IPL | Photofacial in Ogden, Utah

Restore skins youthful appearance with IPL, Intense Pulse Light

The IPL, commonly known as Photofacial, uses a board spectrum of light that pulses through the skins surface. Using different hand pieces, we are able to change the wavelength, which allows us to optimize the treatment for different skin conditions. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by the blood vessels, when treating vascular areas, or melanin, when treating pigmentation.

When the blood absorbs the light, your body’s natural healing response is triggered, breaking down the damaged cells and forming new cells which creates the appearance of youthful, refreshed skin. The process is similar when melanin is absorbed by light. This process causes the breakdown of pigment into smaller particles that rise to the skins surface and flake away as part of your natural healing process.

  • How long does eyebrow tinting last?
    Each individual is different when it comes to lasting color. On average, our brow tinting lasts between 3-6 weeks. Factors that may affect the duration of your color include: how much pressure you use when you wash, use of exfoliant in the area, what type of makeup remover you use, sun exposure, sunscreen use and how quickly your hair cycles.
  • How long does a brow wax last?
    To keep your brow shape looking great, we recommend waxing every 2-3 weeks. Eyebrow hair tends to become more noticeable outside the boundaries of the brow if it’s not maintained frequently, leaving your shape on the unruly side.
  • What are the side effects of brow wax and tinting?
    Most people who tint their eyebrows do not experience any side effects. However, if you wax your brows there are some possible side effects, which may include: pain, redness, irritation, temporary bumps, ingrown hair, sun sensitivity and possible bleeding. Talk to our master aesthetician to determine your risks and what’s best for your skin type so we can reduce the possible side effects
  • Is waxing less painful than tweezing?
    Waxing is ideal for those who are adverse to the pain and time associated with plucking or tweezing. The process of waxing takes less time and can cover more area than plucking hair one at a time. If you’ve got thick or coarse hair, or if you need a larger area of hair removed, waxing is a quicker, better choice.
