Is your skin looking dull from the Summer Sun? IPL will quickly lighten and brighten your skin. Skin cycling, our specialized treatment is back by demand! It is a fast 15 minute appointment, done as a 5 week series, where you are treated once a week. There is no downtime or numbing required! Your skin will be pink after the treatment and the brown age/sun spots may appear darker and have a coffee ground appearance which will flake off in a few days. Sunscreen is applied and you may bring your make up to go back to work or play!
IPL stands for intense pulse light, where the light is filtered and creates heat that is absorbed by the red (vascular) and brown (melanin) pigment. This improves the appearance of sun spots and dilated blood vessels leading to broken capillaries and pink skin. As the skin heals from the mild trauma from the treatment, new collagen will be formed leading to smoother, bright and more even skin tone.
Did you know that you have 95,000,000 skin cells per square inch? As you age the rate the skin cells shed dramatically reduces, leading to dull sallow skin. IPL will bring the younger healthy cells to the surface. IPL has been clinically studied and an IPL series of 3-5 treatments followed by 1 IPL treatment every 6 months for 9 years will reverse aging, and as we know beautiful skin is always in style!
