Our laser facial corrects and prevents breakouts, rosacea, pigmentation and builds collagen deep within the skin. Our laser facials use a combination of nd:YAG laser and IPL to “reduce acne, wrinkles, and improve skin texture. The first part of the treatment is the YAG laser, which targets underneath the surface of the skin so bacteria, dirt, oil are destroyed, it decreases pore size, stimulates collagen and also helps with hyper-pigmentation. The second part is the IPL light, which works on everything on the surface of the skin including redness, inflammation. It will help to even out your skin tone. If you have more pigment in your skin, we’re going to omit the IPL portion and instead, add the hydration boost, a serum made of hyaluronic acid.
For anyone with darker skin tones, we have to be very careful with IPL, intense pulse light because it’s the energy in the settings and the number of passes that have to be modified in order to make sure we protect the amount of melanin that’s in the skin. So, for the standard laser facial, we remove the IPL treatment so as to not overheat the epidermal melanin, and we another pass of the Nd:YAG laser.
