Men and IPL and Photorejuvenation Laser Treatments

The IPL and Photorejuvenation group of laser cousins gently reduces lighter brown spots, enlarged blood vessels, and redness. These laser-like devices have been around for a long time and can be quite effective in the hands of a trained and skilled laser provider with the right device (some spas use devices with lower "power" than medical offices).


The IPL Photorejuvenation devices can, however, stunt hair growth in the beard area. For that reason, men who have this treatment should make sure their laser provider doesn’t treat over hair-bearing areas.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
