IPL Skin Treatments

Shambala’s Intense Pulse Light (IPL) machine is one of the most advanced available. Along with permanent hair reduction, we are able to perform the following professional IPL Skin Treatments:

  • skin rejuvenation facial to soften fine lines and improve skin tone and texture
  • reduction of pigmentation (sun spots) on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands
  • reduction of vascular lesions on the cheeks and nose
  • acne management programs

Each IPL skin treatment program is individually costed following a comprehensive 30-minute consultation which includes skin imaging and a patch test. The cost is determined by the size of the treatment area and the estimated number of sessions required.

I am delighted with the way my skin has responded after only one Pearl Facial. My skin looks refreshed, smooth and radiant and my sun damage has reduced considerably. Daniella has been my dermal technician for over a year and her professionalism and experience have always produced great long-lasting results for my skin.  Ashley M.
