Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal is an FDA approved treatment for permanent reduction or removal of unwanted hair. The root of the hair follicle heats up by a light source that causes the hair follicle to die. Large areas can be treated in a short period of time. This is a very cost effective and efficient method of hair removal. There is no down time with this treatment. IPL hair removal typically takes 8 treatments and is done every 4-6 weeks. Hair grows in three stages, thus we need to allow time between treatments for hair to be in an active growing stage when the treatment is done. Common areas of treatment include face, neck, underarms, chest, bikini/brazilian, legs and back.
Sun damage, rosacea, and broken capillaries take away the youthful look and smooth skin that you once had. Our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Rejuvenation treatment will restore your skin’s fresh look and youthfulness.
IPL penetrates the skin and the dilated blood vessels or pigmented lesions absorb the heat. The heat damages the vessel or the lesion and then it is absorbed, flakes off, or fades. Sessions are quick, only 15-30 minutes to complete the entire face. It feels like a rubber band snap as the pulse releases. The skin may briefly appear flushed, brown spots may appear darker at first but then fade or flake off and the skin appears younger and smoother. Treatments may need to be repeated for the best results.
Time, poor diet, sun, and stress all make the surface of the skin suffer damage and give it a dull appearance. By using a diamond tip applicator that attaches to a vacuum, we gently exfoliate the damaged skin cells to reveal fresh new cells. The skin appears brighter and make-up goes on smoother.
The best results occur when several treatments are done spaced 1-2 weeks apart. This is a painless form of skin enhancement and is effective for clogged pores and blackheads, large pores, fine lines, rough, thick or dry skin, acne scarring, uneven skin color and dull patches. Increase the benefits of your facial by adding a microdermabrasion to any of our facials.

A technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
