The difference between IPL and laser treatment IPL is similar to laser treatment. However, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases the light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash. The light from IPL is more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin. Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. Or, it destroys the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing again. You can use IPL anywhere on your body, but it may not work as well on uneven areas. It isn’t recommended for people who tend to get thick, raised keloid scars or who have darker skin tones. It’s also not as effective on light-colored hair as it is on darker hair.
We charge a $50.00 fee to patients who do not keep their scheduled appointments If this should happen more than once, a charge will be incurred for the second incident. While we make every effort to provide you with plenty of appointment reminders it is your responsibility to remember your appointment date and time. “No Show” fees will be billed to the patient. This fee is not covered by insurance, and must be paid prior to your next appointment. Multiple “no shows” in any 12 month period may result in termination from our practice. We understand that special unavoidable circumstances may cause you to not make your appointment time. Fees in this instance may be waived, but only with our management approval. We ask that you please be courteous of our staffs valuable time and attention.
