are in this phase at the same time.
