Have you been noticing some hyper-pigmentation and sunspots recently? Well, in most cases, it’s the result of sun damage. Help is on the way with our October specials!
This month, we are offering a great deal on IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and our SkinCeuticals Advanced Pigment Peel.
If you haven’t tried IPL, this is the time. It’s very similar to other laser treatments, such as laser hair removal, in that they both use light and heat to destroy the target. In this case, it’s hyperpigmentation, coarse skin, spider veins, redness and fine lines. This procedure is also great for treating rosacea.
Depending on the area, the process takes 30-60 minutes. The laser uses pulses of light to penetrate the skin deeply, which causes collagen and blood vessels just below the skin to constrict, which in turn reduces redness and age lines.
There can be some redness and swelling immediately following the procedure, and areas of hyperpigmentation, age spots and sun damage will appear to come to the surface before they naturally slough off. Following the treatment, you will need to stay out of the sun and use sunscreen. After 7-10 days, you should notice a visible improvement in the texture, firmness of your skin, as well as increased volume. These treatments are performed by a registered nurse or nurse practitioner on our staff. Our Esthetician, Cassie, had an IPL treatment last winter, and you can see the progression of her results in the image below.
IPL per Treatment Offer
Face $199 (regularly $225)
Face/Neck $250 (regularly $300)
Face/Neck/Chest $350 (regularly $425)
Arms $250 (regularly $275)
Hands $100 (regularly $125)
If you aren’t quite ready for IPL but are looking for a less intense anti-aging treatment, we are also offering a special on our SkinCeuticals Advanced Pigment Peel. This peel is like liquid IPL because it is formulated with an exclusive blend of clinical-grade acids that dramatically diminish the appearance of discoloration associated with hyper-pigmentation, age spots, and sun damage. It will smooth the texture and refine the appearance of pores, restoring a brighter, more clarified skin tone.
We are offering this peel for $165 (regularly $185) this month.
If you have any questions about either of these treatments, please call us at 310-375-0717 – we are always happy to discuss your skin care needs! Both of these treatment specials expire on October 31, 2017, so book early!
Also, if you have little ones, Riviera Village will be closing Catalina Avenue again on Tuesday, October 31 for trick-or-treating! The boutique & spa will be closing at 5 pm that day, but we will be passing out candy after that while supplies last!
