A photo-rejuvenation treatment can take care of many skin conditions like sun damage & red spots.

Whether you want to treat age spots or broken capillaries, an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) procedure can provide you with a smoother and more youthful appearance.

What is IPL?

IPL is a non-invasive skin rejuvination procedure that delivers controlled pulses through multiple layers of skin to treat a skin condition as well as stimulates the growth of collagen. The treatment can address skin issues such as acne, brown spots, skin tone discoloration, uneven facial redness, and broken capillaries. The concentrated pulses of light can cause a chemical change in the skin cells and break up pigmentation in the skin.

IPL delivers different wavelengths to different chromophores within the skin. The photo-rejuvenation procedure can be tailored to a patient’s specific condition and skin type and treat various areas of the body, including the face, neck, and hands. There are many advantages to getting IPL in Vancouver with treatments that can deliver a smoother and glowing skin.

Top Benefits of IPL

IPL uses photo-rejuvenation to deliver pulses of visible light on the body, especially across the face, to penetrate deep into the skin. The procedure usually takes about half an hour to an hour and is a non-ablative, non-invasive treatment. A topical numbing cream can be applied for comfort during the procedure.

A laser device is used over the patient’s skin to evenly distribute light pulses at the targeted area. There is minimal pain with many Vancouver IPL patients describing it as a flick of a rubber band against the skin. There may be some redness for a few hours after the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for IPL?

If you are looking to treat skin conditions such as age or brown spots, broken capillaries, freckles, and rosacea, you may be a good candidate for an IPL procedure.

What are the results of IPL?

It depends on how many treatments you receive as results with IPL are gradual over the course of several visits. On average, it is recommended to have 3 treatments every 4 - 6 weeks. Ask us about customizing a plan to address your specific areas of need.

What is the recovery from IPL?

An IPL treatment is a fairly straightforward and safe procedure. There may be a minor burning sensation for an hour or so following your treatment. You may also experience pinkness at the treated area for a few hours. If you have pigmented spots treated, they may darken a little for a few days before fading. Same with brown spots and melasma, which may darken temporarily for up to a week.

Most Vancouver IPL patients return to work and resume normal activities immediately after their treatment. You should wait a day or so before exercising. You should avoid any sun exposure until the treated area has completely healed.
