IPL Photofacial

Safely and comfortably fade the appearance of skin imperfections caused by the sun, and uneven skin tones caused by brown and red spots (such as rosacea, broken capillaries, and hyperpigmentation). The combined bi-polar radio frequency and light energies of this technology precisely and safely target pigmented lesions such as freckles and age spots. Vascular lesions are also lightened and gradually fade.

What to expect:

  • Treatment time varies according to the area being treated.
  • May have some redness/pinkness and swelling, which usually subsides within a few hours.
  • 3 treatments, scheduled 4-6 week apart, are recommended for best results.
  • Consults are required prior to booking treatment.Β 
  • Avoid the sun for 4-6 weeks before and after treatment. DO NOT come in with an active tan or sunburn.
  • Please arrive for the appointment with the area to be treated clean and if in aΒ hair-bearing area, shaven.
  • If treating the face, stop using Retin-A (or any retinols or tretinoins), bleaching creams (hydroquinone products), or any acids on your face for 48 hours before and after treatments.
  • Keep the treated area well covered and avoid sitting in any sunlight.
  • You will notice some redness and swelling of treated areas (usually looks like cat scratches). This usually resolves within a couple hours. This may feel like a slight sunburn and may itch up to a couple of days. Occasionally, a bruise may form within the first week of treatment. This should resolve within 1-2 weeks. Do keep areas of bruising protected from the sun as sun exposure may cause permanent discoloration.
  • For soothing purposes, you may apply cold aloe or cortisone cream to the areas.Β DO NOT apply ice to the areas as this may encourage hyperpigmentation.
  • Always wear a sunscreen when any sun exposure is possible. 30 SPF with UVA/UVB protection is best.
  • Blisters, however uncommon, may sometimes occur. IF this does occur do not allow the skin to form scabs. Keep the treated area moist with some form of ointment (bacitracin, aquafor or vaseline). We do not recommend any neomycin, products as they can cause allergic reaction after prolonged use.
  • If treatment on the face; 24 hours after treatment the skin should be ready for makeup. IF there are any open or blistered areas, do not use makeup on those areas until completely healed.
  • If you are using a bleaching cream (hydroquinone) only use at night and sun block during the day.
  • Refrain from any activities that may increase circulation to the area such as exercise, excessive heat from the sun, Jacuzzis or saunas for 1-3 days.

Laser Hair Removal

Our laser permanently reduces unwanted hair by delivering short, safe bursts of pulsed light directed at the target site. We can remove hair permanently on the upper lip, chin, legs, bikini, back, underarms and most other areas.

Recommended 4-6 treatments, 1-3 months apart.

What to expect:

  • Prior to your treatment, you and your technician will meet to discuss your treatment goals. Treatment of the upper lip takes a few minutes, whereas the back or both legs can take about 30 minutes.
  • The number of treatments depends on the location and the life cycle of your hair. Because every hair grows for a period of time, you may need to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been treated while growing.
  • Clinical studies have shown that 4-6 treatments are needed, and typically the intervals between treatments are 1 to 3 months.
  • Treatment is most efficient on dark hair. Light blonde, red, grey, or white hairs may not respond to treatment. Most skin colors can be treated.
  • It is important not to pluck, tweeze, wax, or use hair removal creams during the 4 weeks before treatment. It is also important to avoid tanning (including the sun, tanning salons, or self tanning products) before and during the treatment period.
