IPL Photofacial

IPL is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment used to treat large areas of the skin, utilizing the latest advances in laser technology. Photo rejuvenation treatments penetrate deep below the surface of the skin to help start the production of collagen and other connective tissues.

Using pulsed light energy, IPL can successfully address:

  • Sunspots
  • Age Spots
  • Red spots
  • Photodamage

IPL treatment costs $300 for the full face. Three to five treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results. We offer a 10% discount for packages of three treatments ($810).

Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing

Full facial treatment offers dramatic improvement in skin tone and texture, with collagen improvements continuing for 3 months after procedure.  Full facial treatment $1200.  Several days of "down-time" should be scheduled to accommodate early healing.
