Beautiful Skin Made Simple With IPL PHOTOFACIAL
Photofacial is a unique non-abrasive and non-invasive rejuvenation of your skin using the remarkable technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). The IPL Photofacial can improve the signs of sun damage, rosacea and brown spots on the face, chest, hands and body. It is broad spectrum light that can target both redness and brown spots in your skin, and can improve skin texture and pore size. 3-5 treatment sessions lasting about 20 minutes each will provide you with beautiful results.
IPL, in its simplest form, is short flashes of safe, bright light to treat specific skin conditions. The improvements gained by Britta’s laser technology are more than just cosmetic because the laser gently stimulates production of new collagen. It is a unique non-ablative process that does not wound the skin surface.
There is no recuperation time – with an IPL Photofacial you can return to work or resume your normal activities on the same day. You will notice a gradual, natural-looking improvement in your skin with time. Your skin will be smoother, firmer and clearer. Improved skin tone and texture give a more youthful appearance.

How many treatments will I need?
Typically 3 for full face to see dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or densely covered areas of sun damage.
What happens after treatment?

Over the course of the next week darkened spots will fade will flake off. Our professional staff will consult with you for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
Will the spots reappear over time.?
