IPL (Intense Pulse Light)

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light therapy is the ultimate approach to reducing or eliminating* unwanted hair. Unlike many other hair removal methods, photoepilation (hair removal using light) leaves your skin looking and feeling smooth and soft. Photo Rejuvenation is a series of IPL treatments that improve the appearance of Rosacea, flushing and sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, and photo aging. Treatment also improves the appearance of mild acne scars, reduces large pores, corrects dark circles under the eyes, and reduces fine lines. This exhilarating treatment involves no down time. Laser Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive, non surgical procedure that uses and infrared light source (Laser) to tighten skin. The natural aging process, along with sun damage and environmental damage, causes collagen fibers to stretch and loosen like worn rubber bands.

How does IPL hair reduction work?

Hair follicles are targeted with a pulsated light of highly concentrated energy. Energy is attracted to the pigment of the hair, the same way the sun is attracted to darker colors. The pulsated light works best on coarse, dark hair and with those of fair complexions, yet great results may be achieved by everyone. This is why number of treatments differs from person to person.

Treatment feels like the building heat and the snap of a rubber band but immediately ceases. You’ll notice the hairs falling out of the follicle 1-3 weeks after treatment. A series of treatments is required, yet a noticeable difference can be seen after 1 treatment. With each treatment you’ll progressively see fewer and fewer hairs, however it is necessary to complete a series in order to see the highest degree of hair reduction possible. Single touch up treatments may be necessary 6 months to a year after a series of treatments.Disclaimer: IPL cannot be performed on those with a skin tone of Fitz 5, sometimes 4.

Skin Tightening*

A Laser is used to heat the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten) to a give tighter, lifted smoother skin. As we age, our skin decreases in collagen production. This treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing process to cause the skin to heighten and jump start the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that’s been lost over time. Results of treatment remain but can depend on the nature of one’s skin as well as future skin care, aging and exposure to UV and sunlight. You will continue to see results over the next few months since our collagen production process is on going. Treatment is generally pain free with no down time. Most client feel only an increased warmth to their skin. Light is used to penetrate beneath the skin to break down and stimulate cell production of collagen, creating a more youthful look. Generally treatment takes about 45 minutes. This procedure is a non-invasive treatment with no injections or needles.

*Skin may remain pink or red for 24-48 hours. Some clients do not experience this side effect at all.

*Procedure is usually recommended in a series of 3, 1-2 weeks apart.
