IPL skin photo-rejuvination

Photo-rejuvenation is an exciting new procedure designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin. As most of us age, we begin to see small but visible signs of sun damage appearing in our complexion. This may include freckles, Rosacea, wrinkles, broken capillaries, dark spots, blotchy skin colour, redness of the face and neck, enlarged pore size and sun damage.

 

Photo rejuvenation, known as IPL treatment, is the only procedure that can treat vascular redness, pigmented brown spots, sun damage and the collagen structure all at the same time.

 

With the use of the new IPL technology, dramatic improvements can now be accomplished with little or no hiding away and with minimal discomfort.

Patients with minimal wrinkles, but blotchy uneven texture with facial blood vessels can expect great improvement. Those with severe wrinkles and scars will require a more assertive treatment program.

Will I have any discomfort?

 Full face treatments may be a bit uncomfortable. No aesthetic/ needles are required.


How to prepare for treatment sessions:

 

A facial skin care program will be outlined for you that can be started before you commence your treatments and also be used as a maintenance program. The face should be clean and free of all make up. Emla can be applied to the planned treatment areas 30-60 minutes prior to your sessions. Avoid tanning before and after your “LIGHT FACIALS” as this will enhance blotchiness.

How often can the treatments be performed?

 For most patients 3-5 treatment sessions spaced at 2-4 weeks apart create the best result. Looking after your face is like maintaining your teeth or your car. A repeat “Light Facial” may be required once a year plus your personal facial program reviewed for you.

 

Side Effects:

What are the side effects?

 

The appearance of skin right after treatment is similar to what you will see after a good exercise workout. The flushing and redness will last from a few minutes to several hours after treatment. If your skin is quite loose, you may experience some swelling. Brown age spots and uneven pigmentation will turn slightly darker after treatment
