Starting in your early 30s, collagen and elastin production decreases and cell turnover begins to decline. This makes it more difficult for the skin to recover from an injury or inflammation. These factors of decline begin to express themselves on the surface of the skin as brown spots and discoloration. You may also notice visible capillaries, uneven skin tone, and fine lines or wrinkles. Treating these concerns with intense pulsed light will help show improvement.

Also known as photorejuvenation or a photo-facial, intense pulsed light is a non-ablative treatment. This treatment emits intense, visible pulses of light to a targeted area without damaging any of the surrounding skin. The light energy is absorbed by melanin, which is responsible for skin pigment, and hemoglobin, red blood cells. These structures become damaged as a result and are absorbed by the body or brought to the surface of the skin. When brought to the surface, they are then sloughed off.

Intense pulsed light has been successful in addressing fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, visible capillaries, and redness. A series of anywhere from 3-5 treatments are usually recommended for optimal results even though results may be visible after just one session. Intense pulsed light is non-invasive and requires very little downtime; for this reason, it can be repeated once a month or as advised by your skincare professional.


How does IPL Photofacial work?

Intense Pulsed Light is a laser therapy involving shining a highly concentrated and intense beam of light with intermittent pulses onto the skin’s surface. The beam of light is referred to as photo, and facial refers to the face and neck region. These pulses of light target pigment and vascular irregularities, smoothing out the texture and skin tone.

IPL therapy helps in reducing the effects of aging, leaving clients with clearer, younger, and healthier-looking skin. IPL is not to be confused with laser therapy. Laser therapy only uses one particular wavelength of light, whereas IPL therapy produces a spectrum of light.

Is an IPL Photofacial safe?

Yes. When IPL is performed correctly by a certified, experienced technician, IPL Photofacial therapy is both safe and effective.

As a professional skin-care clinic, we will not perform any procedures without first assessing your complete medical history, current health condition, and any potential complications you may have. Additionally, we provide all clients with protective eyewear that must be worn during treatment.

Am I required to book a consultation prior to being treated?

Yes, you will need to book a complimentary consultation appointment for you with one of our certified technicians before scheduling any skin-rejuvenation treatment. This is for your own protection, and there are no exceptions. At this time, you should also share with us any past experience you have had with skin rejuvenation and/or laser skin treatments.

What are the benefits of IPL Photofacial treatment?

IPL Photofacial therapy treatments require no anesthetic. They also involve little or no downtime because it’s a non-invasive procedure. As few as one or two treatments have been shown to reduce spots, smooth uneven pigmentation, and help repair broken facial capillaries and veins. The redness that’s associated with rosacea can also be reduced using this treatment. Additional therapies will continue to improve tone, texture, and stimulate the dermis to produce more collagen.
