You don't have to live with sun-damaged skin, freckles and age spots anymore. The Apollo SC uses quick and effective photo-facial treatments to clear those pigmented and vascular (spider veins) lesions, while improving skin tone and texture. Other added benefits of photo-facial treatments are the reduction in pore size and fine lines and wrinkles to give you a fresher, smoother, more youthful appearance.
The best acne treatment for the most common skin problem, affecting not only teenagers, but up to 80% of people in their 20’s and 30’s. This stubborn condition is typically treated with oral and topical medications, which can produce good results but often with undesirable side effects.
Intense Pulse Light offers an effective alternative acne treatment. The light pulses attack acne on two fronts:
• Penetrates into the hyperactive sebaceous glands to slow down the production of sebum, which can clog pores and cause future acne breakouts.
• The IPL Acne treatment rapidly gets to work and destroys acne bacteria for a quick clearance of current acne breakouts.
IPL Hair Removal
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments can take from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on which area is being treated. Only hair in the active growth stage of the growth cycle is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 2-8 weeks, depending on the site treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The number of treatments required varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are required for maximum results.
Intense pulsed light systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by melanin, the pigment in hair. This heats up the hair and destroys the cells responsible for hair growth, to achieve long term hair reduction.
