Say Goodbye to Hyperpigmentation & Dark Spots!

Summer is almost over, and you know what that means. It’s time for fall beauty treatments like chemical peels and IPL (photofacial).

Beach trips, baseball games, and all types of fun in the sun have reaped havoc on your skin. Dark spots on the face, neck, and decollete’ need to go away! Now that the weather is cooling down, it’s the perfect time to undo summer sun damage.

One of our most popular spa treatments is IPL (intense pulsed light). This FDA approved treatment is also commonly known as a photofacial. IPL safely and comfortably fades the appearance of rosacea, spider veins, skin imperfections caused by sun damage, age spots and uneven skin tones.  This treatment involves little downtime, and discomfort is minimal. The number of treatments can be determined by your esthetician.

Don’t forget fall is also a great time for chemical peels (our estheticians have different strengths of peels suited to your needs.)  Skinceuticals Advanced Corrective Peel is an ideal peel for people with all skin types who are concerned with mild to moderate signs of aging, stubborn discoloration, and uneven skin tone and texture.

Immediately after the advanced corrective peel, the skin may appear red and feel sensitive. In the days following the peel, the skin may experience some flaking, sheet peeling, and possibly a temporary darkening if surface pigment that will flake off. Your skin type and skin condition will determine the degree of peeling. You can expect light flaking or peeling to last for 2-6 days depending on the intensity of the treatment.
