ipl – Photofacial

Reveal a brighter and more even skin tone. Why? Because healthy skin is a status symbol.

Age spots, brown spots, sunspots and redness can make the skin look weathered. Erase the pigment of time on your face, neck and chest and turn up the radiance.

About IPL

IPL Photofacial (also known as Intense Pulsed Light or Photorejuvenation) is hailed as the “Gold Standard” treatment for the reduction of pigmentation.

Age spots, sun damage, rosacea, broken capillaries and freckles can create a dull and aged complexion. With IPL you can target this pigmentation to expose fresher, younger looking skin – something we all strive for!

Our clinic has been performing IPL for over 15 years and our patients from all over B.C, including Delta, Richmond, Burnaby and Surrey trust us as their #1 provider for this treatment. An IPL Photofacial treatment, at our clinic should be a standard part of your skin care routine.

How It Works

The light energy of the IPL targets the brown pigment and red cells in the skin. This light is converted into heat energy, which helps to fade those specific problem areas resulting in a more even, brighter complexion with less discolouration. IPL Photofacial has been performed in the lower Mainland for over 20 years, and there are many studies in the medical literature demonstrating true, anti-aging benefits.

Individuals who have had IPL Photofacial treatments once or twice a year over a decade have healthier more radiant skin with less skin cancer than those who do not have these treatments. Furthermore, for people who already have sun damage – IPL is a great tool to “turn back time” and reverse the damage that’s already been done!

Does an IPL treatment hurt?

Most patients tolerate the treatment with little discomfort. The sensation can be likened to snapping a rubber band on the skin at times. For sensitive individuals, we can provide a topical numbing cream to apply before the treatment.

How long will it take to see results?

Remember that it took you years to develop that pigmentation on your skin so it usually takes multiple treatments to fade as much as possible.

How much downtime will I have?

The usual length of time for the pigmentation on the face to gradually come to the surface and either slough off or fade is approximately 2 weeks.

Do I need a consultation for an IPL treatment?

Yes. Our practice is to meet all of our clients in a face to face consultation to ensure that the treatment you request is the right one for you, your concerns and your skin type.

What can an IPL treatment help with?

The IPL treatment can reduce brown pigmentation such as sun spots, freckles and scarring, address broken capillaries, rosacea and provide an overall facial rejuvenation and stimulation of collagen.
