Say Goodbye to Skin Spots!

IPL Photofacial Northbrook

Are you sick of brown spots popping up all summer long?  Do you have red spots, liver spots, or rosacea?  Are SPF and others treatments not doing the trick?  Whether they’re on your face, legs, chest, arms, hands or anywhere else with too much sun exposure, IPL Photofacial can erase hyperpigmentation.

How does it work? 

Hyperpigmentation is a form of skin damage usually caused by over exposure to the sun.  These brown spots are the most common sign of premature aging.  Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or more commonly known as Photofacial, targets dark pigment under the skin’s surface to reduce discoloration.  It reduces other visible signs of premature aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, red spots, and visible veins by working deep beneath the skin’s surface to constrict blood vessels to lessen the appearance of these imperfections.

What should I expect?

After your first IPL treatment, you’ll immediately notice a redness to your skin tone and a dark appearance on the targeted pigment.  A few days later, you will experience gradual darkening of the pigment and dryness (yes, that’s normal!).  You can expect this dryness/flakiness to persist for about 10 days post treatment.  We highly encourage patients to have a microdermabrasion 14 days post IPL; a light exfoliation of the top layers of skin will help alleviate dryness and an enriched moisturizing mask will aid in rehydrating the skin.

For best results, the SKINMEDISPA recommends 4 Photofacial treatments (one per month) and a microdermabrasion follow-up two weeks after each.  Call today for a complimentary skin analysis with one of our licensed aestheticians.

Let’s talk about unwanted body hair

What could you do in 72 days? Travel around the world? Walk from Chicago to San Francisco and back? Shave?

That’s right! The average woman spends 72 days of her life shaving. That isn’t the only downside. Besides the amount of time, the cost adds up to nearly $11,000 in our lifetime spent on shaving needs, not to mention the irritation of ingrown hairs, accidental cuts, and the short amount of time that you actually enjoy before the hair grows back. Yes, we know that not everyone shaves so what about waxing? Costs to keep up with waxing can be astronomical, close to $23,000 depending on what part of the body you wax, with the inconvenience of having to go back every 3-4 weeks. While some people say that they see a depletion of hair, many women frequently say that it can take years for that to be the case.

So what is the alternative? The SKINMEDISPA has your answer: laser hair removal.

Women spend twice as much money on shaving than on laser hair removal. This, combined with the visible benefits of smoother skin and almost immediate and noticeable results makes laser hair removal a clear choice. In fact, doctors say that after your first session you will see a 10-20% depletion of hair in the area treated.

Additionally, you can spread out these treatments between 4-6 weeks depending on the area you want focused on. This means less time wasted on hair removal regimens and more time for yourself, maybe even sneaking in a facial at their spa!
