An IPL photo facial treats sun damage, sunspots, rosacea, broken capillaries, cherry angiomas, port wine stains, birthmarks and freckles. IPL systems work on the same principles as lasers in that light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with colour (chromophores) in the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy, which causes damage to the specific target area and removes the colour from the skin. Treatment areas include the face, neck, decolletage, arms, hands and legs.
The main benefit of an IPL Photo Facial is an even skin tone with a more youthful appearance. For the Best Outcome, we recommend 4-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Another tip – always wear sunscreen!
Zero downtime. Pigmented spots will darken first and flake off approximately a week post treatment. Your skin will be clearer and more even in approximately 10 days. You must wear a sunscreen of SPF 45 or higher for at least 1 month post treatment.
Rosacea and the associated redness and skin inflammation can affect your self-confidence. Along with the redness, your skin may be sore, reactive to the environment, or become easily inflamed by certain foods.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by redness, blotchy patches, flushed skin, blushing, tiny red pimples, tiny veins (telangiectasias) or swelling. It primarily affects the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin—but may extend to the chest area. Rosacea often starts with slight redness or blushing, but may progress into persistent redness and inflamed skin that is uncomfortable, sore, or painful.
While Rosacea is a life-long condition, we can treat the signs and symptoms through laser and skin care.
