As we enter the New Year and settling into our new location in Brighton, we are happy to introduce new treatments using IPL technology. IPL or Intense Pulsed Light Technology utilizes specific wavelengths of light to target various skin conditions. Our licensed estheticians Irina and Lana preform various treatments using ILP that include hair removal, skin rejuvenation, pigmentation therapy, acne therapy and vascular therapy.
Hair removal – pain free treatment for permanent hair reduction to eliminate unwanted hair. The light is adsorbed by the melanin in the hair, with highest concentration of it located in the bulb (root) of the hair. As the heat from the light weakens the bulb, hair falls out and unable to re-grow in the same place. Number of treatments will be determent by your esthetician.
Skin rejuvenation – is a process that improves signs of aging including wrinkles, loss of skin tone and elasticity. The wavelengths of light penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production which is needed to smooth out wrinkles and make the skin more elastic. Your esthetician will determine number and frequency of the treatment for the best results.
Pigmentation Therapy – eliminates dark spots (freckles and age spots) caused by sun exposure. The pulses of light are absorbed by the excess melanin and causes melanin sells to break up, leaving the skin more even. Number of treatments will depend on the level of sun damage and will be determent by your esthetician. To prevent further damage use at least SPF 30 moisturizer every day.
Acne therapy – treats active acne, prevents future acne breakouts and improves acne scars. The pulsating light penetrates through the tissues and destroys acne caused by bacteria in the skin and overproduction of oil by the oil glands. In treating acne scars IPL reduces redness and discoloration for more even skin tone. Number of treatment will be determent by your esthetician.
Vascular Therapy – treats dilated capillaries and cherry spots. The light is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels. The heat injures the vessel walls causing the vessels to collapse. The collapsed vessels will be discarded by the body in the natural way. With each treatment the effected aria will be less red. Minor vascular abnormalities could be treated with only one session while others would requires several treatments and your esthetician will determine that.
