Uneven skin tone is a common aesthetic problem we all notice as we age especially if we have an active lifestyle out in the sun. After years of unprotected sun exposure you may notice brown spots, freckles, and/or sun spots. You may also notice unwanted vessels around your nose or rosacea (redness/flushing) on your cheeks. These common concerns can now be removed and you can reveal your glowing complexion with skin revitalization.
Skin revitalization is ideal for reducing the appearance of pigment on your face, chest or hands including age spots, sun damage, freckles or birthmarks. It is also the perfect solution for unwanted vessels on your face including spider veins, broken vessels or rosacea (redness/flushing of the cheeks). In just a few quick treatment sessions you will see a reduction in the appearance of brown spots and vessels leaving you with a more even skin tone and beautiful looking skin.

Am I a good candidate for skin revitalization?
IPL can be safely used on most skin types. During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.
What type of result can I expect?
You can expect to see a decrease in the appearance of brown spots, sun damage and vessels for a more even skin tone. You will see a continued improvement over the first 6 weeks after your treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
Depending on the size of the area and the condition being treated, the sessions could range anywhere from 5-30 minutes.
What does the treatment feel like?
Most people feel only a slight “snap” like a rubber band followed by warmth of your skin. You will also feel cooling on your skin as the handpiece glides over the treatment area to help in providing a comfortable session.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the condition being treated, 1-3 treatment sessions are recommended for desired results.
How far apart are treatment sessions?
Treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-4 weeks apart.
How much does the treatment cost?

How does it work?
Specialized pulses of optimized light are used to target brown spots, sun damage and vessels without harming the surrounding skin. These imperfections absorb the energy delivered to your skin causing them to slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process.
How quickly will I recover?
You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
Light-based skin revitalization is a non-surgical treatment that will improve your skin’s appearance quickly and easily.
