What are IPL Photofacial Treatments?

Broad-spectrum light is harnessed and directed into the skin to break down damaged cells. IPL treatments begin with a cooling gel applied to the target area. This provides a conduit for the light to focus on only the specific areas of concern. Targeted pulses hit unwanted pigments, broken capillaries or body hair desired for removal. This quick and effective treatment breaks down the damaged cells allowing healthy, undamaged cells to be revealed and rejuvenated.

IPL treatments are quick and easy. There is relatively no downtime following the treatment, so you are able to resume your regular routine right away.
