PHOTOFACIALS / IPL
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a light-based technology that delivers light in a broad spectrum, and is absorbed by both melanin (brown) and heme (red) pigments. In series, treatments with IPL removes unwanted pigments and signs of sun and other damage, and restores a youthful, bright complexion.
Max-G: The Icon with Max-G handpiece is arguably the best IPL device available: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) delivers light across a variety of wavelengths in the visible spectrum. The light is absorbed by both skin pigment and vascular lesions, allowing these areas to lift and clear from the tissue. This device is the ideal treatment for sun and skin damage and for the removal of facial vessels, and rosacea. This treatment using the Max-G is called a PhotoFacial.
