What is Botulinum Toxin?
Botulinum Toxin is more commonly referred to as Botox® to the public. It is a Neurotoxin derived from Clostridium Botulinum, an organism commonly found in nature. Neurotoxins are normally used to help relax muscles and skin tightening- reducing wrinkles.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT? When you come in for the actual procedure, we will apply a topical numbing gel to the treatment area(s) first. This will ensure that you have a comfortable experience. After the numbing gel sets in, we will use the IPL hand piece to deliver broad spectrums of light through gentle pulse technology to target your skin conditions. You may experience the sensation of heat or brief stinging from the pulses of energy. If we treat any hyperpigmentation on your body, those spots may darken after the procedure but they will eventually flake off. Over the next couple of weeks, your body’s natural healing process will work to replace the damaged cells.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE RESULTS?
While most facial veins can be treated successfully with 1 treatment, patients with hyperpigmentation may require additional sessions. On average, patients usually receive 1-6 sessions (spaced 1 month apart) for optimal results. A majority of patients notice improvement to their skin texture and tone, as well as a more rested appearance.*
