A clear complexion is something many people want, but even with the most meticulous skincare regimen, blemish-free skin can be difficult to achieve. Photorejuvenation, which uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, can help reduce the appearance of some of the most common skin woes, including brown spots, melasma, broken capillaries and sun damage. This minimally invasive skin procedure can also treat signs of aging such as wrinkles or age spots. There's very little recovery time and few side effects, making it a popular skin treatment.
