Our Therapists are now able to offer IPL based acne management programs for their clients. These unique laser acne treatments are designed to specifically slow the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimizing the appearance of pores in general. Results will vary, but most people will see a significant improvement in skin condition. Treatment should be spaced approximately 1-2 weeks apart.
