IPL, short for intense pulsed light, is a popular treatment that is best-known for its ability to treat vascular conditions like broken capillaries ("spider veins") and the brown spots or "age spots" caused by sun damage. IPL also stimulates the production of collagen, which plumps up the skin and gives you a fresher look and refines or tightens large pores.
How Does IPL Work?
IPL uses short blasts of a polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin's surface, damaging either the melanin that makes up brown "age spots" or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The skin repairs the damage, leaving you with a more even skin tone. IPL is also touted to boost collagen and elastin.
It generally takes a series of treatments to see the best results, perhaps 3-6 treatments, usually a month apart.
Laser Genesis Skin Therapy uses advanced science to achieve vibrant, even skin tone and smooth texture in both men and women. Light penetrates deeply into the skin where collagen is manufactured, stimulating an increase of new collagen production. Unlike harsher methods, this is done without destroying the upper layers of skin (non-ablative). The Laser Genesis procedure safely, discretely and effectively treats scars, uneven textures, fine line wrinkles and large pores. The skin is gently warmed during this procedure, and daily activities may be resumed right away. This is truly a rejuvenating experience with no downtime.
The result is more even skin tone, tighter pores and a smoother skin texture. Laser also targets the microvasculature (tiny vessels) beneath the skin surface, decreasing diffuse redness and ruddy complexions.

What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels, also known as chemical resurfacing, are chemical treatments to produce an improved appearance of the face. Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photoaging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne, precancerous lesions, and discoloration (or dyschromia). Chemical peels produce controlled injury to the skin that promotes the growth of new skin with an improved appearance.
Unclog pores by first removing dead skin, then smoothing skin texture, and finally stimulating cell turn over and collagen production. Also includes, steam, extractions, serum, specialty mask and SPF.

The Eclipse MicroPen™ automated micro-needling device is the most effective, reliable instrument currently available for performing Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy (PCIT). Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. This elegant tool can be used for the successful treatment of a variety of indications:
Fine lines and moderate wrinkles
Uneven texture, tone & color
Striate (stretch marks)
Traumatic and surgical scars
Mild to moderate skin laxity
When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-4 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
