Before the treatment, our team will first apply a cool gel to your skin. Our provider will then handpick specific filters selected for your skin concern and skin type. After optimizing settings, we will apply broad-spectrum light pulses to the various skin layers. Though it can feel like tiny rubber bands flicking the skin, the procedure is very comfortable.

COMPLIMENTARY TREATMENT OPTIONS

BOTOX

Botox is a safe and effective injectable treatment for expression lines. Your skin will appear  smoother and more youthful by relaxing the muscles that produce wrinkles. Using Botox in conjunction with IPL can increase collagen production and help with creating an even and smoother skin tone.

DERMAL FILLERS

Dermal fillers consist of a gel-like substance composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance produced by the human body. Hyaluronic acid possesses a unique property in its ability to attract water, and it is this characteristic that enables dermal fillers to effectively address saggy skin concerns. By attracting and retaining moisture, dermal fillers contribute to the restoration of facial volume and hydration, concurrently stimulating collagen production for a more youthful and revitalized appearance.

CHEMICAL PEELS

Chemical peels can help expedite the process of sloughing off the damaged skin, allowing new, fresh skin to replace it. This can give you a more even skin tone following treatment, while the Intense Pulsed Light targets the deeper layers where the pigmentation is present.

MICRONEEDLING

Utilizing tiny needles to stimulate collagen production, this procedure aims to promote firmer and more youthful-looking skin. The benefits encompass increased collagen production, a smoother skin texture, and improvement in the appearance of scars. This method offers a non-invasive approach to address saggy skin and enhance overall skin quality.

EXOSOMES

IPL addresses surface-level indications of aging, whereas exosome-based microneedling targets deeper cellular levels. When combined, they offer a thorough method for addressing fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles. While microneedling with exosomes can enhance the general health of the skin, making it more resilient and less prone to flushing and irritation, IPL helps control redness and rosacea. The combination of these procedures results in a healthier, more youthful complexion with better texture and tone by encouraging the creation of collagen and cellular renewal.
