Improve your skin’s brightness and unleash your inner glow
The laser technology emits quick pulses of intense light to the targeted area. IPL is the type of photofacial because it uses a broad-spectrum light source, making it an applicable treatment for a variety of skin problems, including acne, age spots, acne, hair removal and more. Intense pulsed light can penetrate to deeper layers of the skin beneath acne and fine lines without causing damage to the top layer.
When the pulses touch the skin, the energy is absorbed by pigment cells and turns into heat. This heat beneath the surface of the skin can destroy dark spots, freckles, hair follicles, and the bacteria that may be causing the acne.
With just a few sessions, IPL treatments can clear up even the most extreme cases of facial acne and destroy dark spots, is a safe and easy option for acne removal.
With IPL photofacial treatments, the acne, sun spots, and other skin conditions can be significantly reduced in just a matter of weeks.
