Can you believe October is here? Even though we still have warm temperatures, we’re pretty sure there is a chill in the air and we’re really happy about that! With the holidays right around the corner, October is the perfect month to double down on skincare and try to correct the sun damage that happened over the warmer months. If you’ve been noticing some hyper-pigmentation and sunspots recently, in most cases it’s the result of sun damage.
This month, we are offering a great deal on IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and Cynosure Emerge Fractional Laser + IPL.
IPL – Intense Pulse Light
If you haven’t tried IPL, this is the time. It’s very similar to other laser treatments, such as laser hair removal, in that they both use light and heat to destroy the target. In this case, it’s hyperpigmentation, coarse skin, spider veins, redness, and fine lines. This procedure is also great for treating rosacea.
Depending on the area, the process takes 30-60 minutes. The laser uses pulses of light to penetrate the skin deeply, which causes collagen and blood vessels just below the skin to constrict, which in turn reduces redness and age lines.
There can be some redness and swelling immediately following the procedure, and areas of hyperpigmentation, age spots and sun damage will appear to come to the surface before they naturally slough off. Following the treatment, you will need to stay out of the sun and use sunscreen. After 7-10 days, you should notice a visible improvement in the texture, firmness of your skin, as well as increased volume. These treatments are performed by a registered nurse or nurse practitioner on our staff. Take a look at the photo collage below of our girl Cassie and the progression of her treatment.

Cynosure Fractional Laser + IPL
The Fraxel Laser treatment is a non-invasive laser treatment that smooths the skin and reduces unwanted signs of aging, including wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, acne scars and stretch marks, with minimal downtime.
This laser treatment uses light energy heat to refresh the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, which plumps up deep wrinkles and fades scars.
Fraxel Laser technology can be used for:
- Wrinkles around the eyes
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Frown lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Facial wrinkles
- Acne Scars
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks (caused by weight loss or pregnancy)
When Fractional Laser is combined with IPL, it leads to increased improvement in the texture of the skin as well as an evener skin tone. As mentioned above, IPL is perfect to help permanently remove hyperpigmentation and the Fraxel Laser treatment will help with fine lines. Both treatments work to help stimulate collagen production and lessen the effects of visible signs of aging. With the addition of the IPL, you can expect some peppering of skin in the days following, but this can usually be camouflaged easily with concealer.
Our special pricing for Cynosure Fractional Laser + IPL this month is:
- IPL/Fraxel Laser Combo Face $450 (save $125)
- IPL/Fraxel Laser Combo Face & Neck $525 (save $225)
