About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Behinds the Scenes with IPL

Spots really on look cute on a Dalmatian! Though hyperpigmentation or sun/age spots are a common frustration with most women- I know they are for me. My freckles were cute & I dealt with them until I hit 25. But who doesn't want a more luminous & even skintone? Yes please! Research shows that people equate pigmentation with age & you know this girl is allergic to aging! There are several topical approaches to lightening the skin- vitamin C, Kojic Acid; as well as prescription methods such as Hydroquinone. Our Skin Medica chemical peels are a very popular treatment at the spa for evening out pigmentation concerns; while also improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. The next step we suggest {& often we suggest pairing it with a chemical peel) for stubborn spots is IPL.

So I wanted to take you behinds the scenes & show you what a treatment with Dr. Noelle Sherber with Intense Pulsed Light entails. Take a peek! IPL is often most successful when performed on skin that isn't tan- which is why our last laser event until the fall will be on June 21st! The laser can feel like little rubber bands snapping on the skin, but is very tolerable. For the next few days following the treatment, your spots will actually get a little darker before they flake off. The result? An amazing overall improvement in the brightness & evenness of your skin! Feel free to leave wither myself or Dr. Sherber a question in the comments section if you have one!

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
