What is IPL Photorejuvenation?
Short for Intense Pulsed Light, IPL photorejuvenation is also known as a photofacial. This popular treatment features multiple wavelengths of pulsed light that treat a wide range of skin conditions underneath the skin surface.
IPL photorejuvenation has been shown to successfully treat several cosmetic skin concerns on the face, hands, neck and chest, including:
- Broken blood vessels
- Age spots
- Dark spots
- Texture irregularities
What are the Benefits of IPL Photorejuvenation?
When compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels and other lasers, IPL photorejuvenation has several advantages:
- IPL photorejuvenation is non-invasive and non-surgical, creating dramatic results with zero downtime
- As IPL bypasses the skin surface, there is minimal discomfort and no scarring
- Depending on the areas being treated, IPL photorejuvenation can be accomplished in about 20-30 minutes and is easy to fit into any busy schedule
- This treatment targets cosmetic concerns underneath the skin at a cellular level, a level of rejuvenation that is unattainable with many alternative treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate for IPL Photorejuvenation?
During your consultation at Lougheed Laser Centre, our medical team will evaluate your individual condition and other factors to determine if IPL photofacial is right for you. Ideal candidates are typically light-skinned individuals without a tan, and we will help you determine the best course of treatment to achieve your desired results.
Is IPL Photorejuvenation Safe?
While other skin rejuvenation treatments can irritate or damage the skin and cause scarring, IPL photorejuvenation is proven to be safe and effective with no healing time necessary. A few days of slight redness are commonly experienced after treatment, but should subside quickly.
How Long Will My Results Last?
While IPL photorejuvenation can improve the look and feel of your skin after just one treatment, multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve your desired results. As the skin ages, maintenance sessions are typically recommended in order to add longevity to your clearer, healthier skin.
