Suffering From a Skin Condition?

An IPL Photo Facial Might Be Right For You

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. It can improve acne rosacea, treat irregular pigmentation, remove dark sun spots and reduce fine facial lines. IPL is a non-invasive skin treatment that is able to aid in erasing skin damage without breaching the skin’s surface. Because it does not disrupt the surface of your skin you will not experience downtime after the procedure. IPL is also a popular treatment because of its ability to treat a wide range of facial concerns safely and effectively including:

  • Broken capillaries
  • Skin discoloration
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Mottled pigment
  • Acne Rosacea

IPL works by emitting short blasts of high-intensity light which penetrates the skin’s surface. These bursts of energy produce heat, which your skin absorbs and uses to produce more collagen. This procedure rejuvenates your skin by blending its natural colours and making it look smoother, younger looking and more vibrant. How many treatments are required depends on the individual patient’s needs. To help you get the best results, your treatments will be also need to be personalized to improve effectiveness. To help ensure optimal results, doctors and medical aestheticians will provide patients with appropriate post-care treatment advice and warnings.

Though IPL can be used to treat skin on any area of the body, it tends to be used most on areas that are constantly exposed to sunlight including the face, neck and hands. This procedure works best on pale, untanned skin that is still somewhat elastic. Individuals with darker or olive toned complexions should discuss other treatment options with their doctor or medical aesthetician. This procedure is not recommended for pregnant women, or individuals who have taken Accutane to treat acne in the last 6 months.
