What specifically does it treat?
IPL treats age spots, uneven pigmentation, broken capillaries, facial veins, flushing and rosacea. It also reduces pore size and improves skin tone.

IPL has been FDA-approved as safe and effective for over thirteen years.

How long do treatments take and does it hurt?
Each treatment takes about 15-30 minutes with minimal to no discomfort.

The face, neck, chest, shoulders, hands and legs can all be safely treated.

What should I expect after treatment?

  • Sunspots/Sun Damage: The sunspots will darken after treatment and flake off the skin within 1-2 weeks.
  • Rosacea: Skin tone will have less redness within a week after treatment.
  • Spider Veins: Vessels may disappear after treatment or fade after 10-14 days.

532nm Laser Peel

532nm LASER PEEL is a non-ablative treatment used to “clean up” unwanted pigment and stimulate collagen remodeling to treat the following:

  • Rough Skin Texture
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Large Pores

FAQ’s

What is a 532nm Laser Peel?
This non-ablative laser treatment safely and effectively "cleans up" any unwanted pigment and at the same time, stimulates collagen production at the dermal level to dramatically improve your skin appearance and over all texture.

Does the treatment hurt? How long does it take?
Some discomfort may be experienced during this procedure. An anesthetic (numbing) cream is used to make your treatment a comfortable experience. Treatments are typically completed in 45 minutes.

How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is typically what most patients require for dramatic results. Occasionally, a second treatment may be recommended for a more thorough clean-up.

How long do the results last?
We recommend that you get retreated in a year’s time to maintain results.

What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, the skin may feel warm or sunburned and temporary redness may occur which typically resolves in 2 to 3 days. Pigmented areas get darker and flake off over 1 to 2 weeks. Avoid picking, scratching or removing flakes. We also recommend that you use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater and avoid tanning during this time for the best possible results.

Gradual pigment lightening may also occur for one month or so after treatment. While this procedure is called a Laser Peel, the skin rarely peels. Any residual discomfort may be alleviated by ice pack. Aloe Vera gel and hydrocortisone 1% may also be used if any skin irritation occurs.
