A Fountain of Youth for Your Face

Two of our popular treatments, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Chemical Peels, help rejuvenate your face for a more youthful, refreshed and healthy appearance.

Which one is right for you?

IPL therapy is a skin rejuvenation process that uses intense pulses of light that penetrate deep into the skin. The light prompts a response from the blood vessels and collagen which makes the skin look younger, smoother and more supple. It’s great for treating sun damage, rosacea, blotchiness and discoloration, large pores and fine lines.

Chemical peels are a wide-ranging group of specially created acid solutions that help remove damaged surface layers of skin. The type, concentration and layers of the peel depend on the patient’s needs. Chemical peels reveal younger, healthier, softer skin lying beneath the surface. They’re excellent for treating acne scars, uneven skin pigmentation and fine lines. They also enhance collagen production.

The best candidates for IPL are people with light, fair and untanned skin. It’s not recommended for people with tanned or naturally dark skin such as African-Americans and people of Greek or Italian descent, because they sometimes experience changes in skin pigmentation following an IPL treatment.

The candidacy for chemical peels isn’t as restrictive. Because several different kinds (and strengths) of peels exist, there are virtually no restrictions regarding a person’s ethnic background and skin coloration. However, especially in the case of deep peels, some time and commitment to the recovery process is required. We offer a professional skin care line which can help speed your recovery and protect your investment.
