The Magic of an Outstanding Photo Facial
A clear complexion is something many people want, but even with the most meticulous skincare regimen, blemish-free skin can be difficult to achieve. IPL’s (Photo Facials) can help reduce the appearance of some of the most common skin woes, including brown spots, melasma, broken capillaries and sun damage. However, the success of an IPL is heavily dependent on the skill of the technician, their knowledge of the physiology of the condition and their technical expertise in the delivery of the laser.
At Novak Laser Boutique, our approach to improving a skin condition with lasers include state-of-the-art intense pulsed light (IPL) technology, top rated antioxidants and skincare products. We have evolved a successful IPL technique using different wavelengths of light to address various aspects of the targeted condition (s). We customize the wavelength, number of pulses, duration of pulses, delay between pulses, and power delivered to best match the relative depth, size, and absorption characteristics of the targeted condition. As each wavelength is used, the placement of the hand piece crystal on the face is varied throughout the treatment to ensure all areas are reached. This flexibility and variability allows us to maximize results. Wavelengths are selected according to each individual client, taking into consideration the condition, the skin type, the calculated depth of the epidermis and location and direction of the skin problem. These are just some of the factors involved in selecting parameters and wavelengths, which is done at the first consultation and throughout each subsequent treatment session.
At Novak Laser Boutique, we conduct a full assessment of the client condition and needs, based on the knowledge and experience we have gained over the years. The client is also given detailed information on how IPL works. A package of normally four treatments is suggested, spaced three to four weeks apart. Clients may come for touch-up treatments as a preventive measure. We usually recommend twice a year, but on occasion we have had clients return after a couple years mostly for rejuvenation purposes.
As technology keeps improving, side effects became less and less common; hence, today they have almost completely disappeared. Now, any redness will likely dissipate within 20 minutes following treatment. At Novak Laser Boutique, we use IPL technology that is capable of producing excellent results without any downtime, after-effects or complications that were once associated with IPL.
The technical ability and experience of the Laser Technician, is vital to achieving optimum results. Call us to schedule a complimentary consultation.
