Eliminate your skin discoloration and uneven skin tone with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy treatments. The IPL Photofacial is a revolutionary method of photo rejuvenation that improves your skin’s texture, tone and appearance. A series of IPL photofacial treatments will diminish flushing or redness of the skin associated with Rosacea, reduce hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage and age, erase broken capillaries, and smooth roughly textured skin. IPL therapy also stimulates new collagen to form, thereby reducing fine lines, minimizing pore size and mild acne scarring, and increasing skin elasticity.
During your IPL series, you will notice imperfections fade away as a more radiant, healthier and clearer complexion appears
Frequently Asked Questions
How does VelaShape II work?
3 technologies work together to deliver state-of-the-art results that are unique to this treatment. Infrared light heats upper-level tissue while the bi-polar radio frequency passes deeper into fatty areas. A gentle vacuum lightly brings the skin close to the handheld device. This enables collagen formation to increase and the skin cell metabolism to improve, creating more elastic skin as it smoothens cellulite away.
Is a VelaShape II treatment right for me?
Guests who are not drastically far from their ideal weight/size (<30 BMI) are ideal candidates for VelaShape II. The treatment was designed to improve skin laxity, reduce fat, and smooth cellulite. It is safe for all skin types and colors. Guests desiring a non-invasive method with no downtime or pain are encouraged to talk to their healthcare professional about VelaShape II.
What is the procedure like?
Your healthcare professional will begin by applying a protective gel if necessary. A handheld device is applied directly to the skin. Mechanical rollers will gently massage and smooth the skin while the infrared and radio-frequency painlessly pass into the outer layers of the skin. The treatment usually lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. Guests often describe the feeling as a warm, kneading massage.
How many treatments will I need?
Each guest is different, so the amount of treatments differ per each situation. Guests may expect as little as 1 treatment but usually take 3 to 4 to achieve their optimal aesthetic. Results are usually observed gradually throughout these treatments.
What are the benefits of the treatment?
VelaShape II is a relatively painless treatment, offering little to no discomfort. Guests who desire a non-invasive option to reducing fat with zero downtime feel this treatment is ideal.
Aesthetically, guests observe a benefit in the improved laxity of skin. Guests observe a smoothing of cellulite and notice that their skin is more contoured from the reduction of fat cells.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Guests can expect to return to their daily life after the treatment. Unlike other options for reducing cellulite and fat, VelaShape II has no downtime or pain. Some guests observe a temporary redness or heat around the treated area for the initial few hours following the treatment, but this disappears rapidly. After consultation with your healthcare professional, additional treatments (of similar or differing types) may be suggested to maintain the desired result, but this is not always necessary.
Where can I receive my treatment?
You can get receive VelaShape II at any one of our locations in Fresno, Visalia, and San Luis Obispo.
