A Photo Facial is ideal for those in need of targeting brown spots due to hormonal changes, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, redness and rosacea. It is an excellent alternative to harsh topical treatments and peels. The treatment is less invasive and very safe and effective for erasing unwanted and unattractive skin tone or spots. It is the perfect fall and winter treatment and can be incorporated into a skin care routine annually.
IPL stands for Intense pulse light, which is emitted with a laser that targets the melanin in the epidermis. The light is converted to heat energy and destroys the deposited melanin cells, temporarily making the spots darker. The spots are sloughed upwards to the surface of the skin, eventually turning into a coffee-ground-like texture that eventually flakes off revealing a more even skin tone. This even skin tone is a sign of a youthful appearance and helps erase signs of aging.
