As the name suggests, IPL™ uses intense pulsed light to penetrate deep into your skin. Often referred to as fotofacial or photorejuvenation, the treatment boosts the production of collagen, a natural protein that can fill in wrinkles, helping make your skin smoother. The high energy light waves will also constrict blood vessels below the epidermis, which also helps reduce redness and age lines.
IPL™ is a versatile treatment option for your skin as different wavelengths of light can be used to treat various conditions, including the following:
Our staff is highly experienced and qualified to perform this type of therapy and we will let you know if it makes sense for you. Our medical spa offers a range of skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, non-chemical peels and OxyGeneo™. You have options and we are here to explain them to you.
Are you wondering if you are a viable candidate for a photofacial in Toronto from Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre? As a general rule, the best candidates are those with white, untanned skin that is somewhat elastic. While IPL™ is used for various conditions, if you have more pronounced facial lines or severe acne scars, other options may be more suitable. If you have tanned or naturally dark skin, this therapy may not be right for you as minor changes in skin pigmentation are possible.
Before we start treatment, you will be provided with eyewear to protect you from the intense pulses of light. A cool gel may be applied as a way to help cool your skin during treatment and to lubricate the handheld laser device. You may feel a warm sensation during the procedure and we may recommend icing down the area once completed to ease any discomfort. Many patients may find this isn’t necessary. Some redness and selling in and around the targeted area are normal. While you will notice a difference in your skin in the days to follow, the overall results are usually gradual and more visible in the weeks to come. The number of treatments you need will vary depending on your unique condition although it is common to undergo 3-5 sessions.
