You will love the results!
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a state of the art system, and the latest technique in photo-facial and hair removal therapy. The IPL system delivers high intensity, smooth and powerful pulses of light — not lasers — that greatly enhance the results of skin rejuvenation or hair removal therapy.
- Intense Pulsed Light photo-rejuvenation is an effective treatment for brown spots, redness, age spots, broken blood vessels, Rosacea and scarring.
- Laser Therapies like Laser Transform and Laser Polish are effective for wrinkles, textured spots, skin tightening and rebuilding collagen.
For skin therapy, Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Therapies both stimulate new collagen growth, resulting in smoother and more even, healthier skin. The results of IPL and Laser Therapies can be dramatic and treatments are customized to your specific concerns.
Who is a good candidate?
IPL is an excellent choice for men and women of all ages who are considering treatment for various hair or skin problems, including:
- Brown or age spots
- Facial spider veins

What to expect
Our Registered Nurse or state-licensed Medical Aesthetican closely examines each client during an initial consultation to determine what treatments best match your desired goals. Our providers are Certified Aesthetic Laser Operators by the National Council on Laser Certification which is considered the highly level of training and expertise for laser therapies. Rest assured you are in expert hands.
The treatments may require application of a topical gel or anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Our certified laser operator providers will then use the hand-held IPL or laser device to direct the treatment in your area of concern.
IPL is a simple and fast technique with minimal discomfort used to treat freckles, photodamage, age spots, and redness. Clients typically feel some warm sensations, or a very mild stinging during the treatment. Cold air is used to make the treatment comfortable. Occasionally, you may have some mild swelling after treatment. Because you are treated by an expert, you will need less treatments than providers who have less experience.
Laser therapies like Laser Transform and Laser Polish are used to resurface the skin to improve wrinkles, textured spots and lesions and tighten skin. The treatment is customized for each individual with no downtime to a few days of crusting and dryness. Consider that the more days of transition you have back to normal, you will have a better, more dramatic result.
Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Therapies can be combined on the same day so that you can get improvement of wrinkles, brown spots, textured lesions and more. In addition, skin tightening can be done at the same time. Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Therapies can be used on the face, neck, chest, decolletage, arms, hands, and back. IPL and laser are highly satisfying with dramatic results that last.
Recovery and Maintenance
Some pinkness or redness may result in or around the treatment area. There may be some mild swelling, which will go away after a few days. It is important to protect the treated area from sunlight, tanning beds or other UV light.
Results with IPL and Laser Therapies are typically seen after one or two treatments, depending on the nature of the problem. Some skin problems or hair removal will require several treatments before the desired outcome is achieved. Laser hair removal typically takes 6-8 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Treatments usually take 30-60 minutes, depending on which area is being treated.
