What is IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light is a technology where light is converted into heat energy.
Treatments are like a very powerful camera flash lamp being held against your skin.
The selected light waves target chromophores (colour pigments) such as melanin in brown spots and freckles; and such as haemoglobin in broken or diffused blood vessels. The light waves can also target specific protein molecules in acne bacteria and in collagen. IPL treats all conditions without disruption to the skin’s surface.
Am I required to book a consultation prior to being treated?
Yes, we will book a complimentary consultation appointment for you with one of our certified technicians prior to scheduling any skin-rejuvenation treatment. This is for your own protection, and we cannot make 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 treatment?
IPL Photofacial treatments require no anesthetic and they involve little or no downtime. As few as one or two treatments can reduce spots, smooth uneven pigmentation, help repair broken facial capillaries and veins, and reduce the redness associated with rosacea. Additional treatments will continue to improve tone, texture, and stimulate the dermis to produce more collagen.
How long is a typical treatment?
A typical treatment can last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Because there is little or no downtime, you can have an IPL Photofacial during your lunch break.
How many treatments will I need?
The ideal number of treatments will depend upon your skin and the issues you wish to address. We sell series of both three and series of six treatments to achieve optimum results.
