The electric light illuminates baseball fields, brightens libraries, and warns ever-wary cattle of impending alien abductions. Harness its electromagnetic versatility for beauty with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a photofacial treatment (a $150 value) at Aakara Medspa, located on Depot Square in Lexington. They also offer laser hair removal; ask at your appointment.
Aakara Medspa's educated aestheticians rejuvenate weary skin with a plethora of soothing, effective procedures, all under the direction of a medical physician. The photofacial treatment restores tattered countenances by utilizing intense pulsed light (IPL) technology and the body's natural cellular processes. Targeting specific facial lesions, the IPL system saturates epidermal tissue with a low wave of light, heating dark pigmentation and arming skin cells with an arsenal of microscopic light swords. The cellular skirmish raises dermal temperatures, zapping lesion tissue and causing the natural healing process within the skin to react to the affected tissue, making it scab and fall off or get absorbed by the body.
The recuperative skin session can treat a variety of issues, such as sun damage, age spots, spider veins, and unwanted freckles. It lasts 20–30 minutes and is nearly painless, though some clients can experience a mild burning sensation. Photofacials produce no lasting side effects, allowing postprocedure patients to immediately return to normal activities such as working and pole vaulting. Before beginning any procedures, all clients receive a free consultation with a physician to address any questions and discuss treatment options.
Though patients may continue any prescribed-medication regiments while receiving a photofacial, individuals who have a pacemaker are unable to undergo the treatment.
