Specialty Laser Facials
WHAT IS AN IPL FACIAL?
Here at Onyx Wellness can safely treat any benign hyperpigmentation including café au lait birthmarks, sun spots, age spots, and even freckles. Any and all parts of the body can be treated. This includes face, arms, hands, chest, legs etc.
WHAT IS A CARBON FACIAL?
a layer of liquid carbon to your face and allow it to dry. The carbon will absorb the dead skin on the upper layer of your skin, and the dirt deep inside of your pores. Now, your esthetician will pass a non-ablative laser across the surface of your skin. The laser energy will break the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants as well as oil with it. Also, the laser energy will deliver heat into the deep layer of the skin to help shrink pores as well as trigger collagen production.
ARE IPL AND CHARCOAL FACIALS SAFE?
Yes, both facials are safe and effective. Here at Onyx Wellness, we assess your medical history, current health conditions, and skincare before performing any treatment. We also provide all clients with protective eyewear that must be worn during an IPL or Charcoal Laser Facial.
ARE IPL OR CHARCOAL FACIALS PAINFUL?
Most experience it as a short pinprick. We can and do cool the skin during a treatment and in return, helps to minimize any potential discomfort.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN IPL FACIAL?
As few as one or two treatments can reduce spots, smooth uneven pigmentation, help repair broken facial capillaries and veins, and reduce the redness associated with rosacea. Additional treatments will continue to improve tone, texture, and stimulate the dermis to produce more collagen.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF AN IPL / CHARCOAL FACIAL?
You may experience small raised bumps and redness within the treatment area shortly after your treatment. This will subside anywhere in between a couple hours or in a few days. In the case they do not subside, do not be alarmed. Contact us and we will guide you on aftercare or if medical assistance is necessary.
TIME WISE, HOW LONG ARE LASER FACIALS?
A typical laser facial is 30 minutes. There is little to no downtime at all; these facials are notorious for being done on your lunch break!
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments depends on your skin and the issues you are addressing. For IPL facials, we typically book in packages of 3. While the Charcoal Facial we can do singularly or in a package.
