IPL

Conveniently located to serve St. Louis, Des Peres, and surrounding areas

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy can help improve the appearance of darkening age spots, sun spots, rosacea, birthmarks, and freckles, and it can even improve the overall texture of your skin. IPL in St. Louis is used by dermatologists and aesthetic professionals to treat acne, to aid in hair removal, and to perform photofacials to reverse and prevent common signs of aging.

Intense pulsed light treatment tends to work best on those who have pale or light skin. It is also important to talk with your physician to see if you are a good candidate for IPL.
It is typically not recommended for those who have recently been in a tanning bed or have used tanning creams, sprays, or similar products; for those who currently take antibiotics for skin conditions; or for those who may currently have skin cancer.

How Does Intense Pulsed Light Work?

To put it simply, IPL therapy uses light energy to target particular colors in your skin. The light is then turned into heat energy, where it targets specific cells in the skin. Unlike common laser therapies specific to hair removal, IPL emits more than one wavelength of light, which helps it treat a broader spectrum of skin concerns.

What Should I Expect From IPL Treatments?

IPL therapy can come with mild discomfort. Therefore, you may ask your administering medical professional for topical numbing prior to treatment to help soothe any sensations of pain.

After the area of skin is cleansed, there will be a thin coat of gel applied before the IPL device is applied to the skin. You’ll see flashes of light and feel a mild snapping sensation near the skin being treated, and the treatment typically takes around 30 minutes or less to perform.

After treatment in the area is complete, the skin will be cleaned off again. A cold compress may be applied to the area, and moisturizer and sunscreen may be applied.

How Do I Prepare For My IPL Appointment?

Prior to each treatment, please inform us if you are taking any antibiotics or medications. There are some medications that may cause your skin to be sensitive to light treatments, such as IPL. Therefore, the treatment will need to be postponed. We advise these medications to be avoided for at least two full weeks before treatment. 

Treatment is not recommended for those that have recently been in a tanning bed or used self-tanning products. If self-tanning products have been applied, at least two weeks prior to treatment you will need to thoroughly cleanse the areas with an abrasive/exfoliating scrub to remove all product.

We advise against treatment on sunburned or recently sun-exposed skin and recommend that all patients wear sunscreen daily, with SPF of at least 30.

Please do not apply makeup, perfume, or lotions to the areas that will be treated.

After-Treatment Care

Always consult your physician for recommendations on skin regimens and products that can be used for after-treatment care to ensure the best results. Hydration with the right products will also help with the overall recovery of your skin. After treatment, it is common to notice subtle redness and swelling in the treated area.

Emily was amazing! I always see Raquel and when I had my IPL yesterday Emily made me feel so comfortable! She was so calming and so sweet. She made the entire experience so much better than if I were to have gone anywhere else. I will definitely be getting this treatment again, thanks to her.

How Many Treatments Are Needed and How Often?

It is common for patients to have anywhere from 3-6 IPL treatments, although this is dependent on the area of the skin you are treating, as well as what exactly is being treated. For example, treating age or sunspots may require fewer treatments than treating rosacea. Sessions should be done roughly 4 weeks apart to give the skin time to heal and rejuvenate between treatments.

Typically, patients begin seeing results just one week after treatment, with optimal results showing upon completion of the series.

At that point, we recommend one treatment per quarter, to continue to build and improve the skin. Patients who follow the one per quarter maintenance schedule report dramatic skin improvement over time.

How Much Do IPL Treatments Cost?

The cost of an IPL treatment varies by treatment area.  Below are the costs of just a few of the most popular treatment areas.

  • Face – $450
  • Chest – $450
  • Hands – $150
  • Back/Shoulders – $550
  • Full Arms – $450
  • Half Arms – $300
  • Full Legs – $650
  • Half Legs – $550
  • Neck – $250

💉My Botox will last how long?!⁠

A lot of people think Botox should work the same for 3-4 months. This is a common misconception about Botox. This chart will give you an idea of the duration of Botox from the time you get injected to when it is completely worn off.⁠

•Before: Botox is injected into specific muscles to help relax the muscle preventing/correcting lines and wrinkles.⁠

•Week 1: Botox is starting to kick in and by two weeks it will reach its maximum results.⁠

•Weeks 2-6: Botox is at its peak and little to no movement is present.⁠

•Week 8: Botox is starting to lose its effectiveness and movement will slowly start to appear over time.⁠

•3-4 months: Botox is completely worn off and muscle movement is back! Time for your next Botox treatment!

Love the skin you are in! 💕

This gorgeous glow up is a result of consistent:
✨Medical grade skincare
✨Botox

✨Medical Microneedling
✨Facials by the amazing @amyatnayakplasticsurgery

This is one of my best friends and the changes happen gradually over time; so when we compared her before and after pictures, we were both shocked at her transformation. Consistency is key!

