In case your skin is showing negative signs of summer fun, IPL Phototherapy can help erase skin damage! Consult with our Medical Esthetician to find out if you are a candidate and take advantage of the winter months for the most optimal results of your treatment.
How does IPL work?
IPL technology uses a broad spectrum of light to reduce melanin which is excess pigment in the skin. After each treatment with IPL, the body begins to uplift melanin to the surface of the skin and naturally slough away damaged cells to replace them with new, younger skin cells. Results of IPL Phototherapy are observed after a series of 3-4 treatments.
What does IPL treat?
Capillaries (blood vessels)
Rosacea (global redness)
What to expect during the consultation:
Your IPL consultation with Master Esthetician, Rene Steele, will encompass all aspects of your skin health. A state-of-the-art photography system called the VISIA device is used at your consultation to capture three-dimensional images of your face under UV lighting. These photos reveal sun damage, wrinkles, red and brown spots, pore size, texture, and areas on the skin where bacteria accumulates. By monitoring your progress using the VISIA, you are able view photos taken from before your first IPL session to photos taken after your final IPL treatment. Above are a series of before and after photos for IPL Phototherapy treatment:
