Laser Treatment for Dark Spots & Rosacea2024-02-09T17:59:55+00:00





Laser Treatments for Dark Spots & Rosacea

Intense pulsed light treatments, otherwise known as IPL treatments or a photofacial, are designed specifically for providing amazing color-correcting benefits to the skin. Using RF energy and brief pulses of broad-spectrum light, the skin absorbs the optical light and works to disperse visibly red and brown-pigmented areas of the skin without causing damage to its surface.

Before your IPL treatment, a topical numbing anesthetic will be applied prior to your procedure for your comfort. An IPL treatment can range anywhere from several seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the severity of your concerns. While there is no downtime needed after an IPL treatment, you may notice a temporary darkening of your skin within the treated area that may be difficult to conceal with makeup for the first few days. During your initial consultation, one of our laser technicians will work with you to develop a treatment plan and advise how many treatments you will need to achieve the flawless, even complexion you desire.

The elōs Plus laser IPL treatments are ideal for anyone suffering from the appearance of:

  • Sunspots

  • Age Spots

  • Rosacea

  • Broken Capillaries 

  • Spider Veins

About the The elōs Plus Laser:

The elōs Plus laser is a revolutionary new aesthetic system that combines optical energy, such as laser or pulsed light with bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver safe, comfortable, and transformative treatments. These proprietary dual thermal energies allow for this laser to raise the temperature of the underlying layers of your skin without harming the skin’s surface. In combining these energies, the elōs Plus laser uses less optical power to improve the safety for all skin types undergoing treatment.

The addition of RF energy allows your elōs Plus treatment to penetrate deeper into your skin while reducing the optical energy typically needed with traditional lasers to achieve lasting results. Unlike many lasers today, RF energy is safe to use on all skin types and tones, even for hair removal treatments. An integrated sapphire contact cooling system also ensures that the surface of your skin is kept cool and comfortable throughout your treatment.

Before & After:


How does IPL Photofacial work?2023-09-12T16:15:26+00:00

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-laser therapy that involves shining highly concentrated and intense beams of light intermittently on the surface of the skin. Photo refers to the beam of light, and facial refers to the face and/or neck region. The pulses of light target pigment and vascular irregularities, smoothing out the skin’s tone and texture.

IPL therapy helps to reduce the effects of aging, leaving clients with younger, clearer, and healthier-looking skin. It is not to be confused with laser therapy. Whereas laser therapy uses one particular wavelength of light, IPL therapy produces a spectrum of light.

Is an IPL Photofacial safe?2023-09-12T16:16:23+00:00

Yes, it is. When performed correctly by a certified, experienced technician, IPL Photofacial therapy is both safe and effective.

As a professional medial spa, we will not perform any procedures without first assessing: your complete medical history; your current health condition; and any potential you may have for complications. Additionally, we provide all clients with protective eyewear that must be worn during treatment.

Is IPL Photofacial treatment painful?2023-09-12T16:17:16+00:00

Most clients liken IPL to the gentle snap of an elastic band against the skin. Others experience it as a very short pinprick. While no anesthetic is required, we do cool the skin, which helps to minimize any discomfort.

What are the benefits of IPL Photofacial treatment?2023-09-12T16:18:01+00:00

IPL Photofacial treatments require no anesthetic and they involve little or no downtime. As few as one or two treatments can reduce spots, smooth uneven pigmentation, help repair broken facial capillaries and veins, and reduce the redness associated with rosacea. Additional treatments will continue to improve tone, texture, and stimulate the dermis to produce more collagen.

What are the possible side effects of IPL Photofacial treatment?2023-09-12T16:19:18+00:00

By definition, IPL therapy involves short, intense pulses of light being delivered to the skin. As a result, you may experience small raised bumps and redness in the treatment area shortly after your treatment. This will subside in a few days and is no cause for alarm.

How long is a typical treatment?2023-09-12T16:19:56+00:00

A typical treatment can last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Because there is little or no downtime, you can have an IPL Photofacial during your lunch break.

How many treatments will I need?2023-09-12T16:20:40+00:00

The ideal number of treatments will depend upon your skin and the issues you wish to address. We usually book a series of five treatments for you to achieve optimum results.
