Sun-damaged skin? Refresh your face with IPL

Sun Damage

If you spent a little too much time in the sun this summer, come to the Emory Facial Center and get refreshed and rejuvenated for fall. A tried-and-true solution for repairing sun damage is IPL, intense pulsed light therapy. This photo therapy uses multiple wavelengths of visible light to treat a variety of conditions, including fine to moderate wrinkles, facial redness, Rosacea, skin discoloration and large pores.

IPL can be used to diminish surface red vessels and brown spots, such as those caused by sun exposure or aging. It’s especially effective combined with exfoliation and or a peel. Come see us and make sure your skin is ready for the cooler, drier weather to come.

Call 404-303-0101 today to schedule your consultation. To find out more about the Emory Facial Center’s services, visit us online at www.emoryfacialcenter.org
