Blemish-free skin is possible! Truth + Beauty Spa offers brown and red spot treatment options to erase the signs of sun damage and aging. Discover what causes brown and red spots and how to remove them for a brighter, more even skin tone.
About Brown + Red Spots
Clear your brown and red spots with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments at Truth + Beauty! Red spots are caused by broken red blood vessels, while brown spots are made of melanin, the brown pigment in freckles and age spots.The intense pulsed light beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by either the hemoglobin or melanin, which results in damage to the vessel wall or the fragmenting of melanin pigment. Once the tiny blood vessels and/or melanin pigment are absorbed by the body, they are less visible.
About IPL Treatments/The Photofacial
Intense Pulsed Light treatments, also known as the Photofacial are ideal for erasing mild sun damage, freckles, irregular pigmentation, red spots and brown spots on the face, neck and chest. This non-invasive treatment draws out unwanted pigment left behind by sun while increasing collagen production. Control rosacea, tighten pores, reduce fine lines and build collagen on your face, hands, legs and chest.
How IPL Works
IPL uses short blasts of a polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin’s surface, damaging either the melanin that makes up brown “age spots” or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The skin repairs the damage, leaving you with a more even skin tone. IPL is also touted as a way to boost collagen and elastin.
