Face & Skin Whitening

Sunlight, environmental factors and the natural passage of time all contribute to the development of dark spots, skin pigmentation and freckles. Your face, hands and chest are the first parts of the body to show signs of aging because they receive so much sun exposure. Laser and Intense Pulsed Light devices have been proven to successfully whiten and/or remove pigmented areas on the skin. Topical bleaching remedies can be used, but will only treat the surface not the root of the problem. Here at Pinecrest Medical Spa we believe in treating the root of the problem not just the surface. Whiten with confidence and love the skin you’re in.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is technically not a real Laser.  IPL, unlike Laser, uses white light composed of many frequencies (colors of light) compared to   Lasers that use only 1 wavelength (color) of light.  IPL with multiple light wavelengths has the ability to effectively treat multiple problems within the skin. Your skin can appear more youthful, radiant and bright.  IPL rejuvenates skin, all over the body, by painlessly using white light to penetrate into the skin’s dermis.

The system emits a broad spectrum of intense pulsed light through a small, smooth handpiece. The light is placed over the skin gently. Cut-off filters (four different filters for option)in the handpiece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions or for hair removal and then damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance. And at the same time, production of the collagen in dermis will be prompted to increase the flexibility of the skin and get rid of fine wrinkles.
