Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-invasive surgical treatment that uses broad spectrum light to treat hyperpigmentation, rosacea, sun damage, or in the case of IPL hair removal, get rid of unwanted hair follicles. At Koger Cosmetic Clinic & MedSpa, we use the Nordlys™ laser system for IPL treatments, thanks to its powerful Ellipse IPL™ technology. The Ellipse IPL™ system has improved the technology behind IPL treatments, offering faster pulses of light and advanced targeting strategies to improve results.
IPL photofacial can give your complexion a youthful appearance by revitalizing your face, neck and hands, using intense pulses of light directed at the skin’s surface. The light breaks up blemishes to improve your skin’s texture and tone. The Ellipse IPL™ skin rejuvenation system, as it is an effective solution for many patients who are looking to address cosmetic skin concerns with IPL technology and requires virtually no downtime.
Facial Vein Treatment
Facial vein treatment can be an effective solution to spider veins, rosacea and related conditions that affect the appearance and clarity of the skin. By targeting and heating individual veins, they will close up and blood flow will discontinue. After this happens, the veins will gradually fade from view, leaving you with clearer skin.
