IPL Laser Treatments
Excess body or facial hair can be a problem for both women and men. Frequent hair removal chores including shaving, depilatories, plucking, and waxing are time-consuming, often painful, and always inconvenient. At best, they offer only temporary results, for some only a few hours. Laser technology has brought us a better way, a safe, long-lasting way to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body, leaving skin feeling smooth and healthy.
Lasers and IPL (intense pulsed light) devices, (which are not technically lasers but work on a similar principal), can be used for hair reduction and skin treatments such as improving skin tone, fading sun damage and acne. Permanent hair reduction involves the use of either a single wavelength of light (laser) or a flash of light containing hundreds of wavelengths (IPL or broadband light BBL).
Melanin within the hair follicles is targeted, heating and damaging the follicles in an active growth cycle. Only hairs that have color can be treated, so white and grey hairs won’t respond. Success of the treatment depends on your coloring, with laser generally working best on fair skin and dark hair. Fairer skin and red hair will respond to a lesser degree and those with darker skin can be treated, with a great deal of care. All the experts agree that laser or IPL treatment, in the hands of an experienced and trained operator can be very effective. It’s the best way to remove unwanted hair, as long as you’re a “suitable candidate”.
IPL Photo Facials
An IPL photo facial can treat a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, broken capillaries, and facial redness. An IPL photo facial delivers a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through the special handpiece. The number of IPL photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition you’re treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds.
Photo facials work best in conjunction with a regular skin care routine.
Sun exposure, acne or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. If you want your skin to look smoother and younger, consider a chemical peel, which uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. This specialized treatment has been clinically proven to improve fine lines and wrinkles, to clarify skin tone and texture and clear skin blemishes. The skin will look and feel smooth, balanced with restored clarity.
During a tattoo removal treatment, laser light is applied to the tattooed area of the skin. Laser light reacts with the ink in the tattoo, and breaks it down. The tattoo ink absorbs the laser energy, and shatters into smaller ink particles.
The broken-down ink is then absorbed by the body’s immune system, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create. After several treatments, more and more of the ink shatters, leaving the skin free of ink.
Automated micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance.
The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin.
