Take Years Off Your Complextion
Between the sun, harsh cleansers, pollution, and aging, our skin can become dull and wrinkled (two of our least favorite words). Thankfully, with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, you don’t have to be stuck with skin issues. Think of IPL as a multi-tasker—from age spots to sun damage—it can pretty much tackle it all.
The IPL Photofacial treatment uses short blasts of high-intensity light to produce younger-looking skin that’s firmer and more even in tone and texture. With little recovery time and no surgery, you’re going to start wondering if this anti-aging, skin rejuvenating, sun damage-reversing treatment is magic. (It’s not, it’s just science.)
