Our IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial, combined with radio frequency energy, targets discoloration in the skin, including veins, age spots, sun damage and uneven skin tone. The high energy light waves also induce natural collagen production, rejuvenating the skin and reducing visible signs of aging.
The light waves kill bacteria under the skin that create acne leading to fewer breakouts. While simultaneously evening the skin’s tone and killing bacteria beneath the skin. This laser treatment also targets spider veins.