⚠️ Tips You Should Save⚠️

With summer approaching, it's crucial that we take EXTRA precautions in protecting our skin. If you find yourself with a mild sunburn please remember the following:

☀️Mild sunburn symptoms typically include skin redness and pain.
☀️ After about 4-7 days, skin peeling may occur. You definitely want to stay out of the sun until the redness fades.
☀️Stay hydrated, and keep your skin cool.

Helpful home remedies for sunburn and heat rash include cool compresses and baths, loose-fitting clothing, and over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers.
Use a medical-grade lotion like our ✨Calming Cream✨ that combines aloe vera with a pop of hydrocortisone to soothe and moisturize sunburnt skin.

You can use the Calming Cream twice daily to alleviate symptoms and promote healing.

✨Link in our bio to our online store! Or purchase in office at either of our 2 locations.

"I typically tell patients filler lasts 9 months - 1 year (sometimes longer and sometimes shorter) This is a great example of filler longevity!
….
The bottom photo is one year after tear trough filler and the filler still looks great!

She came in this week thinking it was time since it had been a year; we pulled up her photos and we were thrilled to see how great her filler is still holding up! I had to turn her away. 🙂"

ULTHERAPY ⭐️ A COLLAGEN COMEBACK ⭐️

Collagen works to give skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity.
.
Using ultrasound imaging and therapy, Ultherapy generates a thermal effect at the layers of skin where it will benefit you most. This jump-starts your body’s own ability to create fresh, new collagen. The result is lifted and tightened skin.
.
Results appear 3-6 months after one treatment.
.
While results won’t duplicate surgical intervention, Ultherapy is a great non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery. It is also an excellent treatment to maintain one’s youthful appearance and push back the need for surgery down the road.

"Results like these are what I mean when I say filler can and SHOULD look natural. I’m not here to make you look like a different person, I’m just here trying to make you look and feel like the best version of YOURSELF!"🙌

With this patient, @taylorterveer did a total of 3 syringes to give this refreshed and natural look to the following areas:

👄#lipfiller
💁‍♀️#cheekfiller
👁️#teartroughfiller

Her goal was to soften the hollowness under the eyes, add a little “pop” to her cheekbones, and give a subtle “pout” to the lips. She also does maintenance Botox treatments every 3-4 months, as well as uses a full customized medical-grade skincare regimen to address any superficial texture or hyperpigmentation.

Photos were taken and posted with patient consent. Approximately 4 weeks had passed between the two photos, making this her fully healed result.

𝘌𝘹𝘧𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨: can I still do this while pregnant? If I can’t use chemical peels, then what can I do?⁣ ⁣

Exfoliating increases the cell turnover rate, which is beneficial for skin renewal and keeps us looking radiant and fresh. It encourages⁣ the removal of dead skin cells - unclogging pores and preventing blackheads!⁣ ⁣

Like chemical peels, enzyme treatments also help to dissolve dead skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin. However, enzyme peels are much more gentle and can’t reach the placenta or baby like chemical peels. ⁣

One of my 𝗙𝗔𝗩𝗢𝗥𝗜𝗧𝗘 exfoliating treatments for myself and my clients is the Face Reality Hydrating Enzyme Mask, which uses the enzymes from Papaya!⁣ ⁣

The 𝙃𝙮𝙙𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙀𝙣𝙯𝙮𝙢𝙚 𝙈𝙖𝙨𝙠 includes:⁣

✨𝘗𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘪𝘯: an enzyme derived from papaya that helps digest keratin proteins to aid in exfoliation and contains anti-inflammatory properties⁣ ⁣

✨𝘗𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘺𝘢 𝘍𝘳𝘶𝘪𝘵 𝘌𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘵: an antioxidant that is high in Vitamin C and beta-carotene⁣ ⁣

✨𝘚𝘲𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘦: contains moisturizing and protective properties, and helps boost the skin’s ability to retain⁣ moisture⁣

✨𝘈𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘰𝘪𝘯: soothing, moisturizing, anti-irritant, promotes healthy cell renewal⁣ ⁣

✨𝘉𝘪𝘴𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘭: contains anti-inflammatory, soothing, and healing properties⁣ ⁣

✨𝘍𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘦𝘣𝘪𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘛𝘔: a heptapeptide that helps promote microbiota balance and diversity, and helps boost the skin’s own defense system by favoring the presence of beneficial bacteria, improving the skin immune response and the physical barrier integrity⁣ ⁣

DM me to set up your next facial using the Hydrating Enzyme Treatment ⁣ ⁣
