IPL PHOTOTHERAPY

These advanced treatments are tailored to treat major skin conditions and deliver maximum results. With just a quick pulse of light we can diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries and remove unwanted facial and body hair.

Browse through our selection and descriptions to see which treatment suits your skin’s needs most. We offer free consultations with our Skin Expert who will analyze your skin condition, outline the benefits, and help you select the best treatment option.

We use the Sharplight Formax system that features a patented Dynamic Pulse Control (DPC) technology. It delivers quick pulses of light into the skin on areas of the face, neck, arms, hands, and legs. The depth of light penetration is measured according to the condition being treated, thereby targeting only selected areas and layers of the skin.

You may have heard that phototherapy can be painful, but with our Sharplight Formax system, you can rest assured that your service will be a breeze. All hand pieces for the system feature a cooling window that cools your skin to a safe temperature during the service, meaning your skin feels cool and comfortable throughout!
