    (pregnancy mask)

  • Enlarged Pores

Where can we treat?

Skin can be treated almost anywhere on the body. Most commonly the face, hands, neck, and chest are treated.

How does it work?

Photo-rejuvenation utilizes Intense Pulsed fluoresced Light to target pigments in the skin for quick reduction or removal. Heat is generated so that the skin naturally ejects brown pigments (melanin) or absorbs red pigments (hemoglobin). The Harmony AFT supplies a broad spectrum of light that reaches deep down to the collagen level of the skin allowing for improvement of skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles. This also destroys hair follicles for hair removal. Our spa has two laser machines, allowing us to treat a wide spectrum of the population with various skin pigmentations. This allows for less painful treatments.

Having it done:

The laser is passed over the entire treatment area, often multiple times, for maximum results. These treatments receive a high degree of patient satisfaction because there is little downtime, discomfort is minimal, and treatment times are short.

IPL Photofacials are often combined with microdermabrasion and/or chemical peels. For best results, a vitamin infusion is done before the first treatment.

How many Treatments will I need?

Ten treatments are recommended while clients usually begin to see notable results after the first treatment. Frequency and amount of treatments will depend on the amount of skin damage, or severity of the skin condition. Treatment for the face usually requires 30 minutes per treatment. Repeat the 30-minute treatment in a series of six to eight treatments, at one to four-week intervals.
