Clear, alabaster skin is something poets wrote about and painters tried to capture in their portraits of history’s great beauties. Now, that feminine ideal is within reach with this safe medically-tested procedure. There are two types of light-based technologies used at Avenue Skin Care in Yorkville. There is LED Photofacial, which is cool and relaxing. And there is IPL (Intense Pulse Light), a more intense treatment that delivers a bright blast of light at high energy levels. Both can be used for several conditions, and have been proven with medical research. We will advise you about which treatment is best for your skin condition.
The IPL treatment feels like a quick pinch of the skin.
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, a series of 3-6 treatment sessions is recommended. After a treatment your face will be flushed, feel warm and the brown spots will appear darker. This darkness flakes off in 3-10 days. Microdermabrasion is a popular procedure 7-10 days after your IPL.
